Letter recieved 7-4-11


So lets start with some funny moments this week. Well I was sitting in a lesson. And I ask a group of University students what do they picture when they think of Heavenly Father. So this kid goes well I think of the KFC guy and without missing a beat I go oh you mean Colonel Chicken and I genuinely thought it was his name. Then all of a sudden Elder Unger starts laughing and goes you mean Colonel Saunders. I was like um well if that is his name then yes that is what I mean. It was funny we all had a good laugh and it helped get the guys more involved and willing to talk, read and answer questions. Then the next funny is me arguing with Elder Unger about a color of a car. And having him going for a bit and then finally saying dude I am color blind I know I am wrong I just wanted to see how long I could get you going with it.
But lets see crazy news is that Prince William and Princess Kate are in town. We were going to get a picture of them but then we realized how many people were going to be there and realized it would be retarded to even try to get a picture of them. But yesterday they drove right in front of us. So I can say I was at least with in 10 feet of them. It was pretty cool. And at the same time I was like its not like its that big of a deal its just two married people. So I don't know what to think I did want to get a picture so grandpa could see them. Since he served his mission in England I thought he would like that but it just didn't work out. And seemed really unsmart to sit around all day trying to get a picture. So yeah that is the week just been raining a lot which I don't really get that cause its supposed to be sunny here and always nice. Well then I show up and it rains a lot and I have feeling its because well the Lord knows I hate rain. And he is just trying my patience until the very end.

So this week has been really good. Me and Elder Unger were talking about the wonderful people were able to teach. And the faith they have as well. You have Scott and Katie who with Jason daily they wonder if this is last moment with him. Stephen and Nicolle who everything that could go wrong seems to. Whether its from faulty electronics to well health. I ask myself would I have the faith or the perseverance to pull through. Would I be able to make it through the trials the Lord has put these great people through. I don't know the answer to that. I would like to hope I could say yes but sometimes I question myself. And in the end find myself grateful for the blessings I have been given. I was born in this great church. I don't have to wonder would I of accepted or would I have ever been able to find it. It was given to me in a sense and I know we all have to become converted and I am not disputing that. But as I watch all the trials Satan puts each of them through I am reminded that Satan is truly in everything. He will stop at nothing to destroy us. Both as investigators or members a like. It bothers me when I hear people say I am converted enough that I would have more control. If David who was favored of the Lord and in all rights a righteous man. Can fall to Bathsheba then certainly we can all fall pray. No one is beyond Satans reach. To think we are is sheer stupidity in its finest. This is a beast that doesn't sleep, doesn't eat, he has someone watch every little move you make. He studies you and learns what bothers you what makes you weak. He has been here since the beginning. He is a terrible foe. But in the end we are told in 1 Nephi 15:24 that scriptures are a means of defense. The Lord himself when faced with temptation turned to scriptures. Truly the way to win and keep your defenses up is only through scriptures they must be a part of our live there is no other way. We will lose with out them and ultimately be brought down to misery. Read the scriptures they are the shield of life.

Anyways I love ya tons and will talk to ya next week.

Love ya,
