Hey Mom and the rest of the world! First things first.... had a successful
baptism last Sunday! J is such a stud and he's gonna be a great member for
the rest of his life. He just needs to get confirmed this Sunday. And I guess
an interpreter named W or something is coming to church this Sunday. He did
the Joseph Smith movie and I'm looking forward to meet him. With our other
investigators and such we are trying but it's all in the Lords hands. We are also trying to search for new investigators too cuz
we don't want there to be a let down in the work.
Sound like everything
is really crazy at home! That is super sweet that Elder H and Elder
G are companions. I will probably get the package tomorrow at zone
conference but I'm sure everything in it is fine. Shoutout to Jake Kramer and
Jordan Wetsel! Sorry you both got puked on. How come no puke got on Chandler?
I think it is Jordan's responsibility to puke on Chandler ;)
Shout out to
my boy Kale Wright! Can't wait to hear about your mission stuff bro! 4 for 4!
I love you all and must now say goodbye and to the edge, Elder Schoemig
Wow Mom, I can't believe that about
Danny. He's such a stud and really taught me how to be humble and loving.
Dannnnnnny!!! I looooooove yoooou!
Thanks for sending the package. I'll
probably get it next week at the temple or zone conference.
Ok biggest story of them all.... are you
ready for it?.... ok here it goes.... J (our Chinese investigator) is
sooooooo awesome! He's a super stud and I can't wait for his baptism, this
Sunday! Elder L will be baptizing him cuz he really wanted to and I
know how much he wants to so I told him he could do it. We had another VC tour
on Monday with John, plus F and M, and our super awesome friend S
R, who is a member. It was really touching and powerful, especially when
we invited them to pray near the temple by themselves and I went and prayed for
them in the trees and the glow bugs were all around me. F and M are
stubborn though and still said they will go to church but not be baptized. But
J is awesome! He told M flat out yesterday in our tithing lesson that
she should get baptized someday! What?! How sweet is that? Gosh I'm just
sooooo pumped for him he is the smoothest guy.
Today we played touch football outside the
Smithsonian "castle" with a bunch of Elders and it was soooo hot. It was sup
totes ridic ;) And I got my picture taken with Miss Sugar Land. It was funny
Elder T (we are on exchanges) was like, lets go get a picture! So we did.
Anyway I love you all! To the edge, Elder Schoemig
Thanks so much for the email mom! one more thing to put in the box, the sd card
from my camera! the one I have now is running out of memory.
Wow, all of us in the Scouting program! In the
Ensign this month there is a super good article on Scouting and how it helps
young men on the path. Shout out to my Scoutmasters and leaders! Brothers
Gardiner, Richards, Hunt, Maxwell, Neider, Isaacson, Chidester, Kammer, Mihu,
and Carlson! And if I forgot someone I'm very sorry. But I think that's
I love the pics of Grandma and Grandpa Jarvis! They look super
happy and their place looks sweet! I vow one day to visit the far off islands
of New Zealand! And yes please send me a map of NZ too.
Wow I can't
believe Simon is gonna be back so soon. Seems like yesterday we were skating in the ramp in Davy's backyard haha. Super excited for my boy Brady Webb! Big B!!!
Well today we had a bbq with a dillion missionaries
at our bbq. Ok not a dillion but 20ish came over and the house was packed and
it was awesome. ASL missionaries know how to throw a party. It comes from my
practice of having dances in Mama and Papa Lewis's basement.
awesome day yesterday! We had a sup totes awes district meeting, then went to
lunch with Elder L and B, our Zone Leaders. Elder B said he
reminded of Teancum in the Book of Mormon. I was very humbled, that is super
high praise. Plus Teancum is one of my favorite all time BoM dudes. Then went
to the VC and had a lesson with J and Bro T. The Spirit was super
powerful, especially when we watched the Joseph Smith movie and walked around
the temple and took pictures. We invited him to baptism on June 24th and he
accepted! Wooo hoooo! Baptizing the world, one person at a time! haha We are
so excited for him, he is super cool and funny. We also had a lesson with A
at Gallaudet and then went to F's house at 7:30ish and taught F,
M, and J again! Super cool day! Another highlight of the day was when we were at the VC waiting for J, two of
my boys from the 2011 Lone Peak state champ football team were there! Sam
and Tyler! Those two men are studs and I was so happy to see them! Wow
I was in shock as I just hugged them. I love those boys.
Keep on havin
fun at home, cuz I am havin fun here! I love you Mom, Dad, Amanda, Codie,
Autumn, Chandler, Dakota, Carson! I love you all my aunts, uncles, and
cousins! I love my grandparents! I love my friends, especially my brothers
Kale, Mike, Elder Harley and Elder Lewis! I love the Gospel and I loooooove
Wow. First of sorry I forgot to inform everyone that P-day was moved to
Thursday cuz we went to the Washington Nationals game today! Super
sweet and tons of fun even though they lost to the Mets, 3-1. Got tons
of pictures. Did everyone know that Bryce Harper, the star
centerfielder for the Nats, is a member? And he is only 2 months older
than I am!
The pictures of my Grandparents setting apart and departure for
Wellington New Zealand mission made me cry. I don't know why so don't
ask. I'm gonna miss them even though we've already been apart for the
past 4 months. Somehow the American continents won't be the same
We had two super cool stories this week. The first is on Thursday
night Elder L and I chose 3 streets each on a section of our
huge wall map and then shared em with each other. One street matched!
So friday we went and tracted it and we met this guy from Cameroon named
C. He was super cool and said
he believed our words! I asked him if he believed God sent us and he
said he was in the basement and had a feeling to go check the door and
he opened it and there we were! Wow so awesome! It's a referral for
the English elders in that area, but still cool we got to meet him.
The next is on Sunday afternoon we were checking a referral from
Elders T and V and we decided to knock on a door and a woman
named B and her son C live there. They are super cool
and B has met with Elders before but because she's in the
National Guard (shout out to my Uncle Tim!) she had to stop. Her
fiance has recently died so she was very emotional. I asked her the
same question I asked C, if God sent us, and she said Saturday
night she decided to fast and pray on Sunday for more wisdom and lo and
behold we show up! Wow I felt prompted to ask her to be baptized and
she accepted! Another referral for the English program, but we are all
on the same team here :)
Congrats to my little bro Dakota on makin it far in his baseball tourney, I hope he wins!
love my family and I love my God. This is my testimony, that the Lamb
who was slain now lives. His love is all-encompassing and
incomprehensible to my mind, but I know one thing, that He does love me,
and you, whoever you are.
(Mom's note: He did not get transfer so he gets to stay in his area. :) Dakota's team won 3rd place tonight.)
