October 6, 2014

  So I'm staying in Hermiston again, gonna finish Elder Woodheads training.  I'm happy I getta stay here again.  I didn't want to leave yet!  I got the package, thank you for that! 
   Conference was awesome huh?  I got chastised hard core and got called to repentance by a few of the speakers, but that's what conference is about right?  Learning what we need to change in our life to become more like Christ.  Jorg Klenbingat was one of my favorite speakers I think he chastised me the most haha.  He was a kids mission president in my ward here that just got home a couple of months ago.  I feel like his talk is what missionaries needed to hear.  This conference got me kinda trunky they were all talking about life and getting educations and families and stuff.  But there were alot of things said in there to help me stay focused.  Here's my list:

1.  Stop makin' excuses why I can't be exactly obedient.
2.  Take responsibility for my physical well-being.
3.  Embrace obedience and make the gospel my whole life.
4  Being better at repenting quickly and thoroughly.
5.  Become really good at forgiving.
6.  Accept trials and set backs as part of life.
Mainly just takin' responsibility and rising to my call and stepping up and being a better example.

   We had a good lesson with Chad Morris. Helped him see that he is receiving his answer little by little and that it will come as he keeps living the commandments and reading and praying. We invited him to pray specifically to know if he should be baptized! So we will see how that went on Friday.
    What do you guys got going for October break?  Luckies get a week off!  Don't party to hard!
Can you send me some updated pictures of Maddie?  Letta told me how she tapped the microphone twice to see if it worked before she talked.  I thought that was hilarious!  
(Maddie did her part in the Primary Program.  I had forgotten to plug in her communication device the night before, so the speaker on it was very quiet.  She did so good though.  She walked up to the pulpit, tapped the microphone a couple times, said, "eeee....eeee" tapped it again and then her teacher said her part, "Jesus loves me" because the device was too quiet.  Then she hurried back down to her spot.  Her teacher had bribed her with a "My Little Pony" toy and told her she could have it if she sat nice and after her part.  It was pretty good!  :-) )

Well thanks for all you guys do! Love you family and friends(framily)

P.S.  Bub says to keep the hand written letters coming.  They really help a lot.
