Cool. When Brother Knudsen gives you the money we'll count it as mine
then??? You can just leave 300 on my card and put the rest on your account,
and the 300 will be my money from home. Does that sound good?

I have said yes three times. :) Did it last week.

Ahhhh that makes sense haha. :) Thanks! I'll think about keeping it a
So you haven't put my 300 in yet?

The $300 was put in last week from my account. I bought the piano for
you for blizzards when you are snowed in, giving you something to do. But
if it's more frustrating than its worth, send it home.

Is it ok if I send home the rubber piano?
Have you put the 300 from my bank to the card yet?

I'm literally sending emails to the mom, his sister, and his other
You don't have to send me beans lol

Ask his sister, you have her email to send you everyone's emails so
they receive your letters and pictures. I think they would benefit greatly

Should I send you some beans? Lol.

I've been sending Guy's family my emails. Just not Guy because I
don't have his email. I haven't made beans yet. They're expensive here.
Like 10-15 dollars a bag, versus like 2 or 3 back in Arizona.
I bought a coat on Saturday. $280 dollars, probably the nicest coat
in the entire store. My companion from Pennsylvania, who's hometown is
always in the negatives in the winter, said he's *really* jealous
of my new coat. The coat we bought in Arizona is literally just a jacket,
not a winter coat. The difference is: jacket: keep me warm until 30
degrees, winter coat: keep me alive and warm until -60 :) Apparently the
only climates in the world similar to this mission are Siberia and
Antarctica. Canada and Alaska get cold, but they don't have the jetstream
like we do, so we get much colder and much windier. :) And, about my 300
dollars, have you put it in the card yet? You don't really have to now, I'm
not going to be buying anything major... I might send a box or two home of
stuff I thought I'd use but I'm not using. That way I don't have to worry
about transfers and packing everything. I feel bad, but I'm not using the
rubber piano. It works, but it's frustrating to actually play because the
keys turn to the side and don't register so you misfire a lot. So I just
use the pianos at the church buildings. I really appreciate the rubber one!
I just don't use it because it's not super good. To get the good stuff I
guess it has to be a real one unfortunately.
I'll let Andy know when my shoes are dead haha.
Hm... Halloween... candy!!! Wait for transfers before you send
anything. Transfers are next Monday. I'm pretty sure I'll be staying, but
not 100%. I like Reeses Peanut Butter Cups and Kit Kats :)
We're teaching people, but they don't really do anything. That's
why I don't really talk about it in the weekly's, I only give people
interesting things that they'll actually read. I don't read my friends'
emails that are super long and talk about literally everything they did in
the week. I read the ones that talk about one major thing about someone
really making progress in the Gospel. Therefore I only write those kinds of

So I ran into Guy's family. His mom asked about you. I told them
all to give their sister their email and pass it along to you. They want
to get your emails. His mom asked me to ask you if you had made beans yet.
Brother Knudsen asked if you bought a coat yet and how much. He
asks all the time. Wants you to be warm. Just how cold is it now?
Andy is in the state now. We saw him yesterday. We should see him
again on Wed. He said when you need new shoes to let him know. Brother Lee
asked about you too.
Planted more flowers this week. I planted too early and had to
replace some flowers. Too hot.
Choir practice sounded amazing today!
Is there anything you would like for Halloween?
Are you teaching anyone? Who is your companion? Your Mission
President posts pictures occasionally on Facebook of his missionaries. I
really appreciate that! Make some beans. Haha!
I scanned lots of pictures today. Andy brought them over from
Belgium. Not the violin pics.
