hey it is good to hear from you! i am glad to here that everything is well with you all. i am excited to hear about breanna, i think the byui is great for her and the environment would be great being an lds church, she will meet a lot of great friends there. also it sounds like chad is doing great with the football, i hope that he gets better if he is still sick. my comp is doing a lot better, thanks for asking. we have had our problems, but we worked through them. today was transfer day. they called us last night on sunday like always and told us that we are both staying, so we are very excited for this next transfer. also my comp. is the new district leader in our district, so that is exciting and i am very excited for the oportunity to learn from this experience. also it will be a humbling experience for me, and a trial.... but i am happy for the oportunity to humble myself to the dust of the earth before the lord. i love the mission and i love the lord. this is a once in a life time chance and i wouldnt trade it for anything. i am greatful for your support, the support of all our family and friends, the packages that i have recieved and the letters, i love you all and am grateful for the time you all take to support me and remember me with your letters and you prayers. i did get to package from the farnsworths, it was great to hear from them too. i would like everyone to know that the church is true, that Jesus Christ the savior of the world and that he invites all to come unto him, and recieve of his mercy and love. that it is never to late to repent, and recieve of the forgivness that he offers. the atonement is a topic that i am learning about more and more everyday. i have learned that we can find great joy in repenting everyday and that the more we come to understand the atonement the more of a desire we have to share the gospel and invite others to come unto christ. i hope that jessie and kevin are doing well. the cabin sounds like it is coming along well. i hope dad is doing well with health and work and the calling, we are starting a new thing in our mission where we are going to work a lot more with the members, it will be great. and i will keep you updated. i hope you are all praying and reading together as a family. i dont need to tell you how important it is. and that a family that prays together stays together. thank you all for everything. 3 Nephi 18:18-21. love you all and will talk to you next week.
