Blog letter 6/8/2015

Well the mission is coming to an end.
I don't know how to, and I don't plan on being able to put my feelings into this letter. I am super excited to see all of you. I plan on working hard, and doing great work this last week I have in the mission.
I am grateful for each and every one of you. Thanks for the love and support you have all given me. I don't know how many people actually read my blog letters, but for the people that do. I hope these letters have been useful for something. I hope you have been able to find faith, love, and been able to receive something from the experiences I have had in my mission.
I hope to be able to share many more experiences. I hope that all of you are doing well. I am excited to see you all.
I don't know if this will be the last letter I write, but if it is just know I love you all!

Blog Letter 6/1/2015

I am worried that these letters are getting shorter and shorter. 

Hello family and friends!

I have had a wonderful week, full of great experiences. But, I don't exactly have a lot of time to tell you all about it. In a couple of weeks we will be able to talk a lot. 

I just want you all to know that I know this church is true. I can honestly say I have searched, I have studied, I have learned doctrine, and I have studied from the greatest books. I have compared the Bible to the Book of Mormon, I have compared the church Christ built, to the church restored by him in these, the last days, and there is NO OTHER CHURCH THAT COMPARES!! No other church comes close to being similar to the church Christ built. It's so obvious. If this church is not true, then NO OTHER CHURCH CAN BE TRUE! No other church has Prophets, Apostles, who proclaim divine authority by the laying on of hands. No other Church professes, and follows the commandments like our church. As other people and churches change their standards, and modify the Bible and it's teachings to accommodate the world. Our church never will because Christ is the head of it. 

I challenge anyone who is falling away, who is doubting, who wants to learn more or who is searching for the truth. Compare the Bible with the Book of Mormon, and modern day teachings. You will see, that this church is so obviously true! 

I love you all so much! You are all so amazing!

Blog Letter 5/25/2015

Hello everyone!

This week has been great, I have learned a lot and felt the Spirit a lot as well. I don't have a lot of time to write because the branch is having an activity. The 25 de mayo is a HUGE holiday in Argentina. They always eat a traditional soup called Locro. It cooked in a huge pot that looks like a witches pot and cooked over a fire. It's filled with corn, beans, meat, sausage, spices, and of course...pigs feet. There is nothing like a good well cooked Locro. It takes about 3 hourse to cook, and is one of the most expensive meals they have here. So, we are doing an activity and it should be a lot of fun. 

We are working hard, and loving life. Time is short so we have got to start getting things going here. I am loving the work, and this church is true! I love you all!
