Well family, the moment you have all been waiting for. This last week was crazy. On thursday like seriously ten min after emailing you guys I went and got the mail cuz thats one of the four things a district leader does and we totally got our flight plans for our departure which is on Tuesday! I am soo excited to be out in the field. I'm not sure how ready I am but its like I always say there is no time like the present. I leave the MTC at like 8 on tuesday and from Salt lake to sacramento. I'll get there at 12 sacramento time. I am sooo excited. Well some crazy stuff has happened this week but before I start I have a bone to pick with my Mom. Why did you have to be such an amazing cook?! Everyone keeps saying how well they like the food here and while yes it is good, it is still uncomparable to my mothers home cooked meals. And dads spaghetti. Also what are ya'll trying to do to me?! You send me a box full of candy one day and then a box of doughnuts the next?! Do you want me to get fat? Ha just kidding but seriously. I'm very greatful for the packages though. Its nice to hear about everything going on at home. It makes me feel a tiny bit normal. Its exciting to hear that dad can finally get that hump off his shoulder and look normal again! I'm jealous i didn't get to go to the temple dedication but we did have an awesome fireside on sunday. It was by brother allen of the managment department at the MTC. He was funny and it was a good talk. Then on monday we woke up to a cloudy day and looked out our window to what we thought was rain but when we looked on the ground we noticed it was definitely snow! We thought it would melt and stop by eight or so but no it kept going all day long! I was freaking out. Everyone laughs at me cuz I always wear my suit coat even when we don't have to because its cold here. So the snow was fun. Then on tuesday we had an awesome devotional. We don't know who gives them until they come in and sit on the stand but fifteen min before it started a guy got up and said he wanted to remind us to stand whenever an apostle walks into the room so we all got way excited and then a few minutes later Elder D. Todd Christofferson walked it! He gave a great talk and we learned so much from it. Classes here are awesome because we learn soo much. Its hard sometimes to stay on task because some of us have become such good friends but we do our best. My favorite thing about this gospel is that if your testimony on one thing our church beleives in grows then your testimony about everything else we believe in grows as well. Its awesome. I am so happy to have a family. It is one of the greatest blessings we have on this earth. Oh and btw i like ties. We learned a lot about the atonement this week and it was awesome! This gospel is great! Well I don't have much time so I'll start closing. I hope you all are doing well at home. Oh and no i couldn't see you guys on top of the parking garage. That would have been cool though. Everything here is going good. I might need a new inhalor soon so maybe send me one to have when i get to sac town? The altitude gets me sometimes so i've used mine more than I wanted to. Well I know this church is true. I know Heavenly Father loves each of his children. I know that if we all strive to live up to the covenants we make here on earth we will be able to live with heavenly father once again after this life. I love you all and hope your doing well. Take advantage of dearelder cuz when I'm out of here it won't be very convenient. I like to get mail so even if its just to say hi it would be great. I love you all.
