Family and friends,
Though this week felt a little long, it was filled with miracles (one in the form of a baptism!). At the beginning of the week, I wasn't sure if I'd be able to work as hard as I knew I needed to. I remembered the letter that President Hinckley's dad sent him during his mission saying "forget yourself and get to work." I decided to try that. Sister Heikki and I worked hard, and in turn we forgot about our worries. I especially found that the promises I've been given of peace and comfort through prayer are real. I love my mission. I love this area. I wouldn't change anything about about it thus far, as each direct or indirect experiece has helped me to grow. I love you all a whole bunch, and can feel your love and prayers!
