Words from Elder Garrett Hollembeak in West Virginia

"I hope you guys are doing well and enjoying less snow than we have here. The whole town has been shut down for the last couple of days so we weren't able to email on Monday.  This week we are helping with the Chinese New Year Party and planning a big game tournament at the institute for all of the university students. One of the guys we are working with for the New Years party wants us to have a booth there so that we can tell people about our faith and dispel misconceptions people may have about the church. I have learned that missionary work is more than tracting and teaching, its also establishing the fact that the church of Jesus Christ helps everyone from missionaries to international students to every member in every ward. Hyrum Smith said to teach the most basic principles of the gospel over and over because each time we will learn exactly what our Father in Heaven wants us to know. I have faith that this is true and a testimony that this is the restored gospel of our Savior Jesus Christ. I love you guys and I can't wait to talk to you again on Monday."
