The Flavor-May 4

Querida familia,

Buenos Dias.  Como estan?  Muy bien. Han leido sus escritas hoy?  Muy bien.  Que tal sus oraciones?  Han orado mañana Y noche diario? Hoy?  Muy bien.  Sacaron un 20 hoy.  Bueno, vamos a hacer una oracion y hoy dia les voy a compartir un mensaje sobre El Plan de Elder Walker.

This week I complete 5 months remaining.  Seems so far away yet so close.  My body hurts haha.  I could really use a real P day or one of those Korean back massages.  But relax, I'm not trunky!  Honestly the closer it gets, the more energy and animos I'm recuperating.  I want to end my mission 100% ruler.  Not that I'm not a ruler right now, I'm demaciado ruler.  But my last 2 changes, I've already committed myself to be the perfect missionary I've wanted to be my whole mission.  Pero aun faulta....

Highlight of my week- my converts!!  Its hard managing 9 converts from last month and trying to keep baptizing.  But the ward is actually helping.  my happiest moment was sitting in sacrament meeting yesterday and seeing all their smiling faces.  None of them inactive yet.  But the coolest part was watching sister Lurdes and sister Jacquelin stand up ,and for their diligent faith, be called to be the 1st and 2nd counselors of the Relief Society!!!  Subes!!!  WOW!  They're now golden converts.  Almost cried.  Almost.

Our only fecha right now is the sister of Esther, se llama Elsa.  Even though shes 9000 years old, all the kids on the block know her as "El Sabor"  ("The Flavor")  LOL!!  Disgusting.  but hilarious.  She's actually tight!  She jokes around a lot and loves the teaching.  She's my companion's snake haha.  She wants to go to Honduras so bad. xD

One thing I'll miss from the mission is having a companion.  No matter how bad the day goes, we always stay up in bed talking at night and just laugh about everything.

Well that's all folks.  Mom send me the questions from last week again because I lost them haha.  Include them in a separate email porfa.  About Mommy's Day, it should be Sunday like around 3 pm, but I'll call ya'll don't worry.  Tranquilo.  But please all try to be on the same computer, none of this mom from the living room, craig in the kitchen, dad in the shower, etc.  Ruins the connection.  But all friends and family are invited porsercaso ;)  If ya'll wanna see the new and beautiful Elder Walker- talk to my mommy to get on the list!!

Con Amor,
Elder Water

PS.  Answer to last weeks quesh!  Whats the original purpose of the Melchizedek Priesthood?  Bueno, I should have phrased it better- Whats the original purpose of the Melchizedek Priesthood for man?  We already know what it is and what it does, but that's not why it was originally given to man.  2 scriptures to answer your troubles.  John 17:3 first, then D&C 84:19-22. Gods "work and glory" is "to bring about the immortality and eternal life of man" (Moses 1:39).  No one can have eternal life if they're not with God.  John 17:3.  Thus no man could "see the face of God and live" without the Melchizedek priesthood.  That is God's original purpose in giving man the priesthood.

PSS.  Quesh of the week!!  Did unicorns really exist? (such as in Job 39)  Many biblical creatures existed that are nowadays extinct.  

PSSS. To answer Dad's question- what is the condescension of God spoken of is 1 Nepi 11:16?  Well if you could reading, in 11:26-27 it says the answer.  And in Mosiah 15:1-3(-9).  Its basically that God himself came down from Heaven in his perfect state and took upon himself the form of of man, to save man, something worthless, from its lost and fallen state.
