Time Is Flying By


Im doing great!  Time has been going by super fast!  Chelsea is already home, I almost have 7 months on the mission, it's almost summer again, wow.  The weather has pretty much been exactly the same as it has always been.  Pretty good tempurature and a good amount of rain.  I think i wear short and long sleeves pretty much the same amount.  If it's sunny outside when i wake up i'll wear a short sleeve shirt but if its cloudy i'll wear a long sleeve shirt.  
The work has been pretty good!  Patricio came to church yesterday with his two daughters.  The wife had to work so wasnt able to come.  But i was super happy that he came!  He stayed for all three hours too.  So thats a pretty good sign.  Nobody else came to church though.  Probably the toughest thing for people to commit to and then actually follow through with is going to church.  People just have a really hard time coming.  Even though alot of them say they will.  They just dont.  So thats a bit frustrating sometimes.  
Well i really like the first presidency message from this months ensign.  By Dieter F. Uchtdorf about the Atonment.  I especially like the painting that is used.  The one with the angel comforting Jesus.  

Good job Emma for finishing the Book of Mormon!!!  That's super duper awsome!

Hey Father!

Im doing great!  So I just sent you a spanish letter today.
Well that's super exciting that Chelsea got home!  But ya mom told me last week when she was coming home.  But i bet that has been pretty fun!  Haha i kinda forgot about that Dickies story!  That was an interesting job.  
That's super good that you went to the Temple!  Nope, our President has been pretty clear that we are never going to be going to the temple.  Probably because there is just too much disobedience in the mission.  But i guess that will just make the Temple that much better when i get back.  
Thanks a bunch for those scriptures!  I really like them.  
When is your half marathon in utah?  And when is Ragnar?  That's super cool that you are doing Ragnar again.  Ragnar is very very similar to a mission I think.  Just a bit shorter.  It feels like a really long time, it's really tiring, you dont get much rest, it's mentaly hard, but in the end it was all worth it and you want to do it again.  

Love you too!

Tu hijo, Elder Eastman
