May the 4th be with you!! J
Haha! Get it?! Yes, I am still a nerd and the mission won't change that!!!
I'm not positive on the time on Sunday, but it should be at 2 or later my time. So 12 or later your time.) We are Skyping! And I was able to get a little more time since I'll be talking to you and dad. So I have 30 minutes with each of y'all!! Why don't y'all just have Griffin on speakerphone? That way he can still hear what's going on and be part of the conversation.
That was my first week of bike/walk week. The way my district works is we are doing a car share. There are 4 sets of missionaries and 3 cars. Every set has 3 weeks with a car, and 1 week walking or riding a bike. Hot Springs isn't very conducive for riding bikes, so we walked. I am back on car though.
Ethan is doing good. We committed him to being baptized on May 17. He is struggling with word of wisdom things, but that is so common here in the South. We just need to do all we can and teach them and help them learn for themselves what they need to do.
I'm good. As the ward mission leader told me last night, "I don't have a look of terror any more!" So that's always a good thing!! But honestly, I'm doing good. The work is long and hard, but it is completely worth it!! The time has been flyin' past! I can't believe transfers are already coming up! We have no idea who is leaving and who is staying. We won't know until the Sunday before. Sister Zent thinks she's going to be a lifer in Hot Springs. She's already been here for 6 months- her first area. We both joke that the other is leaving, but she had a dream that I got the call to be transferred. But we'll just have to wait and see.
I don't think I need anything. Just news and pictures and love and support. Which is what everyone is doing.
Congrats to Griffin and Abby! [I don't have enough time to write him or her that.]
Dom will be a great ward missionary! Same with Cassandra! I'm so proud of her!
