Chapter 72 - May 27, 2013

So the first thing that happened this week is we got transfer calls.  And........the person leaving this transfer is........none other than....elder.......arrowchis  :(.  Ya my name got drawn as tribute and i am going to be transfered to Alameda, which is down in poci [Pocatello, ID]. Yes, i am EXTREMELY sad to be leaving Ririe, it seriously feels like im leaving home, but it will be good.  I guess more news is i have been called to be a district leader down in alameda.  I am going to have 10 elders in my district (including me and my comp) So that means i will have to go on 9 exchanges a transfer (which is going to be a lot of work and i am going to have to stay on my A game but it will keep me busy which will be good XD).  Transfers aren't until June 5th (so about a week and a half away) so if you haven't sent that package yet (if you have i just haven't gotten it yet) could you send it please XD.  Thanks XD.  Well, that's all i really have to report on so i guess peace out till next week XD.

Chapter 71 - May 20, 2013

So skyping you guys on sunday was a ton of fun.  It felt good to talk to all of you and it reminded me how much of a dork family i have XD haha.  I mean i was getting worried that you guys might actually be non-dorks when i got home and we can't have that now can we hahaha ;).  Oh, so i mentioned this for like 5 seconds on the skype call but i have a new game for us to get competitive in.  It's called Hand and Foot and it is a super fun game and i can totally see us getting super competitive over this game hahaha.  The jose's are the ones that taught us it and we play it every now and then with them XD.

So i totally agree with david that you have gotten a little "trunky" hahahaha XD.  It's ok, ill be non-trunky for us.  That's so awesome that Melanie is leaving tomorrow for the MTC.  She is going to be a great missionary and is going to love it down in Peru.  Speaking of Peru, how is parker doing?  Has he gotten word about a visa yet?  Also, could i get his email address so i could send him an email?  How is he doing learning spanish?  Man, it's so exciting hearing about all these missionaries leaving on missions and all these people getting their calls.  I can't wait for next week to find out where Scott is going.  I am going to put my guess in now that Scott will get sent to....The Idaho Pocatello Mission!!!!!!! hahaha.  That would be super cool if he did come to this mission and would be even cooler if i got to train him.  That's kind of a long stretch but just saying it would be cool hahaha :).  That's also legit that you guys are becoming the Irvine Mission.  I agree with those missionaries though, i have the same thoughts about the twin falls mission.  I don't want to be one of the missionaries getting switched to that mission because it's not the mission i am called to hahaha XD.

Well, this week was a good one for us in Ririe.  We were able to teach 9 lessons this week and we currently have an investigator up in Swan Valley that is progressing very well and has a baptismal date set for June 8th XD.  She is so excited to be baptized and for our next visits.  Between this time and the last time we taught her (so a week because we go up to swan every Thursday) she read 15 chapters!  She shocked both me and my companion with how much she read because neither of us have ever had anyone read that many chapters in between teaching appointments hahaha :).  

Something else that was fun/cool that happened is me and my comp went Frisbee golfing this morning, before coming to emails, in a park called Freeman Park in Idaho Falls and we had a blast!  The course there is an 18 hole course and we did the whole point system of you get a point when you get a par or lower for the hole and the score ended up being 6-2 with me winning XD.  We decided we want to do that every p-day now so we can get better at Frisbee golf haha.  Well, that's all i have to write about this week.  Thanks for everything and peace out till next week XD.

With love,
Elder ---chis--->

(no email due to Skype calls)

Chapter 69 - May 6,2013

WOOOOOOOOOOOT!!!! Man, that just made my day to hear that Villi got his mission call!!!! XD.  Man i am so excited for him XD.   I am a little sad to hear that he isn't coming to the Idaho Pocatello Mission and i don't get to train him but oh well hahaha.  And man that's awesome that Paul was ordained an Elder Today.  I miss all those young men, well i guess they aren't young men anymore hahaha, so much but i will see them all when they get home from their missions XD.  So when does Villi report to the MTC?

So this week was a legit week for us in Ririe XD.  We were able to find 2 more investigators this week and both accept the invitation to be baptized! XD.  And to top it off, one of those investigators was in swan valley which i have only had 1 other investigator in swan valley my entire time here XD so we are pretty excited hahaha.  Welll.....I don't wanna ruin all the suprises sooooo i am going to end this email and save the rest for our skype call XD.  Peace out and can't wait till sunday to do my LAST skype call home.  Whow, this will be parker's first one and my last one...wierd hahahaha

With love,
