It was a ... (the public library here is at the middle school and one of the younger boys in the ward just peeked in and saw me as he was going to the bathroom and we had a quick "light saber fight" and he went on his way) HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAA !!!!! The kid loves Star Wars ! So anyway, we had an amazing end to our week !!!! We were having a lot of opposition but through it all we had a miracle. We were trying to see an LA that we have been trying to get in contact with but she wasn't there/it wasn't her place. So then we felt impressed to knock on these apartments even though I had many times before. And we found Johnaley and her mom. Her mom just moved there and hasn't been to church for years and Johnaley who is 23 was the only one in the family who was never baptized !!! She is so sweet and we have had a few amazing lessons where the spirit was so strong. She is now preparing to be baptized !!!!!! She has two really cute little ones (a boy 4yrs and girl 2yrs). I am always reminded of how this is the Lord's work and that Heavenly Father's children who are here on earth are seeking the gospel and are being prepared. I pray that you all prepare for conference and heed the words that we hear from the prophet and the apostles. Their counsel is the most important thing to apply in our lives at this time. Elder well... now its Kevin Ansersen (my trainer) :] He sent me a very inspired and awesome letter right before he went home and I am so grateful for his service and the good man he is. Keep a look out for him cause i know he will probably try to contact the fam. But we'll see cause he will be busy with school. I love that man !!!

It has been so great getting all the mail that I got last week. Thank you soooooo much !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Things are going good. I didn't write yesterday because today was transfers and so p-day was today and the library was open from 4-6 today. I loved the pictures Ana sent of Bubbas 3rd birthday !!!! I love that he always say,"your turn!" HAHAHA I miss my BUBBAS !!! We haven't been able to get in contact with Josh this whole week. It is a real bummer but I pray that he and his family will be able to all be sealed together someday. The weather has been so nice here lately. I am really looking forward to fall.

I LOVE YOU ALL !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Josh and the kids didn't come to church. :[ We are working hard and keeping the faith !!! We are going fishing with Ricky today and so I am pumped about that.

Thank you so much cousin Jeni for writting, it means so much to me. To answer your question: Yes, we do get a lot of opportunities to serve in the area I am in. Things like helping build a barn, chopping fire wood, helping people move, paint etc. Its really great ! I am happy to hear your family is doing well, thank you SO MUCH for your prayers. Love you !!!

Sister Wright !!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you for writting me as well !!! HAHAHHAA I died laughing when you said you call me "Elder exclamation point" Its so true !!! Then when you pointed out that my Maa does the same thing I again was reminded how much I am like my Maa. Not that thats bad ! ;] But thank you so much, it really touched my heart. Thank you for your love and support.

This is for the unbelievers. Stacy did pick me up before ... It blew my mind and I thought she would have permanent back problems from then on ! She is as strong as an OX !!! HAHHAA

I love serving my God !!!! The mission is the best thing I have ever done !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love you all !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Love you Maa, miss you a ton. Tell Stace that I got her letter on Saturday.

"Elder Bentley's dad sent me a post card since Elder Bentley has been getting so many. HAHA That was really cool of him and I look forward to trying one of his milkshakes someday!"

Things are going great !!! We finally were able to teach Josh's kids and it went really good !

There is this guy who we have been trying to sit down and share our message with since June and I have been able to build a good relationship with him. The only time we ever get to talk to him/when he is home, is when he is working on his diesel truck so we will help him and share some principles with him but never got to sit down and have a lesson until yesterday ! He is now preparing to be baptized !!! I really love this guy a lot he is a really genuine and humble guy.

That picture of Bwookwynn is so CUTE !!!!!!! Its funny how much she looks like JoJo ! Little Logan is such a cute kid too !!! And the bubbas with his baseball bat!

Rye is a wonderful place and the members are amazing. It was really nice the other day. I am looking forward to fall here, they say it looks like the mountains are on fire from the color change. SO SWEET !!!

I now know how Elder Andersen felt when it comes to training a new missionary in regards to the amount of mail they get. Every time we check the mail, its for E. Bentley ! He gets a ridiculous amount though. HA

I love you all !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
