Okay.... running a bit behind with Tyler and Stephen"s blogs sorry been a bad back week. Enough about me.
Elder Stephen Larson had his birthday June 1, he is now 23 oh my where does the time go?
As always he is concerned about all of us here what a great man he is and as always I tell him we are good even if sometimes we aren't but he doesn't need to worry about all our minor aches and pains now does he?
He had a nice dinner and dessert for his actual birthday on Sunday but then Janel (his mom for those that don't know her name) sent some money to a sister that lives in Nebraska and had her take him to lunch on Monday which I am sure was a great surprise for him and we are looking forward to hear about that experience from him this week. We sent him a great huge package to help him celebrate that he had a ton of fun with and his companion and him were able to share some treats and enjoy them.
Stephen has been able to do some family history work while he has been out in the field and is growing a huge love of it. He shares a lot of fun names and experiences with us and has suggested that Ashlee and I go to this is the place to learn and enjoy it. He and Ashlee have a shared love of family history so they are sharing stories of what they each are finding and that is an amazing bond that they are sharing. I love it.
He was also able to speak in sacrament meeting on the Sunday before last. He said he didn't cry and that it was a wonderful experience.
He is working really hard and him and his companion get along great. His companion is a go getter which is great to help keep Stephen from getting to homesick.
His mission President is in the ward he is now serving, he thought that was fun.
Stephen is working on getting letters out so if there is anything different in the letter I will update you all.
