Bloody Man?!

Letter from 4/7/14
Dear Family,
   Yá'át'ééh (hello in Navajo).
   Well, so far I love it out here.
    Most of the People are so sweet. Like I said this morning to dad, I still don't a lot of people, but I am starting to get more familiar with the area and some people. So what's going on at home? How was the new Captain America? Why was it such a plot change?
   So, Sariah emailed me today to let me know what was going on. And it was sure great to hear from Mike today.
   So...I wasn't gonna tell all y'all this, but Saturday afternoon we went to Bishop's house to watch conference and just after the opening prayer, their oldest daughter came running in screaming about a bloody guy. So Bishop and the 4 of us ran out and chased the guy down. On closer inspection, the guy was beat the crap up. He had been stabbed and was missing one of his fingers. So we tried to get him to sit down and calm down, but instead he kept going until he came to a 9 foot fence. So, thinking that would surely stop him, we kinda hung back. But he somehow climbed that and kept going. Then we never saw him again.
   So that was my crazy rez experience for the week.
Well, love y'all!
Hágoónee'  (bye in Navajo)

No mom I did not get any blood on me. I am super careful about that kinda stuff quite frankly it freaks me out! Seeing him and walking with him didn't freak me out though. Alcohol is a huge problem down here even though it is illegal and you cant buy it on the rez.
I feel like I know that lady whose son got baptized from somewhere.
So that is pretty funny Elder Bowmans Bro is moving into the ward. he is kinda a legend here in many farms this was his first area and was here forever.
That is soo cool yall have a family temple night!!! I have been thinking of how much I miss the temple lately and I still have to wait like 5 more months before we go again. then that will be the last time until I go home! Speaking of which I have a few requests for things you can send me for Easter. One of which is my Temple clothes just to have for when that time comes, the next is dads baseball mitt the stake is starting up a  softball league. and I think that's it for right now.
That is sweet about Caleb's and Kurt's papers!!!
Love yall!

New Area

Email dated 4/7/14:

Conference was way awesome! It seems especially awesome while you are out on a mission! Those are sweet quotes!! We watched all but priesthood in different homes. 2 of which we watched at our Bishop's house. They are way sweet! I am not quite sure which was my favorite I liked them all! It sounds like yall had a pretty busy weekend! Thats a real bummer that Riss didn't have fun at prom! Those were like my favorite most expensive weekends ever! I planned on heading to a trading post in the other elders area for Riss' B-day thing today! I do plan on writing letters today so repentance call accepted. It is crazy down here, Some good and some bad. but I love it to death!
Well sorry its another short one
Love ya !

Well I like it quite a bit here we actually live in Many Farms with the other set of elders in a trailer on the next to the church. The Area looks like the desert! It is pretty crazy out here so far I have only gone through a couple sandstorms! Haha! I know what You mean when you said that sand gets everywhere! The people here are sweet! We even had a Baptism On saturday!! A lot of people live in little shacks called Hogans. There is a dog who resides on the church grounds, along with us and a senior couple, Named Churchy. He is known for being the Fattest Most pampered dog on the rez! I will send a pic. Haha. Mike has not emailed me yet, but tell him i am anxiously waiting for the day i get to communicate with him. Well hopefully i get the letters you sent today so i can write you back more.
Love Ya
