hey y'all well this week has been full of fun i was able to have the experience of being a zone leader for three days...

we went on exchanges for the labor day weekend, and had a really cool experience with the area they put us in, there were so many people that we were able to connect with that have never heard the name Jesus Christ before.... that really hit me in such a way that my heart felt sorrow for them. we were able to connect real well with the ward and was able to get a lot of member referrals.

My knee for the past few weeks has been acting up and has mad it difficult for my to walk for a long period of time. the other week i woke up in such pain, i don't know if i kicked the wall or what but it hurt so bad that i was in tears, i honestly didn't want to tell y'all because i didn't want y'all to worry about me...

i have been using tiger balm every night before i go to bed to help it ease some pain through out the night.

i have been thinking for the past few days that the reason being while it hurts so much could be from the surgery that i had, but i really don't know.

we had a mission wide fast this past Sunday and President Foote had asked openly to all the missionary's if there was anyone on our minds that the mission could pray for, i had said y'all, Mckenna, and a bunch of the investigators that we have been teaching.

and later on the call there was three that had said my name as well as everyone back home. i don't know about y'all but i have felt all of those prayers, the past few days and i'm extremely grateful for the power of prayer, and the great joy and peace that it brings to our hearts.

so haha my suit i had gotten a 44 regular suit jacket and 34 wast size suit pants with the length of 34 as well,

if i happen to get a joice of what color it is, can it be black with pine strips if possible.

it's great that Sarah and Jonwayne are going to the temple that's really exciting :) 

can y'all say hi to Chelsea for me, :) if that's okay to do....

It's really cool that dad was able to come home and enjoy some family time and not have to worry about stressing over work, has work picked back up lately, or are the fires still going strong?

i haven't been able to hear much about it except what i get from members and there weather report that they give me. 

we have been praying hard for the northwest so they would have some heavy rain come there way. 

i have my camera this week so i'll send some picture to y'all here as soon as i can. 

Well i Love Y'all so much and i am very grateful to be out here on the mission, and to be able to re percent our loving savior and older brother in the gospel by bringing others to the light and great blessings.

i'm also proud to be able to re percent our family as well as the west coast.

hey y'all......

I'm really happy for McKenna I have had her in my prayers tell Jacob and Brianna that I love them.

wow they moved to Portland, I wander how they'll like the cold during the winter... aunt Josey and uncle Ethan haven't lived out west have they?

will y'all be able to see them more often then not?

how's Chelsea doing is she home from her mission or does she have some time still to go? can you tell her dad that I said hi??

yeah my companion an I are getting along real well and I don't think as of right now there are anyone that makes fun of me.... in the mission if there was I believe that they all are home now... but everyone though in the mission knows who I am and at least have has told the mission President that I should be in leadership..... part of me is like no way man haha but the other half of me is like bring it on you know I feel that I would do good in a leadership position, the couple of conversations that President Foote an I have had have always ended up talking about either training or leadership so I have a feeling that it's going to happen here soon...

I have had an awesome week we cleaned shop on our top 40 list of people the ward council has given us to go an see and or predict weather or not they live there....

we has 14 people at church this last Sunday and also had the Primary Program that was really fun to enjoy.... the ward has pretty much adopted me and at least 12 percent of the ward has told me to come back and visit them after the mission. haha I was like if Georgia was to loose the humidity and have like 75 degrees weather every day, along with rain at least a couple of hours every day.... then maybe haha then I said that I would think about it.

oh oh  guess what has happened the past couple of days???

okay so .......... at our last few dinner appointments, we have had that chicken and kale soup that mom used to make you know the one with bacon in it.

we also had chicken and fish tacos, then we had Navajo tacos and they weren't the same as the ones back home but they were really good and brought back a lot of memories.

I'm really glade that the coos has had rain and that the weather has gotten better, sorry that work hasn't been booming as much lately for dad hopefully it picks up again

Any way I hope that this week is better for all y'all and that school is full of fun this year good luck and remember who y'all are and to be a great example to your friends and each other I love all y'all so very much and miss y'all lots.

tell next time.
