July 21, 2010

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
