(the computer I'm on can't take my camera for some reason. Sorry) What the heck!!! Since when does Robin Williams commit suicide and nobody tell me about it?!?!?! He was the greatest actor ever. #hewillbemissed #Genie #Flubber #PeterPan #childhoodhero FAMILIA!!!!!! Howz y'all doon? We ended up not having a baptism last week because the mom of our investigator call the cops and had the guy arrested 4 hours before the baptism for no real reason. What a shocker. I was stunned. Can you believe I've been out for almost a month now?!??! Holy guacamole! I'm getting so old! It's weird to think that I have 9 months left, now 8. But I still feel new. Which is nice, because then I'll come home and be like... WHAAA???? I was just barely home! I got interviewed by Prez this week. He thinks I'm a hoot. There's always a plethera of missionaries who line up in the hall because all they hear inside our interviewing room is pure laughter. We're quite hilarious together. Randomly, President said that if I died today, he has no doubt that I would go straight to the celestial kingdome. Wow. That make me feel all good inside. :) He also said taht the PTC ward is begging to have me back. I''m praying that'll come true! I LOVE YOU MORE THAN NICHOLA TESSLA LOVES ELECTRICITY!!!! #sciencejoke #nailedit #fistpump Mom: Holy cannoli!!! You got to hold a wallabe??? Ahck! I'm so jealous. It's so crazy Brandon's engaged.... I'm glad I came back to Georgia. I love it here. The humidity, the bugs, the Hardings, all of the above. :D Poor Baylie. I miss those kids. Do you get to see them much? HAVE A BLAST IN MONTANA!!! And tell all those fools (people) to write me!!!! Dad: So sad that you can't go to Australia. Sounds like you had a good Sunday. So cool that Travis got called to Chile! He'll do great!!!!! I love you! How do you like being an empty nester? Jennifer: Thanks so much for all the pictures! He's so cute! And so are the twins! Little Harley and Little Marie. ;D Dace Face looks so happy. I miss him and you! And Brian too! Michael: Thanks for the email. Haha. I'm glad you felt like a ninja! I worked hard on getting it up there! I burned the bottom of my feet so bad that I got a couple blisters. Next time, I'll wear shoes. Kevin: You farming STUD!!!! Ya, you look way tan! It's so cool that you're working on a farm! Or ranch. Or whatever. It's a farm. I can't wait to hug you like a bear and eat some gummy worms. I'll even play a video game with you when I come back. Ha! Just kidding. I probably won't. But it's the thought that counts. Brooke: How's the hand. :) Everyone in my Dunwoody ward found out I'm a twin and when they sarcastically ask if you broke your arm too, it gets really awkward. Haha. I miss you past the moon and back! Randomness...... A mosquito landed on my arm and I was in ninja mode and I karate chopped it. Well, it was already full of blood, so blood splattered everywhere. I'm amazed at how full a little bug can get. I don't know who's blood was in it, but it was nasty. *a senior couple from PTC is coming today and taking us out to lunch. They missed me. :) *I slept walked last night and found myself in our living room, just standing there. How creepy is that???? What if Manzer woke up and saw me in the door way??? * Manzer's family mailed me some candy and a necklace. It was so nice and thoughtful. *I ate a cookie for the first time this week. They're nice to have every once in a while. Also, I amazed everyone at Bishop Abamonte's home at how much I can eat. I can eat like a horse! They were all like, EAT EAT EAT EAT!!!! I'm buying popcorn today. I already have pickles and oranges, now I just need a movie and it's a bunch of my favorite things together!!!!!!!! I LOVE YOU! TIL NEXT WEEK!!

This week, we were able to contact a referral! Her name is Diceya. She went onto Mormon.org and referred herself because she heard that Mormon's have good geneology records. We went over to teach her (she lives an hour and fifteen minutes away from us!!!) and she's so prepared! She was talking about how there is a pattern of "anarchy" all throughout time, so we told her we call it APOSTASY. She was even like, "Have you noticed, that all the churches around here are teaching their own doctrine and not the true doctrine?? They only teach was fits their life!" HAHAHAHA!!! She's so prepared! We have to baptize this lady! She's an animal lady, so we visit her outside on her porch in her rocking chairs. :) I absolutely LOVE my Branch Mission Leader and Branch President!! Ray is our Branch Mission Leader and President Stockinger is our Branch President. They are sooo funny. It also helps that they are really good friends with everyone. President Stockinger has told me so many times that he feels like he's known me forever. I haven't even been here for 2 weeks. They always ask me questions about things that happened months before I got here because they forget that I'm new to the area. It's so funny. :) I'm so glad you all got to meet Ryan!! Isn't he the greatest! He's going to be a General Authority one day! So, update on my hand!! It's already looking better! The swelling has gone down, so now, I can feel my bone. If you start at my middle knuckle and start rubbing to my wrist, you feel it drop down and then jump up. It's pretty crazy. It's feeling better, but it still hurts a little to use it. It's green bruising now, so that's good! Everyone in our branch calls me "Crip." It's pretty hilarious! I did get hit in the hand with a basketball though... A young elder thought I was looking at him and that I would block it, but I wasn't, so I didn't. I got teary-eyed because it hurt so bad. He felt horrible...good. Haha. :) JK. My Doctor appointment is in Knoxville today at 3, so I'll get the final results then. I'm pretty excited. :) I love you more than all the books there are in the Library of Congress!!! Mom: I need to call Sister Griffin after my appointment to let her know what's going on. I'll tell her to call you and let you know too. I won't be able to get back on after because I'm trying to be exactly obedient. Kiss Dace Face for me!! Dad: WE HAVE TO GO TO AUSTRALIA TO SEE YOUR FRIEND SCOTT!!! I'm willing to help out in any way I can. I just really want to go! :) Did the moose chase you?? I bet you guys were booking it out of there! I'm so glad you helped Ryan answer some gospel questions! He was so prepared. He's great! How long did your camp-out last? Where did you go? I love you! Kevin: I want you to email me pictures!! Especially of you being a farm-boy! Michael: Did you fall off the face of the earth!? Email me. It's been two weeks now... I want to know what's going on in your life. Jen: For sure I want pictures of Dace's 3rd birthday party! Thanks for sending me a quick email! Erin: I'm still going to be sending you emails because I'm in the habit. How is Lunkwoody? I know that's not what the name is, but I cannot, for the life of me, remember what it's called? Where is that? Is it above Atlanta? How far is that from PTC? How is it being a trainer??? I don't think I'll ever train... I would corrupt that poor missionary! Hahaha.
