Jesse E-mail June 2

its good to hear that everyone is doing good again! and the arizona heat has finally showed up! i already told dad but i really miss the Arizona heat! i would do anything to trade it for the weather here! the humidity here is terrible and just lets in all the cold, is doesn't matter how many layers i tend to put on it finds a way:P it mostly gets cold in the nights and then the sun comes out in the day and warms it up a little. but im pretty sure that colder weather is coming soon i just have to buy a really warm sweater or something. but other than the cold weather i am doing better than ever! a lot of things happened this week that really tried my faith but now more than ever i know that my heavenly father loves me and is watching over me. it doesn't matter how far down he lets me fall, if i do my part he will lift me higher than before. the closer that anthony gets to his mission the more excited i get as his brother! i just want to tell him how everything is in crazy detail but i know that as much as i say it wont come close to what he is going to experience in chile! im SO stolked for him!!! probably the saddest news we received this week is that the only worthy priesthood that we have in the branch is that of the 1st counselor in the bishopric and my companion and i. because the branch president is shipped in from another ward to help us out. so we are few but that makes my job that much more important. i need to live my life so that i can be the lords hands here on earth. and i can say that spiritually, I've never felt better:)

hello everyone!!!!
So this week has been great i love the ward i love the people i love the area i love my companion i just love everything and we are going to the temple this month so thats great we are going on the 24 I am so excited i miss the temple. We have been trying to have new ideas on how to share the gospel and sister nelson and i decided to go and chalk the plan of salvation on the park side walks it was great and we have also been putting scriptures on the side walks around town. so if anyone gets bored at the dollar store maybe you could pick up some chalk for my companion and i. but these are all ideas. it has been really sunny lately and it has been great we have been seeing and talking with everyone we see the work is great and i love being a missionary its kind of a big deal!! well hope you all are having a great summer see you in almost 7 months.
