Wow, Kate is like going pro or something. Do you think she is going to shoot for playing University level? What a cool sister to have. Tell her that I love her and pray for her every night. Not much happening right now? Is it weird only having two kids at home? That is a sign of age you know? Kidding mom.

This week has been a stressful one. Chris is getting baptized on Saturday, which always makes things a bit more intense, but it is also really cool. We then have two more people, Rex and Sammy who are preparing for the week after for baptism. A lot is happening, it make me happy, but also tired. We also did two exchanges this week. Meaning we swap companions for a day. We do a lot of those as zone leaders, it is a really cool way to minister to the zone. I got to work with two missionaries I had never worked with before, Elder Gunnel and Elder Hagedorn ( you can imagine what it was like serving with him for a day with our last names). They are cool, both from Utah one from Provo and the other from Cache valley.

I love you and I will send some pictures now, because I think that gets me out of emailing more. ha,

This week has been a fantastic one. The zone is doing well and we have been seeing some good progress from our investigators. We were able to teach a lot of lessons to investigators this week with a member present. Those are the best lessons by the way, nothing really compares to those.

The weather is starting to get colder and it is getting darker earlier, not good news for a missionary. It is good here. We do not get thunder storms really. I think there have been about two the whole time I have been here. It just rains all the time and it really is not even a hard rain, more of a drizzle.

Ali is loving life a University isn't she? ha. She really likes to tell me about it. I am glad to hear she is so happy. Today, we are going to the driving range with one of the Bristol District, that should be a load of fun! It is nice to be able to where normal clothes, but when I wear them I feel weird and out of place. Weird huh?

Well, pray that we are able to see miracles this week. I love you mom and hope you have a great week. You are the best!

We still get time to teach people. Last week was just moves/transfer week, so that is when everything goes a little mad. This week we had the conference that Elder Christensen and I are in charge of setting up, it went well. We also had the AP's stay at our flat two night in a row because they were going to our conference and wanted to a work over the day after. I don't think I told you, but one of my friends became an AP a couple weeks ago, so it was good to have him around. He is a great missionary and teaches me a lot when I am with him. I will try to send a picture of the two of us although it always seems to fail.
Chris is doing good. He came to church this week. He actually brought two of our other investigators with him, so that was pretty awesome. It is always a good Sunday if you have 3 investigators at church. The two other people that came are Rex and Sammy.  They are this young couple we have been teaching. They are doing really well and progressing in the gospel. The zone is also doing good. Overall I just feel good about how things are. I love this ward! We have a very supportive ward. It is so young, which is not too normal for English wards. It makes things feel really fresh. 
Grace and Kate look really cute. I can not believe how old they are, it's weird. Kate is in 8th grade. I remember being in eighth grade, it is a wonderful year, haha. Oh, I am finding it so hard to think of things to email about. Ali emailed me this week. You're right, she is a good girl. I have a lot of respect for her. I think she is a lot more mature than I was when I went to University. You should be proud of her. I am going to go now, but you have a good one mom and I'll hear from you next week.
Love you,

Thanks for the pictures. I don't have too much time today, we are taking a sister that is going home this week towards the temple, so we have little time to do much else. It is really weird to see Ali going to University. It scares me a little. I can't imagine what is like for you. I emailed her this week and last week to hopefully give her some nuggets of knowledge that I learned from uni. I also gave her Alma 37:35-37. She'll do great

This week was a good one. We got a new car! ha. It is like brand new, definitely the newest car I have ever driven. We taught Sammy and Rex this week for the first time. They are a younger couple. Really cool though. They both came to church this week. Chris is still doing really well. He is progressing nicely. We have a good ward that is working to push the work forward. Thanks for all you do. Have a good week and love ya much.
