I am doing great 🙂 I know Elder Litchfield, And he said he found some of his stuff after the fire, but did lose 3 of his journals, I think 😛 But that’s awesome that they recovered some of their stuff 🙂 Thats pretty miraculous! (An apartment complex in Greenwood, IN caught fire, and the missionaries living there lost everything EXCEPT fire cleanup crews were able to recover most of their journals, and their scriptures, so therein lies the miracle. Everything else was fire/smoke/water damaged, including all their clothing)
The only reason anything causes offense is if someone steps on your pride. Not to BE prideful, but serving a mission has gotten rid of (most of) mine 😉 So far so good.
SWEEEEEEET I love Amazon Prime boxes! I knew there was a reason that we decided to shop after emailing today 🙂 And I’ll keep an eye out for some more packages 🙂
The first week as DL was good! Nothing really too stressful happened 🙂 I got a letter from the Mission President, Elder Carlson, too 🙂 And I love Elder Hansen as a comp! He’s the best one I’ve had in a while 🙂 And we get along really, well so that’s always good 🙂 And the Samuelsons are AWESOME! They definitly take care of us very well 🙂 And little Tucker is awesome too. He’s so funny! XD
It sounds like David has a pretty epic trip ahead of him! I’m glad I got to drive to the MTC and just had a hop and a skip, and I was in Indiana! But I think it’ll be a really good way for him to start off 🙂 That’s a great idea about the blessings for his family, and I am grateful to have been able to do so for you and dad. 🙂 I love you all at home and pray for you daily, and being able to excersize the priesthood is one of the best ways to show respect and love for the blessings God has given us 🙂
The next week will be interesting for you indeed! How is it holding down the inflatable hover fort
by yourself? lol. And I’m sure it will be nice to have some time with dad 🙂 And bowling is always a blast 😉
So you got the starter plants for the garden instead of seeds, huh? I bet theyll grow good then! 😉 We’ve helped a bunch of people plant gardens in the last few months 🙂 And I loved talking to dad on Mother’s day as well! It was such a good thing for me. He said a lot of stuff i really needed to hear 🙂
And Yupp! Tucker’s family moved up to Tacoma 😦 They said we were welcome to visit whenever we want and that they were proud of what Jacob, Spencer, and I are doing 🙂
1. Well there were a few birthdays in the zone this week, so I made the Pancakes and Bacon cake this morning, so they don’t think everyone forgot their birthday – like what happened on my birthday!
And I got some Blackberries and cherries for the people who don’t eat cake or are vegan. 🙂 I like making people feel cared about 🙂
2. One habit that I’m thankful for is always trying to make people happy 🙂
3.WE met a lady named Mary! She was a cool old lady who we gave a card to like, 2 months ago in the street. We were knocking doors the other day, and we saw a Jesus card taped to a dash board and were like huh cool, and we knocked on the door and the person who answered was the lady from forever ago! It was AWESOME!
4. Well, I have WAY Too many favorite family stories, but heres one I found doing some Family History of a missionary ancestor 🙂 Elizabeth and Edward had been married sixteen years when they joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Edward was so filled with love for this new religion that he often preached on the street corners, and being quick tempered and a boxer, he sometimes had street fights, and since Edward enjoyed boxing, the fights made preaching very exciting for Edward. I Think I sent that to you before, but its a fun one 🙂 As far as family stories go, I love the time we went and did a bunch of the National parks and had a ton of fun everywhere we went 🙂 It was pretty sweet 🙂
I love you and hope you have a good week! I hope those pictures hold you over for the time being 🙂 Give Lander a pat!
