Hello again! Man has this week been interesting. On Tuesday, we helped Rachel and Matthew move to Ammanford, which is about a 40 minute drive away. we helped load up the van with stuff, take it there, unload, come back, load up again, go there and unload again, then come back and help load up one more time. It took a while, but they were so incredibly grateful for our service. Matthew is a great guy, and he really wants to change his life around. I am so thankful for opportunities to help out people like him.

We have continued to teach other people who are progressing well. Aaron, who is 18 and plays football with us every friday, wants to get baptized, and he has told us how we have helped him gain such a stronger faith in God, which has helped him out a lot.
 
Elder Smith and I have been sick for the past few days, so near the end of the week we weren’t able to be as effective as we would have liked. On Friday we traveled to the mission home in Birmingham for a meeting for all of the trainers and new missionaries to follow up on what we have been learning. It was a nice four and a half hour train ride to get there, with a bout a two hour meeting, and four and a half hours straight back. we had to wake up at 4 just to get there at 10:30. very fun stuff. The meeting was good though, and I learned a lot.
Elder Smith and i have continued to have a great time together, and i have been so happy as of late. The mission is the single greatest decision that i have ever made, and i will always be forever grateful that i decided to serve. Have a great week!
 
Love, Elder DeBeikes
