Week #94: Extra from Elder Asa Laws Blog....

{Kind words from Elder Asa Laws serving in the Brazil Manaus Mission...from his blog....}

We met our new mission President on Monday, the 4th! He is so cool. President Moroni Klein! He is from Porto Alegre, the south of Brazil, and he has a wonderful family. He is just so excited and he has a TON of energy. I instantly liked him from the moment I saw him.  ... He is a history major and he knows a ton. Everything relates back to the gospel. ... he let us sing the Star Spangled Banner as the closing hymn!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I got to conduct and Elder Tenney held up his giant American Flag. It was AMAZING!!!!!!! I LOVED IT! Everyone here knows I was in the ROTC and they all know I am really patriotic.

Speaking of Tenney, he said he is going to give me the flag when he leaves to pass it on to another loyal American. We talk alot on p-day and meetings. He is a way cool guy. Today he said "dang, why does this have to be my last transfer! We would have been great companions!" He is a cool guy and he is a good example of a hard working missionary.
