Family and Friends:

Well, this week was a good one. We had Alma's baptism on Sunday, which was great. She was so afraid to get in the water (we don't know shy) but after she was baptized, she didn't want to get out! It was some nice warm water, that would be a first on my mission. Elder Schultz had the opportunity to baptize her. It was his first one on his mission. He felt really good afterwards. I was pleased that she got baptized also, seeing as I am the senior companion, and hey, first baptism as a senior companion is a great thing to accomplish. My companion and I have been working really hard to do it. This week we have three planned! Ana, and her son Brian and also Tonia who is Alma's sister. Please keep them in your prayers this week so that they have all the help they can get to get to their baptisms.

I had the opportunity to go and have an interview with President today, and he gave me some great advice to help me get over the "one year blues" that I seem to be going through right now. He told me that even he went through the same thing, and he told me how to get over it. He is a great guy and it'll be hard to see him leave in a few weeks, but I am also excited to get to know President Call. I have heard a lot of really great things about him.

I love you all! I hope you are well!

From Michelle:

Short and sweet today! I love how Iver just tells it like it is, but those of us who know and love him can literally read between the lines and see what is in his heart. He knows he still has a lot of work to do, and is worried about getting it all in! He also wrote a very special, heartfelt note of love and thanks to Corbin for Father's Day. I will be slipping it into a card on Sunday! Yay, Iver! You are such a wonderful missionary!
