Chère Maman,Comment vas-tu? That is too bad that the hot tub hasn't been holding water. I'm sure you'll get it fix. Also, good to hear that Chelsea is doing well. It is always scary when things like that happen.
Je t'aime et passe une bonne semaine,Elder Corey Kimzey
How are you doing? LIfe in africa is doing pretty well. Lately i've been working on my culinary skills so that when i get home i can make you some african food. Although, some of the ingredients are going to be hard to find. Do you think we could find casava there? Happy anniversary too. Well, we don't really eat cake and ice cream that much. Sister Weed did make cake for us for Zone leader meeting a few times. We even ate it with Fan ice which is like ice cream. How was your anniversary? That is cool that i'm right next to Will. (in our stake offices there are pictures of all the missionaries serving, and Corey just moved to the top row or five rows!) How is he doing?
Wow, i can't believe how fast Jacob ran. Him and Daniel are like running gods haha. They seems not to even have to train and they run well. It is good to here that running is going well for you and mom too. Are you guys thinking of doing the Painter's half marathon?
That is crazy that Alec got switch to soman. I imagine that is pretty hard considering he will have to learn it in the field. Yeah, that would be crazy to have to learn fon or ewe. It is hard because it isn't much of a written language so it can kind of vary from area to area.
Thanks for the scriptures dad. Wow, i really like those scriptures on recieveing christ. I like how they explain how we can recieve christ and the blessings of recieving christ. The other day, i studied about the rest of God. It was intresting to see all the instances that God promises that if we respect the commandments that we will enter into the rest of God or in esssence live with him again. I've always like 3 nephi 27:19-20. Also i found another in Ecclatise or Ezechiel(i can't remember which) which talked about how we have to look at the old path we have taken to see if we are on the path that leads to the rest of God. I liked that one too. Also i have been studying in D&C also a little. I read some of the section about Oliver Crowdry and the translation of the plates. I didn't realize that he wanted to translate too. I had forgotten that. Also there was so cool scriptures that talked about having to humble oneselve so that God can give us gifts of the spirit. I thought that was intresting too.
Thanks dad also for answering my questions. I think your right that as a missionary the best thing that i could do to help the branch is to help recent converts and members have a testimony. Hopefully, i'll be able to share that in a our zone meeting tommorow. Also, i think your right in the fact that one of the best ways to do that is through the book of mormon. I've seen that many times, that recent converts that read the book of mormon often respect other commandments That is why they are going to(and have been dong in other branches) French class. It really helps people to learn french and be able to read the book of mormon. They even got promission to do it during Sunday School. It helps a ton.
This week has been a pretty good one. We found a lot of new investigators, so hopefully they'll keep progressing. Also recently we been able to teach whole families. Which has been hard to find on my mission. We been teaching a family that a member introduced us too. He is a pretty funny guy. He talks a lot but seems to be pretty intrested in our message.
Also we had a funny lesson with this women. We were explaining the apostasie and she said that she would totally go to the church of Jesus Christ if it was restored on the earth. Then we explained the restoration. She then told us that she was going to start coming to our church haha. It was kind of funny.
Well, i hope all is going well there dad. I love you a ton. You are an example for me,
