I cant believe I go home tomorrow.. i feel President Blatter is going to start handing me my plane ticket and then pull it back and say sike.... lol 2 years has gone by so fast.. I am so grateful for the time ive had to serve Christ. I went to the temple on friday and it felt so good to ponder and reflect on my mission, I felt the lord was proud of me for my work. Ended the mish with a splash too:) Veronica got baptized. It was such a spiritual baptism, she was in tears after her confirmation and told us she felt so pure and happy. Nothing feels better than helping someone on their path of redemption. Christ is my savior, I love him and will serve him to the end. I love you all see you tomorrow.

Hey, we have a baptism this next week.
Veronica is awesome! Lance Malmberg married veronica in mexico brought her back and ever since then we have been teaching her. She read the Book of Mormon already and has read all of the pamphlets. She is way elect. She is probably going to be baptized in American lake so that will be sweet.
This is the last week of my mission..... i cant believe it. I am excited to see all of you soon. tuesday at 1;10 am is when I arrive.... from what ive heard.. crazyyyyy
love you all

Dad, you always have way good insights. Jesus last week was epic! he will provide me with a great week.there is a recent convert in our ward he was baptized in january he is way cool plays rugby on the army team. He was super devote catholic and his wife converted him:) his wife bore such a powerful testimony yesterday! She was super sick at the temple doing baptisms for the dead and her husband took her to the hospital and before they went in he asked her if she wanted a blessing (he was recently ordained) The spirit just hit me way strong. I feel too often testimonies arent from the heart here in washington at least.Everyone just has story time for ike 5 min... Her testimony was so sincere and heartfelt it was awesome!Good luck to the logan!!! good for him:)got a final baptism next week and it might be in a lake.. that would be sweetness i remember when you told me about your tism in the ocean and you didnt wear shoes.. got all cut up.. dangI am excited to see the family!!! i love you pops!!! see ya next weekOn Sun, Aug 7, 2016 at 9:50 AM, <email@example.com>wrote:Hey Son.
Still got over a week to save Gods children in WA Tac. Look what Jesus did in the last week of his life. A ton of good can happen in a week. I am sure you will lay it down for this last big push.
Logan is heading out Wednesday and I think uncle Jimmy is feeling that heavy but happy heart. I know that seeing you has given him great hope and encouragement. I know it was a huge blessing for Logan.
I was eating lunch with a buddy and old Hayden Clegg comes walking in and came over to talk to me. Seems like he is doing good. I love that you will come home and get right into school. We must be anxiously engaged in a good cause. Down time is often the Devils time to try and wreck us. I don't know anyone who fades away when they are anxiously engaged in the gospel of Christ.
I hope and pray this week will be a wonderful conclusion for a powerful missionary who has laid it all on the alter. I know you have given your all to the Lord. The Lord will let you know this week that he is pleased with your offering. Well done thou good and faithful servant there is a place prepared for you in the mansions of my Father.
I love you with all my heart. My heart leaps with joy concerning your mission and the blessings you have experienced.

Mom, I will see you in a week... pretty crazy... next email session will be weird hahaha
I feel excited to come home. I have worked my hardest it will be good to start the next part of life.
I am still nervous and will miss the mission a ton and I bet i will feel lost for awhile but thats just life
Did jack serve a full mission or go home early?
That will be a hard day getting released...
I get home for like the last week of the Olympics right?
dang i thought it was gonna be the sunday after I get home.. 27th works tho no problem
im probably going ot just leave a ton of stuff here give it to other missionaries.. I may need you to send me some money for the way home just in case cuz i dont have any money from the mish
the baptism didn't work out last week. but its really solid for this weekend. she speaks hardly any English so its kinda hard to communicate i should've studied harder in Spanish class
this week was lots of hard work the weather cooled down quite a bit so it was nice. we knocked lots and didnt see much fruit but we found a kid named talan who ran at nationals with conner mantz. His dad is a member and talan is visiting from utah. His parents got a divorce and his mom is anti he wants to be baptized so imma probably baptize him when i get home. that will be cool!!
i go to the temple for my final temple trip on friday.l have my final interview with president blatter tomorrow final zone meeting wednesday its gonna be a fun busy week. loves with all my heart
cant wait to see ya momma

I can hardly stand it!!! You're to your second to the last p-day. How you feeling about coming home? We are over the moon excited! But can you still email me once a week haha I guess even better you can talk to me in person. Saw Jack Godfrey today. He had his girlfriend at church with him. Dad gave a powerful testimony today it's always good.
Dad is talking to Present O right now about your release. I hope you won't be too bummed taking off that badge. I'm sure it will be a hard and emotional thing to do. You've done us so proud and you are returning with honor plus much more!!
The summer Olympics just started. Remember when you'd say mom who took the Bronn? So cute...
How's this week gone? I'm excited to hear about the baptism from last week.
We had Logan and family over for the last Sunday dinner together. He leaves Wednesday for the Provo MTC.
Yesterday we participated in a softball fundraiser for a little girl in our ward that had heart surgery and will most likely need a heart transplant in the future. Her dad is self employed and they have a huge amount of medical bills. It was Dad cole Cade Hannah kimball and me plus some other peeps we didn't know. We made it to the championship game and lost 12-8. We played 5 total games. It was fun we wished you could of been with us. They raised lots of money for the family. Felt good to help and serve. Our ward has changed a ton. Lots of new people!!
Your homecoming is August 27.Not sure if you knew that??
Leave or give away things you can't fit or don't want. Or mail a box home. What do you think?
I hope you had a great week and this next week will be productive and successful. I'm sure you've been able to stay focused you're my son!!
I love you so much my son!!! All my love Momma

We are definitely getting down to the nitty gritty! Elder Andrus reported today. He did a great job. So great you got to meet up with Logan do some missionary work. Also that you got to see uncle jimmy. They said you are killin it. I was 5 miles from you seeing all those Tacoma signs was way way weird!!
Supes mom called. Asked me if you'd write him a letter of encouragement. He's struggling doesn't feel prepared and doesn't know if he wants to stay out, super homesick. He looks up to you I bet your words could help him lots!
Heyy I know this is the last thing on your mind but I was wondering if we could pull it off. Would you want to go to NYC in September over Labor Day?? Haley and Mckay want us to come before they leave at the end of September. Gotta look into flights if that's something you want to do.
Have you met a lady in your ward named Beverly Taylor? She was in my ward growing up.
Pres Blatter told Jim you are amongst the best missionary they have ever had!!! wowzers how truest awesome is that?? When did it all click for you?? I'm sure you've had your struggles and moments but I feel like you have embraced the mission wholeheartedly. I feel like your mission experience couldn't even have been better. What a blessing and a gift you are! So proud of you son!!
We have one more swim session starting tomorrow. I'm over full with a waiting list. Pray it goes well🙏🏽 we're teaching a man in our ward that serves with dad in the yms how to swim. Yikes!!🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽
We had an awesome fishing trip and visit toSeattle and Gig. I forget how beautiful it is. I was so blessed to grow up there. The weather was so beautiful even hit!! How I love the Luger sound. We'll have to go visit next summer meet all your people.
Love you so so much son!! All my love Momma💕
