The leg is fine, haha.

Hey Fam!

So I want to get this out right there in the open. The leg is great! Haha There really are no problems with it. The butterfly Band-Aid stuff they put on it fell off like it´s supposed to and it looks great. Don´t even worry about a thing! Haha

This week was a pretty crazy one, but before I start with this week, I want to tell you all about some stuff I did last week that I forgot about. First, with the gross one.... Are you ready???? I don’t really think so, but I’m gonna tell you all anyway... I had cow brain tacos last Sunday to go along with the pizza we ate. I will NEVER eat brain again.... It has the weirdest texture I have ever felt in a food and that is the for sure truth about that! EWWWWW!!!!!

Ok so now the cool story. Ready? Ok so there´s a member of the ward here who’s like 30 or so who used to live in Ogden. That’s the first cool thing. The second is that he worked on campus (WSU) playing Spanish music on Sundays. The third cool, and kind of weird part is that he used to live where Tara now lives! What a small world we live in! Its nuts! I just had to tell you about that. Ready for more news? There’s an Elder Okey here from Hooper who’s now comps with Elder Beltran and his mom used to be an usher in the Dee. How about them apples? Crazy world. I can’t remember her name, but yeah. She knows exactly who I am. Crazy,eh?

Ok so a little bit more news. We found out today who the next mission President is gonna be. His name is President Flores and he’s from Vera Cruz, Mexico. How cool! He’ll get here in July sometime. Nuts, eh? Other news, Elder Robb, the Assistant, knows our cousin Corby (Felt) Roberts really well. They’re either wardies in Las Vegas or they live in the same stake. How about that! It’s a small, small world! Haha

That’s all the really really cool stuff that happened this week. It’s cool being with Elder Chatu only again. We’re having fun together. This week was a little tough and HOT!!!!! Haha but it was a good Sunday yesterday. We saw the fruits of our labors for sure!

Mom, that’s so cool that you have a movie list! I’m making one right now for Elder Chatu for when he leaves in 5 weeks! I’m looking forward to watchin’ those with you Mommy.

That´s really about it.
Love you all,

Elder Alexander
