District 16D

I was happily surprised on Saturday to receive a short email from Jameson answering some of the questions I had after his last email.

Hey! We can email today since we are all done learning on TALL. So, yes, I am the only gringo going to Culiacan out of 9 other missionaries who are Latinos. I leave at 4 am from the CCM and Elder Cordon takes a bus which leaves around 10 am so he will be without a companion for a while. I trade 3 of my worst ties for better ones. Only one had the heart message on the back but I just kept that, can I just iron those on to other ties? I wish I would have brought ugly ties too tho so I can trade those or wear them...But yeah I think I brought way too much stuff, people dont have near as much as me. I dont know how I am going to take everything. One of the other missionaries said I can be overweight but I just have to pay it and our mission pres will reimburse us?? I dont know I will try my best to be under tho. I'm sending a few pics too. (I had expressed that I was sad to not have seen his face!)

Distric 16D
Connor Nielson was in my EFY group and we found a secret message with a key to the house he stayed in which is the same house that we live in! We were in the same classroom too.

Friends from District 6
Leaving everyone was pretty difficult at the CCM. Sunday was a pretty emotional day saying bye to my district and friends. We watched a video about Joseph Smith and the Restoration before we left which was amazing, I had never seen it before. We had a testimony meeting with all the missionaries leaving. There were 69 of us who were leaving not including the Latinos. Packing was almost as difficult as saying bye to everyone.
