Hey Mom and Dad,
I'm still in Nottingham and I'm loving it! I'm way excited to stay cuz I thought for sure I was leaving. We had a really good week this week. We decided we wanted to work harder and get the area going, and to clear my head a bit, so we made a goal last week to give out 20 copies of the Book of Mormon in a day. We did it on Saturday and then gave away 17 more on Monday. It was pretty sweet. So now we're working with some really cool people including a Chinese student so it's a good thing we have Wang-dog to talk to him. He's cool though. It's all good here. Unfortunately Bedke is leaving us though for his last few weeks and going to Rugby to make sure Von Brughan is doing ok and then he goes home on the 22nd. I gave him your phone number so you might be getting a call sometime late next month. If you get the chance I think it'd be cool if you went up to his homecoming in Oakley. He said he'd love to see you there. He said he'd set me up on some dates when I get home too. We'll have to see what happens
I'm really excited for you guys to meet President and Sister Ogden. They are seriously the coolest ever. That guy is my hero. He's always inspired whenever he talks and it's the coolest thing ever.
Mom, I got your card a couple of days ago. I loved the memories everyone had of Blake, some of them made me laugh really hard and then cry at the same time. Garrett's was really funny. All of the car rides and some of the names we used to call each other came to mind and I had a good laugh about it. I just wish I could bring him over here and show him some of the stuff that only he and I would think is funny. I see that kind of stuff all the time and I just wish he could laugh with me about it. Luckily I've had Bedke here the last couple of months cuz we laugh at alot of the same stuff as me and Blake would have. Like the other day we were getting on the bus with some investigators to go to church and some nasty looking, very unconvincing, he/she transvestite came to the bus stop and we both lost it. It was flipping hilarious.
The weather here has been pretty nice lately. We've had a couple of cold days and yesterday it rained for a bit but it wasn't too cold. And rain is just par for the course so you just get used to it, even if it is bollocks.
So now you own the lots on both sides of the house? What are you going to do with the other one? If you put grass on it we're going to have one hellacious amount of lawn to cut. How is my car doing? Is it still sitting around or do you drive it every now and again?
I've put myself on a pretty stiff diet for lunches and breakfast cuz we eat dinner with members usually so you just eat what you're fed but my breakfasts involve whole wheat rolls, egg whites, and plenty of Cholula hot sauce and then lunches are usually fruit or a can of tuna, once again with plenty of Cholula to cover the taste cuz tuna is nasty. But it's good for you so I eat it. I've been doing it for about a week and a half now and I've lost somewhere between a half in and an inch of waist and lost 7 pounds so we're making progress haha. The only problem is now I'll have to adjust my posh suit that I left at Gerry's. But that can get sorted out no problem. To answer your Easter package question, mom, yes I would love some dried apples or bananas if you have them and also just some more new g's would be good. Other than that I can't think of anything I need. I'm about out of time now though so I better get rolling. I love you guys. Talk to you later.
p.s. Bedke said he might call you guys to fly up to Burley and meet up for dinner and some golf if you're up for it, just so you know.
