And behold, I tell you these things that ye may learn wisdom; that ye may learn, when ye are in the service of your fellow beings ye are only in the service of your God. Mosiah 2:17

We have looked forward to this day and now that it's finally here, we're excited and anxious for his return. Thanks again for all your prayers, support and love!!!

Elder Basson not happy taking the Driving Test
I'm beginning to get very anxious, mixed emotions is all that I can feel at the moment. But disregarding all of that. There is still work to be done. There is no room for excuses that the point. I feel like I am on top of the world. With these feelings Elder Basson, Telleman and I will be working the hardest we can and not letting our mistakes tear us down. It was a challenging week we might add. But with the hardship we faced we saw a great miracle happen with Aiko Fukumoto! She was baptized this week and more than anything brought much joy to us all.
          I've been very stressed out having to except the fact of leaving New Zealand in the coming week. I've been fighting the emotions because I do not want this experience to end. All good things have an ending and this will be the hardest one yet. We will be working as hard as we can to overcome our weaknesses and just do the work that we have this week. This is going to be the best week of my Life! I Thank you for all that you do and all that you say. It inspires me to do my very best!
Great Day!!!
