5th cycle in Yorktown

Alrighty, so Sunday was really great.  I loved getting to talk to each of you, and to find out how everything was going.  I think it's kinda funny what happened with Chester.  Maybe you should put up an electric fence. JK.  At least the guy didn’t make you pay the $100 fine.  And congratulations Christina!  That’s amazing getting 1st in the 600m.  It seems to me like you Sarah and Daniel got the sports genes.  I just have the video game genes :)  But in all seriousness, congratulations, that’s awesome.  Also congratulations to Sarah for the Pan Am thingy, too bad you can’t do both UTEP and the Pan Am thingy.  But hey, you’ll have a fantastic year at University.  It's SOOO much better than high school.  Just make sure you are self disciplined, because it's so much easier to not do everything you should be doing when away from home.  Now another thing I thought was cool was that I could understand what Dad was trying to say in his email, and the only word I didn’t know/couldn’t figure out right away based on context was "Falar."  So, I've decided that when I get home I want to learn Portuguese.  I was thinking, I'd teach dad better Spanish and in return he'd more or less teach me Portuguese.  I don’t know, what do you think dad? 
As for the shot calls, no one got shot.  Myself and Elder Fotu are going to be staying here alone for another cycle.  What President Smith is doing is turning this area into a Zebra area, which means that we are now in charge completely of teaching both English and Spanish.  Woohoo.  Unfortunatley I was kinda hoping to get transferred out, not because I don’t like this area.  I love it.  But I kinda want to get to see different areas and meet different people at some point.  Hopefully I get changed soon.  But hey, it is what it is.  And I know that President Smith receives revelation for what happens during the transfers, so obviously there’s a reason why I am where I am.  But anyways, that’s what’s happening with me.  I still have the same address, so don’t worry about changing it in the ward bulletin.  And as for Dad’s question about me writing people, no I haven’t yet, but that’s on my list of things to do for today. 
Anyways, I really don’t have a whole lot to add since Sunday either, so I'll end it here.  I hope everything continues to go well with each of you, and I love you all very much.
Com Amor,
Elder Dilling
P.S.  Thanks for the pics of my car.  I did get them all.
