November 14, 2011

(i wrote this before i read the second email)
hey mom,

I called Ronnie.  She was really excited that I called. It was good to hear her voice. President Nieder is awesome too, i thanked him and told him that ronnie thanked him also. haha. He just laughed and said your welcome. I love president and sister nieder, theyre awesome. One of the members were close to (the burgess family)  told us about that also. Her sons on a mission in Michigan and has only been out 7 months, so she started freaking out. Im like you and my mom would be best friends. she goes REALLY? haha. but i havent been biking much lately. were mostly in our car. Whenever we are on bike though we wear helmets and Sis. Burgess yells at me if I have the strap unbuckled when im walking to my bike. haha. shes awesome. We really only biked the first 3 weeks i was hear and it stayed lit longer also, but ill go do that. I do have a helmet, but its a piece of crap falling apart from walmart, i know mine is a really good helmet thats basically new and will last the mission. Thanks for the money also, i bought a couple long sleeve shirts and extra clothes at ross because i blew out both my suit pants and a pair of regular pants within the first couple weeks. haha. :D i got 3 new suits though! 1 from a missionary that didnt need it and 1 from a missionary that i havent given back to. :D haha!! and a 3rd one from a member that it didnt fit so he gave me a ralph lauren suit for free. haha. great success!! i love members! and then our dinner calendar coordinator bought me a new pair of suit pants for my grey suit and then sewed up my other one. now i have 5 suits i got in a month. sick right? :))))

Ive taught sunday school 3 times since ive been here and twice to elders and high priests combined. so, maybe its just a family thing. and, id love to write her too, but i need an email, actually nevermind, ill write a letter home this week. sound good? k good.

the work here is picking up. My new companion is Elder Roedel. hes a ginger from florida and georgia but with a utah accent. He plays in a screamo rock band in provo and he and his band all turned down a record deal with a label, all to go serve missions. crazy right?? at first, i didnt like him probably because i was freaking out cause i had to do all the planning and direct him around the area. but the work here is picking up like crazy! We reset our family of 4 for baptism on december 17th. Their 11 year old daughter came home from a young women activity and tells her mom she wants to be mormon, and when can she be mormon?? we go to teach our lesson last night and she raises her hand and asks when there gonna be baptised. were like..... uh.... ok? nows good. just kidding. haha. so we talked about testimony, faith, and how we have to have the spirit to know these things are true. it was an awesome lesson. Our 20 year old on the other hand whos baptism was coming up is going south. Her parents have had bad influences and theyre telling her to stop. So were going to set up something and rebuke her. just kidding. haha. but seriously. well work it out. we also had a group of 3 women who live together and all have kids and were fighting over who got to read the book of mormon first. hahahaa. which was funny.

all in all I still love what im doing and its only getting better. :)

Love you guys!

Elder Ryan Nonu
ps: im sad but im more happy than anything. Elder Roedel and I are giving talks in 2 weeks. Now, I know who Ill talk about.  Ronnie!!!  Thanks Mom, Love you.
