Missionaries Do The Greatest Work And ALL Mankind Benefits

Hello everyone!

 I am so humbled and grateful to be a missionary! This is the greatest work on earth and mom reading about all the exciting things going on at home really makes me happy. Heavenly Father truly does love all of us and he truly does prepare people to receive this wonderful messages that we have. I am very grateful that Elder Larsen and I get to devout all out time to serving our Heavenly Father, it's such a blessing! My joy is full when I see my brothers and sisters coming closer to our Heavenly Father. It amazes me continually of the power of the Atonement of Jesus Christ. We are so blessed to have the fullness of the Gospel! We understand who our Heavenly Father is! We know that through the Atonement of Christ, all men WILL live again and we can be reconciled back to our Heavenly Father. The cool thing is this is what we tell people all day everyday!

 Sounds like everyone back home is having a blast, I'm very glad to hear that Ma is doing well. Sounds like missionary work is exploding over there, and missionary work continues to explode in Prince George too! I have a testimony that as we are diligent, obedient and humble then Heavenly Father will bless us in all things.

 On Tuesday we had a chance to have a meeting with President Tilleman. I am so grateful that he is our mission President, he truly is a man of God. We felt the spirit really powerfully as we set goals for the mission. Our aim is to have 54 of our brothers and sister enter into the waters of baptism in June! I know that we can do it as we exercise faith and work as hard as we can! I remember feeling the spirit really powerfully bear witness to me that yes we can do this, then after my testimony of the Gospel was strengthened as President Tilleman bore his testimony. I am grateful that Heavenly Father blesses us with inspired leaders to help us fulfill our full potential! I am just full of faith and I will do anything that my Heavenly Father asks of me!

 We're scheduled to have Raquel Medina's baptism this upcoming weekend! Elder Larsen and I are excited for that. Brother Meisi is still awesome as ever! He's been so excited about the Gospel, he shares it with everyone! We actually found out that he gave out about 100 pamphlets to people about the restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. That's intense!

 We had a chance to meet with Cory this week. We've been meeting with him I would say for 5 weeks now. He has such a righteous heart, he wants to be baptized and right now we're working with him to overcome issues he has with the word of wisdom. As we've been meeting with him we've been able to see a change in his countenance, he's a happier brighter guy. What's really helping him is reading from the Book of Mormon and continuing to pray fro strength to resist temptation. It's awesome, people who truly humble themselves admit that they need to chance and seek help from people who care about them and their Heavenly Father really change! I know it's possible because of the Atonement, it allows all men to change and become better.

A classic Elder Lahache picture
I forget who said it but I remember one of the general authorities said this about the Atonement; The Atonement is there to help bad me to become good, and good men to become better. It's true because I rely so much on the Atonement everyday and do my best to refine myself as a missionary. As I ask Heavenly Father for ways as to how I can improve he shows me. I am grateful for my Heavenly Father and the love he has for all of us.

 Also I had a chance to send a few pictures, hope you like them! Have a good week!

On The Road Again

Hello everyone!

 What a wonderful week it has been for Elder Larsen and myself. We were blessed both spiritually and temporally. This past weekend we were able to make a trip out to Valemount, it has been a while since we've been able to visit Valemount and the wonderful families there. As we were driving there and back we saw a total of 6 bears, 3 Moose and several deer, it was really cool. I never realized how big moose are, they're actually huge! We also had a chance to bring Josh with us. It was such a blessing to have him and for him to bear his testimony, he has come such a long way and ever since he was baptized last week he's been doing everything he could to have the spirit with him always.

 After his baptism last Sunday Elder Larsen and I were in an appointment and when we got out we noticed that we received a text from Josh and this is what it said. "Elders, I just want to thank you for being here for me in my greatest time of need, for being my stone of unwavering faith and dedication to the Lord. You two shall forever remain in my thoughts and in my prayers long after you have finished your missions and returned home to start families of you own. I feel complete now like there was a hole in my soul that could only be filled by bringing myself closer to the Lord. A hole that is now filled with the Spirit." As a read that text a scripture in Doctrine and Covenants came to my mind, it was the one that says that there are those who are kept from the truth only because they know not where to find. Josh was looking for the truth for a long time and he said that when he came to church that he felt the Spirit really powerfully. Heavenly Father has been preparing Josh, because he came to us already knowing how to recognize the Spirit in his life. I know that the Lord led him to us, I know that he answers the prayers of the righteous as we do all that we can to fulfill our prayers to him.

 We had a chance to meet the Medina family again, they're still as warm and as welcoming as they have always been. I am grateful that Heavenly Father has led us to them. We finished teaching Raquel the remainder of the lessons, she had her baptismal interview so now she is prepped and ready to be baptized! Omar had a provincial track tournament down in Burnaby this week, so he and Brother Medina left, which is why we brought Josh with us. It was a great experience, Valemount is still an awesome place! Is there any other registration that needs to get done for school?

 Today we are going to be heading down to Richmond around 4:30 and then we have meetings in Richmond all day tomorrow. Then on Thursday to Friday we are going to be going on exchange in Vanderhoof. Vanderhoof is a small town but it has two wards in it, we'd be walking around the
 streets and half the people there are members. It's a funny feeling.

 The Gospel of Jesus Christ is wonderful! How blessed we are to have modern Apostles and Prophets who stand as special witnesses of Jesus Christ. I am grateful for the knowledge of the plan of salvation which we have, we know that our families can be together forever. We know that as we are obedient to the first principles and ordinances of the Gospel that we will return to live with our Heavenly Father. I am grateful for the Atonement of Jesus Christ, which makes it possible for us to make our weaknesses strengths. I know that with the grace of Jesus Christ we beyond our own natural capacity! We have all this wonderful knowledge available to us!

 Missionary work is the best work! I am grateful for the opportunity that I've been blessed with to serve. I know that when we put Heavenly Father first in our lives he will take care of us.

 Have a great week everyone!

We Are Blessed To Have The Holy Ghost In Our Lives

Hello everyone!

 What a wonderful week it has been! The conference yesterday was great, I was able to feel the spirit so strong and I know that the messages we've received were inspired. As we apply the counsel we've received we will be given that strength that we need to keep ourselves as well as our families strong. I know that Christ is the foundation which we must build our lives on. I have a testimony that as we trust in our Heavenly Father he will take care of us. I am so grateful for the chance I will have to attend Concordia University this fall, what a wonderful blessing.

