"And any man that shall go and preach this gospel of the kingdom, and fail not to continue faithful in all things, shall not be weary in mind, neither darkened, neither in body, limb, nor joint; and a hair of his head shall not fall to the ground unnoticed. And they shall not go hungry, neither athirst." - Doctrine and Covenants 84:80

Happy Birthday Mom!

September 1, 2013

Freak lady, you need to get out and enjoy birthdays more.  I'm glad my little letter got there in time. Sorry it wasn't much. but I'll spoil ya when I get home and get rich.

The weeks been good. We got a baptism coming up this Saturday so that's always good. We've also been working with this kid who just came home from his mission, so it's been a blast. I've been learning a lot from him. 

Yesterday at church was great. We've been struggling getting people from the ward to work with us so we can teach sisters where there isn't a guy in the home.  We had an idea for when we get punted, of just taking the less actives with us and introducing them to each other. Hey, it worked too! We got a new family at church the other day. They are way dope. We gave their son a blessing the other day (we've given like 10 this week) because they though he had dengue.  When we went back, he was all good.

We also got this one investigator to church finally. Nicest lady in the world, other than you mom ;) She tried to drop us a while back, but she's too nice. So when we stop by, she always lets us in.  Now she came to church and has a baptism date this month. 

Nothing too much! We have a mission tour next week with Elder Echo Hawk coming, so that will be great!

Aight, love ya! Peace.

Elder Larry Echo Hawk
Elder Echo Hawk is a General Authority of the Church.  He is a member of the Pawnee Nation and was the first American Indian elected as a State Attorney General in 1990 for Idaho. He eceived a bachelor’s degree from Brigham Young University in 1970 and a Juris Doctor degree in law from the University of Utah in 1973.

Haha Dad! The weather doesn't dry here. We got drenched yesterday walking around and tried to use scraps of tarp as umbrellas. It almost kinda worked!
Yes, Elder Leonards here, but I'm not sure when I'll get to see him. We're both in areas that don't get to go to the temple anymore, which is basically the only time now that I get to see anyone.

We have a baptism this week, so it should be good. Hopefully we will have a few more this month too. We are finally getting some new people to church, which is always the biggest problem. Hey, just curious. Do we have a ward mission leader in our ward, and ward missionaries? I don't remember. I always just use our home ward as a model of what hopefully we can model the church here to be like.

Hope Mom's birthday was good and Britt's will be too! I'll be back in technically only 10 months now to join in on the fun!

Peace homie! Love ya!
