Happy Pioneer Day everyone!
As you can imagine, Pioneer day is not as big of a deal here because 1) Florida was settled long before Brigham Young was even born and 2) The LDS church isn't quite as big here as out west. Nevertheless, we had a good time remembering the pioneers and celebrated by going out and preaching the gospel to those who had not heard it. This last week marks a complete year of service as a full time missionary. I took your advice and spent a little bit of money for something I needed. My clothes are fine, in good condition, and fitting well, and radio shack was having a clearance sale on Mio brand GPS Navigation systems. So, in case you were wondering why I spent 70 dollars at radio shack, that's why (the price includes a 1 year warranty in case anything happens to it). Even with my knowledge of this area, it's been incredibly useful and I'm very happy with it. Transfers are tomorrow and I'm staying in Kendall and so is Elder Cathro. I really like it here, not just for missionary work, but I could actually live here. It's a nice place. I couldn't say that about anywhere else that I've seen on my mission.
Alejandra is getting baptized on Saturday! That'll be fun. I'm making lemon bars. I was just wondering if you all still look the same as you did a year ago? If you do, that's awesome because it's exactly how I imagine you. If not, then pictures would be much appreciated since the only ones I have are the ones from the mesa arts center that sister barton took.
Well, Happy tuesday!
