The Temple! E-mail - June 26, 2012

So I will actually get to send you a real email!!  This last week Alfredo called and asked me to be his escort in the temple.  It was really weird escorting someone through the Temple.  It reminded me of when John did it almost two years ago!!
I also had my outgoing interview with the Presidenrt it was pretty intense.  We talked about college and making goals for your life and such. We also talked about being released... PLEASE let me be released on Wednesday, if not John, we are going to be comps! President made me promise that Iwould continue to live mission rules that means you too!!!!
Don't have much else to say so I will  let you go.
Love you all!

God Bless The Long Road! E-mail June 18, 2012

Well it was an interesting week. We had a lot of trouble meeting with people. It's weird, it seems that people expect me to be trunkie, but its hard not to be.  I have my final interview with President tomorrow, it is super sad to know that I will be leaing soon. Some of my investigators cried earlier because I was leaving for good. It's sweet to hear Alfredo got his call, he really deserves it! I don't know if I ever told you his story...
Alfredo and I met back when I had been out for six months, back in Menifee. I was in Menifee Lake and he was in Perris and we didn't know each other super well, but we knew each other(he gave us lots of rides)! Then I got transferred to Temecula and he moved to the desert (unknown to me) so when I got to Perris I thought  I would see him... nope, so then I got transferred to the desert and we almost spent everyday together.  He was like having another Elder with us and  was also a way to deal with my companion.  Alfredo had a pretty sucky home life, so we stuck it out together! It's sweet that he is going on his mission, that has been his goal for the past while!  I am super proud of him!
My Bishop here asked me to speak my last week, so I will be speaking on how Heavenly Father has blessed the long road as a missionary.  It should be interesting, the Ward has been super nice as they keep pushing me to work my hardest these last few weeks. I have a baptism on Saturday so I know I'm working hard!
Well, I  don't know what else to say so I'm going to sign off!!!
Love you all!

A Long Week! E-mail - June 11, 2012

Well, it was transfers week and all the Elders had a party for me since
I'm on my death bed (its my last transfer)!  So begins the final countdown
6 weeks and no one is letting me forget it and I mean no one. The
Elder that is killing me (my last comp) is pretty cool. He is making a
list of what stuff everyone wants so I don't know how much stuff I will
have.  The guitar I  had is now Elder Mckees. I really don't know what else to say and I'm running out of time.  Sorry.
Did anyone get an email from Meaghan, because i didn't???!!!
