February 22, 2010

Sam is referring to his grandfather's 80th birthday party. We took him out to dinner in Cedar City where he lives, then the next day we drove down to Las Vegas and took him to see Tony Bennett.

Hey family!

Sounds like you all had a blast this weekend! I'm jealous you all got to go to Vegas and see all the family (although I'm where I want to be). I'm glad you all had such a good time.

This week was not too bad. Our baptisms actually did not happen this time (problems with the interviews) but they should all be ready in march and we are planning on baptizing a lot next month. Nothing too eventful happened outside of the baptism. We're are still working hard and finding those that the Lord has prepared for his message. This week we've decided to focus a lot more on getting the branch involved in the work. Right now there is not a branch mission plan in place and the members dont really know how to do missionary work so we will help them to get involved.

O ya! I got your packages, thank you very much!!! (it seems like every other email i'm thanking you for another package haha). I actually havent seen them yet, the couple just called and let me know that they picked them up so i'll run over there and grab em tonight (an advantage of living across from the couple). THANK YOU!

Finally, Happy Birthday JACKY JACK! I bought you a present but you wont get it for another 15 months or so (sorry!) but I think you will like it. Be sure to write me and let me know how your birthday went! How old are you now anyways? 15? 16? I love ya little bro.

Ok well I think thats all! SOrry, nothing too exciting this week. I'll probably think of someting i couldve written after I leave. O well. I love you all and cant wait to to hearform you again!
