Letter from Elder Burns 9/12/2010

Dear family

This week has been amazing. I can't Believe that Jake is leaving on a mission It's something that He really needed in his life and he will surely be blessed. Last Friday, we found 2 investigators. Their names are Christland and Francis. They are African Refugees from TOGO!!! I thought that was really cool because both grandma and grandpa served there.

Well, we set a baptismal date with both of them for the 9th of October, and they came to church yesterday. It's amazing that they know everything is true and are very, very excited to bring their families with them to church next week, so we are looking forward to that.

I did get the memory card back, so thank you for sending it to me. I should be sending another one back soon with some music cd's that are no longer approved. I thought I would tell you that president Simmons allows people to have guitars, so I have gotten one and am learning how to play it. I am practicing during the extra time we have at lunch and getting really good. I took the initiative to cut my own hair today. It looks really good because Elder Radovanovic has a nice pair of WHAL clippers. So I will take some pictures so that you can see how good it looks...LOL. I think that is really funny that a chipmunk crawled up onto his hand and stole the nut. I have always wanted to go to Timpanogos caves. I thought it would be really cool. I haven't gotten a fish yet, but I will soon. Is Jared still doing well with his schooling? How is his karate doing? Does Breanna have a BF? How about Crystal?...NOT she is too young:).

well I am out of time for now, but I love you guys heaps and look forward to the ever approaching Christmas call...LOL It seems far away but it will come soon.

That's all for now,

Love your son ,
