How’s school going for the kids?
Things this week have been kind of slow. We missed the musical fireside because our lesson went long, which was actually a really good thing. The lady we are teaching thinks one of her children might be mildly autistic. That’s not a bad thing all the time, they can still be pretty normal and happy. I tried to share with her. Things are going well, the weather has been cooling off, even though it’s still hot. Unusually hot is what everyone says.
We taught a few lessons this week. We passed Brenda off because she’s not in our area any more. Zack Jenkins is still progressing well. And is set with a date. His father-in-law has been less active, and their both coming along now. Things are going well here. A lot better than last week. We’ve just been busy!
I was sick 2 days this week, and it has been a bit slow. We had splits for 2 days as well, that was great. I went to the Doctor, because allergy season is coming up, I needed a new inhaler. It was annoying going to the Dr. because it was all the cash I had to pay the $25 copay and the $10 copay for the inhaler.
I’ve been learning hymns on the guitar and ukulele. The “Hymns Made Easy” are too easy, but the Hymn book is a bit too hard. I have been using the “Simplified Hymn Book” and it is fun. I have been borrowing it from another missionary. Please make a list and get it back to me soon of two favorite hymns of everyone in our family. I’d like to learn them and record them for Christmas. I’ve been working on our family song and I almost have it down. I’m still a bit slow, but that will probably be coming next week. Dad should be able to put my music on iTunes, I’m thinking about making a disc and sending it to you as an early Christmas present. But I need the list! Name: Song, Song Name: Song, Song I want the whole family in on it, ok?!
So Halloween was awesome. We got a couple of movies approved. We watched Toy Story3, 1,2,3 in that order. It was awesome. My companion is a huge fan of Toy Story, like his bed is even Toy Story. And when they announced what movies got approved I was in shock! He went ghost white and was super quiet, it was such a good night.
You asked what my favorite scripture was for one of those Missionary Plaques. You could tell them Ether 1:7, but you should just tell them Mosiah 2:41
And moreover, I would desire that ye should consider on the blessed and happy state of those that keep the commandments of God. For behold, they are blessed in all things, both temporal and spiritual; and if they hold out faithful to the end they are received into heaven, that thereby they may dwell with God in a state of never-ending happiness. O remember, remember that these things are true; for the Lord God hath spoken it.
I hope things are well at home.
Catch you later.
