This week was pretty crazy. First - our house. The owners are painting and fixing small things. The next thing you know the roof has a huge problem and they have to fix it NOW or something bad will happen. So we have been looking for new houses! Its kinda sad because this house has air conditioning! I do NOT want to go without A/C in the Monterrey summer. That would be terrible! It gets up to 110 degrees and about 90 at night!
We had a zone conference so that is when I finally recieved my packages. I loved everything in it! Especially the Utah state shorts and now I can breathe with Advair in my life again. I had an interview with President McArthur and he just keeps saying how proud you guys are of me and my brother. He keeps giving me tips and it helps me so much! My weakness is not having enough faith for some reason. I dont know why but that is one thing that I need to fast and pray for!
THEN we had stake conference! I learned two great sayings from a seventy that came. One of them said " Virgin de Guatalupe, Buddah, Mohammad, San Judas - NOT ONE of these religion leaders or saints ever said, "I have paid for your sins" - so why worship them. I respect your religous beliefs BUT only ONE has paid for your sins and that is our Savior and Redeemer Jesus Christ" ! WOW... it was very powerful and is so true!
Also another one was cool (dad be careful with this one... mom is going to try and take advantage) "Men won't have the power of the priesthood if you don't listen to your wife!"
Daniel Silva was going to take us to the conference and then we were like NANCY ( his wife) and his son brandon.... come to stake conference with us! I don't care if you come in a soccer jersey, just come! I'll even make some pancackes while you get ready. And guess what? They actually came! It was so awesome to see them there and Daniel was super happy also to not go alone. Nancy always says I'm her adopted white son!
I can't wait to go fishing in the new boat and then drive my moms new car! Sounds great! I love you and miss you! Tell everyone I say hi!
