January 2- 9th


I loved the pictures! Thank you for sending them. Are you home yet?

Alright so this week was great. New Years Eve we went to a senior couple’s home, the Canons, and watched Narnia with a bunch of other missionaries. It was lots of fun. They fed us great food and pointed out all the doctrinal symbolism.  New Years day we were able to go back to brother wellingtons home. He is the man that wrote Lehis journey in the wilderness. We got indoctrinated for another 3 hours on ancient temples! Brother Wellington is an orthodontist and has done very well for himself. Sadly his wife passed away and all of his children are now grown up so he now has lots of time on his hands to research and study ancient history (he is probably only 50). He has so much knowledge and remembers it all, really he is an amazing man. There is now another book that I want to read and thankfully this one is only 60 pages. It is written by a woman named Margaret Barker, Temple Theology. She actually is not a member but has done lots of research on ancient temples and this book explains lots of the symbolism that we already believe that Joseph Smith has restored that most of the world has no clue about. She is a world renowned scholar and good friend of the church. Apparently she goes to BYU and gives seminars often. I look forward to sharing with you some of the things that she has discovered.

Alright I will keep this one short and to the point. Things are going great, still a little bit too fast but I love you all and hope life is wonderful!

Love, Richard
