November 18, 2013


Well shucks... That's no fun to hear about Klar but I'm glad everything went pretty alright. Did I ever spend any time with Klar? The only people I remember spending any time with in Richfield outside of the McCallister's would be Jeff and his family.. I can't picture anybody else really.. There was one time we stopped at someones house on the way back from some trip and we spent like 30 minutes there to shower and get cleaned up. Maybe I'm the only one who remembers that haha. I chuckled at how you compared his love for horses though. Glad to hear you got to spend some time with him before he passed. I can only imagine you're very grateful for that... I'll have to tell Sister Hawley that you saw Kelly. It's funny all the connections that are there. Goovin coming through for the win on the ball team huh? Who's the new coaching staff at the high school? Where's coach Mag at now? Did he stay the coach after Norman Hayter took off or have they been jumpin coaches a little bit? The Y sounds like they have a decent squad the U hasn't really been any good for quite some time now so that doesn't shock me that they lost. That's a pretty crummy record for the ol Jazz... Goodness gracious. I hear this Jabari Parker kid is super good. I thought he was like a freshman though? Or is he up for grabs this year? You'll have to let me know how the Iwoa State game goes. That'd be a fun one to go see. 

So you'll never guess how much temporal fun that I was able to have in the last seven days! Haha that's probably not what you expected to see in this e-mail. Last Monday we were blessed with the opportunity to go bowling. Which was just delightful. Bowled pretty good for not bowling in 18 months. We got to play unlimited games for two hours. So we got four games in with the four of us. Won the first three games with a score of 159 the second with 144 the third with 156 and the last one I lost by two pins cause I didn't pick up the spare and it was 149 to 151 the conqueror being Elder Hudson. But it's alright we made it happen. But then today this is where I'm really gonna get ya, President Wilson called off our meeting a little early so we could go play a round of 18 with Elder Pruett who's one of the senior missionaries here in the office. It was super sweet. We played out at Buena Vista Golf Course out in the boonies but it was a ton of fun. Didn't play super well, but I was thoroughly impressed with myself for not swinging a club in 18 months. The first nine were pretty brutal but shot about a 45 or so on the back nine. Got just about all the drives off the tee box pretty good and my iron game was pretty swell... But my chipping and putting killed me. Nothing has really changed there haha. So no practice, unfamiliar clubs, on an unfamiliar course. I'm proud of myself haha. Elder Pruett also paid which was quite awesome! So temporally it's been an awesome 7 days.

As far as missionary work goes... It's been a lot of office this past week. We also had Mission Leadership Council which will take up a whole day but we did get t
o go to the temple on Friday for Elder Neff's birthday which was awesome. We did like a 3:30 session so when we got out of the temple it was dark and it was cool to see all the big city lights and the skyscrapers and stuff there in Santa Monica. Ate at a little jewish place called Lennie's close to the temple. Pretty splendid. Our ward is really getting on the ball as far as missionary work goes. We had like 5 nonmembers or so at church this past week but the only problem is 4 of the 5 live in the South Stake haha. So they're not getting baptized in our ward. It's okay though I think the gospel is true over there too... Hopefully haha jk. So nothing supersane. We got to meet with one of our investigators Chris yesterday though. That was pretty good. Poor kid would get baptized today if his mom would let him. We had a member send a fall arrangement of some flowers to try and soften her heart a little bit. But unfortunately she didn't take that very well and got a little upset with him haha. Flippidy jibbetts... Thought flowers got em every time. Apparently not though. It's been a pretty good and fun week though. This transfer is now officially half way over which is crazy. Thanksgiving should be pretty enjoyable and I'm excited for it. We have a couple families that are desirous to hook us up with some delicious turkey and potatoes.. But that's about all I got. Tell Nic I got the debit card today which I genuinely appreciate. My other one was falling apart. Don't miss me too much. The next six months I feel are going to go by way faster then the other portions of six. Kinda weird that by the next time I hear from you it'll officially be the big 18. Life goes on. Love and miss you all quite much and hope you have a stupendous week! Talk to you soon!

Love,

Elder Scott
