August 29th 2011

That was a pretty cool picture of the kids with Dad's mission president. It’s too bad about the football team. Braden’s shoulder pads are huge ha but he looks good. Did he pick 82 for a reason or did they just give it to him? Porter is getting pretty tall too man it’s crazy. Oh well this week was good. This week we saw a lot of people and stuff. We added a few new investigators. Since Elder Manukailea is going home next transfer we are working real hard. He wants to baptize 8 people in one month so we won't rest till that happens. President Lewis asked me what I thought I needed to become a better missionary and I told him that I just need to work harder and give everything to the Lord and that is why he put me with Elder Manu, cuz I sure am learning that right now. We had a great week. This week I went on an exchange with Elder Saumanutafa. He is from Samoa and is learning English. We had a lot of fun and worked real hard. He was beat by the end of the day ha. This weekend we had an awesome baptism for Marci Maxey, a 14 year old girl who has been coming to church since 6th grade and has a super strong testimony. There were more people at her baptism then at any one I have had. President Lewis came and he spoke a little and it was good. Afterwards they had the leadership session of stake conference and President Lewis was speaking there as well and asked me and Elder Manukailea to help him out and do a couple of role plays for everybody. They went pretty good. Our stake president gave an amazing talk on Justification and Sanctification. It was great. I printed off Elder Christoffersons talk on the same subject that night and it was amazing as well. You should check it out. Then yesterday we had stake conference as well. It was really good. They had 4 people speak who had their mission calls, it was nice. The two stake patriarchs spoke and did a really good job. One just got called. He was the old high councilor over missionary work and we worked with him a lot so that was cool that he got the calling. The stake we are in is pretty cool. They have 40 missionaries out which is a lot for Sacramento. He gave a talk on missionary work and then going to the temple more frequently. This Wednesday is the 5th anniversary of the Sacramento temple dedication so they are pretty excited about that. Elder Manukailea got sick last night so today he has stayed in with another missionary. He will be better by tonight. I think he just got dehydrated. So that is our week in a nut shell. I hope everyone is having a good time in the 110+ heat! It’s nice here and only in the 90's. So yeah. Love ya

Elder Tyler Pete Arnett
