#69: Halloween Package

Good to hear from you.  This week I'm emailing a little later because Elder Johnson had an interview with President today, so that kinda pushed our emailing time back. haha  Sorry to hear about the frustrations this week (our other son was in an accident and our car might be totaled, which leaves us with only 1 car)  I just read Brecken's email....YIKES!  That's super crazy to hear what happened with Brecken on Saturday, luckily, no one got hurt!  How are you guys gonna do the whole ride stuff with work and school and shopping?

My week was really good!  We started teaching a man named Naín.  He's really awesome.  He's reading the Book of Mormon and is already in 2 Nephi and he loves church and the way he feels in church!  He's is one of my all time favorite investigators.  I really love him.  Super awesome!!  This cycle we are hoping to have him baptized so that will be great.  I haven't had a baptism since I lived in Guerrero; almost 6 months ago, so I'm excited!! :)

I live with Elder Johnson and my zone leaders: Elder Harrison and Elder Chan. We have a really sweet house, with really cool elders.
Love Your missionary,
 Elder Fowler

I got a Halloween package from your friends (Jaymie, Jenna, Kelly and Melody-they are so sweet to send him something)  Please share this message with them:

Message for the girls!
Thank you girls soooo much!!!  :)  I got the package from you girls this last week.  I wanted to let you all know that that I'm so grateful for you thinking about me! :)  I think the biggest thing that I loved the most was the Double stuffed OREOs!!  I loved the letter as well! :)  When I read everyone's name, I loved that the most!:)  Seeing all the kiddos names and remembering each one of them! :) What a great experience! :)  I want you to know that you all are in my prayers everyday! :)
I love you all so much,
Elder Fowler

This week's scripture is:
Ether 12:6

And now, I, Moroni, would speak somewhat concerning these things; I would show unto the world that faith is things which are hoped for and not seen; wherefore, dispute not because ye see not, for ye receive no witness until after the trial of your faith.

(His sister Brooke emailed him this week with news of the gender of her and her husband's second baby-we knew there was a possibility that Preston could come home to meet not one, but two nephews or nieces.  Here's Preston's response to her sending him this picture with her son Krew eating an ice cream cone that is PINK....Meaning IT'S A GIRL!!!)

(Preston's response to his sister's news:)
Wow!!!  Brooke!!!  Felicidades!!!!!! I'm super excited for you and Dylan!!! I love the way that you announced what you are having with Krew and the Ice Cream!!! :) Great idea!!  I just put that pic on one of my flash drives!! :)  I can't wait to hold both your kids in my arms for the first time!! :)  We will take a pic for sure!! :)

(With that PiINK ice cream....this means
