We are teaching a great family here that we met last week. The father is a carpenter. He is going to make a samurai style handle out of fine hardwood for my machete. I know you are all jealous. They couldn´t come to church this week because he had to work yesterday, but they accepted a date to be baptized and they are reading the Book of Mormom! It was pretty great when they accepted the date to be baptized as the whole rest of the week was pretty rough. We started out pretty much with nobody, which means knocking on doors and bugging people in the street. We found some new people to teach, but we still need a lot more. I wish people would just listen to us and then ask God if what we taught them is true. It would be so easy!
As for college.... I still don´t know... I would like to go to BYU-Idaho, but I have also been thinking about BYU-Provo... Who knows... As soon as I know I´ll let you know! For Christmas... I know it’s kinda boring... but I don´t really know what to ask for... I mean, I am getting close to the end of my mission... by Christmas I´ll only have 5 months left! I hate to be super boring and all... Maybe just have a ton of people send me letters? Or send money J Just kidding! Maybe get stuff for a home coming party? I know you are more creative than I am, so I´m sure you´ll figure out something that will blow my mind J It’s kind of hard for me to ask for stuff also because last year left me traumatized! (His package was lost in the mail and never made it L) Those throwback pictures you sent of all of us on vacation are super baggy! (or trunky as they say there- makes me excited to be home!)
Love you much! Thanks for the updates! I read them and treasure them, even if I don´t always comment on them due to the time constraints. Today I had to write everybody AND reformat the retention lists for the whole zone in Excel (good thing I am a pro at Excel J)
Anyways that’s all I got for this week,
Be good! Elder Rice
