1.) That would be way cool!! (If I could see London with S. Catron on 7 ½ hour layover). I am not sure if it is aloud. Could you ask permission for me? :) I might be a little bit nervous to ask :) And it might be better coming from you since you know all the details and things like that. That would be a lot of fun though. I would love to do that.
Could you send me my flight plans... I don’t know what they are or at least just write them in your next email?
I AM NOT SURE IF I GET HOME LATE AT NIGHT OR NOT BUT SOMEHTING THAT I HAVE WANTED TO DO SINCE ALONG TIME IS GO THROUGH THE TEMPLE ONE MORE TIME WITH MY FAMILY BEFORE I AM RELEASED AS A MISSIONAY. IF I GET HOME LATE AT NIGHT THEN I WAS THINKING WE COULD WAKE UP EARLY THE NEXT MORNING AND DO BAPTISMS AND CONFIRMATIONS WITH BEC AND PRES AND THEN THE REST OF THE FAMILY WE COULD DO SOME INITIATORY AND SEALINGS AND THEN DO AN ENDOWMENT SESSION! THAT IS WHAT I REALLY WANT TO DO AND THEN AFTERWARDS I COULD GO GET RELEASED. I don’t know if that is possible or not, but if it is I would love to do that!
2.) I started to do handstand pushups and curls, but I have not been as diligent with those as I was with pushups. I will probably start doing pushups again here in a couple weeks
3.) The baptisms went well. I am trying to send pics but it is not working.
4.) Just write one from all of us
5.) If Braden thinks I should toss it and there is nothing that will really help me then probably just toss it! Just make sure it is just MHS papers though and not something else that I might want or that is important... journals or special notes to myself or things like that... I want to keep those.
6.) I am not sure if they will come, but I would love to go even if they do not come.
7.) None (FS experiences) are coming to my mind right now. Eugenio is still doing good, he is sooooo prepared probably the most prepared person that I have taught on my mission!
So this week we had two baptisms, which was great! One man named Jacob who I was able to baptize and a girl named Eli who just turned 8!
I had a frustrating experience. So the baptismal service started at 3.00 PM and we were running late and we should up at 2.50ish and the only person that was there was Jacob, also I had yet to fill out some paper work. So I was rushing round trying to get things down. After a while people finally started to show up and Eli and her family showed up, but her dad who was baptizing her was not with them. I ended up calling him and he was at an "Obito" which is basically a party when someone dies, but it is not a funeral. It is kind of a joke in our mission because one of the number one excuses that people give us missionaries for not sitting with us is that they have an "Obito" He was already 20 minutes late to his daughters baptism and he was baptizing her and he told me that he would get to the baptism within 30 minutes! When he told me that I got kind of fired up and told him that he needs to leave and get here right now! He ended up showing up 30 minutes later and fortunately we all had enough patience to wait for him. Before he got dressed I apologized to him and then I felt like I should pray before I baptized someone and presided and directed a baptismal meeting so that the spirit could be there. I ended up going into my office and prayed. I prayed that the Lord would forgive me of my sins and that he would allow this frustration to leave/ help me to be calm (or something along those lines) so that I could feel the spirit so that the others especially those that were being baptized could feel the Spirit! While I was praying I felt really good and I felt the frustration leave me and the meeting went really well and I felt the spirit and us missionaries sang I like to look for rainbows which I have always wanted to do at a baptismal service and I felt like that really invited the spirit!
Love you Family!
I hope you have a great week!
That is awesome that you are sending a video to Shark Tank! Do you think you have any kind of real shot! That would be way cool! I am down to be your assistant coach! That is one thing I have decided that I really want to do is coach a travel team one day... So I am in (as long as it comes with a Ferrari of course:) JK
It is funny that you mention how time goes by so fast. I think it was just today or maybe yesterday that I remembered being in the parking lot while you and Mom were in the Restaurant right before I went into the MTC and I remembered the feelings I had before I entered the MTC and now it is about to all come to an end! really crazy!
Love you Pops!!
Keep up the great work!!
