Well, I'm probably behind the times already when I say this, but I'm glad that boat racing was fun, and that the parent night was endured. Thanks for sending me pictures! (By the way, do the Fronks really not get pictures? Should I send some more with Joel if I get the chance?) I run into friends more often than I expect, but not as much as I hope to. I'm finding more people I know all the time. It's exciting to see so many friends united in doing the Lord's work.

Well, I'm not sure exactly what to tell you about at this point, so I’ll just dump some thoughts out onto paper. The highlight of my week is... that's hard actually, because it seems each day is better than the one before it. I love learning Chinese, and I feel like my progress is speeding up. I love teaching my Mudaoyou (investigators) about God's plan for them. I feel a real love for them, even though I know they are just role-playing. Wait! Actually, I taught a genuine investigator on Saturday. Her name is Juli. She is from Mainland China, but now lives in Salt Lake City with her daughter and son-in-law, who brought her to the MTC to be taught at TRC - I don't know, it's code for something that happens on Saturdays, in which missionaries teach volunteer "investigators," mostly BYU students. My companion and I are the only ones I know who've actually taught a real investigator here.
