Hey Dad :) Sounds like you all had a fun week. I hope we have a wedding this week. I might be paying for it, which means you might be paying for it :) $150 is definitely worth opening the door of salvation to 3 people, don't you think? Well, The other elders in the ward had a baptism on Saturday, so that was good. Hopefully it will be a kick off baptism and many more will follow. We had two of our investigators who have dates in June there to witness it so that was great. I shook the hand of an Apostle on Saturday! Elder Ballard and the other members of the 70 who spoke are obviously men of God. Powerful speakers, very inspiring. The future of missionary work looks to be through the internet ( and also through more member involvement. I should have brought my notes so I could tell you more about it. My bad. It was definitely a high-light of the mission though, for sure. This week should be pretty crazy, I'll be going to a leadership meeting up in San Jose on Fri. Then 2 other days, I'll be going on exchanges to fulfill my District Leader responsibilities. THEN HOPEFULLY WE'LL HAVE A DOUBLE WEDDING AND BAPTISM ON SATURDAY! Today we got permission to drive over with a member to Hwy. 1 to drive on the coast and see what there is to see. Hike around a bit and take pictures. That's awesome you were able to resurrect the old Hobi cat. Ha ha, rubber duck yellow- I got to see this :) How many turtles do we have now? That's crazy. Who'd a thought? Well thank you for the prayers. They are definitely appreciated. Love Elder Flake

Good Morning Dawson, We have had a nice weekend with Danielle and Steve. They had Steve's brother Shawn get married so they were all here. We took them up to the Pioneer park and Andrew showed them how to repell down the Dixie rock. The weather has been really nice and great for doing things outside but now it needs to warm up a bit more so that we can take our newly repaired sailboat out to the lake. We painted it "Rubber Duck" yellow and it looks pretty good. We had a good Fathers and sons outing up at Veyo pool this weekend. The river was pretty high so we were more careful with the little kids around the river but it was very pretty and we had a bout 100 fathers and sons there. The turtles are multiplying. It is spring and the little turtles are hatching and popping out of the ground like daisy's. I am going to be busy this next month with a few jobs that I have lined up so I am glad for that . I am looking forward to finishing the job up at Duck Creek with Andrew this Summer. We have been praying for those you are teaching to work towards baptism. It is great that you are busy and having success. Have a great week Love Dad

Hey Dani! Thanks for the pics? Say hi to St. George for me and give Alexa a hug and a kiss for me as well :) Mom tells me that Alexa recoginizes my picture and says hi to me by name! That's great she hasn't forgotten about me :) I told Dad that we might be having a wedding of our own this week. Two faithful investigators, Reina and Odilia, just need to tie the knot so they can enter the fold of God through baptism. We've been having trouble getting all the original birth certificates so they can get their marriage licenses. We'll hope and pray we get it all figured out by this weekend! So how's life? Where are you reading in the scriptures right now? I just read about the Anti-Nephi-Lehi's burying their swords. The faith of thos people! Well, I love you and hope you enjoy your time in George Town. Love Elder Flake

que tal?

I'm writing your from St. George today! We got into town last Thursday evening for Steve's brother, Sean's wedding. He married Cari Sue Green from St. George in the temple. Friday night was the reception at the huge Cox mansion by the springs and then Saturday morning they had the wedding and after that the luncheon. It was a wonderful time. Steve had to fly home last night to go to school this morning. Alexa and I get to stay until Wednesday afternoon. Alexa sure love grandpa and grandmas house. She likes to look at the fishies and jump on the tramp and run around. It has been nice to be in sunny weather and I already have a sun burn. I hope everything is going well for you! If it's not, pray and work harder ;) We sure love you and miss you!

Love, the Jacksons
