My room mate at the Parceleus al Ronc was the dearest Indian woman, Rita Bassi. She has lived with Leukemia for 9 years with no medical treatments...she believes in this book called the CURE FOR ALL DISEASES....its all about doing liver cleanses. I could listen to her for hours as she told me about her life as an Indian woman, with 2 arranged marriages...arranged by using star charts to help the parents decide...oh my...oh my...SO MANY LIVES and WAYS OF LIVING!!! I feel like the Gods love me best. I am constantly in utter AWE at all that comes to me. Thank you. THANK YOU. T H A N K Y O U!!!!
Write me lovies...tell me all about the magic your lives are bringing you...and most importantly, that YOU are creating. Harrises love us some MAGIC!!! Excited for morning to hear from you Sam!
This is a PS...Saw this pic of Joshy's adorable girlfriend, Therese (on left) and thought you'd like to see her Sam...LOVE YOU ALL SO BIG!!!!!

Another weeek goone... whaaaaa
well, hey again! another solid week! I have basically no time to email this week, so I'm sorry about that ahead of time! this week we were able to see our progressing investigators quite a bit, and it's possible that we could have anywhere from 0 to 4 baptisms ! please pray for michael, anthea, alex, and ariel! We spent a lot of time doing service, which is great, but sometimes it takes too much time out of proselyting. I ate loads of chinese food, like 4 nights this week, Elder Pogue is doing great, my foot is healed, we found some new people, church was brilliant, I still love Loughborough!
that's about all I've got time for. haha I'm sorry! but please know that I'm happy. It's starting to hit me that there's an end to this mission thing, and I hate that! I can't imagine doing anything else. I feel like I've been doing this my whole life and whatever happened before my mission was just a dream! I know without a doubt that the book of mormon is true, and because of this knowledge, the hundreds of re promised blessings contained inside are also true. My favorite part of the gospel is the hope it brings. Incredible hope that is impossible to describe. I have felt it, and I hope you are feeling it! love you so much!
P.S. my chinese name is 谢顶龙
