We ended up getting a few extra emails from Nicholas on Tuesday.  The main one was after Devotional.  He is so anxious for all of us to read the talk that Elder Holland gave.  It had a profound effect on him.  However, I have since discovered that they don't post the MTC devotionals for the public.  So I have written to Elder Holland at church headquarters and requested the talk.  I'll share it with all of you if/when I get it.  In the mean time, enjoy his extra letters below.

Subject: Holland

Elder Holland just spoke to us tonight for our Tuesday devotional and it was the most powerful thing I've ever felt in my entire life. I want everyone who reads this email to do one thing, member, nonmember, young and old alike find the talk that Holland gave tonight the fifteenth of January. For the people that this message gets forwarded to, if you do not do anything that I suggest the rest of my two years that will be ok as long as you look up this talk. Holland is my favorite apostle to listen to and whether you believe in the power and authority that he possesses or not you can't read this talk and not feel how important it is to me. I know that you will feel the power and authority that he has when you read it and if not then when I get back we'll talk and then you'll understand. He then dedicated three new buildings that had been renovated. That prayer was amazing to realize that all the buildings were dedicated like that. After the talk was finished I felt the Spirit so strong that I felt as though I was going to explode. Shortly after I decided that if I was to die by exploding because I was filled so much with the Spirit my physical body just couldn't handle it then that would be better than any other way I can think of if you were to give me all the choices in the universe. I'd like to finish by sharing my testimony that I know without a doubt that these men are called and inspired of God and that they receive revelation for the church but also by what people need. It is hard for me to even think of how people can come off their missions and then go innactive afterwards. I know that this church is true yesterday, today, and tommorrow. I say that in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

So I remembered what I was going to say! I met a guy that knew Chris from France. His name is Durhman I think. My pad's back at my room so if that''s wrong I''ll write you in a letter.

I'm sorry, I forgot to let you know that yes I am getting your letters. There was another thing that I thought of in the Temple but alas now it has left my mind. C'est la vie. I love you. =)
