Hey there! So… what kept you so busy last pday that I never heard from you again? ( Where's the group letter? Pictures? Voice recordings?) I did get some fun extra stuff from other people this week. Two different people sent me pictures via text last night, who were those cute little laughing girls that you and elder Tucker were reading stories to? Cutest picture ever. Also I thanked sis Waite for taking care of you on Christmas eve, and quoted part of your letter where you were going on about eating a really good cake. (Hers I assumed.)
How are things? How’s your knee? How’s your cough? Feeling any better? How are your investigators? Teaching anyone promising? Been to Greybull lately?
And no we haven't been to Greybull in a little bit, however we are planning on having a zone prep day there next Monday!
I love you mom! Have a great day!

It also helps that this last week, Talena’s daughter Brooke has been, she just started reading the Children’s Book of Mormon like crazy. She’s 9. LOVES it. I mean, in the ride to Cody which is only a half an hour, read up to like chapter 12 in it, which is I think King Benjamin. I’m like “Holy Crap! That’s up to the book of Mosiah!” So, her daughter’s been reading and is like “Mom! I want to get baptized! When are we going to get baptized?” And she wants to get baptized super bad. The last few times that we’ve been to their house, the spirit’s been really strong and Talena’s loving the church more and more and more and feels the spirit and knows it’s true. Just needs to get over that last final doubt. Satan’s really got a good hold on her. At least fear-wise. She’s just afraid that she’s not worthy, that she’s not ready. We’ll get her there. Bless her heart. Love meeting with them.
Oh! My jerk of a companion just came downstairs. (grunts, groans, random guy noises) Oh man! He’s been really abusive to me! Get me out of here! He just taught me how to play Black Jack the other day. (Elder Tucker mutters something about feeling bad if this is to his parents…) Or, he taught me how to play 21 the other day. How’s that? (Elder Tucker – “We’re being responsible! I was teaching him his numbers.” ) I’m leaning better, I can count to 21 now. (Elder Tucker- “He says since he’s been out on a mission his multiplication and his math has really been struggling”) So I’m getting better. We’re getting there. We’re hoping to move up to division next week. Laughs.

PS- Hey, so I know I said I’d stop, but I just had like a 6th or 7th bite of cake. Still totally worth it, not feeling guilty. Show’s it’s a pretty dang good cake. Last thing before I go, you know what’s like the most pleasurable thing to do right after eating cake? You hear that? That’s right. Half a glass of milk!

(Elder Tucker points out a Nerd candy on the ground) I’ve come to the conclusion that my companion thinks it’s funny that I think it was a Nerd that broke the screen glass (on his ipad – that he dropped while skyping with us on Christmas). Because just looking at the case, there is no way that just landing straight on it’s face, the glass would have shattered, except that something were to stick up and hit it, and there were some nerds on the ground. My companion is raising his hand. “I have the Elder Berrett Theory” What’s the Elder Berrett Theory? “That you will manage to find a way.” I manage to find a way. That is the Elder Berrett Theory.
My companion is imitating me. Update on Almond Roca, on like the treat scale, I’d probably give it like a 6 or 7 on a scale of 1-10.
So I recently discovered poppy seed dressing for salads. Like if you’re going to have a salad, poppy seed is the way to go. Ohhh, that’s how you know God loves you. That and ice-cream.
Oh, my goodness, let me tell you, I have discovered one amazing joy on my mission, and it is a washing machine, no washing machines are great too, but it is dishwashers. Holy Cow. Those save lives. I am convinced that many marriages and many lives have been saved because of dishwashers. I sure do know that many companionships have. Like, oh my goodness, I’ve never had a dishwasher before on my mission, and this thing it’s just… it’s amazing. We don’t even buy the soap or the pods for it, the member here just has them. If you go on a mission, IF you live at a members house, it’s gonna be like the best place you ever live in, honestly. Members are just so wonderful.
Oh! That’s right! I bought Wheat Thins the other day. I splurged. (singing what I think is a made up song) ♪♫Wheat Thins, the only wheat that will make you thin♪♫
Love you everyone, hope you have a wonderful day! Bye!
