If anyone is feeling sad, stop. Forget about yourself. The only times we really are sad are when we're thinking about ourselves. When we focus on others, that's when happiness comes. Everything is a choice. Literally. Everything.

Que pasa mufasa?
How is everyone, good? I'm glad! It's been a strange and tiring week for Elder Packer as he has been in Sinton for 4 of the last 7 days, Robstown for one night, and then going hard in George west the next couple days in order to catch up from not being able to work from Monday to Thursday. But strange weeks always lead to fun experiences, so it's all good.
This week I got to spend some time with Luther in Sinton again, which was awesome because he's such a cool dude, he had us try on a bunch of his old 80s stuff, and I do have pictures for those that are curious. Just think...ABC...I think...anyways, that was cool, and I also got to meet the famous Gutierrez family that have been friends with the missionaries ever since they got baptized last year, and they take them out to eat and are just really cool people. It was a lot of fun. But don't worry, we did a lot of work in Sinton as well, there are a bunch of people there that have potential to be baptized.
We didn't get to work too much this week in George West because we were gone until Friday, and the majority of Friday ended up being planning to take in what my comp learned in 3-day and put it into effect for our area. So that was that, and then on Sunday i got to speak in church with a member of the stake high council.That was pretty fun, he was an awesome man, going to retire from the navy in 2 years.
I Don't really have much else to say, except that this morning in Personal Study I was studying chapter 6 in PMG, (Christlike Attributes) and i got an overwhelming feeling of just plain comfort and peace. It was really awesome, and I wanted to suggest to you all that you do the attribute activity at the end of the chapter to see where yall are at. Then pick one of them to really focus on this week, and I can promise you that you will feel something special as you study that attribute and work to develop it more.
Anyways, that's about it! I hope yall have a great week!Love Yall!
