Our mission president is amazing! President Andrews is very straight laced and strict, but he is also full of love. We had a conference on Wednesday. President Andrews spoke of the need to repent and change. We must be obedient to have the spirit with us. President Andrews isn’t concerned about numbers. He said our mission could create a firm spiritual foundation for us.
There is a scripture that talks about when you do missionary work, that if you only covert one soul how great your joy will be (D&C 18:15-16). That one soul is you! Elder Holland talked about this in the MTC. If you only get one thing from your mission it should be a testimony of the Savior and His church. So that’s what I focus on, building myself up spiritually.

[An email later that day] Ugh! I have a fever of 101.4. It is the worst to be sick away from home. I was fine this morning but I started feeling weird again during the afternoon. It got way hot. We took the train to go to the mall. We ate at Burger King. It's the only restaurant here that you get refills!
