Just a quick note, today is preparation day because next week is going to be transfer week and its on Monday this is the day president switched to preparation day. I just wanted to say thank you and that I'll see you around 1:35 am in Montreal Tuesday morning. Its crazy to think about what is happening. I am so tired it feels great I am going to work until I pass out tonight and then I will be seeing you all soon and give you the up dates of my life. I just wanted really to write that and make sure you had my Itinerary for my flight. I'm pretty sure you do, anyway I have to get going because we are trying to get everything done really fast so we can work as much as we can today seeing as its the last working day I will have in california. Hey so I hope you have been able to talk to the YSA elders so I can go with them on Tuesday for my last hours as a missionary.
I love you guys,
See you soon,

I understand I will be really weird for a while so just please bare with me as I try and get sane or at least some version of it. We went to the Temple yesterday and I felt so weird and awkward all day. It was just weird not having a definite companion even for a couple of hours, I just felt lost so bad, I hope you can still love me even though I'm crazy. LOL!!

Second to last email from California.

October 10th,2011

Hola Montreal,
So Monday for me is all travel so  won't read an email so you don't have to bother writing one. Oh and get this so because transfers are next Monday instead of the Wednesday we have another preparation day this week. Its on Saturday so the week all I want to do is work to the grind I have to have another prep. day. So I think we will just do laundry and get to work after that. So you can write on for Saturday I think I write one last email to you all.

Anyway enough of my babyness, so this is it. I'm not going to lie I am really weirded out by this and I'm going to be weird for a while so please just bare with me as my life does a complete 180 and I try and cope with it. On Tuesday if you can get Court, to call the YSA elders that would be great. I would love to go out with them and teach that day, hopefully I can call some of my friends and we can teach them. Anyway so please contact them and we will need to make arrangements for me to meet them somewhere probably after studies so like I guess around like 10:30, 11. Yea if you could talk to them and give me an update of what you know for Saturday that would be golden. 
This past week has been really up and down, we have been cycling through investigators like there is no tomorrow. Its crazy, I love it though, we are just running around teaching and committing everyone to baptism and they either drop us or we drop them for not keeping commitments. I am on a full sprint and its crazy, I am so tired I can hardly stay awake if I'm in one place for to long. So I need to stay on the move. But i am loving every second of it. I always want to do more, i wish we didn't have to be in by 9 i feel really limited when its 8:50 and we need to be home on time and are just running around looking for people to talk to. But the rules are there for our protection so I guess its a good thing.
We had presidents interviews last Saturday and it was great, we had a zone meeting and I was able to see elder Christian for the last time. I love that elder it was great to serve with him and see him progress in his mission. I have receive amazing new this passed week that bunch of the people that I have taught in past areas have been baptized and are now in full faith and fellowship. Its awesome, even though I was not there i know that i played a part in someone's life and its warms my heart for the joy that they now have being a member of the church.
One miracle I want to share with you is that last week we where, I guess we have been impressed to see this family in the ward that we really don't know to well and so we had a team up and went over and talked with them for a while got to know them. A very nice family, as we talk we come to find out that the husband is not less active but not even a member at all. It was crazy because he asked us to come back and we are seeing him tonight so keep your fingers crossed. Its so amazing, im excited to see all the little miracles that happen as you do all that you can.
I love my mission so much, I have seen great times, hard times, and sad times but I have become the person I am supposed to be. I know that I am different then when I said good bye thoughts 2 years ago. I hope you can tell me what is different because I don't really see a difference but I know that this has only happened because I have given my all. I can honestly say I have done my best. And I am so happy to say that. I have one week left to tare it up and I'm going to do my best. I know this gospel blesses lives and that this is the greatest happiness in the world. I love you all so much. Thank you, even though you have been far away you have made my mission. Mom and dad thank you. To all else who read this thank you for what you have done for me and know that this is Christ's church on the earth. Everyone that wants to know it can and I hope that they will. I know Joseph Smith was called to be the prophet of the restoration and that Christ is at the head of this church. The book of Mormon is the word of God and we have a modern prophet. 
I love you all, 
Love Elder Jason A. Glowa

On Saturday my email will be short because I'm going to try and just work as much as I can that day so sorry if its not as long as this one. Love ya anyway.

So this week was awesome !

October 3rd,2011

Hey everyone!
So this week was awesome, what really comes to mind out of everything is General Conference! That was so powerful I felt such a spiritual smack down it was great it just got me super on fire and ready to go out a work my butt off. There were alot of talks that really sunk deep into my heart and alot of them I will never forget. One of the ones that really hit me was Elder Waddell of the 70 Saturday afternoon, I felt as though he was talking right to me. I know that I had to hear that talk it was great. I couldn't look away as he spoke not even to write notes it was all 100 percent on him. I loved it. I love conference because i got alot of answers for my investigators. I loved the talks on the book of Mormon and the way they explained it, i have taken some of what I have heard and been able to use it to explain certain things better for example the support that the bible and book or Mormon give each other. I really feel my teaching and spiritual sensitivity have gone up just this weekend alone hearing and applying conference to my life.
So your having trouble with the seminary kids eh? Well just give me 10 mins a baseball bat, 2 cattle prods and some super glue and I'll have them begging for there old way of learning back. haha, I'm just kidding..........sort of. Don't worry mom and dad the kids will learn I think they pick up alot more then you think they do, I remember I learned I lot more then I thought I did. When I have needed my seminary knowledge on my mission magically it has been there. It sinks into the spirit of there minds and alot to the time we don't know we have it until we are back up to corner and we need it to survive.
The timer is running out on my because we are at the library today, so I'm sorry but ill have to end in a little. I just want to give you an update on the area. We have been working our butts off trying to find, teach and baptize and its been awesome to see the miracles of people coming out of nowhere are we work hard and try to talk with everyone. Its been great. One of the greatest blessings i have seen in the last week or i should say week and a half is a sister who has decided to come back to church. She is so amazing, we randomly went by and she was there and we got to know her and shared a scripture. After a church tour a couple of days later she said she was planning on coming back to church and has come every week since. We have met with this sister and I have seen the gospel light up her life.
On a similar note there was one sister who was completely posted to ever coming back to church or missionaries coming by but through a series of events one night we were able to contact her with the bishop. The spirit was not a all in here home, there was not a good feeling in there at all. She said she had been praying for us to come and help her. We have been by a number of times and she is reading the book of Mormon regularly and the spirit is in her home as well. Although she has not come to church yet I know that it will be soon.
Miracles of reactivation are happening so much we are just working hard and i know that the lord has provided us with some form or success to keep us going, i know that this is all the lord. i claim no part in anything other then just being a warm body in a lesson as the spirit tells me what i need to say. The lord is by my side and i know that the spirit is my best companion, our companionship is a threesome with the holy ghost and we have been blessed with great power in our teaching because of it.
I love you all so much and am grateful for all that you do and have done. For all the sacrifices you have made for me a owe my mission to you mom and dad. Had it not been for you i would not be here. Thank you for always encouraging me to do what's right.
I love you all.
Love Elder Jason A. Glowa