 We were so incredible blessed to witness the baptism of Josh Meise as well yesterday. I've been trying to upload pictures from his baptism for the past 45 minutes but every time I do it freezes up the computer. So my letter won't be so long today because I still have to e-mail President as well. The spirit was so powerful at his baptism and there were about 60+ members who attended, pretty much the most well attended baptism that I'm aware of. Everyone was so happy there and we could all feel the love that Heavenly Father had for Josh! 
Josh Meise and the Prince George Missionaries
 The wonderful thing about the Gospel and the Church is that, this message is true. God does call men to be prophets in these days and the authority to act in the name of Christ has been restored. All who humble themselves and come unto Christ through baptism are promised the constant companionship of the Holy Ghost. What an incredible blessing that is, to have to Holy Ghost with us to teach us continually truth. I can testify that the Holy Ghost has confirmed to me that this message is true, it has and continue to bless my life as well as those who we teach.

 I am grateful to be a messenger of truth. It's the best, I know that Heavenly Father uses me as an instrument in his hand to bless his children.

 I'll try sending a picture again if it doesn't work I'm sorry, I hope that things  are going well. Also please thank Rachel Lamble for her letter.

 Have a great week!

I Love My Missionary Experience

Hello everyone!

 Well last week seemed to just fly by as well. The mission office called me too this past week and let me know that August 15th is when I would be flying back. It was one of the weirdest phone calls on my mission. They basically just asked about information at home and how they would be able to reach you.

 Elder Larsen and I feel so incredibly blessed! We are seeing miracles happen in our area as well as throughout the mission of which we are both grateful for! This upcoming Sunday is going to be the day the Josh gets baptized! We're so excited for him, Elder Larsen and I were talking with Elder and Sister Sterner (The senior couple in Prince George) yesterday, and we just marveled at the changes that he has and continues to make in his life because of his love of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. What a wonderful blessing the Gospel is. I have a testimony that the Gospel of Jesus Christ changes people, as the spirit confirms to them the truth of the Gospel added light comes into that persons life that was not there before. It truly is a miracle to be involved in this experience.

 The Medina family also had to opportunity to come up to Prince George because Omar (14 year old son) was participating in various track and field events. He won every single event that he was participating. I remember the first time that we went and visited the Medina family, Sister Median invited Omar to say an opening prayer to our meeting and Omar declined the invitation because he wasn't sure about how to pray. Since then we've been blessed with opportunities to teach the families and strengthen their faith. Elder Larsen and I have noticed the change that has been happening in their family. Before Omar's last event he was warming up and getting ready for the race, then suddenly he stood firm on the ground with his legs spread shoulder length apart. He crossed his arms and bow his head. When Elder Larsen and I saw this sudden change we both looked at each other and smiled because we both knew what he was doing, praying. After his race we had a moment to ask him what he did before the race. We asked him if he prayed and he smiled and confidently said yes! It's wonderful to see testimonies grow, and nothing has brought me more happiness in my entire life than helping people understand their relationship with our Heavenly Father and his Son, Jesus Christ.

 Transfers are this week, calls were Sunday and Elder Larsen and I are staying together in Prince George for another transfer. I'm so excited for that, I know that as we continue to work hard and put our trust in Heavenly Father that we'll continue to be instruments in his hands, and see miracles in our area!

 I hope everyone has a good week! and had a good time camping too!

Another Amazing week

Hey everyone!

Wow, what a week it was here. We had a spiritually uplifting zone conference, the messages which we received were inspired through the Holy Ghost. I know that as we apply what we've learned that our area will continue to move forward. I'm just so excited to be serving in Prince George at this time, the field is truly white here and we're doing our best to harvest as much as we can. We are constantly being blessed and finding amazing people who are prepared and ready to make sacred covenants with our Heavenly Father! It's exciting it's wonderful and I LOVE IT!

So for mother's day, I can't believe it's practically here it seems like it was just yesterday that we talked! We have church here from 1-4 here and I was planning on calling after church. So probably around 7:30, back home. We'll have about an hour so that means we should wrap up around 8:30! If that doesn't work you can call the mission office and they will forward the message to me. I'll be calling Doda's house.

This week literally zipped by, I loved having zone conference and it was great having President Tilleman come up North, he hasn't been here for a while apparently. All the missionaries were really excited to see him! It's really a miracle that he's still here, he was telling us at zone conference that when he suffered his injury that it was really serious. Many of the doctors look at what happened and they shake their heads because he shouldn't be walking right now! Let me tell you he does much more than just walk to, it added to my testimony in the power that faith has to heal and also in Priesthood blessings. If anything this experience has made the mission that much better. President Tilleman always had faith that we would continue to work hard even when he wasn't there, and that's exactly what we did. We've matured as a mission and we're continuing to push forward. We're becoming more effective teachers who understand what our role is as missionaries, which is to point people toward our Heavenly Father through our Savior Jesus Christ. It really is a privilege to be able to serve and I am grateful for my testimony which allows me to bring in the spirit into lessons to touch the hearts of those we teach.

Earlier this week we received a call from one of our investigators, Brother Smith (we call our investigators brother or sister it's LEGIT!) he told us about one of his friends that he wanted us to start teaching. He invited us over and we went. We bore powerful testimony of the Power of the Atonement of Jesus Christ and how through Jesus Christ we can overcome any tribulation or personal problem that we face in life. As we were teaching the district impression came into my mind. INVITE HIM TO BE BAPTIZED! Always have to follow what the spirit tells you and he said yes. Isn't awesome how the spirit can communicate with us these things! I am so grateful for the spirit because without it I wouldn't be able to help people come unto Christ! There is no other way to do missionary work. You have to be obedient, work hard and follow the spirit. Brother Smith referring us to his friend also gives us insights that he feels the joy that comes from living the Gospel. It's amazing to be a part of miracles like this daily!

We didn't get a chance to go down to Valemount this past weekend, we are planning on going this upcoming Friday and returning Saturday night. Elder Larsen and I are excited to get back out there. Raquel is progressing and she's been reading the Book of Mormon.

It's really exciting to hear that Lasalle ward is working hard and even more wonderful to hear that Heavenly Father has blessed us with 4 baptisms in May! That's wonderful.

