How's it going??  I loved conference this year.  I really enjoyed the talks and took a lot out of it.  I really loved President Monsons.  It was such a great message and kind of ties in with President Uchtdorf's talk.  "Fear not, I am with thee..." Hit me really hard.  I spend a good amount of time after conference looking up verses in which he tells his disciples that.  I love knowing that when we are doing what the Lord asks he is always with us, through the good and the bad.  
 
I am doing just fine out here.  Struggles here and there but alls good.  It's so weird how you learn so much about your flaws out here. haha.  It's good though. Helps me to repent!!!  Was thinking about my life the other day and evaluating where I am now.  It's so crazy how much I've changed.  I'm still here but there is still many things that have developed, and good habits that I've picked up that I hope will help to shape me into an even better person.  I remember hearing once that I won't be the same person, that the mission would change me.....boy were they right.  I have had so many experiences out here and my mind has been opened so much, I almost don't want to let this great experience end.  But there will be many more wonderful experiences to enjoy after the mission. I just hope I can take everything that I've learned so far and apply it in the "real world".  With such a short time left (I know, seven months isn't short, but it seems to go in a blink of an eye out here) I want to work my butt off.  I want to see miracles happen each day of my life out here and I want to be able to grow twice as much as I have so far!  What a great desire!  Now....to only accomplish it! hehe. 
 
Anyway, if you haven't heard I'm out in Annapolis and loving it.  It's such a pretty city and I'm getting so fit with all the bike riding and motivation to keep in shape by all the Navy midshipmen out here.  Unfortunately I'm not gaining any weight but I feel like I'm a little stronger than the start of my mission!  We'll I'll let you go for now. Please tell everyone....and I mean everyone!....that I love them, miss them and say hello to them for me!  A hui hou a me malama pono.
