Dear Family!

To really tell you what happens in a week would probably take another week, and I don't have that kinda time out here. Lately, I have been focusing on obedience, faith, and effectiveness. I've been working to do the little things perfect, and to try to remember the things I knew at the begging of my mission. If I have faith, am diligent and obedient, the Lord will provide a way and open doors I haven't even thought about trying.

Being with Elder McKee is awesome. He is a farmer from Vanderhoof British Columbia. He loves basketball and he has told be about what happens at -50 degrees Fahrenheit. Apparently, when it is that cold you have to heat your home less because the air is so cold at that temperature that it doesn't move and creates a heat dome over your house. We have had a lot of fun together. When we were at the transfer meeting, I knew we were going to be companions for some reason. On July 1st we celebrated Canada day and he made some maple syrup and pancakes.

Our first lesson together was with a new investigator, Chase Lee. She is super cool and made it to church this week. She lives like 3 doors down from Alias. Our ward mission leader, Brother Neal, picked them up and they came together. Neither one of them really have strong male role models in their lives, so Brother Neal is like their grandpa. He is super cool! He served his mission in New Zealand and you can tell it really changed him because it’s been a few years and he still has the missionary spirit. He goes out on splits or just with the ward missionaries and knocks doors in the apartments. That's how we found almost everyone we are teaching. It’s from their faith and hard work.

Raquel is super cool!! She has been coming to church a lot and has been learning a ton. The missionaries first went over there because her daughter wanted to start getting back into coming. We have read the Book of Mormon with them, watched the testaments and have had some fun times teaching. She is thinking about getting baptized and she wants to do it in the mountains! Its gonna be sweet!! The date we invited her, it turns out we will have sacrament meeting outside, so she will be confirmed and receive the Holy Ghost. We told her that and were like, God wants this to be amazing for you, it’s meant to be!

Singing the Star Spangled Banner in sacrament meeting is the best! Today there is a ward member that does "the Cul-de-sac of Fire” that we are going to go to. Then, the fourth, Elias and Cindy invited us to watch them light fireworks. Don't worry we wont be lighting them. We will also be going to a lot of ward breakfasts. It’ll be the best!

11 And this land shall be a land of liberty unto the Gentiles, and there shall be no kings upon the land, who shall raise up unto the Gentiles.
12 And I will fortify this land against all other nations.
13 And he that fighteth against Zion shall perish, saith God.
14 For he that raiseth up a king against me shall perish, for I, the Lord, the king of heaven, will be their king, and I will be a light unto them forever, that hear my words.
