    BIENVENIDO A CASA DAVID.

  2. :)

    I think that’s all I can say at the moment, or not say haha.

    Glad he’s back…glad he’s back :)

  3. Dayzee said

    I could watch that all night and all day. And I will. :)

    What a sweetie!

  4. tawna21 said

    Dayzee, me too!! My heart is bursting with happiness … I will wait ♥ :)

  5. I “believe” now. April Fool’s Day always has me doubting myself. I was slow to accept it as it didn’t seem real…but I believe it now. You are a beautiful sight, David. Welcome home.

  6. jans11 said

    Oh, my goodness, David. Welcome back. Your voice is music to my ears!♥ I, also, can listen to this forever. :)

  7. MT said

    haha I got the tweet on my phone and ran straight to the computer to see it. I’m surprised we’ve already gotten two videos and a tweet when he’s only been home 10 days. That’s more that I actually thought we’d hear from him in such a short time.

    Thanks so much for thinking of us and letting us know how you’re doing, David. :)

    He is such a joy.

    Welcome back, David — you look and sound great. Take your time adjusting, we’ll wait until you’re ready to make your beautiful music again.

  9. sweetonda said

    This made my day! :) So good to see his face, yes, I can be patient for as long as he needs!

  10. Suzy-Q said

    He’s still David!! What a treat to the ears and eyes while watching that video. I am doing the “Happy Dance”!!! I love that young man!!!

  11. djafan said

    David taking the time to communicate with us speaks volumes. He knows we’re here just waiting “patiently” for him to return to us. The sight of him speaking directly to us with such a familiarity, like old friends connecting again warms my heart. David, his voice, his words, his smile and him saying “que esten bien todos” , just love him.

  12. angelofdja said

    He’s still David…Gosh, I just can’t believe how good that made me feel! ;-)

  13. SandyBeaches said

    Dear David,

    We spent two interesting years while you were away. We went through holidays and for some, personal stormy weather, but often coming together to mention you and wonder how you were doing!

    We talked, exchanged thoughts and sometimes had small debates with plenty of humor on the dull days! Special thanks to SnowAngelz for that!!

    On Saturday nights we often came to the Voice Unplugged and listened to your music with special Christmas videos from Chile.

    As fans we finally learnt one thing and that was patience. Your music is so very special to each of us and we are looking forward to hearing you sing once again.

  14. tawna21 said

    SB – you said it all right there in #13! :)

  15. bluesky4home said

    You saw the “shine” in his eyes. >—–l–O Yep. Don’t know if I will be able to get through the “return missionary” thing on Sunday. I remember my sons and how hard it was coming home. They love the life so much, and are still one foot “out there”. I wrote before that when I came back from my own mission I didn’t unpack my suitcases for 2 weeks. I just couldn’t. I just washed my clothes and put them back in the suitcase. *_*

    I am so glad he had this experience. And… I know that he will adjust.

    Do you guys have any idea how much I appreciate you? What other fans would be so understanding and so supportive? I read the comments on the You Tube page under his blog, and I just melt. I really feel that all your love and tender support is going to be key in helping him to reconnect in all the best ways. He always has been “on a mission” anyway, one that he chose for himself a long time ago.

    He will discover that he has brought us along, and sold us on being more active in the world in regards to our own passions, that we may be a different group than he has been hanging out with, but we are a pretty darn good bunch of peeps to have as a bunch of “companions”. And… we still expect the best of him. And… he is easy to follow. He just sings “Do”, a deer, a female deer….. and we are ready to don curtain-clothes and skip around cobblestoned streets singing at the top of our lungs for no reason in the world except: it feels so good. ^_^

    (I think I will just gently let myself submerge in this lake of love, and disappear under the surface for a while. Maybe I will blow a bubble or two.)

  16. Kaycee said

    Still smiling from the blog. So happy to hear from him. Great therapy to end a tough day! Just like Angelofdja so perfectly said, “Gosh, I just can’t believe how good that made me feel!”

    More earthquakes…prayers for mis queridos chilenos ;(

  19. jans11 said

    Oh, sweet David. Another tweet. Hate that it’s because of a tragedy, but it is so good to hear from you and know that you are on the same page as we are, that you are home away from the earthquakes. I know your heart aches for your friends that you have left behind.

    SB and Bluesky, I love both of your comments. ♥

  20. Patricia Ann said

    Wow – it feels like such an honor to just be able to hold David in prayer, knowing he will feel our support in this way – after all, he has taught us something about being unselfish – I add my prayers for the queridos chilenos. This is very powerful; these connections; these intentions. Love how he started his blog with a few piano notes – yes, yes, the music is still here, will always be here. So happy our angel is safe.

  21. Dayzee said

    Still watching the vlog. Love to see his hand hover over the piano keys. Love to see him look over his shoulder. Love to listen to him ramble, could have been more rambling, but I will not complain. Loved that he thanked us for our letters :) Loved to see him enjoying the “surprises” that occurred in his absence. Pretty much just loving the vlog.

    Keeping Chile in my prayers.

