Hey Mom!

      It sounds like you and everyone is doing great! That makes me happy! I couldn't write yesterday cuz there was a holiday so don't worry I'm still alive haha
I'll try writing a little bit about my week but it won't be long cuz I have a list of 20 to write back haha idk Why there's so much.

      On Tuesday we had a district meeting like we usually do, but it was on the spirit and how we feel the spirit and how to help others feel it. It was a really good lesson. I learned a lot, like I am everyday. Being on a mission really expands your mind with knowledge of the gospel so that's pretty good. We had splits with the Assistants to the President so I left my area and learned from him. His name is Elder Naylor he has 2 months left of his mission. I had a talk in Sacrament about Christ-like attributes this last Sunday, it went alright. We had zone meeting today and learned about our heavenly father and the importance of making sure they know who he really is. Cuz there's so many different religious beliefs down here. ALOT of Hindus, the population is half Black and half Indian.

      But thanks for the pics! That's pretty awesome that Jake and Sara had their baby! I like the name too! Tell him congrats!! And I didn't get any pics of the renuion. Too bad I missed it.. haha.

               Mom: OK I sent the reunion pics for ya!
