yeah we were planning on more baptisms on the 27th but they werent progressing so we werent able to have it. we havent been able to meet with them either so we dont have another baptismal date set with them either.
yeah i like the area a lot but i would really like to have more areas by now. just about everyone i came out with is in their 5-7th area and im still in my 3rd and this transfer is 7 weeks so it will be just before my 16 month mark, if i get transferred.
so hopefully soon we will be able to go back to the temple! with our recent convert who just got the priesthood we will hopefully be going to the temple again soon. were now in the st. louis temple district so hopefully we get to go! i would love to see st. louis. and if i dont get to go to the st. louis temple at this time, next February i need to come back out here for their sealing. he says next february he plans on getting sealed and i told him im coming out for it. so hopefully i can make it back out here then.
i need to get running now. love you!

Hello Elder Olsen!!
How are you ? Did mentioned before that you might have more baptisms on the 27th. Did that happen? I thought maybe you might have been transferred but I think it is good that you weren't. How do you feel about it? It seems to me that you seem to enjoy where you are now. My only thing is that I would really like to be able to see a picture of you again!!
Today is Aunt Merna's birthday and I told her that I would be writing to you today and she said to tell you hello and that she loves you. She had a nice birthday. She went to her grand daughter's house and had a party.
We celebrated Hilary's birthday today because her and Robert are having a party tomorrow night. She is taking the day off to celebrate. She should because she only gets a birthday once every four years. I made her a birthday cake in a cake pan shaped like a book and wrote it's great to be eight on it. I will try to send you a picture. Hilary wanted Pad Thai for dinner. I hope she liked it. I had never had it before so I don't even know if it tasted like it was supposed or not. It really wasn't my favorite thing that I have ever eaten.
Jeremy set up my new phone for me. I tried to do it myself and none of my contacts transferred so he fixed it for me. It is nice of him to do that for me and I really appreciate it.
The academy awards are on and I haven't seen very many of the movies that are nominated. I guess that isn't all that surprising because I don't really see that many movies anyway.
I will keep this letter short and mail you a letter now that I know where you will be.
Pray always, read your scriptures and be obedient.
I will love you forever
I tried to figure out how to send you pictures but I can't figure it out yet. I asked Hilary to send you some.