I continue to think about all the has been accomplished on my mission. I know that it is only through the strength that I've received from my Heavenly Father that I've been able to work miracles. Heavenly Father gives me strength when I feel that I can't work anymore, it's incredible and it's wonderful to be involved in this work. It brings me so much joy to see people change, it makes me happy to make my brothers and sister happy. I am grateful for the Atonement which makes it all possible.

I'm really excited to talk to everyone on Sunday!

Have a great week!
Love you guys!

Prince George is Amazing

Hey everyone!

 Well all I have to say is this week was absolutely amazing! I'm so excited to be a missionary! I'm so excited for the opportunities that we been blessed with to serve here in Prince George. Quick note about the explosion, I honestly didn't even notice it when it happened. It has affected the city though and many people are praying for the families who've been affected by it. We have been called by Heavenly Father to represent Jesus Christ, I know for a fact that Jesus Christ would go out to these families and comfort them and let them know that no matter what happens families can be together forever as we follow Jesus Christ and keep the commandments. I am very grateful for the Atonement of Jesus Christ which allows us to overcome the hard times, but also allows us to make changes and most importantly be forgiven of our mistakes. 
David and Linda at their Baptism
The Atonement is wonderful, I testify that it works!
I've seen it change people's hearts.

 This past weekend Elder Larsen and I took a 3 hour trip South West to a small town in Robson valley called Valemount. I LOVE THIS PLACE! It is a little town of a little over 1,000 people but it is the best. The reason we went out there is because we received a referral from a member to go and teach a part member family that lives out there. We called up the family and they were really excited to hear from us and they said that they wanted us over at their home asap. So we didn't hesitate we arranged a meeting and we took off. So we left Friday morning and arrived in Valemount on Friday afternoon around 2, we went over and introduced ourselves to the Smith family (The members who allowed us to stay at their home during our time in Valemount, they're awesome too!) then we went and visited the part member family. No joke they were looking out the window waiting for us to arrive and as soon as we pulled in front of their house they opened the door and came out to greet us. We got to know the family for a bit and it turns out that two people in the family aren't members and they are both open to learning and they both have a desire to be baptized! So pretty much just like that Heavenly Father snapped his fingers and blessed Elder Larsen and I with two amazing investigators who we are working with the be baptized in the next upcoming month of May! It really is amazing to just take a step back and really see how involved Heavenly Father is in this work! I am so grateful to be a missionary and an instrument in the hands of God to bring people joy through the teachings of Jesus Christ! The name of the family is the Medina's they are from Mexico and have lived in the United States and Canada. They've been in Canada for a little over 4 years now. There is Brother and Sister Medina and they have two children Omar Jr. who is 14 and Raquel who is 11. Brother Medina and Raquel are both not baptized, the only reason they never got baptized is because there is not branch in Valemount. What's amazing is that there are some amazing families who the members have been working with and Elder Larsen and I feel really strongly that they can be baptized very soon. We also found out that there are several families who are LDS here. Our goal is to start a branch in Valemount, that would be wonderful and what's crazy is I can actually see it happening.

Elder Lahache and Gordie in Burnaby 

 This week is going to be crazy though! Tomorrow we're flying down to Richmond at 7 in the morning we'll spend the day in Richmond then we'll fly back at 7 in the evening. Wednesday we're going down to Quesel again to interview Dennis for his baptism. Thursday and Friday we are going to be having zone conference which I'm really excited for. Then we're going up to Valemount again on Friday and staying until Sunday afternoon. Valemount is so beautiful! We have to come back so you can see it!

Elders Lahache and Larson in Canucks Gear!
 I love this work, and even that doesn't fully express how much I love being a missionary. This is the greatest work that anyone can engage themselves in.

 Have a great week!

New Address

Hey everyone,

 Well first of all I actually forgot to get those pictures form the Wal-Mart, I asked Elder Henderson back in Burnaby to go and pick them up and have them sent to the office.

 Also I realized that I forgot to send you my address last week. It's #303 595 Freeman St. Prince George, B.C. V2M 2R3

 There's actually no snow here, it's all melted and it's been beautiful and sunny everyday! Except for today, it rained a bit. I love it here though! I'm so excited and grateful for the opportunity it is to be here. Heavenly Father is really blessing our area and the zone!

 We had an amazing week! David and Linda were both baptized on Saturday and it was an incredible spiritual experience for all who were present. The spirit was really strong, David was baptized by Bishop Siakuluk and Linda was baptized by Elder Larsen. Then I had the opportunity to confirm them both members of the church and help them receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. Everyone was smiling and it was great, when Linda was baptized she had the biggest smile on her face and the first words that came out of her mouth was "I DID IT!" Then after David was baptized he raised his arms up in the air like he won a race, he was so happy! Elder Larsen and I are both incredibly grateful for the opportunity that we had in helping them to receive this sacred ordinance. It really helped to strengthen my testimony that Heavenly Father does grant us strength that we need to accomplish anything as long as we excessive faith in Jesus Christ.

 We also found a new investigator last week, his name is Josh Miesi and he is honestly one of the most prepared people that I've taught my entire mission. We sat down with him our first lesson together and he asked us about Prophets so we taught him the message of the restoration. Josh expressed to us that he believed what we we discussed and we invited him to be baptized and without hesitation he accepted! So he now has a date for May 19th! Elder Larsen and I know that we are being blessed, Heavenly Father is truly preparing people for the Gospel here. I am so grateful for the influence of the spirit which brings thoughts or scriptures to our remembrance in the hour that we need it! We were in a lesson with Josh and as we were speaking he was expressing one of his concerns and as he was speaking a scripture and the exact page and verse and everything just came to my mind. I could practically see it! I've come to learn to recognize the spirit on my mission and I follow it whenever I receive promptings. We turned to the scripture and it was exactly what he needed to hear. I am grateful for the Book of Mormon, which has been written for us today and helps us overcome individual challenges and problems that we face in our everyday lives!

 This week were also going down to Valemount B.C. which is about 3 1/2 hours away, there's a family who lives out there who has an 11 year old daughter who is not baptized, we got in touch with the family and they said that they wanted us to come over and teach them! So with the way things are looking we are going to have another 2 baptisms next month! It's so exciting, I am grateful that I have an opportunity to be a missionary. We are continuing to see amazing miracles like this happen, and it's amazing because we are seeing those miracles spread through the zone. We are making a push for the missionaries to be exactly obedient in every way. Elder Larsen and I have been doing it and let me tell you the windows of Heaven are being opened upon us, the area and the zone! I am grateful for theses miracles and I know that Heavenly Father works these miracles according to the faith that we have in him. We have such wonderful missionaries in our zone and I am grateful for the opportunity to serve with them!

