How is everyone doing today! We just got back from hiking on this mountain named Cyprus mountain, it's the mountain where they had the snowboarding events in the Vancouver 2010 winter Olympics. We went hiking right next to the ski runs, oh man it was nice! Cody would have been going crazy and saying "Sonny boy I wanna go snowboarding!" It was really nice. The snow was fresh powder which I honestly wasn't expecting because of how humid it gets here. Seeing the mountains helped me to make my decision that we are going to come back after my mission and go skiing/snowboarding here together.

This week has been awesome for the work here in Burnaby. We're so busy it's great, we received a referral from our bishop this week on Sunday, so we went a paid a visit to the family who he referred us to and they are PREPARED! We sat down and started to talk about what our purpose is as missionaries and how our message helps people come closer to Jesus Christ. The couple told us that they use to live in Guatemala, and they arrived in B.C. a little under 4 months ago. The wife's best friend was a member of the church there and because of that they have had much exposure to what we believe and they were impressed with it. They said that they are thinking about starting a family soon and they want to be involved with a church to give their children a strong foundation. They said that they feel that this is the right church for them and their future family they just feel they need to pray and ask God if this is what he wants for them. I was so happy because they were so opened and so willing to learn, it really makes you happy when you find someone who is genuinely interested in learning about the Gospel. I know that the Gospel does give us that sure foundation to build our lives upon and those who put their trust in Heavenly Father are blessed. So that's two new investigators this week and we've been finding 2 new consistently which is the best I've ever done on my mission. I know that Heavenly Father is leading us here. If the work continues to progress the way it has for the past
few weeks they might need to send in another set of Elders to help us keep up with everything that is going on here.

The scones that we made were delicious, but your right they don't even come close to being as good as mom's are. Those jams are amazing though! Harry and David's is the best, I got Elder Henderson addicted to Mose Munch and he is even more addicted to Arrowhead Sauce! He tries it with everything and he says that the sauce goes good with everything it doesn't matter what it is, the sauce makes it better. So we got people in B.C. and Utah who are interested in it now!

I love you!
