December 22, 2014

So I am planning on using the internet between 4-6 here in Acre on the 25th. My companion is going to use the computer to talk with her family first, so just as always keep your eyes out. I dont know how long she will be talking to her family. Anyways, I am excited to talk with you all!

I had a good week. A really good week. :) I was getting nervous about coming home and having to say goodbye to all of my friends. It was really messing up my ability to work. I finally was able to turn everything around with the help of the scriptures. I decided to read in my english set. I looked up fear in the bible dictionary and started to read. I read how it was a feeling unworthy of Gods children. I stopped and made a list of what I was worried or preoccupied about. Then I kept reading. I finally came to the conclusion that the solution to get rid of those feelings was to really repent. I noticed that I hadnt really been repenting lately. Therefore as a consequence I began to build up all of these feelings of anxiety and fear. I said a prayer to Heavenly Father that moment. I prayed with confidence that He would forgive me of my sins, just like it said to do in the Bible Dictionary. Just like that all of my anxiety was gone. It is like I am a whole new person. It is crazy cool how the gospel works. This experience really opened my eyes as to how there is a consequence to every decision we make. My faith has grown so strong these past few weeks. I really am excited to come home and begin sharing the gospel from another persepective. 

Mom, your crazy. I am glad that I was not home to witness that experience. lol. Remmi should cut his hair. Its so long that I dont recognize him anymore. Guys. I really am excited to see you in the airport!!!

Anyways. I am looking forward to talking with you on Christmas. I am sad that you werent able to go to Colorado, but I am glad that I get to talk to you. How is the weather in Oklahoma... cold i bet.  I am not so sure how I will handle the cold. It rained today and I got cold with all the wind. Boa sorte. 

Last week was our Christmas Conference. It was a lot of fun. I got to bear my testimony because I was leaving in a few weeks. Two of the Elders that were in my district last christmas were in my zone again for this christmas. It was fun to see how much everyone has changed and how quickly time flies. :)

Love you all a lot!
