Well, everyone and anyone. Thank you for the Birthday wishes. I'm sorry that this email may be a little short today. I was busy getting caught up on pictures. I love pictures and was sad that I wasn't able to send them before, so there they all are!!!!! Wooo Hooo!
This week was awesome. Like awesome awesome! We gave a huge challenge to the zone. Actually, 2 challenges.
1. The companionship with the most contacts at the end of the week gets acai paid by the zone leaders. We didn't tell them how hard that would be because Elder Jake and I are both very competitive, and we are not willing to lose. hahaha. But, they responded well. We set a mission record. WE HAD 342 CONTACTS this week. That was INSANE! haha. It was by far a new record. One of the other duplas had 273, that is very high. It was awesome. We won.
2. The other was for the zone to hit 1500 contacts. We have 10 companionships and that's a 150 average. That's pretty high. If they did, the zone leaders would throw a pancake party before the next zone meeting. yeah. pancakes. I love pancakes. haha AND WE DID IT!!!!!!!!!!!!! We had 1,505 contacts as a zone. It was awesome.
and it was my birthday. Our RC, Marcia, our investigator, Bel, and Angela, and Bel's family threw me a little party. It was fun. They had cake, Pave (a delicious Brazilian dessert that I will make and eat forever and get fat again.) And juice. They are so cool. It was a pleasing day and ti was way fun.
I love you all and hope you have a fantastic week!!!!! I can't wait to see you on Mother's day!!!
Love, Elder Scott JACKSON Taylor

It doesn't look very long, but looks are definitely deceiving!!
