|Elder Haskell and Elder Williams at the Dallas Temple!|
Que pasaaaaaa?!? Well mother and father, I don't really know where you are, who you are with, or what the latest is; but I sure hope you're with Tommy by now! I greatly look forward to hearing about your reunion and seeing pictures of this glorious time! It feels like just the other day that we went to dinner and I put a picture on instagram of Tom and I for his one year anniversary. Where has time gone?!
What a week I had here! Not really. It's been frrrreeezing here for the last few days! But apparently it is supposed to be back up in the 70's again soon. Strange strange weather. We had a bit of a slow week as far as teaching and finding goes. We had two good lessons with Luis though. He is our only progressing investigator right now. While he is progressing and reading, he certainly isn't making it easy on us! But we are getting there.
On Thursday we went to President's house in the morning for breakfast and a temple training. There house is nice! For some reason I didn't imagine him having a kitchen and a yard and neighbors, but he is normal! He's kinda like a teacher: you only see them at work, and it is hard to imagine them outside of the school building, but they have lives too! It was just kinda funny for me to see him in a different setting. After breakfast, we went to the Temple. Boy was that refreshing! There is no other place on earth that comes anywhere near a temple. It is just so different, and I love it! I am grateful to have Temples of the Lord all around the world. Dad, I don't know when the last time is that you went, but you should go! Temples are such an incredible blessing that we need to take advantage of.
I am filled to the brim with gratitude right now! I am thankful for the best family on the planet! With understanding and supportive parents.I am thankful for the examples God has put in my life, starting of course with my father, then my brother, church leaders, and many many others! I am thankful for good friends that urged me and made it easy to live in a way that is pleasing to the Lord. I am thankful to be here in Texas at this time doing what I'm doing. I'm thankful for my companion! I'm thankful for technology that allows me to keep in touch with loved ones! I am thankful for happy people and kind people and pure-hearted people. I am eternally grateful to have a knowledge of the Restored Gospel and the fact that I have a loving Heavenly Father and I can have a relationship with him. The Gospel of Jesus Christ has brought a bagillion blessings to my life and my family and I owe the Lord for it all. I'VE GOT THE BEST I'VE GOT THE BEST I AM SO BLESSED!
