Summer's coming early

Hey Family!
Hope you guys had a good week! Besides the Utah game that is... ugh. And congrats mom for doing the temple hike!! That is awesome and the picture you send look really cool! Same with the mountain hikes! Oh how I love Utah’s mountains.
 Anyways yesterday we had a baptism, Alessandra! She was a reference of a member, and a single mom of 1 that lives with her Stepdad and mom who go to another church. She had a strong desire to be baptized and I know she will be a great member. We also are teaching an 18-year-old boy that we found while looking for a less active member. His name is Marcione and he accepted a date to be baptized the 23rd. He has read parts of the Book of Mormon and liked it! I am really excited for him. We also have Maria, she is a little old lady that is confined to bed because she is sick. She talked with her brother (a member) and said she wanted to be baptized. We went over there and taught an awesome lesson, and she really has a desire to be baptized in our church. It will be a bit difficult because she can´t walk, but everything will work out. The Lord will provide a way. 
Things are going pretty well, I think the next few weeks should be pretty good, as I am getting a better feel about how to do things, it is all through members. And with their help lots of great things will happen! We had an awesome training with president last week because I am training. It really showed how important the Book of Mormon is to our church and to missionary work. It is everything! Besides that not a whole lot is happening... Summer is returning early, these past few days must have been in the low 100s. It is killing my poor comp, haha but everyone gets used to it after a while, more or less. 
Oh I had a dream so you guys need to do this. That you guys built second floor on the barn/garage with 2 bedrooms, bathroom, kitchette and living room. Wouldn´t that be cool! (Also lots of money I know.) haha But I won´t complain if you decide to do that and rent it out to me.... hahahahaha. Anyways how are things going, school and everything? How is the weather over there? I got a bunch of news articles from you guys Friday and some other letters from people. Thank you everyone for the letters and emails! I think that is about it for this week! Love you all and wish you a great week. Make you dreams and wishes high!
With tons of love, Elder Connor Ottosen
