Hunter Week 9: Happy Mother's Day!


Happy Mothers Day! I hope all y'all mothers out there had a great Mother's Day! I got to call home yesterday which was ballin! It's one of two calls I get a Year! (Christmas and Mother’s Day) So, it was really good to talk to my family again! It feels like Christmas was just yesterday! Time flies by way too fast! But it was great to talk to them and to see everyone!

This week has been pretty good besides calling home! We did a lot of service this week again! We helped a elderly couple chop up some wood Saturday and throw some stuff in the dumpster. So that was a good! We worked from 10 to 2 in the afternoon! So it was a lot of work and they made us hamburgers afterwards! So it was great! We also went on splits a lot his week in the wards that we cover. So that was really good as well, and we found a new less active family to work with! It's too bad we don't report that anymore though. haha!  We have been doing really good though and have been helping a lot of people recently with service. We also helped out one of our less actives that we have been working with move Sunday after church. His name is Shawn, and he lives by himself so he needed some help. We got a few people from the ward to help, too.

So ya, it's been a good week and I made something for my mom for Mother's Day but it hasn't gotten there yet, so I can't tell you what it is yet haha!  But it is awesome! But it's been great, and we have been good and have been doing good here in West Valley. But thank y'all for everything again! I hope everyone had a great Mothers Day! I know that my mom is awesome, and she has taught me well! A scripture that I think ties in well about her is the story of the stripling warriors in The Book of Mormon. In Alma 56 where it says, "...they had ​​been taught by their ​​​mothers​, that if they did not doubt, God would deliver them. And they rehearsed unto me the words of their ​​​mothers​, saying: We ​​​do​ not doubt our mothers knew it." I can definitely bear my testimony that what I'm doing is what the Lord and my mom wants for me. A mission is a constant reminder to me about what my parents taught me and how I can live my life in the future. I love every second. I love all of y'all who have been involved in my life. I have learn so much. I wish y'all a great week and thank you for your support!
