January 23, 2012 (to Jordan in MTC)

Well that´s cool to hear that you are liking the food and the MTC.  I was kinda worried but it seems like things are going well.  You are off to a great start.  I liked your letter, just make sure ot keep that humor up because that will help with your spirits and animo.  AND I SHOULD HAVE KNOWN YOU´D FIND A LOOPHOLE, such a schmoozer, even with computers ha ha. 

Well I don´t know what else to share since you didn´t ask any questions so I´ll just let you know what´s been going on in my life, since now you can relate a bit.  Two weeks ago I was called as Zone Leader and it´s really difficult but a nice challenge at the same time.  I have no free time, which means almost no time to eat at night or in the morning, but I´ve already been learning ton which is cool.  This week we were talking with Elder Foster about leadership and vision.  What he said about vision is not just setting goals and making plans to achieve them, but rather picture a person and what they are capable of achieving and becoming.  Vision comes from pondering what does the Lord want for his children at this time, in this place, under these conditions.  It´s like Nephi in 1 Nephi chapter 2.  Why did he obey his father and actually achieve finding the plates when his brothers didn´t do either, because he had vision and not just blind obedience.  It´s interesting to study, because he started just wanting to know the mysteries of God and in prayer he received his answer, it says the Lord softened his heart (felt God´s love for him) and He told Nephi that what his father said was true.  That gave him the vision he needed to trust his leaders (God and Lehi) to have a vision of achieving success when they gave him a commandment.  It´s interesting the order in which he received his revelations and then the commandment to retrieve the plates. 

Well, enough for now, talk more next week.  We have a special leadership training this week so I´ll probably talk about what we learn from the 8 fundamentals next Monday.  Love ya and find your vision of what God wants for Elder Jordan Arrowchis at the MTC, during these three weeks, under a super spiritual atmosphere.
