Do you want to hear a funny story? Lol so our gas got shut off last Monday. So for a week we haven't had any warm water. Honestly like our shower could not be any colder. It started as the worst thing in the world and one morning I showered while using disinfectant wipes because I was too cold to fully submerse myself in the frost machine known as our shower. Literally lol. But now I can just shower in it like a normal shower because I've mastered my physical body and it's weaknesses. So that's what I accomplished this week. Ta da. It's getting fixed today. Don't worry.
We had such a nice week this week! Our zone is literal fire right now. Like it's doing better than it has in a super super long time. We had three baptisms this Sunday and another 4 this next week. Marié is getting baptized this Saturday. Have I told you about her? I think so. If not then she's this 28-year-old Venezuelan girl. Honestly she is one of the most amazing people I've ever met. She's the best. She is considering moving to Salt Lake. We had this lesson with her last week in which basically ended in all of us crying after she said that she knows that the church is true. Man we love her. So that's happening this week! That's fun. You're fun. I love you.
I absolutely LOVED the talk you sent to me about Eve. I've shared it with a ton of people. Because I agree with it entirely. So I agree in your point about how Talmage was too hard on her because she was not the victim of impulsive desire but rather the initiator of the Father's plan in the mortal realm. I am a firm believer that everything that Eve did was a conscious decision to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man and woman. And we ought to admire her courage and faith instead of condemn her in any way. And the way the author (forgot her name) puts together the Priesthood and Childbearing together is completely true. Both equal powers and both cannot be used fully without the concept of unity between husband and wife.
Right now we're doing our laundry in this little hispanic laundromat. I'm going to send this to you now because we're finishing up and then we're going grocery shopping. I LOVE YOU. YOU'RE SO SWEET AND I LOVE YOU THE MOST A PERSON CAN LOVE.
Your boy, Jack
