Week 26

Querida Hermana Lutze,

Estamos contentos con las cosas estamos esuchando de ti! Esperemos que esta semana fue muy bien!

Yes, it was crazy busy as usual. We came home Sunday from St. George and turned around and left for Goblin Valley on Thursday with lots of work at work and at home in between. It was Spring break for the kids and we finally made it to Goblin Valley with the Millers. We hiked Little Wild Horse Canyon which was an awesome slot canyon! Of course, Hannah hiked it on crutches in her boot! She was determined to go! We spent time in Goblin Valley as well, playing in the Hoodoos... We walked between them, climbed on them and played a few games like monster tag and sardines. We, of course, missed having you there but know you are where you need to be! We're so proud of your dedication and hard work! We found out last night that Alexandra is pregnant with a little girl. So you will have another little cousin when you come home. She's due in November. :)

I want to know more about your rebellious phase? What were you terrified of?

I've been reading in Helaman and eventually 3 Nephi. Emily was telling us that these two books also actually speak of our day and what will happen before the Second Coming of the Lord. It's really interesting to read them with that in mind and to see how it is happening in front of our very eyes. I was thinking of you and all missionaries as I read Helaman 5:8. Helaman's desire for his sons as they preached the gospel... "That ye may not do these things that ye may boast, but that ye may do these things to lay up for yourselves a treasure in heaven, yea, which is eternal, and which fadeth not away; yea, that ye may have that precious gift of eternal life." and of course 5:12 is one of my all time favorite scriptures... "And no, my sons, remember, remember that is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall." He goes on to relate that they taught with POWER and AUTHORITY in verses 17 and 18. As you know, you too, were given that power and authority when you were set apart as a missionary!

We love you!
