Other stuff

Hello Mom,

A couple other things before I go.

We don't have to buy bikes here, so you can take that money off. To be
honest, I'm not really making any purchases here. Definitely take a lot of
money off the debit card. I really don't need a ton of money on it. I'd
stick to what the mission call packet said for what the recommended amount
to keep constant on it is.

Also, I don't need to obtain a local driver's license, so how would I send
home the documents?

You can give the Moore's my mailing address, to send me the calendar. Did
they get the calendar? I'm super excited for it!

Also, I love writing in my journal each night, especially with my fountain
pens, and I was wondering if you could send me some orange ink. If you look
on amazon, you can type in "Noodler's Ink Orange" and I think there's a
color called Habanero or something, that is orange. If there isn't
Habanero, just send me an orange ink from Noodlers, on amazon. It should be
about 12 dollars. If it's more, don't get it haha. :) Thank you so much! I
may ask you to send me some other colors in the future too. Like blue, or
even green. I already have black and purple. Trust me, they're not going to
have an ink shop up here. It's a super niche thing. :) Seriously thank you
so much.

The care packages really do lift my spirits when I receive them. It can get
kind of gloomy sometimes since I'm not in a super familiar area, and I'm
not around all of my friends from back home. Also, not listening to my
favorite music is interesting. I totally miss it, but I know its for the
best. I definitely can feel the Spirit really strongly, more strongly than
before, even though my music wasn't necessarily really bad or dark. Just
not having all of my winding down and destressing and recharging tools from
before is interesting. I'm working on finding new ways to have fun and keep
my spirits up. Receiving care packages helps a ton. :) It's a great thing
my first area really is a great one, and my companion and I mesh. Even
then, it's still a challenge I'm learning from.

I hope you have a great week. I love you Mom. :) I miss you. And I look
forward to talking on Sunday. If you want, you could do a party with Ryan
and Julia and the kids. Just make sure to let me know which Skype account
you'll be using. I'll probably be on mine from back home.

How's Courtney and Crystal doing? How is the room doing? Has the piano been
moved in there yet? What has been their attitude since I've left? What
about Dad? What about the ward?

Love you,
Elder Westlake
