Here is a picture we took of Elder Clarke while we were skyping with him on Christmas Eve:
I asked each person in our family to write down 3 things they learned this past year to include in our family Christmas letter. This is what Elder Clarke sent to me to share in our letter:
1. I`ve seen miracles on a daily/weekly basis, and I know God`s hand has played a part in it. I have also arrived to truly comprehend the principle of faith. Faith can truly work miracles. It`s a divine power we can use, given from our Heavenly Father. Faith = power.
2. I have come to consider and appreciate my family - especially my parents - as one of my greatest blessings in this life.3. I`m currently working on developing true Christ-like love for everyone, and being more humble. I have loved and learned from every one of my companions. Elder Roger Whitcomb and Elder Anderson Rich have especially made a big impact on me and are heroes of mine.
Foods I`ve grown to love: Chiceme, patacones, piña panameña, maracuyà, guanabana, avena, and ojaldres. :)
