4th of July!
Well hey ma familia . . . How are you guys?? It was great to hear from you guys! I dont have time to reply to you all individually this week :/ but I read through all your emails and they were great! I can't believe you are going to Hawaii Jamie!!?!?!?!?! Soo nuts! You are one lucky duck . . I am a little jealous . . . But its good out here!
Hmmm welll this week was alright! It was the 4th of July soo that was good! We went down to Salt Lake and went to a park for Mission Conference and just ate a bunch of food and played sports. There are a bunch of polys (Polynesians) in our mission and I was the only white kid playing volleyball with them! It was sweet :) they are good ha ha so its fun to play with them.
Oh and that morning we met our Mission President. It was cool . . Him, his wife, the APs, and our zone leaders were all crammed into our tiny apartment thing. . .It was weird . . and they didnt seem like they wanted to be there . . The whole thing was a little weird and seemed sorta unnecessary, but it was nice to meet him. He is a very loving man and I am glad he is my mission president!
Well what else . . .
We have been teaching a little more, and mostly still trying to find people . . I wish the wards would start helping more . . but its alright, we just keep trying to get them involved and stuff. it'll keep getting better.
OH! A crazy connection was made yesterday! I met a Brother Smith at one of the wards yesterday and guess who his brother is?!?! Everett Smith from the Louisville Ward!!!!!! It was awesome :) He was my young mens leader for a while and stuff . . So that was cool :) And Yeah this lady that was a little crazy asked us for our parents numbers and called you guys to tell you we are doing well . . ha ha she was a little nuts, but she insisted on calling you guys so yeah . .
Well Not too much else has happened. A lot of new rules in the new mission . . Like no caffeine (good thing I stopped drinking it and decided not to for these 2 years before I left.) and only Motab and church hymns . And nightly call ins instead of weekly . . and just different stuff all around .. It will take some getting used to but its all good.
I love you all and miss you too! Hope you guys had a wonderful 4th!
God lives and loves us. Jesus Christ is our Savior and Redeemer.
The church is true.
