I chatted with Mason via email for a few minutes today.  He is doing well and working hard for the last few weeks of his mission.

He likes his companion and they are preparing several people for baptism with the hopes that some of the will be scheduled for the Saturday that Quinci and I are in Mexico with Elder Millar.

Quinci and I will be going down to pick him up on September 14th and will be returning home with him the next Monday, September 19th.

Elder Mason Millar will be speaking in church on Sunday September 25th at 9am at the Murray North Stake Center located at 5200 S Glendon St (700 W), Murray, Utah 84123.

All that would like to attend are welcome and we would love to see you at our home following the meeting to visit with Mason.

Thanks for all your love and support for these 2 years.

Mason's Dad, BJ

Just a little thing for the blog!! 

So I know it has been a while since I have written something for the blog, But I just want you to all know that I am still alive, and breathing!!!

I just wanted to write a little something today:)

So as missionaries we are always focused on teaching people and helping them to learn more about their Heavenly Father, and how much he loves them, and that He has a plan for them, but so often we just get into a rhythm of saying the same thing and using the same scriptures over and over and over. Something that I have learned here as I have been teaching over the last 22 months is the importance of a testimony!! 

What is a Testimony? A testimony is the knowledge that someone has about a truth. It can be as simple as " I know that God loves me" and it can be as complicated as a 4 page paper. It is different for everyone, and everyone receives them in different ways. 

The importance of a testimony is not only to have one though. It is something that you have, and that by sharing it with others can drastically change their lives!!! As missionaries we see it all the time as we meet new people and help to to build theirs. I have always been asked by missionaries why I don't teach with lots of scriptures, and I have always said I have found more joy and success by sharing with them MY testimony and then watching them as they feel the spirit and start looking for themselves!!! It is such an incredible thing to see, and it saddens me to think that it is coming to a close in 7 short weeks!!! 

Take the time to share you testimony, It can be done through a Text, Conversation, Actions, and Just by being an example!!! 

Find the joy of sharing your Testimony!!!


Elder Mason Millar  

I kind of put together a BBQ for the elders in my zone today!!! It was Pretty Epic!!!

A SPECIAL REQUEST. . . .Name that Puppy

Dear Friends and Family,

We are requesting some "creative" input and help for Mason as he begins his transition home from mission life to "puppy owner" life.

Her picture is below and she is adorable.

What we are asking is for help coming up with a cute and appropriate name.

Please forward all of you suggestions to , and I will pass them on to Mason.

Thanks for your help and have fun with this project.

Description on the photos. 

The baptism was an investigator that I was teaching in one of my old area, and asked me to baptize him!!! That was a really cool experience. 

The Mountain pictures was where we went to eat the other day with the members. It was very pretty, and we are planning on going back in a few weeks to hike it more!°!! 

Life is good here in the mission, My comp is getting ready to leave in three weeks, and is very excited!!! The work is going, and all is well!!!
