Hey everyone I hope you guys are doing great! Ellery happy birthday! I can't believe you'll be turning twelve this week. In no time you'll be serving a mission. That's crazy.
It's funny you mentioned the hair, because I've gotten used to it by now. President Smith likes really short hair, and it's a lot cooler, and no one gives a decent haircut around here so now I just get it buzzed. And buzzed super short, usually a 1 or a 2. (3mm or 6mm).
This week went pretty well. Both Elder Kivaya and I were a little sick all week. Elder Kivaya was feeling really bad Friday so we came home in the afternoon. He still has somewhat of a cold. On saturday we traveled to Koforidua for zone conference. The north zone did awesome last transfer and our goals were solid this transfer so there wasn't really much in the way of chastisement. President Smith gave us good instruction. I'm really coming to admire him as a leader. He is really intelligent and his style is correct. Pragmatic, and building step by step. If we do as he teaches us we really can't help but have success.
Happy Birthday Ellery! Sorry about the allergies everyone. Tell Aunt Emily congrats for me and good luck. Love you guys. See you in 18 months!
Elder Bradford Chambers
