Another good week in Texas...

Hello Family, 
       It was another good week in Texas. So you know how our area is doing some new pilote program thing that President Pingree has come up with? well yesterday during sacarament meeting and the 3rd hour Ward and i talked about it and explained what we were trying to do. during sacrament meeting we just bore our testimony and told them about ourselves but hten in the combined third hour we explained the pilote program and what it really is. It all went great and i think the ward is catching on to it a bit. nothing really has changed but our focus from finding to bringing back less actives but still finding through them. ya know what im talking about?! haha So this past week Ward and i vistited a ton of members and less actives and one Wenesday we were in the "ghetto" of our area, (and its not really ghetto, the whole area is nice) we were contacting less actives and aton lived in this apartment complex but we see this guy taking out his trash so we go and talk to him and we ended up talking with him outside for an hour but we have planned to go back to his apartment this week. so we had dinner with the releif society president on saturday and we told them this story and she was like supper excited haha i guess this ward has never really seen missionarys teach investigators or anything but after yesterday the ward is really into it now. Remember the Lopez family? we are seeing them this week too. we also found some cool bike trails along the bayous here. all the dirt that they moved from making the bayous, they put on the sides and people have made mountain bike trails on them, and they are pretty legit. it reminds me of the trail curt, landon and i rode the monday before i left. haha remind landon of that crash he had haha 2 20 year old guys mountain biking in dress pants, white shrit and tie. Oh so we did something that i never ever thought id be able to do. i mowed a lawn in January. and the grass was green and i got sunburnt a little.... in JANUARY!! haha. we were just doing service for a guy in the ward and mowing his lawn in on our to do list so everyweek we mow his lawn. i still have the touch to mowing lawns haha ;) that reminds me, how is agnes wilson and lilian stahlecker doing? is dad still mowing their lawns and helping them out? 
       Esplin called me on friday and we talked for a bit. he was at the grocery store with his mother while we were talking. i laughed at him, but he is coming back to texas in march sometime to go to that month long houston rodeo. 
   so i have something to talk to you about mom and  dad. let me know what you think. so last night at dinner we ate with an awesome new family in the ward and they are about 30 and have 4 little daughters. all the ages of my nieces and nephews but im getting off topic haha okay so when he was newly off his mission he started doing vending machines and gumball machines. so this is what i want to do becasue i have like 4 months in between me getting home and going to college so i was thinking about getting like 5 or 20 gumball machines and putting them around buhl and twin and then jsut managing them. he said they make lots of money. jsut a though id let you know about. ill be the candy man ;)
    well its been a good week here and things are starting to roll along. tell the moyes family hi, glad you got in touch with them. tell everyone hi and i hope eveything goes well when your office starts getting patients. well we be fixin' to take off. love yall
your son,
