So first off, thanks for all the birthday wishes. That huge card was awesome! Thanks to everyone who signed it. I love all the stuff you all sent me. The coconut pie is good too. Thanks for sending us stuff to make that. So on my birthday, we did a lot of tracting, but we were able to talk to a lot of people so it was fun. We then went to a members home for dinner and he gave me an ice cream cone with a candle in it. That was pretty awesome. On Sunday, we went to the Covingintons for dinner, and they gave me a Twinkie coated in frosting. I’ll send a picture. It was a great birthday. I'd say one of my favorites. I don't know why, but every birthday is the best birthday.
O, I ate four slaw dogs. O man, those things are just so good!
We were able to teach a few of our investigators. None of them are progressing though. They aren't keeping their commitments and it has been really difficult for them to come to church, because they all think they need to go to their church so they are all busy on Sundays. We are trying to find the Elect, they are out there somewhere.
I am glad to still be in Gretna, I think this is going to be a great transfer, well I am going to make it that way. The Church is TRUE, the Book of Mormon is the word of God. Everything points us to Jesus Christ, and he is the way. We will all be together in Heaven someday with our Father and Jesus Christ. Our joy will be full, and we will be with all those whom we love. Lets all stay on the path back to our Father in Heaven, and follow his son Jesus Christ who He sent to show us the way. I know that this is all true. All of my joy has come from the Gospel, and there are so many amazing people I know that are examples of righteous disciples of Jesus Christ. That is one of the greatest blessings God has given me. He has put amazing people, I consider them angels, in my path, in my life, and what a blessing that has been. In turn, I want to be a blessing to everyone that God puts me in the path of. I love this Gospel, I love this church, and I love Jesus Christ. The last 20 years have been the best years of my life! I look forward to the next 20. Lets live the GOSPEL!
Hope you all have a great week! Thanks again for all the Birthday Stuff.
