Tuesday July 8, 2008

Hey family and friends I have had a good week and I hope you all had one too. I would like to start off and thank you all for all the letters of support I love and cherish them all, also thanks for the cookies, donoughts and other goodies you guys are the best I feel so lucky. It sounds like alyssa had an awesome time at EFY which is great ill write you more about that alyssa. How was your boat made out of cardboard and weighed 300 pounds Ian? That must of been some pretty heavy duty cardboard but that sounds like it was a ton of fun how long did it take you guys to make it? And what is even better is you got paid doing it :) I am glad you had a good birthday dad sounds like you got some pretty cool gadgets and i am sure you loved working on your plane. Was there still snow around the cabin at all? I still see snow off in the distance on mount timpanogos which is kind of cool.

I was asked what my sunday schedule is like and it goes pretty much like this 6:30 wake up shower get ready and are in our classroom by 7:00 for studying/interviews for an hour, 8:00-8:30 is breakfast which is just cereal and fruit since they try and keep the staff as low as possible on sundays, 8:30-9:30 is branch council 9:30-10:30 leadership training. From 11-12 is priesthood meeting and 12-1 is a district lesson which is always really good, 1:00-1:45 is lunch with 1:45-2:45 sacrament meeting. After sacrament meeting we usually go up for a walk around the temple take some pictures and head back to our residence halls where we usually listen to a talk we call it an evening with Bruce since one of the disctrict members has a bunch of old Bruce R. McConkie talks on his ipod, that goes till dinner at 5:45-6:30 and after that we go get a seat for the fireside at 7, its really nice the 15 minutes before the fireside starts we all sing a bunch of hymns to get ready then we have a speaker usually somebody who has to do with the missionary department of the church, this last sunday was a couple who had just gotten home that week from serving as mission presidents in brazil. After the fireside we get to watch a church movie which is always great and thats about it, sundays are pretty sweet here.

For the 4th of july we had a big fireside and played these songs with chimes which was surprisingly fun and then after that they let us go out and watch the fireworks which i have decided is alot better when you are with family but it was still good.

The TRC went good this last week we did it all in Czech, we had a woman from the Czech republic and it is alot different hearing a native speak quite a bit faster but it still went good and its good to hear what its going to actually be like. That statistic you wanted mom is 3910 hopefully that helps. Our district is really tight and we have alot of fun together but also stay focused and learn alot, its amazing how much you can learn here and how strong the spirit is. The temple is closed for the next two weeks but ill be able to go one more time before i leave you should all go at newport it was really good when we all went there the last time i was at the beach. How are the living arrangements gonna be this year at the beach? It sounds like Jenni and Mason are doing great in Texas that there dentistry went well there and that they are excited for the beach its crazy that summer is almost over it seems like it was just starting when I left.

Mom and Dad you guys are getting pretty adventurous with the mountain bikes that sounds like alot of hard work up there in those mountains with no air. I'm finally starting to get in some good cardio shape here. Our teachers told us some pretty funny stories this week they were telling us how sometimes a member or an investigator starts getting a thing for a missionary and how for us to deal with it they told some stories about some crazy stalkers and stuff haha. i think my comb over, short sleeve dress shirt and pens in the pocket will protect me though.

Its going well here i am really starting to enjoy it there is an amazing atmosphere here you cant get anywhere else. I hope you guys all have a great week I love you all so much you are so awesome. The gospel of Jesus Christ is truly a wonderful thing and i am so thankful for the opportunity i have of being able to share it with the Czech people. In church the hymn i have been given much was played and i felt like it applied so much to me then, I have been given much so I too must give. Have a great week everybody i look forward to hearing from you all
