Words he sent to the Toolson’s, Kurt and Shannon, Thanks so much for the weekly Emails! I love having letters to read from home about what's going on, it keeps me connected to home. I just wanted to let you both know how large of a role you played in me staying in the church and making the decision to serve a mission. I think that had you guys not been there to set an example and uplift me, I may not have made very good decisions. well... I would have made WORSE decisions. I think Kurt would agree with me in saying that I was never perfect, but I still made it here somehow and I think that your family was a big part of that. Things are going really well here! We have one investigator on date for this Friday and we hope to have a few more on date by the end of this week. I have seen a giant difference in the productivity of our day when we are being obedient as opposed to being... less obedient. These first few weeks in the field have seriously flown by. I have no idea how I've already been out here for almost 3 weeks! I'm really not used to the lack of food here. We almost never get DA's so we're left to our own devices with food and we're too poor to afford a whole lot of anything. I've already dropped a waist size, but the pants here still don't fit me. I put on a pair of size 36 waist trousers last week and my thighs nearly exploded out of them! WHO HAS A SIZE 36 WAIST AND SIZE 28 THIGHS?? That is one oddly shaped man, but that's the English for you. Lots of Love, Elder Sorensen June 12, 2013 I've been super busy with zone P-day on Monday and zone meeting yesterday and exchanges with the district leader today. I'm in Evesham right now on exchange and I'm only just now able to email everyone. Glad to hear things at home are still exciting and that the blog is doing well. It feels good to be popular worldwide. I love hearing all this stuff about home so keep sending it. My bike broke last week beyond repair (I'm on exchanges right now so I don't have my camera, but I'll put up pictures when I can.) It was pretty sweet, we were about 4 or 5 miles from home and I hit a pot hole. My back wheel came off of the bike and pretty much destroyed itself in a glorious blur of flying metal parts. I then had to hoist the bike onto my back and carry it all the way back home. It felt pretty great. The baptism went awesome! We had all kinds of non-members there so that was great. Everything went through without any major problems! I'm looking forward to the package as well! I haven't gotten any post since I've been here so that will be refreshing. Could you give people my address so that they know where to mail me at? England is so cool. I'm starting to call everything by their British names. It feels pretty cool. Although I still haven't gotten used to calling pants "trousers” which gets me into trouble because "pants" over here means panties. So that gets awkward. That’s pretty much it for now, like I said I should have pictures up in the next few days.
