I am replying to your emails by writing letters mostly. But thanks for sending me Megan's talk!! I printed it off and will read it during personal study tomorrow!!!
ALSO, thanks for sending Adelide's letters! I LOVE THEM!!
THANKS FOR THE PACKAGE!!! I have been eating easy mac every night and I think those jawbusters will last through my entire mission hahahaha.
Also, thanks for the CHOCOLATE! I love it all soo much!! 

This week was legend- wait for it - ary.
Last night we had a devotional talk by Sister Jenny Oaks Baker. Dallin H Oaks' daughter, who is a renowned Mormon violinist! She was soo good!! She did several musical numbers with her family. She has a son that is 7 and plays classical guitar. He was actually really good, but his dad kept getting mad at him because he kept turning around to look at himself in the screen hahahahahahahah

I love devotionals but my favorite part of this Sunday was listening to Elder Holland's talk "Lord I Believe" we watched it as a district and I printed off the talk today because I loved it so much!!! Elder Holland is my favorite speaker right now. 

Our investigators are really moving along!! We have three and here are their stories:
Liang Jeimei: Is a LA ( less active ). Has read the Book Of Mormon and knows it's true but likes to party with her friends. She has all the money she needs and is happy. So she thinks she doesn't need the gospel. This week we taught her that we can't know if the Church is true unless we pray about it so she is going to!!! YAY! She is the hardest investigator any of us have so this is a lot of progress!!! 

oh and we inherited this suit jacket from the past district, so i modeled for a bit lol
By the end of our lesson she was crying because we told her that she needed to change and she said she was scared. We determined her real problem was not that she had a drinking problem or anything but that she was really just scared of changing and being accepted. She is awesome. We are excited for her to progress.
Pan Jeimei: Her husband just left her and she is afraid of getting pushed away but we got her to go to church and she felt the love of the members there. She has committed to baptism!!! WAHOO.
Li Jiemei: Her son is on a mission but she has never tried learning of our church so she knew nothing. Her main problem is feeling accepted. Because of that when we invited her to church we had sisters come with us to take her to church so she wasn't alone. She loved it!! And we committed her to baptism too!!!! so this week was great. I really loved it. 

I just said farewell to Jamison not 30 minutes ago as he walked to his bus!! and Elder Spurrier left this week too ! It is sad but also awesome.
    Can you send me the lyrics to Pipin's song from LOTR?? The sad one where the orks kill everyone and stuff?? hahahah Sister Sorenson and I have been trying to remember how it goes for days. Also. if you want to print of a copy of The Giving Tree? I WOULD BE HAPPY AS A PENGUIN. 

Elder Bodily

Elder Ward and Elder Motzkus!!!
This work is true.
I am out of time.
But I love you.
