Teaching in Russian

I was buring a shirt on my year mark. I didn't burn pants at 18 months. I was too tired. You're welcome for the pictures. I did get the picture. Have fun in Korea.

I have 24 more weeks as a full-time missionary. I'm being transferred to Kirkland, Washington - Rose Hill Ward. I'm released from bing a zoneLeader after being one for 7 months. (So happy.) They are starting a Russian branch that covers the Everett, Tacoma, and maybe Seattle missions. And I'm the only one that speaks Russian and they are making me cover that. I kind of don't want to proselyte in Russian, but I will because the Lord needs me to do so. The Church is true and everyone needs the Gospel. A recent study shows that only 7% of members are actively working on missionary work, which makes me sick. "Every member a missionary." David O. McKay -- Prophet of God. The Church is true. There are blessings for those who will step and help build the Kingdom of God.

So far we have a baptism lined up every weekend till the middle of July. Yesterday I officially have 6 months left to do this full time. Im really trying to make the most of it. We are seeing more and more miracles. Its truly crazy. The biggest growth I have seen in myself to this point is that I now seek to do the will of the Lord instead of my own. I think at that point you can get the most out of your mission because you and the Lord have become a team. I know the Lord wants there to be baptisms every week and Im going to try and do all I can to help him. If I succeed its because he blessed us and if we fail its our fault. Lets build the Kingdom of god!
W e are allowed to go to the temple with recent converts who go. I have no idea if she will be going.

Love, Elder Curran

Not Feeling Well

I thank everyone for their prayers. Thats what I need more than anything. I was watching some "Mormon Mesages" the other day and I ran across one by Jefferey R. Holland entitled "Good Things to Come". It talked abou some stuggles that the apostle had had as he was younger and raising his family. But he said to "Never give up, Dont you dare give up. There are good things to come he promised. Some blessings come soon, some come later, and some don't come until heaven but they come." Ive never been so tired in my whole life and I know that if I don't give up, (And belive me sometimes I think about it) then other people can have the happiness that I do. Please dont stop praying for me each day. Pray for people searching for the gospel to be put in my path. Pray for me to have the strength to give it 100% each day. Thank you, I need it. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the Lords Kingdom once again established on the Earth. I know it by the power of the Holy Ghost.
Up until recently I had been eating lots of sweets because the members always give it to us. Im trying to get back into shape. Also Ive been sitting in a car all day everyday for the past 9 months. We had a baptism on Sat. She didnt get confirmed because satan influenced someone else to drink and then she had to go to the hospital all night and couldnt make it to church. But next week. Cici is black too. Jesus is getting baptized on sat. and then the next sat we have Jenni.

working hard and extremely tired,
love your son elder curran
