Happy birthday Everett, Claire, and Ed!!!!

ok so i am officially moved into our new place! so send all mail to 801 E Frontier St.  #29  Payson, AZ 85541. 

I should be sending a package home soon so mom be on the look out!!! 

Transfer news. i am still stl but my comp is Sister tippery. she is from portland, i love her! 

so everyone i dont remember if i said this already, but dont sennd me real letters after January 19th... i love you, but i dont want you to send a letter and me not get it!!! 

Im feeling better than last week, but still my one hundred percent... hopefully we figure this out soon, but im not too worried... so mom dont be too worried either! 

our area if okay. we are really trying to focus on less actives. most of them are not very willing to have us over, but we will go to those who will,. we are inviting them to return or go to the temple. not just come back to church, but to make further covenants with Heavenly Father... 

Im really glad we have a lot of service here. its so fun and i love helping others out. i really do want to do humanitarian stuff when i get home, maybe not in africa because i dont want ebola, but somewhere!!! 

oh i have a memory card to send home dad. its not full but its old so here you go!!!

 I love all of you so much! i just want you to know that!

okay so i went and had some blood work done... now mom can testify that i hate needles and that my blood hates leaving my body. but the needle didnt even phase me this time and i filled the two viles  of blood in like two seconds. it was a blessing! Now to wait for the results!! ill keep you posted..

so everyone here has cancer... its really sad!!! no more cancer!!!!! I hate cancer!!! 

So i am doing well! my health is fine! just the usual unanswerable stuff, but that is nothing new for me:) someday i will have a perfect body;)

I love you all and hope youare all doing wel!!!

hello family

so im sick... again... thankfully the stake president up here is a dr and he is going to look into figuring out what is going on. so tomorrow i am off to get some blood work done... 

dont panic though. im not dying or anything( well as far as i know). they just want to rule some things out and try to figure this out. i havent been healthy since april...  that is a problem. 

Okay so i am not being transferred as far as i know. but i am moving! the apartment we are in is not safe so we are moving to a better place! the new address is 801 E Frontier St. #29. the rest is the same. so there is that!

okay you might have noticed some changes on my facebook. no we dont have it yet. but we were asked to get it ready. i cant talk to you unless you have a referral for me. but dont be worried if you see im on!!! 

Things are going pretty well here. we went to the Phoenix temple open house with an investigator. It is a very pretty temple. the baptistery is my new favorite!!!! It is super pretty! go look at pictures!!! 

well i really dont have much to report since ive been sick... but is am alive and well!!!

I love you all!!! choose the right! and be happy!

well i am still alive... i dont know why i wouldnt be alive, but just so you know i am alive! 

I got the package from dad.. it was great! thank you! the socks are great and i love the music. 

Grandma Judy and Poppy i hope you have great birthdays!! Poppy I hope you are feeling better!!! i LOVE YOU TWO!

so i have a question... who sang the devil went down to Georgia? like the good version from stone mountain? 

so this week we were doing a service activity and a pole fell and hit my arm!!! i have a supe cool bruise from it and it really hurts, but it looks awesome! 

really not much happened this week. our appointments all feel through... we spent a lot of time driving from heber to payson... i had to drive at night, in the rain and fog, while having to watch for elk and deer... on mountain roads... dumb!!! but we lived... 

### transfers are on the 28 of this month, so like two weeks. so keep that in mind. 

Also after january 19th dont send me letters or anything! mom and dad you can, but everyone else no! i am not telling you when i am getting home and i dont want you to send me a letter that is will never get! so i love you all, but ill just wait to talk to you when i get home!!

so life is great! fall is weird here. its cool, but there isnt much color change. i live in the pines... lame... oh well. you enjoy it for me! 

I really dont have much to say. it was a pretty uneventful week! and this week is looking to be the same. it is fall break here so everyone is out of town... so work will be slow for a few days... 

Well I love yall! I hope you are all loving the blessings of the temple! because i know you are all going as much as you can!!! enjoy it! I wish i could go to the temple more! but someday i can! 

HAve a great week! be safe and healthy! I love you so much!!!

hello everyone!

well J and K are baptized!!!! I got to go down for the baptism!!!! It was so wonderful! they are both so happy! and it was great to see the ward!! The drive down and back was horrible, but everything else was amazing!!!!

the drive down is an hour and a half of curvy, hilly mountain roads!!! I hate it! but im getting better at driving those roads.. so that is good. this week I have to drive on similar roads 3times!!!!! shoot me!! but oh well. had to learn someday!! it would be nice is we could disapperate like in Harry Potter...

so Meet the Mormons is my new favorite movie!! go see it and tell everyone you know to go see it too! to see where it is showing go to It is soooo good!!!!

HAPPY LATE BIRTHDAY CAROL!!!!!!!! sorry I miss it!!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BROOKE!!!!!! have a great birthday!

mom and dad. I have not yet received your package... but it could come today!!!

I think I want to get into kickboxing when I get home... ive always wanted to but never told anyone. I also want to go shooting and get a carrying license!!!! so that is some new things id like to do!!!

I really think I will go to school in Utah! lets get real there is a much better selection of man in Utah and I don't feel like byui is where I should go!

conference was amazing!! I loved it! I loved Elder Scotts talk! but I really loved all of it!

so we had mlc( the mission leadership meeting) and as part of it we went to the temple and they showed the old old video!!!!!! like the one from the 70s!!!!! awww I am not a fan... but it was cool going to the temple!!! I love the temple and am so excited to get to go more when  I get home! and to continue to make and keep sacred covenants!!!!!!! GO TO THE TEMPLE OFTEN!!!!! IT IS THE BEST PLACE ON EARTH!!!!!!

Life is great! Arizona is great! it is really cooling down. I need warm clothes! my only hesitation is that if I get transferred back to the valley I wont really need super warm clothes like I need already up here! when we were in the valley is was over 100 outside! up here it only gets to the low 80s and that is the heat of the day. mornings and evenings are cold!!!! I don't know what to do, but will need to figure out soon!!!

well time is up!!! I love you all so much! I hope you all have a great week! go to church, read the scriptures and pray as much as you can!!!!!
