Jen: Love you – you’re awesome… one more email and I’m going to the post office!!! Do you want anything besides your old worn backpack? Jen

Milke: No, but your sending my backpack? - that's sweet! I really want it but wash it first, cuz it's got writing on it and the washing machines down here suck and they don't have dryers and

First Transfer

Date: Mon, Mar 1, 2010 at 11:01 AM

Mom's Questions are in purple.

Hey Mom -  this week was great. Its so beautiful here. It makes Joinvilli look sad. Everything is so clean and its crazy how much money is floating around here.

Tell me about your transfer.
I got transferred, yay!

What was the bus ride like?
5 and a half hours! The country side is beautiful. If I had to imagine Germany, this is what it would look like. It looks like some artist drove through on the way here and painted the scenery.

What is your new area like?
beautiful and cold

What is the city like?
Clean with roads and the most white people I think I've seen since I left Gilbert.

What is your apartment like?
One level this time and i have 3 gates and a door that i have to go thruogh to get in, haha. Its really cool.

What is the ward like?
Its not a ward. Its a branch. I gave a talk last Sunday.

Tell me about your new companion, Elder Domingo.
He's a breath of fresh air.

What contacts are you working with?
We're marrying a family and we're going to baptize them the 20th.

What was the worst thing that happened this week?
I got food poisoning the first lunch here but I'm good now.

What was the best thing that happened this week?
I started teaching a new first lesson. I got the idea from another Elder and I changed it a little and I have been practicing it. We taught it to a guy and he accepted baptism. I like it better than the one that every one else has been teaching forever. I always thought the old one was reaLY BORING.

Love you, Elder Michael A. Millyard
