MTC Week 4

 Provo Temple
 Missionary Models
 The "Brit"
My new Best Friend for Eternity 

   Well I've been told I need to put more details in my emails. So I guess I will. I'm really excited to get to the field (Indonesia). I've had some really great experiences teaching. I'm very good at testifying. Like we were about to teach this guy named Pak Rik. He and his wife have split up, and they had a child together and he misses him. For some reason me and my companion changed our whole lesson and changed it to be about how heavenly father makes weak things strong. Either 12 is pretty much the greatest chapter of the Book of Mormon. I have never been so happy in my life. 
   I get to help people know that through the Holy Ghost the Atonement of Jesus Christ isnt just for sin, but comfort and love. We never need to forget the atonement is for not just sin but all things that cause us pain. Through the atonement we can feel the Savior's love. Which is amazing. 
   Then in anopther lesson this lady Hastu was having trouble getting aswers to her prayers. I then asked do you know God loves you. she said Idk. I looked her and with the most sincere heart in the world I said I know I know he does and I know he wants you to keep talking to him. Don't lose your faith in Christ I know he loves you too. I think I almost made her cry but thats not the point. I know she felt the spirit and she knew I was telling the truth. 
   I love this and I love doing it in another language. I'm going to be the best missionary ever lol jk. I'm not that good but this work makes me so happy I want nothing more in my life then this. I got two packages this week. one from Paula and Rodge. It was full of peanut butter stuff. I guess they talk to one of y'all  because you know and I know I love peanut butter. Guess what the Indos love it too. I cover so much stuff in peanut sauce it's so good with this not so good MTC food. I know  it will never compare to Indo.
    This week we got two new missionaries and lost one. This young man  going to Madagascar left. He just didn't want to be here. We all were very sad I don't think the new missionaries even know. He was such a good young man. He just couldn't make it through the trial. It made me sad but made me want to love my brethen more and strengrthen them. I cheered them up and we are doing very well maybe even better. The lord takes care of the ones who follow him and do there best its not about being perfect.
   I haven't wrote MeMe for her birthday.I feel bad. I hope you are talking to her about me. I do love her so much and her very good example. Eery time I go to the temple I think of her and how happy she was when she was there with me. I love the temple. Today was the last day I'll be there for two years. Very sad I don't know how I will survive without it. what a blessing it is. Nothing is more beautiful and wonderful and spiritiual then the house of the lord. Oh and the new sister we got Tuesday is from Denmark I think she is kinda hot but she is going to Greece .Don't worry I'll be fine. lol.
    I miss my friends so much especially TJ, Seth, and the Wards. Being away from home is so hard,but there is nothing more important then this work. Collette I want you to tell all my friends my email and if they have any questions or need any help I can help  them. I will answers their questions. Mom you better tell the Wards they better write me back asap. I already wrote the letter for the youth. It's pretty good penmanship I think lol. 
   Oh the language is going good. I'm learning so much so fast lol. I know I say the same things so much but its so true. I'm going to send some more pics today. I'm really happy. I don't think my mission will be to hard if I just stay positive and keep my faith. I'm pretty strong willed. Oh mom and dad thanks for the package today it was great. I've already ate most of it lol.  I love everyone.

Well so i was in the new west campus the first 6 days and now im at the main campus. my new address is Elder jared Moses Haws Dec 02 Indo-jak 2005 N 900E unit#303 Provo Ut 84602.  Tell meme im sorry that she couldnt send the pie its the thought that counts. ive really grow to love her and her example it means alot to have a grandparent of the fold. Today is really nice and relaxed i got all my luandry done but i havent folded them but i will i promise. the language is hard but i Coba(Try). i thinks that my best ability so far ive found out how to put my heart, soul ,love, might, strength and faith when i teach. im doing really well. my testimony in the lord has grown so much it means alot to know he is there for me. i just am giving it my all. because of that im really tired. im sleeping good and getting up and being example to my district about be obedient thats all i want to be. im changing and i like it.i have two companions and they are Elder kehl and Mangum. i really like them most of the time. The food is killing my stomach. i feel awful all the time. im trying to get some pictures on here but it wont work ill get them to you next week i promise. Dont worry i will come how with honor. Collette i need some warm colthes i just got a feeling its going to be cold. idk how im going to get them back to you but i will. the MTC is going pretty well i think i meshing pretty well. everyone in my branch is foregin and i love it. i really like the brits. they are really nice guys and guls. its good to see other people feel the same as me. oh talking about the temple i did someone relatives in my branch from france that was cool. a very sweet spirit.

Letter from Elder Haws written Oct. 30th
First thing is everything is great. I'm so happy right now. How is McCoy? I miss you all a lot, but not really at the same time. The food is awful here and my stomach feels awful, but I will make it. The language is hard but fun. Southern into Indonesia is hard. I am learning a lot very fast. Well I'm going to bed.
With Love, 
Elder Haws

 i got to go to the temple earlier kinda bitter sweet only three more times for the next two years. i have really grown to enjoy the temple so much and everything is making more sense everytime i go. or maybe im just paying more attention. i love it. the pics and video were awesome. im growing very close to the lord and everyone tells me i have a very strong spirit when i teach. i cant say much but i sure can tesitify. i really follow the spirit and i know that it will help me. our teachers tell us we are ahead of any other group that they have taught. they tell us the mission is fun but hard. u sweat a lot and some places are very different. but we are meant to go there. the food is good but hard on the body at first. everyone gets sick but idk. I'm doing pretty well and can't wait to get there. we are playing a lot of basketball. we workout 5 days a week. we end up just joking around and having fun.
my favorite scripture is mosiah 2:17 (And behold, I tell you these things that ye may learn wisdom; that ye may learn that when ye are in the service of your fellow beings ye are only in the service of your God).others serves god.always will be. but ive really enjoyed reading the book of mormon i started a week or so ago and im almost to mosiah.
