August 23, 2010

alright to start things off... yes i did get skees package last week because it took a while to get here and then when usps tried to drop it by... i wasnt there a few times so that is why i havent wrote him yet. I plan on writing him and wishing him a happy birthday and also to write his family. You asked if i would write Bridger... yes i put it on my things to do last week i just didnt have enough time... (if you could somehow come up with a way to put another hour in a day that would be awesome)
This Morning while i was Studying... it hit me that the kids started school today. i was like Whoa!! that came pretty fast! That makes me sad that Brash was that nervous for school... i have thought about him too. You know that picture you sent me of him learning how to ride the dirt bike?? well i cut that out because it is pretty small and i put it on the back of my name tag... so i see him every time i put my tag on and everytime i take my tag off.
I remember dad saying something about Quincie going to do one dance class... that is great i am excited that she decided to go through with that and do the thing she loves to do! haha that is pretty funny what you told her about being nice to Jensen... Speaking of Jens... she wasnt nervous was she?? she has been ready for jr. high since last summer haha but i hope everything goes good for her to... it definitely takes time for the changes. that is funny that she is going to help dad lose 30 lbs. even though he probably is in pretty good shape cause doesnt he play basketball like everyday?? he probably deserves a chocolate cake ;) hahah!!
alright so for my week... well for the most part it was pretty slow. until last night when we found out that Valerie Contrerez (one of our investigators) is going to be Baptized September 5th... that is in two weeks!!! My companion and i are pretty excited we have been teaching her for about 3 and a half weeks... YESS!! My first investigator baptism!! she is really excited and she is learning a whole lot its awesome soo soo cool...
we are also making progress with many other investigators... we have like 8 but it is pretty slow for them... we have been given alot of referrals for this week to go by so hopefullly that goes good ya know?
Dad... it was interesting that you said that we will be giving people the Greatest gift in their lives... or you said something to that extent. It is wierd ot think about though... because its all falls into place from the wonderful Plan God has for us... if we center our lives around Christ and our Heavenly Father and do those things that are in harmony with their teachings the rest of our lives will just fall into place. We will be blessed with temporal blessings, but those arent important because that is not what we were brought here for ya know??... i dont know i just think it is intriguing to the mind...
Yes we get to go to the L.A Temple next week...I am pretty excited for that ... it seems like i havent been in forever... and it has only been about 3 months so that will be good. we have zone conference tomorrow finally we have it again... we havent had one since the first one we had.
well i miss you guys alot and i sure hope the kids get a good start off for school... hope everything goes well this next week... i cant believe that happened to Todd that is insane... if you could next week send me their address that would be nice... well off i go for another week... my favorite thing i read this week was Doctrine and Covenants 104 it is great...
Well i love you guys as Far as the sunshines!!
