For those who were wondering why they didn't see a letter posted
from Elder Lundy last week...
We were busy on Monday the 21st trying to get set up to Skype
with Elder Lundy on Christmas.
And we were having a family reunion too...
We (Elder Lundy's Siblings and their Families)
had a wonderful conversation with him and he is doing well.
Elder Lundy Sends his Love to all his Family and Friends!
Skyping with Mom, Dad and the Family
This weeks Letter -
Alma 7: 10-13 " And behold, he shall be born of Mary, at Jerusalem which is the land of our forefathers, she being a virgin, a precious and chosen vessel, who shall be overshadowed and conceive by the power of the Holy Ghost, and bring forth a son, yea, even the Son of God. And he shall go forth, suffering pains and afflictions and temptations of every kind; and this that the word might be fulfilled which saith he will take upon him the pains and the sicknesses of his people. And he will take upon him death, that he may loose the bands of death which bind his people; and he will take upon him their infirmities, that his bowels may be filled with mercy, according to the flesh, that he may know according to the flesh how to succor his people according to their infirmities. Now the Spirit knoweth all things; nevertheless the Son of God suffereth according to the flesh that he might take upon him the sins of his people, that he might blot out their transgressions according to the power of his deliverance; and now behold, this is the testimony which is in me."
Jesus Christ is the best Christmas present that any of us could ever receive, and what's even better is that He was given to ALL of us for FREE. All we have to do to receive this gift is reach out and ask for it with sincerity.
It really sounds like you've had a full couple of weeks past and to come!
Tell Jacob congratulations for me!
OH! I forgot about this! On the way back to the casa after calling you, Elder Matos called me to say merry Christmas and to inform me that during his next interview with the president, he's going to request that we become companions and open an area! I hope it happens, because honestly, that would really help me develop as a missionary and develop my Portuguese skills.
Okayss I gtg now... I love you all!!
