Hey Dad! Happy Holidays, sounds like it has been great for you guys! Vamos Ver?! I never got to speak much Portuguese with ya, I wanted to n stuff. But it is all cool.
Thank you for the mission experience. I have been waiting a long time for that. What mission was it again? It is crazy how our faith gets us baptisms.
Anyway, in Mom’s email I talked about a dance party right? Well I thought it was funny that day, because I had a discussion with my comp about the Color Code. My Comp is a pure RED. It is ridiculous, I don’t think I have ever met a red like him. He is suuuper ambitious, ha! And I talked about how in our house we have one of each color. But I still feel like my yellow doesn’t really show a lot, but it was funny because that night my yellow burst and I was the most social person there!
How is your book coming along? I also thought it was cool I gave a message last night on goals. I wanted to do something different and I thought it was cool what all came together. I like Ether 12:4. I kinda used that as a theme - about how can we put an anchor on our goals (hope for a better world). We read about the Anti Nephi Lehi's who were super firm in their goal, even unto death. I asked what did they do to be so firm? And we looked back in Alma 24:7-10 and how they expressed a lot of thanks about what happened in the past (past year) and how they celebrated their goals. It was cool in the discussion with everyone, about how all the parts of the goal cycle came out. I then said how the whole BofM is set up like this. We have Nephi saying I will show the tender mercies in the first chapter and in the last chapter of the BofM we have Moroni saying look back at the tender mercies v.3 and ponder them in your heart. Then afterwards he goes into seek for the gifts of the spirit, which is basically telling us to make goals. So yeah, was interesting, but now I need to get going on my year goals.
Love ya, Dad!
