"Dear Family and Friends, July 29, 2013
This is going to have to be a short one. I am very well. I had a wonderful birthday. I can't believe how nice it was. We had two service projects and helped two families move. One of the member families got us an ice cream cake. I got the package from home and a lot of birthday cards. It meant so much. I felt a lot of love and support. I loved it. I am very happy out here. We are working hard...We found an amazing new investigator. He is awesome...We had a good week...I know this is God's work. He loves us so much. Christ died for us and is our Savior. I love being out here and serving people." From last week: "We are working hard and I feel very fulfilled. This is such a good work to be doing. I know that the Church is true and that God loves us so much. Our church understands faith, repentance, baptism, and the Holy Ghost more completely than any other church. I learned that this week as we trained on teaching that lesson."
