This week was great!
Tuesday we had leadership counsel and we learned about some awesome stuff… actually president literally gave a three hour class on who are the Jews and Lamanites and Gentiles… LIKE LITERALLY 129,734,692 scriptures to read and then reflect on. I learned some good stuff!
I am still on that gen conf high! I LOVED IT!! I am going through my notes and its the bomb! I am learning so much about forgiveness and it has been helping me become a better teacher and missionary. We got invited to speak at a seminar for ministers so we will see if we can go and take advantage of the opportunity.

This week’s General Conference was great! I loved it! I need to be more meek and loving to all people, to forgive more and to do that more often!!!
We went and played beach volleyball last Monday and I was totally prepared. I took sunscreen and put it on my face, especially nose, on my neck and arms and even on my calves. I was super pumped to not burn and it was nice! We played and after I felt fine! I had a ton of fun and we won a LOT.
We got home and my feet were hurting and I was like, “wow, my shoes are tied tightly! and then I took them off and my feet were ROASTED. Just so red – it was bad.
Update: March was a GREAT month of Braden’s mission, but we did not really receive typical emails detailing specifics, due to the situation described below.
Braden had some exciting news in March…he was accepted at Duke University for this coming fall. For a few weeks he spent most of his allotted time online discussing his decision (BYU or Duke) with us and reading about program options at Duke. After much prayer, consideration and some strong counsel (actually, it was an unapologetic command) from his Mission President, Braden is SO EXCITED to be a Blue Devil in the fall!
Braden will be attending Duke for his undergrad and majoring in Public Policy.
His sister, Emi is beyond thrilled that they will be together again!!
We do have some pictures that were sent from a hike up to some remote mountain villages :
The weekly email (not weakly email). HAHA
