Two Weeks Worth

     I'm doing so well, I can't wait for you to get my letter I sent.  It has this crazy experience this past week, it was weird and scary, but so cool.
     I'm tired I feel like I am having lack of sleep, but I do well hiding my yawns in a lesson. Yes, keep sending me emails, I look at them from time to time, and it keeps me going.  I miss Blair, but I'll see her before I know it.
    Everything is going smooth and lessons are going well, I'm learning more than I ever would back home.  Its crazy, I hope you and grandma and everyone are doing well.  I pray every night for it.
   So far me being tired not  from lack of sleep, I crash hard here; it just feels like not enough. I  haven't had any really cool experiences to speak of.  I got to bury a little dog for an investigator. She is  from New York and has the accent' she has a mouth on her; but its so funny hearing her talk.
     The weather was so weird here, first it was 75, then it started to fog up with dust, and then it rained mud--real mud, then it snowed for 2 days. Now it's hot again.
 Did you hear the talk about not being on your tablet and phones in church? As soon as I heard that I started to laugh, thinking about you and Kayla in sacrament playing on them and your phones in church.
   The ward mission leaders are great. So far the Bantas, who are  in the Academy Park Ward, tried setting Elder Sturgell up with a lady friend.  I mean he goes home in 4 months, but still he is a missionary, we cant have that!  But, we meet almost daily with most of them. There is a guy here that kind of looks like Greg Purdue.  He was the high councilmen over missionary work.  But, now there is a new one.
 I don't know if I want to still move here or not.  I want my kids to grow up around a lot of members, but its different here.  Maybe, we will see what happens.  Yeah, the area is very small and we are on the same streets everyday, and it gets to be kind of boring being in such a small area.

Things are great, I sent you a letter with an experience I had and it is really cool. So far we have 13 investigators and 8 on date for baptism, I'm excited, I love the work.
I did eat dinner at the Desommer's, she was really cool. She talked about home and she was excited that I knew where Medina was.
The pillow is great and no, I didn't get bedding; but the place where I'm staying already has everything I need. Sister Heaten sent you a letter the other day, she is a great lady, I love her she is quirky, she even makes us breakfast and it is so good.
I might be losing weight, it doesn't look like it from this end.  I run every morning and the Elders Quorum  president takes us boxing in the morning sometimes.  He was the best in the state and best in the region. He is really cool and owns 3 nationwide businesses, I don't know what they are called though.
So far I haven't really had a favorite lesson. We lost a guy we were teaching, but gained 4 new people. It's great they are growing so fast.  We will be having a few baptisms this next few weeks .

So far I'm being taken care of ,so I'm good on that.  Is there any news on Kenzie? Oh and I am emailing Erin Jackson now too. She is doing well, she is still serving her mission.

The lessons are easy, the ward's are great, they treat me like I've been there for a long time; very loving and great.   We  didn't get our aura looked with the Tongan missionaries on our personal day like I thought we would, so I don't really know what its like.  How was grandma doing, if she has left already ?
