The Mish‏

Well, this week went well, we had a super Spiritual Baptismal Service. There´s a lady who 2 years ago

Tatiana and her family at her baptism 
talked to the missionaries, and went to a general conference, but then stopped going. We found her teaching record, the missionaries had left her for that very reason, so we decided to visit her. We actually visited her about 2 months ago, but it was hard to teach her because there was never a man in her house. But finally we started being able to teach her consistently. She told us that she had been waiting for the missionaries to come back for 2 years, waiting for them to invite her to come back. We taught her and she was baptized in 3 weeks. Her daughters are super shy so we´re working on them as well, and her ex-boyfriend was cool, but has a lot of problems, but we´re still working with him too. The truth is that I´ve learned a little bit more about the Lord´s way of working, about the parable of the sower. We´re here planting seeds, with our friends, our neighbors, and in our case with tons of people on the street. The seeds grow, some are harvest quickly, others have to wait, but in the Lord´s plan He prepares the hearts of His children. I love being a missionary and just being able to plant seeds and try and harvest them. I don´t know how many of the people I talk to will eventually be baptized, it would be interesting to know, but I do know that the Lord´s work will go on and He gives us the chance to enjoy just a small needle points worth of all of it. And it´s the best feeling that there is.



Love, 
Elder Lohberg


**from emailing back and forth this week:
Aaron: you have no idea how hard I tried to not stick my tongue out in those photos.


Mom: HAHAHAHA!! Well good job!! Cause they are great!! I LOVE the one of you and Elder Escarcega and one other elder (can't read his name tag) - it's the three of you - and it's just a GREAT shot!! YOU look so happy!!!!
How was your week?!
Is that the microwave you said you were going to pick up last Monday? haha!
Do you have a hot plate in your place or just a microwave? ok - so tell me about the crazy fruit picture - I've seen that fruit at the food bank in a can - it's so crazy looking!  What does it taste like?  
Mamon Chino
And - whose baptism is that? tell me about that! who is the family - are they part members then or?
You rode a bus to the temple? with all missionaries or were there members on there as well?  Was it a whole mission trip to the temple or only certain zones or?

Aaron: My week was good, we did end with very many baptisms in the zone.. actually we ended horribly, so we´ll see what happens. Let´s just say that our 2 baptisms were half the zones baptisms ;@. 
mamon chino seed

That was Tatiana, the rest of her family aren´t members yet.. She was an old investigator from like 2 years ago, she told the bishop that she´d been waiting 2 years for the missionaries to come back, they left her because she wasn´t going to church, so we started working really hard with her and on her 3rd week in church she got baptized, she has a ton of faith. 

microbus after the temple
We took a bus to the temple, and they had a Microbus to take us to the office afterwards, Apparently my package is in Customs, I can go get it.. you said it got their the 9th? they told me the 23.. so.. I went that Monday but it closed at 3:45 and I got to the office to go get it at 3:44.. but today we´re going to go.. I think they´re going to charge me like 12 bucks or more to pull it out if it got their the 9th, they charge 700 Colones every workday i didn't pick it up... with 5 days free.. WHat crap ha? It was all the mission but their were 4 sessions and we went by zone. We got the 2nd session. WE FINALLY GOT A MICROWAVE, FETCH. And we made gross pancakes in the microwave with vanilla and my comp put syrup and milk and ate it.. gross.. 
"new" microwave haha!

Mom: So who did the baptism then - what elder is that in white? is that the other set of elders in your ward?
OH!! I'm so sorry they are charging you for the package!! Take money out of the debit card then for sure to cover it - will you get to go to the Customs to get it? the longer it is there the more they will charge you then right?
Tatiana with Juan Picado who did the baptism

Aaron: Yeah, but you said it got their the 9th.. and they told me it was their the 23rd.. so it was at like 4mil or 8 bucks at that day.. but i couldn´t get it until today.. so i think like 6 mil or 12 bucks.. maybe a tiny bit more.. but we´ll see, I brought 20 bucks personal money with me to grab it.. we´re going today. After 5 days each Business day charges 700 colones. like $1.30 

Elder Escarcega's pancake with milk in the microwave
Mom: well - on my end it says it got to customs the 9th -to be sorted - so maybe it wasn't cleared from customs until the 23rd?  Maybe that's it!  Let's pray!! I'm just thankful it got there - I truly thought they wouldn't let it through - you will see why they are charging when you open it up :p Sorry!! But just take it out of our $$ for sure to cover it! :) Glad you will get it but sad to have to wait until next week to talk to you about it!!  Pick which tie you want to keep and give the other to Escarcega!!

