How are your investigators doing? 
K-San, he's doing good, he's still looking good for the seventh, I just want to make sure that he's in it to win it, not just to try it out, I want to find out if he really believes or not. I don't want to just baptize him only to have him fall away. He's doing good though, it's progress!!!

S-San, we met with him just now with the Stake President ... and now he's starting to pray about baptism as well ... it was way sweet!!! He'll need a little time, he has some things he needs to figure out, but he's doing good for the time being!

F-San, he's kind of interesting, we're working with the Bishop and his mom to find out what we can/should do ...  but he does really want to get baptized, so we call it a win for now.

Look what we found on Saturday Night
Street Music ... it's so cool (@ 41 Seconds)

Father!! Thanks for the birthday wish and the advice about last areas! Thanks for all the letters too!!! One or two youth speakers ... I'll let you decide. I can go long and prove a good point, or short and powerful ... I once taught all five lessons and set a baptismal date in under a hour ... so it's whatever...

Mother!! I love it that the number two reason you love me is that I don't eat your cereal ... good to know ... I scored lots of good points there, sweet!!! Thanks for the letter and the video! It means a lot that u guys did a video and sent it ... I know how much you love to make videos of yourself.

TeJay!! Thanks for letter and advice! Your kids are adorable! And I'm so excited to play with them when I get home!! Porter is so big and Spencer is so cute!!! Thanks for the pictures! too!
Jandee! Thanks for the pictures! And I'm way excited to go swimming with the boys when I get back ... if I can remember how to do it. I'm really out of shape. Thanks for the birthday wish!

Sam!! Good luck on your marathon, thanks for the knowledge that turning twenty is super lame, glad I'm out of that phase! Good to know! I'm so excited to run your half marathon with you!!

Storm! I almost died when I saw your scarf!! It's so classy! Thanks for the videos and what not, it was way sweet!! Also it was good to know that school is going well ... even if it's long!

So this week I have no time. Like five minutes left ... just wanted to say that I love you and and that it was a great year! It doesn't really feel like I turned twenty-one, but then again, it doesn't really feel like I turned twenty yet either ... I honestly just feel older than everyone else here ... by like eight transfers ... it's crazy!!!

This week we've been thinking a lot about ward mission plans and what it takes to have a good one, and I decided  that it needs a lot of personal testimony. If you don't know that it's true, than you can't share it with those around you.

Anyways, need to go, I'll try to send some pictures too!!
Love, Elder Griffiths
