What a week...haha. I wish I could say mine had been more eventful. I
love reading about everyone. Keeps me a little sane even though I
guess the worlds measure of sane doesn't necessarily match up with the
Lord's. I am getting lost in this lifestyle and I can't say I would
change it. I feel more alive. More excited and more motivated than
ever before. And none of it seems to be for my benefit...but it is
absolutely, without a doubt, completely for my benefit. I am growing,
but more importantly I am seeing others grow and change. I love this
work. I love this life. I love the blessings of the gospel especially
as a missionary. I love you guys. Stay strong. Keep living to your
greatest potential. Give your heart to your calling, mom. What would
Jesus do? ;) I know it will all work out. Keep the hope and faith and it will all work out for the best.

Elder Davies turns 20 on Monday, April 18. I am going to send him a birthday email tonite to be waiting for him on Monday. If you send me a birthday wish, I will forward it on to him or if you have an extra minute, it doesn't have to be long, send him a quick birthday wish yourself so that he can feel special and remembered. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and the mission office will print it out , put it in an envelope, and deliver it to him quicker than 3 weeks regular mail...usually within a day or two.
Thanks for helping to support Dallen even if only in your prayers...he does feel it!

It is amazing to see the progress in peoples lives. Mateo is a super good kid. His mom is inactive and he is fulfilling his calling and more without her hah. I love him.
I can't wait to take part in these occurrences again (family reunion). It sounds like it was an experience that was very special for everyone. Make sure they know I love them.
I have been super blessed over here. I don't know who is praying over there, but it is making my life a lot easier over here. We are seeing miracles...even with the mass I am seeing in the lives in others, I am seeing more in my own life. The gospel is fascinating. The more I learn the more I grow and understand and the easier it is to see my purpose. Study it. Love it. Live it.
Thank you for the money...I will use it wisely. I think.
About the tie. Yeah, I got it. I love it. I wear it with my suit in all my interviews. The name on the package rang a bell but unfortunately in my excitement when I received the tie, I threw away the package and the address. If you could get that to me I would love to send them a letter or something. Who are they??
Gotta go...but I love you guys.

What a great week. Great notifications from the fam, great spirit in General Conference, and 2 baptisms planned every week of April. I am being blessed more than I can express. I don't want to admit that maybe I have worked with a little more zeal because I wanted to give myself a good birthday gift but...stuff happens. ;) I have come across some great people in the last few weeks who have blessed me in more ways that I can wish to have blessed them.
I was a little down during the conference, it was very family based. I'm not with mine, but as I thought back on you, I was more excited than ever with the thoughts of all the blessings and love in my own family. I have been extremely touched in the last few weeks about the importance of the family in the church. IT IS EVERYTHING. I know now, without any doubt that if everything is being done in the home that should be done to strengthen, guide, cultivate love and security in the family, life will be a complete blessing and the suffering will be but a blink in time.
I love the gospel. I love you all. I pray for you always and send my wishes and blessings.Elder Davies.
