Family...

Oh dear family.... haha the videos were just delightful.... Good to see Gavin's tooth has changed in size and that Kara's eyebrow's are still a little goofy.. ;) Haha jk. Well that's too bad that Wasatch got walked on by the ol' Timpanogas. Hopefully that's not a fortune of how the rest of the year is going to be. Is Joe Kelson playing again this year? What's up with that family? They all die and crumble off the face of the earth or change their names and move to Singapore? What's the real issue here. Is Wade gonna pull one of your moves and send me an e-mail a month and a half before I go home and tell me he wrote me on my mission? Enough of that haha 

So the videos are a lot harder to respond too cause I can't just scroll up and see what you said. But it takes too much time to view the videos again where I left off. So uhh kinda stuck between a rock and a hard place. But it is what it is. It was good to see you all though for sure... But I think the e-mail might be the route to take on this one. I talked to President about the conversation you had about the visit. He says he's still very tempted but I told him I was glad with his decision and it seemed like that brought him a little peace of mind. All in all though everything is well. 

I just can't even express how much I love the yellow paisley Countess Mara tie.... It has literally blown my mind all over the place. Thank you for your support in my missionary endeavors. Our week has consisted of a little more office work and doing things like that. We did get to go on an exchange with the Bakersfield Zone Leaders which was pretty good. Elder LaPlant and I got to work in the Stockdale ward. Which was pretty good. Our ward members are super good and super willing to help us out... The only obstacle that we've run into a little bit is right now we really don't have a ton of stuff for them to help us out with. But we're definitely working on getting people in the POOL! We did get to teach a guy named Kenny last week and I was with a kid who is going to serve in North Carolina. I believe the same mission that Lexi Densley is in. But anyways, he was a former and we knocked on his door and he was pretty friendly and invited us in. So we started talking about his past visits with the missionaries and he told us how he remembered a little bit about the Plan of Salvation. So we taught him that lesson again. It was good and it seemed like everything pretty much clicked with him and he'd told us at the beginning of the lesson that he didn't have any anticipations on joining the church. But we continued teaching him and at the end of the lesson we asked him if he had an opportunity to draw himself closer to Christ would he take it? So we invited him to be baptized and he told us he's already been baptized and by authority. So we explained the Restoration and he seemed pretty receptive. So we're going to go by again tomorrow night and see what he has to say for himself at this point. He's got a lot of potential to make it happen so we'll see what he decides to move forward with in our meetings. 

We've pretty much been committing all of the members in the ward to creating a family mission plan to get everyone doing member missionary work... It's been good thus far. We're going to have to see what happens here in the future. It'll be exciting when things really start taking off. But that's about all I got for ya this week. I know it's not a whole lot. Love you all very much and am grateful for all you do for me! I'll talk to you next week!!

Love,

Elder Scott