Aaron: Oh.. also the other elders had a baptism of a youth.. so Elder Colindres baptized him and a member baptized ours, named Juan Picado.. he´s cool. Tatiana said she sent me a Facebook request and it got rejected.. could you accept dat please?=) We had a hotplate stove thing and then the microwave. 
Temple Trip September 23 2015


Mom: OH! she sent that to me I think and I didn't know who she was as it was random  and her page didn't say she was from Costa Rica!  I had just had another Facebook request from some other random person in Costa Rica and I was thinking - hmmm maybe I shouldn't just accept these people without figuring out WHY they are friending me! haha!! I will search her out - I haven't been on your page in a while - LIKE months! so I will get on there and friend all your requests

Aaron: Another person sent one too, named Jose i don't know his last name.. L something.. he´s an investigator and his girlfriend is less active but they went to church last week.. he´s funny and he sent one
YEH!! Así es pue =) that´s how it is.
Leonel and Jeaneth - one of my favorite families :)

Mom: if for some reason you go to pick up your box and they charge you more for the contents - (I guess depending on how CRAZY much more) just pay it on the debit card (if they will let you) hopefully they don't do that - but you've never had to go to customs to pick up a box before have you? didn't the mission always pick up the boxes before? So - they might be charging you for the contents - if so - I'm sorry!! I won't do that to you again :/

Aaron : nope, well I don't know what happened with the first boxes u sent, never heard anything.. but the other no.. i just grab them from the office and yeah. Up to what limit should I pay or leave it?? What do you think

Mom: what does Pue mean? Last week you had it in your header for your email and when I tried to translate it in google translate it just left it as pue

Aaron: Pue is like a Nicaraguan accent for Pues, which is well.. but lots of Latino countries cut s´s off.. so it´s PUE haha

Elders Gubler, Escarcega, Colindres (don't know the other 2)
Mom: well the first ones just never got there - they were cheap (contents anyways) and just a trial run - so I wasn't worried.  This box has a weird combo - so I think that is what triggered the hold at customs - hopefully they don't charge you a buttload to retrieve it - but it is what it is.  Just wish it wasn't a nightmare for you to get :(

Aaron: PIZZA

Mom: looks like Costco!! haha 

Aaron: Nahh it´s all good 
OKay, Gotta go mom!! I love you so much, tell dad I love him too. Have a good week. The sis´s too, and Spencer, love ´em all have a good week

Mom: LOVE you!! have a great week!! It will all work out!! Have faith! :) Until next week!! HUGS!!!! KISSES!!!!! LOVE!!!

Va Pue‏

This week I just want to talk a little bit about the importance of making and keeping covenants. One of the most common phrases you´ll hear in Costa Rica is ¨A church isn´t what saves you, Jesus isn´t going to come to save only a single church.¨ I suppose you could say that God won´t only exalt His church, but He is looking for His covenant making people. In the old testament and throughout all of the Bible and the Book of Mormon we learn about the covenants that God´s children have made with Him. One of the most well known covenants is the Abrahamic Covenant. Through the children of Abraham all of the families of the world would be blessed. Through the restoration of the gospel of Jesus Christ came also the restoration of the Abrahamic Covenant, in which we now as members of the Church of Jesus Christ, can be received under the Abrahamic Covenant and receive ALL of the blessings promised to the children of the old testament. I testify that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day saints is the only group of people who truly make covenants with Heavenly Father. We truly are the covenant people and the Lord will come for his Covenant People. This is just something I´ve been studying lately, and all the truth is in the scriptures, if we study them and confirm what we study with the Lord we will be able to know the path that takes us back to our Heavenly Father.

Love, 

Elder Lohberg. Bazinga. 

from typing back and forth:
Aaron: hi mom
FYI My comp´s name is Elder Escarcega, elder Colindres is our district leader but he´s cool haha, he wants me to visit guatemala. Yeah they´re pretty comfy (talking about his crocs).. they only cost me 5 dollars. haha. I´m fine, the week went well.. we had 42 lessons and we brought 4 people to church, all families or part families! we baptized last week and this week we have another baptism, the girlfriend of a family, she has 3 kids and her boyfriend... but they live in separate houses so she´s gunna get baptized.. apparently she was waiting 2 years for the missionaries to knock on her door again :O
The investigators are good, transfers are the 12th of october. this Wednesday is P'day we´re going to the temple i might buy scriptures in spanish to make a quad.. but also i might not because lazy. I heard that the scientists are saying there´s going to be a 3 day eclipse, is that true?

