Jan. 27th Happy Birthday Jacob!!

Jacob's birthday is Today!!
My birthday is the 28th ;-)

haha I miss you. it looks like your party was a blast! I woke up to a cockroach in my front room. such joy lol. anyway some cool things going on I guess. There is this little girl that looks and acts like Annie! its the craziest thing. like same mannerisms and everything haha but she is such a sweetheart just like our Annie, she's just Mexican instead haha! We had to drop one of our investigators this week and I'm pretty bummed. it's just so sad to see someone who has a desire to change and become more, lose their desire. but its okay because we have another couple families that are really awesome investigators. One family, their dad died in October and from our fist visit I just felt the spirit so strong, she gave a prayer and i cried haha i could just feel our heavenly fathers love for her and her family. She has a strong desire and we have a baptism date for her and her 3 sons! So i'll let you know how that goes. My companion has been good but he just comes from a different culture so it can be a little different. I'ts been a good experience for me.  I could see how some people could get brought down from the differences, but i don't. because why would I? I just try and be better because of it. Well I don't really know what else to say. I'm not very good at writing stuff about what I'm doing. I just ramble. but I'm learning a lot. A family yesterday said they couldn't believe that I have only been here 3 weeks because most elders that have been here this long don't understand or speak as well as I i guess that's pretty cool. anyway. I love you mom. so very very much. I hope your birthday is as amazing as you are!!
The cockroaches are bigger here!

  1. Karen, When our boys were out we started a 'Fab Five' tradition because sometimes they didn't write as much a i wanted to hear! We would ask them (5) questions - I found lots of ideas online under journal prompts. Anywhere from simple easy ones - what's your favorite color to what super hero would you most want to be & why, etc. We started doing it every week & then John thought we should do it every other so it didn't take the place of relating mission experiences to us.
