Letter from Elder Burns October 25, 2009

Dear Family,

I am doing wonderful I am continuing to learn and to grow from my mission experience. I am having loads of fun I enjoy Australia so much. We get about 6 new investigators a week, some of them stick with it, some don't, but we do our best.

I am so excited that the girls are going to have the opportunity to take the teens 2 class. It will be a great experience and I am so happy for them. I have not had a opportunity to see a Koala bear, but they are supposed to be really cute.

Right now we have three really good progressing investigators Michael Gould, Cheng Yu, and Rueben Sang. Michael is the only one that has a baptismal date, but the other 2 are still strong.

The Spirit guides me mostly when I bear testimony, but yes, the Spirit guides me in all I do.

I love you with all my heart.

To Jared,

IDK what I want for christmas!!! Jared, you are so awesome. I haven't eaten a Koala you silly. I guess if you where really good at it (Throwing A Boomerang) you would be able to kill it (A Kangaroo). That would be funny.

To Mom,

How are you? I love hearing from you every week and I love the opportunity that I have to serve a mission. I have been working very very hard to become better at teaching and it is coming along well. I am still losing weight. I have lost a total of about 15 lbs! It's awesome! I'm gonna come home skinnier than ever - it will be awesome. I have been out a month and a half and I love it here.

Well my time is gonna cut short.

I love you tons
