SO i am stressed about this email. I have had SO much happen since i last really talked to you. It is not my fault that i couldn’t email you.
I got transferred to Bennet Valley in Santa Rosa and i am whitewashing so i had a lot to do. I didn’t have a P-day! And i just opened your package with all the complicated application stuff. I am tired of looking at it. I’ll answer your questions though. Whitewashing has been crazy and fun. That means both of us are new to the area. I am in the ward that president shumway served in. it used to be santa rosa 2nd and we meet at the yulupa chapel. I love being back in santa rosa. We have been working hard and have some of the best members in the whole mission in our ward. We have a lot of the stake leaders in our ward cause its an older part of town. We have a few investigators and one in an exchange student from germany! his name is bennet stubbe. He is a lot of fun, we had him come to president alba’s home with us after the priesthood session of conference. He has been here the whole school year and has made friends with a lot of mormon kids. He comes to seminary and church and mutual and the missionaries just started teaching him. We are going to get him a germany book of moromon this week.
General Conference was amazing! i did see brother beukers. It was sweet. We had all the zone at the old chapel that i used to go to a long time ago in a ward a long way away in santa rosa when my companion was black. It was so much fun to be back there! We had a lunch provided by some members on each day . The funniest moment was when i was sitting behind the stake president (who is in my ward) and he was doodling a picture of president monson while he was speaking. I got a good laugh out of that. He was doing a good job.