Mom: oops! Sorry i kept thinking Colindres didn't sound right!!  But I couldn't find anything else that told me your comp - I'm sure you have said it to me - but I couldn't remember :/ Tell him it's not that he's forgettable or anything - it's that I'm old :p
Wow - 42 lessons! That's a lot of lessons!! cool that you had 4 people to church - and families no less :) That's awesome!! AND another baptism this week?! I'm really proud of the work you are doing!!
I don't know why I thought transfers were the end of this month - I must have just gotten confused with what our area transfers are or something.
I'm excited that you get to go to the temple on Wednesday! Take pictures while you are there :)  
I haven't heard about a 3 day eclipse - unless it's the whole "end of the world thing" haha

Aaron: I´ll take pictures in the temple don't worry=) haha just kidding.. no the eclipse is a lie i think idk we usually teach 32-36 lessons a week

Mom: o I googled it - there is a lunar and a solar eclipse this month but 3 days? no not from anything I have seen - that would be weird and end of the world like :)
It sounds like though that things are picking up to a degree there - that you are seeing some progress in your area - which I'm happy for you to be able to see some of the fruits of your labors :)

Aaron: yeh it´s pretty cools. TYLER ALMOST LEAVES FOR HIS MISSION YEH? 4 WEEKS?

Mom: ya I think Tyler reports the 28th of October? I think that is correct.  He is flying out as he reports to the Mexico MTC.   

Aaron:  HOW ARE YOU GUYS. TELL ME MORE ABOUT HISTORY. KARA NO GOING MARRIAGE? she told me she wouldn't get married until i come home.. just get married already and MAKE A FAMILY. 

Mom: as far as the "roommates" thing goes - truly - I'm in no hurry right now to do anything with that - we have time!  AND - lots of people go to school and room with complete strangers - so that's not an issue either if you end up doing that.  It would be nice to know something about who you are rooming with but not necessary for you to succeed at school. I think the biggest thing is it would be nice to room with other RM's I think - and if they spoke spanish that might be cool so you could keep up your spanish as well.

Aaron: I guess we can do it, it´s the SAME VARA:)

Mom: haha - I don't think Kara will marry any time soon - she says she's not ready for marriage and she says he isn't ready either so we shall see :/ BUT this I know - she says she will NOT get married without you being there :)
more history? like? what?

Aaron: IDK how´s jessie and kara and you and dad??? and cleo and missy and like idk.. what are the walls made of in our house?? it´s not dry wall right? Also I want to restore a car

Mom: same vara? meaning same variation of spanish?  Either way - whatever you end up doing with roommates - you are not bound to that forever! You can always move - always switch apartments etc. 
One concern I had about where she was looking was it is south of campus (by where Jessie's old apartment was) and while that area isn't "bad" it's just far from the MTC/temple if you wanted to work at the MTC you would have to drive there.  But I guess that's not a huge deal breaker.  It might be nice to see where your classes would be (like building areas) so that we could judge better where you'd have to go for class, but again - not a huge deal breaker - we could always get a bike or something you could take besides having to walk to class.  BUT we have time :)

Aaron: a bike or a motorcycle VROOM VROOM suzuki motorcycles are cheap i think=D but also SUPER DANGEROUS=I
vara is like thing.. it´s a tico saying.. because Cosa means thing, but here they say Vara, Que es la vara? What´s the deal?

Mom: well Jess just got a job - she is working for a hospital there in Provo she will be the go between for patients getting surgeries done and the hospital - basically she will be telling the patient how much their insurance will cover of the procedure vs how much they will need to pay and then deal with that.  I told her she most likely wont have mad people but she will get criers when they figure out how poor they will be from the procedure :)
Kara is doing well - she is RS president again - so she taught yesterday at church.  She is wanting to focus RS on building the individual spirituality - which truly - THEY have to do - but I think she is wanting to show them how they can do it.  
Dad is a little stressed with work - well a lot stressed with work - but we are working on that.
Missy is a fat lard - but still cute! Still has breathing issues - but she has gotten tougher with Cleo - she actually will attack  her at times! guess she is just DONE with being bullied by cle :)  Dad made her a cat tent  -  I will see if I can find a picture to send you - the cats love it!
Cle fights with Dans cat nightly - you can hear the cats screaming at each other EVERY SINGLE NIGHT!

