I Made It And Am Still Alive!

June 27, 2015

Dear Family & Friends,

Hey Dad, I made it and am still alive haha. My P-Day is Wednesday so I can actually send an email then. My companion is Elder Gurr from Mesa, Arizona. We've had a ton of fun. The language is coming along. I can pray in Norwegian. We taught our first lesson in Norwegian yesterday. We teach the second tonight. We did fairly well considering what we know. 
President Tracy & Joeen Hill

We also met our mission president last night. They are wonderful. Share this with mom.

Love you, I'll email Wednesday.
