Letter from 11-3-08
that means forgiveness- which is something that i am going to need from you guys.
i had to pass all the numbers to the office today and fix the site of references
AND finish an assignment from the president- so you guys got put on the back burner. now i have an appointment with a guy to rent a new house here. which means that i needed to leave and get on a bus about 30 min ago. i am pretty late. i will use my pday today getting everything organized for the new house. so i will have to be really short.
the only thing that i really wanted to write today is about one of the coolest experiences of my life. on Thursdays last week we had this SWEET conference with elder richard g scott. HOLY SMOKES!!! after that conference he had a meeting with just the zone leaders from the mission. WOW AGAIN!! he had an incredible spirit about him that filled the room. he speaks funny portuguese, but it was great to be so close to one of the Lord’s anointed. i imagined myself in the presence of peter, james or john. this is a REAL apostle!
i will try and re write a lot of the stuff that i learned in a letter and mail it to you guys this week.
well, i was serious, i gotta go.
love elder helland
PS good luck with the election. remember "shall we not go on in such great a cause..?." whatever happens- the Lord is in control, and we are in His church, on His service, and being guided by His prophets. maybe, like with zions camp, we just have to endure faithfully no matter what for the campaign to be a success. "its true isn’t it?... then what else matters?"
