Haha. ok I hope this goes through.

This week went by well. I got into a good habit of writing in my journal and I am having awesome studies lately. I want to know what you guys think of the word Zeal. How does it apply to us and what exactly does it mean? I had some cool thoughts.

Anyways, what kind of movies are coming out that people are liking? Is Josh going to Europe anytime soon! he will be closer to me than most other people. haha.

So here are some other questions for you guys:

1. How do you know when somebody is ready to be baptized? Obviously they need to have the desire but its more than that. How do you know that they understand fully the consequences of their decision? We teach a ton of youth and I don't think a lot of them understand the committment they make. How do you teach them meaning? haha I think that's something I could better myself with.

2. What is Faith exactly? And how do you show it? We all know the textbook response but what does it mean and how do you know if someone has faith?

3. Out of all the places that you have visited together (or separate) what has been your favorite or most impressionable and why?

How's that for questions? Well due to internet, my emails haven't been working out very well. But ya. Just to let you know, I'm not worried about tons of stuff with McCall but I am incredibly curious (as always). I just don't know how things work and I want to figure stuff out. So anyways, thanks for your advice and if I will keep you guys informed.

By the way, I realized that my driver's licence is going to expire before I get back so just randomly that's one of the things I will have to get worked out when I get back.

Ooh! One more good question. Favorite class in college? And why? it can be more than one.

anyways, I love you all and hope things go for the best! I hear Mitt Romney is going to run again and he has a lot of support so keep me posted!
