25 February 2013

Dear mom,

i have not seen any snow. the only thing i have seen is lots of rain. it rained so bad Saturday night we almost couldn't see the road driving back home. its been about a week since our house turned into a Popsicle. we haven't had any more frozen pipes. they unfroze when the sun came up.

its pretty cool to see that 58 new missions are opening up. i know that at least one of them is reopening. look for the Georgia Maken mission. It was dissolved about two years ago and the Florida Jacksonville Mission got some of the area from that mission. The top half of the FJM use to be part of that mission. the Georgia mission is suppose to open back up in July. and the FJM will lose what originally belonged to Georgia Maken. Any missionaries serving in those areas when the change occurs will likely change missions. that will also happen at the same time president and sister Barry go home. our new Mission president has been called and he will arrive in July as well.

zone conference was this last Thursday. Elder Albertson and I had to drive down there and back just to have our car inspected. i still don't know the results of that that of course assuming that i will ever find out. i also saw some of the members that i knew in Williston. they has driven the missionaries up to zone conference. so i got to say hello to them and find out whats going on down there.

we don't have a whole lot going on up here in Branford right now. we are preparing one young man for baptism just as soon as he can stop drinking sweet tea (which is apparently all the rage down here in the south). I've found more people struggle with tea than coffee out here. Believe it or not the lord knew what he was saying when he said no tea.

i hope dad has fun flying with all of his students down in saint George, and it sounds like Alex has just about everything she will need for when brightyn comes. give champ a hug for me. love and miss you all.

Elder Ogilvie
