Denver Harbor - May 27, 2014

I've been doing great! I really feel like I'm starting to get the hang of all this. I'm not there yet but I feel close.

I hope that I can stay here for at least 2 transfers more. There are a lot of great people here and a lot of work that needs to be done. We're a little worried about the ward situation. I feel a little selfish for wanting to stay in an area so bad but this area is awesome. Hey by the way, Elder Strong should be coming back tomorrow so we'll see what happens there.

It is getting a lot hotter! Not humid yet but it's coming. It's been raining for the last little while and after that it will probably get really humid. I'm not too worried though. I'm sure that I'll get used to it. This week we'll make sure to drink a lot of water though it's a little different because we are in a car still.

This week was pretty crazy. Turns out me and Elder Long are heading over to Beaumont right after this to get his knee checked out. Yesterday he was playing basketball and he twisted wrong and we think he hyper extended it. I think that he'll be fine though. Another crazy thing is that I learned the haka! There is a culture night coming up for our ward and we're doing a talent show thing. We have an hermana in our district who's family is from Samoa and she had the idea that Elder Long and I (now just me) should do the haka. We had her and a couple other Polynesian missionaries teach me and it should turn out good.

I was talking to a relative of Sister Crawford a couple of days ago and he told me that when he was on his mission a general authority promised him that if he would say morning and evening prayers in German every day after his mission he would keep his language. He said it works.

I like Utah cold weather and Texas hot (so far). Texas in the winter was really cold though it didn't seem like it and there was no snow. I'm excited to see what the summer will be like here!

Sorry I don't have a whole lot of time but I hope you know that I love you!

Love you!

Elder Ressler
