New Pictures

Casey is doing wonderful in the MTC. He is a little tired of the food but is loving learning the gospel. He has an amazing testimony of the gospel and has grown so much in the short time that he has been there. He sent some pictures from the MTC for everyone to enjoy.

The back of the Picture said. The Night Elder Francis left for Peru. Me and my Cali Boys having a good time!

The Picture said "The G-Town Missionaries on our Sunday Temple Walk the day before Elder Neal went to Nicaragua"

The back of the picture says "We be happy. We be serving the Lord. We be the G-Town Boys"

It's great to see that Casey is doing good and making the most out of the opportunity he has to serve the Lord. We love hearing from him and he LOVES hearing from his Friends and Family.

Letter from Casey

hey hey everybody

Sounds like life is going good. sorry the stupid key boards don't work all to well so its really not my fault I promise. Alisa was telling me that I sounded like an uneducated fool but the key boards are all jacked up and so nothing really works all to well, but hey its the general message that counts right? So wow where to start hmmmm haha... The foods is pretty ok I guess but gets super old super fast and gives all us guys way bad gas so its honestly pretty funny being in a class with 4 sister missionaries too. But my comp keeps getting weirder by the day so 8 weeks from now its gonna be VERY interesting. I guess you could say he means well for the most part but hes getting on my nerves with a few things but what do i do? The shower and the bathroom are the only time he won't be right next to me so I bet that you could guess where I spend a lot of my time. But all things considered every things going fairly smooth I guess.

So there are 2 elders going to Peru so they leave us in like 2 weeks which really sucks cuz I get along with both of them really good. Elder Francis is from Cali and Elder Harris is from Idaho. Me and Elder Francis get along probably the best and hes leaving me so its a bummer but what do ya do. Then my comp is going to New Jersery and the other 2 elders are going to Minnesota. Then there is one of the sisters - hermana Keele from Springville is going to My exact same mission. Then in our zone there is a whole district going to the Houston south mission next week so its kinda cool.

Everything else is going great though. Thanks so much for all the letters I love em keep em all coming. The spirit here is crazy too. I've never been so "spiritual" in my life for this long so its pretty neat. I suppose. We got to go to the temple today and it was amazing but it was the biggest session id ever been in. The chapel was packed when we went into the room there was only 2 empty seats. But we all go as a zone every Friday to the 10 : 20 session so its really cool I got a ton of my ?'s I had answered so it really hit the spot and I'm really looking forward to going again next week. I'm super glad that they let us go every week, we can pick what we want to do when we get there to so its really pretty neat.

Then this sunday is mission conference and fast Sunday, so its Both really good and really bad at the same time. The good is we all get together and get to have a really good devotional or whatever ya wanna call it and the bad is they lock up the cafeteria so we CAN NOT EAT till 5 so that is no bueno. Our fire side this week was really good though we have one every Sunday and Tuesday night and we got the presiding bishopric to come this week so it was really good but the word is its about time to get an apostle again so that will be good. That's about it for this week. The only other thing I can think of is how good the Sundays and w-ends are cuz its ice cream days. There super good, its all you can eat and I think that may have been part of Tylers weight he put on.

But thanks a ton for your thoughts letters and prayers. I love all of it, please keep em coming. God bless ya. love Elder Bown
