Haha-that would have been priceless to see you working with the pigs. I wish I could've seen that. (I told him about an adventure I had with my neighbor and I trying to take care of her kids' fair pigs in the dark). I think I'm ready to move on, even though I like this ward. I think I'm ready to move onto the next chapter. I like a lot of stuff about my mission-the crazy experiences, the people, the food (of course), and just being a missionary. My least favorite part of my mission is bike problems, stupid people, or when people just don't get things or don't understand what you're telling them-it's just frustrating sometimes. To help me with different areas of the gospel, I just study on the areas I want to learn about or ask my companion. When things get hard, I just get over it, move on, find ways to improve, and just plow through it. This last week was kinda stressful because we had quite a few bike problems. I had to buy a new rim which cost $60, which stunk. We spent quite a bit of time fixing bikes, but we did do a lot of service, which was fun. We had about 14 hours of service! I haven't gotten the package you sent with Sr. Tingey's sister yet, but I will on Tuesday I think. The mission office called and said they had it. Nothing too exciting happened this week, but it went alright. I hope all is going well for ya back home and goes well this week, also. Dad-that is a very cool experience in the temple and yes, I definitely believe there are certain people in our lives who make a big impact when others can't. I'm thankful for the wonderful leaders I had and the life lessons I have learned from you and mom, even though I wasn't always receptive to some of them-haha. Thank you for sharing that and I will try to remember back to those times. Thank you for all you do for us! Love ya!
P.S. I forgive you for selling Penny (our Boxer) -I'm not sure if he really does or if he's trying to put a guilt trip on me. :)