 On Tuesday and Wednesday we are going to be taking a Greyhound bus down to Quesnel which is about an hour and a half south of Prince George. It's crazy how much traveling we do here. We should be having another zone conference within the next two weeks, I'm really excited because it will be the first conference that we've had in a while since President Tilleman has been in the hospital.

That's all for this week, the church is true, this work is true, the Book of Mormon is the word of God! I forgot my camera so I will send the pictures from the baptism and pictures from our trips to Valemount and Quesnel next week!

Transfered to Prince George

Hey everyone!

 Well I just want to let you all know that first of all after forever I have finally been transferred to an new area! I'm now serving in Prince George in northern British Columbia. I am now a zone leader and my new companion is Elder Larsen from Bountiful Utah. I feel so blessed and privileged to serve here. Mom did you call Sister Tilleman or did Sister Tilleman call you? It seems that lately you've been receiving quite a bit of phone calls from people in the mission! So I was sad to leave Burnaby especially after being there for almost a year, but I'm really excited to work up here in Prince George. The ward here is smaller, I would say there was about 80 people in sacrament meeting. prince George is awesome though, the members and people here are really nice. The pace here is significantly slower, people actually stop and take time to talk as opposed to down in Vancouver, where we usually talk for max 2 minutes. So over the next several weeks I will be adjusting to this new style of missionary work, but I'm so excited to be here!

 We drove up and it's about a 10 hour drive, we left Richmond Thursday afternoon and arrived Friday morning at 10:30 A.M. we slept in a city called Williams lake which is about 2 hours south or Prince George. I drove the whole time, it actually wasn't as bad as I was anticipating it to be, we had some good music and conference talks to listen to so that made it fly by. The drive was amazing and beautiful as well, we drove through the mountains and the Okanagan, which is pretty much like a dessert. It was cool. I didn't really have enough time to say goodbye to anyone, I went say goodbye to Gordie and his family and some other investigators that we were teaching and that was it! We we're so busy because we had to switch apartments with another companionship of missionaries on Wednesday then transfers were Thursday. So it's been a crazy week!

 Prince George is actually much sunnier than Vancouver, at least with my experience of it so far, it's fairly warm out usually 10 degrees on average I would say, yesterday we were out contacting in our suits and that was it, no jackets or anything. There was a lot of snow a few weeks ago but it's all gone now. The weather and landscape really reminds me of home. In Prince George we have three companionships of missionaries, there's Elder Larsen and myself, then there's the sister missionaries (Sister Brushard and Sister Nutell) and a senior couple (Elder and Sister Sterner). We all live in the same apartment complex too which is nice. I honestly haven't seen them though outside of church.

Elder Larsen and I are scheduled to have a baptism this upcoming Saturday! The names of the people getting baptized are David and Linda Ash, they are wonderful people! They have such a powerful testimony of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. They asked that I confirm both of them! Also Linda wants me to sing at the baptism, needless to say Elder Larsen and I are both excited. I'm so excited for the work here, on Sunday a man came to church who wasn't a member and said that one of his friends who's currently investigating invited him to come to church. We talked with him for a bit after church and he said that he loved it and we have an appointment to meet with him this upcoming Friday! How sweet is that, new investigator! Pretty crazy to hear that Uncle Jay is the new YSA branch President he'll do a great job!

 I'll be sending pictures of the baptism next week! I'm just so very grateful for the opportunity to serve a mission for my Heavenly Father. I look back on my mission and I just can't believe the amazing miracles that I've been able to experience. I have complete and total trust in my Heavenly Father, I know that Elder Larsen and I are going to do good here!

 Have a great week, hope you all get feeling well soon!

Transfers Tomorrow

Hey everyone!

 Man does time ever fly on a mission. It's already time for transfers we are receiving our calls tonight I'm crossing my fingers that I will be able to stay in Burnaby. How cool would it be to be able to serve in one area for half my mission! I really love the Burnaby ward, I'll be sad if I go, however I will go wherever the Lord needs me! I'm so grateful for the savior and especially on this Easter weekend. 

 I felt the spirit as I listened to the Easter messages in sacrament, which confirmed to me that Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior and it's through him and his Atoning sacrifice that we are saved, what a wonderful blessing and how blessed we are to have this knowledge of the Atonement in our lives!

  I haven't been able to go and get those pictures yet! We're so and it takes a while to go to the Wal-Mart now that we're on buses. If I do get transferred I will go out of my way to go and get those pictures though. I received both packages that you sent, all the Elders wanted some of the Moose Munch so I gave them some.

 This past week just went by so fast, Sister Kane also mentioned to me on Sunday that she called. On Sunday night we were walking around downtown Burnaby and we were on our way home. We were in a rush because we were trying to catch the bus as we were walking I noticed this man on the street. When I looked at him I received a distinct impression to talk to him. So we did, turns out his brother died the day before and he was praying to God for strength, and help. I am continually humbled by experiences like this one on my mission. I am so grateful for the spirit and I know that we can receive these prompting as we keep ourselves worthy of the spirit! I also received strengthened knowledge that Heavenly Father hears and answers the prayers of those who are humble. I've come to recognize, through experience, that he will often answer prayers through the righteous actions of others. We shared with him the role of the Atonement of Jesus Christ, the plan of salvation, as we bore our testimony to him that because of Jesus Christ he will see his brother again. As we shared this with him he was comforted, his face lit up and he smiled! It felt great to be able to bear testimony to him about the resurrection especially on Easter Sunday!

  We're still working with Krass, he was in Whistler this past weekend so we didn't get a chance to meet with him. He's so ready to be baptized! I know he'll be baptized in April and I'm really excited for that. I keep thinking about that scripture in Alma 29, like Alma my joy if full in the success of bringing my brothers and sisters to Jesus Christ! I was reading this months ensign and it hit me again how powerful the Atonement is! I don't fully understand all the mechanics of the Atonement all that I know is that it works!

 Also I don't know if you know about the new bible videos that the church has come out with. If not go and check them out, here's the link http://www.lds.org/bible-videos/?lang=eng.

