A Mother's Day call, spending time with family, and beautiful things in Germany

May 9, 2016

Elder Fisher during our Mother's Day video chat.
   The e-mail on that arrived on May 9th arrived the day after our Mother’s Day chat—our video chat time was 7:30 but by the time we got our technical issues worked out, it was close to 8 am.  It was good to see him and talk to him…and have all our family together at one time. 

Now for the email…..

   It was good being able to talk with you too, it was good to see everyone in the family too. I cannot believe how much C. and A. have grown and not just with height either. Thankfully, we do not have to worry about Skype not working again so that shouldn't be a problem. I enjoyed the call and, about the technical difficulties, you know me I'm easy.

A pretty sunset.
   I am amazed too, at how much time has passed.  I am still trying to work hard though, and not think about the time too much, because a missionary from my group mentioned how next month we only have 6 months left and I cannot believe it. I know I only have so much time left but I still feel like I have 2 years left.

   This past week we had 2 service projects and a ward activity. We got to meet a lot of ward members that we normally do not see and the spouses and children.

   This week we met a non-member friend of a member in our ward and that was cool, he was really funny and we did a service project with him so that was good.

   Today is my companion’s birthday and we are just going and looking at a bunch of stuff that he likes.

   Scripture of the week: Alma 56:47 “Now they never had fought, yet they did not fear death; and they did think more upon the liberty of their fathers than they did upon their lives; yea, they had been taught by their mothers, that if they did not doubt, God would deliver them.”

   Quote of the week: "mama always said life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you are going to get." Forest Gump.

   That is about it for this week, have a good week, I love you and love getting your e-mails too.
