April 8, 2013---Las Vegas West Mission

Good morning, San Francisco!! 

              So I am leaving today at 5.  I will be going to the Sand Stone stake, and I will no longer have to worry about being a zone leader.  I will be training, and will be a district leader, which is what I wanted.  I will be sad to leave here.  I will pick up my greenie today, so that should be cool.  I am excited.  I will have to bring him emailing tomorrow, so I will let you know more about him tomorrow.
Doing good besides that.

So the other elder is looking at a cheaper place to live.  I am not sure how much.  We have found a few places that look nice, but i am not sure.  He might want to live at a place that is like $750/semester. and I don't think I will go there with him.  I think I would go to the Ridges if that is the case.  I really did like the Ridges, so we will see what he wants to do.  I am not going to live in a dump, haha.  

Can you check on registration for classes and stuff like that?  And make sure i am ready to sign up and all that good stuff?  I am really excited about going off to school, again, haha.  Sorry Mom, nothing personal.  But, I love you still.

Yeah, it is right next to my stake I am in now.  So not too bad, and I will be a district leader again, which will be cool, because last time I was not able to really give trainings, but now I can.  

Ok, so my new comp is Elder Koluse.  He is from Tonga, and is just learning the language.  Pretty cool, though.  He is a really good guy and really wants to work hard.  He is almost a year older then me.

April 1, 2013--Las Vegas West Mission

Dear family, haha, I know I suck at writing.  I am not good at it, but I will tell you all the stories in about 4 months.  Give or take, haha.  That is so weird to be able to say now.  I love it.  I really do.

So transfers are coming up next week, so that should be interesting to see how that works out.  I am like 99 percent sure that I am leaving the area, and I will finally no longer be a zone leader, but I will train a new missionary.  So that will be cool.  I am hoping to be on bike so I can keep losing weight.  I am 20 pounds down now.  I am 5 pounds under what I came out at.  I am 245 so that is not too bad.  We are on the Slim Fast diet.  I was thinking about not telling you and just coming home at 230, haha.  That is my goal.  It is really not too much out of the question, so wee will see what happens.  I think I can do it.  I was at 265.

Me and my comp are doing good.  I am about to do something about housing, mom.  Can you help me out by looking at the school stuff and finding out the deadlines for stuff and letting me know?  I would really love you even more for that.  So please, mommy.  Love you. 

It is weird that the mission is winding down.  So the missionaries in the ward now........are they any good?  Are they cool?  Do y'all know them well at all?

Hey sorry Mom.  I got the package.  Thank you, so much.  It is awesome.  We are having an activity today and we are eating that and gumbo.  Weird mix, but oh well.  It should be good.  Thanks so much, and the gumbo is what the charges are on the card.  

Hey, so I had some basketball shoes rip today, and I was wondering if  could buy some new ones?

Mommy, you are the best.

March 25, 2013--Las Vegas West Mission

Hey, how much money do I have?  I need to know for housing to see what I want to do.  Me and Elder Driggs are rooming together and we are talking right now about what we are doing, but I need to know what the money situation is.  

Hey, so that is really cool that you are in Utah and not coming to visit me, haha.  That's ok.  I will be home soon anyway, so don't worry about it.  I am not jealous, haha.  

I love y'all.  This week is realy good.  We had a lot of fun and are awesome.  

Well, I am the worst son ever.

March 18, 2013--Las Vegas West Mission

Good morning, family!  This week is good.  Again, I am terrible at writing.  I am sorry, but it is not always my fault.  But, kinda is, haha.  Oh well, yeah, it is actually, but sorry.  Love you so much.

Yeah, I knew a lot of Wadworth's, and a few Bleaks there in Panaca. One was one of the ward mission leaders.  Kinda cool.

That is really cool that Evan got his mission call.  I am excited for him.  I bet he is so pumped.  I wish I could have gone at 18.  I would be home and engaged now, haha.  

How can you be at a car show and not get a picture of a car?  That makes no sense at all, haha.  Oh well.   

We are really doing good.  I was looking at the stats from the zone and since I got here the stats in the zone have more then doubled, which is exciting.  They are doing really good work and we have been able to see the difference in the work as they have worked harder.  

Love Y'all.

March 11, 2013--Las Vegas West Mission

Hey, so this has been another good week.  I am loving the mission and really having a lot of fun.  We are doing good and we are seeing some exciting things happen in the area.  We are loving the ward.  This week we got to go to a symphony for the Zion's Youth Symphony.  It was really cool.  I really enjoyed it.  We had some time to see President Nieder and a lot of the missionaries that I knew on the other side of Vegas.  It was really cool.  I loved every minute of it.

Andrea, what about Mrs. ------?

Can you call them back?  (the Elders)

Hey family.  This week has been great.  We are still together and we are working hard.  We have found a few new investigators and so it has been great.  I really love the zone.  It is really cool to have the zone together and working hard.

I am hoping I will be able to train one day, haha.  I am tired of being a zl (zone leader).  I want to train a new missionary.  It will be new and fun, I think.  Just because I think that, it is going to suck when it happens, haha.  So Sister Black made me take a picture just for you, Mom, haha.  She said you commented on the blog, so she was going to put that one up there for you.  And so, I guess, she did, haha.  You are a stalker, haha, but it is ok.  I forgive you.  I am so happy that everyone is doing good at home.  I need --- to do better now.  He needs to go on a mission.  I am so grateful for my mission.  It is awesome.  It really is the best.  

Well, I love y'all and thank you so much.

Good morning!  Thanks so much for everything.  That is amazing that Miss ----------- is going to take the lessons.  That is awesome.   She is such a great lady.  She was so nice to me.  I hope everything goes good with that.  I am going to write that note in hand-writing, haha.  I don't want to email that.  I will send it tomorrow.  That is great to hear, though.  Let me know as soon as you know what is going on with that.  Would be awesome.

So, transfers.  We are staying together with my comp, which is awesome.  I am excited to do that. (this last period was actually there!!  I didn't add it!  :)  I am so excited to see everyone on Mother's Day.  It will be good. 

I love y'all.
