Subject: Ha the letter for the Week!!!! 1/28/2010

This week was great!! It all started out on Friday when I was given the opportunity to give a blessing to one of the deaf sisters that had bronchitis and couldn't breathe real well!! it was a great learning experience for me! She is better now!! As for the rest of the week we are preparing again to teach the lesson of the restoration again at the TRC. This week I have a new set of companions to teach with! they are just temporary so we can learn different teaching styles and preferences while the rest of the Elders are still learning ASL. Those that are still learning ASL will teach in English for the Next 3 weeks, then I will be able to teach with my full time companion Elder Bohman. Anyway! This week I get to teach again with Elder Mully, But also with Elder Daniel. We have been practicing quite extensively for tomorrows lesson!It is gonna be great! We are specifically working on teach as simple as possible the doctrine! it is pretty difficult but it is great!!! Also this week i bought new scriptures! we get them almost 1/2 price here! so when you see money from my bank account dissappear you know where it went!! :) anyway!! Lots of Love! All is well here!!! God Bless!! James 1:5

Hello from the MTC! it is start of week three here! Thanks for all the letters and the Cookies mom!! :) they were great!!! I got one of them and then they disappeared!!! (Room mates) Also thanks for the package today i got in the mail! I had to hide it to ensure I got some of it before it was gone!!! As for the departure date it is the 16th as of now, just depending on when the Mission president is in need of me! Me and My companion Elder Bohman are both going together to Arizona! so when he calls we will be going! As for people I have seen that I know! ha 6 people! Scott Yost, Kace Redder, Ed Christenson, Kari Merrill, Nicole Graham, and Jordan Majors! Thanks for the Air freshener it is a big help already!!! yes if you can please send a Light pot freshener! it seems to last longer than the normal fresheners!
As for who you can give the Email address to, in the White handbook it says:"You may communicate with your family and mission president by e-mail." So that is to your discression. My teacher said that Grandparents are included, but the handbook doesn't say either way!
