I love my mother!

Dear Family and Friends,

It has been a really great week.  Happy Mother's Day!  I got to Skype my mom and dad today and it was a great experience.  I won't drone on too long about my mom, but suffice it to say she is a wonderful mother!  I feel that she is never sad for herself, whenever I have seen her worried, distressed, or in tears it is always for others (maybe especially her children).  It is because she truly cares for us and is anxious for our welfare. I'm glad I have somebody like that watching my back!  

Macau is the area I'm serving in now.  It is a city just an hour boat ride away from Hong Kong.  I love it here very much!  We are having good success thanks to the Lord.  We are Zone Leaders now so we have a lot of added pressure and things to think about, but it is all for good.  Even in our weakness, the Lord expects great things out of us.  I think he does it this way so he can give us the opportunity to grow and receive his grace.  I have definitely felt that grace again as we've taken on this new responsibility.

I don't have much to say today except that I love my mother!  And I love you all as well.
