Here are his final thoughts and photos from CCSM...
Saturday was so busy. We woke up early to play some basketball. We then helped some older folks in our ward move some furniture out of their home. We went home and got ready for the wedding of one of our investigators (they're now living the law of chastity, so he's right on track to baptism!). We had a teaching appointment and lunch with a family in our ward and another teaching appointment right after that.

Saturday night we went out to dinner with another set of missionaries.We had one last appointment with our new investigator that night, which went really well. We got home at around 9:00 p.m. and we were all dead tired. Easily one of the busiest days of my life haha.
Sunday went really well. We had a great lesson in elders quorum about remaining happy in times of trouble. It was definitely what I needed. A quote that really hit me was, "God is at the helm, we have no need to worry". Simple, but profound. This'll be a phrase I live by for the rest of my life.
I'm happy to hear things went well with the Vegas trip family. Sounds like mica tore it up! Watching those clips you sent me made me miss rugby so much. I hope the rest of the season goes awesome!
Sorry, I know this is a super short update. I'm still just a little shocked at the whole visa situation.
I wish you guys an awesome week. Do all that you can to serve others! Remember that Heavenly Father and His Son, Jesus Christ are always there for us. We just need to come unto them!
Scripture of the week 3 Nephi 22: 7-8
Love and miss you all!
