The Elders are using their ties to make a blanket for President McConkie and his wife because they are leaving at the end of June. His new Mission Presidents last name is Holme from St. George.
I love you guys and love all you do for me. I will keep you in my prayers as well. The Lord truely loves you and is watching over you. I know you are busy, but don't get too busy for church or the gospel because I have seen what it can do for thousands of people. I can testify that if you read the scriptures daily and go to church you have have too many blessings to handle. I love you guys. Have a good week.

This is me in SC baby! We bapitized a 12 year old boy this week. Satan worked hard on him. When we got to the church none of this clothes fit. He said he would not get baptized unless his sister was there and right before the baptism no one could find her. By the time we found her they had drained the baptismal font. 3 hours later he was finally baptized.
We are working with lots of people and they all have crazy problems like living with their boy friends, smoking or other crazy stuff.
It was cooler this week temps were in the high 90's. It is supposed to be in the 100's this week.... can't wait for that!
This is a picture of me on my bed talking to the President. My bed frame broke this week so I guess I really am getting fat. :( Actually I am losing weight. One of the guys we are working with made us a deal, he said he would live the word of wisdom if we woke up and ran 2 miles every day. He is living the word of wisdom so we have to uphold our end of the bargain.
I saw an open field with no trees this week. It really made me miss the mountains and open places because it is so closed and there are no mountains here.
I am going on splits with President McConkie tonight. He and I are going to teach a family and Elder Brannan is going with the Spanish missionaries. I am SO STOKED!
I love you all it was a great week. Have a good week.

This is me reading the REAL gold plates.... they are real. And us in our home aka the trailer park. I love the trailer park it makes me so happy! We taught 25 lessons to people just in that trailer park alone. Trailers are the bomb. I'm not going to live in one but the people in them are way humble.
Not too much exciting this week. The ward we are serving in called our family and canceled the baptism on Saturday. We were really really mad! We are going to try and baptize them this weekend. This ward gives us problems, but I am here to baptize not to reactivate. My purpose is to people to the waters and there job is to take them in. If they don't want me to baptize then I don't want to be here. It was a good week! We had a lady come up to us in church and say I am ready to be baptized I know it is true. It was way sweet!
