Letter Received September 25, 2013

Dear Mom & Pop,
Well what a week it's been!  Full of rain, brownies, bike riding, move ins, funeral, and correlation.  This Friday we were over at Greg's house and we were reading with him on his porch and the sky kept getting darker and darker and it was only 4:30...we left his house and as soon as we rounded the corner I felt a few drops and said "uh oh..we gotta go.."  Next was raining pretty we booked it to the Gardner's which was a few streets down and as soon as we got on the porch it was a super hard downpour.  Barely missed that.  Saturday was Brother Tony Mensah-Daku's funeral.  He was from Togo which is next to Ghana.  He had a condition with the veins behind his lungs and they basically shut down and he was home alone asleep when he suffocated to death.  His 8 year old son came home when his dad wasn't there to pick him up at the bus stop.  The door was locked and no one would answer so the police and apartment management came to open the door and Harrison ran in to find his dad and they couldn't wake him up.  He had been dead for about 2 hours.  Very sad!  I swear I'm bad luck.  Elder Giblette crashed on his bike :(  We were going down this super steep windy road and you know me I take stuff like that fast and lay my bike down in turns.  He was following at his own pace which I guess was a little too fast and he couldn't quite navigate the turn so the bike went down.  He slid on his arms, belly down and the guardrail post was what stopped him.  He's alright...just a little sore.  Sister Fletcher and Sister Chapa are super awesome :)  Sister Chapa just came out this last transfer and Sister Fletcher goes home in November!  The ward loves them..And loves feeding them.  They had the 2 meal calendars passed around (ours and theirs) last Sunday and they ended up getting 4 dinners and we had 0.  Luckily the Unklesbay's fed us last minute as did the Martins.  Good eats!  Sister Unklesbay made chicken that was rolled and coated in BBQ chips!  Oh my gosh, so good!  The Martins made these super good steak taco's with homemade tortilla chips (she's from Chile).  Then again on Saturday we had...Outback Steakhouse!  It was Elder Giblette's birthday so we treated ourselves :)  Soooo good!  We have 9 investigators but only 4 or 5 are being or staying solid.  We keep getting a ton of media referrals which is good.  Hope all is well back home!  It is so awesome being out here!  It's already October!  Time flies.  My new companion is so awesome!  We talk all the time and get along really well.  He's a great guy.  As you heard earlier ya we have Sisters.  We make a bomb team.  Hopefully the weather stays cooled down now.  I miss the Temple!  Thanks for the love and support guys!  I love and miss you!  Ta ta for now.
