May 3, 2011

Things are still going great. We had our first baptism together this Saturday and hit the Standard of Excellence. Pretty excited about that. But it's been the most fun I've had in awhile. First time I've been able to have a solid balance of working and playing hard. I think it makes some elders crazy though. Like some are hating their life because they are so obedient but they arent having the success we are. They dont get it! Supposed to enjoy your mission. People can see through the whole trying to be perfect act. They're all so uptight they can't have an actual relationship with people or have the spirit. But I'm just glad I finally got this whole mission thing figured out. Having so much fun and still hitting the standard. Its great! Interviews with President are this week. I'm really excited for them. Let him know what's up and get to talk for a little bit.

Definitely getting fed alot though. Samoans are great. Kind of weird, because when we go to their houses we just sit at the table with the dad and he talks to Lameta in Samoan the whole time. So I just chill eat and wait to say "Oklahoma". It's fun though. They hook us up all the time with food. Randomly get knocks at the door at night and they drop off food. But I still haven't gained ANY weight. Still 220. Gonna hit 200 by my year mark. That's the goal anyway. lol

Good to hear my grandmas are doing better though. Pretty crazy how quick all that stuff with Nana happened.

But a month away from hitting a year of going to the MTC. Sooo crazy! But things are great. Couldn't be happier right now. Love you Momma!

Talk to you on Sunday! :)
