I had a very barbecue-filled week. I am very happy. I love the wonderful plan of salvation. I feel good about my mission even though I've made countless mistakes. In footnote b of Words of Mormon 1:7, we learn that God had Mormon include both the records of Lehi and of Nephi (even though they count the same story) because God was preparing a way for us to have these stories even though Joseph Smith and Oliver Cowdery's sin would cause the loss of the record of Lehi. While God does not tolerate sins, we can take comfort in the fact that he really does have an incredible knack for fixing things perfectly. If we are faithful, we will be testimonies of a perfect resolution for all of our worries. Even if that be on the last day, I testify that it will come.
Sorry for the short email. Next week I'll try to make more time!
LOVE YOU ALL!!!
