November 28, 2011
Well, I got some weird news this last Thursday. I don’t know why but our district leader isn’t district leader anymore. It is weird news because we are in the middle of the transfer. So I was asked to be the District leader. It is really weird because the old district leader is still in the district. It appears that he along with the other senior of another companionship did something, what, I don’t know. But they stayed so it is kind of awkward now. ]

This past week was good. I am in a half decent mood. Rather stressed now, just putting another thing on my plate. I am still rather preoccupied by what exactly I will study and major in and in the end do for work. I am still worried about that. I don’t want to lose time studying something and in the end change my mind.

We also had another meeting with Elder Costa this past week. We were all waiting to get a good burning but in the end he ended up being really, really fun. He is a very interesting man. Many things he said were interesting. He told us a few times that if an apostle called him one day and asked him if he knew “so and so” in the hospital who needed a heart transplant , and he said obviously I wouldn’t know this person, but he continued…. And if that apostle told me to go to the hospital and give him my heart I would be there before he finished talking. It was interesting to reflect about his testimony and faith. And I don’t know if I would be able to do that. So it has been very interesting to think about it all.

It has been a number of great weeks. Have you all seen the stuff about the dedication of the temple here?

Well, I hope, hope this was a good email!!! I wish you all a good week. Love you all!!!!

This past week was a downer. We both got sick so it didn’t help our work out very much.
I struggled through the meeting with Elder Bednar. I was sick so my head was having some problems. And with the lighting behind him it was sometimes hard to focus. But I had a chance to learn a lot.  He talked about a number of things. He focused a lot on “act and not be acted upon”.  He then shared an interesting idea with us. He said to get a cheap Book of Mormon and then pick a question or topic and read the Book of Mormon as many times as you can in 6 months only looking for and answering that specific question. So I decided to try it. I started yesterday so we will see how it goes. I chose the topic of Elder Bednar’s conference, Agency. I thought it was a good first topic. I haven’t made it very far because it took such a long time trying to decide on a topic!!! Haha   And no,  I didn’t get to go to the ground breaking.
I did get to see Dante!!!! and a bunch of other people I had the privilege of baptizing!!! It was fun!!!
Well, no package yet.  We will see if it ever arrives.

That is exciting news about Kiki! So when is she going to get married exactly? That is really weird.
Well, I need to write President still.
I love you all and wish you all a good week!!!