  22. jans11 said

    Dayzee, I see that David makes you love everything too! :) Don’t ya just live him! :)

    To me it seems as if his allergies may have been bothering him. His sound was a bit nasally and his eyes were watering a bit. Like his left one was kind of red again….just nitpicking…as Simon says. haha Otherwise, he is absolutely perfect! As usual.

  23. jans11 said

    Whoops…love him not live him….

  24. Angelica said

    Jans, you had it right the first time.

  25. djafan said

    Everyone still watching David’s vlog? I confess I am lol

    Love and live David, yep both are good :)

    I had a wonderful Thai lunch with blueberryice today and she says to say hi to all and that she is still here, very much a David fan. It is so nice to hang out with someone who gets you and this ODD, the best. And the friendship beyond being a David fan is the cherry on top. I will be having halo halo thanks to her.

    More David buzz today I’ll post later. Off to a softball game!

  26. jans11 said

    Angelica, you are right! ♥

  27. Oh djafan, a new buzz and our time is 1:35 am. Oh well, we will see tomorrow.

    SB

  28. mspoohbear said

    Hello everyone! Just want to drop by to say hi and let you all know I’m still here….I do miss reading everyone’s comments here and from time to time emerge from lurking to comment. Anyway……been hibernating for a while due to some very difficult personal issues I am going thru right now. I haven’t posted much of anything anywhere. I am really excited now that David is back.

    Finally, I found time to take a picture of the MKOC Tour backdrop piece that I won from the raffle. It arrived 2 weeks ago and to my surprise, it came with an 8 x10 picture of David. Although the picture arrived with the back drop piece with big creases due to possible mail handling, I still very much appreciate it. Here’s a picture of it…..

    Look what I got in the mail! A piece of the backdrop used by @DavidArchie on his MKOC Tour and picture of him. YEY! pic.twitter.com/XDKglhpRmf— Winnie Ward (@Winnie_Ward) April 4, 2014

    Good Heart ‏@yellow4good 1h

    David Archuleta’s Abuelo, WILFREDO MAYORGA Interview!!!!! Thank you JR!

  38. djafan said

    The man tweets!!!!!!

    David Archuleta ‏@DavidArchie 2m
    My 3 sisters are showing me the movie “Frozen”. Watching it with them now. “For the first time in forever” I am watching a movie, haha.

  39. djafan said

    And twitter erupts!!!!!

  40. tawna21 said

    Oh my. It would be interesting to know what the interview with David’s grandpa is all about. Dja… can you enlighten us a little? (dang, I should have taken those Spanish classes — actually, as fast as they are talking I probably would understand anyway) :)

  41. MT said

    I have missed those random tweets! I hope he’s enjoying the movie. :)

    Dja,
    Can you give us an abbreviated version of what was said in the interview? Basically, I’m asking if he said anything we didn’t already know regarding music. Thanks. :D

  42. ray said

    dontcha just love that young MAN.i do.he,s the best

  43. djafan said

    MT, In general they talk about David being afraid of hurricanes and lightning storms when he lived in Florida and that he was always timid. So they never expected him to do singing in public but that he has overcome it and they’re all proud.

  44. djafan said

    Ray, I love him to pieces.

    “For the first time in forever” I am watching a movie, haha.”

  45. djafan said

    Another tweet???!!! YAY!

    David Archuleta ‏@DavidArchie 6m
    Get an inside look into what I was doing when I was “Called to Serve”. You can see the livestream Sunday 3:30 EST! :) http://live.ksl.com/scheduler/embed-view?cid=KSLHP_channel#hl=en&ls=true&ei=15295&sm=2667

  46. djafan said

    And a third…Oh David, Elder, love you both.

    David Archuleta ‏@DavidArchie 4m
    So for all of you wondering what was going on for the last 2 years, tune in to see what Elder Archuleta was doing! ;)

  47. djafan said

    The wink. That’s all.

  48. jans11 said

    How ironic. My granddaughter just brought me “Frozen” to watch! :) Love the wink….yes, David I’ll be watching what Elder Archuleta was doing the last 2 yrs. :)

  49. MT said

    Am I the only one who is completely confused when it comes to David right now? I didn’t expect anything from him when he first got home. I was surprised by the 11 sec video. Then he tweeted “Hola”, then ANOTHER video, and he asked for time. Now three tweets today. I really thought we’d maybe get a hello/hola or two in the first few weeks and that would be about it. Now? I don’t know what’s going on. LOL But he’s reaching out, working his way through it.

    I wasn’t planning to watch “Called To Serve.” I thought it might be too personal to him. But now that he’s extended an invitation. :)

    As for the Frozen tweet, I hadn’t seen the movie so I really didn’t get why “For the first time in forever” was in quotes so I went to Youtube to check it out. LOL I should have realized it had something to do with a song. I find it reassuring to see he still has that musical mind. :D

  50. MT said

    Dja,
    Thanks for the recap of the interview. :) I guess most kids are afraid of bad weather. I was. And it’s not surprising to hear he was shy. But isn’t it amazing how the one place he isn’t shy is on stage when he’s singing? I guess some things are just meant to be.

