Hey Fam Bam!
Alright, I get to email you again to let you know about my new area–but once again have to do it in like three seconds, but first, Alaska is so beautiful and I love it!
Yesterday was probably the longest day of my life–we were awake for about twenty hours straight–talk about making good first impressions–NOT! But I think/hope they all know I was just exausted and sick. 🙂
Anyway, I’ll be serving in FAIRBANKS! I’ll be in the YSA Ward!!! Can you see how God’s been preparing me?? Yep, I sure can. ALSO, I’ll be learning Chinese! Yeah, I thought it was a joke when he told me, but there are a lot of people in that ward who are chinese, so I get to learn some! I’ll still be mostly english, but with a little mix! Looks like I’ll be able to talk to the Wardle’s a bit when I get home! Maybe… 🙂
LOVE YOU LOTS!!
