          WEEK 16  -----    February 2nd 2010  -----   MADERA , CALIFORNIA

          Hey everyone!

Sorry emails are a day late but the computers were down yesterday so I'm writing today.
This week was my first week with my new companion and having to actually know were I'm going when going to appointments. To tell you the truth it wasn't that bad. I mean its hard at times when appointments fall through and people won't let you in but other then that its going great.
My new companion Elder Price is way different then Elder Machen, he is a little rough around the edges but I'll give him the old Glowa buff and it'll be fine . LOL!  We work well together and the work is going amazing.
Here is the break down of my day to day as you asked mom. I wake up at 6:30..... which is less of a challenge but still hard. Work out for 30 mins then from 7 to 8 shower, eat, get dressed, and are in prayer position by 8. From 8 to 9 is personal study, 9 to 10 is companion study and 10 to 11 is language study. We are out the door by no later then 11 and then we go teach from 11 to 5 with a break in between for lunch (we get an hour for lunch) then we always have a dinner appointment at 5 that lasts another hour and from 6 to 9 we have a team up and are out teaching again. So yes it is awesome and teaching is the most fun in the world. Miracles happen everyday.
The other day we were teaching a family and a man pokes his head around the corner as we are talking about Jesus Christ's ministry and says " I to want to know about God!" So he sits down and 5 mins later he says " were is your church and at what time does it start , so I can come and hear more of God". Its amazing and miracles like that happen everyday. The Lord always puts people in our path , all we have to do is just walk and be open to the impressions of the Spirit. So that's my days.
Life is good its hard to change companions, because you get used to one another but its a good kind of hard. I am able to grow so much having to plan a lot more because I know the area and the people. I love it here in Madera, this is the best place to be trained because the work is EVERYWHERE! its amazing.
Sorry to hear your sick mom but you know that's the breaks and I know as long as you have the pog and fat cat with you your gonna pull through . LOL!!  As for letter writing I have written only about  2 letters in the 7 weeks that I been in the field. There is never anytime, preparation day is not a day off at all. I feel more tired after it then any other day because we have to go all around town getting this and that so that we don't have to buy anything during the week. I have almost zero time to write letters. So anyone who is waiting for a letter I'm sorry that I haven't been better at it but that's the way the cookie crumbles. Just know that I think and pray for you and thank you from the bottom of my heart for writing me. I can't tell you how happy it makes me to get a letter in the mail.
Al-righty so something I found in my studies this week is that if you have a limited time to study never go into the bible dictionary because you never come out. I spend an hour in there 2 days ago because everything leads to something even cooler and more interesting then the last. It's a glorifying trap of knowledge. I love the Scriptures so much, they are amazing there is the answer to every question in there. I'm am continually finding more and more that everything shows that Christ loves us, he has made a promise to us which we can read in john 14:18 that he will never leave us comfortless, He will personally come to our rescue. I love this work and the gospel I am able to share with the people here in Madera.

I love you all
Love Elder Jason Glowa
