Hey there! (: So, this week has been good... just living life. We've spent a lot of time this week just visiting and getting to know the members here, which is always my favorite. The members here are so sweet. The other night, we went to Sister Sarah's house and she has a 16 year old daughter, 13 year old, 11 year old son and a 2 year old daughter, and that whole family is just so fun. We are doing a choreographed dance thing for a branch party we are having soon, so that was fun.

And, Daniel, Caren's son, is doing well. He's reading through the restoration track right now before we come back this week. We had a lesson with him just about what we do as missionaries and how we are not here to force him to be baptized because that's kind of what he thought. Be he does want to be baptized. He just wants to keep learning before he makes and promises, which makes sense. He's still coming to church with his mom every week, and he's made a lot of good friends with the other deacons, so things are going well. (:

Only 11 emails left!

Hey! How are ya? This week's been all right. Just been finding a little bit for some new investigators... but guess what? Caren's son, Daniel, came to her baptism and says he wants to work towards baptism now (: So, that's cool. He's a cool kid and all. He's just your normal 15 year old and was never really interested in joining his om for some gospel lessons with some white kids, aha, but we've gotten to know him better lately, and he joined us for the first lesson the other day (: So, that's good!

Also, Monday was a holiday, and the email place was closed on Tuesday, so that's why I'm emailing on Wednesday. Other than that... we've visited some members. I've been fed a lot lately, so that's great, and transfer calls are in a few days. So, we'll see if I still get Jackson with me. I hope so, he's a cool guy.

I just found out that all the other missionaries send this big group email to like 80 people full of what they did everyday of the week, a trial they overcame, some "super spiritual" experience, and like a scripture they found that week (and more) and I realized that I might be the worst emailer ever, aha! A lot of that seems kind of fake to me, though, like it seems forced if you do it every week... or maybe I'm just a bad emailer. Sorry about that.

Anyways, I love ya and hope you're livin life to the fullest! aha!
