i feel somewhat connected to my old life being here. i like it. but it makes me a little too homesick. just know that i miss all of you so much!
so heres the good word: i live in gaston SC! its a really small redneck town. they even have a chapter of the KKK here! no kidding. but the mission president somehow thinks that i am capable of opening up a new area, so he put us in the boonies. no telephone, no electricity, no furniture, no anything. but that was almost a week ago. we have everything now. we had to sleep on the floor for the first couple of nites. I'm still working on washing the smoke smell out of my clothes.I love it though. i wioll always remember serving here. my mission is sacred to me.
today is my first PDay and I think we are going to go celebrate in west columbia. i need to go shopping for ties at the salvation army, and buy a hoddie and other neat stuff.
oh check this out. my companion is elder sunia max fonua, from lehi, utah! kayelyn and denise, you have to know him. he's a big tongan football player! he knows you, so if you dont know him than you are rude.
i catch myself from time to time speaking in a southern accent. i havent started saying ya'll yet, but my accent is starting to change. i think subconciously i am doing it on purpose.
i dont know how often i'll be able to use the internet, so still write me using letters. I love you all!
