William's June 26 Letter

2012 June 26
My week has been busy with the mission split and a lot of my friends going. It’s been hard.  We had the last of Elder Lunt's firesides or ones President will be at, they are so amazing.  We’re getting a new president and I can't go see Ray and Johnny any more, but I got to see them all today. We are emailing really late this last p-day cause of all the mission split parties that went on today. We had a lesson at a family’s house, they lived in Spokane and are going up for a month or two to spend time with their grandma, down hazard road, it’s the same way I’d take to get to Jeff’s house when I was at Jodi’s  I think, or it sounds the same. But it was cool to find that out not so cool that we can't teach them until they get back and they really want to get baptized here otherwise I’d send the missionaries up there. We had our last mission conference with President, Jon Schmidt came and performed live as a departing gift, it was amazing! We TALKED a little bit, he is a high counselor over Ray's ward, so that was fun to touch base again, I met John Bytheway, again, he told me how he got into the fireside thing, which I think was neat. We haven’t had a good solid lesson in a while but we’re working on referrals, I’m throwing a party with the Whites on Thursday for Garrett and Flake! Lunt too, he is a great elder he put on the musical firesides, they were all super spiritual, after the last one elder Medvetski played phantom of the opera and a sister sang the girls part, and Bridston just came in with the guys, it was so epic (and I am using it appropriately this time) all in all I had a good week, just a little sad at the coming of the split that’s all.

My week was busy too, not as busy as yours. Mia was baptized and we found a family too teach, we are having trouble getting them committed but they are good kids, I hope they made it to church, we had to go to Mia’s confirmation, which was at the same time as their church. We had some fun with the district and we had dinner with a family that runs a bakery out of their house "Mama Crimin’s Cookies" she makes really good cookies (we had pie). Our house is cramped, and I am getting kind of sad because next month I can't go to see Ray and Johnny anymore. But the gospel is true and I am excited to serve here. I am happy to hear every one is having fun, and that I have another member of the family. Thank you for the letters, love you lots!

My week was great, we had a great district meeting and we are planning a party for Elder Flake and Elder Garette. We got a lot of paper work done, and found Mia a baptism suit that fits, and we received news about a family wanting the gospel and we have a lesson tonight with them. So much fun, my companions great, Goodrick is crazy; the other two are too but it’s fun living with them.  We get some good insight from each other. We have lots of fun finding, teaching, and practicing with each other. But we are making progress and things are going well.  We went to Bountiful today, stopped by Johnny and Rays to say “hay”. They’re doing well, I kinda miss this area but that's all good, making friends and teaching the gospel is great. It's that simple, be a friend to everyone and they will come around eventually and remember everything translates, I've learned that you can teach with good analogies of anything and people remember better when it's related to something they care about. I love you a lots!

Well the allergies are just as annoying as ever, but I am going to buy some medicine for them. My week was good we got Mia ready for baptism and she is exited and rescheduled it with our other investigators. I had a great week, although I had to wait to get a new card to buy thing, but that’s ok I got it now. We’ve been exercising lately too so I feel better. We are working with the auxiliaries to find investigators and things are going good. It’s weird to see "limbs" there that are about the size of the trees down here! Well, Love you lots!
