Spirit Whispers Needed Words

Letter Received May 18, 2010:

Well hey,

How’s it going family? It is awesome to hear from you guys!  I have a surprise for you guys so you need to look at the photos, so I won’t tell you what the pictures are, so that you can find out when you look at them.  Let’s just say that it was awesome!

Yes I did get my package and it was awesome and my shoes fit well.  Did you guys put my hat in there? Because it wasn’t there, if you did put it in there.  As for boots, I don’t think that I need to buy boots because I am going to try those new shoes first, because they look like they should do the job, so we will see.   I do think that I need to get a jacket that is not quite so hefty, something that is not so long but is warm, something smaller and cheaper so I am going to look around and see but I think that if I find one, it will only be around thirty dollars because they aren’t really that expensive here.  I should be able to find one at like their WalMart here.  But, as for my birthday I don’t really know, I think that I will need to think of something I really need but as for the moment I need to think about it.  I am not worried about getting it before my birthday. That sounds good a small package and some money.  I think that would be best, I will let you know next week of some stuff that I can think of for a package.

 This week went really well, I really like this sector so much better.  This week we received some really good references and our ward has asked me to sing for them in conference so we'll see ha, ha.  This week we were teaching one of our investigators and his name is Gonzalo and he is 26 and he really accepts everything that we teach. He really loves soccer and he likes to party so he needs to stop drinking with his buddies and he only smokes like three cigarettes a day so he is quitting.  We were teaching him and he had a lot of questions and I was teaching and underneath my shirt I was just shaking, like shivering, because I was feeling the Spirit so strong, and it was so crazy because the Spirit filled my mouth with the words because I had the answers to all his questions.  I never thought that I would have all the answers, but I did because I was blessed.  It was like a duck on the pond, on the surface I was calm as a summer’s day but underneath I was going a million miles an hour.  It was awesome! He came to church this week.  Something told me while we were in the lesson, something said, I am going to baptize you.  So, I know that he is going to get baptized.

We had some awesome lessons this week and some other stuff happen. You will have to look at the pictures.  It sounds like you all are doing really well and are all having good times and staying busy.  Dad
that is crazy that Casey asked you if I was still riding ha ha, it is weird to think that some people don’t know about the fact that I’m here.  He probably recognized the fact that their number one customer for parts isn’t there anymore, because I break everything ha ha.  But, glad to hear that it is getting really warm there and I wish that it was warm like that here.  Good to hear that everything is going good there.  It sounds like everyone is staying busy.  What is a Rosetta Stone?  That is cool that Dad is learning Spanish, so I will have
someone to talk with when I get back ha ha.  I will let you know about the birthday stuff next week.  I love and miss you all a ton, it was so good to talk to all of  you  last week.
