A positive anything is worth more than a negative nothing.

You know, I'm not exactly sure what that title means, but it sounds like it could be profound..?

I hope you all have had a great week and are enjoying the wonderful fall weather. It's been really nice the past week due to the hurricane on the coast. Us upper state people only benefit from the hurricanes, which sounds really shallow to say (was that a pun?). But we're all safe and dry and everything is ok. Hope tay han is surviving down in Florida? Prayers are definitely needed though for the residents of SC as well as the other places Matthew hit.

But the work is going really well as always. Continuing forward, which is what we like here. Our friends Allen and Chue are cleared to baptize their family members at the of the month. Allen will be ordained to be a priest either next sunday or the following. Woo hoo!!

Highlights of the week include: food. Got fed legit, the fanciest meal I've ever eaten in my entire existence. We were fed lobster, lamb, and greek salad for dinner on Wednesday. Holy cow, I felt so fancy. And then yesterday the Hmong people invited us over for a party and they just know how to eat. We had fried chicken, meatloaf, lasagna, yummy noodle stuff, complete with 6 different kinds of cake. (6 different people had birthdays recently, they all have to have their own cake!)

Other than that, I'm just still excited to be a missionary. Does it ever get old? No it doesn't! Never! That's not saying there aren't things that I won't miss when I go home but being a missionary and teaching the gospel is just the most rewarding thing you will ever do. We're just line in line with God. Our purposes are the same! Hope yall heard Elder Oaks and Anderson's talk at conference last week. Time to get on with member missionary work ;)
How many times have you heard that from a missionary.
But I really I hope yall know how much I love you and appreciate you. Oh oh!! I forgot! Jannie finally got enough money so her partner can get divorced, they can get married and she can get baptized! Woo hoo! Haha good stuff.

Anyways, I hope you each have a good week and try to find a miracle in each day. Even if it's small, but God is constantly pouring out good gifts on His children. When we take time to recognize them, He will give us even more.
Have a good week!
