Sounds like everything is good there and like you had a great thanksgiving,  Yes, I missed the football and the turkey and the stuffing and pie and pretty much everything but we had an ok thanksgiving also.  We made premade stuffing and mash potatoes, of course it wasn't the same but it was still good.  I forgot to take pictures of the apartment sorry next week na lang.  That's great that grandma was there.  You guys watched youtube videos? what? what about the dog show? Macy Day parade?  The riding sounds good also. 

Dang ASU, I thought they were going to have a good season. Awesome news about DV kicking the trash out of Hamilton, they were probably getting pretty prideful.That is way sad about the plane and of the family gosh that would be a terrible thanksgiving.  I couldn't deal with that if that was my life, dang

Well I don't have too much to say but we just had a zone activity and it was so stupid; we played jeopardy and then we played Murder in the Dark.  Gosh, it was stupid we didn't even get to change into normal clothes.  The thing is... there are the falls that I went to in my first area like 20 minutes away on a bus ride but nope all we did was play jeopardy.   Some people are no fun. We did play basketball but most of the elders left and didn't play, really what is wrong with the world.

The work is good, we just has stake conference and one of the ward missionaries that works with us is deaf. It's  kinda a challenge but we usually just have him say the prayer.  Anyway, in conference he spoke and it was awesome.  Of course he had a translator but it was an awesome talk.  We had 5 investigators at church, which is very good. but that is it for the week.

Hey momma bear and family,

Everything is good, my area is great and the comp is great also.  We do pull some pranks on each other for example; fireworks while showering ,scaring them when they get home,  zapping each other with the mosquito swatter. and so on and so forth; but it keeps things fun. I will send you some pictures of the new house.
We have a couple investigators who are fun. the people here are awesome.

That is sad about the lady getting murdered, its nice to see everyone get together and serve each other; we need more of that in the world.
ASU is stupid.

love you all and I'm grateful for all of you, happy thanksgiving!!

Hey there family,

So the story is I was chomping on some sugarcane and it was a tough piece.  My tooth just crumbled, (just the old cap from before) but now I fit in with the people here so its no big deal.  I don't know about fixing it, I kinda want to but I don't know.  I don't want them to put something on it that will be hard to remove or fix when I get home.  I don't know.
I got transferred to Handumanan;  its close to the city kinda on the south side.  I  really miss being back in my last area and the baptisms we had for this week.  But I gotta say it is awesome here.  We actually have a ward of about 130 people who come to church.  It feels more like an american ward; it is fun to have everyone is so helpful.  We have two wards, we have one and then we live with 2 other elders who have the other.  Elder Simmons from Maryland and Elder Ombega who is filipino cover the other ward.   My comp is awesome he is Elder Tannagan and he is filipino.  He is new in the mission.  They are all awesome and the wards is awesome too so it was easy to adapt.  We have had a lot of fun already.

I am good and excited to have Christmas here.
Sounds like all is good back home, tell everyone hello for me.
Congrats on football Chris, tell Connor no one wants to be a hawk...only a tiger!!
Dana, awesome week with dance...keep on going.

Thein congrats!  I am so glad that Katie and Aaron had a good trip. 
Don't worry about me family, Elder Heywood is doing good

peace love love love

Sounds like a good week though...dang ASU.  Hopefully they will catch a break finally, who is the quarterback? 

The caves, you took the scouts to the caves?  Good old Peppersacue caves, I miss the outings with the scouts.  All those experiences have helped a lot.  I will never forget them.  Scouts was just one of the many helping blocks for the mission; there are a ton more blocks.

Good to hear about the ward missionaries, Nathan is the man,  He is probably having a blast with those people; other then the Philippines that would probably be my 2nd  choice of where to go.

I love these people and I love the work it is a amazing work and a amazing feeling when you see it change some one.

I sent a few pictures from everyday life in the mission here in my area.

If you look past the grime, notice...

Cutest kids ever

You guys coming?

I might be in a different area next week.  I will let you know it will be very hard to leave these people very hard.  I don't want to leave them; but that is not my choice.  I will let you know.  Tell everyone hi for me.
