I'm quite well and full of energy, thankfully. My companion is a-okay now, but I came down with a stomach bug and was sick all day Monday and through the night. Tuesday morning came and I was exhausted and over the nausea, thank goodness. We are both fit as fiddles now. I was so glad to get back to missionary work and out of our room, woo hoo!
To answer some of your questions:
*The weather has actually been really nice out here! It's only been in the 90's, which may seem like it'd be hot but without the humidity it's wonderful!
*President assigns a "designated driver" and she is the only one allowed to drive until he decides to change it.
*We each receive an individual debit card that's managed by someone the mission affairs office in SLC.
*I am sleeping very well.
*My favorite meal was actually one we had at my friend Cody Lords. He used to hang out at my apartment at BYU all the time. His family made us hamburgers, baked beans, fruit, and chips. It was delicious!
I'm glad you have the missionaries over often. Missionaries love to have fun and connect with the families in the wards they serve. It's so nice being able to go over to a members house and have a fun conversation and close with a spiritual thought and family prayer before we leave. It's especially nice to come home at the end of the day and have letters waiting for me in the mailbox. Neither Sister Nick or I receive many letters. I would love to have letters in my mailbox more often, hint, hint. They really help keep me going.
The people we went to visit last week and asked us to come back have been so much fun to work with. We ended up teaching the investigator along with five other of his relatives. They were all boys between the ages of 10 and 25. We gave each one of them their own copy of the Book of Mormon, which we keep in the trunk of our car, then closed the trunk and said our goodbyes. We went to get into the car, when Sister Nick realized she didn't have the keys and quickly remembered she had left the keys on the floor of the trunk next to our box of Book of Mormons. Oops! Luckily we had a member of the ward with us for the lesson and they were able to drive us home. Fun times.
One last thing before I sign off..... I got my first baptismal date!!! So exciting!!! It's scheduled for August 17th. I'll tell you more about it in my next letter home. I love you all so much, and remember to always be in a position where the spirit can be with you!
