September 17th Letter


It is moves this week. Not sure that I will be moving though. Due to the fact that I willl most likely finish training good old Fingerle. I hope all is well in good old AF. You are so lucky to hear from an apostle! That is like my dream on my mission, for one to come and I get to shake his hand. I have never shaken an apostle's hand. Have you?

It has been nice and busy in Redhill. I am tired. Training and being a district leader has just worn me out, but the Lord is sure helping with that. I could not do this work without him.

How are things for you mom? your calling going okay? You have so much to do as a working mom, relief society president. At least you have one less kid to worry about. Oh, we had a blast at Eastbourn. Most of the zone came, it was really fun. Hopefully I can get time to send you some of the pictures. I wonder if I am changing. I can't wait to see what you guys think of me at the end of the two years.

I don't want to live in England, don't worry about that. I am much more open to living in New Zealand or some thing like that. How awesome would that be? Do you have any big plans this week? I can't beleive Eric is already getting married. Seems like he just got back from his mission.

I think that it is quite funny that you guys had the missionaries over. I don't know why. I just can't remember a time when we had them over when I was at home. That dinner sounds heavenly though. The food here is good, but it is just not the same as moms cooking. I also miss fast food in America, namely things like IN N OUT and JCW'S. those places are like little peices of heaven on earth. The closest thing you can get to that out here is Mcdonalds and it isn't even quite the same as it is in America. Oh Tyler, he is such a good kid. I am really glad to see that he is going on splits with the missionaries. It would be so much different to be on a mission in Utah. 
You need to tell me the story of uncle Jaime. I find your mission so interesting now. I can't wait to come home and talk about our missions. Eliane is doing great! She is officially getting baptised on Saturday! She is so prepared. I can't wait to see the difference the gospel will make in her life. Things are going great here. We met some solid families this week and I am really excited to meet them and hopefully help them work towards coming into the church.
You will school me when I get back. I am definitely in the worst shape of my life and it is only going to get worse.  That is a really cool dream. I need to get better at writing down spiritual impressions also. I think it is something that can be very special. Imagine looking back at our spiritual impressions in a coulple of years. It also shows the Lord that we hold the revelations he gives us very special.
My ankle is doing really well it is almost perfect but not quite there. I think I will just be one of the old guys that is always wearing an ankle brace. haha. I hope all is well with you. You are a the best dad that I could ever ask for. Take care of the family. I have been conteplating a lot on faith recently. We met this guy recently and had a long convesation about faith. I had him read Alma 32 and he has such an issue with the fact that "faith is a hope for things that are not seen, which are true."  It is something that brings happiness and peace. Faith dispels fear and doubt. It is the most important thing that we have on this earth.  Hold it close to you dad. We have a knowledge that can change the world, we need to share it.

This week was really nice. We kind of have to go to the drawing board in a sense. A lot of the investigators that we have are not really progressing so we need to figure out what we need to do to help them progress towards baptism. Also we are in the hunt for some new investigators, as we should always be. The baptism was great! Eliane loved it. I will send you some pictures. I have to be quick today because we are about to drive down to Eastbourne. You can look that up if you want. I have the AP's in my district so we are all going down together, which is nice, because they have a car! ha
I love you very much mom. Take care of the family. I think you have to be the best mother in the world and I mean that. I don't want to get sick while I am out here because I don't know how to take care of myself. love you. bye.
