So good to hear from you all this week!  Sounds like things are going well at home!  Lots of exciting stuff.  Though it sounds like half of you are away from home right now!  But that is all exciting!  

So, thanks for the emails and stuff!  Its always fun to hear whats going on.  

HEY! This is Sister Sheff.... hey Beans my favorite, coolest, most beautiful, friend in the world.... sooooo if you have a meal card this year, you can be my buddy right? Cool thanks in advance for the free food! 

Sorry, Sister Sheffield just he-jacked my email...  But ya, Im in Jakarta for today because we had to come and get our Kitas (government ID card) renewed.  So I am emailing in the office and sister sheffield showed up and jumped on real quick.

But things here are going well.  This week there is not too much to report on because my companion has been sick all week, so we have been stuck at home from Tuesday to Saturday, and so ya, that has been my week for the most part.  The poor kid got a severe case of food poisoning.  Which is weird that he got it and I didn't, because we eat all the same foods.  But my immune system must just be amazing! just kidding

But, Sunday we were able to go out and get 3 lessons in, and they all went really well.  And on Wednesday we were able to get a lesson in with Brother W because they live really close to our house.  I had been listening to a lot of the talks you sent, and I heard one about grace that I really liked, so we talked about grace and mercy with him and about why the Savior's atonement is important for us.  It was a very good and powerful lesson, but he just hasn't completely opened his heart to receive it yet.  He is getting closer, but it has been and continues to be a process with him.  But he is amazing and their family is awesome, and I am so excited for the day when he fully acknowledges the truth and blessing of the gospel in his life for him and his family.

Oh, one thing, Dad, DO NOT GET CHICKENS!!!  I have been living arorund chickens for the last year, and honestly one of the things I thought as we were sitting in front of someone's house the other day with stinky chickens walking around and pooping everywhere, was how excited I am to live somewhere where I don't have to deal with the smell and the poop of chickens, that's my 2 cents, for whatever its worth.  Sorry for the rant, but it is one of those things that I have truly thought...

Anyways, things here are good.  I got a lot of cleaning around the house done and some other good stuff.  So I have that down.  

Well, I love you all so much and am so glad that you are doing well.  Thanks for everything!  Oh, and I just got Sabrina's graduation card!  You look so pretty!  

Well, I think that's about it for now, so I will talk to you next week!  Love you!

Love Elder Wood
