Elder Gamber, President Correa (their Mission President), Elder McKay Walker
Glad that all is great and yes, doing amazing over here!! This last Sunday we had the confirmation of Angel and it’s sooooo great to see him grow, and he came being sick but wanted to come since he know it’s what he needed to do! His desire and growth amaze me and just bring me soooo much joy! He’s my brother and means sooo much to me!! Me and my comp study in the mornings and reading in Spanish is helpful. Normally I understand it all but if there’s a word I don’t know, I always just have my dictionary right there!
Glad you got to see all the teachers and haha I was just thinking this week about sooo many memories I have of my childhood, when we would go with you in the stroller and go through that little part that we always thought Tarzan lived XD And then all the Limos we called stick cars, when me and dad made my pinewood derby car! Just lots of those things and how wow, You guys rocked XD It made me think a lot about my family and just seeing how I was raised! I’m still reading in that future life book XD it’s what I call it, and just seeing on how to raise your family—strong points they should have, my responsibilities, just there’s so much and I’m thinking how I have to choose a wife that’s going to need to be able to raise our children while I’m out working…. Just sooo much and I think how dad scored with you, mom XD Since I look at how crazy I was and everything I did as a kid, trying to pull off babysitters’ pants and hiding in Walmart or any store, walking home from football practice at 9 at night, taking me to these little soccer games that were the dumbest things ever XD (Still don’t know why I ever wanted to play soccer) All those baseball games, sleepovers with friends after elementary school, with Austin, Trevor, Isaiah, Dawson, haha picking me up after, playing at Brian’s…. SO MANY THINGS!!! It just blows my mind how you dealt with it all, people here are asking how many kids I want and it’s like, I want like 4-6 and I’m thinking like oh heck… I don’t know if I could even handle me… But it’s just I see I have to grow so much and I have to choose an eternal companion….. Don’t even start me on how I’m going to do that…. Still have so much of life yet and I just want all of it to go well, and I’m not ready for problems of life haha. Just a lot to look forward to!
But more on the mission— I just want to grow! Elder Gamber and I have gotten really close and he and Cook and Fehlberf are probs my best homies I have haha in my life! But it’s like I want to be doing a little bit better. I know we have our moments and we work all the time but I want to be the best I can, but we’re such close friends it’s kinda hard to make some changes but it’s chill! I’m about to leave and I’ll have time to make the changes and improve as much as I can! I see there are lots of things I need to improve still and just want to be perfect already but having imperfections is part of life!!!! Just want to be like the Savior as well and live as he would, I love making people happy so that makes this work sooooo much better really just focused on the people!
Got to celebrate the birthday of Angela, who is Angel’s mom and she’s pretty much our mom, whenever we go over she always calls us her white babies XD We call her mom and it’s the best! Was great to be there for that, reminds me of our family parties.. well they had alcohol but we’re working on it, hahaha Angel’s good but the family is the process 😉
Also, we got to have interviews with President. They went really well and just pumped me up and I just want to do all I can to be a good leader, I think I think a lot different than a lot of missionaries which for everyone (looks bad) But I just have a different way to think and it’s not all about baptisms and numbers but yeah! We’ll see. haha I know we’re all doing the same work so it’s great!!!
Made another lemon cake from scratch and it turned out well and tasted great too 😉
Today while we were in Cordoba, we met these two guys from Africa and they loved how tall I was and we became instant buddies haha! We’re already on a brother level and with Africans that’s some serious friendship 😉
Love the mission!!
Thanks Dad!! Yes, we’re trying to get him ready and prepped for the temple and it’s awesome to see how much desire he has. We just confirmed him Sunday and he was sick and everything and still came!!! I love him sooo much and the family is sooooo loving—it’s the best and I just know that all his family will one day be there, it’s a process but Angel I know was a start to something great!!! I love the work and it’s like his progress is helping me soooo much to see how numbers don’t matter at all, it’s the quality that’s going to help fortify the kingdom of God!!! I love being here and hope all is well at home. I miss you guys but know that I’m well and want to do all I can for this year!!! Time yeah is like there! I’m almost at my year mark but still going!!
