(I'm just now able to update Elder Fowler's blog. We had a great time seeing him and hearing his voice by Skyping with him on Christmas Day. He's doing really well. In fact, he said he wasn't really wanting to Skype because he wants to stay focused on what he is doing there as a missionary and doesn't want anything to distract from that. Which kinda hurts as a mom to hear, but if I take myself out of the equation, then I see where he is coming from. I wouldn't want him to be anywhere else right now and I admire him for what he is doing. I know he is a good missionary and I am so grateful that he wants these two years to be the best he can make of them.)

Sooooooo today we had a zone activity where we did a gift exchange. Then afterwards, we went and played paintball. It was fun but because we finished really late, we don't have time to write today..... but all is well and I will send pics and all that jazz next week. But I really enjoyed seeing you guys yesterday!!! It was fun!!! Also, I am very sorry if I offended you that I wasn't looking forward to skyping you. I do love you! and I love what I'm doing here. I just want to be the best missionary that I can be and don't want anything to get in the way! I hope you know that I do love you so much momma!!!!
Hope you all have a happy new year!
This week's scripture to "Ponderize":
3 Nephi 18:24
Therefore, hold up your light that it may shine unto the world. Behold I am the light which ye shall hold up—that which ye have seen me do. Behold ye see that I have prayed unto the Father, and ye all have witnessed.
(Thank you Brenda Johnson (Elder Johnson's mom) for sending me the pictures from their paintball activity)
