Called to Serve

"Therefore, if ye have desires to serve God ye are called to the work ... and faith, hope, charity and love, with an eye single to the glory of God, qualify him for the work." - D&C 4:3-5

Janel's Note:  David wrote about our new little puppy so I thought it would be fun to add a picture of the darling little puppy with Michelle.  Scott found her on KSL.  Michelle named her "Jessie."

hola familia. well first of the day got changed so thanks for sending me an email. second off, how come no one told me about clark!!! ?? make sure you tell me his email addresss where is he going and mckenna is going on one too? wow that is so crazy. when does Clark leave and make sure you send me his email address too. and also keep me updated on Mckenna. well i am super happy to hear about all the new changes. its pretty cool to see in the pic that mother took of trevor that you can see number 44. except the fact that he isn{t playing. i guess no one wants to take 44 again haha. and that is pretty cool about the puppy too!  i was just thinking about how i would like to have a dog again haha and then i saw the picture and that’s pretty exciting. well this week was good. we didn{t really get a chance to work and this week we will be training other missionaries and we have to go to costco to buy a bunch of tablesso the week will probably go by pretty slow and i will feel a lot more tired. i ususally feel more tired when we don’t do a lot of proselyting . but the training was really good. if there was one part i could share with you it would be about the santa cena. if you guys have the chance, read the part in pmg about keeping the sabbath day holy.  it some pretty big promises there and some pretty big consequences. it is in chapter 3 lesson 4 when it talks about the commandments. and also you should read in john 6 where it talks about Jesus being the bread of life. he says dont work for things that perish, but work for the things that give you eternal life. the sacrament is so important. it is one of the most important ordinances that we do in our lives and we have the opportunity to do it every week. try to get to sacrament meeting prepared and go with a broken heart and contrite spirit and every week you will have a super strong experience. well thats all i have to say to you guys. love ya lots

mother that is super cool about the pictures.  It reminds me of the pics you took when i played. my last comp was from florida. elder zack tayloris from atlanta. 

michelle that’s a pretty dress for homecoming. I’m glad you liked it. one of my favorite foods is frijol con puerco. i actually do like beans. rice...only if they dont give us a lot of food then i will eat it. i am tryihng to learn how to makethe food so i can make it when i get home. there is alot of good food here but it is some of the greasiest food in the world. like most people say that normal mexican food is greasy, but even mexicans that come here from other parts say this food is even more greasier haha well adios

papa, thats cool about the atonement. i love talking about it. in jacob 4 12 it talks about learning about the atonement you should learn about it more because it is the most important part of our doctrine. and i like the long letters so you can write longer ones if you like. i guess sometimes there’s not a lot to be said but all well. let me know how the players for the raiders are doing like darren mcfadden and tyrel pryor. adios 

love elder coffman
