April, May and 1st week of June in Globe


Hey everybody,

Well I am still in Globe and Elder Owens and I are still companions. It will be nice because it 10 degres cooler up here than down in the valley.

Things are going well, we have a baptism on the 17th, so that is really good! We are still helping her and her husband to stop smoking. They have been doing really well at it. I just hope she doesn't smoke because it will have to be pushed back if she does. She has been doing really well at it so I don't have to worry too much. And everthing else is going well. It like 80's now but it feels nice so I'm not complaining.

We do tract in Globe because it's not like Gilbert where its 75% members. We try to find people other ways if we can but we tract if we have nothing else.

The baptism did go on Saturday and it was really good. A lot of her husbands family came down from Winslow, AZ. It's a small ranching town so the people that came down were big cowboys with their huge mustache and they all had their black wrangers with there cowboy boots and bolo ties; it was really funny. But anyways things are good. We are looking for more people to teach, like always, so that's fun. Mothers day is coming up so keep thinkin of those questions! I love ya all!


Things are going well down here it hit 90 degrees yesterday, so things are starting to warm up. We had a lesson with this guy that we were teaching a couple weeks ago and he just disappeared. Then he showed back up and he wants to be baptized so that was really cool.

Well so Jack had a cigarette so we have to push the baptism back but he still wants to be baptized. So we are planning to set up another date soon.

Another transfer and I am still in Globe with Elder Owens. That is good, it will make six months at the end of this transfer. But I really like it up here. We haven't put Jack on date yet but he has a set date for quiting smoking so that will be good. Oh yeah, you will like this, I gave a talk on Sunday. That makes 6 on my mission so far. I have spoken in all the wards that I have served in.

I enjoyed the pictures that you sent. Sam is getting pretty big now!

We got to go to the Mesa Temple this morning as a zone. We had to spend the night down there because we are an hour and a half away from anybody so that was fun. Well things haven't changed too much this last week we have started to teach one new lady who wants to get baptized. Her name is Dina. She just told her friend one day that see was going to church with her. And she came and really likes its so that was really cool. Last Sunday they broadcasted the Gila Valley Temple dedication so we got to watch that instead of church.

We still are working with Jack and are going to try to put him back on a baptism date this week when we meet with him again. So... Yeah that's what's happening here in Globe. It is getting a little hotter now but its not to bad yet. But anyways glad everything is going well back home. Oh yeah, Aaron and Emily look a lot older and Aaron looks bigger than John. I'm sure John loves that! Ha Ha. Well anyways love ya all!!

Love Jason


Hey everybody,

Well things are going good down here. It is starting to heat up alittle bit outside, but not too bad yet, though it might be in a couple of weeks! Yesterday we had our last interveiw with President Craig. That was really cool, he plans on following up on all of us after our missions. The new mission president comes the first week of July. He is also from Bountiful and lives on Bountiful Boulevard. His name is President Howes. So maybe Grandpa or Gordon knows him.

Well nothing too new. We are working with the same people and they still want to get baptized we just have to work over some obstacles. Im sending a few pictures i hope you like the one of the lizard mom ha ha!
