Elders Samar, me, Lasay, and Valdez.
Ramon is a nice place. I'm slowly learning the area and relizing that I know a little Tagalog. I just today got a package from Grandpa Fred. A whole box of Cromers popcorn and peanuts. You cant imagine how excited I was to get that. I dont know how im gunna eat it all, though. Mosiah 20:11 ends with "...and like dragons did they fight." I think we should all go to bed at the end of the day and ask ourselves, "Did i fight like a Dragon today?" Whatever it is you do, you need, you love, or you believe, fight for it like a dragon.
I love you all, and i know you can do it, whatever it is.
Dad, do you remember when you told be about the time you saw the "Church of God - Zillah" in Washinton? I often think about that, as unimportant as it may seem, it reminds me that sometimes as a religion you just have to laugh at yourself. I love you and mom for the things youve taught me and the knowledge you've given me.
Elder Tadena, after surgery to repair his shattered leg when he was hit by a motorcycle. Did I mention I got to spend the night in the hospital?
Sorry I'm a little short on time today...
Me with a power line, safely hung out of the reach of children under 3.
We met this guy dancing in the street, so I joined in with my awesome moves.
