Conference and Things

Hey Family!

Well first I'd like to wish Cameron a happy belated birthday. I hope it was a good one. And that his baptism went well. I think it happened? My week was not too bad. We did not see as many people as last week seeing how we had conference 2 days straight but it still wentpretty well. 

We taught Pam, Eric and Spencer the Restoration and it went pretty darn well. Eric was being a little immature at times, to be funny, but hey, I do that too. But anyways we taught the lesson, committed them to read the Book of Mormon and pray about it and we then watched the Restoration video because I think that does a better job than us at explaining it. Spencer had a lot of questions so that was good. It showed that he was paying attention and what not. 

We are going over there tomorrow to do some service for them and hopefully we can teach a bit while doing that and set up another time for a lesson. We did not invite them to be baptized (we either spaced it or weren't prompted to, not sure) but we'll get that in hopefully next lesson. Which will probably be the Plan of Salvation. But yeah everything went well and I'll keep you posted with them. 

The other people that I have mentioned, we have not been able to see. Christian and is mother haven't been home whenever we go there. Perhaps they were still in Phoenix seeing a doctor. But we tried several times throughout the day and there was no answer and then drove by at night, right before heading back to Logan and there were no lights on. They live in Harlan which is 30-35 minutes away from Logan and we usually only get there once a week for District Meeting. But we'll get in their door one of these days. 

Things are going alright with Scarpa and I. Nothing much has changed. He still does some things that get on my nerves but whatever, no one is perfect. Like now, for instance. I specifically told him not to get on any unapproved websites, and he's sitting next to me (he might not think I notice since there is a divider) playing a lego building computer game. He loves legos. He has bought easily over 100 dollars worth since I've been with him. Yeah and nerf guns. He also gets on amazon when he thinks I don't notice. But whatever I'm going to lead from the front and not from the back. Hopefully one day he'll get the idea. 

Oh speaking of amazon, there was something I wanted you to check out. If the music for Noah, was any good I might want the soundtrack. I got the soundtrack for the movie Son of God, last week, and it's aight. I mean it's done by Hans Zimmer so that automatically makes it good but not my favorite. 

Don't worry about ordering me the soundtrack for Noah, just let me know who the composer is and if was any good, and I'll find a way to get it. Probably Walmart, next time we are in Council Bluffs. I suppose we could go there today. 

So conference. It was pretty good. I honestly enjoyed the previous 2 more, but it was still very good. And yes Elder Bednar's talk was probably my personal favorite. Holland's was pretty good, President Monson's was as well, as was Uchtdorf's, as was Christopherson's, as was Presiding Bishop Stevenson's. There were many good ones. 

I will admit I "got a bit sleepy" during the middle 3 talks in the last session haha. But yeah it was good as always. You can't really go wrong with the Prophet and Apostles!

Well anyways, I need to get going. I hope everyone has a great week and stays safe. I love you guys!
