Letter from Elder Burns 03/14/2010


This last week has been awesome we were able to participate in a mission tour and we had ELDER HAMULA come from the quorum of the seventy.  It was so awesome! He is one of the most inspired men I have ever met.  He should be speaking at general conference this coming one in April. I am continuing to love my mission. It's amazing that I have been out for 7 months! It has just flown by. Transfers were this week.  We had some big changes to the district, but Elder Bryner and I are still together, WHICH IS AWESOME! We get along so well together and its like being with a best friend.  We still havent had any baptisms in richmond, but were working on it.  It seems like the ward is just not too great at fellowshipping people, but we are working alot with the members.

I am working really hard to become a better teacher so that I can be prepared for the new missionaries coming in.

Elder Kingi, my trainer, is now an assistant to President Scruggs so that's really cool.  He and I can go on exchanges now. We have been able to get alot more people to church lately as we have focused our teaching on personal experiences it has helped tons.

I am still loving everything and striving always to do my best.  Thank you so much for the words of encouragement.  It helps so much to know that I have a loving mom and dad to always be there for me.

We have a zone activity today.  We are going to play Aqua golf and it should be awesome.

Thank you for all that you do.

Love your son ,

Elder Burns
