So tell me, why did the guy think Moroni was an alien…because he is gold-haha! That makes for an interesting religious mix, buddahis, jewish and protestan?

Awesome you will have lots of people to celebrate with!!! So is her daughter planning on getting baptized in November? We got to attend the ysa ward with dad yesterday and I was so impressed by the strong testimonies of the young adults there and their willingness to participate in the lessons….I am excited for dad and his new opportunities…we are going to a bbq tonight at the college chapel for all the new kids that come to school for the fall. Dads ward is strictly kids in housing for school so lots of different people, mostly girls, Jordan and jax came too and both agreed Jordan needs to visit more and maybe find some dates there 😊 any ways should be a fun fhe…jax would like to attend the ward on Sundays when they have linger longer food-haha! That kid always eating! But like you still trim.
What are you doing for fhe?
yes she is really excited actaully and wants to get baptized!! and thats awesome good for them!! i hope that its gonna be a good blessing for dad and for jordan as well!! haha tonight we don't have a FHE...
Guys just got home from work and say hi and happy bday week! They have been digging a basement all day, it kinda warmed up today to about 88, I love it not ready for fall yet-do you still have power and water on? Any more headaches? What did you prepare for devotional?
tell them thanks! and yes we had water and power all week and all good with headaches.. no worries.. :) we just ahd to get some elders and sisters to help out witht the prayer and objective and sec 4 of DC..
Any service opportunities last week, I know that you were super busy teaching…and that is a great service in and of itself!
to be honest not really..... sadly.. but nooo..
Not sadly, it is great that you have been busy teaching and preaching the gospel! This week I am trying to prepare my lesson for relief society on Sunday and I thought since the kids went back to school I would talk about Education and continuing to learn and grow your brain. This part makes me smile every time I read it….I know it’s a little long but its awesome…One of the basic teachings of the Church is that the knowledge we gain in this life will be a blessing to us now and in life after death: “If a person gains more knowledge and intelligence in this life through his diligence and obedience than another, he will have so much the advantage in the world to come” ().
Learning is necessary for progress in any phase of our lives. Continued learning is an important part of the gospel. To live the gospel we must learn its truths. Consequently, the prophets have instructed us to study the scriptures regularly. Elder William J. Critchlow Jr. told of giving special instructions to home teachers about motivating those they visited to read the scriptures:
“—In many homes there was a lot of searching and dusting off before the books were available.
“—Young people who had been married a short time were generally without the books unless the husband was a returned missionary.
wow!!! thats awesome!!! haha good for you!! !thats gonna be great!! hey how is maddy doing with her foot?? maddy b
I asked about her Saturday and Lanni said it is still bothering her, they didn’t get it all and want to go in deeper and freeze it out, but I think that they are hoping she can wait till she gets home (6 months) and take care of it then, the doc doing it is a dermatologist and I think that she made need a different kind of doc and some American help….I know that she has been a little discouraged about that and her comp right now is a really hard one and so their numbers are down and her dl, I think, got on her case about the whole thing and meeting number goals, Jordan said that she was going to write her and try and encourage her and I am sure that she would love to hear from you as well, do you have her email address? You could even write her in Spanish…cant believe she is down to 6 months, her year went fast, but it always does for others, but if it my elder seems to drag 😊 not so much any more!! Yea!!! Some one asked me if you are anxious to come home or would like to stay longer? What would you say?
yes i got her email... ill shoot her a email!! and i feel like i have mixed feelings... i wanna get home and start my life and play ball again and stuff.. but then theres others days where i feel like.... NOOOOOO i wanna keep going.. ha
You are awesome thank you! I think that it has to be hared to leave the people you are serving and to be released from preaching the gospel 24/7, fortunately you can always be a missionary….I wish that I could be as brave as you are to share the gospel and feel that blessing! I am so thank ful that you have taken to time to serve the Lord and you will be very blessed for leaving the things of the world behind for two short years when compared to the rest of your life to do “stuff” I am proud of you!!
