Go ye therefore, and teach all nations,
baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you.
Matthew 28:19-20

A month of Thanksgiving

Hey mom glad to hear everything is going well! thanks for sending the dough!
Well one of our fechas fell through. O well. Faith Hope Charity. the others are doing fine, and we found a part member family this week. Elder V. and I are working extremely hard here.
I read a lot of cool stuff this week in the scriptures. A Christlike attribute I've been working on is charity. Like you've told me, it's not worth it to judge. Christ speaks so clearly about it on the Sermon of the Mount. If we want to help other out, we need to start with our own selves. Moroni warns people of passing bad judgement upon other's rapidly. I've done that wayyyyyyyyyy to often in my life. Before I come home, I truly want to be a more charitable person. In order to accomplish that, you must first have faith, hope, obedience, and diligence (teaching of Pres. Brough.) That's one of my goals before I come home. .
I'm sorry to hear that you still havne't found a car yet. Don't worry. God requires trials before we can feel true joy. I'm glad to hear John has his expectations high. I'll play plenty of bball with him when I get home.
I'll make sure and pray for R. and for Mrs. P. They're fighters.
Well, hope everything goes well this week. Before you know it, you'll be eating  Thanksgiving. What day is Thanksgiving?
I like what you said about having an attitude of gratitude. Prayers are so much more meaningful when we take time to look at how the Lord has blessed us. I always love the example of the 10 lepers, and how only 1 went back to thank Jesus for healing him. He told that leper that his faith had made him whole. The others were made whole physically, but for being grateful, the other was made whole spiritually and physically.
Well I love you guys a ton and wish the best for you this week!
