hey mommy im glad you emailed me yesterday sorry you had to panick though turns out we had a bunch of teachings so we kinda canceled pday till today. tell steven to quit picking his nose so hard and he wont get hte buggers building up giving him headaches any more. for systems i will probably major in chem E and specialize in systems i think ASU is the only place that actually offers it as a degree. i would just shoot for a school with Chem E and take it from there. my view on wrestling is if i can do it without taking from school to much ill take it. plus the angel wearing a singlet told me if i get a scholarship that i should just take it.... i talked to my mission pres and he said that i will just have to get home to be released... i really dont have any schedule for when i get home so the 17th sounds like a good time to speak... we were supposed to each a lady this morning and commit her to be baptised i have been thinkin about it all morning but when we showed up she was busy and asked us to come back on monday... agency it will get you.. ummmmm brain te'epilo i cant think of what else i was going to tell you guys so ill just say i love you and hope your all still alive when i get home love me

hey mom i wear clean undies most of the time but im afraid i dont have any vitamins for the last year or so haha its ok though im healthy and happy. i started taking my morning program seriously and have been gtetting some really good workouts in turns out thirty minutes can get a pretty good burn going. i got so i can do 100 pushups in a row now. trying to get loking decent so more people will listen to me.. ;-) i have no idea what the rules are for importing pills and stuff im pretty sure as long as its in fairly small portions and you could justify its for noncommercial use i think your clear. ill ask tukuafu about getting released. the thing is noone seems to be able to tell me why i have to wait till i get home to be released.. the only thing i have heard is so i dont get in trouble but since im with you two the whole time i dont see things getting all that crazy.. Love Elder Mayberry --

Hurry up and email me

HAHAHA mom i love you. sorry we went ot liahona to buy somne stuff for
my comp. we just got back and i saw this email and starting laughing..
i was talking to one of the guys i came in with he hasnt emailed since
july of last year. talk about a while. they usually write letters but
i think that you can guess how realiable the mail is hear. the poor
mom gets 5 lettters at a time then wont hear from him for a few
life is going really good here my comp is a stud and we do a lot of
work. i have this constant desire to just relax and wait for transfers
but he keeps me going.
i kinda miss you guys and am excited for you to come see me.
but life here is good and i cant comlain. i went to a palangi ward on
sunday that we cover. IT WAS WAY WEIRD. but was really funny to listen
mom i want to be trunky so bad but my comp wants to work so bad its
really funny. we work really really hard all day everyday so i dont
start thinkin about home and so he doesnt gt homesick. we have this
horrible luckk of everyone we teach just up and decides not to take
the lessons any more but we find new people and teach them the first
threee lessons then they bail out on us. im kinda used to it but my
poor comp wants so bad to baptise these people.
i love you mom and ill talk to you later

hey cutie this letter is really going to sound broken because i am talking tongan at the same time as trying to write english so if i get confused please correct it before you post it on that blog thing where everyone can laugh at me.... ;-) i think you got it right as far as the girl thing maybe i should wait a little longer to get the whole package. so i dont start looking at the fine print on the warranty after a few years..... sounds like you guys are having fun as always. tell morgan if he spent that much time caring about school as his bike he would be salutatorian Spelling???? I still cant believe jessica is out of the house already that is way to fast...we were just teaching an assembly type thing at the government high school and i was thinkin that these girls and boys are TC and morgans age... i feel pretty old, i have been out of high school over three years now.... i cant believe keely broke down.... she was such a trooper. and the cancer car too???? what have you guys been doing lately? did someone take up street racing? i have two little rays of sunshine here as far as investigators and they take up a lot of time. luckily in tonga time is one thing that is overly abundant. i think i have most of our tavels planned out for when you come. im excited for transfers monday to see where ill be when i finish.. can you believe that i have 6 weeks left...... lov eyou guys and will see you in a few months elder mayberry

Virgil's wife

hey mom i just wanted to drop you a quick line. i just wanted to say i love you and appreciate all the work you put in for your kids. life is going great here i cant complain. just trying to keep from getting trunky. some of the guys i came in with have pretty much already thrown in the towel. but i figure i made 22 months i can stick it out for 2 more so i can have a prettier wife when i get back... im pretty sure thats how that works anyway. anyway my comp is a really c\good guy and we get along really well we just have to be careful to keep it respectful since we have a lot of fun together. one of my girlfriends here said to tell you hi and that she cant wait to meet you guyz before we all go back to america. we plan on getting married after i get back. ;-) i figure i better get hitched fast before steven or jessica does. ;-) love you guys Elder Mayberry

so mom just another week in the other side of heaven. i moved houses
yesterday. same area just different residence. the mission has a nice
rental house right in the middle of our area and we were living in a
little dinky thing on the very edge of our turf. the mission didnt
remember that they were still leasing it since they have so many new
people in there now days but since i was the one who wrote the rental
agreements for all the rentals i remembered that we have six months
left on this house. we moved in and it is awesome. hot water fridge
stove washing machine. i get up early every morning and cook pancakes.
its really cool.
all our investigators ditched out on us so the kinda
stunk but life happens.....
turns out i realized parents just speak
a different language than kids do and no matter how hard you try it
just doesnt stick. we love you a lot though even if we dont listen.
dont take it personally. it happens on a smaller scale all the time on
a mission people not knowing that your giving them eternity in a
handout card... love you mom dont give up on us just yet.
for the trip here for sure we have to go to eua becasue that is the
only island i havent seen. i wanted to take you guys to hafeva but i
remember that you wouldnt appreciate a 6 hour boat ride on a stinky
dirty swaying ferry boat.... luckily tickets can be bought as late as
when you guys actually get here so dont worry about it to much. i have
the housing and all that planned out. as far as what to bring i have
some requests but ill get them to you later. just a few little gifts
for the people here. a lot of people have things planned for us i think
it would be nice to give a little back...
tell steven that i have had some pretty interesting stories here and
he'll have to try pretty hard to top them before i get released.. (non
mother appropriate stories, at least till i get home)
tell hailey and hannah i love them and still have the pictures they
sent me in the MTC. tell granny hi and i love her.
tell grandpa to stay out of trouble and that i could use a good
missionary haircut right now i havent been able to wrangle up any
clippers lately.
mommy i love you and think about you guys about once a week or so....
just kidding ;-)
turns out that even humble virgil can learn a few things if you beat
him over the head and shoulders for a full two years. thanks for
helping me get here. love you mom
love elder mayberry
