August 29, 2011


Good to hear from all of you. It should be getting cooler there soon I hope; it seem like it has been just sweltering for ages. That is not fun, I'm not really look forward to that when the summer rolls around here. I've heard about the hurricane and the earthquakes over in the States, it is interesting stuff. It makes you think. It seems like, as I've been out here, I hear a lot about the natural disasters that are going down around the world but I guess that is all there is to talk about when you see religious people. Give the Coombs family my regards, I miss them. That is crazy that Madeline's has grown that much. I can't imagine what they're Christmas photo's going to be like. I need to send them a letter.

Good to hear everything is running well, dad. It will be awesome if you get to watch Shorty’s plane while he's gone (on Mission). I'm sure you're just having a great time flying all around the metroplex and all. Once you get your skills honed you'll have to take mom for a ride again just to see if things have changed over the last couple of years. (note from the Mom: that won’t be happening…)

This week has been really good, actually, it has been great. We had Zone Conference on Wednesday and we drove the car down and handed it over the Mission President. It was a sad time. The training though was really good. It lasted from about 9am to 3pm but it was great. The new Area Councilor, Elder Pearson, was there and he's a great speaker. We learned a lot and it was very uplifting. They also introduced the new I-am-Mormon campaign that will be airing from September to the end of the year. It the first ad campaign the church is doing outside of the US and it is going to be huge. Go on to if you haven't gotten the chance to see it yet. They have some good I-am-Mormon clips; it is going to be interesting to say the least. We're excited and hopefully the campaign will help get the church’s name out and to clear up some misconceptions.

We also have a couple of baptismal dates set so we're really excited and hopeful for them. Things are going surprising well and the Lord has really blessed us. It is great to have some success!

As for Warwick, we really don’t have the roaches like we did in Mt. Isa and it is still a little cool for the toad or frogs to be coming out. It has been cooler and rainy lately but it is all good. It is already getting warmer and it will be hot before long. There's not much to do here on P-days so we basically just chill in the flat and sleep. It’s fun. Warwick is a small town; we've done some window shopping and walked around town but again, it is a small place.

Thanks for the emails and the uplifting words. I'm doing good. Love you, talk to you next week.
