To Andrew, Ward of the State

Hi Andrew,

You were on fire today in Teachers Quorum. You summed up the entire lesson in a 30 second comment. I noticed today that your scriptures are getting read, they seem like they have some wear and tear on them. When you make comments I feel the spirit and I know that you have a real testimony. You are spiritually far more mature then the other teachers. Physically you are big, muscular, and handsome. You have the ability to speak in public and people like you.

You shock and surprise me every week considering your background. I know that your Mom gave birth to you when she was 14 and the State of Texas took you and your siblings into foster care when you were 9. You have no idea who your father is. Getting bounced around foster care is hard and you have emotional scars and fear and anger inside.
