Monday November 19, 2012: Elder Bowles

Dear Mom and Dad:
Well, this week no food experiences.  Last week was yuck!!!! I survived-- I ate baloot.  Yea I got called to be a district leader and taught at my first District Meeting this past Thursday.   It was good-- we talked about the Book of Mormon.   It was shaky at first but hopefully this week I will be a lot more comfortable.
I can't send any pictures on my camera.  I don't know why it won't let me.   Also can I get a new camera this week because the one I have always shuts off when it wants to and it is annoying.  I took it to a camera shop to see if they could help me.  They said they can fix the lens and everything but it will cost the same as buying a new camera so they said just by a new one.  They said I dropped it somehow and they showed me.  So I just want to ask If I can get a new camera that can works properly. 
This week we taught a person who is coming back to church.  We are teaching him out of Preach my Gospel and are answering any questions he has.  He wants to serve a mission so we are helping him be prepared to serve and he can be a missionary right now in his home.   We have been teaching him and his mom who is not a member of the church has been asking her son more questions about the church and he answers them.   If he doesn't have an answer then he asks us.  So this week we taught him at his house and his mom said, "Do you mind if I join?"   She was asking questions about the church and about her son serving a mission.  She wants him to serve a mission because she knows she will receive the blessings.  It was pretty cool that we got to teach her about the mission and the Book of Mormon.  She is very nice and is very very open right now.  We go one step at a time and can't wait.  We got 2 new investigators, taught a couple lessons and it was a good week.  
Since I can't send the pictures I am going to cvs and print some and you should receive them Friday at the latest so Love ya lots.
Love Elder Bowles
