Dear Family and Friends,
its sounds like all you guys had a blast at cedar and courtneys wedding and in idaho. haha, cedar has one classy suit. I'll oneup him when i get home. speaking of suits, i can get a really nice one for about the equivent of 100-120 bucks? yeah, sweet. and cash would be nice. im actually gonna go shopping today. they have some cool stuff here.
Its crazy to think i have a new sister in law that i dont even know!!! our family just gets bigger and bigger. next thing you know ill be home getting hitched too! I have to say the mission is going by scary fast. like im terrified. this is week two of transfer two right now and it feel like i got here last week. its crazy.
just this weekend we had stake conference (i dunno why we had it so close to conference) so ive seen like maybe a dozen members of the ward in the past two weeks. but stake conference was great. Elder erickson and i even sang in the chior. we sang ''savior redeemer of my soul'' it might just be my new favorite song ever.
the talks were great too. our stake president is amazing. his name is mark gilmoor and i could see him becoming a general authority in his lifetime. hes only like 30 right now. but the conference was all about rejoicing and sharing the gospel cuz that makes us rejoice!! President millar even got to talk. he talked about jacob chapter 5. yes, i know its super long but its is probably one of the most important scriptures of my mission. as you know, the allagory talks of the lords vineyard and of an olive tree. since the beginning of time, the lords servants have always asked for more time. but its not until the last time they work in the vineyard does the lord call for more servants. starting in about verse 65ish? but these days that we live in are that time jacob is talking about! like president monson said ''now is the time for members and missionarys to come together, to work together to bring souls unto him'' and along with that, guess whos working with us??? i beleive it is v. 75? but the Lord is!!! the lord is working with his servants, though they be few, there are more than ever. now is the time.
i get all excited about this kind of stuff now. aaaallll the time.
but keep up the good work at home. my comp said this awhile ago: ''baptisms will come when members help out. Baptisms might come if they dont.'' i dont know about you guys but i like will. not might.
anyway, i love all your letters and you will be all getting a sentimental hand written letter for christmas and maybe some cool british stuff.
stay classy and keep going.
