Meet the Mormons!

Hi! (:

This week has really been awesome. We have been quite busy running around teaching people. Like ive mentioned before we have a few investigators that are progressing quite well and we've been teaching them the gospel like mad! Its been great.

So our ward mission leader, brother oakes, Is such a dang good missionary. He is seriously willing to do anything for anyone. He spends about 40 hours volunteer teaching the gospel in PRISON. Crazy! he just goes and teaches them for no reason. But anyways he built this home theater in his house so that the missionaries can come over and watch meet the mormons with their investigators. He has watched that movie 40 times as of yesterday! Holy cow its crazy. So we invited a couple of our investigators over to his house and watched it. It was a great experience for them and for us. This weekend Brother Oakes will probably be driving us and one of our investigators down to Omaha to tour the temple grounds and the trail center. He going to drive us... 2.5 hours down... just to help the investigators. now THAT is magnifying his calling. I hope to be like that someday.

We had exchanges this last week, and i went with Elder Nelson. He is so much like me, its pretty sweet. It was nice, we went around teaching the word like always! and During the exchange i had the opportunity to go to District Leader Training. President Gardner and the Assistants trained us on how to lead and several other things. They helped us see what the new focus and goals for the mission are and how to help our stewardship achieve them. I'm excited. and side note... My trainer, Elder Karl, Is actually one of the assistants now! So That's pretty sweet. I was trained by an AP. good times!

We went and raked some leaves for a member in our ward again, here is a picture of me just chillin in the leaves. There was quite a few leaves to say the least. but its good to get some service in!

Hope this week goes swimmingly! Love you all!

    I heard you had dinner with one of my elders from my missions. I loved Elder Jepsen, He was one of my favorites. I hope he takes care of you. If you want any dirt on him, let me know.
