Hey Mom! Hope you have a good day off today. First, I love the bulldog calendar haha and thanks a bunch! Also thanks for going into depth with my question about you and Dad. Means a lot. I can't believe you guys are planning a trip to come here in two summers! Yeah, it would be better to do it once I'm released so I can do stuff. I will definitely tell my friend what you said the next time we meet for a recent convert lesson :) I'll talk about the dunkage in the group email. I forgot about the prayer challenge you gave me, but I promise I'll do it this week. The African night is this coming Saturday. I love you a TON, Mom! Have a great week.

Hey Everyone! Don't have a ton of time this week. It'll have to be a little short since Yasli Nahle and I are going to a super Islamic place and buy some stuff. :) This weekend our really good friend that I mentioned last week (about traveling super far to church) was baptized. He showed up really early while we were setting up the "pool" and he started helping us! Even though that's such a simple little thing, I know that his helping set up his own baptism made it mean that much more to him. He was super nervous the whole night but as soon as he stepped in the water, he got calm. He is so excited and happy and hopes to be like us elders one day. The snow stayed pretty heavy until Tuesday night and now it's raining--a lot yayyyy... Saturday we got news that one of our volunteers is getting deported from Turkey due to visa issues. He has to go to Germany again, poor guy. Because he left, there are a ton of changes as far as who is with who, but as far as we know, Yasli Nahle and I are still together! Keep Yasli Peterson in your prayers, we don't know when he'll be able to come back. Well, hope you all have a great week. I love each and every one of you!!
