I'm still alive.
It's still hot.
Tulare, California is still a super cool place to be a missionary.
It's a really cool place to be a missionary, because it also happens to be the place that Daniel lives.
We met Daniel last week and we shared the message of the restoration with him and after the lesson he just said..."Thanks for coming, I really appreciated it." Which I realize that is not that many words but it wasn't the words but the incredible amount of sincerity behind them that made Sister Burnside and I recognize that there was something real special about Daniel. We taught him again this week and he told us that the very morning we were going to come over he was wondering what his purpose in life was. The Book of Mormon had the answers-as it always does...and Daniel committed to be baptized this month. He is such a cute dad- all he talks about is his kids. We are super excited about him.

KEEP PRAYING FOR DANIEL.
Read your scriptures.
and keep me in mind when you eat cheese because Tulare is the dairy capitol of the u.s.a.
love you all!
