Clair's email this week made us smile. We could just picture her telling us in person these things. It was a short one, but she sent photos!! Finally! We're so happy. Thoughts from Clair:
- I like pineapple! It's one food that I have to eat and I like it now (apparently she didn't like it before).
- Please get a good food storage ready. The Liahona for September had some really important messages in it.
- My area is Nueve de Octubre which is 9th of October and I just realized that that is October 9th, which is your birthday Mama. This is a cool coincidence!!!!
- Crocs are doing so well here. Mind you, I don't think they are name brand. But they are doing so stinking great! hahaha (I guess she bought some when she got there or something. She didn't leave here with a pair).
- Also, I think I like coconut too! (she definitely didn't like coconut before she left)
- I was super scared for Sister Norton to leave but right now, after writing President Williams, I feel pretty calm and I know everything will be okay.
- I want the talk by Elder Holland April 2013, "Help Thou My Unbelief."
- We went with Sis Williams to get her haircut so Sis Norton could explain what she wanted and it's a short little bob thing and I LOVE IT. I was so tempted to say me too please. Oh it's so cute.
- What does Cale's hair look like?
- I went to Lima! We were able to go to the temple real quick and it was awesome! Also I was worried about whether I would be able to stay in this mission because I told Sister Norton and Elder Harper that my setting apart blessing said that my influence would extend beyond the borders of my mission. They both thought that I'd have visa problems and go to another mission. BUT, that won't happen because I got my official card and everything!
I need to finish sending pictures. Sorry for this lame email. It was a crazy fast week and tomorrow I find out who my new companion is! This could be a slow week, I don't know though.
I do know that I love you so so so so much and I sent letters with Sister Norton to send to you guys from the States. I love you!
