KING OF PACKAGES...


Hello Everyone, Hey mom, sorry about the no email earlier. I’ve had a hectic day so far. My comp had to go to the pres. to talk about his situation and all that jazz and so I didn’t have time to email. I now have only fifteen minutes for this email. I am in the laundry room multi – tasking. (laundry and emailing) So, let me just RECAP this week… Last Tuesday night the Author, Gerald N. Lund of the Work and the Glory came and gave a great talk to all the missionaries. His talk was so good because he had all the facts about Joseph Smith. We’ve been working on our Russian none stop. Also, we had another LRC and TRC, where we talked to some people in Russian about their families and then taught a lesson. My District leader’s companion is going home because of some medical problems and we will now be in a Tri-comp which consists of Elder S, (Jersey) my comp, Elder E and me. Funny thing is if you remember right, Elder S (Jersery) wanted me to move in his room and take the top bunk but because his comp is leaving first he will end up in our room and will be the one on the top bunk. (haha) My comp will be switching missions very soon. So Elder S (Jersey) and I discussed a few things and worked a few things out like not taking over every lesson or conversation and giving others the opportunity to do their thing. It’s all good now. It’s weird how mature you get on a mission. Back in high school it would’ve caused a little drama. Tell everyone to write me. I suck at the mail game. I do love the letters and thank you for the support everyone!! I really appreciate those of you that remember me! If I have time to write letters so does everyone else! They keep you so busy in the MTC. I am having a great time!! Thanks for the packages mama! I AM THE KING OF PACKAGES! So yeah, send anything yall want. Also, thanks for keeping up on my blog and for printing it off and sending it with the box. I will send a SD card home soon. So yeah I have ten minutes left! Ugh… this is killing me I have so much to say. Tell everyone in the ward I say Kak Dela or whats up! Ugh… they give us no time to email here. Grandpa Dewey is getting married????? He’s just ploha (russian for bad or sucky or just whatever!!!) I strongly believe it’s too soon and just not a wise decision at all!! Sorry for the negativity today it’s just been a tough day so far. The day will get better because there is a devotional tonight and I am excited for that. I also wanted to say I love to sing in Russian it’s the best language ever. Oh, and yesterday the older Elders now started to speak ONLY in Russian until they leave. It’s cool, I can semi talk to them. Well, I wanted to say a lot more but I’m running very low on time. Just make sure everyone knows I love them. I’ve seen Chase a few times. He is doing really well. It bums me out when I see him though because I want to hang out but there is no such thing as hanging out. I just wanted to leave yall with a little spiritual note. I know a mission seems hard, with learning a new language (a tough one at that) and learning all that’s in Preach My Gospel in a short amount of time and then be prepared to go to a country you are unfamiliar with, but I know it’s all worth it and I am grateful for this great experience and wouldn’t trade it for anything. If you don’t take this opportunity you are giving up so much. You are giving up the best spiritual experience of a lifetime. It teaches you to work hard 24/7 and give it your best. I have done more on my mission in these past three weeks than I’ve done in a year. I go to bed dead tired but wake up with all the energy in the world, its because the Lord gives us a big boost and the energy needed to make it through. We just have to have a good attitude about it and remember to milk it for all its worth. Well I love everyone. Sorry this email was kind of boring I wish I had more time. Love Elder Chad Myrl Dewey
