18 June 2012

its getting pretty hot here, but thats okay, cause they gave us a car :) :) i'm still ready for transfers, but the car helps lol.

fathers day was tough to get people out to church. everybody went out for breakfast with their dads instead of coming to church with me :( it's okay though. this week will be a bunch of me saying goodbye to people and telling them one more time to read their scriptures. i'll find out Wednesday or thursday if im training a new elder and then saturday i'll find out where im going. and then monday i'll tell you all about it :)

both friday and saturday i got to go on splits with different elders in different areas. it was great! i got to meet a lot of new people and it was fun to teach with some people that i dont usually get to teach with!  we taught one kid, his name is ryan, hes 19, and he has been meeting with the missionaries as often as possible for about the last 3 weeks. idk his whole story, but basically, he walked into church, talked to the missionaries and said, "i want to change my life" and he has! hes read a lot of the Book of Mormon and the New testament, hes stopped smoking and drinking, and he is really really excited about his baptism at the end of the week! he's inviting everybody lol. it was cool to see how quickly and how excited/motivated he is to change!

we're gonna go out and brave the heat today and play some football, it should be good fun!

this weekend is stake conference here, so that means im gonna make a big push and i'll be done with the BoM next time im email :) im excited to finish! this time going through is definitely the most quality read of the Book of Mormon ive ever done! its awesome! im excited to do the same in the new testament!

i hope everything is going well for everyone! make sure you dont waste your whole summer! do something productive! i know most of you are :) actually, i cant believe how many of my friends are all over the world doing great things, its crazy! singapore, spain, brazil, mexico, australia, chile. it's awesome! keep it up!

i love all of you!
