I love the pictures from Florida. It made me laugh that you still remember putting power bars in my shoes to ride the Hulk. You must be tall Brooks! :D & Braxton, you look like you have grown a lot too.
Awesome to hear about the testimonies yesterday in sacrament meeting. Blake you have a super strong testimony of the Savior.
Ben, that's awesome you are working on a song on the piano. What song is it? You'll have to send a recording when you finish!
Transfer doctrine came in Saturday & I am going to a place that starts with the letter B. (drum roll!) Beverly Glen. :) My new companion, Elder Jacobs, speaks Portuguese as well & the Las Vegas temple is in the ward boundaries! I remember driving through that area often when we'd stop to visit the temple in Las Vegas when I was little.
I will miss this ward a lot. This week we had a lesson with a boy named Iza'ya who is 15. It was really cool because we were able to relate a lot. He recently was in a car accident and broke his femur. He is going through physical therapy right now. We are teaching him the Gospel as he recovers. I know that there is a reason I was able to teach him. I learn a lot from him too. He never stops smiling.
The biggest thing I have learned is the power that lies in small things:
The things I'll miss the most are the small things:
-singing instead of knocking
-morning sports kinacke
-Neal A Maxwell quote conversations
-watching the District on baptism days
-Corcran's & Sanders dogs
-Elder Phipps' push-up/candy lesson
-Brazilian lunch with Sister Tippetts
-tae kwan do at Craig's
-dinner waffles at the Watkins
-"Amigos!" "Como esta!?"
-PEC mission stories
Just a couple. I'm excited though to go to the Beverly Hills ward and make memories.
