"Just Go Serve a Mission! You will love it!" -March 4, 2013

Hi family,

Thank you for your letters and your prayers. I don't have a lot of time again...but I just wanted to share with you a miracle that happened this last week. We have found an investigator who is super excited in sharing the gospel and actually set up a meeting with us and 5 professors from a University to take part in their discussion group. We were able to discuss the gospel and the restoration opening with these people who will then influence so many more. It was incredible! We were able to bear solemn testimony of the truths that make us happy and were reinforced that they really do make us happy.

President Campero (our mission president here in Donets'k) is actually in America right now because of health issues, but we're moving forward while he's gone. Pray for him though.

The Lord is doing an incredible work here in gathering Israel. We will be opening an African branch ("branch" is a term used for a group of members, because there aren't enough members to form a 'ward' yet).  We are baptizing so many from Africa that live in Ukraine. Also, we need 120 more Melchizedek priesthood holders to make a stake (many wards make up a stake). Pray for Zion here!

I love you! Keep being the amazing people you are at work and home. And I would eat dad's cooking any day ;)

PS This really is the best time of my life and is my life.  Everyone should serve.
