Hey mom ! It's been a pretty good week a little slower than usual but definitely a lot of disappointment ! The greatest thing that happened this week was my favorite family here in Elko the husband is trying to quit smoking and we went and taught a 15 step stop smoking lesson and the first part of the lesson they have to get rid of all of their cigarettes and he and his family destroyed over $60 worth of cigarettes and to this day he is one week clean ! It's amazing to see how much faith can do and the goal is to get him and his family to the temple in the next year ! It's awesome, but other than that my hands are fine and we just stay here in Elko for zone conferences but we had a goal to get 5 investigators this week and it was going good and then people just shut us down so it hasn't been my favorite week but it's a new week so we'll see what happens ! We are going hiking today with the zone out to Lamoile Canyon so that should be fun ! Anyways, thanks for all you do mom and have a good week and enjoy boating ! love you mom !

Hey mom ! So I heard about the news and that's really sad but I hear stuff like this all day long and God has a plan.  This week was really crazy for us, we went hiking out in the Ruby Mountains and it was awesome ! On Tuesday we went to go help a less active guy do some tile work but when we got out to his place there was a big fire in his back field and so I grabbed a shovel and fought a crazy field fire for about two hours and stopped a hundred yard section and there were two helicopters dropping water and fire trucks and it was crazy ! I wrecked my hands pretty good and got them all blistered up but me and my companion saved two houses from burning down so that was my Tuesday afternoon.  We think a kid was playing with fireworks and got out of hand and it took off but we were the 4th people on the scene and it was already big by then ! The rest of the week went good we saw a lot of miracles and found a couple of new investigators we're going to start teaching and it's been a hot one this week ! Anyways thanks for all you do mom and have a great week ! love you mom !
