Family, Friends and yeah i don't think anybody else reads this haha!

So im not gonna lie this week was another really tough one in the mission. So many of you know that my grandpa passed away this week and when i got the call from the mission president it was really really tough but i am so so grateful for the Plan of Salvation and know that i will see him again one day and that gives me peace. Also one of our investigators Miguel told us that he doesn't want to join the church because he really likes his that he is attending right now, he said that he liked it when we came and talked with him but that he doesn't want to right now but in the future he said he might. It is super sad because his bro is a recent convert and will be leaving on a mission soon and dang we really thought things were going well with him. But ya know its not his time and i know gods will is perfect and that everything happens for a reason. However on a happy note the Hna. Demetria returned from the hospital and is now in her house recovering we are going to visit her during the week and hopefully all can be well with her. To be honest this week was kind of a slow week and not a ton happened but we do have a couple investigators that are progressing and i think we are gonna have some success soon we just gotta keep working. Sorry for you people that read this for the crazy things that happen to me but sadly nothing crazy happened to me this week haha jk. Anyways i love you all and have a great week.

Love your Elder

We asked Cameron to write down a few thoughts and feelings he had about his Grandpa so that we could share those at the funeral.  Here is what he wrote.......

Dear Family,

So when i recieved the call from president on friday and he told me that grandpa passed away i couldn't believe it. And at first i was really sad and was just thinking about everything that has happened in the last month in my mission with my uncle rob passing away and now my grandpa gubler as well and i started to get a little angry because i couldnt understand why all of this was happening and why god would allow this to happen. But really what has helped me cope with all of this is the gospel and knowing that this life isn't the end and like it says in Alma 34 this life is a time for men to prepare to meet their god and to perform their works. I know that grandpa gubler was and is a great man. I will never forget the times when we would go to the farm and haul hay and pick up branches and also the times when we would go to beaver and we would get to work with him there. Even though in those times me chase and koby always complained that we had to do a bunch of work while everybody else got to chill. Now i am so grateful for those times, it truly taught me how to work hard and has been a huge blessing for me out here on the mission. Ican honestly say that I know that this life is not the end and that gods will and plan is perfect and even though it is sad, this was grandpas time and i know that he is doing great things on the other side of the vale and that one day we will see him again and be an eternal family. I love all of you and know that gospel is true and can help us with any trial we have in our lives.
Con Amor
Elder Imlay o Cam
