April 4 BUSTED!

Helloooooo Friends and family! This week was so crazy, I am just dead
tired right now. We took a trip to Brownsberg again, and had a great
time, unfortunately doing that trip requres us to wake up at like 3:30
a.m. but it was worth it. There were a lot of missionaries who hadn't
gone yet which is the reason we planned it. The highlight of the trip
though, was definitely on the way home, hahah where I got pulled over
by the good ol' surinamese police force. Long story short though it
really wasn't a fair ticket. and so I called our Branch President,
(who is also a police officer) and thanks to his intervention the
surinamese police station might have just miraculously "lost" all
record of my "ticket" hahahah so that was pretty sweet. I loved
general conference, I loved Elder Bednar's talk and also both of
Uchtdorf's talks that focused on rescuing. I felt that I could relate
to them a lot with the kind of work we do here. We have a lot more
investigators right now thanks to our recent contacting craze and have
had some good follow up lessons, we have a few people who are doing
especially well, a couple, named A& J, are especially
interested in what we teach and literally gave us an applause after
our last lesson, hahah so they're pretty cool. Despite my tiredness I
am still glad to be a missionary, and am proud of the work me and
Elder Geigenmiller have accomplished thus far, we are really trying
our best and I see a lot of blessings because of it. Anywho, I wish
you all the finest of weeks and would like to say happy Birthday to my
Dad!!!! Best man in the world!!!
