May 26, 2014
Hey everyone,
      I'm glad to hear that it was a good week for everyone. I'm glad that you had fun on your trip mom and dad. I can imagine that it was nice to get away, eat a bit of junk food, shop around, etc. I know that I always like to do that kind of stuff. That's so crazy that Stu is back. It seems like it went pretty fast. It sounds like you've got a busy month coming up with Sun Valley and all that good stuff. I always did like the Sun Valley trip. I hope that you all have a fun time and that you can find a lot of cool things to do there. That´s crazy that the Johnsons are moving. I´m glad to know that you would tell me if you were going to move though haha. That would be quite the surprise though. Like dad said though, the house might be a bit different when I get back. The open house sounds like a good idea. Hopefully you guys can bring it to life.
      We did have a few good things happen this week though. I don't know if you remember the family that we contacted a while ago in a taxi. The mom has been coming for a while now, but they all came to church this last week and they said that they are going to start coming to church together every week. They all have baptismal dates too. We also had another cool experience. There is a recent convert in our ward that is 14. She stopped coming to church for quite a while. We visited her and just asked her flat out what happened. She said that she likes going to parties and that she doesn´t want to miss out on all of the fun. We told her that that sort of stuff doensn't bring us happiness and that we had seen the effect that it could have on people. We were very honest with her. We didn't really feel like it sunk in though. We went to visit her a few days later and boy had she changed. She was actually happy and smiling, she had her young womens medalion on, she told us she was reading and praying and was going to talk to the bishop. It was a complete 180 degree change. Now she is coming with us and her sister to visit people on Sunday afternoons. It was a pretty cool experience. We still don't know R. very well. He is like an onion that you have to peel back a layer at a time. We don't know what to believe of what he tells us. I'll let you know when I know more though. He is a VERY humble man though. Oh and this area is super wierd. We've seen 2 Ferraris and several Lamborghinis here. This area isn't rich either. It's super wierd...maybe a lot of drug trafficers. Well that's about it for this week. Love you all. Thanks for all your advice. }
