Monday, September 30, 2013 - Week 38

Mom and Dad,

I got the package, beef jerky and all, no problems. Thank you so much for all of the goodies! It's all delicious and I appreciate it all so much!

It's been an excellent week. The weather has been nice - not too hot during the day and the nights are nice and cool. We've been working hard and having tons of fun! I come home every night feeling exhausted and tired but so happy with what I'm doing. We've been focusing a lot on not over-thinking things and just working. I've been trying hard to simply rely on the Lord and just work. As it says in D&C 123:17 just cheerfully do all things which lie your power and see the salvation of God. Likewise in 2 Nephi 25:23, grace will make up for all that we can not do after we have done our best. That grace and salvation are undoubtedly referring to the matchless and infinite power of Christ's Atonement. As we have been focusing on just doing all we can with a smile, we've seen the Lord's hand, help, and guidance making up for everything we are unable to do.

We were blessed to have a new investigator this past week. He is about our age, and has a lot of questions about all of the things we have to offer. I feel very much that as we've begun to rely on the Lord more, He is beginning to trust us more with those He has prepared to hear His gospel.

It's going to be October tomorrow! How the time flies! I'm pretty excited for General Conference coming up. It'll be on the 12th and 13th for us here. I am looking forward to hearing the words of Monson Daikancho (President) and the Shitotachi (Apostles)

Thank you so much for all of your love, support, and prayers.

Elder Kyle Hutchings
