Ok so this week has gone well there wasnt really anything that happened there was fathers day and the guy who came and spoke to us wished us future happy fathers day which was funny. And all i have to say is im never sending stuff home again because everytime i do the person who i send a package to is never there to recieve it, i sent dad a package like on friday and it will have probably have goten there today or sometime this week and he is at scout camp but i guess thats ok the preasant is really good and i hope you love it dad. ok yeah i recieved the super awesome package this last week and it was good i didnt get why on earth you sent me those glasses things from the 70's but its cool, i ate all the food already well me and my companions. Ok so the reason for the title is that i read eriks letter and he said that he was getting a new mission presidant, and where do all the mission presidents go befor they go to their areas thats right the mtc. So maybe i can meet eriks new mission pres. this next week and tell him to watch out for my freaking amazing brother. Yeah i know what your thinking is your mission pres. coming in this week too.... no he is not our pres. has been out a year so he will come home when i do and by home i meen germany because thats where he is from, not only are the new mission pres. coming like all the prophets and aposles are coming on saturday and we get to hear from them like 4 times in the next week which is awesome, i saw ave yesterday for the last time in 2 years and it was nice having him here for the 3 out of the 12 weeks that im here, but it was funny because i was like i will miss you when i see the prophet and all the apostles then i huged him and said goodbye. I know im the luckest person here for being here to see all of them. Ok so there really isnt anything to write about so i will just name some good things that i did this week went to the temple and did a session and it was fun because our teacher gave us some names to do and that always fun, we get to do it again this week, cool right. Dad i hope you have fun this week at scout camp up in schofield, one of my comps worked up there for 3 years and loved it and said it was a really good camp, and thats way exciting that you get 3 days paied off of work that is a reall blessing. Ok so yesterday i got into my scriptures and i was trying to find out what the urim and thummim where and what roll they played in the prophets lifes and their reviltion and i came accross this stuff about the temple and i realised that when brother schow came to our house i wasnt really listning and that if i could get those papers that he had and that i think he gave me but i must have lost them, that would be really awesome.
Ok so yeah it would be awesome if i could get a small preach my gosple and some music to preform( preferably in ukrainian) but yeah i think the small preach my gosple would go really well with my small new scriptures that i am going to buy tomorrow and start marking like crazy. You know something that i always took for granted was scripture study and how i would just put it aside because i was tired or i just didnt want to read but i was an idiot and i cant believe i did that. In preach my gosple it says to study the scriptures at a desk not your bed and to read it daily and that we arent aloud to get anyone baptized until they read the bom daily and i thought, man i would have been a terable investigator. so my chalange to all of you is to love your scriptures not just the book of mormon but the bible pearl of great price and also docteran and covanants not only to love them but to study them as if your life depended on it get a new set of scriptures and mark them write in them get a study journal and write insperation you get because that is the most pure way to gain a testimony of god is to read his words and to study them at a desk not your bed.
I have so little time left in the mtc like 20 days do you know how fast that goes and how much i wish that i was out there now and how much i wish i had like 5 more weeks because i dont know about you but while im in the mtc time has flown by and i dont feel like im ready but i just want to be out there because i know the lord will make a way for me to do his work.
Well i love you all and will write you soon probably today a few letters but if not i love you and goodbye
