Week 26 in Farmers Branch, Texas

We loved being able to Skype with Jesse on Mother's Day.  We were able to talk to him for four hours!!!  Time passed so quickly and he never ran out of things to talk about.  He has an amazing companion who is like a brother to him.  I am so grateful for his companion and the example he is to Jesse.  I have seen so many changes just in the past couple of months since he has been with him.  I don't think Jesse could be so lucky to keep his companion for the next transfer, but you never know :)
We received pictures from 2 different members this week.  One was from Stake Conference and the other was from a sister who wrote us a sweet letter and sent pictures she had taken.  There are such wonderful people down there in Texas that take good care of Jesse. 

Sorry i didn't write last week. We kind of skipped e-mailing to do more sports and shopping and stuff. Sorry. Not much has happened in the two weeks.  One of the more exiting parts was that we did something different besides knocking doors. We did something Called Chalking. If you have seen the amazing drawings of other missionaries...............ours looks nothing like that. I was able to do it three times. Once the Saturday before last and then again on Friday and lastly just last Sunday. I will send some pictures later.
Lastly, the most important part of the week was that we are going to have a baptism next month. It is the D***** Family.  We are only baptizing the mom and son. They are so solid. We taught them the word of wisdom and the Mother said that she will stop drinking coffee and hasn't drunk it since. They are amazing. I hope that I will be able to stay to see them get baptized. Transfer calls are this week and most likely I will stay because my companion has been here 6 months already, but who knows. Love you all and have a great week.
