May 6, 2013...Birthday Week! 20!!

Hey hey hey!!!!!! haha mom you're too late! The news about your trip to BYU was old news haha Natali told me last week that ya'll were going to do that! haha. I will say, they are my new favorite people other than you guys! The've written me twice in the last few weeks and sent me an email haha. Oh and also just so you know, I did not get transfered and neither did Elder Lopez. We are both still here in Capitol hill for the next six weeks. It's his last transfer too haha, but he isn't trunky at all, it's like he just got out i swear haha so much energy. No we don't get along, but I'll just have to get over it. This is where God put me so I'll just endure whatever he wants, but it is really sad. Because both of us stayed, it's pretty much for sure that I'll be in the Seattle mission when the mission splits. I'll never get to serve in federal way or renton again :( Oh and also, i have no Idea what time I'll be calling on sunday. We don't get out of church until 2 either (3 your time) so It will most likely be after that. Not much happened this week with missionary work haha so I don't know what I can write about that. We've had a pretty rough time finding new investigators lately so our investigator pool is dying out. I haven't gotten the box yet, but I should be getting it tomorrow morning at district meeting! Tell grandma I say thank you for the extra cash in my account! I can't belive I'm going to be 20 and grant is going to be 23. We're all becoming adults now. freaky. We still all act like kids haha. Oh well, society is ever-changing. Adults will be kids and kids will be adults 10 years from now haha. Also Trey, don't think I'm ignoring you right now, I got your email and I am going to write you a handwritten letter back so that I can make it more personable than just an email. Hey I love you all so much and hope you have a great week! Hey and all of you don't get too caught up in birthday week with me and grant and holly and miles, you have to remember that it's mother's day week too k?? good. Okay love you so much! have a great week!
Love, Elder Bailey Brimhall :)

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAlrighty then!!! (anyone catch that quote??) So first off, i did not get the picture of mallards on the porch. Lame! So as far as I know, Diane's baptism didn't go through, so I didn't get to go, but she'll get there, just keep her in our prayers:) Our car is getting some body repairs today, so we're just riding around with the zone leaders for today. This week was pretty good. Janelle and her daughter Eliana are coming along well. They are coming to church now and janelle wants to quit smoking so that she can get baptized! Sweet! Pray for her please! Thanks! Lena did baptisms in the temple???? YEAH!!!!! Tell her what up for me plz:) Tell trey I did get his email this and last week. Suggestions?? Well I have a couple. One pertains to mission prep, but the other pertains to this business with Natali thing. I'll give the latter first. That is really cool and super exciting, but as we learned with the tuxes, even family business can get far too heated way to quickly. Please be careful about that, and I personally think that the key for both ends is humility and submission. Now that doesn't mean give in to everything the other person wants, but keeping an open mind to others thoughts and ideas is an essential principle of life, especially in business. That goes for both of you ladies. Second, my suggestions on early MTC work is reading and activities. Read a lot from Preach My Gospel as well as the four standard works, particularly the Book of Mormon and the New Testament. Do the activity boxes in preach my gospel. And even though it's kinda wierd and awkward, do role-plays, meaning one of you is the investigator, and the other is the missionary, and the missionary has to find, and resolve the concern of the investigator using principles contained in preach my gospel and the scriptures. That will be great preparation! Gotta go guys! Love you much and hope you all have a wonderful week!!
Love, Elder BBB>>>>>>>>     (>")>...that looks kinda like kirby from smash bro's haha

Hey hey! What's going on dudes?? So I want you to do a couple things for me. First I want you to tell natali that now I will be extremely disappointed if I don't get a megaphone shout out at the airport haha. Secondly, I want you to get amber's mailing address form her parents cause she wrote me forever ago and I put the letter in my letter file and totally spaced writing her back. So if you could please Send me that next week, that would be great, thanks! Well this week was not too bad. We are finding lots of new investigators, the problem is that we end up dropping them in like a week because non of them want to commit to anything. But we did find janelle and her daughter eliana. Awesome people and will probably get baptised within the next few months! Oh!!!!! One more request! Do you remember Diane and Dwayne that I taught for 4 1/2 months in Feddy Way?? Well Diane is finally off of alcohol and is getting baptised this weekend!!!!!!!!!!! Wooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You have no idea how awesome that was for me to hear!!! So my request is that you can pray for a way that I can be there at the baptism. The only way usually is if I can get an investigator to go all the way down to federal way with me, but we don't have solid investigators right now, so please please help me out and pray that I can be there!! Thank you!! No I'm good with whatever you send me in the box mom haha. Thank you :) That's pretty much it for this week! Not much else is going on haha. But i love you guys and hope you have a great week!!
     Love, Elder Brimhall :) :)

What is poppin?? I am doing alright alright! I love you guys and I thank you so much for your prayers and fasting for me, especially the last few weeks! They have been rough haha just because of the area and companion and stuff. Not that I don't like my companion, it's just that we have very different views on how missionary work should be done and that makes it hard to really be united in what we are doing. I got a letter from the Thompsons! They sound super awesome! Haha tell them they can write me whenever they want to, and I will probably write them back most of the time! As for my birthday.... if you really want my suggestions here they are: first of all you don't have to get me anything, let's be honest, a letter is most likely the only thing I can get for ya'll on your birthdays haha. Second, if you really insist, then at least don't spend a lot of money on it; Gifts are expensive anyways, plus you would have to pay for shipping. Third, it can't be big, I already cant even fit all of my crap in my three suitcases when i get transfered haha. So those are my suggestions :) On another note, you guys don't have to worry about me, things out here are rough sometimes, but ultimately the Lord is taking pretty good care of me! Keep the faith fam! I love you all so much! Hope you have a great week! Yo quiero ustedes tener un buen dia! Love you!
  Love, Elder Bill :)
