Hey Mom and Dad,
First of all, I have to say that those pictures of climbing the mountain are awesome! And it sounds like Mom didn't have a heart attack from the stress so it was a successful climb. But that looks really cool I'm glad you had fun doing that. We just have transfers this week and Elder Von Brughan and I are both staying here so we're really excited for that. Our mission is going through some drastic changes lately. We just dropped from 8 zones to 6 since the overall number of missionaries has gone down quite a bit so our districts and everything have gotten all rearranged so that's crazy. And then starting next week p-days are moving to monday. It's pretty intense stuff.
Thank you for doing all those things for Natalie. She told me how great you guys were and she really appreciates all of it so thank you so much for that.
I hope the camping trip went ok. I really miss that alot. I would've totally gone for some of that extremely unhealthy camping food. I bet it tasted good if nothing else. I've decided I'm going to eat healthy for the last year of my mission and try to lose a few more of my extra pounds. I'll have to only buy vegetables to eat in the flat cuz you can't really choose what you get fed when you go to members' houses you know. So I'm going to try and do my best.
I haven't gotten my package yet but we're going up to the office today for p-day to collect our post so I should be getting it today I would imagine. We'll have to see what happens. Gerry is taking us up into Birmingham today for p-day to check things out and get some good chinese food in Birmingham's "Chinatown". We're pretty pumped for that. Oh ya and I did get the letters from the young women tell them all thank you from me. I'll try and write a letter back when I get a bit of spare time.
Thank you again for the pictures Dad. And for the life lesson. That was great. Sad story, but a good lesson learned from it. Thank you for that. I had better get going now because I'm out of time but thank you both for everything. I love you both
