 How is everybody?  (Not a hypothetical question. You should really let me know.)

So it's been a great week here in the California Fresno Mission in the Kerman ward and branch!  I love it so much!  Great members!  Great investigators!  Great area!  I'm really enjoying just working!  

That's something that's been on my mind lately.  As thoughts have been on home with Madi arriving and the date of my release looming in the not too far distant future I've thought about work.  Why work? The thing I've learned on my mission and that I've come to know is that by work we are converted. We have to put our faith into action to have any type of converting experiences.  If we don't act or do, or in other words work, we don't have any converting experiences and leave the way open for Satan to enter in.  Idleness is the devil's playground is a true statement.  We choose what we are through what we do.  If we don't choose ourselves, than Lucifer has more than a couple of appetizing suggestions for us.  So what do we do?  We work!  We work on reading our scriptures because we know therein lies protection.  We work on our prayers because those who pray "come off conqueror."  We work on our attendance at church (being there physically, mentally and spiritually) because we know we are nothing without the sacred bond we share with Christ created through covenants.  We work on serving others because we know that by emulating The Master to the best of our ability, we will eventually become like Him.  These are only a few, but big, things we do to become converted. They are things that I've learned to do better than ever out here on my mission.  I promise you that as you do(work on) those things willingly and with an open heart that you will become who God wants you to become. You will have God's presence in your life more.  You will love who you are and what you are becoming. You will be (quoting Brother Parry my old Sunday school teacher) "bigger and badder than you ever have been before."  You just gotta work.

There's my little shpeel for the week.  I hope you felt the spirit reading it.

I love my mission.  I love who I am and who I am becoming each day.  I hope and pray you do too.

We went to Yosemite National Park!  It was AWESOME!  So many friends and great memories to be had!

I got spilled on by our member’s daughter haha. It's all good though, I still have 4 other long sleeve shirts to use.
