Dear Family,
I hope you all watched all of the conference sessions!! Okay I understand if you didn't but know that I actually pay attention and Try to learn I don't know how you wouldn't want to watch all the sessions!! This church is awesome!! I agree with you mom I feel the main topic was love!! For sure!! Okay okay okay the best talk... ELDER HOLLAND!!! like always he is awesome!! That talk was so powerful!! I can't wait untill the liahona comes out and we can read through it again and study all the other talks!! Our awesome investigator, Zulma, Came to the last session and really liked it. She was a little bugged that we didn't tell her to bring something to take notes ha ha When we talked to her about it after she said it was really good and also that she met someone she knew and he said that when she gets baptised he will sing at her bauptism meeting!! She still doesn't feel ready but she knows its coming!! Hopefully I get to see her enter the waters!! I love teaching her! It makes everything awesome!! She likes to see us and learn its awesome!! Everyone she knows basically doesn't agree with her going to church and all and she has had 5 deaths in her family in the last 5 weeks but she is still strong!! She is a great example!! So transfers are a week from tomorrow so I guess we'll see what happens... Anyway sorry I dont have much time but I love you all and thanks for you support!! Be ever faithful!! Study the basics of the gospel regularly with pray!! I know life is awesome when we feel the spirit everyday!! Sincerely pray!! I know our prays are answered!! I love this gospel and I love this family!! Have a good week and I'll talk to you next week!!!!!!!
Love Elder Knudsen!

I love the mission!!!

Dear Family,
This week has been awesome!! Its like a different world out here on a mission. A world that I've always wanted!! It seems like everyone knows us and everyone wants to talk to us. When we're ridding from appointment to appointment we see people that we have contacted and they are always happy to see us. Everyone is always giving us stuff wherever we go! Like is a banana man who gave us like 20 or 30 bananas and like a guy that sales hair gel that just gives us like tubs of it even thought we don't use it. I love knowing everyone and almost everyone having good feelings to us!
So The father of the kid I baptized isn't really progressing still. We're still going to work with him and tonight we have a family night with him and his family at the house of our New investigator, the one who prayed in church last week (Zulma). Zulma is progressing loads. She is always keeping her committments and really studying! She writes down the scriptures and studies them when she has time! Its awesome! And her husband works on a farm so everytime we go over there they load us up with Mangos and applebananas (bananas that taste like apples) avacodoes and all sorts of stuff!! We can barely carry it home! We keep telling them to not give us so much but they say they are going to throw it away! Anyway to say the least she is really doing good right now. Her husband and family don't really support her in her decision to investigate but she is still pulling through!>
My Companion is doing a lot better and we have a lot stronger relationship now!
We had a funeral in our ward this week and our ward really came together it was awesome! We had like 70 people in church! (alot) Also a less active came that said his daughter or someone lives in sandy and she came to puerto rico and they expected to see me but we visited this less active man like 3 days after they came and left. I think there last name was like Davi Or davis or something.
Its been a great week! I love it out here! I love learning more about the gospel and I love seeing it bless people! Make sure you all are having family night and praying together every day! Its awesome! And study the scriptures too, not just read them, study them ha ha Anyway you all know that just a quick reminder!
Yeah the Ipod is awesome! I love it! Those little speakers sure get loud. Sometimes I Blast AL GRAN PROFETA and many others!
Mom good work with the Primary program it sounds like a success and Dad it sounds like choir is coming along nicely without too much stress for now!
Does anyone ever get the chance to go out with the missionaries???? Its awesome!! Do it if you ever get the chance!
Thats awesome for BYU are they already in confrence play!?
Anyway I love you all and thanks so much for being examples in my life! I was blessed to be the youngest in the family and have everyones example to live by!! Thank you and have a great week!
Love Elder Knudsen