Aaron: you sent me the cat tent!!

Mom: What do you think of this picture?  I found it and absolutely LOVE It!! Makes me think of Christ reaching for Peter as he is sinking in the water from doubt - and how he reaches for each of us.
Thoughts? I am thinking of buying one for the house - it's not an LDS artist - actually the guy is Korean I think who created it - but I just love it!! 

Aaron: yeah i´ve seen it before, it´s cool

Mom: if your pday is Wednesday that's cool that you still got to email today!  I'm glad that you can still attend the temple even though it is out of the mission. still have a few minutes? I can never tell how much time you have to chat.
Do you have tons of paperwork stuff to do on your computer time? I think I mentioned that Spencer told his mom that he has to do his ZL's paper work each week during his computer time - that seemed odd to me

Aaron: Yeh, pretty dank. I do tons of ab work outs and my abs are flat and everything.. sometimes i wonder if maybe when my diet changes from rice and beans to our states diet i´ll pull out a 6 pack??? yeh like 5 or so. Paperwork stuff will be next week I believe

Mom: so does it take up your time to email then? how does that work?
How many of you go to the church to email on Monday? I know there are 2 computers there - but how many computers total and does the whole district go at the same time or?

Aaron: No, Wednesday p-day ends at 5:00 instead of a 6:00. their are 7 here.. our district is 6 and the other is 8 so they write somewhere else now. 

Mom: you're actually pretty lucky as Elder J has gained so much weight from the rice and beans - he is swollen up - his mom has had to mail him replacement shoes even cause his feet are swollen.
Our elders asked if you'd gained weight and dad's like yeah from all the rice and beans and I'm like um no actually he hasn't! haven't you looked at his pictures he's sent? haha

Aaron: Like i did at first, then i dropped it down.. and now I'm pretty much the same 
Love you mom, Have a good week, tell dad to have a good week too! Keep up being awesome parents=) I love you both so much, talk to you next week! 

Mom: LOVE YOU!! have a great week Aaron! So proud of you!! Truly happy for the successes you are seeing in the mission field!! Reap the harvest!! LOVE YOU!

Gotta Catch´em All‏

Been thinking a lot lately about Pokemon.. I don´t know why. In other news, this week one of our investigators got baptized named Harin, and another member moved into our area from El Salvador, he had a problem with the gangs there.. crazy business. This week I´ve been studying the talks of Thomas S. Monson and the Apostles.. I love listening to these talks, even in talks I´ve already read I receive so much revelation. I´ve got a huge craving to read the institute manuals and other church books right now haha, I love learning new things about the scriptures!!! It almost makes me wonder how ANYONE could go inactive in the church, really if you believe in God and read His word the scriptures, it´s super obvious that this is Christ´s Church. With so much evidence He still gives us a Spiritual confirmation to help our unbelief. I encourage you to make sure you´re actually STUDYING the scriptures everyday and praying everyday because our Heavenly Father will always guide us, I don't have any doubt of that! 

¨The simple secret is this: put your trust in God, and do your best, and leave the rest to Him¨

One of my favorite quotes, Joseph B Wirthlin
Have a good week! 

Love,

#GALALIGA 2-1 Me dicen

From emailing back and forth:
Aaron: I DIDNT FORGET! I WOKE UP SUNDAY AND SAID, TODAY IS MY MOMS BIRTHDAY TOMORROW I´M GOING TO TELL HER HAPPY BIRTHDAY=D HAPPPY BIRTHDAYYYYYYYY

Mom: Thank you!! I think this is a first for you (not to wish me happy birthday - but for you to remember ON MY birthday:) haha)
How was your week? I'm anxious to hear all about it!!

