Elder Parry is awesome. Sometimes I feel like I was here to prepare the way for him to be here. But really, we have been able to do so much work and meet so many people since he has gotten here. We are still working with a lot of the same people but I'm starting to see progress that hasn't been there before. It so cool. Also, Elder Parry and I got to have lunch with his brother and his family because he lives like 20 minutes from the house that we are staying in. That was a lot of fun. P90x3 is now a a thing and we are doing that too. So much pain to come.
That is so cool that you guys are going to Kirtland before General Conference. Remember to write down the things that you do, it will probably be something that you guys are going to want to remember. I need to be better at writing in my journal... But anyways that is really cool. I hope your substitute teaching things works out well, I already know that you are an amazing teacher.
Let Alex know that I love him and hope that he is still growing and becoming better. He better not have stopped exercising, because one of my goals was to be as fit as him and if he has stopped then I will feel like I cheated. Never give up, never surrender.
Definitely planning on going to college, no better place to learn how to create Skynet. Everyone has a dream, and higher education is my path to mine.
Missions are great and I love you guys! TTYL
Love Elder Garrett Darren Smith
