Things are going really well in my mission. I love to be a missionary. We aren't have the most baptisms we every had or even finding a ton. The work is good but not where it should be and we are working on that. But we are working our hardest and I absolutely sharing this Gospel with everyone. It is true. It is not a lie it is 100% true and I know it is. I love it and I love you and pray for each of you every day and for your success in all aspects but especially the Gospel. Please never lose focus that the Gospel and living it IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING. There is no real and lasting happiness outside the plan of happiness so let's not look.
We had a wonderful zone conference with Elder Golden and he is just amazing. My interview with him was great and I love him. He told me to tell you today that he says I am an exceptional missionary. I loved every minute of the interview and wish I could go on a plane ride with him around the world so we could just talk. He has a great South African accent.
For transfers we are staying the same and I am in Ceres with Elder Gygi. The zone is doing so well and we are so excited about this month and the following. Right now after emails we are going to Patterson, a near by city in the zone, and we are going to play football and rugby but not tackle cause we can't. A ton of Tongans live in Patterson so we go to play with them. I can't wait.
We have a baptism this weekend of an 11 year old girl named Yaniri Piza. She is the daughter of a recently activated man who is doing really well right now. We have some others who will be baptized soon as well at the end of the month or October.
Please do your scripture study every day. EVERY DAY. Please I know that in prayer twice a day and in daily study is found the strength that our family NEEDS (like is essential) in order to become an eternal family one day. It is a COMMANDMENT to read and pray every day. Do it cause you love our Saviour and honor Him, His life and example. Go share this with everyone and don't let our family reunion in heaven be short even one person. We all need to make it home. I love you all SOOOOOOOOOO much I can't describe and I pray for each of you and think of you even though I fail at writing you. I LOVE YOU!
