The Will of God

I watched a Mormon message that has like changed my life. It is called “the will of God” and it is crazy powerful. You all need to go watch it right now. Everyone always talks about how God gives us trials to help us become better people. Which is true. But I never hear about him giving us trials because maybe he just doesn’t like the path that were headed towards and wants to change it before it gets too late. I watched it like 20 times and it gets better every time. Anyway, just a cool thought.  I hope I haven’t given impression that I thought Germany was going to be easy, but that is not what I have in mind. I am fully expecting to “get kicked in the teeth” and all that stuff. Yeah I’m way pumped to get to Germany but I know it’s gonna be harder than I can imagine. This last week we are going to have one German teacher and one English teacher. Pretty normal schedule really.

Love, Henry

BEDNAR. Holy cow. “And I invite you to come and see” *mic drop* *walks off stage* soo sick. That was probably my favorite talk. Did anyone else think some huge announcement was coming after that first session? I was freaking out it was so scary. And Monson didn’t crack one joke all weekend. Things were a little off it seemed. Hey, I wonder what political party Christopherson belongs too… (Wink wink) any way, still sick. it was all basically just like, “you’re all slacking and doing bad stuff and not trying, it’s time to follow the prophet and live up to the standards of the church and stop making sorry excuses for why you’re not doing what you’re supposed to” so ya, pretty weird seeing everyone at priesthood. Sorry if it didn’t look like I was excited, but they were super strict about us making gestures towards out family. But it was a little hard. I’ll be alright though. I knew dad would spot my pocket square. Some tool tried to tell me to take it off cause it would catch the cameras attention…..DUH. But it was a cool experience. My watch is sooo sic too! I love the rose gold and navy blue. And did you really think I was gonna throw myself a bday party at the MTC?? “Hey everyone come in my room and celebrate my bday with me!” I don’t think so. But I did, very  much appreciate the thought and effort, mom. I’m glad I at least got some camera time, I got totally screwed with the whole top row far right thing. And the kid next to me tried telling me I was flat. I didn’t even look at him. But we did eat the cake mom. Demass and Glissmeyer (the Alta kid) picked the lock to an empty room where no one is living and we call it “Babylon” cause its where we go to get way from everyone and talk about the outside world. Pretty fun stuff. Nice to have a few people that are similar to me. Anyway, it was a good week for sure. Love you all. I miss Elizabeth a ton.

MTC Week #3

Another week in the books! So crazy it’s been 3 weeks. And really? Lip syncing dad? My voice was made for bass. Our choir sounds so good, and our main song is gonna melt the faces of everyone at Priesthood, it’s so sick. This week went by pretty fast actually. We fasted on Sunday and it was the first time I fasted for a whole 24 hours. Pretty awesome and definitely received answers to my prayers. DeMass is the man. Sometimes he gets super homesick and misses his “wife” but it’s all good. We’re like the only ones in the zone that don’t have a problem with each other. I love the mail! The dear elders are awesome and I love the packages. (So do my roommates).  Keep them coming! Every time I get down I just think of how awesome Germany is gonna be and I can’t wait to see Adam. My German is coming along. We’re now teaching lessons without any notes. It’s pretty cool. I still obviously miss home a ton and basically everything about it. But what can I do? Priesthood session is gonna be soooooo sicky. Seriously. And GC this weekend is gonna be awesome. I can’t wait to actually listen. Praying is also awesome. I made a goal to pray once an hour and I love it. So many blessings are being poured on me and I can’t be grateful enough.

Love, Henry
