Alright for starters, thanks for sending the card :) second just call or ask dad/James to help with the ipod :) and third what pictures to print off.... just ones of family,friends,pets, the home, like the picture of Moroni/backyard/ house :) and then like the whole process of my car in the shop like before/during/and after pictures :) because on the ipod you cant really tell what happened and I've had people want to see more pictures of my car, like my stake mission leader for instance because he has a 1970 challenger its pretty sick!. And those Missionary lines are so true! I've lived them all so far that I can remember :) for us to live we get 200$ US so that's like 197$ canadian things are a little more expensive up here there's a lot of import and such. We pretty much have a dinner every night out here. bishops a funny guy, he said there's no reason that this ward shouldn't be able to feed us every night, and so they started stepping up. We have been to Vauxhall twice, first time none of our potential investigators was home, then just last night we went to the ward mission leaders house and ate with him and was introduced to the ward list essentially haha, we just went over it, got a couple of names that should turn out to be promising so we are going to get out there some time this week :) Campbell is getting better, seeing how mission really is and starting to become less green, I swear the MTC brain washes you haha. I will send pictures here in a bit :) Moms email
Taber is still slow, No Less actives really want us or have time they say, all the members that we talk with either let us in to chat for a little bit or don't even invite us into the door, but that's ok because we got out to Vauxhall this week and have a good list of names, we met with the Ward mission leader and he encouraged us to meet with about 4 families who have had some really promising potential the last few missionaries, so i'm excited to get teaching out there.
We get Taco time every Tuesday for taco Tuesday! and yes we have a car that we have been told to just drive, they haven't given us a Clique allotment yet, president just told us to drive.
This week we finished up teaching a less active families daughter about being baptized and her date is on the 21st of this month, but its a child of record because shes still only 8 but thats ok still another person in the water :)
P-Day we didn't do anything because we went on the hike on Saturday with the Ward, so we had to sacrifice p-day, but this p-day we plan on going into Lethbridge to play with Nerf guns, that seems to be pretty popular out in the mission here ,so I got myself a big ol sniper nerf gun haha, last night for dinner we had some Venison, and the other night we had some Navajo tacos, so pretty much like a doughy pastry/deep fried tortilla tostada is what they are, those were pretty delicious.
And I have plenty of people emailing me, pretty much all my friends and bishop and such so its awesome to open the email and see like 17 unread messages haha. Well love ya dad!
I Asked Elder Martin a few things, and how he was doing on his mission and of course the miles thing with his car, and this is his response " yea i'm loving every minute of it, and President Nicholas is more concerned about the people then the miles it seems."
Pictures of Ward Waterton Crystal Lake Hike
we had to crawl through this cave and then hug the side of the the mountain haha
