Well it's been another amazing week in the service of our Lord and Savior, I LOVE IT! well some things first, I'm in a threesome, training, and district leader. Haven't seen the Lund's but I am on the lookout for them.
 Sounds like everyone is super busy! Love to hear it, just remember to keep the Lord close. Congrats Alexis on Graduation!!!! I'm sorry to miss the party but I think if I were there I probably would have done something dumb so I'm happy to be here in the Lord's vineyard. Dad how were the Islands? find us some big boulders? You should go on splits with the missionaries when you go recruiting! think of the opportunity!!! Well here's a miracle that happened this week.
  One day Elder 이승봉 came to me and asked me to talk. We talked and he is experiencing some difficulties. Not only was he still searching for an answer to his prayers and waiting for confirmation from the spirit; but his family is facing some struggles at home and he is worried about them and feels helpless here as a missionary. It was a humbling experience to talk with him and feel of his pains. As we talked I prayed that the spirit would lead me to say the things that needed to be said. Well I asked him some questions concerning prayer and gaining answers to whether God exhists and what not. he had told me that he of course wanted to get an answer but that he wasn't quite sure if he believed he would get an answer. After talking and doing the best I could to comfort him we went to start language study and before starting I asked Heavenly Father to give my companion a spiritual confirmation. While praying i thought of the question I asked to him, "do you believe you will get an answer when you pray?" So as I prayed I tried so hard to focus on this and just believe and have faith that He could get this spiritual confirmation. While praying I felt that familiar feeling of peace and assurance from the spirit. Well I started language study, then 30 minutes later 이승봉 came to me and said that while studying he was dosing off but that he woke up randomly and just was washed over by a feeling of peace and comfort and that it was weird. I explained to him that it was from the spirit and that his prayers and my prayer had been answered. We hugged for 5 minutes and wept because we had both witnessed a miracle from God. After the tears had passed he looked at me and said, "now I can say that I know God lives and exhists." I was overwhelmed by this spiritual experience and how both our testimonies grew from it. I gained a witness that as a missionary I'm doing the work of the Lord. That I'm helping at least one person come unto Christ. I'm so grateful for the ever watchful eye of the Lord. I love this work, I love these people, I love this Gospel.
My companions are so cute and so awesome, I love them dearly. Well anyways, this next week is transfers.... AHHH I've been with 이승봉 for 2 transfers and my Son Elder Gardner for 1. So I should stay here in 동대문 and finish raising up my "seed" that means my fresh from the MTC missionary. However....I'm just the weirdest transferring missionary in our mission so it will be interesting. especially because next transfer is the split of the mission. So if i go south it's most likely i would be in the new South Misison. Crazy crazy! 

Well I love you! 
What's this google thing going on? Tell mom to talk to me about it. By the way mom, how come you never talk about what you are doing??? and quit saying "just being a mom".... and is Devin gettting massive?

How's my gorgeous little sister?! I'm so excited for your prom!

Send me some pictures! i would love to see you all! I wanna see Alexis's hair!

Oh yeah,  have Dev and Brons do a flexing picture side by side so i can make some comparisons..... really though do it! 

Love you bye!

Hi, Bye, sorry so short

 What is this news thing people are sending me that I see my Mother's beautiful face on!! what's google fiber?... Dad.....don't get lost at sea, or i'll have to go get him (i'm pretty close right?)
 Lex tell me about your coaching skillz. 
Brons, get merrriaged.
 Daryl and Devin....straight and narrow baby!
Anyways, this will be quick because we have to get going. 
Well this week was good. Picked up an amazing new investigator who is super nice and just seems great and golden! He asked us all to share how we came to know God and convert personally to the church. I bore testimony of 3Nephi 11 and how that is when I received an undeniable witness from the spirit that Jesus is the Christ and that the Book Of Mormon is True. The spirit just filled us all! It was great well

 That's really all I have time for.
 I love you all so much, I'm so grateful for your examples and your prayers. 
Keep taking up the cross daily!
Love Elder Kaufusi

I live! and I loved General Conference!‏

My most beautiful amazing angel mother who I love miss and think about daily. I LOVE YOU, and I'm fine!

Well here I am again, just on Pday emailing you all as normal as can be, wink wink.
 well mother and family, don't worry. North Korea is just being a big baby....they remind me of Satan. 

anyways things are fine. Don't watch CNN they stink and exaggerate everything. 

Well Hmm it was my birthday last week huh?....AND THE BOX WAS AWESOME! thank you so much, such a blessing to have the best family in the World. It was good, I actually didn't want my birthday to be anything but then I got a surprise birthday party, and a surprise call from the office to sing happy birthday and stuff. It was fun, and I'm grateful for the people that the Lord has put in my Life.

 Anyways, yesterday and saturday was conference and wow it was great. It was amazing and i felt like there are so many things I can do to better myself and what not. First, I learned of being a witness of Christ. All the general authorities said at one point or another that they were Witnesses. Well, what is a witness, what does that entail? Witnessing of the Savior Jesus Christ is one of the greatest things we can do in our lives. For truly through doing this we will progress spiritually past all hardships and trials. To be a witness we must yield our hearts to him and allow ourselves to take up the cross and follow him. Consecration to his work is vital. I hope you are all being witnesses and doing MISSIONARY WORK!! I think about my ward and what I wish they could do to help us in the work and then I thought, "did I do waht the missionaries needed me to do for them before my mission?"....Well Now's the time to start!! 

Also, I learned of families and it was another witness of the great blessing which I have enjoyed to this point in my life. O how I can't wait for the Eternities where I can live with you all foreover. Well I'd say more but I'm out of time. 

I love you all so much. 
Keep up the work of the Lord in our home!
Love, Elder Kaufusi!
PS. I have been given "The action plan of escape" for if and when the time comes. I may be able to live out my dream of playing Rambo. I will get my 15 missionaries I am over out....and alive....and returned to their  momma's. Never forget, I have a "special set of skills" and I am not afraid to use them....called the Book of Mormon!

We got bombed.....BY THE SPIRIT!

1) We got bombed.....BY THE SPIRIT! 
2) haven't seen general conference yet but next week we watch it....looking for another spiritual Bombing.
3)....if i need anything, it's.... american toothpaste.... haha
Ok I love you all!
 Sounds like the Delayed Easter was a blast!  Man that easter bunny is atrickster! Glad to hear everyone is doing ok.

 I hope everyone is staying on the Straight and narrow and making time for Our Father In Heaven, and making church a priority. Literally that is the one thing I hoped our investigators did. They pray, they read but they do not go to church and it just breaks my heart! Revelation through church attendance is so crucial, but more than that the sacrament's cleansing power is something close to the feeling of exaltation!  

A miracle this week was I was proselyting on the street and this man didn't say a word to me. But, I was persistant and just told him about our message and bore testimony. He didn't say a word the whole time or look at me. After crossing the cross walk I offered him a Card and he refused... then he took 2 steps, came back and grabbed it from me. It was neat to know that maybe the testimony of a 19yr old boy could maybe change the thoughts of a 40yr old man through the spirit. Well it doesn't end. Unlike almost all other Koreans he callled and we met with him and now he's an investigator. It's a miracle. He has a very interesting personality and he doesn't understand alot of what we teach. I taught every principle in the first lesson 3 times and he still didn't understand. My companions were losing their minds. after my companion asked me how I had the patience for that and I sat and thought then said, Well first, it wasn't really me having patience, it was the spirit giving it to me. Then second, the Savior has been patient with me time and time again, so why not represent him justly. 

This man is just another child of God preparing for the Waters of Baptism. 
I love you all! Stay strong in the Faith of he Christ!
