May 2, 2011

Hey Family!!
Oh man it is super weird to think that i have been out here in California for 1 year... it is has truly been a great year! right now when i think about it and im like oh wow i have been out for so loooong.... but when i look back on the year and things that i have done im like oh wow that was quite quick and i have one year left to do even more work... i have a feeling that these next 12 months are going to be overwhelming, because i will want to get so much done in so short amount of time. it is going to be good though... i still remember that first day in the MTC like it was yesterday and feeling like i could not go through with mission stuff, but now i am thinking i dont see myself going home from this mission stuff. oh about the pictures... i am going to send the card home right after thursday because we are going out to eat with some other Elders for the Year mark and then i will send off the card ok? the book sounds really cool i will be excited to see it.
Things here this week were alright... the Highlight of the week was definitely Elder Perry he was awesome... it was really neat to see him and his personality. he was just himself, but still an Apostle... i dont know you dont really get to see that during General Conference so it was really cool to seem him like that.. he gave us some great advice and better ways to move the work along here in Arcadia California... i was so excited to go out and find new people... we have not found any nwe people ina while, but that is ok we are going to find them this week. the L.A mission was there too and it was weird they just looked different to us... im not trying to say that our mission is better than theres but tehy jsut seemed really different and i wasnt the only one who thought so. i dont know what it was but i know that i am glad im here in the Arcadia Mission!
We were bashed again this week... i hate it so much this guy had us come in and talk with him and he went Anti on us and it was not good... towards the end of the conversation he was saying that he can feel the Holy Spirit when he is sharing his stuff with us... i would have agreed with him if he would have been sharing truth with us, because the Holy Ghost can testify of truth... but he definitely was not sharing truth... he twisted so many doctrines it was not even funny. anyway he said that and i stopped him and said... Greg when i walked in your house and you handed me the Anti doctrine and told me to explain it to you... the Spirit left. he had nothing to say and then my companion read a scripture out of the Book OF Mormon and testified of the truth of it and our Religion and the guy had nothing else to say... thats pretty much where the conversation stopped. i dont like Bashing it is the most effective way to waste the Lords time, but people have to tell us what they think they should.
i am glad that you got the Email from Sister Clavel! they are such a cool family and they are so nice to us missionaries! i hope you email her back... i think that is what she wanted you to do if you already have not.
Happy Mothers Day mom i love you so much thank you for everything and your Card is on its way!!
sorry i have like 1 minute left... we will probably calling home around 4 so 5 for you... i will try to skype!
Love you
LOve Elder Emery
