Sorry for the small letter, well the online one, but today we were grounded because of ice on the road so we didn’t go to the library. We just went to the office of the apartments and used their spare computer. We were trying to be short so I just read all of the e-mails and am writing instead. We have all of the elders of the district here. We just had the best home-made pizza. My comp can cook and the other elders in the apartment, and we are playing cards and ping pong. We are not the only ones that go crazy. We really like the music but I will send the ipod home with a list of approved songs and albums.
There is someone that doesn’t have food. He has been being taught for at least a month and the last time that we were over he broke down in tears because he has no food.
We have a lot of non-members come to church and have been coming for a long time. The companion that I am with now, and I might as well have been siblings.
I have random questions for you. I have heard of the church coming out with a new hymn book. Is that true? And if so, is “Come Thou Fount” in it or “Amazing Grace”? Can I get a copy of the D&C DVD’s in Spanish, they are somewhat new. We got some from the mission bit it is only in English. It is a great teaching tool.
We had stake conference and the Prophet spoke. It was a broadcast, but he said that those who do not magnify their calling will be held accountable for the people that they could/would have helped. And another person said that as a church we are too careless as to playing video games. He said we need to remove distractions and he listed things like; X-box, Playstation, and Wii need to be used with even more caution and stuff like that.
I am writing a lot today. We went to our dinner because it was not far and still have several hours before bed. …
