Thanks for all of your letters this week! It has been an interesting week. First of all, me and elder Benard have the second oldest car in the mission and apperently church HQ called our mission and told us that the mission had to get rid of 12 cars. Since ours was the second oldest we had to drive to the mission office and give up our car. We did it about 3 h ours ago and me and elder Benard are pretty ticked. We are pretty much hosed in our area without a car. Its a really bad area to ride bikes and there are very few people in our area that are in reasonable walking distance. We have buses in our area but there super unreliable and dont really go directly close to very many people.We get to share a car with the other elders in our ward but it really is going to be a hastle since we live 10 miles away from them anyway. So were not very happy right now, but I guess will just have to figure it out. But anyway Saturday was a pretty cool day. We drove down to washington DC area to the the church building right next to the temple where we met with the DC north and south missions. We got there really early, so we could talk with all of our friends. It was good to catch up with my MTC companions and the missionaries I came out with. The crazy thing though was that apperently my MTC companion who went home, came out last transfer! I was like the only one in my group who didnt know becasue im on the opposite side of the mission. But it was so sweet to see him again. It was a really fun conference, I saw elder thomas but did not have a chance to talk to him. Elder Ballards remarks to us were pretty good. He told the missions that we pretty much need to be baptizing more, which was interesting. He talked a lot about talking to everyone we see though out the day. He talked about some other things, but those were the main take aways from it. Aoife is good to go on the 31st for baptism. She is the best! We have some other new people were teaching, including a jehovas witness kid who is 23 that says he has found loop holes in his religion haha (imagine that). So thats been pretty good. Its going to be a very interesing week trying to figure out how to get places without the car. So hopefully I dont get really frustrated by it and figure things out with elder Benard. Sounds like you guys have some fun things planned. I hope you guys enjoy your last whole summer without me haha. Anyways I love you guys and hope you all have fun, im looking forward a lot to getting your package! Have a great week!
