Scottie was able to email us on the Fourth of July, such an unexpected treat! It was extra special because it was his Father's birthday. He started off by sending a picture of his "Zone" at the MTC all together that he had received by email. Here is what he had to say:


Hey :) I hope you're doing well. So I'm so crazy overwhelmed with how busy the past 3 days have been. Here are some highlights. 

My new companion is named Elder Richardson. He's from Ontario, he's district leader, and he's been here for a while....23 MONTHS! So I'm the last companion he'll ever have, that's kinda cool since he's my first (in the mission field). I hear the only reason they put almost-gone missionaries with a new kid like me is to prepare me for a leadership calling, so that could be interesting in the future. 

Our apartment is pretty good, it's actually a lot nicer than a lot of the other areas around us. We do go all the way out to Kinnecot like when we drove, I'm in the Magna Stake for this transfer. 

We have P-Day today because it's the fourth of July so that's fun, I went shopping, got some food and laundry stuff. We get 100 dollars a month for all of our food, haircuts, supply needs, so I was buying the cheapest brands haha. I'm gonna miss Tropicana and Ben and Jerry's. 

We've stayed really busy and I'm picking up on the Spanish well, I can't believe how fast time is flying though. Staying this busy, you definitely barely have time to think.

I will be on a bike, my regular P-Day will be Mondays (today was weird because of 4th of July activities). 

We saw a parade this morning and we'll probably go to a Member's party tonight and get food and such, which would be fun!

The building right next to our apartments is English wards (congregations), we go to a building down the road that's got the Spanish branch (a smaller congregation). 

On Sundays, my companion and I serve as translators in that branch! How cool is that? 



P.S. Happy 4th of July!
