Mom! its your son! I'm mostly going to reply to Dad's email this week because I believe I replied to your last week, but I'll answer a few of our questions now! About the chinos, I cant remember what size the ones I'm wearing here are, but there probably 31x32 like most of the pants I wear. so if that is a possible size, that would be fine! And I would like a khaki/brownish pair and a black pair! Also, I have another pair of khaki ones that I'm pretty sure I left at home, if they are still at home, could you send those too? So all in all if you find those ones from home, I would possibly be receiving two khaki/brownish pairs and one black pair! Oh, actually if they have a conservative navy color, I would take that over the black. alright yeah that’s all. :) Awww I wish I could be watching American Idol with you guys! I heard there's no more Randy and there’s a new judge in place of him!? NO MORE RANDY JACKSON? Is that even legal? But oh cool, Salt Lake City auditions should be interesting! I'm gonna reply to Dad's email about my week and stuff so watch for that one! I love you! Byeeeeeeeeeeeee _______________________________________________________________________
Dad! and Ben and Sam and Mom!
Hey you guys! Sounds like things are going great in Flagstaff! Busy busy busy man. Basketball and lacrosse and W.L.Gore and Associates and driving everyone around until Ben gets his license, crazy! AND now you guys are celebrities with your picture in the newspaper! Flagstaff celebrities! Has anyone asked you for autographs? You guys are pretty much famous! :) No but that’s really cool though haha. At least you look pretty thug in your picture Dad.
And how the heck is it already my 19th birthday?! That's crazy! I've been on this earth for 19 years! And 0.5 of those years I have lived in the Philippines! That means for 1/38 of my life I have lived in Asia! What? Crazy.
So the transfer day got switched to Thursday for some reason, so it is no longer on my birthday. But that means I get to spend my birthday in my first area still! Yay! And yes I am most likely getting transferred. I officially find out tonight if I will be, but I'm pretty sure I will be. I'm a little bit nervous, a little bit excited, but I'm fine with whatever happens! Whatever it is it’s meant to be.
ahahah I totally understand the missionaries now that I am one. When an appointment falls through, called getting punted, we just say "hmm what members live in this area?" and go give them a quick visit! ahah and we always know the member that cooks the best.
Anyways, this week was just fine! We did quite well in our work this week, We had a lot of appointments, and the ones we were punted from ended well because we were able to go to other people so it all worked out yay!
We have a group of three investigators that we are focusing on lately. They are the cousins of a member, three young women, 13,15 and 17, and they are great! They are super interested and love to ask questions and have them answered aha. They’ve come to church 3 times now, so they are really looking like great baptismal candidates. We're excited!
Other than that, everything is pretty normal. Tonight, we have a family home evening at the famous Nanay’s s house, the 85 year old feisty grandma, who is by far the best cook in our area, and I think they are planning on celebrating my birthday! They already gave me a gift (which I opened early) of a sweet new journal! So tonight should be fun. This week, before transfer day, I'll most likely spend a lot of time packing and cleaning and saying bye to members and investigators that I've gotten close to, but that’s really all, not much work will be done before Thursday. There’s never much work on a transfer week.
Anyways, I'll send some pictures now!
I love you guys, and miss you all a ton!