  51. ray said

    that young man is one step ahead of us at every turn, lov love it

  52. ray said

    he knew ,that there would be a lot of question about his miss,so here you go sunday have at it o man he,s so smart

  53. MT said

    Ray,
    You’re so right. I never know what’s coming next. He is full of surprises.

  54. gladys1961 said

    Here I have transcribed the interview Grandpa David.
    Starts 0.20 and ends at 7.14 minutes.
    (I like comments Grandpa, can someone translate?.)

    Mariel :Recientemente David Archuleta, cantante pop, escritor,actor y uno de los Finalistas de la séptima temporada del programa American Idol, regresó a casa, luego de servir una mision de tiempo completo en el país de Chile. para la IgIesia de Jesucristo de Los santos de los ultimos dias.
    David nació en Miami, Florida, y tanto su padre como su madre han estado relacionados en el mundo de la música. Pero hay otra persona que ha sido participe de la vida de éste joven cantante. Y hoy nos acompaña para compartir con nosotros algunas de sus experiencias preferidas, como abuelo de 14 nietos, incluyendo a David. Wilfredo es periodista y ha ejercido ésta profesión en su natal Honduras, y también es escritor.
    -Mariel : le queremos dar la bienvenida Wilfredo, muchas gracias por estar con nosotros y regalarnos estos minutitos.
    Wilfredo: muchísimas gracias a Usted, Mariel, para mi es un honor estar con ustedes.
    – Mariel: bueno, gracias. Queríamos preguntarle, recientemente publicamos un artículo acerca de los nietos que crecen cerca de sus abuelos, cuando son adultos son personas mas felices, como abuelo de 14 nietos y de uno de ellos que es famoso, cuál piensa Usted, que es el secreto de ser un buen abuelo ?
    Wilfredo: yo quisiera darle una respuesta reproduciendo un pensamiento que aparece en proverbios, en las sagradas escrituras que dice : ” la corona del anciano son sus nietos, el orgullo y la honra de los hijos son sus padres”.
    De manera que es un papel muy significativo el que nos corresponde a los abuelos, por que hemos tenido que pasar primero como hijos, luego a desempeñarnos como padres, para terminar siendo abuelos y sí es posible llegar a bisabuelo, como el caso mio, que acabo de recibir una tercera bisnieta.
    Mariel : bueno, felicitaciones. Y como abuelo de David, se acuerda de alguna anécdota preferida, de alguna travesura de David cuando él era niño ?
    Wilfredo: él era muy introvertido, desde pequeño, él a lo único que le tenia miedo era a las tormentas eléctricas. Hay muchas en el sur de la Florida por que en cada año hay una época de huracanes, y él tenia mucho temor a los huracanes, a los destellos de rayos y centellas. También tengo que referirme, cuando él gano el premio Star Search en el 2003, a él se le olvido la canción , cuando fueron a Honduras a presentarse, y esa fue una pena que él nunca ha podido olvidar. Él siempre la recuerda.

    Mariel : cuantos años tenia él ?
    wilfredo : él tenia 12 años.
    Mariel : 12 años, ok, él empezó muy jovencito.
    Wilfredo : él no tenia ningún indicio de que iba a ser artista, lo digo por esa misma timidez que se observaba en su primera infancia. Pero cuando se introdujo de lleno en éstos asuntos, él perdió totalmente su timidez.
    Mariel : él convirtió su timidez en una fortaleza, no ?
    Wilfredo : exactamente. Él tomo mucho ejemplos de lo demás, de muchas celebridades que también comenzaron así, y luego transformaron su personalidad.
    Mariel : él tiene 21 años, no es cierto ?
    Wilfredo : él va a cumplir 23.
    Mariel : él fue uno de los participantes de American Idol mas joven.
    Wilfredo : si, él era el mas joven por que tenia 17 años.
    Mariel : ok, alguna vez imagino que alguno de sus nietos iba a ser tan famoso como David ?
    Wilfredo : no, en absoluto, yo creo que ni él mismo, ni los padres. Mi hija, mamá de él, mis cuatros hijas tenían un grupo en Miami, que se llamaba Mayorga´sisters, por que mi apellido es Mayorga. Ellas cantaban en muchos eventos de Miami. Pues ellas si, pero no se cuál es la raíz artística, por que yo jamas he cantado, ni siquiera en el baño.
    Mariel : me imagino que habrá sido toda una alegría para la familia cuando David quedo como participante en el concurso de American Idol, y cuando después lo gano ?
    Wilfredo : fue una sorpresa, que aún todavia conservamos, por que no nos imaginábamos en absoluto. Nos reunimos en el 2007, en Georgia, donde vivía mi hija mayor. Logramos reunir a toda la familia para celebrar la navidad, pero como no podía trascender nada. Él ya había ido a San Diego para su participación, creo que él era el numero 11.000. Él ya tenia la noticia, pero no la supimos hasta que vimos su participación en vivo, en 2008.
    Mariel : ok, muchísimas gracias por habernos acompañado, y por compartir éstas historias acerca de usted y de David. Y lo felicitamos a David a través de usted, y a su familia por los logros y el ejemplo de un buen trabajo en familia.
    Wilfredo : eso esperamos nosotros también, que su futuro esta limpio hacia delante, sea de éxitos continuos.
