This last week was a really normal week of work, it was a good week just nothing special happened. One thing that Elder Rodrigues and I did was that we made a game plan for our second change together. Our end goal is to be really diligent. We used the definition of diligent from the scriptures and from Preach My Gospel. We then defined the different words that describe diligence. Next, we put goals for how we are going to work with more diligence and with more animo! Animo is just working with more enthusiasm. We are already putting it in action and we are seeing the results.
INFORMATION ABOUT CHRISTMAS:
We are going to be doing the video call by skype on Christmas day, we will be doing the call at 11 o’clock our time, so nine o’clock your time. I am looking forward to being able to call and talk with you guys. For Mother’s Day we only had 40 minutes but this time, for Christmas, we have one hour. I’m not sure where everyone will be for Christmas day but, it would be sweet to be able to talk with everyone, like we did for Mother’s Day.
I am writing later today because this morning we went to Monjas, which is about 45 minutes away to be able to go to a lake. I will send some pictures and video.
I loved getting the emails from you all! I am so happy that Scareboxes did so well during the months of November and December! It is also kinda nice that you guys can chill a little bit now and think about and do other things. That is crazy dad that you bought those new tools! They are going to help with the process so much! I think it is a really good idea to have grandpa help with the mechanisms. That would also be amazing if the CNC place can help with the wires and they do not try to take you do the cleaners.
I love the insight about the difference between Wisdom and Knowledge! Lots of times we have the knowledge required to make a decision, but we are not sure what the right decision is. When we ask of God, He can give us the answer through the Holy Ghost (Espiritu Santo).
I love hearing about some of the stuff that is going on at home, and the reminder about some of those little things that always happen. Like looking left, and watching out for the crazy neighbors.
I don’t think I have gotten any taller in the mission, it’s just that everybody is really really short! :)
I know that president likes leaving people in areas a little longer but I feel that 2 areas in a year is a little uncommon. I didn’t know that you only had four areas in your mission also.
I love the saying, "Never Get Bored with Consistency!" I would love to get a picture of that as well as some from inside the house and of the snow, and whatever pictures that have been taken of the family.
Thank you, Kylie and Dad, for buying the flowers for mom, it made me really happy to hear that.
Elder Fogg and I will be going to the sealing this Saturday, we thought it was usually a year process, but somebody told us that it is normally a year but if the bishop feels that they are ready it can be six months. I do not know if that is true or not, but this Saturday is the day that they gave us.
Well Dad, I feel frustrated for you that the plow has a couple of problems! That is honestly so classic, it just would not be right if everything went smooth the first time. Hopefully the guy who calls to help is not too much of a dweeb.
I love you all so much and hope that you all enjoy your last week before Christmas!
Love, your brother and son,
