This is our baptism and all my ties. I have 18 ties and only one of them is an original I came out with. I hit my 8 month mark and I'm freaking out. It is going by way to fast. I just want to work and baptize. It was a fun week. It was 120 degrees on Monday and Tuesday and only 90 on Wednesday. It actually felt cold, I almost had to wear a jacket. We had a way cool baptism. I don't really know what else to say. It is missionary work. Doing the work is normal now and I am used to the routine. It is fun... you have to make it fun or else you will not like it!

That's me and my FAVORITE missionary ever Elder O'Toole. He is the man! We hung out for two days this week and he stayed with us while we had a leadership meeting. They are way fun and way long. We had a blast. It was a good week. We didn't have any baptisms this week because the people chose to smoke this week so we should have a couple this coming weekend. Got to love the Word of Wisdom. It is really getting humid here. It is rough. Summer goes until about October 1st and then it starts cooling down back into the 80's and low 90's. I can't wait for that. The humidity is crazy. Next Sunday is my 8 month mark. Time is flying. Have a good week. ROCK HARD.
We asked Dane about going to President McConkie's missionary report on Sunday. Here was his response - "Yes you freaking go. He will be an apostle someday and his talks are soooo amazing. You will not regret it. I would bike all the way to Utah just to hear another one of his talks. He talks like his dad does. Intense and he doesn't ever prepare!"
