I got the coat and shoes and they are awesome! The coat keeps the rain off me really well and is super warm. Its going to be good weather for a few days but this winter is supposed to be brutal so the winter stuff is much appreciated 🙂
Letter to me;
Its funny I got the marriage invitation a few days before the wedding itself because I guess there was a mix up in the mission office with the mail, but its was awesome to get it. I remember the Draper temple a little I don’t remember a bunch but I do remember the sealing room and thinking it was an amazing. Tell them I said congrats and hi 🙂
The story with the girl (Alexis) was spoiled slightly by the fact that Elder Allen gave a small clue as to what we were doing and she put the whole scheme together before we could get it to her and when we handed it to her she said “I knew it!” she was still really thankful for the gift and was happy but I wish that it went according to plan…
Thanks for the Birthday wishes and the presents that you sent me! I had a hard time opening them at the correct time because I’m never home and just constantly here and there all day so I don’t have any down time but I was a good sport and didn’t open them early. Time HAS been flying by and I cant believe that I am about three months out, all the days just blend together and you have a hard time remembering what just happened yesterday. I’m glad that I’m keeping the journal because I cant remember most of what has happened out here. I have almost filled one of the journals up and I have a second one for when the first one runs out of room. All this writing has improved my handwriting a lot so I feel better about writing stuff down for other people. On that note, do you remember the pictures that I sent to you of the baptism? The girl that was baptized is doing so well and is making great progress in her spiritual growth, she has been using the Book of Mormon that the missionaries gave her some time ago and has nearly worn it out so she has been talking about getting a quad set like most of the missionaries have. Well there is a LDS book store in a nearby town, Sprigdale, that was having a sale on quad sets so all the missionaries in our district pitched in and got her a set and got her name embossed on the cover and all the missionaries that worked with her are signing it. We are going to give it to her next time we meet. It is going to be so cool. We don’t have anyone that is all that close to baptism at the moment. I have had the opportunity to extend baptismal invitations but none of them felt like they would be able to be baptized at the moment so I will extend it again later.
