so much to talk about. I'm glad gramps is good, I thought and prayed about him a lot and found peace in knowing that this is why we have the plan of salvation. even though he isn't going anywhere yet! I gained a stronger testimony about the plan of salvation.
but conference! oh my goodness! so good. I think that was the first time in my life I have sat and payed attention through all five sessions of conference but I learned so much. I really gained a new appreciation for the fact that we have a living breathing prophet on the earth! I mean how cool is that? I learned so much from this conference. I absolutely LOVED when I heard doubt your doubts before you doubt your faith. yeah. So much power in that sentence. umm so the baptism is this week... L**** asked me if I would be the one to baptize her, so I'm soooooo excited!
(I asked him what he wants for his birthday) I know 20 seems so old! I have been thinking about my birthday and really whatever you want to send me is great! I would like a black tie, and maybe a few other ties too hahah but for sure a black one. and then maybe another pair of those gap khakies? but in black if they have them. I just love the way they fit and they are so comfortable. but other than that send me whatever you want!!
It's been a good week here! our ward is so behind missionary work and we had the meanest fhe at one of our members houses last week. We had L**** and her husband there and a few more investigators! L**** and M**** and the best. they are taking elder pula and I into the city on thursday and taking us to a mexican resturant! I miss mexican food hahahah!
hey so talk to me about what is going on with our government! I heard that it might be a problem with us getting mail? (He hasn't gotten any mail in a few weeks)
I'm so excited for christmas so I can see everyone! pray that I will be in a good area with members that will let me skype! haha
