August 13, 2012

Hey mom!!! It's so great to hear from you and hear that things are going good at home dispite things with grandpa.  Mom I can't tell you how proud of Carl I am.  That had to be a way hard decision and I'm really disappointed that none of the teammates stood up for him!!  It reminds me of Thomas S. Monson and his talk "Dare to Stand Alone" and the quote that I love from that and Carl was a perfect example of, Thomas S. Monson said
 " Dare to be a Mormon,
 Dare to stand alone,
 Dare to have a purpose Firm,
 Dare to make it Known!!!"
I can't tell you how grateful I am to have him as my brother and parents that taught us the way that God wants us to live our lives. Give him props for me!!
 Well mom I think going back to school will be great! I'm excited to hear how that goes!  Sage is finally going on a mission and Trevor and JD, and holy there is a lot of them! This will be way cool!! I can't remember, where is Ben Knight going again?  How is Alex Tracy doing? I hope they're doing good. 
 So in my new area I also have a new companion who is nothing like me.  He has a hard time keeping up with me on the bike it's kinda funny.  He says his bike is possessed (he's ripped the crotch out of 3 pairs of pants!!hahahaha) I think it's just him. He never learned how to ride a bike before.  He has just learned on the mission and sometimes he scares me out in traffic! We get honked at all the time and get yelled at and people are just great! ha ha!!  I have had 3 flat tires in the course on my stay here and it's only the end of week 2!!ha ha!! And yes a bike kit would be way nice. But to be honest I love it!  I love riding and working hard. The first little while in this area was way difficult to get up in the mornings but then I told myself I have to really show God that I'm about his work and I'm going to work to accomplish it.  It's said that "I looked for joy and didn't find it, then I went to work and found work is joy" . So this last week I have been doing even better than I have on my mission I am waking up at 6 instead of 6:30 so I can work on Spanish and also get my workout in. It's been good.  I feel so much better and I have so much more time to get stuff done.  Ever since I've been in this area I have cooked pancakes every morning with maybe some eggs and if I'm feeling up to it and if I have time I even throw some bacon on! It's been gooooooood!!!:)  Well mom this week has been a good one for the most part.  I have a very interesting companion but not only that he is also fluent he is native so it's been a little difficult when he points out all the errors I make in my Spanish especially in front of investigators!   So, I have been learning even more patience, but I love the kid.  I feel I have been able to help him out a lot but I'm not sure, we'll see.  This area is great we are getting it going so it's coming!  Well mom I best get going I hope everything is going good with you and the family. Also, how is your health mom?  I worry about that a lot.  I hope all is well.  Mom I love you sooo much and I look forward to hearing from you next week!! 
Love Elder Henze
