2 May 2012

hey everybody!!!!!!!!! first of all, i miss you guys! second of all, life is going really well here!!!! :)

we had lots of stuff happen this past week!

last saturday we ran our 5k, actually, it was only 2.8 miles lol. i did it in 22 mins. and then limped around for like 4 days :) but it was fun! i really like the wards im in, so its always fun to get together for an activity.

but the big thing that is going on is elder christensen and i have been kicking butt! we both set a personal record for lessons taught in a week last week and we're on our way to having another great week! i decided that i hope i stay here another transfer so i can see what happens in the area. next week we'll see what happens. prez told us today that where we are next transfer is the mission we'll stay in. so by mothers day i'll know where im going!

speaking of mothers day! im super excited to talk to my mama next week!

on thursday, we asked teresa if she wanted to be baptized on may 12th, and on sunday she said she is, "seriously seriously considering the 12th" :) hopefully he lesson goes well this week!

and we had an awesome first lesson with chris and ashley. they are a young couple with 5 little kids. they are awesome! way down to earth, devoted to their family, sick of living in the desert, my kind of people! they're the biggest reason i want to stay in the area.

so i had a break though this week. it finally feels normal to be here. im used to being a missionary in Vegas. not only that, but vegas is actually growing on me! dont get me wrong, i miss trees and grass and rain, but vegas isnt so bad! the area im in is pretty cool. im even used to riding my bike! (which broke this past week lol. my shifter is broken, i have to hold it in 2nd gear, otherwise it will shift to 1st. i cant even force it into 3rd lol)

life is good :)

except that i havent seen many letters recently....

i bet they're lost in the mail somewhere, im sure they'll get here soon :)

funny story:
in one of the mission apartments there is a punching bag. about an hour ago my companion yelled "this is sparta!", kicked the bag, and put a huge rip in his pants. it was so funny!

this week i am working on being more patient. but this is the last week im working on it. if it doesnt get better by next monday, i quit.

i hope everybody is have a super duper fun day :) y'all are awesome!
