Week 10 - How Powerful a Testimony


I love hearing how all the fam is doing:) Good luck in DC and I hope you dont get hurt anymore grandma er.. Mom lol!

I'm so excited for Heels. Alyssa is going to be a great mom! When's the date they are expecting again? I hope she's doing well. Oregon State also doesn't know what's gonna hit them. How's Helam doing? Is he ready? I wish I could watch the game but, when you can, send me some pics of him playing OSU :) 

Congrats to Bo that he has college still paid for! What a blessing and if anyone deserves that blessing its him. He's got the great life. First he gets my beautiful sister and then he gets a stipend. Haha. 

I can tell from the pics that Hema and Norma are still being great parents :) Hendrix is just too handsome. Like his uncle. No Helam the other uncle. No Harry. Haha. 

Harry is liking school I suppose? Not holding a grudge against you like I did the year you transferred me to LPA? Remember that haha. I bet he's making lots of friends! And Dad, he's still the hard working man I still revere, especially since being out here on a mission. I love you all!

So remember when I asked you last week about the coolest Sunday school teachers, the Robinsons? Haha so right after that email I got a call from the mission office. They said I had a package. And I'm thinking that's weird my mom just sent me two packages and no girls ever send me anything. So they fowarded it to me and it was from the Robinsons!! The last few weeks I was wondering about them haha!! So I opened the package and there were a ton of B.O.M's! Oh and really good treats :) But these Book of Mormons were very special.

They had a little testimony in each of them. So all the Elders in my district decided to read every single testimony. It was awesome and so uplifting and we were impressed with the testimonies in these books. 

Suddenly a thought occurred to Freeman and me. "Lets give one to C" (our investigator who's on date for baptism). So the next lesson we gave her one, and that testimony fit her perfectly. When I shared with her how old that girl was who wrote her testimony in that Book of Mormon she looked at me awestruck. It's amazing how powerful a testimony can be no matter how old (or young!) you are. C is now just burning through that book. We texted her one night and asked her to read certain chapters. She said, "Oh I already read those." Haha she is awesome! And thanks to the package the Robinsons sent me, and that little testimony, she is making progress in the gospel :) Her heart is set on Sep 19th for baptism so please keep praying for her that she will not be swayed and that she can keep making progress. You have no idea how grateful I am for the Robinsons. 

The work is still going great! Me and Freeman are leading the District right now and we work non stop. The Lord is always helping us, in fact, recently I've seen His hand in our work. Kim and Reagan are members but Kim's husband is not. He is such a good man who loves his wife. Also other members in Kim's family aren't members. When we first came in everyone was kind of stand-offish. But lately this wonderful family has opened up and we've had the privilege of seeing Steve at church every Sunday :) Kim's family love us and we love them. We are often with them either helping or teaching, and they take good care of us. Having Kim in Columbus is like having you here Mom, you would love her. The Lord has been softening many hearts and I am so grateful!! So we are just working, working, working but there is nothing else I'd rather be doing :)

I love you and I hope things are going well!

Ofa Lahi Atu!

We work hard and play hard. Even at 5am. How cool is that my trainer's also a darn good quarterback?

I'll take that handoff. 


We nap hard too.
