He Loves Talking About The Gospel


today was temple preparation day!!  so we got to wake up early and make it in time for the temple! it was a great time, like always. and of course that is why i am writing today not Monday.  This was an awesome week! For sure the coolest thing that has been happening is our investigator F--!! we went over Tuesday and helped him with his little business. he has a little shop and paints car. So we get to talk to him a lot. We were thinking it was going to be kinda hard to always keep it a gospel related conversation, but he makes it so easy!! he loves talking about the gospel! he had a good lesson and he was like, so when are you going to come over again? tomorrow? we were just like sure. he told us to come back earlier and he would feed us lunch. so he ended up not being there because his phone was smoking and then he broke it and went to fix it. But we ate food out side because we couldnt go in because his mom was the only one home. But he came home and we had another good lesson. We went back that week and also yesterday!! he is progressing really good. He came to church also! He said that he really loved it. As we have been working with him, some of his friends come by. He is always sharing our church with them and is trying to get them to all come also! he keeps saying that he is going to be a Mormon soon. He is so cool! he brought his mom to church also. She is stuck at home and mostly just reads the Bible, so we are trying to get her to read the Book of Mormon also!  This week we didnt teach as many investigators. We were able to do a lot of work with less actives though. it was a good week.

This week we had a departing Zone Conference with President and Sister Wares. It was a great time. i am going to miss them. I really did grow to love them so much! it is going to be weird with all the change that is going to be happening here soon in the mission, but i am excited for the Whites to get here!  i didnt know Bro Bell knows him! that will be cool. I am super excited for them to get here. the Wares sent this out.  "We report our mission in the Draper 1st Ward sacrament meeting on Sunday, July 10th at 11:00am (corner of 12300 South and 600 East in Draper) followed by a little reunion at our home afterwards. Our home address is xxx Ardelle Cove, Draper, UT 84020. President Ware’s new cell is xxx-xxx-xxxx and Sister Ware xxx-xxx-xxxx. "  so if you want to go to a awesome spirit filled meeting and meet some of the coolest people i know, you should go to that!! 

thanks for being concerned about me getting my brownies! but it will all work out! i will get one some how. i dont know about the pants. i might want them when it gets hot in the summer. its cooled down, so i dont know. I havent changed any, well mostly. so i think it was a 32 around and 33 or 32 long. but we get $135 a month. It is for sure enough. i went over it a little last month because i ran out of like everything at the same time, like bathroom stuff, so i just had to get that. 

it sounds like back at home everything has been a lot of fun!! High adventure camps to eating food!! what better could you do? its probably not a good thing they have the black bear diner up here. i think you all we be in orem a little bit more. i am glad to hear fathers day was good!! getting together with the Mortensens was always fun. also i was thinking a little earlier about how old everyone was. i thought of jaxsen and thought the age 12. i dont know when but ever sense he turned that age, its seems to have just stuck! its weird to think how everyone is getting older faster then me. But i guess some things are just weird. 

i hope you all have a great week!!! thanks for the emails! i love you all!
