Visited Casa Grande

Well....... I guess the 2nd verse is sung. I can't believe how short a year feels from this end of it.
Questions first:
1. Did you get our package?
2. Is Elder Leavitt a relative of Governor Leavitt?
    Elder Leavitt's dad's cousin is governer Leavitt. Elder Leavitt knows him well, he says. Like an Uncle.
3. What was your favorite talk in conference?
    Elder Boyd K Packer's testimony was incredible. Apostles don't usually word it like he did. This may have been his last one, eh? I love that guy. As for a "talk" I would have to pick Elder Uchtdorf's "sleeping during the revolution" talk.
4. Would you like me to send you a copy of the conference issue in English?
    I think I can get one in English here.
5. How is the Sister Missionary taking over medical coming along? When will you give her the medical responsibilities?
    She has already taken over the health responsibilities of the sisters..... but, as fate would have it, she herself got sick this week, and so I have still been helping sister's with their health. Ha ha ha ha ha ha.

I went back to Casa Grande this week. Visited my old family. I love them so much. Then I got to drive back to Trujillo with President talking about doctrine of the priesthood. I wish I knew half as much as President Marler. I wonder how a man even gets so smart. I will miss opportunities like that when I leave the office.

Did a training for my ward with Elder Zavaleta about how to have a good ward counsel meeting. The obra de salvación requires every ward to become efficient in that process.

Courtney-  I love you and focus on school. Just DO IT (Nike). Make your priorities right. Homework before friends. It is hard, but it has to be done. You learn those valuable skills in high school, and they are a pattern for the rest of your life.

Dad I really miss your humor. Listen to "wish you were here" for me today.

I love you and I hope you have a good week.

-Elder Boekweg




  1. I am impressed with Chance's comments to Courtney. That type of wisdom is rarely heard when coming from us oldies. It is so much more palatable from a sibling. Thanks, Chance and well done.

  2. It's always fun to read these letters... he's such a great young man! I was listening to "My Dearest April" this week, thinking about him :) Wow - it's been a year?!@#$!?
