hey everyone! 

wow it has already been a month since i have been a missionary! that is so crazy to me. i feel like i just barely left. this week was a little bit more rough, but it also had some pretty great highlights. on tuesday, elder yao was sick and elder fryar hurt his knee the day before playing football, so they both stayed in the apartment while elder broadhead and i went on an exchange. we spent most of the day in his area, and then taught someone in my area right before coming home. then the next day elder yao was feeling better, but since i still dont really know my area that well, he and elder broadhead went on an exchange together while i stayed with elder fryar. it sucked! haha i was so bored! but on thursday, elder bednar came to the temple site stake center and gave a devotional! it was so nice. elder yao and i brought two of our investigators along with us. it was a really cool experience. after the devotional it started to rain, and i mean rain! i was sitting out in the rain waiting for our taxi to come pick us, and i was drenched. it was kinda fun tho :) 

Friday and saturday went well tho, and i found out that i am going to have my first baptism this saturday!! i am so pumped! her name is L----- and she is 18. it is going to be great. i was a little nervous we would have to push her date back tho, because we needed her to come to church yesterday, but when we woke up it was pouring, so i was pretty nervous she wouldn't come. i guess if it rains here on a sunday, no one goes to church. and its true, there was no one there yesterday. but she came! haha i was so happy. then this morning elder broadhead and i woke up early so that we could go to the temple site to play basketball. it was super fun. i havent eaten anything interesting yet, but this morning i was making french toast, and when i went to crack one of my eggs it was straight black inside. it smelled awful! 

that sounds like a pretty rough flight! but im sure it will be worth it. that is cool you got to spend some time with grandpa and grandma and them. im sure it was fun. i was pretty sad i missed halloween, looks like everyone had a good time and had some sweet costumes. thanks mom for putting the package together! you have no idea how nice that will be to have. travel safe and have fun in india! love and miss you so much!
