January 11, 2010

It's different here in California, because most people don't know much about the Church, whereas in Provo, EVERYONE "knows about it." But the reality is that the Utah Provo mission is the most baptizing mission (i believe) in the U.S. if not the world. And that is because people see the example of members all the time and see the kinds of lives they live, that they practice what they preach and so on and so forth. And there is a lot of fellowship. So don't be afraid to talk to him either though.

I have gotten no truffle spoons, not yet.

I've only got 12 pages left in my journal. So i need to get another one. You can mail me one, and I'll use something else in the interrim.

A lot of people areound here have turtles. I really want one. You're so lucky Erynn.

Regarding the Memory Stick. I will send it to you once I have a new one to replace it with, so that I don't miss any days of pitcher-takin'.

Jeremy Short's insight was a really good one.

I heard about a talk that Bruce R. McConkie gave at BYU years ago about the nature and relationship of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Ghost. If it is possible to get any set of hot, (or lukewarm) little, (or average) hands on it, I would appreciate a copy of it. It sounds interesting and things...

Dad, your hairs are like my hairs! shorty shorty short short.

I'm in a strange mood. I'm hungry. And the work here is really slow. WE find alot of people, but because our area is so small, they all either live outside our ward boundaries, or were found by Elder Edgington last transfer, when he was covering two wards (which means he could teach people in two different wards. we are now just over one ward, and so the investigators that he taught in the other ward, we can no longer teach). Or, when we do find people that actually live in our ward boundaries, we can't teach them because they are Young Single Adult age. so it's tough.

My tummy is grumbly. I'm hungry. ... (3 rhymes)

did you know that Elder Maxwell's language was so flowery that when he proposed to his wife, she responded: "I'm not sure, but I think you're asking me to marry you, if so, the answer is yes." Yeah, Erika told me that.

I got my hair cut today.

We play dodgeball everyweek.

I try to write paper letters, but haven't been too good at this very much lately. But I do voice record. I also write in my journal every day, or try to. I am pretty darn good about it too! You'll be so impressed and proud, and you'll think " wow, my boy knows how to write, I can actually read it and... " and then you'll trail off because you didn't know what point you were trying to make when you brought up the fact that I write in my journal...

Who are your home teachers?

Anyway, I'd better get going, but I'll be sending my journal home soon, and it is Chucky-Jam full of excitement and stories. Fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, chases, escapes, true love, miracles... mostly.

I'm a weird Missionary, I guess.

I love you all, thank you and continue strong.

-Elder Williams
