let me find what few notes i wrote down about the week. oh first off, mother, you mentioned you have a bunch of stupid questions to ask me, and well i will answer them! Just send them to me in a survey like fashion (question and then a little space to answer) and i can fill it out and send it back to you in the mail. I just don't know what you want to know and to me it's all just.... life. kortney you asked me about things i would want in a package.... i'll continue to give that some thought and get back to you on that. I figure i have a little bit of time because I don't expect any packages till my birthday in april. which means i have maybe two more weeks to give this some thought. random thought, you know those random black hairs that dad gets on his ear occasionally... I get them too. I have 3 on my right arm where the rest of it is bald. i've decided i like them.... and i'm growing them out. one is now a good inch and a half long. I will probably get rid of them in summer when i will wear a short sleeved shirt and people will actually see my arm ever. Also this week we watched a church video about physical well being in regards to the word of wisdom. and in the video was philmont, and the slide outside the lodge where we go for family reunions! I was kinda surprised to see something familiar to me in Russia... doesn't happen too often. the only other familiar thing i've seen is ONE chevy blazer. But i'm not complaining. Things like that make me miss home. even if just for a second. speaking of... packers won the superbowl?! All i can say is i'm glad favre isn't on their team anymore. otherwise packers, superbowl, in dallas would not be something i would like to miss. sigh... i'll get over it. I don't want to hear much more about it though.
Alright. so this week. we had a baptism on saturday! 13 year old son of a newly converted family. it was some work, but he finally got baptised! and our branch actually has some youth now! in stead of singular youth (his brother) So missionary life is good. But now we have a lot of work to do because we are now without any progressing investigators. we have 2 that are... well... kinda crazy... and pretty crazy. and the kinda crazy one has bad health. But just to clarify, crazy doesn't neccessarily have negativity atttached with it.
well... I'm acutally out of time this week. so i'll catch ya next week.
No superbowl stories.
love, Elder Ellis
