Dear Mom...I mean Dad...I mean family...I mean....Sunkist? ;)
How have you all been?? I´m sure you had an incredibly wonderful trip to Nauvoo! Thanks for all emailing me! And at the same time! First of all, I want to wish a HAPPY BIRTHDAY TOMORROW, MOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 46 years of bliss, no? I just love you so much, Mom, and want to thank you for all your love and support you´ve given to me. I can´t tell you how much I miss you and how grateful I am for all you taught me. I would be nothing without you. Literally. And in every meaning of that sentence.
Random thoughts of the week: have fun at Old Home Day this Saturday! Sure miss that day! We heard The Sign by Ace of Base on the bus the other day. I love telling people I¨m from NH because no one can ever say it! "New Jersey?" "No, New Hampshire." Dad, I got your postcards from the Hill CUmorah Pageant! Thanks! I read this week 3 Nephi 7:8 and thought of you. Also, I laughed this week because I read 3 Nephi 8:19 and it´s like someone was reading over Mormon´s shoulder when he was writing and said, "No, it was more than 3 hours!" And Mormon was like, "Ok fine, to some it seemed longer than 3 hours, but it was basically 3 hours, alright?" I love the scriptures. Also, I never used my passport holder. The office keeps your passport and gives you a copy, so I´d say keep the money.
This week we had a baptism for an investigador de oro. His girlfriend is a member and he was so ready to accept the gospel. I know God ahs people prepared to hear the gospel and we just have to find them. If we are obedient they´ll come to us! I know this to be true! I love this gospel and I love the church. It is organized by God himself! Joseph Smith was a prophet!
As members, remember you have to help out in the work! Go to ch 9 of PMG and read the IMportance of Members. Your job is to offer your home, give a sincere testimony, answer questions, and be a friend! help the missionaries!
This week was a party for the Virgen del Cisne. So much fun for missionaries. Not much success, but we´ll keep working.
Sorry this email is the randomest, lamest, and most scatter brained ever, but I love you and the church is true!!!!!!!!
P.S. Homemade Dumbells!
