Hey Family!!!
That is a pretty cool story dad!! I hope that you will get an elk. I really want somebody to get an elk because it has been a while since anybody has gotten an elk and, well, matt has at least a week to practice so that is a good thing ;Pi hope that you all can get an elk!!!!!!!
Thank you all for the letters again.  they really help alot. I am glad to hear that erik got a job and that everything is going well with him. That is cool that his boss is his former teacher at the MTC, that should be a cool experience!!!! I loved the MTC so i can imagine htat he is loving it there. That is also cool that alesha is doing good. I didnt know that Mindi was pregnant... i am happy to hear about that becasue that means that i will have another nephew before i get home!! that is cool!! i am happy that the family is doing good there. I am also doing well here in the mission. this week alot of walking took place, but it was a good week. We are expecting a couple of baptism here this week and also next week so we are excited about that!!! My companions last week is the next so we are happy to  have these baptisms. my new assignment is pretty fun. there are more meetings that i have to go to and i am in more contact with the President so i am enjoying the time. I am hapy that i have the opportunity to serve other and i hope that i can become the leader that my Father in Heaven wants me to be.  It has been fun so far and i am excited to continue to serve like this!!
Thisweek we had a good meeting with the president on the faith and the changes that we need to make. Faith is really a principle of power. if we have faith then we have to do something to show that faith and then we gain power, or maybe better worder, the power is given to us to do the things that our Father in Heaven wants us to do. I thought that is was a cool meeting and everything!!
I am glad to hear that everybody is doing good!!!! I love you all and i hope that you are all safe and are enjoying the companionship of the Holy Ghost. My prayers are always with you all. I am sorry that my letters are getting shorter... it just seems like there isnt really anything new happening in the mission. The work goes on  and that is the most important thing, right? I am safe and happy. I love you all so very much and hope that you all have a great week!!!!!!!
con amor
