Finally I got the package you sent me haha. It was great, I've already read about all of the stories twice haha. Which grandma was it that we used to go visit in Blanding that always had those really good cookies that she kept in the freezer? I think it was Grandma Black, but I'm not sure. I love reading all their stories and everything. (Morgan asked for family history's so I made copies of what I had, if anyone has more he would love them.) Every time it makes me more excited to meet them someday. Haha
Good job killing the scorpion haha. (I killed my first scorpion this week-YUCK!!!)
I can't wait to go up to Utah after my mission and get to visit everyone again. I decided that after my mission I'm going to go up and live with Grandma for a few weeks so she can teach me all about family history and everything.
Don't worry about Courtney, I'm sure she'll be fine. It'll be good for her to go to camp by herself, it'll help her to become more independent, and probably to make even more friends. (Court's first girl's camp without Mom, you all know she doesn't sleep anywhere without me. That all ends this week., Pray for her and her leaders.)
This past week, the weather has been really cloudy and rainy. It was nice. It rained Friday a lot, then it sprinkled all day Saturday and on and off Sunday. It was a nice change, and it hasn't been as hot.
We need to find more people to teach, but when it comes to knocking doors and contacting, my companion always get lazy.
That's great that you are all going to go out with the missionaries. (Eric and the bishopric) It's going to be a great experience. I wish the bishop here would help us out some more. He's always busy though. He doesn't get home til 8 or later every night from work, and by then we usually are already teaching out last lesson of the day.
Sounds like everyone is doing great. Hopefully you and Mom can find some fun things to do this week so you don't get too bored haha. (Kyle at EFY Court at girl's camp)
This week, we went to go visit one of the less actives in our ward, and usually when we go teach, his wife isn't there, but this time she was. So we were talking to her and she said that a lady that lives in the apartment across the hall wanted us to go visit her, because she's been having trouble with alcohol and wants to quit, but alcoholics anonymous didn't help her. So the next day, we went and talked with her. It went really well. I think she'll progress, and she said the guy she lives with is interested too. And that's not even the best part. She's from Prague in the Czech Republic. It was funny when we went and were teaching her, because we taught her in Spanish, but you can tell that even though she speaks Spanish really well, it's not her native language, but since neither of us speak Czech it was the best we could do. Haha She has two little kids. A 7-year old boy and a 5-year old girl. We didn't see her son, he was in the other room watching tv, but we saw her daughter. She reminded me of a younger courtney haha. She had the similar facial characteristics and the same hair haha. It was weird. (Eric's grandfather was born in Czech)
Well, I hope you have a great week. I love you. Elder Janda
