Week 82

Good morning family!

I am doing so great! What a wonderful week it has been!  It rained a little more than usual this week - but I'm not complaining.  :)  Such a beautiful morning over here in Oak Harbor!  It has been pretty cloudy and rainy the past couple of days - and has cleared up a bit this morning, so I'm happy.  It is still a little cloudy out, but I can look out the window and see snow on the mountains, and boy, is it beautiful!  Washington is so green and awesome!

I am so glad that Heather is enjoying her new school!  That makes me so happy to hear that she is doing well.  Did she get my letter that I sent this past week?  I hope so!  Hey hey!  Atta boy, Scotty!  I bet he is jumping up and down in joy to be Diamond 1 in League of Legends - Keep on going Scotty!  Make Challenger!  Sierra has purple highlights in her hair?!  Say whaaaaaat?  That's awesome, hehe.  You know, purple is the best color ever!

Sister H mentioned yesterday at church that she sent you an email with all of the genealogy stuff that we have done together - isn't that awesome?!!  It is so cool to know a little bit about many of my ancestors.  I can't wait to do more genealogy work after my mission!

This week was amazing... I'm super grateful for my companion, Elder Luebke!  Even though I am his trainer, I feel like I am learning so much from him!  That is something I've noticed from all of the missionaries I have trained - it seems I learn more from them than they do from me!  Is that fair?  ;)   Our investigators are doing very well.  I'm impressed with how each of them have such a great desire to learn more about the gospel and do all that is needed to make those changes.  It reminds me of when I was the investigator a couple of years ago.  :)  Time sure does fly!

Today I am starting a "personal sanctification" where I am writing down a list of things that may keep me from feeling the spirit, or keep me from teaching with power and authority.  I am going to pray for strength to overcome these things I write down for the next 40 days.  The hope and goal is that I will be a more effective missionary and that the spirit can testify through me as I change my will to the will of the Lord's.  :)  I'm really excited for this!!

I hope you all have a great week - I love you all so much!


Elder Alexander J Annand
