Long lost buddies found at the conference....Elder D-Ray!
With Sister Jenkins from St. George
Onto the real situation though.. How are you guys all doing? I feel so helpless here. After reading mom's email... I couldn't help but just let the tears stream. Oh grammy, what a sweetheart. Bless her little heart. I hope you know that I love you all so much. I hope that you can feel my love this week, but more importantly the love of a loving Heavenly Father who truly knows us individually. Also the love of our older brother, Jesus Christ. He knows how each one of us really feel because he has felt it all before. I am so grateful for the knowledge of the gospel.... the knowledge of the Plan of Salvation. My heart is with you guys this week. I am just sitting here thinking of what I could say... the truth is I don't know what to say. I have so many thoughts running through my mind that I honestly don't know what I could share with you guys. I only would like to bear my testimony that I know no matter what happens, everything will be okay. I know without a doubt in my mind that we have a Heavenly Father who has a plan for us.... his plan is perfect. Through this plan, we can feel happiness and sadness. At times we feel sad but there is a reason that this plan is called the Plan of Happiness. We are here on this earth to be happy... to become like our Savior, Jesus Christ. I am just grateful for my wonderful and loving grandparents, for all four of them. They have done so much for me and been such an example to me. My heart just aches because I just know how you all must feel. I love you all so much and hope that you give our grandparents my love. Give Grandpa and Grandma Abel my love when you see them next, and give my cute Grandpa and Grandma Taylor my love. I love you all and I miss you like crazy.
Keep smiling and have a wonderful week!
Love, Elder Taylor Bradley Abel
