Ok two things I wanna clarify first of all. 1.) If you want to contact me do not respond to this email cause i wont get it. Send me a message on dearelder.com or send me a hand written message. 2.) I wont be able to attatch any pictures until I actually get to Georgia.
Anyways this week has been really good. 4th of July was super awesome here. We had a program about patriotism and these two missionaries played fiddles and there was a video thing. I dunno it was cool. Then we got to go out and watch the BYU fireworks which were crazy awesome. My companion and roomies are super awesome. Elder Gunnerson (my comp) and I have been getting a lot better at teaching together and he is becoming more commited to the work. Last night we built a pretty killin' fort in our room. My other roomies are Elder Hamer and Harding and were all like best buds. The sister missionaries in my district are pretty cool too I guess. Oh yeah I was also made Zone Leader like a week ago so it's been fun getting to know all the new elders and all the cool people in my zone. My branch president is really awesome too he brings the spirit to everything he does but he's also just a goofy guy. Oh my teacher who was in Ryan's MTC zone was a sister that's why she is home already and her name is Sister Smith. I guess she was sick like the whole time she was here though. We had a member of the seventy speak to us a week ago named Yoshihito Kukuchi. It was seriouly one the most powerful talks I've ever heard. Really motivated me to follow the commandments and rules with exact obedience. Another awesome thing here is this tree that smells like cream soda. Like it sounds weird but it seriously smells just like cream soda and nobody knows why. I was bummed to hear Steve Nash is going to the Lakers. I mean the Lakers are pretty lame. But Idk I guess it makes sense and I'm just happy we got Goran Dragic back. GORAN! Oh and yes mom the key on my dresser is to the Meiers. Since I've been here I've seen Aaron Blake, Jordan Taylor, Jonathan Ricks, and Cayden Tattersal. Jordan told me to say hi to Ryan for him and asked how he was doing. Cayden seemed to be doing alright I think he just needs time to get used to the schedule change and the language. Seriously, I'm so glad i'm speaking english. I mean the MTC is cool but I really can't wait to get to Georgia. Been hearing some crazy stories about the South so I'm just stoked to get down there and take in the people and culture. I've only played piano for Sunday meetings but I'm planning on playing more today and auditioning with a couple sister missionaries for a special musical number.
I've really come to know that this is where I'm supposed to be and I honestly am just having a blast here. Hope all is going well for each of you at home. Give Sam some cereal for me... not that he deserves it that little mutt. Hope all my AMC homies are still being bombastic. Keep selling stubs cards!... haha jk stubs are lame. Oh and mom I'm not sure about those emails that worked it sounds like averie's (averieclare) worked but idk about berenice's. so um ya. Love you all. Bye bye!
