M.T.C. Looking good!!

A couple from our ward works the M.T.C. and ran into Elder Ty Atkinson!! He looks great!! and his companion Elder Contreras from Riverside California, he is going to the Brisbane Australia mission.  thank you so much for the picture!!

First letter home!!

     I'm doing very well here! I have the best companion in the world! Oh my Roommates said thanks for all the food! We are super busy and haven't eaten any of it... 

      My companion is Elder Contreras he is from Riverside California. We room with Elder Hobby who is from London England and Elder Dahle who is from Fruit land Idaho. Our whole room in going to Australia along with one other in my district.The other are going to England on there missions. I wont go in to detail because I don't wanna... Elder Dahle and Elder Hobby are going to Adelaide with me. My companion is going to Brisbane. 

      We are working hard and killed our first Investigator on our second day here. If he wasn't a teacher acting as an investigator his eternal salvation would have been destroyed...  We are getting better and we had a fantastic lesson today with an investigator. We had to teach her today on P-day because my companion and I are going to hospital tomorrow to get an ultrasound on his heart. He had a minor heart murmur. We believe everything is okay but we are getting it done to make sure. Oh Elder Hobby fell out of bed last night! British substitute swear words are fantastic!

"What is missionary work?

The Lord has declared that missionary work is the responsibility of all who follow Him (see Matthew 28:19–20D&C 88:81). Members of the Lord's Church can, by the goodness of their lives and the strength of their testimonies, share the gospel message and help prepare family members, friends, and other acquaintances who are not Latter-day Saints to be taught by the full-time missionaries.
When we experience the blessings of gospel living, we naturally want to share those blessings with others. The Lord spoke of the joy that comes into our lives when we share His gospel:
