April 4, 2012

Thanks for all you do mom I appreciate the love you show to me and to everyone. I'm pretty sure that Ashley will not move out she loves home to much so just ignore it lol! What will probably happen is if I ever end up moving out for college then she would probably move in with me lol!!

So I hear Brittany is doing better. I got the bracelet she made for me and I tied it on to my scripture bag so thats pretty cool lol!

So we had a baptism on Saturday and I was able to perform the baptism!! The girls name is Sequoia she is 12 and she is very very smart. Her aunt who is 20 is going to be baptized in two weeks! We also had another miracle, an investigator we dropped about 2 months ago called us out of the blue and asked us come over! He attends seminary in Holbrook but he just doesn't go to church in Greasewood. He told us that he has been to church everywhere else but because his dad is a road man which means he does payote ceremonies, he just wasn't home very much. He is 16 and has a strong testimony of the gospel. In fact he invited us over to eat pizza and watch General Conference with him. So ya things are really rolling. His baptism date is set for this Easter weekend! What an awesome day to get baptized.

Our two day Zone Conference was great! I learned a ton and it always seems to come right when I need it most so I am greatful for that. Next transfer we are going on a temple trip and in two weeks we will have two more days of training so ya we are super busy and workin hard!! I love the work!

So last week we went to a birthday party for one of our members and of course some of the people there started asking questions. It was so cool because before we new it we had all of these adults there listening to us! What an experience and you could just see the spirit working on them. I was so great because they asked alot of questions that we were able to answer which was sweet! We heard some traditional birthday songs from them and wow that was so cool!!! I wish I could have recorded it but that is ok. At least now we have got a whole family thinking about the gospel so I am stoked for more baptisms soon!

Well thats pretty much all I got for ya all today take care love ya!

So I am doing great and I am not sick or anything so no need to worry, I am healthy! The weather here was snowy all weekend but it didn't stay or stick on the ground. In fact we didn't even get an inch! I wish that it would just snow!!! My new companion is Elder Chadwick and he is pretty awesome. He is from Tremonton Utah so ya not much more to say about that lol!

It is pretty tricky to be a trainer but somehow he ends up learning new things and so do I so thank the Lord on that one!

So I think in my last e-mail I told you about that lady with two boys she wants baptized. Well she has decided that she doesn't have time for us to come any more. We felt bad about that and I guess that opportunity is down the drain, but on the bright side we did find a lady who is on track for baptism this week. But she told us the other day that she just doesn't feel ready yet so we will but we will put that date back probably to the 14 or so. It's just going to take some time.

We had a miracle this last week on Sunday actually! Orlinda and Sequoia are two girls who our branch president has over for lessons at his house. We were kind of concerned because we hadn't seen them in like 2 weeks. But all of a sudden they show up at the branch presidents house yesterday wondering if they could be baptized still!! Of course we said yes and they will be interviewed on Wednesday night before we drive to Flagstaff for zone conference!! Isn' t that awesome? The Lord sure works in mysterious ways.

Brittany sounds like she is doing good and I am glad that her arthritis is doing better and that she she actually wants to go to school!? That's just doesn't sound normal because now I also wanna go back to school so I can be smarter than her lol!

And mom, you don't need to send the Friend magazines or anything cause we have tons of them!!!

Well that's all that has happend this week

Take care love ya all!

Well good afternoon! You know mom, I was just joking about the missed e-mail. I know you do your best to remember and I appreciate it. In fact about 10 minutes after I sent it I got your e-mail from home so I read it logged off. Sorry I didn't catch you!

Well this week as been great but hard. First of all it was great because well I am a trainer now!! And then lousy because we hardly got to see anyone except for our investigators who are progressing the fastest and the best and then we had a baptism interview so I guess overall it ended up being a pretty good week. I wonder if the Lord is taking it easy on Elder Chadwick this first week but now that it is over he has no excuse so we are going to work hard!!

I am doing good with being paitent thanks to Elder Hunsaker! The only bad thing I got from him luckly is road rage but I will get over that soon!

So I have grown like 1/4" so not too much. My clothes still fit fine and everything and I don't think I am tan maybe it's all the dirt or duststorms that has died my skin darker who knows? But ya I am fine and so is my companion. We have alot to learn together and I am stoked to get to work even harder now that I have somebody who is excited to learn and wants to know everything. That is so cool that prez sent a letter home to you guys. He is awesome and I am gonna miss him!! He has served in the Farmington Mission for 3 years and now it is time for someone else to come in. He has been the best and I have learned so much from him.

Well that's all that has been going on this week. I hope you guys are doing great and I love ya all!!
