Letting the Elder talk...

     So this week you get to hear from the Elder. His p-day was late and I am late. So next week will be better! Have a great week!!

 Dear Family,

Well howdy hey. I have almost no time today so this one will be kind of short.

This past week has been great. Lot's of things are moving along! It was pretty hectic though. Some of our translators for A and T were out of town and so for a couple days we were frantically trying to find someone to go to lessons with us. It all worked out, and they met with the bishop on Sunday and they now have their marriage license. Woo! So they are planning on getting married right after church on Sunday by the bishop. THEN they will be baptized the following Saturday! We are so excited for them. They are amazing. Really. OH and they called us on Saturday and A said that she needed to talk with us and that she needed us over as soon as possible. So a little scared of what was going to happen we got a translator and went over. Well, the news was that she is going to have a baby!! So we had a little joyful party there. Ha ha. She was concerned that it would interfere with her baptism, but since they are getting married then all is well! It was pretty exciting.

The mission got their first 18 year old today. How awesome is that?! Things are moving so fast. Almost weekly the mission is setting new records for finding or people at church or baptisms, ect. It is so awesome to be a part of. The Lord is Hastening his work. It is so incredible to see. It's incredible to feel as well. I love being out here as a missionary. Because of all the missionaries coming out our mission has changes transfers to 5 weekers starting with this one, so i will be home a week early. It's kind of a bummer but that's ok. This transfer is going to FLY by. I will not let up or slow up until i have stayed up, stored up, and stowed up for the cause of Christ. I know that this work is true and i know that it is the work of God. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and that is changes lives. It teaches so much of how we can better our lives and use Christ's Atonement. I am so grateful that i have it. I am grateful for families and the knowledge that they are forever, i know that is true. Heavenly Father loves each of us and is anxious to bless us. His work is our happiness.

Thank you for all that you do for me, I love you all so much! Have a great week and share the gospel!

-Elder Chrys Robinson
