Andy's Mission Scripture

Andy's Mission Scripture:

"I know that which the Lord hath commanded me, and I glory in it. I do not glory of myself, but I glory in that which the Lord hath commanded me; yea, and this is my glory, that perhaps I may be an instrument in the hands of God to bring some soul to repentance; and this is my joy."

~Alma 29:9

Mostly just a note to the fam...some other good stuff though!

Hey Fam!

I would like to thank sincerely My Greatest Fan Dana for all the love that she has sent to me...i will miss the ``babbling`` haha written down to me in various  colors of enjoyment but i will not miss having to imagine her babbling to me when i will be able to hear this babbling in person...I want to thank you Papa for the Japanese goodies!!! I made my buddies Elder M. Machado and Elder Gomes a Argentino eat seaweed for the first time in thier lives! ELder Gomes loved it! but Elder M. Machado ran to the trash can to spit it out! haha Not everyone has fine taste...The sweet bean jelly is also a new one for them! Im seriously cherishing these goodies as its been WAY to long since ive had a good munch of some good ol japonese food...My companion Elder Arne is thailandesa so he loves weird food as well. Im loving it here in Ducks. Its hot as heck but Im used to being soaked in sweat. I sincerely apologize for not having written you guys. I hope my emails to the President give you an idea of whats going on with the peeps were teaching. About the letters Dana, they take about 2 weeks to  a month or around the end of December will be the end of the Snail trail...Just to let you guys know that im planning on buying some really nice leather covers for my scriptures and preach my gospel and it will be around 130 reais....I was thinking about buying some for you guys as they are leather covers with whatever image of art you would like from the scriputers carved into them. they are really beautiful just i dont think they make covers for the english versions of scriptures sadly....One of our investigators named Kristauv is a serious artist and is painting a painting of the last supper with the 12 apostles and Jesus Christ thats turning out seriouly cool and is fairly large if you guys dont mind if i buy you a present for 500 reais...i dont know just thinking about it....Anyways I think that This will be my last area and ill probably will be getting a new compaion next week as Elder Arne has been here for almost 6 months and it his first area. I learned this week that truly Christ had the world on his shoulders and all the power in the world to relieve the burdens of others and for Himself but HE has a sound understanding of the purpose of trials in our lives and a love so imcompreehendable that He let himself suffer for others. Its good to lift the burdens of others being a friend in need, but sometimes people have to learn for themselves the hard way...I know the CHrist lives and loves us...and I hope that we express our love and appreciation for what He did through our own actions. I hope you guys have a great week... Love Elder Andy
