I'm so glad to hear that you had such a great time in Utah. You always deserve those. Sorry I didn't write last week. Really busy.
My living conditions are interesting. The members are awesome. The house is great. We have the basement to ourselves. But our street on the other hand. Oh Buddy! Our street is almost double the legal limit on the incline for the street. The incline of the street is about 17%. and it's a long street. Our window in our living room over sees the Valley. It is so cool. Elder Sproul is Very obedient. He is awesome. He has been out for 20 months. 
We had a baptism on June 11th and Janene from my old area got baptized on the same day so I got to see her after. Unfortunately I didn't get to see her get baptized but I did get a picture with her and she looked really happy. Our baptism that was on that day was with Tiffany Degraff. She is pretty awesome.  She has such a sweet spirit about her and her desire to learn is very inspiring. 
Dave and Lynn are from Newcastle, England. They are really cool and really nice. We just started teaching them the first discussion last night and after the lesson we were talking and Dave mentioned something that made us kinda go. What?!  He told us that both Himself and Lynn both want to be baptized and he said "the bishop didn't tell you?" Ya he might of wanted us to find out on our own. I'm super excited about that.
And Becca Taylor She is getting baptized on the 25th of June. We went in to our appointment with her with full intention to telling her. "OK we need to buckle down and get a date for your baptism."  Well after our lesson with her of course. So after our spiritual thought on Baptism, we said "so about your baptism." and she said. " I know. I have been thinking about it and I have been really thinking about getting to it soon. I have been thinking about the 25th." and we were all like, that is perfect. It's after your birthday and you can have a party after to celebrate.
Love you all,
Elder Lee

June 7, 2011

We are having a baptism on Saturday for Tiffany Degraff!  She is a wonderful young lady.  She is 10 years old and I was asked to give the opening prayer at her baptism! =) Janene's baptism is on the same day!  It is going to be awesome!!

I'm in Boise now!  My new companion is Elder Sproul. He is pretty cool... he was in BAND!! He played sax and he is from Hyrum, Utah. =)  I'm in the foothills above my old area so I get to go to the future baptisms of the people I was teaching before!! And guess what!!  Friday, Saturday, and Sunday were like the best days for missionary work. We taught 2 & 3rd lessons and got 2 new investigators!!! And I extended the baptismal invitation to Thomas. The guy I was talking about last week and he ACCEPTED!!! June 11th!! And Janene's Baptism is June 4th!! So hopefully (if we are not having a baptism here in Boise) I get to go back to both!!! And that will make 3 baptisms in Centennial Ward. I'm so excited for everyone over there!!!! AHHHH!!! XD!!! 

I am definitely sad that I am gone out of my first area. I keep calling it back home since I have been here in Boise.  Saturday and Sunday were really hard for me because I had to say good bye to everyone. We went by Bro. Stanfeild’s and we talked for a little bit and he said some things and I almost started to tear up. He is a wonderful, warm and kind hearted man from Sacramento. I have to introduce you guys to him when you come pick me up. I'm really going to miss that area. But I know that I am needed here in Boise.

I g2g. I love you all,
