Dear Family & Friends -
Below is Elder Coffman's latest email. If you didn't already hear, last week while doing his laundry David put a red towel in with his whites! Needless to say, they all turned PINK! The remedies we sent didn't work and Sister Sagers was working with him also - with no luck. So a lesson was learned and looking back, it will be a good mission story. Thanks so much to the Parkinson's and their generous help in replacing those items! Thanks also to Anne and the suggestions and support.
Also, as you'll read below, Stephen jumped right on the request for hymns and talks in Spanish and we're mailing those out today.
Have a great week and take care.
The Coffman Family
Mother, thanks for the advice about my clothes. Good job with your phlebotomy class. I am always going to pray for you (: I liked it when I saw the words “pink shirts” in pink jaja it was really funny. But I’m really grateful for our families and I always tell our investigators that this is one of the most important things to me, that I know without a doubt I can live with my family forever with my Heavenly Father. God has given us all the things we need to return, but He doesn’t want us to do it alone. That’s why we have a family. I love you Mother.
Michelle!!!! Little trickster!!!! jajaja jk but what is open mike night? Is it during school or what? But you can sing really well. Don’t be afraid hermanita (little sister) (: I know it is important not to judge others also. This is the Work of Jesus Christ because He knows everything we do with a perfect knowledge. I love you hermanita. Do you still want to serve a mission? Bye.
Papá (Daddy), that’s really good for Parker. And that is really funny about Russ also. I never thought he would say something good about BYU, but he did it jaja and muchos nosotros!!!! wowow gluton jaja but we don’t do anything besides the Work on p-days. We just write and clean and other such things. I don’t like p-days a lot. I just like working. But I know they are necessary. You can see these videos in lds.org also. I like it a lot. And good job with the Book of Mormon. That’s a great blessing in our lives and we should delight in the scriptures like Nephi. I love you.
¡Hermanito! How are you doing? I am going to send Alma a letter this week. And I have a testimony that God has a plan for every one of His children because I have seen a lot of miracles that happen by means of things which are, seemingly, coincidences. I love this work and thanks for your advice. Maybe you could send me more music in Spanish, like Hymns, etc... and CDs with general conference talks in Spanish because I need to hear the language. That’s that hardest part for me. Sometimes I can’t understand what people are saying. I am trying to watch movies about the Restoration, etc… in Spanish, but it’s hard. Especially with women and children jaja but what helped you with this? Bye.
