Hey guys,

So this last sunday we went to a missionary farewell lunch and when we walk into the house this lady walk up to us and said she wants to take the lesson and she sat up a appointment with us and we went and talk to her and taught her lesson one(restoration) and she said she wants to get baptize. Then Yesterday this guy from the Cavery chappel stop me and I thought he just wanted to have talk but he ask me how we are saved and I said "We are saved by grace but only after we do everything that we can do like Repentance, Faith, Baptism and recieve the gift of the holy ghost" and then guy just start attacking me and saying that I am going to hell if I don't accpet that it is by grace alone that we are saved. I almost punch this guy in the face and my companion saw that I was about to throw a punch and He said we did to leave and we start to walk away and then the guy start to follow us in his car so we went and got in are car. ( my companion and I have a part time car and we have it from saturday morning to tuesday morning). Love you guys.

So nothing new has happen to me. Nothing really cool or spiritual either. On Wednesday night we My companion and I were walking threw a park because we did to get one more contract and we ran into this guy name Nate who just moved from Colardo. He seems like a good potential Investigator.

Editorial note by Mike:  Jason says he is doing great!  He has dropped about 6 inches off his waist size already.  The weather is nice, and he sounds happy.

So on Thrusday me and my companion were walking to park to go to the bathroom and we got to this light and we start to cross, for some reason me and my companion just stop for no reason. then within seconds of us stopping this truck which was speeding ran the red light and missed us by inches. The lord is watching out for his missionaries. Nothing will happen to his faithfull members unleast he wants it to happen. Sure you hear stories about good, faithfull members dying from cancer or by being hit by a car. but at the same time the lord need them back in heaven. The lord will protect us if we are living worthy of his care and protect. Sure there will be hard time and there will be good times all we have to do is live a worthy life and let the lord guide us in all that we do and say. Elder Elquist

Right now my companion and I are only teach two investigators name Jesus and Christa. we have taught them the Restoration and the plan of salvation. I have learned that the lord will bless me but not in the way I wanted him to. The first blessing that I have gotten is Having a good Trainer who will joke around with me but is still focus on doing the work. The next blessing is giving me comfort when I am home sick. He dose not make me miss My family and friends less but He he allows the Holy ghost to comfort me. The next blessing is having friends who are on a mission a knowing that they are going throw the same thing I am. I might not be able to teach people like the prophet and 12 apostle teach us but I am able to to bare testimony and have the holy ghost touch the peoples heart so they know the things I say are true. Another blessing is having such a awesome support system that are Family and Friends. Love you guys even you Braden

Hey Guys,

Right now I'm serving in the Carlsbad 4th ward. I am two miles away from the beach and it seems like no one wears clothes. I have had the cops called on me once and nothing happen because I was not breaking the law. I had people swear at me, My feet have really big blister on them, I walk about 10 miles every day up and down hills, The weather is really hot and humid. But I love being able to serve the lord. People might hate me here but I know the lord loves me and is blessing me. My companion and I are teaching a family name pligo, they are a Mexican family but they are understanding what we are teaching them. It is cool being able to see the spirit work on people that I am teaching. Love you guys
