In the end.....Mooker wins!

Man, don't worry about not writing, i understand, and i can't complain, cause i never wrote anyone on a mission, sooo...Everything looks great for the baby room, and Utah sounds like fun. Man, that is crazy, that Matt is getting married now too...oh well, Today we went to the temple, and we have our interviews right in the middle of pday, but that's how it is sometimes...what can you do? This week, i gave a talk in sacrament meeting, and it was about how the ward and the missionaries could work better together, and the answer is through "preach my gospel", so that's what i talked about, and it went over pretty well, we have made a new member missionary plan, that should help the members really strengthen their testimonies, and to help the relationship betwixt us to be stronger and more productive. Our main investigator right now is on vacation, so we are doing even more finding time, but we need it, and it is a large part of the work, it is pretty hard to go out there and do it sometimes, but it has to be done, and we are the ones to do it..yeah. WEll, other than those things, not too much has been happening, Elder Braithwaite is going home in like 3 weeks, and then i will definitely be getting someone new, so we shall see how that goes, until then, i guess i am just going to have to put up with him, he's not bad or anything, i am just sayin' :) anyways, it is colder now, so out come the suitcoats, and scarves, I hope you all enjoy that heat! it is sooo nice. Man, Matt! Just be sure to not have a baby until i get home, geeez, whatever, i was here for steve's wedding, steve is here for yours, and you will both be there for mine! so, i guess i win in the end after all,,,hahahah,,,uhhh. well, Take care and know that i love you all, Tschüß! Love Elder Bentz aka Mooker

Where is everybody?

Where is everybody. Forget about me? You are all in Utah for the babay shower huh? yeah, oh well, this week was pretty sweet, we didn't get to do too much, but we watched the last session of Gen. Conference, and Jeffrey R. Holland was way good, he gets intense! It is getting colder now, yesterday was the first day when I wore a jacket, since last winter at least, so that is a sign. Our main investigator right now is on vacation for like 2 weeks, so we will be doing more finding time than before! YEAH!, no, it really isn't that bad, but it doesn't help that it is getting colder now too, but, it's all good, don't worry. WEll, I will write more next week, and hopefully I will have something more to tell you, sorry...Tschüß! Love Elder Bentz aka Mooker

I'm a Lonewolf...

We just told Mooker that his brother Matt is engaged to Melanie Buchanan and they will be getting married December 19, 2009

Wow, nice work Matt, it hasn't even been 6 months...DANG IT!!!!! PACKERS!!!!!! I hate the Vikings, and FAVRE now...I really hope they can do good this season. To answer the questions, The mission is going good, Our prospects right now, are few and far between, but they should be picking up in the near future. That Temple tour with our one investigator went really well, we will meet with him again tonight, the other one we had planned with that ''sweet'' family, didn't happen, so....such is life out here, maybe they will answer their phone tonight? we shall see. Hope everything was fun in Utah, and that you had a good time talking about how you will be a grandma and have another daughter in law soon, so many other mothers would be jealous of you if they knew...Shoot, this means that I am gonna be like the wayward son when I get back, struggling to find a wife, to live up to the standards that my brothers have set...whatever, I'm a lonewolf, I don't need no stinkin' girlz!...yet :) Well, thanks for the news, I will write you again next week I am sure...BTW General COnference was way sweet, we watched it in our church building, and they have it in english, so that is nice :) We went to FRankfurt last week, and met a lady in a shop who was from wisconsin, and she was a member, two oddities at the same time! I asked her how she feels about favre, not knowing if she liked football at all, and she said ''WE don't talk about that...'' I love wisconsinites, and AMericans :) Anyways, Tschüß! Love Elder Bentz aka Mooker

P.S. Does Melanie have any sisters?

Awesome about the Pack, I am looking forward to seeing how the Pack fair up against the VIKES, write me!!!!! Other than that stuff, not too much happened, General COnference is coming up, and that means, HUMP DAY, yeah, it is on thursday, I can't believe that it has already been a whole year, only one more to go,,,man, btw I got the package, thanks for the pics matt, and everybody's letters, I totally look like a goob in my plaque picture! well, tell everyone at home I say hi, and to go with the name Jessica! that is it for now!
