Leaving for Vava’u

Hi Fam!

So i leave to Vava’u tomorrow, which is monday back at home. It’s crazy! they said the boat ride sucks cause everyone gets sea sick.

We have been teaching this girl name Tapuaki Manisela. She’s asking alot of questions but i dont know if she’s way interested yet. she comes from a catholic background. she’s way nice, her cousin is always there sometimes during the lessons and its kinda awkward cause they said she’s into missionaries so i made sure my heart was locked hahaha

Im so FREAKIN HAPPY THAT DIXIE WON!!!

I miss you guys and i dont know how ill be able to get a hold of you guys in Vava’u but if i do they say the computers are slow! so we’ll see how that goes.

Hows work mom and dad?

When is the baby due Ames? Im so bummed i wont be there!

How are the cougars looking? i dont know who they have played??

Anything new Jake? hows my xbox hahah (;

Hope my Fav nephew is doing okay! give loves and kisses for me.

I miss all of you guys. Tell Tikirs im proud of her and i love her.

Hope to hear from you guys soon. Im about to go play some Volleyball.

Keep me in your prayers i’ve gotten a tiny bit homesick. thats been the only problem. besides that its been pretty solid. LOVE and MISS you guys!

Love,

What up!

Hi family. whats going on? Sounds like you guys had an awesome weekend. I sure miss you guys. So i guess ill kind of just answer everyones questions. So yes mom i talk to Kade everyday. we have class together and his room is right next to mine. I didnt know Tika was graduating! thats so awesome! and ill definently write to congradulate her. So being flight leader I have to just make sure all 22 guys get on the airplane and doesnt mess around in the airport. i think i should be fine. its just alot of guys to look after ya know? So i emailed Auntie Laine they other day cause her nephew is in my class. his names vave. he’s the big one in the pictures with me most the time. but anyways she sent me some pics of misi boy and he’s gotten huge! I cant believe how big he is now. So i heard we killed Lehi. hahah the running back from lehi last year is in my room and he was talking so much smack about how good they would be and how they’ll kill us. well the score board never lies. Im way jealous of the football game. I hope i cant hear it while im up here. but i will for sure. Kade is a huge Texas fan and he said he’s going to be so mad hearing that game go on. Im jealous you saw the smiths. i sure miss that family. Thats a bummer Ips is out. and Shad!?? whats going on? and Jo too…. wow tell them to suck it up. it’s there freakin senior year! haha jk!

So I felt as this time i’ve been at the MTC did kinda go by fast. im starting to get hecka nervous. The language is coming around. I’ve been able to teach lessons without any notes for the past two weeks. so i feel as im progressing. My companion is progessing hard core! But he studies alot better than i do. its hard to sit there for 3 hours just studying. I go crazy! This is for Amy. I think the most meaningful think i’ve learned here is to just do you. Cause i’ve noticed even here being at the MTC you’re going to have some hard core disobedient elders and its like what President Monson says. do you dare stand alone. and sometimes i feel that way being here cause i have to just not get caught up with everyone just cause they’re doing something wrong makes it okay. if that makes sense? but i hope my companion out in the field is a good trainer and obedient too. they say its way laid back in the islands and they sleep in til like 10 o’clock. so I dont know how that will go. but we’ll see. Im so ready to get out of here. Well I love you all I hope everythings going good. you’re always in my prayers. I love and miss you. Cant wait to hear from you guys soon. Ofa lahi atu!

Love,
