Hello Adoptive Mom, I'm Elder Sanchez. I hope you have a happy birthday :D
That was sent from my old companion, Elder Sanchez from Guatemala. He's here with me right now! :)
I'm so glad you got my package!!! I really liked the nativity set with the indians. They are called Tarahumaras. They are indigenous people from Mexico. :)
( I told him that he needs to be sure and bring home a Mexican nativity and/or Christmas ornament. This past Tuesday, we received a package in the mail that had a Nativity set, an SD card, his first name tag, and two bracelets. It was so fun to get)
(Last week I asked Preston if he could help me with my talk that I had to give in sacrament meeting this past Sunday. I asked him if he could share his thoughts about being a missionary and able to put aside the world for these now nearly 19 months that he has been serving and live such a Christ-centered life. Here is his response:)
I love studying the scriptures each morning. I love that it is a way to put on the armor of God, to be prepared for whatever temptation comes my way. My testimony of the Book of Mormon has been strengthened tremendously because I am anxiously engaged in my studies. The Book of Mormon truly was written for our day. I am grateful for the opportunity I have to Read, Ponder, and Pray on the Words of Christ.
Love you tons,
This week's scripture to Ponderize is:
2 Nephi 32:3
Angels speak by the power of the Holy Ghost; wherefore, they speak the words of Christ. Wherefore, I said unto you, feast upon the words of Christ; for behold, the words of Christ will tell you all things what ye should do.
