Greco-Roman District

Wo de jiating!!!!

Guys, guys, GUYZZZ!! What am I doing here? Why am I learning Mandarin? Why am I learning so many Disney songs in French?!?!?! I'll tell you why, because I am meant to preach the gospel to all the world. People are out there and they do not know that they have a loving Heavenly Father and a Savior and they can pray to every day. Alma 5:7, they are in a mist of darkness and they know not where to find the light. And for some crazy reason I was lucky enough to be born in the Church and learn about it. I need to get them to Alma 5:13, I NEED TO!!

I don’t know why I started the letter right off with this, maybe it’s because I kind of lost track of that whole concept this week. And when I lose track of this big picture, that’s when I slip into bummer mode. BUT I WON’T! Like they taught me on Heritage Tours (remember, remember) remember the Saviors love for me, remember the sacrifice, remember the blessings, every second of every day, I must remember these things. 

Hey guys, Sister L. Burr left for Nashville, you guys should forward me her emails or something. I want to try to do host pick-up this week because Hayden is coming into the MTC. Hopefully he comes into the main campus and not the west campus.

Guys, French people are crazy, I’m pretty sure one of the frenchies in my room does not believe in the Holocaust, he says he can back it up with scriptures about the gadianton robbers. They sucked me into doing their ab exercise that they do every night. This would be a normal thing, if the ab exercise was a normal AMERICAN exercise. But it’s NOT, its European so it involves them just punching each other in the abs for like 3 minutes. So guys, imma be rippped when I get out of this Empty Sea....but my kidneys will also be permanently damaged. hmmmm Be soft and have a functioning body.....or rock solid and pee blood. It’s a hard call. They are also way into Roman Greco wrestling. We don’t have any sisters in our District so the testosterone levels are at DEF CON 4. 

Thank you all so much for the letters. I guess I never responded to Tori for her email either, it was so awesome and it is so cool you got to see Elder Holland. He is amazing, (even though he makes me feel like a crappy missionary every time I read his talks) but hey! That’s what these kinds of tests are for! My companion is very thankful for the shoes, even if he has not matured enough to properly express his emotions yet. He is very grateful. Man, I really think a huge gap of development is between 18 and 19, but it’s all good. Because the age change was fulfilling prophesy and that’s sweet! That’s like Revelations business with dragons and stuff.

That is so cool that Rebecca is the taxi driver now! I bet she is the safest driver ever. No speeding, rolling stop signs, doughnuts, underground street racing for pink slips [dad ; ) you get that one??] 

I want to be like Rebecca, I want to not just be obedient, I want to be righteous, because I know God is looking for every little excuse to bless my life and only through loving his commandments and pure righteousness will I be blesses. I find myself reading 2 Nephi 4 a lot. Especially verse 17. I am so mad at myself that I did not see the bigger picture that the Lord WANTED to bless my life so much more than I allowed him. Oh, what wretched man am I. But I love Chapter 4 because it all turns around in verse 19. I know who i have trusted in, Wo de Jiezhu, Yesu Jidu ( My savior, Jesus Christ) 

I love you all, thank you for your prayers and support and for teaching me all the things you did and believing in me.
