It's so hard to believe that Elder Sean McEwan has been on his mission for 6 MONTHS (Bump Day), since entering the MTC on January 9, 2013!Hey Hey Hey!! I'm so sorry that I haven't written you guys in a long time, things have just been really really crazy here. But I'm so glad that you are all doing well and keeping busy. Since my last email, I have had two baptisms, a 14 year old boy named David and a 10 year old girl named Bianna. Also, I don't know if I've told you guys about Rimanni, another of my recent converts. He comes teaching with us every day and comes to church every week, only missing one Sunday last month. Everyone is doing well here, and it's so satisfying to see all of my hard work and see everyone doing great.
Dad, Happy Birthday to you!! Don't know how they say it in Chuukese, but just wanted you to know that I was still thinking about you even though I didn't send a letter. Garrett, pwan en. Happy Birthday, pwipwi!!! Man, my sixth month mark in Chuuk falls right on the day that you start your mission. Any advice I have, I say remember to love the heck out of the people in the Dominican Republic. You love them, get to know them, let them get to know you, and that's what is going to make your mission worthwhile. Don't be afraid, even though that sounds pretty lame coming from me right now. I've been praying for you everyday, because trust me, I know the pressure that Satan is going to put you under in the next few days and weeks leading up to August 1. Never forget that you are not only my brother, you are my best friend and soon to be my brother in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Study from Preach My Gospel and the scriptures (in Spanish) and practice teaching to people. They say not to leave your mission with any regrets, I say don't start it with any. Don't get to your six month mark and wish that you would've taken more time to teach and practice. We as the missionaries seni Ewe Mwichifelil Jises Kraist ren Aramas mi pin non Fansoun Soponon are given a small amount of time to prepare to serve and teach. DO NOT WASTE IT!!!! Our Father in Heaven wants His missionaries to be prepared, in all aspects, to teach and preach and work as missionaries do. Never forget that you are the man, but also remember that you work in the name of the Son of Man. Remember when you put that badge on, you are a representative of Jesus Christ, and as such are entitled to His help and guidance in your life. I pray for you and for all of you everyday, and I'm so excited to hear of all the blessings you have all received.
Oh, one more thing. Do you guys think you could buy me an English to Chuukese dictionary and send it to me please? That way I can be learning more new words :)
Ai tong ngenikemi!!!
