Dear Family and Friends,
I have tried hard to focus on my present area that I am sad to be leaving. Sister Johnson and I set some high goals for this transfer. They didn't come to fruition like we had hoped. Sister Johnson and her trainee will be working with a few investigators that we have in our ares. We both think she should be training a missionary from Asia as all the asian sisters are going home and we need more in this area as Asians are awesome!
Oh we went to the city today to the Smithsonian museum of natural history. I will send pictures. It was nice but to be honest I was just thinking about all the packing I have to do still and the cleaning too... Maybe when we come and visit we can really visit and enjoy ourselves but it's hard to do that with all these responsibilities on
my mind. I have told president that I am coming to visit with you at the end of my mission. So now we have to come back, president really wants to meet you.
I learned that my new apartment isn't as nice as this one, laundry costs $20 a month.:/ But there is a bigger gym so I don't have to wait for the treadmill. I have been jogging almost every morning for 10 mins or more. I will be happy to double that. Sister Johnson really has taught me a lot about health and I am going to do my best to apply it in every aspect of my life now ie eating healthier, more salads and Isagenix will really help in the mornings. I have really come to enjoy spinach, especially cooked with a little bit (or a lot) of cheese melted on it. :)

I am sad that I missed birthday week. (Lani's bday is in Valentines day and her brothers are three days both sides of hers. Her brother Hyrum turned 12 and was ordained to the Aaronic priesthood. She was sad to miss this family event. We are also Star Wars fans we celebrate the May the 4th be with your day and... Lani's brothers celebrated their special days with a Star Wars themed cake. and had this to say:). I think for our next birthday we should have a Star Wars birthday party again :) It so great that Hyrum is growing up to be such a great leader, I'm hardly going to recognize any of my boys when I get home.... Give Dalin and Hyrum birthday hugs from me Sorry I didn't send anything for them, I will make up next year.
Lani's response to us retiring our "Bascom Bus" Yay new car to drive when I get home!. Loved to hear about the auto starter! It will be nice for November mornings when I get home ;) I'm sure you are loving it. I will send you pictures when I get my new car, I am going to be driving 24/7 now as new sisters have to wait 2 transfers I think before they can drive....
Wow! I just become more and more awed by this experience that I am soon to have with these new sisters. I really want to stay longer here but when I thought about it last night I do feel like I still have more work to do on Temple Square. I feel I have responsibilities there and roles to fulfill i.e. I still have people to touch there, companions that need me, fellow sisters that need me. I have been loving my time in Washington, but I know that I have to go back to Utah in May for a reason.
Enjoy the pictures Sister Johnson is sending.
Love Sister Bascom
