First things first, HAPPY BIRTHDAY MATT!! you are a big 14 yr old now! oish.
As you all know the last two days were conference. Wasn’t that just joyous? The cool things about conference that don’t have anything to do with amazing talks:
- My old mission President, President Greer became an area 70. !!!!! WOW
- They sang “Lead Kindly Light,” “A Child’s Prayer,” aand “I Stand all Amazed.” So they had very good song selection.
- My choir director from the MTC was the one directing the Orem institute choir.
- Whenever you watch conference you just feel so connected to the glorious world of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
Culture and Superstition
A lot of times I hear of other cultures being criticized for how superstitious they are. I heard lots of times about how superstitious people are in Central America. Going there, I found that it was true—people told some wild stories about devil possession and people or things changing form or shape and ghosts is a big fear there.

That quote is in honor of the fact that this week we did a service project for a family where we were planting grape vines, you have to dig a very large hole, for such a small little plant. We took working in the vineyard literally. No worries, they were just table grapes. It was good for me to work out my noodle arms again, and I think I am a digging machine. I could totally work in the fields with my investigators. Cough.
This week we got to go to the temple, which is why this email is coming to you two days late. Sorry I forget and never end up telling you the week before this happens, although I figure you have to forgive me. Just know that I love you regardless of my mistakes.
This week was GREAT! Well I’m not really sure if the full week was great, but at least yesterday was great, and that’s usually as far back as I can really remember. Nah I think, it was mostly good. We had 9 member presents this week with all different people and we actually had a member just volunteer to come out with us… It was awesome!
You’ll all be happy to here that I’m not getting transferred nor is Hermana Jackson. Six more blissful weeks. I also had a dream that Brynn came to the mission without telling me and I ended up training her for my last two transfers. Haha
