Well family this week was really uneventful. The truth is it is even hard for me to start this letter. But this week started out pretty good with the zone meeting that we had. My comp and I had been preparing this meeting for about a month. First of all, with the recent change of mission president we no longer have a slogan for the mission so my comp and I made one, but it is just for the zone. After much pondering and meditation we felt we wanted to relate it with Moroni and the Title of Liberty. We then read the scriptures that are in Alma 46:19-22.
"Let them come forth in the strength of the Lord, and enter into a covenant that they will maintain their rights, and their religion,that the Lord God may bless them...the people came running together with their armor girded about their loins, rending their garments in token, or as a covenant, that they would not forsake the Lord their God...We covenant with our God, that we shall be destroyed, even as our brethren in the land northward, if we shall fall into transgression; yea, he may cast us at the feet of our enemies, even as we have cast our garments at thy feet to be trodden under foot."

We encouraged the missionaries to make that same covenant with the Lord. We then shared 2 very powerful messages about consecration. I cried in my own message and I felt the Spirit so strong. We are trying to help the new missionaries in the zone learn the ins and outs of missionary work early so they can start to have success. Well as of right now, in 2 months I will be on a plane heading back to the factory of missionaries... thats what they say down here about Utah.
Love you guys so much.
