oh mandy poo. you are the best. im really glad you have such a good perspective on life. the most improtant thing you can learn in this life is that heavenly father loves you his son Jesus Christ knows you perfectly and knows exactly how to help you in any situation. and that heavenly father fights everyday so you can return too him someday with your family. as members of the church we don't realize how big of a blessing it is to truly understand who god is. most people think he is a blob or some mass that can be everywhere or is somehow three people in one body but sometimes 2 bodies. but we know that he is a loving heavenly father. and if you look at our parents on this earth and our families we can get the smallest glimpse of how much our perfect heavenly father loves us and wants us to be happy. thats really cool that you have a testimony of tithing. while on my mission thats been a tough thing for people to understand. but its one of the simplest commandments. we basically are asked to get rid of what Satan uses to make us greedy and prideful. and we gain blessing greater then we can even receive. and i love you lots. ill try to send some Christmas cards soon and tell Tammy and Roger i love them lots and they are the best.

(email to Chris)
well shoot happy almost birth day papshmere! ill share the story of on of our members who came back. he is an oil worker who works crazy hours and he was a convert and he randomly called us this week and said he wanted to meet with us... so we went to his place and he said he had been reading the BOM and had a really strong feeling that he needed to become temple worthy. so it was really cool we taught him a lesson about reading prayer and church and he came to church this Sunday and set up a time to meet with the bishop. so it was really cool to see. well have the happiest of birthdays and try not to get into to much trouble.
