Josh I LOVE LOVE LOVE your haircut!!! You are so handsome and all grown up I can't believe it! When I get home you're going to be a real man. Crazy. Jake I'm glad you're still just as hairy as when I left. Please send me pictures of Lake Powell! I love Lake Powell we are going to have to go when I get home. Also, I can't believe Sabrina gets home in only two months! I'm so sad that I won't be there when she gets home. But it's going to be the best reunion when I do get to finally see her. Nicole I can't believe gets home in a month! Seriously missions do go by so fast. I've almost been out 5 months.That is so crazy to me! I'll be home in no time. But for my sake I hope it goes by slow haha.
I am now officially in Carmel, Indiana!!! I love it here! The people are so kind and so open to listening to us. This is the number one place to live in the country and so there are GIANT homes here. I have yet to see any corn. The temple is so close from where we live and I see it everyday. We are having a training this next week for all the sisters to help us get ready for the open house. Sister Lowry and I are still together and we love it! The second day we went out walking around town and ended up getting two new investigators. One is Lauren. She is so cute and is 17 years old. She said that we are her first friends here since she moved here. We've taught her a couple times and we are hoping she will progress. The ward here is great! It's not that big of a ward but has lots of potential. All the members are so willing to come out and teach with us and everyone is very missionary minded. It makes it all the better.
For the fourth of July we had so much fun! We went to the parade in the morning and watched fireworks later that night. All the missionaries got permission to stay out late to watch the fireworks so it made it all the better. We serve by all the senior companions and I love them so much! They take such good care of us. President Cleveland's mom is actually serving here. She is 82 years old and is the oldest missionary out in the field. She is my idol! She is so kind and loving. Our conversation with her the other day:
Sis Cleveland: "Do you see those flowers over there?"
US: "Yeah we do!"
Sis Cleveland: "I love them..."
US: "Yeah...they're great..."
In Taco Bell:
Sis Cleveland: "I love Taco Bell..."
So basically she loves everything haha.
I'm so glad you all had a good fourth of July! I hope you ate lots of hot dogs because I sure did! Fourth of July is my favorite holiday for sure. I love you all so much! Tell the whole fam I love them too!
P.S. This is my new address: 215 Lark Dr. Apt #4 Carmel, IN 46032
