I do look forward to your emails. I am very grateful for them. Elder Peihopa's ribs are almost at full health but still are pretty sore some days. I love the cabin, I was thinking about it just the other day. Too bad I couldn't be there. It was pretty weird to think how I will be there next year. Time flies. I hope the hike out goes well. Good luck, have fun, be safe. Now I sound like mom. :) Hopefully Duke will make it. It is fun with a lot of snow, but it is also a little more work it seems.
Things are going really well. Michaela has had a good week. We had some more lessons with her this week but one of the times we went to see her wasn't exactly for a lesson. She asked us to meet her at this park thing next to the water, in Panmure Stake. I had never been there before. She also posted on the YSA Facebook page and invited anyone who would like to to come. She told us to wear our Sunday best (which is pretty easy for us, everyday all day). We were helping her to do a practice photoshoot. She is trying to start a photography business and she has her first wedding this week so she wanted us to do a practice. We had 4 Elders there and a couple of guys from the ward. It was a lot of fun. I told her that I was a model before the mission - everybody has to save up some how. I am not sure she believed me. :P Things are going well with her. We have the baptism all set up for this up coming Saturday. She decided to invite the whole ward so we are hoping for a good turn out. We have a ward activity Saturday afternoon and then her baptism in the evening so we are going to go and remind people again. Everything is going so smoothly but one thing with the week of baptism is that something always comes up, some sort of obstacle or concern that we have to work through. Nothing has happened yet and I hope nothing does. But it might just be my lack of faith. I just have a feeling something is going to happen.
We had a pretty funny experience talking with some people in the city the other day. I was on trade-off with Elder Berger (Westpoint, UT) and we were walking downtown on Queens Street. There was some type of concert going on. We later found out that it was the group 1975, I don't know them but there was a large line of girls wearing only black clothing and very little clothing in general. Probably about 100-150 in line. We were just walking by when one of them asked us if we were Christian so we started to answer. They asked us to pray that they would get in because they were stuck outside. We went to answer again and then someone asked us about polygamy. There were just too many girls with too many questions. (Some things never change.) We started talking to all of them at once. Elder Berger is a stud and it ended with us clarifying some things about what we believe and then a few of them asked us to marry them so they could live in the states. I told Elder Berger that he should totally do that and ended up on the other side of the conversation, me and all the girls were pretty much trying to convince Elder Berger to marry them. He agreed if they came to church and all them said yes. No one came but it was still a pretty funny experience.
The sister had my camera all week so this is all I have to send home. Sorry.
