Testimonies, Ties, Freebies and God has a hand in All...

Another Delicious letter from James!  His testimony is so strong and vibrant!  I hope you can feel it too!

"Dear Mother!!!!

Sorry I haven't been writing!!  Found out I can only write once a week!  Also, the response to these letters may be out of order ;)   BUT!!!

I saw Parker Davis the other day!  My best friend in 8th grade?  His dad wrote "The Other Side of Heaven!"  Also, saw Sister Hiatt!!  One of Prez Hiatt's daughters!  Oh!  And I saw Sister Jocelyn Verkist as well!  So long story short, it is soo cool -- when you haven't seen a friend in soo long -- to see them at the best place they could be!  The MTC!!!  I imagine that the same experience will happen at heaven..."Wow!"  I'm sooo stoked we made it!

Thank you for all your prayers!  I do go to bed on Fire!  I feel that I get inspiration on a daily basis!  I just need to follow it more!

Hey!  On June 23rd!  Please watch the Leadership Broadcast!!!  I'll be in the choir!  The missionary part of the choir will be about 1300 strong!  That's a ton!  I hear it's gonna be a huge announcement!

I tried to go up a cement step yesterday and instead, proved gravity exists ... I slammed the pavement ... mas, Tudo bem!  Though I probably won't spell this right, Eu Falei Somente Portuguese haje e eu posso pensar mais meihor em este lingua!  Eu amo isso!

We heard a fantastic talk on Sunday by Stephen B Allen.  He showed a lot of Mormon Messages - commercials -- the best one talked about the Spirit.  We are counseled to lean not unto our own understanding, to expound on that -- when we follow the Spirit, 'we must not seek the reason - just be obedient."

I still love your pictures soo much!  Today,  I found two gnarly but colorful ties in the Free box ( a treasure trove of unloved items for the benefit of whoever comes first.

We watched the Testament this Sunday - and I felt like I watched it for the first time!  I want you all to know that Eusei que Jesus Vive.  Eu tento animo por cuando Ele volta na Terra Va ser LEGAL.  Nos devemos trabalhar a conhece Jesus Cristo por meio da Expiagao antes de Ele vem.  Es amo Ele, e eu posso pregar suas palavras Eu gosto deste igresink, e eu espero que todos pessoas podam escutar meo testamente.

Before I close ...

I want you all to know that I love you.  I could not ask for a better family, and I'm sure that we had already decided that we were going to help each other out in this life -- in the life before.  If you need anything from me - anything at all, let me know!

PPS -- The night I received the letter saying that Grandpa wasn't doing so hot .. I prayed HARD.  It was not a fun night.  I can tell you though that as my Companion Elder Capaviara and I stretched our voices up to Heaven, I received a personal witness that God loves Grandpa and Grandma - He truly does - whether they like it or not - and even though I would love to see Grandpa on Earth - if I have to see Him again on the other side - that is ok.  I know that if so, Grandpa will be receiving the blessing promised in 2 Ne 24:3.  I know that if anything, when I see him in Heaven, his mortal body will be perfected.  His stature will be coupled with Heavenly Glory.  Though I pray that I can see Him again -- and I know He can do it!  I also trust that God has a hand in whatever happens!

Tudo Ben.  Ate-logo.  Eu amo voces.