 I'll let you know where I am next week! 

 Love you!

Another Amazing Conference

Hey Mom and Dad,
 It's good to hear that everyone at home enjoyed conference. I felt like I was soaking it all up. My spiritual thirst was quenched! I love the abundance of the Spirit that can be felt at each and every single conference. It honestly doesn't surprise me that Jason is already talking about Halloween so funny. It's really cool to hear that you were able to help the young men with the food too Dad. I always say this but I feel so blessed to be a missionary, we receive so many blessings. I know that the lessons that I'm learning here will help me become a better person for the rest of my life! I love the people that we're teaching in Burnaby! I would do anything for them, every time I think of it my testimony of the eternal nature of family grows! We're all children of Heavenly Father so we're all brothers and sisters, and what a privilege it is for me to help my brothers and sister receive the blessings of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. What a blessing it is for us to be a family. We were all taught from General Authorities this weekend about how powerful the family is, it really hit me hard as I listened to the inspired words of M. Russell Ballard! The spirit confirmed to me that we should build strong families, and families should be built upon the sure foundation of the the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Just as it says in Helaman 5:12, if we build upon this foundation we will not fall.
 I'm grateful that I can share these wonderful experiences that I have out here with you! It's crazy a mission seems like it's a lifetime crammed into two years! I am so grateful for the lessons that I have and continue to learn here.
 I am very grateful that Heavenly Father has given us all an opportunity to be a family. I am grateful that through the Gospel and the ordinances performed in the temple that our family can be together forever. Your right it's amazing the have Colton in our family. I can't picture our family without him, same goes for Cody and Kelsey.
 We had a chance to go over and meet with Krassimiere two times this week. There is both good news and bad news. The bad news is he won't be getting baptised on Saturday as we had planned. But the good news is that he still wants to work toward being baptized and is 100% committed. We ran into some problems with the tithing, funny thing is that Krass is perfectly fine with it and is willing to pay. However his wife Maya is really hesitant, and I would say almost against it at this point. Which is completely understandable because if I didn't have a testimony of the Gospel why would I pay tithing? Their whole situation really reminds me of when you both started meeting with the missionaries, because Krass is so open and ready to go and Maya is
really reserved and a little skeptical. What did the missionaries do that helped mom to open up?! I remember that mom always would say that she would sit in on lessons which is very similar to how it is going with Maya. You know what would be great? Is if you can just write out everything that happened then I can print it and give it the Krass and Maya! That way they would feel the power of your testimonies! Would you do that? =) I just feel it's what they need to help them progress.
 Remember a month or two ago I told you about a lady named Betty? Well she is incredibly prepared! We had a chance to meet with her last Tuesday and we talked about the importance of prophets, we bore her our testimony that Heavenly Father has called a prophet on the earth today. She told us that she believed it and that she wanted to watched general conference. We also got to meet with her daughter Tessa, and she told us in the middle of the meeting that she really liked that we> referred to God as Heavenly Father, she said she's never heard anyone call him that before and that it was really powerful. We are so blessed to have this understanding in the church that we do have a Father in Heaven who loves us and wants what's best for us. Just like our parents on earth want us to be the best that we possibly can and be happy! It makes sense and it's true. Anyway Betty is doing really well, we don't get to meet with her as often as we would like, she's recovering from cancer and it drains much of her energy. When we do meet though, the spirit is always there. She's an incredibly humble lady, and Elder Henderson and I both feel privileged with the opportunity it is to teach her the Gospel.
 I didn't receive my Easter package yet! But we are in Richmond today and if it's there I am going to grab it. We also didn't have time to grab those pictures at Wal-Mart yet, we'll be going to get those today as well.
 I realized the next day that when I wrote you last week I pretty much wished you a happy Easter when it's this upcoming weekend, not last weekend. So happy Easter! and I hope that everything goes good at Best Western!
 Have a good week!

The Weeks Are Just Passing By

Hey everyone!
 We emailed really early last week and we are again. It's eaiser to do email first thing in the morning because then we have the rest of the day to do everything we need to. Pday's are just as busy as a regular day! I honestly didn't think it was going to be like that when I first started my mission, but that's the way it is!
 Elder Henderson had a chance to meet with Krassimiere this week while I was on exchange with the Vancouver Elders. Krassimiere has set a baptismal date for April 7th! I'm really excited for him, he's very humble and teachable and everyone in the ward loves him! I knew that he was going to be baptised since the first day we met him at Aram (member's son) baptism. He talked with us about how he felt unclean and that he wanted to be baptised again so that he could have a fresh start. From what Elder Henderson tells me the appointment went really well and Krass is doing so good. When they asked him to be baptised on April 7th he was shocked because his father died one year ago on April 6th. He says that he knows this is the say that Heavenly Father wants him to be baptised. While he was praying he said he was grateful that we were there to help him and he was grateful that he was able to feel the Spirit. Missionary work is wonderful, it's amazing to help others come unto Christ. It's amazing to see the changes that the Gospel brings to people.
 The weeks just keep on going by faster and faster, I mean it just seems like yesterday I wrote you guys. The work in Burnaby is going well. I'm really excited for General Conference though, it's going to be great. We're so blessed to have modern Prophets and Apostles speak to us.
 So to answer you questions as to what I need. I can't really think of anything off the top of my head. I don't need contacts I should be good on those untill the end of my mission. But I will need more when I get back. I will go to pick up those photos when I get a chance this week. We're always right near that Wal-Mart now because it's right next to one of the major skytrain stations. I have not hear anything back from Concordia yet, it's been almost a month so I would think we are going to be hearing something soon. It's good to hear that Ma is okay. I'll continue to pray for her.
 I am very grateful for the scriptures, especially the Book of Mormon. I rely on the testimonies that are in it when we teach, and when we do use it the spirit always bears testimony that what we are reading is true. I know that anyone who prays about it can recieve an answer from the Holy Ghost confirming to them that it is the word of God and the he has again called a Prohpet in the earth.
We recieved a refferal from a missionary who is serving his mission in the philipines but lives in Burnaby. His whole family is Catholic execpt for him. We went over and knocked on the door and when the dad opened he smiled. It was nice because the family was very welcoming and it stood as a witness to me that serving a mission blesses our families as well as those who we care for while we're here. I'm very grateful for my mission. It's made me such a better person. I know that the Gospel is the way for us to find happiness while were here, and if we follow the Gospel Heavenly Father has promised us that we can be with our families forever. I know that it's true and is made possible through Jesus Christ.
This week is looking good again, conference is going to be awesome. The weather last weekend was amazing, not a single cloud in the sky. I hope it will be like that again this week, so far it's not looking like that though, it's raining as we speak.
Have a great week, and a good time in Platsburgh, it's wierd to think I will be there for next year.

