For two years I will be preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ and serving the people in the area of the Salt Lake City East Mission! My mother has volunteered to post my letters and pictures on this blog so you can follow me. I have been preparing for my mission for 18 years by exercising faith and building a testimony of my Savior Jesus Christ and His amazing Gospel. Please email or write me if you have any questions or just want to talk!

"I Finished the Book Of Mormom and Preach My Gospel Again"
Evanston/Summit Zone conference
It has been
a great week! I feel like
we are finally getting on our feet!! Park city is so different from Evanston
and we hear that it is hard to be diligent when half your day is spent at the Family Tree. We are trying to motivate inspire and minister.
We had a zone conference on Tuesday here in Evanston and the
new zone is working great! Members and missionaries are going to be coming
together a lot more in our mission and other surrounding missions. I will
explain more in following emails. It has been neat focusing on only 3 wards. We
had the Star Valley temple dedication this Sunday and it was so cool. Sister
Bednar is from Star Valley and Sister Ballard is from Cokeville. Elder Bednar
asked sister Ballard to get up and bear her testimony and she got super
Elders Moe & Douglass
the Book of Mormon and Preach My Gospel again this morning. Again, I know that
they are both inspired by God. I am so grateful for the opportunity I have to
preach this gospel. I feel like Ammon in saying that I can not say the smallest
of how I feel. I feel like Alma and Amuleck and so many others as they boldly
and powerfully call others to repentance.
I am so
sorry for how short the letter is. I love you!

has been amazing. Brother Donaldson, the Mission President in the San Antonio
mission in district 2, came and did training in our mission. He knows
President and Sister Hillier. It has changed my mission and my life. I feel
like while on my mission, I have been just waiting for that day. He talked to
us about The Doctrine of Christ, the Book of Mormon, Preach My Gospel, teaching
skills and so much else. It was so amazing. My words are falling super short. I
feel like a pillar of light has descended into my mission and I have been
revealed a book that has been buried in my bag. It has the answers. It has the
things I have been searching for. I feel like in this last week I have been
able to tell the Lord at the end of the day that I have given it my all; that I
worked my hardest. I know the Book of Mormon is SO true - 2 Nephi 33
Preston, I love
you so much, and Becca, you still can’t do a pull up. Mom and Dad, I love you and hope you see a
different son when I get home. I am so blessed.
The Book of
Mormon Is true. I know it and I know that God knows it.
We did some sheetrock demo as a district! I had a lot of sheetrock boogers.
