Hey so I decided to just add Grandpa Kitchen and Grandpa Ellsworth's emails into the list with all of yours so that way you don't have to worry about forwarding it Dad. It will just get to their email without any problems. Well sounds like you all have had a great Spring Break. It's funny because here when people hear "spring break" they think of the spring breakers that come down from the U.S. to Cancun and Vera Cruz and all those places to party. Here in Mexico their spring break is all this week. They call it Semana Santa (Holy week) because and Easter and all that. Almost everyone is going to take it off and not work. We may have kind of a slow week because of that. Thanks for the pictures that you sent, dad. It looks like you all have a good time in St. George and at Zion's. I forgot just how pretty that place is. Mom that's CRAZY that our missionaries have so many wards!! 15 wards and 2 stakes...wow I feel overwhelmed with 2 wards haha I don't have anything to complain about. That's cool that Brett came to the ward to speak. Yeah everybody seems to be getting home now. HAHA yes I know Megan Line she was a good friend. We didn't hang out very much, but I know her well. That's cool that Cam is dating her. She is a good girl. Dad that was a pretty funny story about what Kit did. She just ran into the neighbor's house huh? That's funny.
Well this week was pretty busy. On Tuesday we had the zone meeting. We had to get some things together with that last Monday. We only had one day in between to prepare for the zone conference. We had to get a food ready for 40 people and everything. It went really well. President, his wife, and the assistants came. President talked for a moment about something he said "he didn't want to talk about." He talked about how the new President and his wife will be arriving soon and he wants us to pray for them to arrive well. President Reeves is amazing. I'm going to miss him and it will be really strange with a new one, but oh well. The new President's name is President Stellmon...I think that's how you spell it...from Idaho. After the zone conference and all I was reflecting about how we did and I feel like we did a great job. It was Elder Christensen's first one as a zone leader. I've been teaching him "the ropes" to being a zone leader. I realized just how much a mission teaches you. I feel like I'm developing leaderships attributes that I never had before at home. As far as our area...we are struggling a little. All the people that we find end up not being too interested. We had a ton of appointments fall through as well. It's okay though we aren't going to get discouraged. We are going to keep working hard to find those that need the Gospel.
Well I LOVE YOU ALL. Thank YOU for everything that you are in my life. Each and every one of you have played an important role in my life. I am grateful for all of the support and the blessing that our family receives on a daily basis. I can see the hand of the Lord in our lives. He blesses those that keep his commandments...it's the way it is :) Keep going strong! Conference was great! Study it up! Nothing better than living modern scripture to keep us on the straight and narrow. ¡Adiós!
