June 27, 2016 update

[Pictures first!]
Many elders getting ready to eat pizza - YUM!

"The new missionaries and their trainers! We lost about 25-30 missionaries, but gained 9!"
Elder Reed only had a quick update with a few pictures. Elder Reed is excited about his new companion, and is ready to help him learn as well as learn from him. 

Elder Reed has felt stressed this week as he's now district leader again and a trainer too, but he is doing the best he can. He said that he feels there is never enough time in the day, but he does try to write in his journal [at least a line or two] each day. 

Elder Reed shared that he really enjoys being in his mission, and loves the people. He shared that he sometimes gets down when people don't come to church, but he does see blessings happening. He shared about a lady who lives very far away from the church building [on the boundaries of his area], but who wants to come to church and learn more about the gospel, which is awesome! 

Elder Reed is grateful for his missionary companions, and his mission overall. He said to keep doing what the Lord would have you do, and you'll be blessed!

Until next week - remember to count your blessings - you may be surprised at how many there are -
