Good afternoon family!
This week went pretty well. I was going to surprise you about the iPads, (see*below) but I guess Pres Whipple beat me to it. We also got new devices in our cars that track our driving, and are supposed to warn us when we are speeding or not wearing seatbelts. However, we don't think that ours works, because it never tells us anything. What are gas prices up there like? Because up here, they are in the $1.50's. Also, I saw that the Seahawks lost Superbowl... not that I care;) Dad, that is so cool that you are the missionary prep teacher! I will definitely send suggestions as I think of them.
Anyway,, we had our last district meeting with Elder Hall, who is dying (going home) next week. That evening, since we didn't have a dinner appointment, we went to Winger's with Elders Hall and Reyes, and I had the best bacon cheeseburger I have ever had. Later that evening, we went to meet the G family, who the English elders had been teaching. The kids will be baptized later this month, and hopefully, so will their mother. We also visited a potential investigator, who lost her dad to cancer when she was young. She gave the closing prayer, and she called us "wonderful gentlemen". We haven't been able to teach her again yet, but hopefully we will this week.
That is about everything from my week. All is well! That reminds me, the other elder that Elder Erazo trained is Elder Sewell, so we both have "well" in our names. At zone conference, Elder Erazo made the joke that "All is well with my sons!" (Son is missionary jargon for someone you train). I hope everyone has a great week! Hasta luego!
Elder Jared Weller
* The missionaries in Jared's mission are all getting ipads, which the parents have to pay for. We don't mind. It will be something that Jared gets to bring home with him when he is finished with his mission. Jared is super excited. He was hoping his mission would be one of the areas that got them!
