March 6, 2017

Im on. got 1hour

Awesome.  I will text mom and let her know.
How is everything?  I had the missionary from my old mission, Elder Pena, message me and ask how you were doing.  His son had surgery or something but is doing well.  He just got transferred to Zapala.  Anyway, he said his son is hoping to serve in an area with you.
Today is Football Season Ticket selection.  We are probably going to get the same area.

We held Brooklynn's baby blessing yesterday and everyone was there and of course were asking about you.  Grandma gave the thought but really you did as she shared what you wrote about family and its importance.

yeah Elder Pena was out for a while haha.  He is better now.  His lung ruptured.  He wwas in my zone.  But now he is in zapala.  Im so jealous about the football!  Have fun.  How many tickets are you buying?  Still 4?
That is awesome that brooklyn got blessed!  That is cool with grandma, im glad i could give her some inspiration.

Yea, we are going to get 4 again, we just discussed it this morning and mom said she would go with us.
The tickets went up in price again.  Last year they were $750 and this year they are $900.  We get a 20% discount putting them at $720.  There are 13 games this year - is that worth 13 games? $55 bucks a game per person?

that is what she says every year. haha.
$55 is a lot. but those were so much fun.  It obviously doesnt affect me, but if i was home i would want to go.  Haha i hope to keep going when i get home

Gonzaga was the number one team in the nation.  29 and 0, undefeated.  BYU beat them last weekend and they dropped to number 4 in the nation.  We got 3rd seed in our West Coast Conference tournament.  We beat Loyala Maramount Saturday and take on St. Mary's tonight.  We have lost both times to St. Mary's they are ranked about 20th in the nation.  If we beat them then we take on Gonzaga (if they beat Santa Clara tonight, which of course they will) for the WCC Championship.  If we win the Championship we get an automatic seed in the NCAA March Madness.  If we don't win we have to be invited, which might happen since we beat the #1 team, but it is iffy.

That is insane!!!  Lone Peak!!!  Haha let me know how it ends up!

Does this work?  It is 5 min long long so i didnt know if i could send it over email.
Are you saving my recordings?

It is 5 min and 25 seconds long and 14.9 megs.  I think 15 megs is the largest you can send so you are pushing it but it worked.
Yes, we are saving everything in a mission folder in our gmail so you will have all emails and all attachments.  I am also posting the email text, pictures, and voice recordings on your blog.

Cool!  I think i will send a recording and pics for the week instead of spending my time typing.  So much easier that way.  
what is the blog again?

spent $125 with the marriott.
Bread dough and scone recipe?  I want to make scones
No bake oatmeal cookie recipe?  Like those chocolate ones.
Granola bar recipe?  Brownie recipe?  And other recipes that you think i might like.

That charge came through as $8.16 US Dollar.
You need 6 ingredients to make bread dough which instead of baking can be used in hot oil and fried to make scones.  Warm Water, Yeast, and Sugar (or honey) put together to active and feed the yeast.  Flour, Salt, and Oil added to it and mixed.
The ratios are basically as follows but you have to add flour slowly until it becomes not sticky and manageable so the flour is not exact.
1 Tablespoon Yeast
1 Cup Water
1 Tablespoon Sugar
2 Tablespoons Oil
1 Teaspoon Salt
2-3 Cups Flour
After mixed let sit at least a half hour or until doubled.  Punch down and form loaf and bake at 375 for 25-30 minutes or stretch into scones and fry in hot oil.

Can you maybe convert those into mL?  Like how many mL is in a cup?  And how many tablespoons in a cup?

1 Cup is 240 ml
1 Tablespoon is 15 ml
1Teaspoon is 5 ml
There is 16 Tablespoons in a Cup or 15 ml X 16 = 240 ml

where is that?  Is that the pizza place we went to once?

No, it is Zabb Noodles.  An asian fusion type restaurant.  We got Pho, curried noodles, Pad Thai, etc.  It was pretty good.  Davey was nice and picked it because I had a Groupon there.

That is cool.  Well i got three minutes so see ya next week!

Going to try sending the majority of my week in a recording about 5 min or so.
I´ve really noticed that i use the Atonement more as a missionary than i did before.  Some people may be confused by that because we often think of only using the Atonement when we sin.  Here in the mission, i guess i have just come to realize that i need it more in my life.  I need it for the little things.  I need it for my struggles and hard times.  I need it constantly.
Also, lately, i have thought a lot about less actives in the church.  Here in the branch here, there are so many less actives.  Less actives are like fence sitters.  They wont pick a side.  They are sitting on the fence between the Lords side and Satans side.  The problem is that Satan owns that fence and those less actives are in peril.  They are being deprived spiritually.  I love the members here- actives and less actives alike.  But sometimes i get frustated with these less actives.  This has also strengthened my testimony of Home and Visiting teaching.  I always knew it was important to do that, but before coming here, i greatly misjudged the value and importance of home and visiting teaching. 

More pics.  Including that used tp bucket  :)