Another Great Week

 Hey everyone!
 This week was great! I am so humbled and blessed with all that is happening in the mission as well as in the area. This past week the Elders in Vancouver YSA, had a baptism! I was so happy and proud of them, the spirit was there in the meeting with us and we all felt the Spirit testify that this is the gate we all must enter to begin our journey back to our Father in Heaven. I am so grateful for the Atonement of Jesus Christ. I know that it is through him and his love that we can return to our Heavenly Father.
 We had a really good week, we were so busy just doing our best to arrive to all our appointments on time. On Saturday we were privileged with an opportunity to meet with Elder Richard G. Maynes again! He visited the mission a little over 6 months ago and now he is our new area President. It was great to be able to stand in front of him and know that we as a mission applied that counsel that he gave to us 6 months ago. The mission as a whole really changed when he came, as a result Heavenly Father has been pouring an abundance of blessings upon the mission. Last month the mission as a whole had 30 baptisms! That has only happened a handful of times in the past 10 years. Now half way through March it is looking like we are going to reach 30 again if not more! I am really excited to see the miracles that are happening here, and even more humbled for the opportunity it is for me to involved in this wonderful work.
We got to meet with Krassimiere again this week. He's as awesome as ever, he is so humble and teachable, it almost seems to easy to teach him just because of how accepting of everything he is! We taught him the message of the restoration this past week and he said himself that it was necessary for the Gospel to be restored through Joseph Smith! It strengthened my testimony to hear him say that and I felt the spirit once again testify to me that this work is true. I am grateful for the spirit in case I haven't gotten that message across in the past. I don't know where I would be or how I would work without it, it is such an essential part of this work.

I am confident that Krassimiere will be baptized in April, our goal is for him to be baptized on April 7th. He is solid and continues to come to church every Sunday, in our last lesson we asked him where he was in his reading of the Book of Mormon. He told us that he was up to Lehi's vision then he started to tell us about it and his understanding was prefect. He explained everything clearly as if he had studied it several times before, we testified to him that the spirit was teaching him as he read. 

 I had to opportunity to speak with President Tilleman this week, he is doing well and he has asked me to thank all those who have prayed and fasted for him. He has made a full recovery and is currently going through rehabilitation. I am grateful for the power of the Priesthood which allows us to pronounce blessings of healing. I know that the Priesthood is real, and that we must always be worthy to hold it
 This work is wonderful, I feel so blessed to be a servant of my Father in Heaven. The Gospel of Jesus Christ does bring people lasting happiness, that happiness will last forever if we endure to the end. Throughout my mission I have come to understand our Savior's love. I testify that he lives, that he loves us and that he has again called a Prophet to lead and guide us in these the latter days. Our Heavenly Father is a God of order and he is the same yesterday, today and forever. I testify that through the power of Jesus Christ's atonement we can be forgiven of our sins, we will be given the power and strength to overcome all opposition that we are faced with in this life. I know that is true. As I've humbled myself and have prayed for guidance from my Heavenly Father, he listens and in his time answers.
The work is growing, miracles are happening in the mission. I know that as we continue to exercise faith that all things are possible with God.
 Hope you all have a great day and a fantastic week.

We See Miracles Everyday

Hey everyone!
 Sorry I didn't get to send you an e-mail yesterday. There was a wind storm and as a result many buildings either lost power or their internet connection. All the Libraries in Burnaby had no internet yesterday. I've never seen it so windy here before, it looked like the trees were about to fall over, luckily none of them did. There are parts of trees in the streets though and they're still cleaning up today. Burnaby had become my new mission home! I've been here since June so that's a little over 9 Months, by the time the transfer is over I would have been here 10 and a half months. The members are impressed because no missionary has been here for such a long time! I think at home the only missionary who came close was Elder Kurtz. It's been great I'm very excited with the work that we're doing here. Last week we had 24 and a half member hours! Either with members at appointments or on the streets with us talking to people. That's the most that I've had my entire mission, it felt great. Heavenly Father has blessed us so much. The ward goal is to have 20 member hours, the closest missionaries have 

A member invited us over to show us how to make sweet and sour
chicken. So this is the picture after we finished cooking everything.
ever got was 15-17. Last Sunday we talked with the Priesthood and let them now that this week we wanted to reach the goal. Everyone said they would do their part in helping us, so when we went to Bishop on Sunday and reported that we had 24 and a half his jaw just dropped open, it was funny. This week we're going for 20 hours again, I know we can do. Elder Henderson and I have been working really hard. We got to meet with Gordie's mom on Sunday and we discussed Gordie's baptism. I am set and determined to have his baptism set and ready to go that way if I ever do get transferred everything will already be set. He's such a great guy, his mom's main concern from what I understand is family. Specifically how Gordie being baptized would affect his mom's side of the family, who for the most part are all Catholic. We invited her to pray and ask God what is right, but we bore powerful testimony of the importance of baptism and invited her to start meeting with us again to which she accepted. I know that with Heavenly Father on our side he will help us to help Gordie be baptized. It's his birthday today by the way he's turning 17 years old!
The other day we were on the skytrain and I always wear these red Canada mittens to keep my hands warm because we're always outside. We're waiting at a skytrain station and a train pulls up and the doors open, this old mad walks out looks at my gloves then looks at me. Then he tells me that it's not cold and that I don't need to be wearing those gloves and that I was only wearing them to "show off". Then he stormed off all upset, Elder Henderson and I just looked at each other and laughed, especially because I sometimes use my Canada gloves as a way to start a conversation with someone.
 The Sullivan's are doing alright, we visited with Winnie on Saturday and she told us that she hasn't read The Book of Mormon yet. It really makes me sad to hear when people don't read because I know how much reading will help them have a better life, it's really that simple! We got her a huge copy of The Book of Mormon because she said she has difficulty reading the small print. We're going by again on Wednesday, I really hope that she's doing well. We're going to be getting the Jing family involved, they're good friends with Winnie and Kevin already and we hope that will help them progress.
 Krassimiere came to church with his whole family for the first time on Sunday! Krassismiere has come several times with his son but that's it, so it was really awesome to have their whole family with us! We're going to be seeing them tonight actually and I'm excited to see how it goes!
 The work here is going good. I'm excited for the wonderful miracles that we see happen here daily! The spirit is involved and we are seeing people's lives being blessed as they apply the Atonement of Jesus Christ in their lives. I am grateful for the Gospel and all the blessings it brings as we make it a part of who we are!
 It's great to hear that everyone had a good time in Florida! Also about the pictures, are you talking about the ones that you sent a little after Christmas, or did you send newer ones?
 Have a great week!

