Letter to Grandma Dew : Elder Bowles 1-10-12

Hi grandma
Yes it is a great way to start off the year.  Whoo Hoo, hopefully that will make the Tongan ward happy about missionary work.  I know it's Tuesday Yesterday morning we went to the 5:30 session at the Los Angeles temple.   It was really nice.  After the session we got to talk to the temple president in a room in the temple.  He talked about some good stuff.  Sorry I can't tell you because it is going to be outside of the temple.  We got to meet our recent convert Maria.  She is doing awesome and is having a wonderful time learning about the gospel.  Now the focus on her is getting her to go to the temple in one year!  So as we are teaching her about the temple we always tie it to the lessons we are teaching, it could be the restoration, plan of salvation and the gospel of Jesus Christ.  So it is going really good.  And the other recent convert is Fred.  He feels really good now.  They both definitely feel a difference before they received the Holy Ghost and after receiving the Holy Ghost.  Now as the area goes we are finding new investigators.  We are back to square one.  So we are going by potentials, formers and back to knocking on doors.  Well I will try and find that park.  Victory park.  I have never heard of it.  I will look it up on my map.   Well it was a really good week.  We taught a few lessons and our recent converts are staying strong and it is so cool.  Did BYU win their basketball games?  Who is on the team now?  Anything going on in Utah?  My companion hates Utah.  Thanks grandma I will go find more investigators. 
Love Elder Bowles
