I cannot believe how fast this transfer has been. Next Wednesday is ALREADY TRANSFERS! And President Preston said that I will probably be moving lol! Well we shall see. If you would still like to drop me a line and say hey you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Don't be shy now!
So the recording went well! There was ten of us in the mission who were asked to sing for the EMM song! I was honored to be asked to help out with that project! We got to Liverpool at 5pm and left about 8:30 pm! It was so much fun! The mission has truly changed me and truly has blessed not only my life but my family's lives! Sometimes I wake up in the mornings every day and wonder if I can really do this. Then my scriptures every morning and have that reassurance that, as Paul said to the Phillipians and what my mom always says to me, "I can do ALL THINGS through Christ which strengthenth me." (Phillipians 4:13). I know you all have things that are required of you for your jobs or family obligations which you feel that you cannot do. Just remember with the help of your Savior Jesus Christ you can do it! Never forget it!
I am grateful for all of you and the love and prayers you freely give to not just me but to all the missionaries around the world. We couldn't go on without them! I love my Savior Jesus Christ and I want all of you to know that His love is eternal for He lives eternally! No one is too far from His love! This I leave with you in His name, even Jesus Christ, our Savior and Reedemer, Amen!

Before I begin I just wanted to let The Mabry's, Britney Thompson, and Rebekah Layton know that I got your letters and will be replying back soon. Thank you so much for the letters, I love hearing from you all!
Well this coming week is going to be so CRAZY! On Friday I have training with the whole Zone and also interviews with President Preston (my mission president). I always love being with the other missionaries in this Zone and also having the chance to meet with my mission president one on one every three months. Then after that I am going up to Liverpool to record the England Manchester Mission Song with a few other missionaries in the mission! I am SO EXCITED for that! I am so glad to do the things I love to do to bless the lives of those around me! I love being a missionary for the Lord Jesus Chrsit!
I am so grateful for the prayers you have offered for me and other missionaries the world over! We need them constantly and feel them as well! I hope you all have a great week! Till next time!

I hope all of you are doing well and that things are going well for you! For me it is always busy! On the 3rd of April of 2012 (a year ago) I was assigned to my field of labor by the Prophet President Thomas S. Monson. What a reassurance for me and for anyone else who has received a call to serve from the Lord was truly inspired of God to where I was to go. I am grateful for the opportunity that I have to be here with the British people and my chance to serve the Lord as a minister of the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ.
So I hope that all of you have enjoyed listening to General Conference! I know I did! As a missionary, you get so much out of Conference and receive guidance from a loving Heavenly Father. One of the biggest themes of Conference for me were that 1) Satan will ALWAYS try to make us feel inadequate and 2) We must ALWAYS know our divine potential. The talk that hit home for me was President Utchdorf's talk in Priesthood. He talked about the 4 titles that Priesthood holders have. They are sons of God, disciples, healers of souls and heirs of the Kingdom of God. When he was talking something big stood out to me. He stated (and I paraphrase): "For those of you who feel unloved or inadequate I am sorry." He said it with great emotion. I truly felt that he was talking to me because I have felt these things in my life including the mission field. Another statement rang out to me as he went on: "Brethren, the adversary will always try to make us feel inadequate. Brethren, don't listen to him." I realized that I let Satan get the best of me at times. When I heard that talk I realized that the adversary can not budge my divine potential as a son of God and a brother of Jesus Christ. "Get thee hence Satan!" I am a son of God.
I testify that we are all sons and daughters of God and that we can become like He is someday: Perfect. I know that I am a son of God and that Jesus Christ is my Savior, Reedemer and friend! I know that we have living Prophets and Apostles who lead and guide The Church of Jesus Christ on Earth. I know that Satan is the world's greatest hater and always will be. Do not believe his lies. Always walk in the light which is Christ whom said: " I am the light and the life of the world". I share my testimony with you in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen!

So many miracles are happening here in Crewe! First the investigator I was teaching on the Isle of Man named Rong got baptized last Saturday!!!! Ah my heart is full! He will do so great! Last Saturday we also had the privilege to find for 5 hours on Saturday and we found so many great people! We had about 4 lessons on the spot! Great things are happening! I want you to know that I know that my Savior lives and that His love is unconditional and His grace is for those you believe on Him and act upon their faith. As we prepare this week to listen to His prophet's voice and also His apostles and other leaders, we will be inspired from on high to act. I love General Conference! As a missionary you get so much from it!
Well continue to be amazing and I will speak to you all soon!
