DATED: November 24, 2014

Howdy Howdy. I am short on time and don’t have much to share. I am excited for Thanksgiving. There is so much that I am grateful for. Maybe I’ll just make a list of gratitude.

I am grateful for my Mom, Dad, Brother and Sister. They have always been there for me and have helped me though my various trials in life. They have been a strength and a refuge for me. I love them so very much and I am grateful for the Temple, and for Covenants, and for the Priesthood, which makes it so that I can be with these wonderful people forever.

I am grateful for my extended family also. All of my Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, Grandparents. I am so blessed to have all of you in my life. You have been an example to me. Together we have experienced so many fun fun times. We have enjoyed dinners, vacations, moving parties and much more together. It's been great.

I am grateful for all of my wonderful friends. They have been there for me also. They have been there to help me make good choices, and to help me become a better person. They have helped me learn how to communicate with people and get a long with others. We too have had much fun together, playing games, pool, going to different activities, and studying the gospel together.

I am grateful for my Ward family. All of my Bishops, Young Men's leaders, Quorum Advisers, and just all the friends I have in my Ward. We have done so many fun things from camp outs, hikes, scouts, and service projects.

I am also VERY VERY grateful for The Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ. I am grateful for living in a day with the Fullness of the Gospel. I am grateful for my Savior, Jesus Christ, who bled, was judged, was whipped, who was spit upon, and who died for ME. I am so grateful that I get to be a missionary who can go out and tell people about HIM. I am so grateful for the many people who I have met, who have taken time to listen, and who have acted on the invitations they have received from Jesus Christ.

I just want everyone to know that the gospel of Jesus Christ, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is TRUE. IT's the truth. I know it! The Commandments, if kept lead to happiness. I am so grateful for the opportunity my heavenly Father has given me to come to the earth, receive a body, and experience mortality. WHAT AN AWESOME PLAN! I love you all. Keep up the great work!
