Hey Mom and Dad!
The Library computers are still down so I have under 10 minutes to write my email this week.
This week we did have the meeting with Elder Kearon, President of the Europe Area. He is simply hilarious! I loved the spirit and determination that he brought with him. He talked a lot about “Being the message.” We are the bearers of the Lord’s sacred message to all the world. We must show that we are HAPPY, so that other people will want to be happy too! Our success depends on our obedience and our personal commitment with the Lord.
I received a letter from a family in our home ward who said the following about you guys:
“I have to tell you that I really appreciate the example your family sets. They are always at the service projects, any activities and always fulfill their callings well. They are dedicated to the gospel. You are blessed to have such a family and we are blessed to have your family in our ward.”
Thanks for being SOOOO AWESOME!!!! Keep it up!
This week was the 7th week of the transfer. We will find out about transfers tomorrow at 11:30am right after District Meeting, which is really annoying for us because we have to drive over an hour just to get to district meeting and so if one of us is getting transferred, it doesn’t make any sense to go all the way back home, pack up all our bags then pass through the same city once again. This means that we will probably have to pack our bags regardless, and put them in the car when we leave for district meeting. Tonight is going to be fun 🙂
Anyway, if there’s one thing that I want you guys to get from this letter it’s how grateful I am for your wonderful example as parents. You guys are incredible. Keep up the good work. I love you tons!
