Hey Mom and Dad,

Hows it goin?  Good to hear that life is good.  And yes Dad you are right, not everything is as peachy and I pitch it but hey, I've only got and hour to type and if I looked for all the tough stuff I'd miss the good stuff =P  Especially this week.  We had some stuff happen that wasn't very helpful but we already know what our problem was.  Lack of Faith.  We were expecting it to fall apart and it just did what it was expected to do; had we thought differently we for sure would have had different experiences.  But lesson learned haha.

We went to the temple today!  It was awesome, I got to see other missionaries from my group in the MTC and a day in the house of the Lord is never a downer.  I took some more pics so I'll send those too today.

I've learned so much this past week.  First of all I learned that my companion knows how to cook, that is a blessing from the heavens, also a smile makes a 100 percent difference, that I'm in the area with the most places to fish on the mission, and other stuff slightly more useful too.  This last Sunday Luan bore his testimony in sacrament meeting.  That was an awesome experience.  He convinced me to do it too so I went with him.  He really is converted; it made me stop and think about my level of conversion.  Luan is the only member in his house, every other family member is against the Church, but he doesn't even seem to let it touch him.  When I go to teach a lesson some times I think that I need to say something profound and that just blows people's minds but I rarely if ever do and it used to bother me.  Now I realise that that's the last thing I should worry about.  I have a testimony, its very simple.  I heard the truth and I believed it.  The most important thing I can do is tell is how living it has changed everything.

Its all true, and I know it!
