A little check list that Elder Spencer made for us :
Just if you could do anything for me it would be the following;
1. dont cry.
2. big banners and cheering and jumping and balloons and confetti, are embarrassing. (at least at the airport)
3. dont forget that I am still a twenty year old. I stink. Don't clean up 100% of the time and yeah. So if you are expecting some perfecto.....then wait for Ry to get home :)
And this wraps it up !
I love you
see ya on Friday ,
For the Last time,

One of my Goals?
Well, I am really trying on "continual prayer". It has really helped me here in the last couple of weeks. I mean, Im a missionary, and at no other time in my life will i be able to always be thinking about my savior, so while i have the chance I should use it. So, I have been trying to always have a prayer in my heart, and when I have a still moment, in a train, or where ever, just to offer up a silent prayer or something. its pretty good and something im working on!

I set a goal after Thanksgiving to read the Book of Mormon in English before I go home, so that is 6 pages a day. So I start with that everyday. And for the first 1.5 years of the mission I read the German version and it took me forever! So it is cool to kind of read it faster this time and just get more of the story. There are so many things that you can study, that you sometimes forget about the plot. So yeah right now I am reading in the beginning of 3rd Nephi. And something that stuck out to me was how much satan tries to lead us away from the path, EVEN after spiritual experiences. These people had heard the words of prophets, seen signs and stuff and then they all turn wicked. Its amazing what can happen. So just because we have a spiritual experience doesnt mean that we are clear from temptation. I mean look at Jospeh Smith, or Moses. Each of them had incredible experiences with God, and then satan came and tried to steer them away. So yeah, after I read my 6 pages, I turn to PMG and study the lessons. Each day I study a new lesson. My favorite one is the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Its just so clear, and simple. So I do my study chart thing, study the pamphlet, and yeah. There is no need for missionaries to get any more in depth than what they are going to be teaching. So yeah that is pretty much it. :) its the best!Birthday wishs for his mom :)