I'm Still in Burnaby!

Hey everyone!
 I just wanted to apologize about my short e-mail again last week. The mission received transfer calls on Monday this time, usually it's Tuesday. We didn't get a call in Burnaby, Elder Henderson and I will be staying in Burnaby for another 6 weeks, all the missionaries that I serve around think it's crazy how long I've been here and even crazier that I'm staying everyone thought I was going. It's great though I love Burnaby and I really love the people here. All the members were really happy that I'm staying too. People were telling me that I should just have my membership records moved here.
 This week has been so much fun though. We were blessed with an opportunity to teach Krassimiere and his whole family this week. We were able to teach them at the home of the Hernandez family. It was such a good experience, we testified of how the Gospel blesses families, when brother and sister Hernandez bore their testimonies the spirit was so strong! I am so grateful to be in Burnaby because we have amazing members here with powerful testimonies and they actually want to be involved in missionary work.
 Also this past week we had a new ward mission leader called. I was really happy about that because we've been without a ward mission leader for almost 4 months now! While we had no ward mission leader, the missionaries were basically doing their best to fill that role. We had our first meeting with our ward mission leader, Brother Stuart this week and we prayed and asked Heavenly Father what he wanted us to do. After praying we all felt that we should focus on calling ward missionaries to serve alongside us. So that's what we're working on now and I'm really excited because I know that the more members we get involved in the work, the quicker the work will progress.
 Gordie was really happy to hear that I'm staying and so was his whole family. He's going to be getting baptized when he graduates from High School, which is this year. I hope that I'm still here to see his baptism if not, I hope that President Tilleman will permit me to make a quick trip to Burnaby to see him be baptized!
 I feel so blessed to be a missionary because I know how much I've grown while I've been here. But most importantly I am grateful for the wonderful opportunities that I've had to help wonderful people who are my friends to come closer to Jesus Christ. Last night we went drop by a part member family named the Sullivan's. Brother Sullivan actually served his mission in Quebec and spent quite a bit of time around the Granby area. He really loved his mission. Anyway missionaries have tried teaching Sister Sullivan several times in the past, it seemed that no progress was made with her though. So last night we went over and Elder Henderson and I were praying that what we had planned to share would be what she needed to hear to start investigating seriously. We said a prayer and explained the purpose of the Book of Mormon and read the introduction with her. As we read together she expressed that she never understood exactly what the Book of Mormon was and why it was so important. She said because of what we told her tonight it makes clear logical sense and that she would read and pray about it. We also invited them to come to church next Sunday and they said yea!
 Looking down the road I know that there is tons of work to be done in Burnaby. I know I've been here a while but I truly feel that the Lord is keeping me here for a purpose. Being here for as long as I have I know the area extremely well and I feel that we can use members effectively because of the relationship that we've been able to establish.
 I'm excited to keep working and serving the Lord the best that I possibly can!
Have a great week in Florida,

 Elder Kameron Lahache

Transfers Tomorrow

Hey everyone,

It's been a great week. I don't have much time. This week is transfers, I'm going to be finding out tonight if I'm being transferred or not. I don't feel like I will be but we'll see.

This week has been great though, we had a really good week at church. Gordie comes every Sunday and we have a new investigator who comes to church, his name is Krassimiere. He's from Bulgaria and he's awesome, he came to the church by himself. He is looking for a church for his family. I'm excited to see the progress that he will make.

 We're still on bus, but we might be getting a car soon. I really like being on bus, I feel that our area is way too big though. If we have to give up a car so that someone needs to have one that's fine with me.

 We've been working really hard here and I know that the Lord will bless us according to our efforts. I'm really happy to have all my school stuff done. Now I can devote myself 100% again! I've been doing my best but I'm not going to lie it's been on my mind.

I do have a testimony that Heavenly Father wants the best for us. He provides a way for us to do all that he asks. I've been praying and asking Heavenly Father to help me to have the time to do all that I needed to for school and I have had the time to do it. I am so grateful for all that Heavenly Father has given me. I testify that he loves us, and wants what's best for us.

 I hope that you all have a great week at Florida, your leaving this week right? I'll write a more detailed letter next week. Thank you so much for all that you do!

 I love you,

So Busy This Week Flew By!

 Hey Everyone!

  President Tilleman, as far as I know left the hospital this morning. He is going to be going through rehab for about 2-4 weeks, we'll see how it goes but he is recovering FAST and QUICK too. It's wonderful to see the Lord's hand in his recovery, I feel more than anything that this experience will do nothing but help the mission.

 This week went by so fast! I was barely in my area this week, I got to go on exchange with missionaries from the district. I went out first with The Vancouver YSA Elders, I was with Elder Bird and he actually came out the same time as I did. We were in the MTC at the same time we just never had a chance to meet each other until we got out to the mission field. The YSA missionaries are doing really well, they are having a baptism this Saturday, so I will be going to do my first baptismal interview. It should be fun I'm excited because I hear that they're incredibly spiritual experiences. I was on exchange with the YSA elders untill Wednesday night then on Thursday night I went to Coquitlam, which is just east of Burnaby. Coquitlam was just opened this last transfer so the Elders there have alot of work to do so it was really exciting to be a part of it. I got to go on exchange with Elder Harr who is actually a new missionary from Nevada. He's a really great Elder with a powerful testimony of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

 I am so grateful for the opportunity that I have to serve as a mission. I've learned so much and my testimony of the Gospel continues to grow each and everyday. We set a baptismal date with one of our investigators named Mac, for March 17th. It was funny because Elder Henderson extended the invitation to be baptized. When he heard Mac say yes Elder Henderson about fell off his seat. He thought that he heard wrong so he asked Mac to be baptized again a second time, to which he accepted once again. I just smiled and we testified of the importance of baptism. The spirit was there and now we're working with Mac so he can make the necessary steps to prepare himself to be baptized! Once we were out of the appointment Elder Henderson was ecstatic, he started calling all the missionaries in the district describing what had happened. It was really funny because he was so excited for Mac as am I.

