Back in Vila - 1 JAN 2015

1 JAN 2015

Hey guys, so I'm emailing today because I guess today is p-day but maybe Monday still? I have no idea what is going on half the time. I'm in Vila. I am not in a trio like I thought I was going to be. My new companion is Elder Christensen. I am an office Elder now. I have to work in the mission office for like 3-4 hours a day. It's not too bad but it's kind of boring. I'm in charge of like inventory and mail and orders and stuff like that. The office has A/C and we get a truck so it could be worse.

I've met a lot of missionaries. Between here, Malekula, and Santo I've probably met close to 70 missionaries. Granted they're not all my best friends or anything but I have talked to them. It's kind of weird being in the office because all the other office Elders are like super experienced. Oh well.

On New Year's Eve all the missionaries had to be inside because of all the drunk people. The other office elders, Pres. and Sis. Granger and I went around in a party bus to make sure everyone was inside and we brought cookies and stuff. It was a bunch of fun. Almost all of the missionaries were inside. It was a good time.

I didn't know that I could email until now so I don't have many pictures to send. I'll send them probably Monday. Apparently my area is the most productive area in the mission. We have a baptism later today. I'm not counting it as mine because I haven't even met them. But I guess It's a good area. I don't know how long I'll be here. I hope not long. I want to go somewhere else like Santo or something.

I'm making it the best of it.

Alright well I am in Vila, I'm okay and I feel pretty good. I love you guys and I miss you guys. I'll keep pressing forward.
