He spent the day with his best friend Brianna and he went to say good-bye to the friends from Burke. Today was better than Christmas! I think Christmas was tuff, no "worldly presents" the money was all spent on "the mission". Reality has sunk in, and time running short - Christmas was brutal.
Tonight we went to the stake center to be "set apart" - a blessing to guide and bless Amric as he embarks on this next two years.
The things that stuck out to me were the comments about obedience. The idea that he should immediately start "opening his mouth" proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ. Tons of blessings if he is in tune and seeking after the spirit and in the mission will follow the rules. Also that he must communicate weekly with the parents, but he hesitated...(I'll be curious to see how he communicates) he said it was in accordance with the Mission President. Amrics spirit is humble and anxious.
Say your prayers for him and us!!! (teehe!) Tomorrow we are off Ayris, Amric and Us... to start brand new books not even new chapters! Hold on to your hats!!!!
