Hola mi familia,
What a crazy first couple days. So busy yet so insightful at the same time. I have loved it so very much!! Okay Elder Cavin lived in our neighborhood when I was about ten ish when i fractured my arm on the skate ramps haha. So that was about the time he lived there. I was only district leader for one night. Then my companion was called my the branch president to be the district leader. So ya haha. Its not that hard. all I basically had to do was approve splits and nobody asked me to go on splits for that day so that was fun. I told you about Sunday already. SO AMAZING!!
haha so Mom and Natalie Cryed together all the way to St. George huh?? haha Just kidding. Im glad I left you two together! I hope you guys can have fun and enjoy yourselfs. Thank you again for the packages. They were so amazing. And Knowing you are sharing my letters back and forth makes me happy also because I might put something in one letter and forget in the next letter so now I don’t have to worry about offending anybody 😀 So that is muy bien. I’m glad you had a great Easter. I missed going to the park with you guys. But it was good to hear the talks. Thanks for the notes on the Broadcast. I loved them and they will for sure help me.
Thank you so much for your words of encouragement. They always always always help so thank you. So my fingernail came off. Kinda….. Part of it came off and then I picked and picked and picked at it. then went to the book store and got a nail file and filed it off till it was smooth.. It turns out that there was a nail under my nail….So I dunno if the blood like split my nail or what but It looks a lot better. I will send a picture for sure. Hmm what else.. O tuesday was an amazing devotional. Some one from the seventy talked I don’t remember his name but Natalie has it in hear letter. One thing that he said that I really enjoyed is
“Imagine your parents/siblings/friends bedrooms. Imagine their bed. Now imagine them neeling at the side praying… and who are they praying for?”
What a blessing that is to think about and how much you all are supporting me in everything. Especially at this time. I Love everything that has been sent to me and told to me. You are so amazing.
So yes dad all the milk that you want.
Sundays and Wednesdays all you can eat BYU creamery Ice cream. So amazing haha. All you can eat everything really.
O yes. I have ran into Jordan Josh and Dillon.
Jordan (going to denmark) has been temporarily reasigned to Oklahoma till his visa comes through. so funny. We were at the same seccion this morning. Just like old times.
Josh (going to argentina) will probably be reasigned too. We had to get re-fingerprined on tuesday for our visas. I don’t really know what for. But they said it usually takes to weeks to get a visa but the ambassator that has to sign them is backed up so thats no good haha.
Now Dillon…. haha the only thing I have to say about Dillon is… I’m SO GLAD IM NOT SPEAKING RUSSION. haha He bore his testimony to my in russion and basically nothing sounds the same. So ya im glad its him and not me. But he does have lots of patience. He’s an awesome Man.
Lets think any other questions I need to answer..
O ya any answer about any Staily’s from Roy Utah that we’re related to?
O ya the food. Mom your so funny. I love your cooking. Basically the only story on the food is today we ate breakfast at the Temple cuz we were sick of the MTC Food. SO MUCH BETTER WHEN COOKED BY TEMPLE WORKERS haha.
Goodness so new rule. We can officially email anybody we want to now. and we have an hour to email instead of 30 Min. So that is awesome. We are the first missionaries to have that rule changed so that is muy bueno.
Well a little more on the language. Its coming……. Its frustrating sometimes but its coming. Diligence is key. I’m having a hard time focusing all the time though. I keep praying and praying so hopefully I will learn to focus one day. But ya we have an investigator (already a memeber just acting.) So we are teaching him in spanglish. thats its Good. Elder Cavin is so much better than me. But I didn’t say that cuz we’re not suppose to compare lol. But he really is amazing. I try but where I’m so stinkin quiet I don’t say much. I try I just don’t do the best with the spanish. So thats always fun. But I love my companiong. he’s awesome.
O one thing Is me and Elder Stanford (who is elder Varners/Troys Companinon who is the other companionship in our room) have so much in common. Kinda… haha. He loves music and is amazing at harmonies. He went on the Jamboree. He’s a true beach bum though. he talks about how they would walk up and down the beach looking for change just to buy a pizza to have energy to do more surfing haha. But he graduated early at age 16 and he’s been going to BYU Hawaii. He says he lived right across the beach so they would just walk out to go surfing after class.But anyways I was going somewhere with this. He and I went to an empty classroom with a piano last night after we ate dinner super fast and sand. like i said he’s amazing at harmonies. So that was so much fun!!! It was good to sing and play piano.. I miss it. Then some of the rest of our district came and we just sang for like 10 min. I loved loved loved loved it. We were going to sing a song and record it but we didn’t quite made it. haha. So maybe next week. but ya music has been my biggest blessing out here for me. I’m always whisling a song and it always brightens my day. I love it.
Hmm ya but life is great. I love my district. They are so awesome and so spiritual. I have learned so much from them. I love hearing stories from them and just feeling their spirit. Feeling the spirit. Es muy bien.
But ya. Best way to write a letter to my is through Dear Elder.
Anyways I love you all. Hopefully I Didn’t leave anything out. I love you I love you I love you.
Your happy Missionary Elder Dial
Another thing that was spoken about in the tuesday Night devotional is:
“There is a reason Nephi Went back for the Plates before he went back for a Wife.”. He needed that foundation to build his faith on just as each of us do. How true for each of us. i loved that thought and just thought about it.
Also, my camera isn’t downloading so I’m gonna go to the book store and hopefully they have card readers in stalk. then i can send you some pictures while the laundry is goinig. If you don’t get more emails from me later today maybe send me a package with a card reader to use?? and a Thumb drive. Or two haha.
Love you all.
