April Week 5

Well hello all,
So Life here is awsome, I am loving Rajahmundury, and I am loving the work, other then the Heat, yesterday it was about 52 degrees Celsius, ya lets just say its really hot, I cant go out of my room with AC with out being soaked, I look like I have stepped out of the shower, and then when I am riding my cycle It is even worse, but thats life.
Well I have a cool story to tell today, so to start off we met this sister the other day that is Musulim, now most of the time we have to be really carful about teaching them because thier parents dont usually approve, well we started to teach this sister, and she has really opened up to us, she has a ton of doubts about her own faith, and she wants to know which religion is the truth, well so we are teaching her the truth, and she understands really well. we gave her a book of mormon yesterday, and she was so excited that we had to stop her from reading while we where talking to her. well thats my cool little story, I am really hoping that she will take baptizem, and change from the foolish traditions of her fathers. but we will see...
Well I am glad to hear that everthing is going well at home, I really have been thinking about how things are going to be a lot different when I get home, I am so supprised that things are so different already.
Well I just want you all to know that I know that this is the true church of Jesus Christ, I know that my Redeemer lives, and that he loves each and every one of us, I am so greatfull for the tempels, and the blessings that we gain from going and keeping and making those Covenents, I really love my heavenly father. I know that he loves us and shows that love by calling prophets, I know that Joseph smith is a true Propeht, and that through him we know the truth of all things. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of god, and that any question we have can and will be answered by and trough it.
I know that The Prophet Thomas S. Monsen is a prophet of god, and that he really does speak the lords words.
I know that Jesus is the Chirst the son of the living god, he is my personal savior, and he does speak to us if we live rightously.
I love you all,
Elder Colton Frederick

Hi elder Colton,
Your mom gave us the blog spot so we can keep track of you. Sounds like your having a great time. And what an opportunity to work with non Christians. We had lots of luck in the mission holding family home evenings. It is a non threatning atmosphere and those attending start bonding.You may want to team up with some members and try it out.

Keep up the good work and if you get a minute drop us a note.
