I have seen Sam. (Sam Biggs was Jarom's roommate at BYU. He entered the MTC on Wednesday, the last of the 4 to serve this summer.) I saw him like 2 hours ago. He cut his chin with a razor because he is used to an electric one. I think it is stinking hilarious because he said he hated blades.

So one thing that I found interesting this week... is you can tell who has seen the darker side of the world. There are about 5 of us in my district that have had this happen. There is just a certain feel about their testimonies and how they testify. You can sense the urgency in their voices when they talk about sharing the gospel. This is actually scary stuff. This is actually life or death. This is eternal damnation or eternal life. It is going to be a shock to those who have not seen how actually terrible this world is. But that is the great thing. Then they realize how important it is that people need the light of Christ. Then they realize the blessings this gospel has brought to their lives.
Roger Choro is going a great job leading the district. Roger Choro and I have grown really close these past few weeks. We were told to share some testimonies to our companions about how the gospel has blessed our lives. Roger Choro and I were crying because we know the pains of the world and how much this gospel blesses our lives.

(Jarom's Mom, here. I like to send silly socks to my daughter and her companions. I thought it would be fun to see what Jarom's roommates would do if I sent them silly socks. I bribed them actually. If they sent me a picture with all of them in their socks, I would reward them with hot fries. I am pleased to share with the world, Jarom and his roomies in silly socks!)
