Well, I’m sorry to hear that Grandpa is still in the hospital. I can’t imagine what it’s like and it makes me sad that I can’t be for him but I am keeping him in my thoughts and prayers every night and day. Make sure to give him a hug for me! Drew, I freaking envy you so much that you got to go to that Coldplay concert! Holy balls! haha. That looked so sick! You have to send more pics and a video. I Looks like you guys had a great time! Great pics of you dunking Drew! You better be freaking good at dunking because you’re an ape man! Not going to lie though I’m coming home ripped Drew. I have a massive workout that’s going to get me cut beyond belielf! haha. Love you man!
Really nothing has happened this week. It’s been such a normal week. We get up, eat, study, eat, study, eat and study! We’ve just been having fun and going a little crazy in our spare time. I am super stoked to get out of the CCM! I wont be able to email next week because I will be leaving for Arequipa on Tuesday morning. We leave the CCM at 2 am to get to the airport for our flights to our different missions. I have had a great time here and have learned so much about myself and the gospel. More than I thought I could cram into my brain in such a short time. I have loved my district and all my teachers. They have all been so cool and probably some of my favorite people! I have tried to be the kind of person to help keep everyone positive about the language and the work. I know it is really important to put those gifts that I’ve been given to work. I have realized it just doesn’t come easy to a lot of people and so I want to help them if they are struggling. My teachers here are pretty impressed about how fast I’m learning the language and even when I can’t focus. They don’t know how I do it! haha I definitely feel the crazy energetic side of me everyday and can’t wait to put it to work in the field where I’m not cooped up in a classroom all day. Hey but what else is new! I love keeping active and being out there.
I love you guys! So keep on keepin on and live life to the fullest! Hey and 5 weeks down! What ?!?!?
Miss and love you tons!
Elder Simonsen hahaha jk (I just can’t call myself that).
Love you guys!
