Hey family πŸ™‚

So this week has been very challenging. I never told you before but I have been really having a hard time the last few weeks. No matter how hard I work and no matter how well Elder Scoffield and I plan, it seems as if I can’t change certain things. I do not wish to go into it but I figured I’d at least let you know I’m human… haha

So dad I was up in Sonora this weekend and I saw like 20 deer!!! I kept telling Elder Scoffield with a laugh… “I wonder if I’m seeing more deer right now than my dad!!!” hahaha πŸ™‚ I knew you were scouting and I did the same as we drove and almost hit a few while driving haha it was crazy but so much fun πŸ™‚ I got a few pictures and if I can I’ll send my SD card today πŸ™‚ I doubt I’ll have time though haha I will asap πŸ™‚ We went scouting together this weekend though πŸ™‚ I totally felt you in the car with me driving with the cool breeze with the windows down πŸ™‚ I love you dad πŸ™‚

Hey momma πŸ™‚ Yes I still have the suitcases πŸ™‚ haha I LOVE them and told you that throwing them away like you wanted to like 9 years ago was a bad idea πŸ˜‰ haha they are under my bed I think behind EVERYTHING haha all my camping and chairs and suitcases and others things are under there lol please don’t break any of the speakers too πŸ™‚ I am glad you are having so much fun with Whitni πŸ™‚ Thank you for being so amazing and for the example YOU are to me πŸ™‚ I love you πŸ™‚

Britt haha what a mess of life huh? I love it πŸ™‚ Tell the kiddos high for me please! I am glad to still hear that you are alive πŸ™‚ lol You should call President Gelwix or the mission office to see if you can come down for lunch or dinner sometime πŸ™‚ I know it has been allowed in the past so yeah you should try πŸ™‚ haha Love ya!

Cameron, you’re a dork… Hahaha you TOTALLY would do that after…well the activity you stated you were doing lol I love you though so much πŸ™‚ thank you for sharing your experience about prayer. I know as well that when we, with real intent to do as directed, pray to our Father in Heaven that He will answer our prayers and give us direction in all things!!! Including a little tiny spring πŸ™‚ haha I love you bud πŸ™‚

Ok so Oakdale story!! We were contacting a few referrals and less actives in Oakdale and before we left to go back to Salida we decided to take the long way around this road and as we turned the corner we saw about 5 or 6 undercover police cars! It was totally NARC if that’s how you spell it! They all had their guns drawn on this beater car and one guy had an AR-15 and they were yelling so loud!!! It was really freaky!!! I got pictures though πŸ™‚ haha Whitni I was totally thinking about you and I and going to see things that have to do with police and our curiosity! I was also thinking about how I’m glad you weren’t there at that one and how mad you’d be at me when I would tell you that I stayed to watch πŸ˜‰ πŸ™‚ hahaha It was crazy though! Anyways I will send pictures home to you guys and that’s in them too πŸ™‚

So that man Joe wasn’t home when we went to see him and we are going to try seeing him yet again very soon. JT was confirmed yesterday and it was such a strong feeling of the spirit πŸ™‚ He mentioned his want now to serve a mission someday!!! Oh my goodness πŸ™‚ I love it! Haha he is so great!!! We went to an Eagle Project up in Sonora which was great and we gave the young man a blessing afterwards too. I love this gospel and the priesthood along with its power!!! There is no other gift or blessing like it that we have in this life that give us anything in comparison to the love and blessing and eternity and power that come from this great priesthood and the gospel as it was restored in this dispensation! I love you all and I will talk to you soon enough! πŸ™‚

Remember the Nephites and the Lamanites as you go throughout your week. At which point in time and on which side do you stand in the actions you are taking and will take this week? Remember to serve those around you selflessly and to always be in a position to serve others willingly and invite them unto Christ.

I love you all muchas,

Elder Taylor
