How's it going? Sorry I haven't emailed for a while I was in Green Bay last week for stake conference and wasn't able to email. I don't have a lot of time to email today either because we gotta go somewhere. But I'll just catch you up on as much as I can right now. Well if you haven't heard, last week while we were in Green Bay I had to go to the emergency room because I was having a really hard time breathing from being sick and was able t get the meds that I need to get better. As a result to that I am actually feeling the best I have in the last three weeks today which is pretty exciting because I'm really sick of being sick. Transfers are this Wednesday and I am staying in Escanaba for another transfer which is another six weeks and I'm excited to stay here too because this is the best area in the mission. I am however getting a new companion which I'm really nervous for really hoping it's one I can stand being with for six weeks or longer. We set a baptismal date with one of our investigators for October 23rd and I'm really excited to help her prepare for it and to watch her life just change dramatically. Well that's all I can think of updating you on and I'll let you go and hope to hear from you next week. Tell your kids that I love them and miss them and I'll talk to you next week!

How are things going with you? Do you know if you're having a boy or a girl yet? My guess is a boy! How's everything else been going?
Well I'm doing good here. I got your cookies! They were so good, thank you so much! I should be sending you a letter this week. But yeah like I said I'm doing ok. I've had pneumonia which is not fun at all but I'm doing everything I can to get better from that. It's tough though because it doesn't let me sleep at night. Last night was actually pretty good because I slept for an hour and a half which felt really good. Our investigators here are all doing great and they are all still progressing and getting there. There is one member here though who needs everyones prayers, who is Tommy Chicago. A couple days ago someone stole his credit card and spent over $3,000. He has been through so much in his life and he's just trying to understand why he's going through so much. We've been working on getting him to the Temple and the closer he gets, Satan gives all he's got to stop him from going. So please keep him in your prayers as we get him closer to the Temple.
Well that's all that I can think of that's new here in Escanaba and I'll write you a letter this week and put anything that I may have forgotten in it. Thank you so much for everything especially those COOKIES ha ha. Love you!
