Thanks a bunch for the packages mom. I'm thinking about sending you something from here, maybe some of the snacks that are pretty popular here. De modo que no esté muy caro..
Thanks for checking in with Karson, I´m glad he is alright. Tell him he can email me if he wants, also...
Yeah, Alejandro is really great. Really humble, too. He told us this week that he feels more peace and can just handle things better, work, kids, everything, because he has been reading the Book of Mormon and praying also. And I thought to myself, that he is right. What he is feeling is evidence of the spirit in his life and he is able to recognize that. He is able to recognize that because of prayer and scripture study, he feels better, things seem to be going better. And this also made me think of times in my life when I didn't read my scriptures very often, and also sometimes where I didn't think I needed to pray. And I remember that things really weren't as good. I can't name anything specific but I know also based on my experience and the experience of someone who just barely began reading scriptures and praying often that it really makes a difference throughout the day. So yeah, when you find a little time, whip out Alma 32 or Mormon 9 or any other scripture and just read a bit :) And maybe also say a little prayer so that you might be able to learn something that will serve you. I remember telling Brother Sweat one day in the seminary building that I wanted to get in the habit of reading scriptures and that I had been reading at least a little bit everyday but sometimes I would get to the point of the day before bed where I would think, "Oh man I gotta read some scriptures, but I really really really really just want to go to bed..." And sometimes, a lot of the time it was hard to actually do it. Many times I just read, sometimes I didn't. So I asked Brother Sweat. thinking that there was a magic seminary teacher counsel to fix this, "How can I fix this, do you know what I mean?" And in reply, laughing a little bit, he said, "Wyatt I feel the same way all the time." So all in all, yeah it's a little hard sometimes, sometimes really hard, to just sit down and read, maybe a page of scripture, or even maybe a chapter. But, if we just do it, like Alejandro, we are going to be thankful we did it and Heavenly Father is going to bless us.
And that´s my journal entre for the week, W. Koeven, haha.
For Christmas I would really love some more of those Nike Dry Fit socks... Black. And long.. They are incredible. Maybe a Pizza Hut pizza, but that's not gonna happen :) And at the moment, I'm thinking more Reeses Puffs hahaha. But can I think about that one Mom? For at least another week because I know that you´re going to have to send stuff a month in advance... :)
The other day I was thinking about how you told me about the different family members that are sending money to help out with the mission fund. I'm really grateful for that... Y voy a empezar ecribiendo cartas para dar gracias a ellos.
Well Mom I have to go, but I love you :)
P.S. How are my Grandparents doing?
