July 30, 2012 {Email}

The time is going by way too fast here it is so crazy! It seems like everytime i think about what day it is it's always Sunday and we'll be like wow that week was fast. But everything is going really great!! I still can't believe in a few weeks i will be with you and all the family. It's been sad every night i think another day is gone. We go to close our day and i don't even want to because that just means i am one more day closer to leaving this place. I really don't want to leave. It's such a strange feeling and i think this will be one of the hardest things i will ever do. You're right about these people here in first ward, they are my family. Every one of them. I do not want to say good bye to them, but i have to. It's going to be hard.

Lucy and her kids are doing great still! Tonight we are going to have a lesson with them and hopefully that will be the big one where they tell us when they want to be baptized. It was amazing on Sunday Lucy couldn't come to church because her family was having some funeral for this old woman, she had to cook for it :(. But the amazing part was when we went to pick up the family for church we didn't know she wasn't going to come, and still all the kids were running around getting ready to come to church. They love it! In primary they are memorizing the articles of faith and singing "We'll Bring the World His Truth". They are so excited about everything with the church. We are just waiting for Lucy to commit to a date and i'm sure the rest will follow. I pray that it will be on the 11th so i can see it. 

Imeh, the rasta man is still doing good but these past two weeks he's had some tough conflicts on Sunday mornings. He still knows that his baptism is essential and wants to do it, just having a hard time with committing to a date. This week will be a big week for him to see if he's ready for it. It's gotta be up to him. Right now i am battling the selfishness in me to see them all baptized before i go. It's been hard to just have faith that when they are ready then they will be baptized. It's not easy. 

Today for p-day we played some serious basketball down by the beach. It was the first time we've played in a while and man we were all rusty ha. I also gotta throw the baseball around with Elder Durfey from Spanish Fork so that was awesome. Any time i get to pick up that ball and glove it just makes me excited. I miss baseball and i can't wait to just get out there and play again. 

Well, that's really all that i have to tell you this week. Everything else that is going on i will just wait to tell you in person.
