My dear friends and family, this week we celebrate the most transcendent of all events that has ever occurred in the course of human history. Without the events of this holy week, Christmas would be nothing more than a celebration of the Winter Solstice.
www.mormon.org/easter is a wonderful website this week! It has a short and powerful video about Easter, and if you scroll down you can read about the events that happened on each day of this week. I would definitely recommend it!
Elder Tillmann and I received our transfer call early this week! Elder Tillmann will be going to the Victoria 2nd ward on Victoria Island (literally the opposite end of the mission). I will be companions with Elder Yue. Elder Yue has been serving in Chinese work his entire mission, and in Salmon Arm he will begin his first English work. I may be able to pick up some more Mandarin! I've also been working with Elder Salazar and Elder Zamano in the district to pick up some more Spanish. British Columbia is extremely diverse!
Also, President Burt's father has recently passed away, but he is still working hard here in British Columbia so please keep him in your prayers!
