It’s sweet that Maddi got a hundred bucks! That’s sweet! And that’s sweet she gets to go to the beach! I miss the beach a lot cause the weather here is always perfect for swimming! Haha I’m definitely going to the beach when I get home! It’s cool that you got to visit with Ally. That’s awesome she’s sharing these experiences.
The house is gonna look way different when I got home! It sounds like it’s gonna be tight though!
Good to hear that you made everyone cry in relief society. It sounds like it was an amazing meeting. And hearing about all that good food that people brought makes my mouth water! Haha I’ve had banana bread once while I’ve been here, but pretty much all the desert foods here are way different.
I liked that quote. Especially the part about having an eternal perspective. Cause whenever we have an eternal view it makes life seem so simple and easy to just to do everything right all the time, but the hard part is to always remember to have this perspective. This is really hard for us because we are human and the world is full of distractions. Luckily we have the atonement of Christ to save us, and that is what we are trying to share with the whole world as members of the restored Church of Jesus Christ. Every week we have the opportunity to be redeemed again.
Everything is going good here. I wrote to dad about the work I’m doing right now so you’ll have to read that. Anyway I gotta go. I’ll pray for your health and I’m sure Trek this year is gonna be sweet! Just have faith and everything will work out.
That story was pretty funny! Haha the work was going kinda slow until this week. We got a man named José to come to church. We thought he was soft until he just showed up this Sunday. It was very exciting. We went to visit him last night and there was another man there in addition to the ten other people who are normally there. (they’re all family but I’m not sure how they’re all related exactly) but he started talking to us and we invited him to be baptized as well and talked a little about why you need the proper authority for baptism or else it is no good and he agreed and before we could even invite him to church he said he was gonna visit and he’s gonna bring pretty much everyone in the house with him haha it was awesome! We’re going there tonight to teach the first lesson to all of them and were gonna invite them all to be baptized. Also while we were talking to José one of his family friends came up and we talked to her and invited her to be baptized as well and were going this week to teach her. It’s very exciting! If all goes well, we will baptize about 10 people.
That’s sweet you got to visit all those people in Texas!
Serving a mission is one of the best decisions that you can make in your life. I can already see how it is going to benefit my future life. As it is with all other commandments and sacrifices that the lord asks of us, you really are getting a lot more than you give. I don’t know anyone who regrets being here.
I’ve been in the field for about a month now, and my language is really starting to come. I can understand, most of the time, everything people are saying. And I can teach people on the spot according to the questions they have. And people are starting to be able to understand me a lot better. It’s been a while since someone told me they don’t understand what I’m saying haha. But everyone still knows I’m an American, which isn’t bad cause about 90% of people here like to talk to Americans for some reason.
Maddi looks good at prom, I can’t believe she’s gonna be graduating in like a week or so! And henrys boy looks good! He starting to grow! It’s crazy that his gonna be able to talk when I return!
Anyway I gotta go. Love you. Keep praying and I’m sure everything will go well for Trek.
