Oh my goodness my days just blur together but it is so beyond amazing here and I'm so sad to be leaving in less than a week! I love my district and my zone and everyone!!!! it’s going to be so hard to say goodbye to all of them. So last p-day after I sent my email I walked out of the building and guess who I ran into............The one and only Elder Wilsher!! And since then I have seen him quiet a bit more and talked with him lots. Its super cool I have seen two of the elders that were on the district they work here at the MTC Elder Christensen is the announcer and I'm not sure what the other elder does! I busted my watch again while pulling on one of my modbods it only lasted till Saturday but I really appreciate that you tried to fix it!! Sister Despain is an angel she had an extra one and she gave it to me so now I wear a bright green watch! Our service time is Saturday night and we have to set up all the chairs for Sunday and we do it at the same time as all of the Polynesian missionaries and it’s so cool cuz they all talk to each other in their language and a couple elders started chanting the haka! (soo coool) I learned something super cool this week I had to use my position as STL (sister training leader) to help out the Sisters in the other District and of course I did what I always do and took it upon myself and tried to figure out how to fix it and one of our teachers pointed out to us that we don't have to fix it there is no way we can totally fix it and that is what the atonement is for I had never thought about it like that!I would really love it if you guys could send me Bethany’s email so that I can email her too and if you could let Chrissy know that I emailed her as well as the family that would be great!! I can’t even remember what all has happened this week! I'm trying to take more pictures but it’s really hard because you can’t take pictures in most of the areas we are cuz of copy right issues and taking pictures of people without their permission (silly America!) But I do have a few of our group and will get more on Sunday (we get to walk to the Temple) I’m so sad but not at the same time! The temple is closed until January so we don’t get to go while we are here but it means we don’t have to be ready to go before 6:30am. I’m so scared to wash and dry my clothes cuz everyone around here keeps saying that if you don’t want to have your stuff shrink don’t dry it! But I need clean clothes so we will see how that goes! I have my travel plans and Sister Boatright is the travel leader and so she tells me I will be second in command (we shall see how well that goes) I finally saw Elder Pronk this morning we went to breakfast later than we normally would because its p-day so we were cleaning our room this morning and while I was eating someone came over and was just standing right by the table not talking so I looked up and there he was!! It was so good to see him we talked about life for a bit and then he went his own way and said hopefully we will see each other again before you leave and be able to get a picture with him and me. I have yet to see Elder Jones the newbie just came in yesterday and neither Elder Wilsher or I have seen him! Last night I got a package slip so I had to go down to the mail room to pick it up and I could not for the life of me figure out who would have sent me a package and when I got there the lady handed me a Krispy Kreme box and that was when I got super confused and then I looked at who it was from...........Sister Jones!!!! So cool. Please tell her thank you very very much and that my district and teachers loved it very much!! Don’t worry I didn’t share them all I had like 4 not at the same time but ummm they were goood! I don't know what else to tell you all but I love you lots and lots and lots!!  Sister Cahoon
