Learning Skills

Hey Mom!
That sounds like so fun! Hahaha, I've known about being an uncle for a few weeks now, Jason told me! I'm so excited!! It is going to be such a fun time! Are you sure you're ready to be a grandma??

This week has flown by! I feel like I just wrote home but it's already been a week!!! This week has had some hardships though... Jaime, one of our investigators dropped us. It is hard to see that happen, but when he is ready, he'll be ready. We had an amazing lesson last night, and it was fantastic. We met with Juris and Stan, and we went over all the commandments, and it surprisingly went well! They are praying for a baptism date. We also started to teach a 15 year old who's grandpa is a member and he wants to be baptized! It is so exciting!

This week, Elder Cook and I decided to try out a new finding idea, so we decided to draw the Plan of Salvation for everyone in chalk at a park in our area. It was so fun! While doing it, so many people walked by and were really taking a good look at it. Hopefully it sparks some interest in the people of this area.

I also tried something new this week, and I gave myself a haircut.... And it went surprisingly well!! Elder Cook has a razor and stuff so he let me borrow it. We're going to go to Ross and Walmart today, so I'm going to look for my own razor so I can do my hair my whole mission. I figure 20-30 dollars once is better than 15 dollars to get it cut every month. It will also be a nice skill to have for when I get home and off living on my own.

We hiked Spencer's Butte again today! It is so pretty up there! It is a super good hike for some exercise as well!

This week I was thinking about a scripture in 1 Nephi 6, which says  
"4 For the fulness of mine intent is that I may persuade men to come unto the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, and be saved."

This is Nephi explaining his purpose. I want to and have been trying to make this my one only purpose while on my mission, and to have this as a purpose for when I get home as well.

I hope everyone's week goes by quickly and safely! Have fun at Jason's and Nicole's graduation!
