May 26th, 2014

Hi guys,

Well here we are again, another Monday has arrived and we are writing emails. Super crazy isn't it? It literally felt like we just barely did this about 4 days ago. This week flew by super fast I don't know
where it went. We had a super good week really applying the mission standard into our area and letting the Lord work through us to find those prepared.

Hey FYI I did get the package from you with the Ensign and Liahona. However when I receive it, it was already opened and there was no flash drive in it. I think it might have got lost in the shipping
process. I checked our zone leaders car and the office and there was no flash drive. Thank you for the magazines! Don't worry to much about the flash drive, you can send it with the next package.

Sounds like everything went well with you talk in Church. Such a great topic; Elder Ballard has really given some great talks about missionary work, and the blessings that come from Missionary Work. I
hope you shared some good experiences about me and nothing to crazy ;)

Well this is going to be a short email because I don't have a lot of time. This week we had a really good week. We did a better job talking with everyone, and we found 3 new investigators. Two of them, Manuel
and Nate, are super bomb and super prepared. Manuel es de Quayaquil Ecuador (Maybe Dad first contacted him in his mission....), and his son Nate was born here in the US. Both of them have been going through some super hard times and really want a greater peace in their life. So we shared John 14:27 and promised that peace. Later when we visit them again Manuel actually asked us for a copy of the Book of Mormon because he remembered the missionaries in Ecuador talking about it. So we taught the Restoration and committed him to read. We are super excited for him and Nate and will be working really hard to help them find that peace in their life.

So ya that was pretty much the highlight of the week. We worked super hard and in turn had a very successful week. We are really starting to see the blessings that come from following the counsel of our Mission President, and it really is strengthening my testimony that God does inspire His chosen servants. I am grateful for President Tew and for his great service as Mission President.

Well I need to end here. Sorry for the short email this week. All the libraries are closed so we are on a tight schedule at the family history center. Thank you for all you do and for you love. Hope you have a good week and we will talk to ya next week.

Love,

Elder Roberts