Aaron: It was decent. No one went to church, but we surprised baptized 
someone hahahaha. I think the bishop was a little mad about it.. FETCHING MISSIONARIES
Also Elder Colindres says happy birthday

Mom: surprise baptize? how did that work? haha - dunked them when they weren't lookin' haha :)

Aaron: Uhm.. so we had left a youth.. he told us he was 18 when we first found him.. like 2 months ago.. we brought him to church like 9 times, to 2 baptisms.. 2 activities.. and he said he didn't feel anything but that he did want to be baptized.. so then he told us.. oh yeah I´m 17 i turn 18 in 2 months.... so we fasted with him so his mom would give permission and nope.. and so it was like fetch.. then one day he told us he was going to go to the church in front of his moms house in another zone.. so we were like okay.. and we just passed the reference.. basically a free baptism haha.. but then my comp talked to his dad.. who lives in our area.. apparently he had been lying, he really has 18 years old almost 19 and he had fought with his step mom so his dad kicked him out.. so we stopped talking to him because my comp was super upset with him.. i still sent him messages every once and a while.. and then a week later we saw him a weekend but my comp didn't want to talk to him so we always just ignored him.. 3 weeks later.. he was still showing up and we went to visit his neighbor and he was like, Hey, i´m going to get baptized next week I think,  and we´re like that´s cool, and he´s like, what now you´re not going to talk to me? and my comp ignored him but I talked to him because he LOOKS AND TALKS just like C.. and then he told me that he wanted to go to church with us.. and i´m like.. where are you going to go to church are you going to start going there or keep going here? and he said he was going to go here so i´m like.. okay you should be baptized here then if you´re going to go to church here.. so we talked to the sister missionaries that´d we´d passed him off too and robbed him again, it was a Friday in the afternoon like 6:00, at 7 our district leader showed up lol and did the interview and then at 6:00 during a fetching Ward Activity that we didn't know about we baptized him.. so the bishop was like.. why wasn´t this better planned and everything and the ward mission leader who does like nothing took the blame.. he´s growin on me haha. but yeah! Baptism. 

Mom: You look so happy in the photos!  The sisters...not so much :) haha! 

Aaron: HAHA in one of the photos when i was putting my arm around elder gubler i brushed his face with my arm on accident haha it´s super funny!

Mom: haha - ya it made me chuckle - it looks like he's all "armpit! ugh!" but then the next shot is fine! haha - it's funny though :P
no word from customs yet on your box - my only worry is that what we sent might get held up there ;/ so we shall see.  we will just keep praying  for it to clear! :)

Aaron:okay, well I LOVE YOU MOM. HAVE A HAPPY HAPPY DAY AFTER YOUR BIRTHDAY!!!!! I love you and dad so much and hope you a happy week, also that kara and jessie make good choices always 

Mom:LOVE YOU TOO!! have a great week!!

Desmond the Moon Bear‏

Shout out to Kara with the subject heading idea. This week went pretty well, 4 investigators came to church, we had two a mom and her son (he´s 40 years old) who appear like GOLD super awesome.. and they were going to both come to church but her husband got sick.. he´s from Canada and is like 89 or something like that.. so she couldn´t come but her son did come. And then a member was able to bring half of a family.. the other half was sleeping and didn't want to get up. So we´re hoping that the son and his mom and then half the family can get baptized this month! The reason we´ll baptize only have the family is because the mom wants to be baptized but she doesn´t want to get married to her boyfriend because he´s crazy.. the good thing is that they don´t live together. Also!!! Well.. yesterday was stake conference but one of the inactive families we were working with has now showed up for the 6th time.. and i´m willing to say that they basically reactivated now=) They´re super cool and i´m super happy for them.. also they have 2 years of being baptized so we´re going to try and rob them and take them to the temple! God has a plan for each and everyone of us, he has the master plan to say it that way, his ways are not our ways and when we try and line our will up with his he blesses us and in the end we can understand the need and importance for decisions that we made and for things we suffered... for everything basically... God knows what he´s doing and he gives us the chance to participate. I heard in a general conference talk that we have notes that we can play in the Symphony of God´s plan, whether we play them or not the symphony will continue, but God hopes that we rise up and play our notes loudly and beautifully. 

