yoyoyoyoyo!!!!!!!!! I am so glad to hear from you!!!! Mom, I got your letter yesterday which gave me a big pick me up!!!!! I was so excited!!!! Things are going great here. I started reading the Book of Mormon cover to cover on august 2, and I am almost to Jacob!!!! This book is so true. In our lesson I try to use it only, because it truly is the one true evidence we have that our message is true!!!! I love playing soccer here. My district loves to play with me because I always volunteer to be goalie. It's fun to just hang back and block all of the shots by the sisters, haha. I have realized that you don't always have to be in the front to have a good time... just chillin and helping others succeed is much more satisfying. Spanish is getting easier. Next week is all Spanish for us!!!! I cant believe I only have like a week and a half. It's flying by. I'm glad to hear Allie is safe at the Creek. She already is one of the best counselors I have seen there. About the whole package thing... moms have been Amazoning packages to their sons while they have been out, but I don't want you to. I have finally had my heart changed. This is not my mission. I am not teaching these people. I am not giving my time to the Lord, it's all his, its HIS mission, HE is teaching these wonderful people, the time has always been HIS. Nephi is the best example of this... he says,"O Lord, I have trusted in thee, and i will trust in thee forever. I will not put my trust in the arm of the flesh;" I love you all so much.... i know that i couldn't do this without you.... please help the missionaries in our area!!!! love you!!!!
These pictures were taken by some of our teachers at the MTC.
I LOVE these pictures!
You look great! The park looks beautiful! Are these real people or people set at the park for you to mingle with?
