Hello! Getting emails and photos of all my friends returning home from their missions—most of whom left after me—is driving me a little crazy, but the finish line is definitely in sight so I’m working as hard as I can!
First off, happy b-day and Father’s Day to Dad! Love you, and thank you for all you do.
I had two highlights this week, and both were on Saturday.1. On Saturday morning we had a ward activity where we made rice dumplings. Rice dumplings sound like a regular food, but they are really gross. They use this special kind of rice and then they put pig fat, duck egg yolks, and overcooked mushrooms inside. It was fun making them though.2. Elder Peter F. Meurs of the Seventy, a counselor in the Asia Area Presidency, spent the eveniong with Elder Thorup and me doing visits! We spent about two hours in the car with him, and I prodded him with all sorts of questions. He taught me a lot and one piece of advice for a missionary with two weeks left was, “Give it all you got!”
I read from 2 Nephi all the way to the end of the Book of Mormon this week! The book is true.
Love you all!
Elder Sam Moody
