Happy Heart

"Dear Family,

Parabéns mãe querida. Tomorrow is your birthday, and even though I can’t be there to give you a big hug and flowers I want you to know that I love you and that I hope you have a wonderful day. You are a wonderful mother and example and I thank my Heavenly Father for the wonderful family that He sent me to...We had a good week this week, It was very, very hot, but good. We had a few disappointments and setbacks but we aren’t discouraged. We are hard at work... I think that we are going to have to get used to short emails now, I have a lot more to do with time e-mail time now that I am zone leader, we get extra time too but it always seems to run out so fast. I love you all and I hope that you have wonderful week. I know that God lives and that he loves us. He sent his son to die for us. Jesus Christ is our loving Savior."
I left some stuff out but I don't know how much shorter his e-mails can get...

Ian sent an attached voice recording which was hilarious. It started out with he and his companion beat-boxing in Portuguese. It was great to hear them having a good time. They also sang Happy Birthday in Portuguese and Ian sang in English. He said Happy Birthday and  "You are my hero, I love you a lot and I miss you a lot."

Happy heart...Happy me.

  2. I've been thinking of you all morning my friend...You never forget me...I can never forget you.

    Love you back.

  3. I'm so sorry I deleted my post Liz! I wrote it thinking your post was from the 6th, then when I looked and saw it was from the 5th I thought you might not see my birthday wishes. I thought the whole thing would delete so I could leave it on the right day but instead it looks like I said something I didn't want to say and then removed it, but I did VERY much want to wish you the happiest of birthdays - and it looks like you definitely got that! Love you, Jeanne xox P.S. And I thought I was so computer literate! :)
