Last Letter!! 2 days!


Welp, 

This is just fetching weird... I'm glad you wrote cause I don't know what I'm doing with myself haha. I'd love to give you all the details but might as well just wait until the middle of the week... Haha I'm glad you'll get yourself a delicious Tiger Burger. I miss those things. This weeks game plan sounds pretty good. I think since it's fast sunday this weekend I might see if Mom wants to go with me to Vernal Saturday and go to the ward I grew up in out there and bear my testimony and let everyone know I didn't fall off the path and I went on a mission haha. But Thursday sounds perfect. We'll work on getting through that day first hahaha. I actually rode a bike the other day for a few hours up in Mammoth cause our truck was getting fixed... So we'll see how far we can go on Thursday haha. 

I saw some highlights at Chili's on Saturday of the Heat Pacers game. So that'll be a fun series to see the rest of the way through. I can't stand the Spurs they just need to lose.. How's KD doing? Not like it matters to ask you now cause their won't be a reply e-mail next week... Haha I'm sure you'll enjoy the Seguras when you meet them. They're good people. I enjoyed being around them. Well just want you to know I love you and appreciate all you've done for me. Looks like we'll be seeing everyone here in the next couple days. Love ya lots.

Nic, 

That's fine if some lady pulls some shenanigans. Where will she film my testimony at the house or at the airport. I feel like it'd be weird to do it at the airport... Not exactly what one would deem a spiritual environment. But whatever works works, I don't mind. I look forward to seeing everyone on Wednesday and we'll see how it all works out!! Love you too!

9 days left!! May 19, 2014


Sensai,
When on earth was the last time that Indianapolis made it into the conference finals? Is Jesus coming soon? Haha that's crazy they're up on the Heat 1-0... I need Lebron to do well cause he's going to be giving me my retirement in 20 years hahah. I'll explain that next week. That's awesome that the Chrome has been tearing it up. Gotta love horse movies.... Kind of haha.
I'm glad the firm didn't go under the past couple years. I wouldn't be out here if it wasn't for Preston and Scott inc. haha. It's been a crazy two years... From the very beginning you never think you're going to amount to anything and that the end is so far away. I still have a hard time believing that we're down in the single digits for days I have left. A couple of the Elders I was in the MTC with that stayed in Ventura, they go home this week. When I made that realization last night I kinda freaked out in my head. It's super wild to think that it's coming to an end. At times you can't wait for it but at times you don't want it to happen either. Quite the contradictive lifestyle being a missionary haha. I'm glad everyone has done so well the last couple years and been able to enjoy life. I might die before I get home though... Our truck is in the shop all this week and we're going to try and find a few bikes to make it happen and if that's the case I'll be biking up mountains on mountains which could very well cause me to have a heart attack at the age of 21 because I get tired just going up the stairs hahaha. But if we die before our journey's through, all is well right?

This last week was fairly uneventful. We had a couple good people that we started teaching then we got a call from one of them saying she talked to her pastor and feels she needs to stay with the church she literally just started going to which is super lame cause she promised she'd be at church this week. We also started teaching a little native girl who we've been helping out for a month or so. We started out doing service for them and then finally got to teach one of them last week which was good. We also have an investigator who's an alcoholic and he was totally plastered this last week and was taken to the hospital and he called us telling the nurses that we told him we had a place for him to stay and that we'd come and pick him up and take care of him and stuff.... None of it was true. Then we called him the next day and he left his phone on the bus so we went and grabbed it for him and took it up to his place which is like 30 minutes from where we live and he wasn't home no one really knows where he's at... So that was interesting.... But other then that I anticipate this week will go by very quickly and we'll be dining at Cafe Rio before you know it! Haha
Like I say every time haha I really appreciate all the support you guys have given me over the past couple years. It's been a long haul but I know I wouldn't have been able to push through without the faithful prayers of all my family and the continued guidance and support i've consistently received... I love you all so much and can't wait to see you next week. I'll send a quick one next week if you reply but if not I'll just see you on Wednesday... Love you tons!

Boss Man,

Well glad you got to enjoy a weekend of frolicing through the daffidels with your pals haha. I don't think either of those words are spelled right but that's okay. What car were you in? Last I checked you were to big to fit in the back of the Benz... And if your pumping 150 I have a hard time believing you were in a Yukon haha. Gavin had a couple ball games as in baseball? Is he still swingin the bat like an idiot at the plate haha. That's cool the Pacers made the playoffs... Didn't see that one coming haha. Or Washington what the heck has happened in the last two years? Everyone else is pretty believable haha. I'm not a horse racing fan either but that's cool that Chrome won. That's a big chunk of change for a flipping pony.... What's wrong with people these days? Haha
I'm glad work continues to stay busy. I'm sure you'll have no problem keeping a steady pursuit of sewing people out of their minds. Everyone is so sew happy these days that there's gotta be work haha. Sounds like all is well in the happy valley. We're doing good up here in the Sierra's. We're having Sandras baptism this Friday so that'll be a delight. We have interviews with President tomorrow which will also be enjoyable. Sister Wilson is bringing me banana bread so I'm pretty pumped about that haha. I'm going to try and skype at about 4 your time next week. So if any of that changes I'll just text you or something. Then after that we're on the home stretch. Today is the start of the last half of the transfer. Kind of super weird. It'll be fun though. Other then that we found a couple cool people last week. One dude who's super into golf which is always fun. You can try to swing a few rounds with those kinds of people and they typically pay haha. We found another guy on Saturday who we committed to be baptized and he came to church yesterday which was awesome. He's trying to change his life around and struggles with that booze stuff... So hopefully we can help him out. We also had a cool encounter with a lady we've been trying to teach. We talked with her on her porch and we talked about some questions she had and as we hit a few points in the plan of salvation out of no where she just busted out crying and thanked us for coming over. She's not investigating yet but she's totally going to get baptized I can feel it. But other then that all is the same up here. Happy late birthday. Hope you got to enjoy some nice filet mignons or something tasty haha. Love you tons and will talk to you next week!
Love

Elder Scott
