Dear Family --
I don't know how, but I always think of more things to write you after I'm done with my emailing. . .
I guess I actually AM allowed to get mail sent to me. You're just supposed to send mail through the mission office if it's close to transfers because if I get moved my mail will take 6 more weeks at least to get to me. . .
Here's a lesson in speaking Kentuckian: Make all 1 syllable words 2 syllables and make all 2 syllable words 1 syllable. For example:
Town ---> Tay-own
Helping ---> Hepn ('n' is silent)
Instead of saying "said" you say "hollerin'."
Instead of saying "you" plural you say, "yuns."
And you don't say "he chews tobacco," you say, "he dips."
[To get] more spiritual: I've realized this week that daily prayer and scripture study is not a suggestion but a REQUIREMENT of those Saints who intend to endure to the end.
. . . The Ensign is awesome and . . . it is modern scripture. I loved, in the April 2011 edition, Elder Bruce R. McConkie's talk on the Savior. It got me wondering though - Why did Christ have to suffer the pains of the Atonement in Gethsemane AND on the cross? Any ideas from Dad or maybe Grandpa?
Also, I liked what that lady said she does with the General Conference edition where she writes a quote for each day to read until the next General Conference. I think I'm going to do that.
I'm sending pictures next week.
The Church is true! share it!!
Love Sis. Nelson
