Oh Mandy I forgot to thank you for your package! You will be getting a letter soon. So yesterday we had the Restoration fireside through music and it was awesome! I played a lot of the songs and I sang one as well. I didn't have that much time to practice but it all worked out. I made some mistakes but not many. :D It was very successful in that a lot if not all of the members invited a lot of their friends. The only unsuccessful thing was that not very non-members were there. I think there was three and one of them was singing a song. (which was awesome! He is an opera singer) I sang "Oh Lord, My Redeemer" and played as well. I was hoping to just sing it because I dont do that much and I want to get better at doing that.
We had a lesson with a part-member family and it was amazing! To see the Lord prepare this family, and it wasnt just a few days but years, and the change in them is humbling. I really learn that I am just a tool in Heavenly Fathers hands doing the work that he wants me to do. I had a member teach me amazing truth yesterday and the showed me that patience is implied in everything. It took him 6 years to learn this one thing.
Ha ha there is now James Bernard Mackey the 3rd. Is he a little guy? I want to see pictures! Send me one in the mail if you could! Yea for Adam! I hope he does go Spanish! How awesome! Man I am so jealous that he knows Spanish. I think I will need my one wisdom tooth that is halfway out pulled. who knows. Thank you for all your prayers! This week we sould be getting some snow. This is suppose to be the biggest storm this year. We did get snow last week and luckily we didtn have to bike in it! Well I need to go. Talk to ye'all later!
