Zed’s p-day last week was changed to Wednesday because of Christmas. Here is most of his letter from that day:
New things this week: GOT OUR FLIGHT PLANS. SO STOKED. WE LEAVE MONDAY THE 29TH. CANNOT WAIT. haha. really though, can’t wait, at all. We’ll be getting there at 4 PM Finland time the next day, the 30th. The jet lag will probably be really terrible, but that’s okay – a missionary schedule is probably the best thing for jet lag, haha.
Gave a talk (in Finnish!) in Sacrament Meeting on Sunday – not exactly too stressful because the topic was Christmas and there were only about 10 people there who could understand me, haha. It went well. …
Got several packages this week – thanks to everyone who sent something! I really loved getting Christmas cards from Gram and Grandad and also from the Roberts – and also thanks to the Roberts for sending me puzzles and a wrapped present that I have yet to open. 🙂
What else – we had a good devotional by the presiding bishop yesterday, during which he pulled out a real sword. Yes, in the middle of the devotional. He was talking about the armor of the Lord, etc. and then he pulled out a sword!!! So that was pretty awesome haha.
Tomorrow’s devotional should be good – pretty sure it’ll be an Apostle since it’s Christmas, so I’m pretty excited. I’m singing in the choir and we’re singing a really really cool arrangement of Precious Savior, Dear Redeemer, which is actually pretty challenging, and I’m singing tenor, so I get to sing an F# at one point. 🙂 Having a ton of fun in that regard!!
Not much else to report at this point – next time I email i’ll be SUOMESSA OLEN NIIN PALJON INNOSTUNUT JA EN VOI ODOTTAA AGHGHGHGHGHGH sorry haha the Finnish just came right out… can’t wait!
Rakastan teitä niin paljon! Hyvää Joulua!!!
