aloha from the islands

ha the first email was a joke. now that i think of it you will probly open
this one first, so it wont be that funny now. but at least i tried.
well the truth is that i dont really know what to say. Talking with you
guys yesterday was awesome. i cant tell you how happy it made me to see
everyone. i still cant get over johnnies voice, lonicas teeth, jordans beard,
and jalens ... lack of going on dates. ha just kiddin DOG, i didnt date alot
either, and i turned out ok. Mom you look great, looks like P90XTREME was worth
the effort, congratulations. i have to admit that for mothers day if they give
us the option to skype i think i wont do it. for one main reason. when i
called on the phone, i have never felt really homesick afterwards. but
yesterday was pretty tough for me. seeing the house and the yard and all of you
made me realize how much i love it there, and how blessed i have been. It
doesnt make me want to come home or anything, but i miss you all. but at the
same time i know that it was a huge blessing being able to talk like that.
(especially so you could all learn my new dance move) how crazy is it that the
sound and picture traveled hundreds of miles through outerspace making it
possible for us to be together on christmas day. it was a christmas miracle
that i will never forget.
but now that christmas has passed its time to get back to work. like
i said we have kind of wound up without investigators, so we need to find them
and start preparing them for baptism. when i think about it, its a pretty big
challenge, but im excited to see how Heavenly Father will bless us if we try and
do the best we can. ive seen many times how sometimes it feels like we have
nothing, but then God puts right into our hands someone who is ready. so pray
for a miracle to come, and i am going to do the same.
well i dont know what else to say. i imagine that the package should be
getting here any day, right about the time that elder skousens candy is running
out. so life is good. im ready to work, and start a new year good. i think my
new years resolution will be to study the bible more, because i havent really
even read it before (dont tell anyone) but we will see what other goals i come
up with.
But i love you all. Have a good week. enjoy all of the blessings you
have and your ipod touches too. remember that we are counting down the months,
and i know that they will fly by. thanks for everything.
Elder jacobson
