that's sweet of jake to write you back. haha he told me about the note. we laughed about that every single time we saw that! we wrote in on new years eve. remember when we were at the house? and nobody ever noticed it hahah. so funny.
gabe got your letter too! he loved it!
yay!!! my afgan! no i want it waiting on my bed, never having been touched by human hands other than granny's, for when i get home :):):) hehe i'm so excited!!!!
thanks mom for all the packages and stuff. i appreciate all you do so so much! i'm not really sure what i want for christmas. i think i might send some of my extra tshirts and stuff home. i have too much stuff. i'll think about what i want ok? do you have any ideas?
as far as cory and megan goes, i'm not sure... i'll have to ask president nelson. i was hoping that they'd be in utah. oh well i'll ask and let you know what he says.
that is cool about alice smith. was he a nice guy? i hope so! lawrence is on a mission?????? what???? that is crazy!!! i am so happy for him! he's the coolest guy! if you see them again tell them how happy i am! i miss our ward. we have the best ward in the world. honestly! will you tell the creers hi for me and that i think about them all the time? they did so much for me. i love them! yes i did get a letter form sister mote. i'm going to try and write her back soon. it was really nice of her!
this last week was a crazy week. maria fuentes probably isn't getting baptized next week... bummer. she is having some problems with her husband i guess. she told him she's never going to his church again but now she's afraid to come to our church cause she doesn't want to make him mad. and she said she doesn't feel right with god or something. i was like, well that's exactly why you need to come to church!! haha. she just needs to put her trust in the lord and know that he'll bless and help her. we all need to trust in the lord more. he'll never put us through anything that isn't for our good. it made me think of dad not getting the job again. i think he's pretty discouraged. but i know that heavenly father has a plan. D&C 6:36. one of my favorite scriptures. this will make us stronger papa! we just have to put our trust in him. and know that he knows what is best!
we have been working really hard this week. i think i'm going to be getting a new companion next week. my 2nd transfer ends next sunday! i'll most likely stay in jamaica just get a new companion. elder parker has been pretty good. we've gotten along well. it's been hard sometimes but that's life! i'm nervous to get a new companion! haha i don't like having to get to know someone all over. but it's time for a change. i'll be better at providing more details about the next one :)
tell grandma and grandpa i've gotten their letters and stuff! i just need to find the time to write back. i love them so much! tell them that and ninny too!!! i love you so much. i'll be better next week with details ok?? i love you! have an amazing week! tell brad to email me back!!
