hey all! Things are going great and the best part is that summer is here! it was only late by about 2 months. the sun is out, the temperature is up, and i finally have a decent tan. You guys would probably be amazed at the darkness of my skin. We are so much closer to a big ball of flaming fire here in denver. kinda scary actually.

Well, this week we got a referral from church headquarters for a guy named Robin Mitchell. He talked with the missionaries about 20 years ago and even went to church for about 6 months. unfortunately however, one of the missionaries said something really dumb and he asked them not to come back. We have high hopes for him though. Robin has a wife and 2 grandkids living with him. They also sat in and talked with us. One thing about Robin i like is that he has a severe speech impediment. He stutters pretty bad about every 3 words or so. However, he is really open about it and even jokes about it. its great to see other people take their difficulties and make them into a plus.

well, i hope all is well for you, but as usual i am short on time. i love yall!
