Alma 7:13 (My Mission Scripture)
"Now the Spirit knoweth all things; nevertheless the Son of God suffereth according to the flesh that he might take upon him the sins of his people, that he might blot out their transgressions according to the power of his deliverance; and now behold, this is the testimony which is in me." -Alma 7:13

I am so glad to be back in the Bluegrass State in the nation of Blue & White. Leaving my friends in Rexburg, Idaho at BYU-Idaho was one of the hardest things to do. I know that I am suppose to be in Kentucky with the "mormon" family, my family before I leave on my mission on April 18th. I know that leaving Rexburg when I did was what I was suppose to be doing but it def. wasn't easy to leave all those amazing wonderful people but watching the Kentucky Basketball in Kentucky is fantastic! Ale-8 is as good as it always as been and the Family... yeah we don't have it all but together we have EVERYTHING we could possibly need. Christian is still on his mission, Jonathan and I are preparing. Lauren is married. WOOHOO!!!! Michael is graduating soon and going to UNLV! Kathryn and Elizabeth are having fun being little and it is so good to be back and in the mix of all the chaos again! Its crazy but its good to be normal, as normal as anyone can be.
I have a month before I report to the MTC (Missionary Training Center) in Provo, Utah on April 18th but I am enjoying my time in doing nothing and spending time with those I love and care about. It has been an amazing experience in preparing to get onto this mission to Roseville, California. It will not be easy, it will not be joyful at all times, I am probably going to hate my comp. at some times but I know that it will at be worth it and the Lord will help me through the struggles of a mission and dealing with people who I need to find who the Lord has prepared. I hope that many of you will be willing to write and keep in contact, that would be amazing and much appreciated!
Thank you y'all for all the support!

In the Roseville, California; English-speaking Mission. I report to the MTC on April 18, 2012. I just went through the temple for the first time last week. I took a flight to Lexington. It took 7 1/2 hours to actually get there but I went through the Lousiville, Kentucky temple on Feb. 4, 2012.
