What a trip. It’s true then, isn’t it? Luke is in BYU-I for real, I’m in another continent and the year is already ending. The temperatures are rising as we are set to enter Spring with a lovely average of 28-30ºC leaving us nice and sweaty as we preach the gospel of our Lord below the Argentine sun. It’s a beautiful thing, this work. It hurts me to see people reject the gospel for fear of not being able to live it fully. The fear of failure is the greatest fear of all. It haunted me for many a moon, but as I’ve learned to trust more in the Lord and recognize my potential as a child of God, I’ve been able to overcome my fears a bit and strive to do my best, trusting that He can help me with the rest. Oh that all people could come to that realization. Feelings of insecurity, loneliness, and low self-esteem would be eliminated from our lives. Nevertheless, agency has been established since before the creation of this world, and men are free to choose their own happiness. Like you, Mom, I am grateful for having been born in the covenant and for being able to receive my own testimony. What a gift it is.
It has been a fairly normal week. Angel and Virgilia are going to let us know tonight if they are good to go with an appointment to get married tomorrow. They came to church Sunday walking and loved it. They’re moving along just dandily. I self-operated an ingrown toenail with a razor blade and it’s healing just fine as well 🙂 There are pictures, but those can wait for a later date.
I remembered McKay’s birthday but forgot that I hadn’t sent him a shout out. So here it is: “CUMPLEAÑOS FELIZ, CUMPLEAÑOS FELIZ, QUE LOS CUMPLA MCKAY STEED WALKER, CUMPLEAÑOS FELIZ.” Kid, you’re a little giant and I love you. Take care of yourself, take care of your testimony, and love our family. You’re the man of the house now. Time to be the example.
I don’t know what to major in. The truth is I’ve been thinking quite a bit about studying law or business management. What I don’t know is what I would have to study to be a lawyer or what undergraduate program is best to follow. Help me out please.
I can’t believe there’s so little time left. I’m going to live it up to the max.
You’re all in my prayers, take care my friends.
