So! I`m a little short on time today, so I`ll be writing rather quickly!
OFF!!!! At last! Ruben and Rafael have received
permission to be baptized! They are set to go this Saturday! So wish
us luck! And thank you for your prayers!
Hm.... is there a next?
It seemed that was the big news item for the week.
So... I`ll go to your letters! Let`s see, question/Answer time!
First off, Congrats to Dad for still being a stalward missionary!
Looks like all may go well! And speaking of missionaries, a second
congrats to Ashlyne`s friend! He will be a mighty Elder in the field!
Which reminds me, the change ends in 2 weeks, and 60 new missionaries
are going to flood our mission! And 40 of them are gringos! So I just
bet I`ll be training again, but we`ll see. Elder Kingsford and I really
are hoping that they send 2 of them to our sector so that we can not
only stay together, but advance the work here! There is SO MUCH
And Tristen is getting so big! THREE ALREADY!! Now that`s just crazy!
speaking of crazy, dearest Logan Caldwell has transfigured from
Missionary to RM?! HOORAY!!! For serving the honorable 2 years! I will definitely be sending you a letter! Which, bytheyway, I send you guys a
letter to Transfer over to Mikayla Boren, I seem to have lost her
address! Should be there in a month.
Next, I don`t think I have a departure date. Usually the
missionaries here don`t get that until a month before they head home,
the missionaries here call it their `Trunky papers`. So, I`ll let you
know come May. And I haven`t gotten packages yet! I did get the
Christmas cards though! From the plowman`s, the sanders, and even Erik. I
hope they`re in this next week!
And as for other news, we have interviews with President Ghent on
Friday, and we need to bring some goals for the year 2013 with us, so
I`m coming prepared! I seems this year I want to work on daily
Repentance and forgiveness, for they are oh so necessary! I hope that I
can polish the quality found in
say unto you, can ye look up to God at that day with a pure heart and
clean hands? I say unto you, can you look up, having the aimage of God engraven upon your countenances?
Actually, on second thought, you
should just read the whole chapter,. It`s like a personal
self-inspection kind of chapter, like a self-evaluation sort of thing.
BUT IT*S WAY DIRECT!!! You`ll like it.
Well! I think that`s all for the week! I wish you all well, and hope you have a swell day!
QUENA, the magical musical wonder of Ecuador, a drawing I did for a 11
year old in the hospital that we visited, (his legs got ran over by a
car! He should be able to leave this next week! But we gave him a
blessing and he seems to be recovering very well) and my new journal.
