Well as usual I will answer your questions:
1- No I never did find a tailor who could alter my pants, so I have been wearing my pants and shirts and they have all been huge on me! I have a funny story about that though. So my compañero has been sick. He has problems with his back and knees so he has been on rest and we can't leave the house for a week. So on one of the days we were in last week, I tried to reduce my pants my self. I am happy to say that I did it!! However, they turned out way too small and it looked really funny because it was like super skinny pant legs but at my hips it was way too big still so I looked really funny. BUT I TOTS FORGOT TO TAKE A PIC!!! Lo siento (sorry)!
2- In the Easter package you send me I would LOVE some more ties. I like the CTR brand so you could send that and then also just send your love. For my Patriarchal blessing, go ahead and copy it whatever size you would like. It is good with me.
3- Yes I have given away the rubber bracelets the boys sent. I gave them away mostly to other missionaries.
4- My responsibilities as a DL are that every Tuesday we have a district meeting and I have to run and direct that. Along with that I have to prepare training for the missionaries in my district, and when my district needs it I need to give interviews for baptism!!! I also get to have exchanges with my district and really that's all I do as the district leader!!
Well this week was super boring because my compañero can't leave the house and that means that I can't leave either!!!! Honestly that was my week! My compañero might get sent home because of his knees and back problems so I have no idea what will happen!!! I am sorry that this email is super short but we didn't do anything this week!!! And sorry that I don't have my camera this week--I forgot it in the house.
Now my questions:
1- So ARE you guys moving to Prescott?
2- What about my cowboy hat?
3- Do you guys have plans for when Grandma and Grandpa come home?
4- How is Harris doing with his mission papers?
Well, sorry this is so short but this week we didn't do anything because of my compañero :(
