May 3, 2010

Hey Family,
Yea, on Sunday I'll probably let Elder Thurman use the phone first, so I'll probably call around 6 your time. I'm guessing all of this, they don't tell us any sort of information until the day before or the day of. But right after this e-mail, we're driving down to Davenport to have Zone p-day with everyone and then we are spending the night there too because tomorrow we are having Zone conference in Nauvoo. We're having a huge sha-bang because President is leaving so we get to go to Carthage, then Nauvoo and actually get to tour the place. Its going to be fun. I'm hoping to get me a Nauvoo brick and we get to go to the book store! I'm thinking about getting a old school Book of Mormon because I dont know if I'm going to be in the Iowa or Missouri mission, So I'm not sure if this is going to be the last time I'll get to see Nauvoo on the mission.
I haven't got the shirts yet, I think they might have been sent to the mission office in Peoria so if they are there I will have a chance to pick them up tomorrow. I'll let you know if I got them. Dad was asking about Quinten and Melissa. They are doing great, the Estes family has really become friends with them and plans all sorts of cool stuff with them. Quinten just got a job at a plastic company here in town, but he works third shift, so its hard to see them through out the week, weekends really work out for them. They have 3 girls I'm not sure on the names - one is Dakota, I'll try to remember the others. Mitch has really become our main focus though. He wasn't able to come to church yesterday, but he is still on track for baptism on May 21st, he's a stud.
This week we went on splits with the AP's and with the district leader, its been a sweet week. Elder Thurman and I have been getting along and have had more time to adjust to how we both teach. It really takes a few lessons to get used to how someone else teaches.
I'm really excited to talk to you guys this Sunday! I LOVE YOU ALL -Elder Hale
