HAPPY BIRTHDAY GRANDMA SUZIE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love those pictures Maa, thank you for sending those. Grandma looks so pretty.

I'm glad you and Pops were able to go to Stacy's bday / Spencer's homecoming party. I miss them all !!! This week was a great week ! The ward has been doing a great job showing love for Nancy. Saturday we had a BBQ at her place and invited some members of the ward over. She loved it !!! We cooked hamburgers and hot dogs. I was working the grill, I loved being able to man a grill once again ! It had been a while ... but I still got it baby !!! HAHA !!!

Yesterday, I had the honor and privilege to confirm Nancy and help her receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. It is so beautiful to see the happiness that has come into her life because of the Gospel. It is so important to share the gospel with others (Alma 36:24).

This coming weekend is a great opportunity to invite others to watch general conference and to help them feel the spirit and witness that there is a living prophet and 12 apostles on the earth today !!! I testify that it is true !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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

Yesterday was a GLOOOOOORIOUS DAY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We had 4 less actives at church and Nancy's baptism was beautiful !!! She could not get the smile off her face, it was awesome !! She even bore her testimony, the spirit was so powerful. She gave me a big hug after the ceremony and she thanked us for all we have done to get her to where she is. It touched my heart. She said how she loves how everyone is so happy in the church.

That is the most important thing that i share with people is that as they come to know the truth of the gospel and are baptized, they are SO HAPPY !!!! It has brought into my life that happiness and i am so grateful everyday for my Saviors mercy and sacrifice.

I am sad to hear that Kerry got released, but I know the Lord must have something else for him to do. I love you all !!!!!!!!!! (1JOHN 4: 7-9 & 18)

Hello everyone !!!!!!!!!! Nancy is doing GREAT !!!!! It has been a blessing helping her, it is beautiful to see how when someone truly humbles themselves, they are able to feel the direction from God and know the truth through the Spirit. My new companion, Elder Henslee, is a great guy, he is pretty quiet but we are doing well together and working hard. He is from SLC, Utah, and he is a Spanish speaking missionary so i am trying to pick some up from him. :] I am so HAPPY !!!! Its great to experience happiness the Gospel has brought me in my life and share that with others. I love you all !!!!!!!!!

Note from Tammie: I asked Tyler if he knew an Elder Bowman. One of our missionaries knew him from home and asked me to find out....Elder Clegg is from our area. His Uncle was Tyler's Branch President and had a huge influence on getting Tyler on a mission! He is also our next door neighbor!

Elder Rios is awesome, and he will be leaving tomorrow which is NOT so awesome !!!!!!!!!!!! He is being transferred to Pueblo. My new companion is Elder Henslee, he is a "Spanish speaking" missionary so maybe I will learn some Spanish. I don't know him very well but I am looking forward to serving with him.
I did not know Elder Bowman but I have heard great things about him. We are teaching a lady right now named Nancy and she is doing great !!! She is so sweet and it is great to finally see hard work pay off. This has been a great miracle. She is preparing for baptism for the 18th of this month !!! I thought I told you that Elder Rios is from San Antonio Texas, maybe I didn't. I am pumped because Elder Clegg is coming to my zone and he is training a new missionary. I also recently got a letter from Austin Kennedy which was really cool. His little girl is so cute ! Elder Rios has to pack so I gotta go but I love you all !!!!!!!!!!!!!
Tell Stacy I am sorry but i will write her soon. I have been really busy but her last letter was one of my favorites and I am SOOOOOO HAPPY that she will be receiving her endowment soon !!! Tell her I WUV HER !!!!!!!!!!
