you look unbelievably beautiful tonight. You’re practically glowing. Maybe it’s the lighting.” Fantastic Mr. Fox
The quote for this week’s letter is referring to the picture of you and Jess mom! And you’ll have to watch the beginning of Fantastic Mr. Fox to truly appreciate the quote and the humor in it.:) It’s in like the first 5 minutes of the movie so you could just watch to there and then stop:)haha But it’s pretty much my favorite movie ever, so I don’t know why you wouldn’t want to watch the whole thing!haha Congratulations Jessie!!!!! That’s such exciting news! I’m sure that Utah is very excited that they landed you to play for them! It’s going to be a lot of fun to make it to some of your games when I’m home!
Well I’m glad that dad was able to get my letter and enjoy it. I’ll just be grouping the information for both of you into this one email for convenience purposes…just so dad understands why I’m not responding to his email address. I hope it was a great Father’s day for him!
The rest of the family sounds like they’re enjoying summer and being themselves! Trav and Aust stay in touch and it sounds like they’re both doing great. I hope that things go smoothly on the farm this week!
The 22nd is still a go for this weekend! We gave Ruth a church tour this week and it was pretty sweet! The stake center that has the font is an older building but is HUGE and unique! It was fun to go through it with her and explain the different rooms and church terminology. The baptismal font is SO cool as well!!! The newer church buildings are all pretty much the same and have the same looking fonts. This one has a unique set up that is so beautiful! I’m excited for this weekend and entering the water with an investigator for the first time!
Stake conference was a lot of fun and very spiritual. We had Elder Dungin and Elder Johnson visiting from the 70 for the change in the stake presidency. It was really cool to hear from them and feel there spirit fill the building. It’s always fun to hear from the general authorities because you gain such a greater understanding that they’re real people but also that they magnify and bring power to their calling that they’ve been set apart to. There was a lot of humour in their talks on both Saturday and Sunday but also a great sense of seriousness for their underlying message that they were giving. It was pretty humorous when Elder Johnson’s phone went off while he was talking and at the exact time when he was saying how we shouldn’t think we’re living wrong when everything doesn’t go right in our lives. He then references when another authority had his phone go off while giving a talk and he tossed it to his wife on the second row and said “If it’s Elder Packer then tell him I’m busy!”
Life is good in the city though! I love the work that we have going right now! We taught a few crazy people this week and ended up dropping our investigator with the memory problems…because we evaluated that he just wasn’t retaining as much info to continue progressing…but he’s still a great guy that really wishes that he could remember better! We also taught a jamaican lady that is so amazing! She’s so intelligent and knows the bible so well! She really enjoys what we teach and is going to be such a fun person to teach. We taught lesson 1 and it went REALLY well. We’ll be teaching the plan of salvation next and I look forward to it!
I love you and hope that everything goes well this week!
