Dear family & friends,
We are sorry it has taken us so long to get in touch with all of you. We had no idea that a mission would consume every waking hour (and sometimes the sleeping ones as well.) We are up at 6:00 and to the office before 8:00. Many times it is 8:00 pm when we get home. We’re hoping when we learn our duties better and hopefully get another couple to help it won’t be so hectic. We have found that this is the most expensive mission in the church in the US and second only to London. That prohibits most couples from coming here.
It took us awhile to get a computer and much longer (and many calls to our son, Todd) to figure out how to use it and find our way in Windows 8. Hopefully you can open the file of the newsletter. Let us know if there is a problem.
We are loving our mission even though it is so busy. The association with the missionaries is so wonderful and fun.
Please add Elder Kratz to the “adopt a missionary”. Keep praying for the missionaries. They need your prayers. We had 8 inches of snow two nights ago and that brought 3 mission vehicle accidents in one night. Luckily they weren’t too serious and no one was hurt. That is 10 in the time Elder Poulson has taken over the cars program here. Just imagine 80,000 18-19 year olds out their biking and driving.
We love and miss you all and are anxious to hear from you.
Elder & Sister Poulson
