October 20, 2014 Letter...

Hey Family!  Hope you had a good week!

Don't stress about doc and all that. It's not your problem. Yeah continue helping, but sometimes you need to think about yourself and not so much of others. LOL. Usually it's the other way around, right? But in your case, you are a perfect mom and woman, you only think about others! That's what I love about you. Dad, and all us boys are beyond lucky. Honestly I can't describe how lucky we are to have a mom like you. I don't know how dad pulled you off to be honest.. hehehe. But really, you care so much about others, and pleasing others, and I love that about you. You have been that way ever since I can remember. Whenever us boys wanted to do something, no matter how tired or whatever you were, you did it. You would go out with us, or go to the store with us so we could buy something, or just whatever. These qualities are something that I admire, mom. But remember, sometimes you gotta think about yourself, and what things you need:)

HAPPY LATE BIRTHDAY DAD!! I LOVE YOU!!! I hope you had a good birthday! Did you get anything cool? A spank on the rumpkin? I'm glad to hear your guns are coming along! And in all honesty with my gun, make it look as cool as possible with the colors, I want black, and maybe tan or FDE. Idk, whatever looks cooler and sweeter. I prefer probably a darker green. But like I said, make it awesome. I love you dad and I think about you a lot. Keep working hard always and the Lord will bless you. Mom and dad, remember personal scripture study:) you´re never too cool to read the word of God!

Fun to hear about those movies.. I like movies.. but don't get to watch any. I watch The District which is missionaries preaching in real life, recorded on cameras. Yeah it's like I'm watching myself in real life; not that entertaining, lol.

This week, not too much happened. Sorry for my bad English, though. My English sucks now and so does my Spanish.. haha. I don´t know what happened. I've been reading my Book of Mormon only in spanish and it's amazing. I love it. I have also been reading the New Testament. Right now I'm in Juan. The New Testament is my comic relief for the day. I honestly don't know if this is sacrilegious, but I think it's kind of comical when Jesus is trying to teach His disciples a parable or something, and they take him literally and don't understand.. and they are just bewildered and like.. what just happened? What did he say?

For example:
 11 These things said he: and after that he saith unto them, Our friend Lazarus sleepeth; but I go, that I may awake him out of sleep.
 12 Then said his disciples, Lord, if he sleep, he shall do well.
 13 Howbeit Jesus spake of his death: but they thought that he had spoken of taking of rest in sleep.
 14 Then said Jesus unto them plainly, Lazarus is dead.
Jesus is talking about bringing Lazuras back to life... but His disciples thought Jesus was talking about waking Lazarus up from a nap.. and they were like, wait why are you gonna wake him up? Aren't naps good? Then I imagine Jesus face palming... Then clearly saying, you fools, he´s dead. I'm not being literal.

This happens so much in the New Testament and it makes me giggle. They understand, but not until the Savior teaches them.

What else happened this week...? Not much. Taught a lot but very few receive what we teach. It can be difficult. Especially when I can't understand their needs that well. Continually pray for people here that we will find people that are prepared of the Lord. The importance of following the spirit is the most important thing. I´m learning everyday how to follow it more, and how to better listen.

Tomorrow is cambios (transfers)! I won't be transferred but I might get a new comp.. we´ll see what happens!

I love you guys have a killer week!!!

Love,
Elder Cluff
