President Dayton

Vitoria Week Ten

Hey guys,

I love you so much. Working my hardest to make you guys and my Heavenly Father proud of me.

I just got the photo card reader and it worked so I will share some pics!

We had a zone meeting with President Dayton and his wife yesterday. Elder Sedgwick and I sang “Be Still My Soul” acappella for zone conference, so that was interesting.

Not many stories to share, just one short one. This past week we were walking the streets and passed by this guy outside a bar eating seeds.  So we sat down and talked to him.  I ended up eating all of his seeds so I bought him some more from the bar along with a bag of peanuts – they just sell big bags of nuts and seeds at the bars here. We ended up talking to him about a bunch of stuff for about an hour and a half and got a baptismal fecha with him. Anyways reminded me of eating peanuts at home with you guys and watching baseball on school nights ahaha.

I cut my own hair with scissors and it is pretty good ahahah. You will see in the pictures.

My spiritual message this week is simple. God is our loving Heavenly Father. He gave us his Only Begotten, Jesus Christ, to atone and pay the price for our sins so that we can live with Them as well as our families forever. Not only did He pay the price for our sins, but He took upon himself everyone’s pains, afflictions, addictions, and sicknesses so He could better succor us. So He could know exactly what we are going through at all times. I know that the atonement is for all of us and we can all use it no matter what situation we are in, and by doing so we will be closer to our Heavenly Father. Jesus is the Christ, our Savior and Redeemer, and He lives. Because He lives, we don’t need to be alone, ever, He is always there for us. I hope you find joy in this paragraph because I know it is true, and so can you. Pray and ask your Heavenly Father about it, you will receive an answer.

Thanks for all of the emails!

Get Buckets!