 This Sunday we had someone called to be our new ward mission leader. So I'm really excited to start working with him. I know having a ward mission leader will help the work in Burnaby progress much faster than it is now.

 Being on Bus is so much fun. It does take alot longer to go places though, it took us an hour and a half to get from one end of our area to the other on Thursday afternoon, luckily we planned two hours of travel time between those two appointments. If we didn't we would have never made it on time! It's great though we have good long conversations with people. It's funny because all we have to do is start talking to people and somewhere down the line they always ask us who we are and what we're doing. I just love being a missionary, and it's truly a wonderful blessing to be able to share this Gospel with my brothers and sisters here.

 Sounds like everyone had a great time at Cody's birthday party! I'm excited to see the pictures when they come.

Tell everyone at home I said Hi!
 Have a great week!

Please Pray For President Tilleman

 Hey everyone!

 President Tilleman is in the hospital right now, he's recovering from an accident that he had in which he suffered spinal damage. Please keep President Tilleman in your prayers.

Also District Leader and trainer responsibilities don't necessarily have to go together. For example I was just a trainer before a district leader, and there are many district leaders who are just that, however I am currently doing both. It's a wonderful opportunity for me to serve the missionaries in the district though I love it! I am very humble for the Lord's call and I am relying on him now more than I ever have because I not only need to receive counsel about the area but now about what we can do to help make the missionaries better.

 I'm not sure what to think about how much longer I'll be in Burnaby. At the end of this transfer I will have been here 9 months! Which is awesome I love being in Burnaby and I know it like the back of my hand. This past Sunday Elder Henderson and I were asked to give talks, so at the beginning when Bishop was introducing the speakers he said "We'll be hearing from two wonderful speakers today, first we will hear from Elder Lahache" Then he paused and said "well we might as well just start calling him Brother Lahache because of how long he's been here." It's great to be in an area for such a long time because I've really been able to develop a strong relationship with the members, which is great because it helps with the work in so many ways.

 I can't believe how quick time goes by on the mission. We've been getting around great on the bus system, it's wonderful because we get to talk to people all the time. I am ready for it to stop raining though I'm not going to lie. It was great today because it's sunny.

 This week is already looking really busy we have 17 lessons set so we have to plan carefully so we can arrive to all our appointments on time. I'm going to be going on exchange two times this week with the Vancouver YSA area and Coquitlam. It's interesting because they are my primary focus now. President told me that my priority is first with the Lord, then to him and then to the missionaries in the district. That's what it says in the white handbook so that's what I'll do! I am grateful for the leaders of the mission who work so hard so that we can be the missionaries Heavenly Father wants us to be.

 Tell President Kaufman that I received his letter and that I appreciate the time that he took to write me. It was nice to get a quick update from him. See if you can get his address at home so I can send him a quick note saying thank you.

 So if there is anything else that I need to do for school let me know. Like you said we need to work fast so we can make this happen.

 Have a good week, I love you guys!

Time Is Flying By

 Dear Mom and Dad

 I heard about the Giants winning the superbowl yesterday! I was so happy and I could only imagine how crazy every at home must have went! I can't believe how fast time is going by!

  I've been over my cold for about a week and a half, Elder Henderson thought he was getting sick but he turned out to be okay. This week was our first week on the bus, I really like it because we're out all the time and there isn't a moment of the day where your not around people. So we get to talk to people on the street on the bus and even skytrain, it's like the metro system back home only here it's above ground even above the road! Anyway it's great being able to talk to people all the time I love it! Sometimes there are people who are really grouchy and just don't want to talk at all, but I don't let it mess with me, I just try to make them laugh and have a good day. It's especially funny talking with the Chinese people because all you have to do is speak a little Chinese and they freak out! Then once you've impressed them with your language skills you can talk to them about anything and they'll listen.

 Many of our appointments that we had set fell through this week, which is okay because we're still getting used to getting around this huge area on public transportation. This week is looking really great, Elder Henderson and I are ready to work hard!

 Tell Alex that I did not receive his e-mail from before Christmas! For future reference if anyone wishes to e-mail me my email address is kameron.lahache@myldsmail.net anyone can e-mail me, but I can only reply family. If anyone e-mails me who is not family please include your address so that I can write you back a letter! Thanks!

 Also I did receive the most glorious pizza from Papa John's from Shawn and Mattie on my birthday! It totally made my day! Tell them I said thanks, I'll be writing them today also.
My New Clean!!! Apartment

Our new apartment is beautiful and we're able to keep it nice and clean just the way I like because it is only Elder Henderson and I living there. When we lived at the old place I had to clean up after everyone, all the missionaries started calling me Papa Lahache because they said I was the father of the house.

We've been working with the ward these past few weeks with the ward, to help less active members return back to church. Every single person is important in the eyes of our Heavenly Father, it's great because when we're there in the appointment I can feel Heavenly Father's love for that individual. I listen to the spirit and it guides us to know what to say that will help this certain person. I also know that it is important for us to be obedient so that we are worthy to have that companionship and guidance of the Holy Ghost.

 This past week we received word that President Tilleman is in the hospital and is recovering from an accident. Please pray for him that he will get well soon. It's nothing serious, but he could definitely use all the prays that he can so that he'll be able to get back to work!

The work in Burnaby is still going strong, I'm excited because we're working in more unity with the ward than we ever have before. If we want to get more baptisms in this mission we need more missionaries, the members are those missionaries that we need to us more fully. We've also been focusing in on part member families and that has been incredibly successful and they when they start investigating the spouse is there to support them all the time. That's exactly what we need, I'm excited to see the fruits of all the hard work that we're doing.

Gordie Carley is still progressing well, he had a testimony and wants to be baptized, his mom said that he can be baptized after he graduates which will be this upcoming summer. If I do get transferred I hope that that I can come back for that because, I've been with him every single step of the way, it would be amazing to see him take this step in coming closer to his Heavenly Father! I don't really feel like I'm going to be transferred anytime soon either, you guys are right!
 Tell everyone at home that I love them and pray for them daily!

I love you all too!
