August 2, 2010

Hey All,
This week for sure went by way too fast. It is super weird. It seems like the weeks last a long time while I am actually going through them, but when I get here to this computer on Monday and it feels like I just barely emailed you it makes me a little scared.
The end of a mission feel is something else. It is something I don't think can be described. There is way too many flows of emotions. I am not sure what to feel, but oh well. You just have to go on with in though. It is also the first time I remember feeling nervous in a really long time. Nervous is not usually something that I feel. But I am feeling it right now. So we will see how it goes. It all should be well. But I am not enjoying this whole time. I was talking to some other missionaries the other day and they were asking me about going home and such, and I told them I really wish there was something I could tell them so they could prepare for when it happens to them, but I don't think there is anything. I don't think if anyone would have told me anything it would have made it any easier on me. I think you just have to do it. Everyone does and it is hard for everyone. But that said, it is super weird to know that the calendar will not turn again while I am in New York. Hope it doesn't go too fast, while at the same time, I hope it does, so I can see all of you. There are those mixed feelings again.
So here it is. I believe me and Elder Furlong are planning on going on the road trip to Diamond Bar, California on October 15th and coming back on like the 22nd. Obviously it is not set in stone yet, but I just wanted to give you a heads up about it all. It will be a blast. We have some super cool plans.
Yeah, we will wait and see what happens about the Luau, sounds interesting to say the least. Haha.
It is weird that everyone is so old. It will be crazy to see everyone all big and such.
I should be good on test strips, but just in case will be nice. Pods are good. Should be no problem.
Everything else is going well with me. Nothing too exciting happening I guess. We found a few new people to teach that live on the 2nd floor of a Subway, like the restaurant. It was funny. They should be alright.
Yesterday this lady named Maria got baptized. She is super cool. I had the chance to do her baptismal interview this last week, and it was totally the best one I have done. She is super strong, was super ready, but also is super cool and super funny. It was great. The interview was full of smiles and laughs. It was maybe the highlight of my week, getting to talk to her for a bit and find her ready to be baptized.
I have received my flight plans. You should be getting them in the mail soon. I am flying Delta, nonstop. That should be fun. I am glad it is nonstop though. I big layover would be no fun. But yeah, I think I get in a like 1or something like that. But you should be getting all of the specific details. I think I got mine on Saturday, so maybe you will get yours today. They should have been sent out together.
Well, enough about talking about that. Haha. Everything else is going well. I love you all, and I will talk to you again next week.
