Mother! and family of course. yes easter was solid. and the week was too. We got a new bishop last week, and i don't know if it was the new bishop, or if it was the fact that it was easter, but that sacrament meeting definitely made the top 5. So good. no better song than "i know that my redeemer lives" it's my favorite. Anyway... yes i got the see's candy. actually they send it with ice packs. so it stays. and they are great thank you! yes i got the ties in time. and yes i wore one for easter, and yes i got some complements thank you. yes i know elder prestwich. he's a stud. awesome missionary. teaching is going well. yes found a few new investigators last week. Elder Legrand is doing awesome. oh! we went to the easter pageant on wednesday. it was so awesome! there were so many people there. the spirit was so strong right when you walked on to the grounds of the temple. and the production was excellent. Mama jean was there. She is one of our investigators. i don't know why she likes to be called that, but we have no problem with it. she is hilarious. anyway, she went to the easter pageant and loved it. this is the lady that hated the book of mormon and joseph smith, and then after the miracle of the book or mormon, and the spirit that accompanies it, she knew it was true. this woman knows and loves the bible like no one you've ever seen. and soon she'll love the book of mormon just as much! anyway, we saw Elder Zwick there. he spoke in conference a few weeks ago. He talked to us for a while, and then proclaimed to our ward mission leader so that we could hear, "these are the best lookin missionaries in the entire kingdom!" He was speaking to me and elder haus. so this past week my neck has been super sore trying to lug around this giant head of mine. But anyway, mama jean talked to elder zwick for a few minutes about joseph smith and the book of mormon. it was amazing! anyway... yeah!" i realized the other day that mother's day was coming up. and in sacrament meeting they said it was may 11, and i was like, "hey! that's my mom's birthday!" Dad better do better than a bug zapper. short sleeve shirts are doing fine. we have a washer/dryer in our house. love you much!
