Sorry This is Short


Man I can’t wait to go to the temple (Fort Collins Temple) when I get back it looks so beautiful! I didn’t feel it (7.1 magnitude earthquake on September 1), I think I was too tired to wake up (hahah), but we heard about it!

So as the STL (Sister Training Leader), I go up to Hamilton for MLC which is a Missionary Leader Council.  I put together exchanges which means I will go with a sister in my zone and work with her, help her in her area and stuff.  I will also give a training with the Zone Leaders at zone meeting, and just be there for the sisters when they need someone to talk to.  I also just make sure people are obedient (haha), and set an example for other missionaries!  I’m excited, because I am going to be able to work with heaps of missionaries and learn so much!  I think that’s what I am most excited for.

Sorry this is short.  Don’t have a lot of time today!   I want you guys to know I love you guys and I just want you guys to know I love this Gospel.  I Love my Savior and Heavenly Father!

Love you guys!

Letter from President Cummings

Dear Parents and Family,

You may have heard news reports of a 7.1 magnitude earthquake that struck 100 kilometres off the northeast coast of New Zealand with possible tsunami like activity and aftershocks.

I want to assure you that all of the missionaries in the New Zealand Hamilton Mission in the affected areas have been spoken to and are safe and well and in no immediate threat of danger.

We will continue to monitor the situation with the appropriate Civil Defense authorities and take any further action that may be necessary.

We have a great love for all of our missionaries and are thankful for their dedicated service.  Thank you for your love and support.

Yours sincerely,

President Jeffrey D. Cummings

New Zealand Hamilton Mission President
