February 22, 2010

Hey Family!!
Hows every thing in Phoenix going? Last night we received about 4-5 inches of snow. Everyone told us it was going to be like 10 inches so we were happy to just get 4-5. Mom, I don't think that there is a Bank of America here in Clinton. There isn't even a Chase in town for my church account. So I don't think that there is anything I can do at the moment. My package should arrive tomorrow. I sent it on Friday, because I did not even finish the tape until Wednesday. But there is also some stuff in there that I think that you would like to keep.
The dormers sound like a huge project, but I bet they look great. You should send me a picture of the finished product. Dad, I love getting your letters in the mail, and about you and grandpa. It sounds like he had a great time at the tractor show with you. I wish I could have been there, I really liked the last one that we went to way out on the edge of town. I'm happy to hear that grandpa's doing well, he's such a stud! How's everything going in Primary? I enjoyed teaching the 5 year olds. And I will always remember what Kovin said, if you don't know the answer just say "Jesus?" Sounds like work is keeping you busy, hopefully you won't get burnt out doing choir, work, and tractor building. Melanie, your letter made me laugh so hard. I like those kind of letters. I don't really know what you can tell that kid, you should tell him that only through repentance and waters of a shower can he be forgiven. Roxanne-WRITE ME BACK! Rachel, thanks for your letter.
This week we have been really busy. Last night we found out that were leading the district in church tours and baptismal commitments. So we are totally going to get some free lunches out of it.
We met a duck yesterday. We named him Harold and got some sweet pictures with him. We finally got a new investigator to go to church this Sunday. He's living with his sister who is a member and we're working with him to get back on track. I love being a missionary. It's weird to be in a home and all of a sudden people are praying for the missionaries, and then you realize that's me. Every day I understand a little more about the gospel and the love that it brings. To see a change in someone just brightens my day and makes me want to work even harder. The love of the members is the same everywhere in the church and it's such a wonderful thing to be a part of it. I LOVE YOU ALL AT HOME AND IN THE WARD.
