Man - I just miss the snow so much. I think when I come home, I'm just gonna spend like a straight week snowboarding. That's so crazy that you guys got a snow day a week before Spring Break (ha ha). It's pretty funny here because there are some people who when it gets to be about 75 degrees, they start to complain about how it's cold and then I just like to laugh at them and I tell them they don't even know what cold is!
I got lucky on Tuesday at Zone Conference and I didn't get called on to talk (ha ha). But, I was prepared. It only had to be like 5 minutes long. It's hilarious how before the mission a 5 minute talk seemed like a big deal, but now that's a piece of cake! But each person in our Zone had to memorize a paragraph from the Family Proclamation and prepare a talk based on the paragraph. So, I got the third paragraph which is the second longest, but it wasn't too tough. It was cool to see all of the old freinds that I have made at the Conference. There was one of the elders from my MTC District. I would just love to be comps with him, but we´ll see if that ever happens. I don't think Pres. Hall gives much attention when people ask to be comps with someone.
I'm sending a pic of me and the sign that there is as you come into the city. It says "Welcome to Rio Tinto". This week was a pretty normal week. On Tuesday we had the Zone Conference. All of the talks were about the family and the importance of the family in God's plan. It was an awesome meeting. I think everyone got a little trunky thinking about marriage and everything (ha ha). My Branch Pres. has a new born baby girl that is just the cutest little thing. I just can't wait to be a dad (ha ha). But, I still got a little time left before that comes. The parents of the young woman still didn't give permission, but we will see if they change their minds. Yesterday at Church it was awesome to see a man, that the Lord baptized through me a couple of weeks ago, pass the sacrament for the first time. I was so happy!! But, other than that things are pretty much the same ol' same ol' here - just workin' hard to get these people dunked here. I love you sooo much - have a great week!!
