You do not even know how good it was to see all the fam on Skype last night! Elder Griffeth and I were talking while walking to Brother Campera's house and it was the most antsy we had ever felt before Skype and S/O to the Family Campera for letting us Skype at their house, they were so cool about it and every time we tried to thank them Brother Campera would just reply with a , "For what? Cmom!" haha. So, all in all it was a great time! After I hung up I remembered that totally forgot to say some stuff to y’all. Like one happy birthday to Wrenly, Elliot, Grady and Diem! And two, Happy Mother’s Day to all the Mothers in the fam! I said it at the beginning but forgot to wish to you all individually. But shoutout to mothers!
Not much too update on cause we kind of talked about most of it last night, but everything is going great. On Thursday, we had a division with the AP's and I had the chance to walk with Elder Fuchs (he is going to be famous one day) and then it was just a normal week of finding and teaching. We are super excited for Nelio, the brother of Suzy who is a recent convert. He is pumped for his baptism on the 27th and he has loved learning about all the commandments and learning more about the Book of Mormon with each visit. And if everything goes to plan, we should be having the baptism for Junior as well that day so it will great.
For a spiritual thought, I have been pondering a lot about how when our lives become more focused and centered on Jesus Christ how much easier our lives are. Easier not in the terms of us not having problems or trials but easier meaning that we will forgot about ourselves and look outward, feeling and embracing more light and love in our lives. And with yesterday being Mother's Day how important mother's play a part of life and us coming to know Christ. In Elder K. Brett Nattress Conference talk last October he talked about how his mother had a special goal written while he was growing up to "be patient with Bret" and I felt like I can relate to this story a little bit too much haha. And it just makes me feel so much more grateful for all the women that are in my life that have helped me come closer to my Savior, Jesus Christ. And in the top spot, is the famous, Barbara Jean Chipman! Mom, thank you for all that you have done and all that you do! I hope that you can feel the greatest joy of knowing that I, and all the Chipman squad, know that our Savior lives.
Love you all!
