Elder Thomas and I have really gotten along with Elder Kramer, and Elder Clark. Elder Kramer is from New Jersey and he is one of the nicest kids I have met. He's a really good guy. Elder Clark on the other hand is the one I like to goof off with. He is from Boise and me and him get along super well. He is really good at basketball. He is also a really good guy. Elder Thomas and I really like to study with them cause, they are really fun to study with. I don't know if you remember Austin Johnson from Centerville, but his girlfriend is in my class. I know her name, i just can't spell it because its super weird. It's like German or something. Very complicated last name.
It was so good to see some of my friends come in this week. I got to see Elder parry as I was exercising, and I'm so glad I got to see him. He looked so excited and so ready, and I was super happy for him. Me and him live in the same building so I get to see him almost everyday which is really good. I'm just glad he doesn't live with the Russians on the bottom floor, cause the other day they where doing some Russian chant, and it was kind of scary haha! I also saw Elder McCann on Sunday. It took me so long to find him cause he blends in with every kid here. He looked happy and ready to serve as well. I found out that Elder Freestone is getting to Madagascar the same day Ryan leaves, so they might get to see each other, which would be really cool.
I really enjoyed the package you gave me. I ate pretty much all the pistachios already but, I really haven't even made a dent yet on the other stuff. I also liked the pictures you sent me but, there is one problem. Where is Ryan in those pics? I'm not trying to get mad at you its just that I would really like some pictures of me him and the entire fam in it if that's alright.
So i just got back from doing my laundry and I went to go get my hangers and someone stole my hangers so I am hanger-less. That's probably the most exciting thing that has happened this week, and it happened twenty minutes ago, haha.
One of the Elders in our district has been struggling lately. I feel bad because his companion is kind of ignoring him so that's not helping him at all. But me, Elder Thomas, Elder Kramer, Elder Clark, and Elder Heirer, have been helping him out. I love that kid so much and I love being able to help him out.
The one thing I have really tried to work on this week is trying to be more obedient. I can't remember where I was reading but it said obedience brings blessings, but exact obedience brings miracles. I have been trying to be exactly obedient, but its really hard. Its real easy to get off task here but I want to receive those blessings not only for me, but for all y'all as well. I challenge you guys to try and be more obedient. As I try to be more obedient I have felt an armor come around me, and the armor is protecting me from temptation and sin, and I get tempted to goof around a lot. So I want all y'all to try that it out. It has helped me out a lot and I know for some of you back home it would really help you out as well. I know these things to be true. I have seen the blessings come to me in the past week. I want all y'all to receive the same blessings I have gotten.
That's all I have this week. Sorry again if this letter doesn't make sense. I'm already forgetting English haha! I love all y'all and I will talk to you next week!
