Companion: Elder Ault

Hey Momma! I am glad you had another happy week! My week was a pretty good one too! Haha sounds like taxes are pretty fun this year :D That is so awesome that you and Dad are going to the clubhouse and working out everyday! When I get home I am definitely coming with you guys. That is super good, stayin healthy! Looks like Dad and Johnny are keeping pretty busy with Aunt Alice's pool, wish I was there to help! Thanks so much for the books I am excited to get them! Tell Myla thank you so much!!
This week was abit of a crazy week! I found out on Teusday that my companion is training a new missionary which means I got kicked out on friday! Because I am so close to the mission, when the new missionarys came on thursday night we got to go do the Dan Jones activity with them. The new missionarys all come and stand up on these boxes at a super crowded night market and yell their testimonies while holding up a Book of Mormon and then right when they step down one of the missionaries there will run up and grab them and take them around and contact people at the night market for about 45 minutes or so. I got to take a native taiwanese elder around it was alot of fun! He is also liu zhang lao. Same as me! There was 26 new missionaries this move call which is pretty rediculous! That is the most this mission has gotten in one move call in a long long time!
So on friday morning I took off and stayed with the Dakeng elders in their apartment which is pretty much right down the street from our apartment. Move day isn't until monday so we just had us three together for a few days which was fun. On saturday night we found out where our new areas are! I am now in xinying!!! It is in Tainan which is pretty much the central part of our mission. My new companion is Elder Ault! He seems like a pretty cool guy so I am super excited to serve with him! I just got to xinying about 5 hours or so ago. I took the train from taichung to here in about an hour and 30 minutes, not bad! That was the first time I have ever been on a train! I think... well I love you family and hope all is well! I have tons of pictures I want to send but I forgot the cord to hook my camera up to the computer! Sorry! I will have to wait until next week. Love and miss you!       -Elder Ripley
