Another great week here in Spring Texas.
Just as I am writing this email a young woman texted our phone who used to meet with missionaries here in Texas but has since relocated to another state. She wanted to meet with missionaries again but was unsure of how to do so. We were able to help put her in touch with missionaries in her area. Small miracles!
We have been having a lot of success recently working with the members in this ward. I've seen from my experience that when we work with the members rather than independent of them that the work moves forward much better. I know that the personal witness of these members is truly what helps those learning more about this gospel really grow. We are working with a woman by the name of Kay. She is so sweet and has about the most real intent that I have seen. She was not able to attend church with us this last week however we have good hopes for her in the coming weeks.
I am going to work this week on personal honesty. I don't consider myself to be a particularly dishonest person by any means. My focus will be on understanding when I am being honest with myself, when I am being honest with others, and honest with my relationship with my Father in Heaven. I'll let you know how it goes this week and what I learn.
Serving as a missionary has been the great pleasure of my life. I am so grateful for the opportunity to share these truths of the gospel. Something I have realized through serving is that these beliefs that we hold so dear are not just good slogans or good things to live by; they truly affect change in our lives for the better as we study them out and apply them to our various circumstances.
I love you all. I love the work. I love my Savior.
All the best,

Yeah! It's going to be really great. We have what is called MLC or Missionary Leadership Councilwhere we will decide as a mission leadership how to specifically implement the changes. It should mean more time on Preparation Days to communicate you guys! Also getting the normal p-day tasks done. I'll have more next week on the changes for sure.
