It was a little different, but a lot of the same style ... it was way good just like Aunt Ossie's ... where is she from again? What part of the Philippines?
Where do you play Bingo?
The stake center in Nakaurawa.

That is a clothes rack ... highly convenient ... and wind proof thanks to it being Made in Japan ...
Do you do your ab workout every day? any running going on?
Not everyday ... only sometimes ... I'm really really fat right now.

Did you do anything to celebrate the Fourth of July?
We had an America themed music night with Sloppy-Joes and cake ... Well I made the cake, and it turned into ... I'm not really sure, it was way good though!! I followed the recipe ... it called for tofu, and no eggs ... mix that with a Japanese oven, that talks BTW, and I had no idea what I was doing.
Have you worn your new tie yet? The one that we sent you in your package?
Of course ... I wore it the next day, do you not know me?
This week was pretty good. We got transfer calls this morning!!! I'm staying here and my new companion is Yoshino Choro ... he's Nagano ... Watanabe Choro is going to Adachi, and Nelson Shimai is going to Joetsu. Everything else will remain the same here!! Its going to be a lot of fun!!
This week we just saw a couple miracles. A man that we met a couple weeks ago came to church this week unexpectedly ... he said that the missionaries invited him to come to church and so he came? ... turns out it us who invited him; we were way psyched!!
So that happened ... not much else happened this week ... it's hard to write, so I'm gonna send some pictures too!!
Father, I'm glad to hear that the sprinkling system is behaving now!! Love the home teachers for sure. Sorry that the girls are picking on you guys ... if it helps, I don't really post that much on FB. I don't really have any investigator friends right now, so it's hard to be productive ...
Mother ... my letter last week was more for humorous reading rather than a plea for more letters. I hope that you are doing well. It's good to hear that you are playing Mario cart with the grandkids ... that is always fun to hear! Thanks for the news about grandma.
Sam ... Happy Italy!!! I hope your trip is doing well!! Have fun ... take lots of pictures!!
|... pretty much my whole life ...|
Gale Storm ... sorry about the fish ... I do enjoy some good sushi, but I have no idea how to make it ... sooo I'm all for not buying it when I get home ... plus I'll really miss American food by the time that I get home ... so we'll go for that.
So pretty much the only thing that I can think of happening this week is that I got a little sick ... and, well, I may have gotten a blessing form Rezentes Choro ... and pretty much it was just what I needed to hear, it was pretty awesome ... it was full of metaphors and analogies ... it was probably the coolest blessing that I've ever gotten ... well, I'm doing great now!!! This transfer is going to be way fun!!!!
Ima send some pictures now, so I'll let you guys go!!
Love, Elder Griffiths.
PS. So I'd been putting off said blessing for a while now, and in it, God called me out on it and told me that I really did need it ... needless to say it was pretty great!