With much love,

Elder Lohberg

Aaron: hello

Mom: HEY HEY HEY!! How has your week been?  I've got Kara & Jess here with me if you want to chat with either of them :)

Aaron: AWESOME. I´m going to put a video on.. of a rain storm we had last Monday!! !it´s long though.. so hang in there

Mom: Fun email this week - you sound like you're feeling better this week with your area.  Great about the less actives coming back - I think that is wonderful!  these people have once had the gospel - known the sweetness of it and now coming back can enjoy the blessings of the gospel and the temple  :)

Aaron: Yeh. We doin good here in the hood, my comp is crazy lol.. he does weird stuff, the other day in the house of the less actives he put on the father like baseball hat backwards, and he looked like a 5 year old kid lolol 

videoMom: Hahaha!! I am glad that you two are getting along - because it sucks when you don't for sure!!
Hey - Sent you a box before we left for UTAH :) I forgot to say in it - that I packed you 2 new ties - so pick one and give the other to your comp :)
The rest will be a surprise (as to what is in the box that is) 
I didn't send it priority express so this one will take about 2 - 3 weeks probably to get to you - I forgot to bring my tracking number so I can't see where the box is at this point - but my guess is it hasn't made it into country yet.  But just giving you a heads up - not sure if they tell you when you get a box or if you just need to know? how does that work? Do you get to travel into the office to get it or do you have to wait until you have a meeting to go pick it up?

Aaron: Why send me things expensive? I say no send things cost much but say wait come home no waste money. Just had meeting no go office for long time we see what happen i go and see and if there i take if no there no take

Mom: Well - I send as I please so :p
I will keep you posted then a to when to expect it - I'm guessing probably not for a couple weeks at least though.
So with this newly reactivated family - do they have any friends you can teach? They would have referrals I would think!! since they have been less active I would think they would have nonmember friends then that you could now teach as they are enjoying the gospel now again and will want to have their friends enjoy it too :
video
Aaron: The fathers brother lives with him.. but they´re hard to teach because they´re only home from 8-9 and he told us he didn't want anything after we had taught him like 10 times.. we´re going to keep trying.. see what happens, ...he could change.. but he´s also not married and his girlfriend lives in Nicaragua.. so if he goes back to Nicaragua he would break the law of chastity lol.. 
Why send when say no send? no understand why no listen and why use much money send thing.

Mom: and I repeat....
I SEND WHAT I WANT TO SEND :P
So there.  I just hope that you will get everything sent and that you can ENJOY it :) and such.  It made ME happy to send it :)
 the temple is a great thing to strive for with these families - getting them to the temple to gain those eternal blessings that can come only through those saving ordinances.
again...
I SEND cause it made me happy. I know you said not to - but you seemed so down last week - I just needed to give you a hug via mail :)

Aaron: Haha I have a gospel question for you, we´ll see if you know the answer :P Here in Costa Rica, there a ton of Nicaraguans, and they and Ticos usually just live together and have a family but never get married lawfully, the mom of the wife in this family we reactivated, her husband died. But they were never married by law.. so they actually can´t be sealed together because they were never married lawfully, how does that work out then? Haha. 

Mom: well she cannot be sealed to him in this life because they were never married to begin with - that is correct.  BUT all worthy "members" if you want to say it that way - or maybe I should say - all those who are worthy to be partakers of those blessings will receive them in the next life (even though it says that we wont be married in the next life).  We do know that there are lots of women who will never get to partake of those blessings in this life and they are promised those blessings in the next.

I think that goes for both sexes if you will - because they weren't married but that was prior to them knowing the gospel.  So IF he accepts the gospel (you said he has passed correct?) and his work is done for him - and if she is now active - and if they are meant to be together then I believe it will work out.  I think we don't understand God's ways but in the end it will work out and we will be okay with the results in the end. :)  We just have to move forward in faith that it will work out :)

Aaron: Hahahahahahaah Well said.

Mom: why the hahahahha?  was it a joke?

Aaron: No I dont know, I was in agreement.. same answer. Hey but I almost have to go, I love you a lot, I just got my scripture cases I think, But i will open them in the home take a picture and send it next week..=P.
ALSO. Another Apostle who I love. JOSEPH. B. WIRTHLIN. He´s So. GREAT:

Mom: ok -well glad you are doing better!! Have a great week - looking forward to seeing your scripture cases :)  I will see if I can find out more info for the uploading of the video :p
Did you get any of the emails I sent with photos on them?
Did I send you the story from last week about learning to live between the safety of the lines of the gospel? I love that story/ analogy :)  He was hard to listen to but loved reading his talks!!
LOVE YOU Aaron!! Will send that picture of the group next week for sure!!

Aaron: I gotem!
