A Better View

Photos from the climb up the cell tower.

Good news on Rob's return to San Diego in this week's email: "Heyyyyy! Happy P-day! Things here are pretty good! So just an update: President Herrington has decided to give me 3 weeks early. I think I’ll be able to go home March 2nd, which is cool. Patience and humility is the name of the game. Other than that the work has been going all right. We committed two people to come to church on Sunday but none showed up, which was kind of a bummer. :P But we’ve been teaching some really cool people and hoping to see some success in terms of baptisms for the  month of February! Hopefully all goes well.  It’s been really cool to be able to see Johnathan again. I’m glad things worked out the way they did, just wish I had a better apartment is all. Haha. The companionship is doing a lot better, but unfortunately we have a gnarly cockroach problem which is REALLY gross. So sick of roaches, I can’t even begin to tell you. I guess Dad is used to that though. Haha. I cleared out ALL the cupboards and wiped them down and then sprayed all the cabinets all over with this stuff called Permetherine? I don’t know if you’ve ever used that stuff, but I guess it’s supposed to work :/. Hopefully we can get it working. We got our A/C fixed :D and we transformed the beds into bunk beds. Haha! So I’ve been able to get some good nights’ sleep, which is AMAZING. It is also nice that Elder Kuru is the new AP. He’s a good kid and deserves it for sure. They have a baptismal goal of 240 for the year, which is pretty impressive considering we have had 90-100 this year. This week we ended up dong the hike like we said, and I ended up climbing up a cell phone tower. Got some good pictures! I have to go. Just know I love you guys and miss you a lot. I’ll be praying for you. Thanks for everything. Tell Baxter I’ll be home soon and that I love him!
PS: Tell Trisha I have heard of banana ketchup, but haven't had any. Sounds different. I'll look for it."
