What about Spencer Palmer? I don't understand what you were saying? Yes I got kenna's package on Wednesday on my birthday. I loved the package and gifts thank you so much. Mom haha I realized that I could have told you to go on to by the new shaver head. Thank you for the new one though. Man dad is just traveling everywhere. Yes I actually was super blessed on the day of my birthday we went by a member to see how they were doing and then gave us coconut cream cake from Sams Club it opened up here on the same day as my birthday which is my favorite Then, we had a meal appointment on that day, which is a miracle because we hardly have those, and they had pizza and a super yummy chocolate cake. My companion told them it was my birthday and they did a 21 and sang to me. It was a super good birthday. It was a pretty day that day too. So what it the topic that I am suppose to speak on? Yes I am getting truckie transferred to hildago. It is super close to the board and to the mission office. I am not going to the North which I thought was going to happen. I think that I am going to go brake a newer which I have never done, (Brake meaning the next companion after training) So I am excited about the next area. It is a car which I haven't been in a car area for a while. Sorry this letter is super short it is because most of my time was loading pictures.

If you look close my hand it going up to hit him in the back of the head because he wouldn't smile right. haha

March 17, 2014

Oh yes I totally forgot to tell you about the hair. I loved it the other Elders thought it was gross. haha Yes I got the other package that you sent on Saturday. Yes the weather has been super crazy down here it doesn't want to make up its mind. the wind as been super strong down here too. It makes one slow on the bike. Dad's letter was smaller because I ran out of time to keep on writing. Yes I am doing really well. Learning and growing more and more. :) So last Pday I Sprained my ankle pretty bad playing basketball. I have Pictures. My shoe slipped off a little bit and I went down on it and I heard my ankle pop. So I had to look up what to do on the Missionary health guide book. It said if the pain or swelling was over the boney part of the ankle and so I had to call Sister Maulenda and then send her a text of how it happened and details about it. So then, I had the area Doctor call me, so, I talked to him. So I was going to play a joke on you and put this sentence after this next one put I thought that and then say just kidding after that but would be super bad and rude to yall. (So I might have to come home early it is bad we will see.) No but it is fine the Doctor just said ice it and but a brace on it. ELder Guielltte had a nice brace so I am using that one. He also told me no sports for a while I think about 5 weeks great. It is healing very nice and fast. I can ride the bike and everything. However, if I walk to far I just have to take a brake and then keep going. Won't lie I was a little bit slower this past week. haha Also we had zone conference this last week and Sister Maluenda did a power point of missionary safety and of course it goes over things on about Pday and then See says like Elder Wilding he sprained his ankle hopefully he doesn't have to go home early. Then moved on and president stopped and asked who did that?!? then of course I had to raise me hand and say me. then he asked my some questions about what happened so every one know and then they said so jokes about it here and there. It was all good. So you know how I am a hypochondriac so when I first did it I went to the side and in my head I though that I had messed it up bad because it was super tingly it felt the same way as I did when I broke my arm the second time. SO in my head I was like I don't want to go home if I messed it up. I will work in the mission office I will go and work at the MTC for the last bit I'll do anything I said to myself. I was just a little worry there is reason to be right? :)   However, all is good. We also went to SIster Stacy Dukes house to move a chicken coop and then she feed us lunch and she had to turkeys and I would gopple and then make the young Jake gopple and they would all laugh and I loved it. then the other Elders know that I could make good animal noises and so I did a cow one and they all loved it. ahah Sister Dukes has a small little farm for recuing animals. It was fun. She also had quail hard-boil eggs they looked like little dinosaur eggs. Thank you all for the birthday wishes! :) I can't believe that I am going to be 21! I don't feel that old.  Love you all!!! :)

No you can wait on the shaver Head I will wait on that. Also yes that is the Date that I come home Julianne sounded so excited in her Emailed I loved it. It made me smile and laugh inside. Also I need to ask you all something. Don't post on face book what time I arrive at the airport. Close friends and family is good because that is a lot already. haha I am still me and all but I think that because I will be so excited/shocked from the amazing Plane ride. That I might have a heart attack. However, Don't stress yourselves out it you think it is to many people I love people. You will also get to met Elder Sanderson's family because they will be there waiting too. Haha I also got a another short call from the office to ask when my license expires so good thing that I already got that done. they called because in the past there has been missionaries whose licenses have been expired and it is super hard to get out of the Valley, that is the name of all the border town here, with out your license so they have had to maintain some missionaries here until the had figured that all out. I am all good now I just need to hold on to it so that I don't loose it and have to order another one.  Also tell Grandpa thanks the other Elders love the cookies they are so good! Did you get my package I sent it last Tuesday. Anyways enough about that stuff! Funny story time!!! So we have 2 huge hospitals in our area so we give blessings there when people go tell us to visit their friends or family members. or members from other Cities tell us to go visit someone. However, We all know that I am a mountain Boy from Idaho and that has only been on 2 plane ride all to the same place. So I find myself on the 6th floor in the elevator and we are going to the 1st floor. I haven't taken the elevator a lot in my life time. So we entered and they was a guy that go in with us, he was going to the same floor. So we start going down then the door opens and I get out.  Right? Well I make it all the way out then my companion and the other guy final seem to tell me that that is the 2nd floor and the elevator stopped to pick up more people. So I had to turn around and I felt so dumb! We laughed about it afterwards and I said,  "We don't have those where I am from!" haha It was a good thing to laugh about though. I can't think of anything that I would want for my birthday? Just tell me the souvenirs  that you would like? Well I love you guys so much!! Tell Dad that I say hi and that I love him too!! :)

March 3, 2014

Haha for my Birthday I don't need anything. :) Yes you could send me the razor head that would be nice. I just need the razor head not the whole Razor. it should be between 25-35 dollars. No it is fine to ask the date when you start you know that there has to be an end it doesn't bug me at the least. If you served well and did your best it's fine. I fly in on the 7th of May. roughly I will fly in around 5-9 in the afternoon it depends on the lay over from Salt lake which should be the longest one. The one in Dallas should be less than an hour. I fly in With Elder Sanderson who was my companion and I have worked in a lot of the same zone for a good while now. Oh man I loved all the pictures of Ruby and I saw some glimpse of the new Carpet. All the snow at KIm and Mike's house. Also there was a surprise mission meeting of all the leaders in the mission so very fast we had to ride back down to McAllen. So, the hastening the work has hit here in this mission. We had 2 guys from the missionary department to implement a new teaching way for to Preach my gospel in the Details. Well it started out by them telling us the way we teach and do other things through them out, put them on the alter and destroy them! SO now I fill like I have just entered the MTC again because we are now teaching totally differently. They told us how long it will take to get it down and to become very efficient at it. Well, by that time comes I will be home so I just need to work hard and rely on the spirit to guide me and help the investigators. I only know how to teach the first 3 lessons because we haven't been told of trained yet on the models of the other so that is fun. We roll played it and it was in English and I wasn't very good at it. haha I will learn more and be able to grow and apply more than ever and faster than ever. I am doing good here. My bike is going to last me so that will be good. Also transfers are on the 25th of this month so any packages must need to get the apartment before then and if you don't know if they will just send them to the mission office and I will get them on the 25th most probably. :) Anything I didn't answer you can email them and I will get back as soon as possible. Love you guys tons!!!! :)
