Sorry this email is a bit late in the day; Elder Markert and me, as well as some other Elders from Idaho Falls, went out fishing today at Birch Creek with one of Elder M's converts. It was amazing! It was a new experience since I've never been fly fishing before. And it was so great to be outside somewhere beautiful. I enjoyed being able to just sit in the shade and fish around for a few hours. I even managed to catch a couple trout! How cool is that?
There was one that really didn't want to let go of the fly, and I got fed up and said to the fish "Look, either you let go of that fly, or you're going to be on a wall plaque singing 'Don't Worry, Be Happy' for the rest of eternity." Amazingly, that worked, haha.
Well, in other news, life is good. We've being working with a really nice kid out in Newdale who's been an amazing investigator. He is super receptive and always has good questions for us when we come to teach. Unfortunately, he's currently on probation, so we won't be able to invite him to get baptized until next month. For that reason, I won't be giving his name.
We also received a couple referrals for some less active members in our area that we're going to visit as soon as I finish up here.
I love you all so much and I pray for you every day. I hope that life is being good to you all.
Mom, I know that you can survive a few more weeks until the end of school. Dad, I'm sorry to hear about your shoulder, and I'll be praying for you.
Until next week,
