Things Are Really Heating Up Down Here!

Hey Family
so we had a good labor day yesterday, we still had our regular pday but everywhere to email was closed so we are doing that today. so we went to the sinclairs for pday yesterday and sis sinclair will probably email you the pictures.

 on sunday Scott and Nessa and their kids came to church and stayed for all three hours. i was way excited to see them and they were happy they were there.  we are meeting with them again tonight to finish our lesson from last week. they are still doing great and moving along. We’ve gotten like 4 referrals this past week from different members and so we are staying really really busy with covering both wards.

 president Pingree came and talked to me again in our training this morning and said its still all good for amy and brady to come and take us out to eat. so just have amy and brady email me their plans and when they think they can take us out, just so we can plan for it. it really wont be a distraction either. when i saw him that one night with chad and also bill and diane, after we left, i felt like it was a motivation and i felt really good. im excited to see them.

 so the the fires here are making the sky really smokey. i guess the major ones are in san antonio but there are fires not to far from where we are and its been sooo dry, everything is just going to light up and burn. Last night, after we got in for the night, we moved our couch on the patio and jsut sat out there for a little bit because its been so nice here lately. is been 92 past couple of days and when we wake up to go run, it feels so nice. i guess this summer has been the hottest summer on record and the average temp was 102 so i can say i survived texas' worst summer.

well i hope all is well back home. everything is going great in conroe and in the mission. im loving it and mom, i really am happy. thanks for everything. have fun back at school mom and dad.  And dad, i hope you like the new school you’re working at, im sure you will but just so you know, I’ll never wear Filer red :)  !
 have a great day. love ya'll

Helping People Find the True Church

thanks for sending Julie and Garrett an emial. julie texted us telling me that she had gotten an emial from my mother and father haha ;) thanks.  after i confirmed Julie in sacrament meeting, she turned and gave me another big hug infront of everyone and i guess from what a couple of members said, i got pretty red in the face but i was smiling :):), it was an awesome expereince for them, especially for her.  she she was so happy after that. definitely stay in touch with her and garrett cause i sure will.  we are going to lunch at garretts school tomorrow. i guess he is getting bullied pretty bad but we will go to lunch with him. Sis Sinclair loved your email you sent her yesterday. she texted us when she got it yesterday haha.
     so last monday night we had a wild pig barbq and we were expecting that to finish out the night but we get a call from someone in the ward and they are like "we have our friends over and started talking about the book of mormon and they want to be taught tonite" so we are like okay we will be over in like 30 minutes so we go and teach them and then again on thursday.  Their names are scott and nessa maddox. i asked scott on Thursday what it means to him to know that Joseph Smith restored this church for us today through the power of God and he says "well it means that i actually have a shot this time to find the true church for me and my wife." it was pretty cool and we are seeing them again this week. so last night when we got back from college station, we went to the Candy Cane Park and every night there are lots of black kids playing ball. we have been to play with them a couple of times and they know us pretty good but last night we show up with our missionary attire and just sit and watch them. we are trying to teach a guy name Andrew that writes childrens books and poems hahah and then we met a way awesome Jamaican named Donavan, i thought he was like 22 but he said he has 3 boys that are 17, 16, and 12, he is actually 40 but i told him i had a friend that is a missionary in Jamaica right now. Who knows, we might end up teaching them. well all is well here. i might be meeting up with brady and amy. Pres. Pingree came and told me that brady had emialed him and he said it would be okay for them to take me and espling out to dinner. OOHHH YEAHHHHHH. well everyone, take it easy, whereever you are. have a great week.
love y'all haha yup, im getting the texan "yall" down haha bye
