Subject: I'll call this the Penultimate Email

Giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;
And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;
And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to kindness charity.
2 Peter 1:5-7

Dear family,

This week wasn't bad. We weren't able to meet with Tina, she's had a lot going on lately. She told us that child protective services were at her place, so we are wondering if they took one (or more) of her kids...yeah she's had a lot of crazy things happen
lately. It's sad. She wasn't able to make it to church, either. We hope she's OK.

We also went on exchanges this week. It was my last one! So that was pretty crazy. I went with my previous companion, Elder Schone. It was good to be with him and catch up on things.

On Wednesday we had our exit interviews with President Cleveland (he does them early cause there's so many of us). We had a pretty good conversation. We mostly talked about career plans and stuff. Right before we head home next week he will talk to us
more about dating and a few other things. It will be interesting, that's for sure.

Well, that's about all I have for this week. I can't believe I only have one more full week. It's pretty crazy. If anyone wants to stay in contact, please reach out so we can exchange info. My email next week is probably going to be pretty short.

I just want each one of you to know that I know that this church is true. I've seen too many amazing miracles to not know. God loves each one of His children so much. His whole purpose--His work and His glory--is to enable each of us to enjoy all His blessings.
I'm so grateful for the opportunity I've had to be an instrument in His hands and to help bring His children back to Him. It's been quite the experience, and I wouldn't trade it for anything.

I hope everyone has a good week! I love you all, and I'll see you soon!


Elder Jones
