I have a whole bunch of stuff to say anda ton of stuff to reply too so sorry if I don’t go into a whole lot of details. If you guys could email me via dear elder on Fridays because I receive the letters from you the following day. When you send them on Sunday I get them about 4ish when I have 2 hours left of pday so I don’t have a lot of time to think about what to reply cuz I always make an outline.I’ll just address randomly everything I think I need too.
Mom, could you send me some more shirts? I think I’m shrinking them and I’m getting bigger, honestly, not fatter though. BTW Dad the food is alright, it’s pretty much the leftovers from the Cannon Center. I’m trying to eat healthy and I’m staying pretty fit. Are my new glasses/contacts in? If you could send those to me that would be great. Sorry for all the o yeahs. Tasha told me haha. My slip on no lace shoes hurt really bad so I never wear them. Should I keep trying to break them in or do you think I can still do something with missionary mall. Mom, thanks so much for writing all those addresses in my book. I didn’t realize that you did that until I finally cracked it open. I’m thinking about printing and sending yall some pics, is it okay to send SD cards via mail? I can if you want me to.
I see Clark and Cambria pretty much every day. That’s pretty cool. I talked with both of them for a good amount of time. Sunday nights are church video night after the fireside. I sat next to Clark and we pretty much talked the whole time.
The language is coming well. Don’t worry Dad. I’ve started doing the John Groberg thing w/my 2 BOM’s side by side and if I don’t know a word I write it down in a little notebook I carry around with me. I also carry around a little notebook and I write down answers to prayers or powerful inspiration that strikes me deeply. I keep thinking about Joseph Smith when he said “I knew it and I knew that God knew it.: I love that it’s so powerful.
That cracked me up about Josh and the Court of Honor. How’d Megan do at solo and ensemble? Sounds like Anna is doing well in basketball, tell her what Michael Jordan did at first and what he changed when we started winning championships. Kiss the Celica good-bye for me will you? I hear Josh is getting his license soon….
I have been writing in my journal everyday since I got here. Sometimes I have a hard time figuring out what to write cuz sometimes the days feel the same. I finished the Greatest Salesman book. I read it 3 times a day. I think you know what I mean by that. IDK if Tasha told yall but I read the BOM everyday til you feel the spirit and just a little bit longer, family and personal that’s the minimum.
I saw Brother Bott yesterday and he remembered me! Dad, don’t worry I’m working hard and I’m not distracted, time is of the essence, it’s the Lord’s time and I try to use every bit of it.
I have heard about the Heap kid from Washington. One of my friends knows him and his family. He may not go on a mission cuz he’s “NFL material.” I’ll look out for Mike Barrow when he comes. I’m most likely going to see him.
Overall, it’s been good. We got to practice contacting with a new district that got here and I played a drunk Mexican guy in the park. It was fun. We’re teaching each other all the time, it’s cool. You may delete whatever you feel you need to but I’m almost out of time. I’ve been carrying my camera around with me so I’m getting lots of pics. Missionary scripture:Alma 29:9-10…well I gotta go. Love you guys and thanks for your support. I miss you all!
