Birthday Boy!

Elder Lacey a couple of days before he turned 21
I found those party plates in the kid birthday party section in Walmart.
They were perfect for a missionary birthday too.

Dear Family,

I'm old. I can't believe that I'm almost 21! It is going to be a good birthday week because I love this ward! We had 6 investigators in church and we are seeing miracles. Sandra and Sofia are going to get baptized this Saturday and we are working a ton with Gustavo who is a dad of an active family. We are really good friends with him and he is starting to get interested in the message. His family is working a lot with him and it is amazing how far he has come. He came to church this Sunday and he is reading and everything. They are an awesome family.

I got all of the packages but I haven't received the letter yet. Thanks! All of those protein bars are going to help me because I realized that I am skinny! I was looking through the pictures that you sent me and I look fat compared to where I am now haha! Thanks for sending those pictures as well. That was cool to look through all of them.  Did you ever get the letter that I sent you for your Birthday? Also, for the Spanish class do I need to take the class in order to take the test or is it just so that I pass the test really well? And it is an advanced class right? 

Lately I found a connection in the scriptures that I love. John 17:3- Eternal life is to know God and Jesus Christ. Luke 24:30-31 How did the disciples "know" Christ? Through the sacrament. In order to obtain salvation we need to really know our Savior. Not just his face or his appearance but actually know who he is. The only way we can do that is by taking the sacrament every Sunday and repenting of our sins and remembering him. 

I know my Savior. I know that he loves us and is there to help us through every step in our lives. He is the only way we can gain Eternal life and Eternal life is what we are looking for (D&C 6:7 ; 14:7)

I love all of you!

Dear Dad,

Time flies when you are doin work! So we must all be doing way to much work cause the time surely is flying. The good thing is that I am not trunky at all. The missionary work is just so natural now that there is no time to be trunky. I love working with all of our investigators.

I feel exactly like usted. I don't want to leave! But I also know that there is a lot of work for me to do up there in the States. 

I love all of those plans that you have for me. I don't need sleep! haha! One of these P-days in the future I will make a little calendar and send a picture of it because there are a few things that I will need to do when I get back. But I am totally down to work out a ton and work with those trainers. It will be a good time.....I am so skinny!

I love you dad!

Elder Lacey
