Elder Whittaker has been gone for almost six months. I can't believe it! Although time is going by really fast it feels like I haven't seen him in forever! I just keep telling myself that he is 1/4 of the way done. I look up to my brother so much! He truly is my best friend. Through every letter I feel of his spirit. I know that he is giving it 120% and doing all that he can to be the best missionary he possibly can be. He is such a great example to all of us. As I read his letters every week he makes me want to be a better person, and to do those things that are pleasing unto our Heavenly Father. My family is receiving so many blessings for his service to the Lord. I love him so much and am so proud of him! In his last letter he said,"If we do what is right everyday the spirit will be with us, and Satan will not be able to take advantage of us." I loved that because of the simplicity it teaches us. It is our choice to let Satan over power us. Just like Logan said if we are doing what is right everyday he won't take advantage of us. Logan is not only teaching the people of Costa Rica but he is teaching me every week, and helping me to be better!
As the holidays approach I seem to miss him more and more, but I know that he is supposed to be on a mission serving the people of Costa Rica. I love him and miss him like crazy, but I am grateful for the sacrifice he is making everyday to bring them the true happiness that we have! He is doing great and seems so happy doing the Lord's Work!
