4th letter Oct. 20,2008

Dear Bullock Family, I had the opportunity to go to the Provo temple. What a beautiful place. I felt the spirit so much. As I sat there I was thinking about this gospel and how much it benefits our lives. I love this church! I can't wait to get out to Macon and serve there. I'm getting real good at teaching the first discussion. We start the second discussion tomorrow. So I pretty much got jipped on my P-Day. My p-days are on Thursday and we got here on Wed. The next day we had orientation, so we had to wait forever. I love you all and can't express how I'm feeling, my testimony is changing every second. All the talks I listen to I take notes. Then I learn off that. The talks are so amazing! My companion is from South Jordan, Utah. His name is Elder Andrew Park. He is so cool. I'm sorry for treating you all so badly! Mom, I love you with all my heart. Dad, I'm sorry for arguing and fighting with you some days. Lindsay, you are the best sister along with Ashley and Savannah. Linds, good luck with everything. I want you all to remember that Curtis loves all of you and that he misses you. Savannah your so pretty. I'm glad that your so smart. You will be smarter than me when I get home. Ash, don't flirt too hard! Keep being you. I miss all of your great examples. Jake, Jake, Jake!! you can have whatever you want of mine. Seriously, take whatever ok. Go through my boxes, or if I still have stuff in my room, go though that. The x-box is yours so do what you want. OK Jake? I love you so much and hope you get better soon. Dad, your the best example that I could possible have! The day we parted and you cried, I realized how much this means to you! I'd never seen you cry before, so I'm always going to remember it. Don't worry, I won't let you down, I promise I'm going to serve the Lord with all my heart, might, mind, and strength. I've been working out, and I'm one of the biggest in my group. Dad, get this, there is an Elder Tuddol and he holds the record in Utah for flat bench. He benched 406 one time. Isn't that Insane! I could barely breath when he told me this. The other day when we got done with gym, we were getting dressed fast because we had 5 min. until class. The Elders in the other room came in our room in just their towels. They had just gotten out of the shower and they asked if we could do them a favor. They had all left their keys in their room. So they were buck naked in the hall.It was way funny! I seriously almost peed my pants. I have some funny pics . they are getting developed. I'll send them later. I love you all. Have a great day, week and months! Much Love, Elder Curtis Bullock

3rd letter Oct. 16, 2008

Hi! I really need some white socks, please. I'll probably send some stuff back in the box you send me. The CD player is working just fine. My diabetic bracelet broke, I think I need a stronger one please. So how's the truck?Tell the girls to be careful when you are teaching them to drive her.I've learned so much, I can't wait to call you. Serious, it will be so cool! I have this personal tutor and she's the coolest old lady (besides my grandmas) that I've met. She helps me understand the scriptures so much better. Well guess what.. I shook Elder Richard G. Scott's hand! He came and spoke at a devotional. It was so cool. I felt the spirit so much. Tell everyone that I love them. It helps me a lot when I receive letters. so whenever you have the chance,send me a quick letter. Love Elder Curtis Bullock P.S. Jake, thanks for your letters. They are ausome. Keep writing to me Ok. Savannah, thanks for your letter! I love you! Remember that I pray for all of you morning and night. I love you all so very much. Bye

2nd letter Oct. 13th 2008

Dear Mom , I forgot to pack white socks. Can you send me some? Also, could you please send me my Old Navy sweatshirt that zips up? Thanks You! I love you so much. I am strengthening my testimony each day. I talked to cam,and I taught him the first discussion. I started to cry when I was talking about families so my companion had to take over. It's so great down here, but it's the hardest thing I've ever done mentally and physically. Mom, I left my cd's in the car so could you send them in the package with the sweatshirt. How are my shoes? Tell my truck that I love it please, I miss it a lot. Tell Jacob that I love him so much and that he can have anything I left behind, Ok! Savannah thanks for the cute letters, I love them. I keep everyone of them. Also, mom thanks for your letters it helps me so much. I sure miss my pictures though. I need that pic of me and cam on Dad's motorcycle please! I want to bear you my testimony. I know this church is true. While I've been here I've felt the spirit so much. The Atonement is real. Jesus died for me so I can return and live with him. I love having the spirit with me. I feel so happy and wanting to serve the Lord. I know families are supposed to be together for eternity. I know that Joseph Smith restored the gospel and got the Aaronic Priesthood from John the Baptist. And Peter James and John came down and gave him the Melchizedek Priesthood. I know that the book of Mormon is real and this it is true. I also know that the prophet gets revelation from the Father on what to do. Also my testimony is getting bigger each day. I'm learning so much. I even get a personal tutor. I love you so much! Hope to hear from you soon! "till we meet again" Kisses to you all! Elder Curtis Bullock

Dear Mom & Dad & Family! I'm having a tight (fun) time down here. I've just began my second day.Mom, my cd's we listened to are still in the car. Can you please ship them to me please, thanks. So I've seen Lance and Doug. When I saw Doug I was like "Doug" I mean Elder Heath. That was a good time. He told me that after the first week you'll want to go home. But after that you'll be fine. I miss you guys so much. Mom, get those pics done please! I love you all and can't wait "till we meet again" Kisses to you from me Elder Curtis Bullock
