My mission can be summed up in 3 words.
Diligent inspired work.
So while walking to an appointment I ran we took wrong turn and found this lady who needed some help. While talking to her we found out that she investigated the church in Massachusetts and we had a great time talking to her and she invited us back!
This is why I didn't write much today! Zone Bowling.
“I have often said one of the greatest secrets of missionary work is work! If a missionary works, he will get the Spirit; if he gets the Spirit, he will teach by the Spirit; and if he teaches by the Spirit, he will touch the hearts of the people and he will be happy. There will be no homesickness, no worrying about families, for all time and talents and interests are centered on the work of the ministry. Work, work, work--there is no satisfactory substitute, especially in missionary work.” –President Ezra Taft Benson
Hey Sunshine, Thought I'd wish you a happy 20th birthday. Your packages are at the mission home if you haven't got them yet. Have a wonderful day. You are no longer a teenager, you're almost a full grown man! Love,
Thanks mom! Had a pretty great birthday, way better than My 18th. Remember that, when I went skeet shooting all by myself? Bad birthday. But this one was pretty good. Look what Tyler sent me, you can can tell we're all family
"Happy Birthday Bro!!!! You are officially no longer a teenager. That's kind of a big deal. Your almost a full grown man. That means no more cutting the crust off of your sandwich" -Tyler Herdt
Got all my packages, Thanks! Thanks for the shirts. My first shirts are not looking the best. I can not believe Jenna is married. That's too weird. (Sam Moody enters the MTC the same day Elder Herdt gets home) Maybe I can face time Sam right before he goes in. Speaking about FaceTime. The mission is getting new iPads re-issued to missionaries I'll send you the email on it. I am not required to buy it though because I came out before August 23rd. In the Future I may be able to purchase the iPad the mission is lending. The new one is updated and has 32 gigs so it would be cool because if I owned it then I could make a quick call at the air port.Elder Herdt
