Excited for the Afterlife (Feb 16 2015)

hey fam! 
dad that is so cool that you get to have the next Face to Face youth broadcast with Elder & Sister Bednar! itll be awesome im sure, i just wish i could watch it.

so for the baptisms. we were able to have one which was emmanuel. enistena was sick and two of the other canidates need interviews. so this weekend we hope to have brights, mobys, enistenas, and rebeckas. we are really hoping and praying. it'll be so neat.

so this week was good. something really sad though. i saw a little girl, probably 7 or 8 or 9. she was just sitting in this bucket type thing crying. she was bathing and as we were passing moby said she had chicken pox. it was so sad. she didnt know how to handle them, and she was just by herself. so momma, thank you so much for taking care of all of us when we are sick. its so amazing to have someone who can just be there for you, take care of you, and comfort you. i just saw her and got so sad.

Elder snows birthday was fun. we ate a couple pizzas. they are soo expensive here. its crazy. but it was good. here they have a tradition where they will soak you with water on your birthday. usually with a bucket. so he got pretty wet.

teaching has been fun. i am learning a ton. i love it so much. even though we dont necessarily teach everything we learn, its still way fun. i dont know why im so excited for the afterlife. its just the sweetest thing. i have been studying a lot about the celestial kingdom and the celestial law and all that. one thought that gets into my mind sometimes is that im not good enough for the celestial kingdom. but i know that thought is of the devil. i know all of us can make it there. but its up to us. we have to decide how we will live. and from that we can shape ourselves to be worthy of living in the presence of Heavenly Father and the Savior. its so cool. and everything about having all knowledge and just not even having time be a thing. i seriously love the gospel. i love it so much. i just want all of my family to be together forever.

so i dont have much more to write. i love you all so much. stay sweet fam. i cant wait to see you in the far/near future.
