Short Letters

Emails are pretty short this week. Mine is edited, I took out a paragraph that is personal in nature. It was just one paragraph though. He must have been short on time.

Hi Ma,

It goes well here, this morning I got a phone call and I just found out that I will be here in Fort Worth for the next 5 or 6 weeks, this transfer might be shorter because they dont want transfers to fall on christmas. I will be staying with my two companions which means I will keep being district leader and I will keep training.

I run into at least one crazy person a week, it is really funny sometimes, this week a guy commented how if God loved us we wouldnt be on Bikes, so I waved and told him to have a good day, he turned around and apoligized for what he said.

I dont know if I will be here for Christmas, but I would like some heat pads, and home made cookies are always nice. I use that cookbook often, I made mayonnaise yesterday…. trying to make a coleslaw, it didnt end up tasting as planned, I think the egg was bad. To be honest the greatest thing about Christmas will be talking to yall!

I love you so much! I hope your week has less stress, to much stress is a bad thing, hold a cat, it should take care of the stress, jajajaja!

Hey Father,

SEMA looks like it was awesome, yes I want to go next year!

This week wasnt super crazy, I found out I will be here up until Christmas though with my two companions!

I am teaching awesome people! There is a guy named German who painted classic cars in a body shop, and now paints private helicopters, we are teaching him and his family! They almost came to church this Sunday but have promised to come to the next! I see a ton of potential in this family!

In the beginning of the week it rained pretty hard, there is a dirt road under construction that filled with water and became a river a foot deep, so we biked in it to get to a investigator who lives about halfway up the street.

I saw this cool guy juggling fire during our travels, I had seen him before, I think he does this just for fun every night,

I cooked bacon wrapped chicken on Monday night, that was really good but might have messed with my stomach for the next few days…

I will look forward to the package, good thing I didnt get transferred! I really appreciate it, and I plan on sending a package home sometime as well!

I hope you have a good week, I would “take car” as you say but I only have my trusty bike.

Love Elder Grant Hagen
