These last couple of weeks have been a bit surreal and unfortunately writing emails was not high on the list of priorities for Elder Scott Donner.  This last communication seemed to be an impromptu question and answer session...

Mom - I'm sure there is a very logical explanation as to why you did not email us yesterday, but I sure wish there was a way for you to let us know why.  My mind goes into a million different directions when we don't get an email from you.

Scott - I'm writing today because yesterday I didn't have time because I was visiting some converts.

Mom - Whew...I am so relieved!

Scott - Breath mommy... breath :)

Mom - Lol...I'm trying...I think I've inherited your

Scott - Just have one of the girls punch you in the face.  It's worked miracles for me jaja!

Mom - LOL...I think I'll pass on that one.

Scott - I only have one layover.  It's in Dallas.  (It will be a 5 hour layover)

Mom - That is a long layover.  Are any other Elders going to be waiting with you?

Scott - Everyone else will be in Dallas with me but they only have 1 hour layovers.

Mom - When do you go to the mission home this week?

Scott - I go this Sunday at 5.

Mom - can always call us if you would like...we still have money left on that calling card.

Scott - I will probably call you guys, don't worry.

This is the last email from Elder Scott Donner.

It's Hard To Know...

I am just going to answer your questions because it is way to hard for me to focus to write a huge letter for the blog.

Investigators are awesome.  My last weekend it looks like I will be baptizing 5 at the least, maybe more.

I am just keeping busy working and trying not to slow down to end strong.

I would like Hawaiian haystacks when I get home.  I don’t know why.  Probably because I don’t remember anything else from the food there.

Brownies or anything chocolate would be awesome.  Brownies are not well-known here.

Sorry Mom.  I don’t know what else to write.  It’s hard to know now that the time is so close.

Getting Stuff Done

Hey dur!

Well this week was just another week that went by way too fast. We busted our butts to get stuff done.

Its looking like right now that we will be able to get 6 baptisms. We have a family of four we are teaching and also a mom and her daughter. They are super solid people! Anyways I am not very sure what to write anymore. The video is of the sister missionaries teaching us how to make home-made flour tortillas.

I will let you know about baptisms when I have them. These last weeks are just very weird for me.
