#98-My Last Skype-Mother's Day

We went bowling today so our zone leaders wanted everyone to write a bit before we went, so that is why I emailed earlier than usual so that I could at least send you some pictures... so, I only have like a half hour left!

I really liked talking to everyone yesterday!!  Can't believe that was my last time Skyping!  5 weeks and everything will be in person!!!  That's weird, huh!  hahaha  Do you happen to have the picture that we took as a family yesterday?  I would like to have that one as well as the others.  

This week's scripture to "Ponderize" is:
Matthew 25:40
And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

Love your missionary,
Elder Fowler

(Some highlights from our time Skyping):

We learned that Preston, Elder Johnson, and Elder Harrison all got permission from the mission President to attend the Priesthood ordination for Nain who was baptized back in February. This was a very special occasion for all of them. Plus, they were able to all see each other again which I'm sure was fun.

Sometimes we had a hard time understanding him because of his accent.  He said his thoughts are in Spanish and he would have to then switch to English.  He's worried about speaking in church when he returns because he has a harder time talking about the gospel in English, than in Spanish.  

(The last Skype home for Elder Fowler.  He was able to see
his 21 ½ month old nephew Krew, and his new little
niece Baylor, who is 2 months old.)
(I like to think that the light that is by Elder Fowler
is just the glow of the spirit that is radiating from him.)

Met a less active member who then helped us learn to make some bread.
