Not gonna have time for a full email this week like usual --

How are you all?? 
This week was good and I had a lot of answers to prayers; working more on recognizing the Lord’s hand in my life. Studying, working, serving. I’m loving the scriptures and I think I’m the happiest I’ve ever been. Seriously. I love the mission and just getting out and doing the work!

We moved this week! 
The move was good, though on the fly (literally got a call 30 minutes before the movers showed up that we’d be moving that day) and the new house is really nice. lots of space. And mosquitos. Hot water too.

We had interviews with President!
Interview went well! He’s pleased with training; Elder A is doing really well. Talked about my goals; he was happy with the ones I’ve set. I told him I’d prayed and sought guidance about them. He prayed for me to feel and continue to develop more charity and patience, so I’ve taken a hint and went to the books this whole week to learn more. Also, kinda nervous about the transfer coming up, but we’ll see.

Had a sweet Missionary devotional from Provo over the wires!
Quotes from the broadcast:

“You are called to testify of Jesus Christ and to invite people to do what He has required to come unto Him and walk the path He has defined by His doctrine ...” —Elder Dallin H. Oaks of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles

“Speak of the Savior. Testify of Him. Speak of His doctrine, of faith in Him and His Atonement, repentance, baptism, the gift of the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end.” —Elder Neil L. Andersen of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles

Hope all is well there!

Love you!

Elder Hughes
