We only have an hour here at the library to e-mail, but I can email from my iPad later when we go to the stake center, so don't be upset if you don't get a larger email for a little bit, it'll come, I promise, wouldn't leave you hanging like that :)
Send millions of letters and packages to:
3724 1/2 6th St.
East Los Angeles, CA 90023
that's the address to my apartment.
Again, thanks for the Lucky Charms, I bought some at the store last week and already ate them all, so thanks for restocking the supply!
"Whoa, you look just like Justin Bieber, man. Keep doing that 'shoot' (didn't say shoot) and you'll be the best, man." -- Direct line from an investigator yesterday, he came out of his room and saw Elder Buchanan and that's what came out of his mouth. We didn't count it as a lesson, though. Because he was drunk off of his skunk. We asked him to say a prayer, Elder Ingram had to end it, that's how bad it was. Oh well.
This week was a better week for me, I'm still growing, I'm still adjusting, but I know that I'm going to be just fine.
You asked me what stuff to send in the first care package... I have one major need, and you're not going to like it. I forgot the charger to my camera battery, sorry about that. I'm not sure where it is, either, maybe in one of the top two drawers in my dresser? It's blue and the make is Canon. If you can't find it, just steal Wyatt's, we have the same camera and I'm assuming that he won't be using that as often because he has the camera on his iPhone, now. Other things that I'll need,...a Spanish preach my gospel (I only packed my English one), those are like $4 (for the small ones, which is what I'd like) at Deseret Book. I've been sharing with Elder Ingram.
Thanks for the St. Patrick's Day Lucky Charms, again, that was a great surprise to receive this morning!
This week definitely was a lot better for me, I'm beginning to enjoy
things, I'm trying to anyway. It's hard work, it's easy to get
discouraged, but it's a learning process that I'm beginning to
embrace. It's not supposed to be easy, I'm beginning to accept that. I
still miss home, I still miss Kalli, but as I said last week, I'm
going to be alright. I mentioned that it was a learning process, it's
a large learning process. There is a lot that I don't know about the
gospel, being home for nine months without speaking very much Spanish didn't help, either. I just need to be patient with myself and know that it'll all come in due time. I need to learn how to get lost in
the work, too. I know I have the potential to be a great missionary,
it's up to me to reach that potential. Wyatt sent me an e-mail and one
of his bullet points was "attitude", something I know hasn't
benefitted me at all. I need to be more excited for this work, I can
feel that coming along. I'll be alright.
I am going to need those things that I mentioned in the other email,
the battery charger for my camera especially, just slipped my mind.
I've been skeptical about when to pull out my camera, too. Sorry about that. Also, if it's possible, it's not a necessity, but it'd be
nice... Can you mail me my basketball shoes? We play on Prep Day and I almost gave myself blisters last week playing in my vans. I don't play every week, so it's not a necessity, if that's too much, that's okay,
just send me candy instead, that's just as good. :) Actually, don't
even worry about them, I'll be playing soccer instead of basketball
when I get to Spain. Never mind!
You told me to write 10 bad, good, and things that just don't matter
last week, that's tough! I told you I'd think about them during the
week and get back to you this week. I came back with three bad
things.... 1. Menudo (cow stomach) 2. Lengua (cow tongue) and I can't
remember the third, sorry, again.
Weekly could you let me know how much is in my MACU account, like you did last year? That'd help me out a lot.
I'll be in a trio for the rest of this transfer, then I have no idea
what will happen after that. The transfer is over in April, mid way
through the month I believe. And I'm only going to check my messages on Mondays, that's the ways it is supposed to be.
I love you, Mom. I'll talk to you soon.
