Yesterday we heard from Elder Evans from the 1st presidency of the seventy, or maybe it was just from the 1st quorum of the seventy... but he taught a really awesome lesson about having faith in the Lord and in using the BoM the way it was meant to be used in teaching investigators and how we need to trust the spirit to witness to them as they read in between appointments, and that if we look in the first couple of pages of the BoM in 1st Nephi we can find the doctrines we are teaching to our investigators! It rang true to me because it reminded me of my Patriarchal blessing and how it prompted me to focus my studies on the BoM and how it was meant for our day, and yes I did get my package, and I loved it, didn't get Matthew's letter though... I'll be getting a letter to you soon too.

Leah will love coming here, she'll probably be outnumbered 10 to 1 missionary-wise... but she'll love it here. They have good food here and I try my best to refrain from eating too much.

I can't think of what else that I would like to say except that I've seen lots of friends from my BYU dorm days! It's great to be able to see and talk with them again, but I gotta go bye!

  1. I'm glad that he's loving it! I'm going over to visit some old coworkers this next week for lunch so I'll find his classroom and stop by. Let me know if there is anything that you can think of that he needs.
