So i just typed up a letter to send and some how deleted everything i typed with the click of two keys...sorry if this weeks letter is a little short.
Well hello family! Sounds like you are staying busy momma. I cant believe you swam either! It has been a long time since i have seen you or dad swim! Seems like you had a fun week! Hope all the dance recitals went well!
This week was a little crazy! We had elder walker come stay with us in our apartment for a few days because his old companion became a trainer and the new missionaries got here on wednesday but he doesn't go to his new area until monday (today) because unless you are a trainer you don't find out where you are going until the last sunday of the move call. Move calls are every 6 weeks. It turns out he was in the MTC with Robby! So cool! He showed me some pictures of them in the MTC, but they weren't quite as good as the one with the monkey ha that is a sweet picture.
This week we had a great lesson with Hai who is one of the brothers that got baptized this week! We talked about the foundation of faith. President Eyring gave a talk about this in conference. He said the start to building the foundation of our faith is personal integrity, consistantly choosing what is right. He also said if the foundation of faith is not embedded in our hearts, the power to endure will crumble. Making little right decisions everyday makes such a huge difference! I have definitely seen in my life, when i just focus on what i am doing right now and making the best of the moment, overtime the results are huge! Our faith grows through every day decisions.
It was kind of funny. We were at the chapel talking to sister Lee (who is actually Miranda Lee's sister! So crazy! She is in the area right next to mine but we share the same chapel.) about filling up the font and she says wait you guys have a baptism tomorrow? And we go yeah...and she says we have two baptisms tomorrow at 7 too! So it turns out we had a combined baptismal service with four people getting baptized! It was so great. Hai and Wu are very blessed to be getting baptized together. Now for the rest of their lives they will have a brother in the gospel going through the same experiences as the other. It has been amazing to watch these boys change their lives for the Lord. I am very grateful to have been a part of this proccess! It has been a wonderful blessing and experience for me to watch their faith grow, and it has strengthened my faith as well.
I hope all is well at home. Tell dad thank you for the camera cord! I will be sending some pictures along with this so watch out for them. I also got the package you sent me with the letters from everyone in it and the pedigree chart thanks mom! I love to hear how everyone is doing. I also love the pictures you send! That is a pretty sweet looking car celeste, i could see you driving that. Love you all and have a great week! Tell the relief society thanks for the letters they sent me, they are so great! I really appreciated that. The pictures will come in a few different emails. This one has ninja turtle pizza ones!
