So it sounds like everything at home is wonderful :) It's nice every week to get the emails from you guys, and I always love geting the weekly letter with the pictures :)
Hey Troy! I hope your arm gets better dude :)
I hear that you're really "fun" to watch play basketball (Luke mentioned ADD) and I heard you're super good :)
Do you know how to swim yet? You have to replace me next year, so you can carry the family on your back :)
Katie :) I absolutely loved the craft :)
You have to kick butt at the thanksgiving football weekend, and don't hurt those boys too badly :)
I hope you're enjoying your last year at Simons Valley. How's being the top dog?
Luke! Why did you let the Cowboys beat you by so much :P
How was the Swordfish awards? Did you take my tropies :P Cause your name will be on there soon, you'll be the start of the Bester Dynasty :)
What does your school year look like for sports?
Jordan! Swerve, Swaggy, Yo ish, Yall freeze in this ish, trifecta, beezwheat, yilk silk kilk... "hulk" lucky!
Anyways that's all I can remember at the moment :P
I love you bro, work hard dud, I miss you like cray.
Mom & Dad I'm so grateful for everything you've taught me & given me :)
Well guys I really love the MTC, I'm really going to miss thanksgiving, we can't play football. We can't even play touch rugby! How bogus is that!
Oh Jordan! Guap!
Anyways I love you guys :)
We were told to make sure when you write home to mention spiritual experiences.
So I'll write a bit about what I call "simple testimony"
From week 1, the strongest part of my lessons was always my testimony. For a long time this was what my testimony was.
Saya tahu Kitab Mormon benar
I know Book of Mormon true
Joseph Smith nabi bugi Tuhan
Joseph Smith prophet for God
Geneja Yesus Kristus orang suchi zamm akhir benat!
LDS church true!
You get the idea, basic words, "caveman talk" but there was no sugar coating, no elegant words, pure testimony, and going back to the simple roots has really strengthened my testimony.
Along side has been my Book of Mormon reading, which I'm in Helaman now since I got to the MTC.
I encourage you guys to read the Book of Mormon as much as you can :) I got a picture with Adam like 10 minutes ago... So I'll send that home eventually.
Ima write my testimony in Malay, it's gonna be brutal spelling, so Google Translate might not pick it up ha ha.
Saya tahu Kitab Mormon lebih bethul bahawa semun buku lain. Saya sayang Kitab Mormon, dan tahu Kitab Mormon membonta saya.
Saya tahu gereja Yesus Kristus orang suchi zaman akhir benal, dan saya tahu sudikit atau kecil bahasa malaysia, tetapi saya tahu banyakhal tentang injil dari bapa Syurgawi dan saya sayang Yesus Kristus dan Korban Tebusan nya
Dalam namn Yesus Kristus
(So far, here's my translation. Not sure if the problem is the spelling or the handwriting!)
I know the Book of Mormon more bethul that semun other books. I love the Book of Mormon, and I know the Book of Mormon membonta.
I know the Church of Jesus Christ suchi Benal last days, and I know sudikit or small malaysia language, but I know about the gospel of banyakhal Heavenly father and I love Jesus Christ and his Atonement
In namn Jesus Christ
I love you guys. Miss you tremendously.
ps. Even on pdays I'm super busy, sorry it's only 6 pages. I have so little time ha ha, I might send my journal home before I leave the MTC, I've written around 120 pages... so it will be full before I'm done here
p.s.s Could you send something to hold letters etc in? like a binder...
