Missionary Work is so Awesome - Jun 13, 2011

Aloha Everyone! Well the work is coming along!  I love to be of service to anyone in need.  Sometimes I do get hardened but the Lord always softens my heart once again so that I may give and love freely.  I love to work with investigators and see them come unto Christ through the covenant of baptism but I equally love working with the less actives.  I feel such a connection with them.  When a less active becomes converted again it reminds me of the feeling I had coming back into the church.  Missionary work is so awesome!  I still can't believe I'm here.  The year has gone by so quickly and I feel it's going even quicker now that I'm over the hump!
The work is crazy out here.  Always moving, always thinking, always praying, always working.  I feel so exhausted and I love it.  It's the exhaustion that is so satisfying and gratifying. So awesome! This week was great. Found a couple of new investigators.  We are really trying to improve and step it up!  I can't wait to get back out and just do it!  Keep in touch and thank for the update. I'll talk to you next week!

So this past week we were able to have a baptism.  Kayla Budija. She is a 10 yr old girl that my companion and his previous companion have been working with for a while, ans she was able to get baptized by her father, a recent convert.  It was so awesome and her mother, Sister Budija, who converted a long time ago, was so ecstatic to have been able to see her husband get the priesthood and baptize their daughter!  That was the highlight of the week.  We are just trucking along, getting fat from all this wonderful Virginian food!  I love and miss you all!  I didn't get any email love this week! :(  That's okay!  Let me know how thing are going.  Thanks for all the snail mail!!!  Until next week!
