"Conference was great. I loved Elder Holland's talk right at the beginning. The theme that I got out of Conference was- Batten down the hatches and prepare for hell. There was a talk about dealing with persecution in every single session. I have the feeling that it is going to get bad real soon, and we are going to be the ones who have to stand strong in the storm. The other theme I got out of it was exact obedience, and time management. All of our efforts must be focused on that which yields good fruit, whether that is becoming influential so that we can fight for the faith on a large scale, caring for our families and friends and taking care of those cherished relationships, or building our testimony. There is no time to be wasted in this short life. Every minute must be spent adding to the person that you will ultimately become. That is my conference insight for you. I am interested about the themes you got out of it too. I am sure it was different from mine because we all gain insights through revelation that applies specifically to us."
This week must be spring break for you guys! I bet you will have a wonderful time at grandma's. Tell her hi for me.
I am really jealous that you get to go to the Getty. I love the Getty. That is an incredible place. Make sure to draw a picture for me if they still have the area where you can draw a sculpture. I could wander the Getty for days without tiring. I will have to make a trip back one day.
Daniel wrote this in his letter to Rachel: I don't know if mentioned that I was proposed to last week by a chubby middle- aged woman. It was crazy! It is definitely not just me that gets proposed to. I may get it slightly more frequently because I am a decent looking guy, but if you are white, it will happen. Jamaicans love white skin. Instead of tanning, they try to stay as light as possible. The browner the better for them. It is odd in contrast to our "get tan" attitude. They also are well aware of the fact that life is far easier in our wonderful country, and would like to get up to america or canada one day.
Hey Nathan, thanks for the reminder about flat stanley. I will make sure to do that for sure.I have around 450 days left on my mission right now. It will fly by though. I am glad you are doing so well!
|MERRY GENERAL CONFERENCE FROM THE MO BAY DISTRICT!|
