Well, I am still jealous of your warm weather, but it is starting to get warmer here as well. I will be so happy when I can go outside without a coat again. I am getting sick of it. But at the same time it isn't that bad here so I should stop complaining. Sounds like you are all enjoying yourselves. It is good that Megen keeps you all locked in where you should be. :)
Sounds like stuff on the farm is great.There are some things that you didn't do so much before and then you can't do them and you miss it a ton. There are lots of things that I miss that I am excited to do again. But I am ok to wait for another year or so. :)This week was really busy, because we were traveling a lot. We went to Munich for something called Mission Tour. And if you are like Blake you will think it is when we all get in a Van and tour the mission. That is not the case. Although that would be really fun. Sometimes I am jealous of the AP's and office elders who get to do that all the time. But instead of that we got to hear from one of the area 70 who talked to us about how we can improve and what we are doing great. It was an awesome meeting. I am super glad that we got to go. It took us about 3 days to get there and back, but it was totally worth it. We talked a lot about being happy in any circumstance and we choose our attitude. And I got thinking about how true that really is. Life is 1% what happens to you and 99% how you react. We choose how we want to live and what we want to do. And it is amazing that we have that choice.
We had a faschings(carnival) party with the ward this week. That was really fun. We dressed up as elders, cuz we can't really dress up too much. But it was super fun to go and have fun with the ward and the kids. It makes it really hard to learn peoples names however when they are in costume. Man it was really hard. It was kind of like Halloween, but we just came together and played games, and of course ate food. Can't be a Mormon function without food. :) One of the elders here is actually going home in 2 weeks and he his headed to Utah. He is from Hawaii (kind of) and his family is in Utah right now. So they will stay there for a year or so before going back to Hawaii. So he dressed up with a skirt thing and a hawain tie. It was fun. The other one loves batman and so he had a fun mask for that. We had a great time.
Then one of the group of elders from our distrikt had a baptism this week. They were he in Graz cuz their branch doesn't have a font... So it was really nice that we were able to go. And he is now getting ready to work towards going on a mission in a year so that is really cool as well. The work is moving forward. People need the gospel and we are here to give it to them. It really is a marvelous work. I am so glad to be a part of it.
This week will be really busy. We have an exchange with the sisters in Vienna. So that will be exciting. I am staying here in Graz and sister Bishop is headed there. Then on Saturday we have transfer calls again. It seems like they were just yesterday, but they are back again. We are hoping to stay together, but we are not sure. So I will let you know next week. Love you tons. You are always in my prayers.
