This was a very low key week so I won't say too much, if anything. I made a excel program to track all missionaries numbers by the individual so that you can track them over their mission. I don't know how much value it will be but President Bunnell was adamant about having it. Nice to have that done!
Wednesday I had the most perfect Belgium trip ever. Making up for the disaster that last week was! It was so perfect, that one of the Greenies asked why I looked so concerned and I could only answer "because no Belgium trip has ever been this perfect, so I'm not sure what to think" It was a very refreshing day!
I'm pretty proud of myself right now as I have now read the Book of Mormon everyday for the last month! Even on a mission I've never had a streak like that. Probably sad to admit but I'm making progress in developing those converting habits! Even Sister Bunnell said I seemed so calm over the last month, which is a huge difference after the stress mess that i was before that! Basically the church is true!! :)
Love you all!
Elder Talyon Anderson Perry
Mom note: they received a Thank you note from Farah's Mom whom they met with last week, which I thought was very sweet and so I've included that as well...
I thank you kindly for gracing our home with your presence.
Thank you also for the book it's a gift I shall treasure.
Your prayers and blessings mean so much to me as a Mom
to this home, I am ever so proud of you. Do please convey
my deep admiration of how you as young boys are representing
your faith. My intense admiration go out to your parents, the gift
of your upbringing. Be proud of yourselves. I admire and
applaud everything you do and will achieve in life.
Your religion is admirable, the purity, sincerity and simplicity it
portrays. In this day and age with excess of everything, we need
pure and basic. As I mentioned to you, "There is a Mormon in
Every Human Being" They all need to tap into it.
I close with blessings in abundance, keep doing well and we
shall definitely keep in touch. Do please remember to pick up
your academic studies as well. The combination for you all is
the secret of success. My gratitude to your wonderful parents
to bring up such dignified boys, a dream of every parent. As
a teacher this is a joy to see. I wish all children would be like
you both. I pray for the stars to shine in your paths.
I close with kindest regards,
Miss Bibi Farah's Mom
