Turquoise and Silver

   This week has been pretty good! It started kinda slow, but we picked it back up! We taught 7 lessons this week, but they were all pretty good! I conducted my first exchange this week. It was pretty fun! Pretty stressful though! That is how the whole district leader thing is, just stressful. It isn't unbearable, but not fun, haha!
   That is funny Sister Bigelow gets a kick out of my emails, haha! She is pretty funny.
   That's good that the Berhisels enjoyed your work! Every time you made our flowers they were like the best at the dance!
   So, I will be able to see all my previous companions again next Tuesday, because we are having a district leader training. Weird how that all worked out!
   That is bittersweet that you are done at the surgery center! So how often are you working at MSTI now?
   What is new and exciting there in Twin?
Love ya!

Those are some nice war wounds! Haha! 
That is good y'all had a good time at the reunion!
That is awesome that stake conference was so good for you guys too! Dad didn't sound too happy that he had to say the opening prayer though!  haha!
That is sad that they will be released soon!
The moccasins are so comfy!!!
That is good that Dotty is doing so good! 
That is awesome all that new stuff is coming in to Twin! I am going to get all my money selling plasma when I get home haha! 
This week was really good! I went on exchanges in Lukachukai! And Elder Van Ry did really well taking over the area ! He set us up to pick up 2 new investigators! So we went back yesterday and picked one of them up! It was awesome! I told him that he should be getting ready to take over the area next  transfer! 
The other 2 Elders had a baptism on Saturday! It was good! I interviewed them all and they were all super prepared! Then I was able to confirm one of them on Sunday. That was pretty neat! 
But other than that our week has been pretty good! 
Love ya!

13 Month Mark!

I totally didn't realize that yesterday was my 13 month mark until one of the Elders brought it up yesterday! I also just realized that I will hit 14 months while here in Round Rock still! 14.5 months, 2 areas, 4 comps! Whoot whoot! 

I am freaking jealous that y'all are going to Gerties today! You are probably there right now! I could use a good case of the Gerts Squirts right now! Wow! This email has a lot to do with excretement's!

Congratulations on your work eval! That is freaking awesome!! Speaking of careers, I changed what I want to do again! But, USU will still be a great school for engineering! But I probably won't come home early for school. I ate my own words! I was talking to Elder Cook about it one day (thinking I was gonna be able to fly under the radar my whole mission) I said I will go home early for school unless I am in a leadership position. Well, now that I am in that  position I will eat them!

That is sweet y'all are going to phoenix in February! Haha! That is a weird senior trip, but that will be fun for y'all!

That is cool dad is saying the opening prayer in Stake Conference! Haha! 

How is Mike Cutler doing? 

That does suck that we lost to Wood River! They were always like last in regionals!

Enjoy y'alls Gerties! Lucky ducks! 

Love ya!

Jeffrey R. Holland

Letter from Tuesday:
Dear Family,
   This past week has been really good. We have had some really awesome lessons! 
   Elder Van Ry is doing pretty good! He is caught in an awkward stage where he wants to teach everyone everything, but he has a hard time teaching some people some things.
   Bobby, our gangster investigator, is doing awesome! He has been doing a really good job at trying to keep the Word of Wisdom. He relapsed this last week, but he saw immediate lack of blessings from it so he will do better this time! He loves church and I love seeing him there! His past life is pretty obvious but it is even more obvious that he is changing. Remind me to tell you what his tattoo says some day!
   We have been walking our buns off lately trying to contact a lot of potential investigators Elder Cook and I found, but never got back around to contacting. It has been pretty successful.
   I love the Navajo People! They are so fun, loving and loveable! I am seriously looking forward to the day that the Lamanites "blossom as a rose!"
  I love y'all!
Elder Cade

Email from today:
This week was pretty sweet! The Fireside was amazing! Elder Holland is freaking amazing we didnt get to meet him personally, but just being in the same room as him was pretty sweet! He spoke mostly about personal conversion! That has been the big push lately! Because it tends to be that you have converted missionaries you tend to convert more people! He is way more animated and less serious than he is in conference! But still extremely intense where you felt like he was screaming right at you! I did see Caleb and at first I couldn't believe who his trainer was! He came walking in with Elder Cook! I was a little disappointed that E. Cook gets to train him but that is freaking awesome! So he is over serving in the Rez half of Page! So that was pretty cool! When he saw me yelled ''Cade!'' then he corrected himself and was like ''I mean  Elder!'' It was hilarious! He did give me a hug! Haha! Then the giant Sasquatch named Elder Kay walked in and plopped down right next to me! That was awesome we have way too much fun together! We were cracking jokes the whole time! Kay is an old man now he is getting ready to hit 18 months here in a few weeks! Its crazy how it flies by! He had to make fun of me for being DL even though he's still one! But now all of may previous companions are currently training and district leading! Haha! 
That is nutso psycho that you did all  the flowers! So are y'all thinking about making that a business? That would be pretty sweet! HAha!
Thanks for the pics they are awesome except the middle one haha!
''Have to give Sister Bigelow a chance''? You didn't think I was or what? Haha! You should tell her I'm a DL now then see what she thinks of me haha!
That is a bummer that gma is not doing as well as gpa! But that is awesome that yall have an Isom Reunion coming up! Tell everyone I say hi!
I am so jealous all the kids get to go to General Conference! I am excited to watch it though! What is the rule for like Colton and I going when I get back? Or would we have to go separate? You should ask for me!
I did get the micro t! Tell him sorry. I thought I told him! 
That is sweet that Ry and Shell are getting a new puppy though! That will be fun for them!
Well, talk to ya next week! 
Love ya!

New Calling!

First thing this morning we get this email that leaves us all in suspense until this afternoon!

We are headed to football practice so we won't be able to email until this afternoon sometime. But that gives y'all some time to guess what my transfer news is! It is pretty crazy so think outside the box! I will tell you it this afternoon when we get on, but only if everyone takes a guess what it is! Otherwise I won't tell anyone!!!! Muhaha

So this afternoon, we finally got the news:
I am continuing to train Elder Van Ry in Round Rock along with being called as the district leader! I am poopin my pants! Oh....And we have a fireside with Jeffery R. Holland this Saturday where I will be able to see Caleb and everyone else!

This week has been pretty good and crazy! Well, you already know my news! 
Pretty Nutso-psycho! DL sounds like such a load of new responsibilities! I guess the Lord qualifies who He calls! I will just bank on that and "go and do" Haha!
That is rough that Sis Bigelow isn't doing so good! I hate having to take sick days! They make me feel so worthless!
That is crazy Katy is back already! It seems like she just left like right before all of us did! That's good to hear she is doing good though!
That is also rough that Grandma isn't doing the greatest! But it sounds like everything will work out! I did just email her so she will be getting that hopefully! I am going to write her out a letter too! That is freaking hilarious that grandpa threatens people with you haha!!
That was nice of you to take Hancock out for his B-day! How did they like TF sandwich co? Oh I've got to tell you! Remember how I took all y'all there before I left? Well, right before I left Cortez the Cooks took me out to a place that was so stinking similar it was kinda creepy but really funny! 
That is awesome Bernie is almost there! Good luck with the wedding coming up though haha! Tell them all Congrats from me! 
I will try my darndest to write y'all a letter this week! When I get yours.
Love y'all! 
Elder Cade Joseph Robinson
