This week has been a very good week,  did A lot of biking up hills. Taught Deloris about Sabbath and told her about Pero so hopefully she can quitting coffee. Taught Michelle about the power of hymns and then we gave her and encourage her to ask her mom to let her get baptize.

Elder Jason Elquist, February 17th, 2015

So this last week has been pretty eventful. 

My companion and I picked up a new investigator name Brittany who is dating a priest in the ward. The only way we can teach her is by doing Skype lessons, due to the fact that her stepmother doesn't want us in her house and she doesn't want to meet us somewhere because it sounds weird.

My area is no longer a part time car area, it is now a full time bike area and my legs hurt because there are so many hills. I usually can get to sleep real easy because by night I am just ready to go to bed.( My nights go like this: do daily planning, put on some music (usually some Christen Country music), shower, pray and then go to bed.

Also, last night I crashed on my bike.  I was going really fast down a hill and I thought I could make a turn and my bike slid out and it bent my front rim. It cost me 118 bucks to get a new tire.

This last week was a pretty good week.  We taught Delorise about Temples and Family history work and it was really cool to see her face light up when she found out that she could be married to her husband forever even through he is dead and then she showed us all the family history work that she has done and I have never seen so much family work.  It took up two binders and I could make a fist and both binders were still bigger than my fist, but hey what else do you do when you're 86. Then we taught Michelle about Standing in holy places and then after the lesson with Michelle she asked us question about the FLDS and excommunication which was really weird but yeah it was just really weird.  Also from the Salt and Ice challege I have 3 scars that are about the size of ice cubes. hehe

-- Love, Elder Elquist (Jason)
