Sounds like you guys had a good time at the reunion. Everyone is looking good from those pictures you sent me. Looks like everyone is growing up. Well this email will probably be pretty short because I don't have much to talk about. I can't really remember too well anything that happened this past week. Just another normal week of missionary work. Maybe I should just stop emailing you guys until I get home? How would you like that? 4 weeks without hearing from me. Haha. Anyways...so it seems like the weather here intensified this past week. Its been so hot lately. That's one of the things I wont miss about this place. When we go outside I start sweating before we get in the car. This past week we did some service for an older couple. We shoveled some dirt for them. Within probably 15 minutes my whole shirt was soaking wet. I'm pretty excited to get back to Arizona and not sweat so much. Has it been hot in Heber? Well this past week the Sister missionaries had 2 girls  like 11 and 10 get baptized. So I got to meet with them for a little bit a couple days before their baptism. They are neighbors of some members. They were going to have their neighbor baptize them but he was at girls camp with all the young women and they didn't know if he was going to be back in time. So the 2 girls wanted me to baptize them if he wasn't going to be back in time. I felt good that they were excited to find out I could baptize them. But the member ended up getting home from camp on time so he was able to baptize both of them. I didn't mind though. I would rather have their neighbor baptize them anyways because he is their fellowshipper. They were sweet girls though. I don't know if you remember my patriarchal blessing but it talks alot about stuff on my mission. Like being able to baptize someone. I think about that alot. It doesn't bother me too much but it is something I think about. I have talked to alot of people about it and I have even talked to President Wall about it in our interviews. I have received some pretty good insight about it though. Its no biggy though. When I get home I have so much stuff I want to talk to you guys about. Just like about missions or the church or just like life in general. Coming on a mission just makes you look at life in a whole different way. You just view things different. It's pretty cool. Anyways for the past few weeks we have been running alot. The member that takes us frisbee golfing every morning is training for a half marathon. He pretty much does everything for us. He likes us alot. But he takes us running with him and another member. We run 4 miles Monday and Wednesday. Then on Saturday is our big runs. We started out at 5 miles a few weeks but we go up a mile every Saturday so this past Saturday we ran 7 miles. This morning we ran 4 miles and this Saturday we will run 8 miles. We wake up at about 4 and go run. He usually takes us to a golf course that we run at. The other missionaries don't want to go alot of the times because its too early. But we go anyways. Haha. Hopefully this will get me in pretty good shape when I go home. Tell Jaden he better do some more running because I'll go running with him when I get home and we will see who is in better shape. The thing that's nice here is that its really really low elevation so breathing is really easy. In Heber my first time running I'll probably be running out of breath. Oh so I was wondering if you guys could put some money on my card. I think I'm going to start sending some stuff home in the next couple weeks. And I might want to buy a couple more souvenirs before I leave. So if you guys could do that sometime soon that would be great. And if any of you guys want anything else from here before i leave just let me know. Oh one more thing is mom i saw some papaya at walmart the other day and it made me really want a papaya drink!   Love ya
