Yaateeh shi'qee (my family)
Well how was everyone's week? Our was pretty good here in wonderful Crownpoint! Last week I had to speak at that funeral. They had a man talk on the Plan of Salvation in Navajo so I had no clue what he said. They asked me to just give some words of encouragement, whatever that means. So I shared a scripture from Alma chapter 40 that talks about the spirit word, and how one day we will all be reunited. I hope I didn't repeat anything that the man said. For the part about comforting and encouragment I just talked about how we have memories and we should cherish them and remember those that past on, but be comforted to know we will see them again. Speaking of funerals, we had dinner with some members the other night then on Saturday night the branch President called to ask us is we could speak. He old us that the daughter-in-law of the poeple we ate with, she was actually their and ate with us got in a car accident and passed away. We couldn't believe it we had just eaten dinner with this lady and now she was gone. It just goes to show youi never know what will happen and something takes you life, so are you living everyday so that you can return to live with Hevenly Father?
We had Zone Conference this past week. It was really good. President Jones came and interviewed us here on Wednesday then the conference was in Gallup on Thursday. We had a good interview he talked to me about how I can help my companion. I have coe to find out that the Polynesian people are kind of slow moving. He also told me he looked up where I live on the internet. He said he wanted to see where I raised my animals at. We talked about the animals and I told him how that was one thing I miss about home, but I was like they will be there when I get back. He jokeingly said he didn't feel bad because he has been waiting 17 years to get back to his animals. When he was called to the seventy he had to walk away from it. But our conferene was really good. We talked alot about finding. Which is something that we really need to work on so it was really good. We compared our mission numbers to the other southwest mission's and the rest of the missions in the United States. We were alot better in some and a lot worse in others.
Dad you asked about any Pioneer celebrations. Their are not any here in Crownpoint, but there is a big one down in Ramah which is near the Zuni reservation. They have a rodeo and big parade and everything. Then their is another one down by Grants but not here.
Well I hope you all have a wonderful week! Take care! I love you all!
