“Yet it is not our part to master all the tides of the world, but to do what is in us for the succor of those years wherein we are set, uprooting the evil in the fields that we know, so that those who live after may have clean earth to till. What weather they shall have is not ours to rule.” Lord Of The Rings, J.R.R. Tolkein

Glad that Dolly is moving forward. Blythe has been filling me in on all of the news, and it sounds like you guys are cutting it pretty close! But everything will come together. It always does! 
I'm so excited for the Temple Celebration! That is going to be so cool for you guys to participate! Performing for the Prophet would be so exciting. Glad Cierra took Ginja to sweethearts! That would be one heck of a date. Oh how I miss Parks and Recreation.... That show.... I miss Ron Swanson with all of my heart... I can't even tell you.... 
I was able to find Josh's call video on the family website! It was so sweet! It is so cool to see that finally happen.  All of us have been talking about missions since we were kids, and now it is finally happening! I am so excited for Josh! I talked with a Sister yesterday who said that her cousin served in Argentina (or something like that) and that they were so sweaty all the time that they had to shower pretty much 2-3 times a day! Tell him to prepare himself! Glad that Jenni Theobald is willing to help out our family so much. God bless their family. My missionary stuff from Missionary Mall is holding up fine;) 
The work is alright! We just picked up a ward in Barnwell, and based on what we saw at church on Sunday, we are extremely excited to be working with them. These are members who are extremely excited to do missionary work (which is a rare thing in Canada). 
I got the package from You, as well as Aunt Jen and the McIver clan! Thanks to everyone! It made my day! It felt like Christmas again;D Elder Reid and I play with the bounce thingy that Aunt Jen sent us all the time, and I'll soon figure out how to use the USB recorder gadget. Also, thanks to Mama McIver! That package was awesome and the cards were freaking sweet! I love how on Ginja's it said "Dinner's ready". I laughed my butt off and enjoyed telling that story to Elder Reid;) If you don't know the story, ask Alec. It's hilarious. Also, thanks to Evelyn Jensen!!! She's so awesome! She signs all of the boxes and packages that come through the post office! It's so awesome to read her little notes! Mom, you should go visit her and tell her thank you for me! I pray for the house every night still! I hope that it will sell soon, but Heavenly Father will take care of us. No worries. That would be awesome if Michael's brother would buy it! He's such a good guy! Everyone in the neighborhood would love him! So happy for Jordan! What a girl! Can't wait for her to find all of the happiness she's ever wanted! So awesome!

Nothing really new is happening here. There is a big hooplah up here about Isis, though. Apparently they threatened to attack Edmonton mall, so Canadians are freaking out about that. As you can imagine, sales at the Edmonton mall are plummeting... lol. Other than that, the only thing I really want to share this week is a little blurb for member missionary work. PLEASE, especially my family, make sure that you are doing missionary work. It is NOT the responsibility of the full-time missionaries to find people to teach. The missionaries are called in as "specialists" (that's how Bruce R. McConkie tries to explain) to assist the members in their missionary work. One of the biggest stumbling blocks to the entire missionary venture of Christ's church is that the members are comfortable just watching the missionaries do all of the missionary work. That's ridiculous! Look for opportunities to give missionaries referrals! Look for opportunities to represent Christ and talk to people that you have never met before! About the gospel! Don't be afraid to share! I promise that God will bless you if you step out of your comfort zones and love those around you.
I love you all!
-Elder Warenski
