Hello all!

I don't have a lot to say about this week because so much happened and I can't remember it all. It has been quite a hectic week. It started last P-Day when we spent most of it in the ER because my companion has been really sick -- so sick that he is going home tomorrow. Through out the week there have been a lot of calls with doctors, the mission president, and his wife. He is a great missionary, and I'm sad to see him leave, but hopefully he'll be back soon! For FHE that night we had steak which was super good.

Today: Because Elder Casey is leaving, he will miss the temple trip. Luckily, the temple was open for Labor Day, so we got to go do a session! It was super fun!

Last Tuesday we finished painting a fence that we have been working on for a while and had had some good lessons!

Wednesday we had district meeting. I gave a training on living the higher law. We also had some good lessons through the day. At night we had missionary night. It was just us and the branch president that night. We went to visit a less-active and his investigating girlfriend. While on our way there an back, we took a "shortcut" in his Jeep. it was super fun!

Thursday was a crazy day. We had another missionary with us because of exchanges. We did some service in the morning then bounced around from studies, to a lesson that fell through, to getting our area book checked.

Friday: There was a bunch of random stuff that we had to do because my companion was sick, so we didn't get to do too much. We did have a lesson though!

Saturday: Was a pretty empty day. We started the morning by cleaning the church. It took over two hours because there were only six people there including us.

Sunday: Church meetings + all our our lessons fell through.

Spiritual thought: Study of the scriptures is essential to resisting the temptation of Satan. We were charged in the last general conference to read from the Book of Mormon everyday. The scriptures are God's way of communication with us and they can tell us all things that we should do (2 Nephi 32:3-4), but not just spiritual things. I am so grateful for the scriptures and the teachings we can learn therein.

Thank you all for you support and prayers! I love an miss you all!

Elder Morgan
