Well, sorry about last week. Due to some choices my companion made, which in turn includes me we did not get home until 66. And we are not supposed to use the Internet after six. So as I struggled to decide what to do, break the rule and email my family, or keep the rule and not email, I decided to not use email. My companion did however. So sorry that is what happened. But just so you can know, everyone in my house this past week was really sick, except me!!! I was not sick, and don’t think I will be.  And I’d like to think that is because I didn’t use the Internet.  We only left the house like 3 days.
Well, today was actually transfers so I am in a new area, Boatan.  I am actually not sure where I am... no one knew. So I guess I am lost. It is close to Antônio Bezerra, I think. I am here with Elder Mangum, an American. But I know very little about him at this point.
Well, for the last few weeks it has been raining a lot... I got a number of my books wet at my transfer so I will try and dry them out over the next few days. Now, when I say raining... I mean raining, like flooding the streets. My shoes, well, one pair, is soaked all the way through because of today. You can only get so wet before you just start walking through the half a foot or so of water without even caring. Haha
My kidney stone situation should be all “fixed” now.  I was supposed to have my second surgery last Wednesday, but we had more troubles with the insurance so it was delayed until Friday.  I was only there for 4 hours or so, so it went pretty fast.  The second surgery was to remove a tube they left in the path between my kidney and bladder, because the stone did so much damage.
Well, I am a little down. This past transfer was hard because we had something happen five of our six weeks so it made working really hard. With this new transfer I am still junior when many of my group are like way out in front. Two became Zone Leaders, one of which went from junior to Zone Leader in one transfer, he skipped senior. Elder Eyre (sp?) went senior and trainer this transfer, and then I haven’t done much of anything. So my hope is I can get it all figured out this transfer.   
I think I have gotten all the letters from you guys, and I wrote grandpa last week. By the way, can you get me Jamie’s and Cameron’s addresses?

Have you gotten back the first package you sent, or you think it won’t get back?

I love you all and miss you all dearly. I am doing and feeling much, much better now. What is going on back at home with everyone?!? Well, until next week!!! Bye!!!
