Shae… well i hope the wisdom teeth thing goes well for you haha just remember how funny i was when i got mine out.
Mom and Dad you two are awesome as well and i love you very much.
But as for this week… i dont really know what to say. But today we did have our interviews with our mission president and he told me as i sat down “Elder Payne i dont see any problems that you are going through. I actually feel a very calm energy around you.” Im glad that all the hard work has finally paid off haha, but i still have a long ways to go.
This interview was actually very awesome! President just asked me a few questions about the area and my companion and that was pretty much it. He did say however that i will be going coastal very soon. I love the area that i am serving in but i would also love to see durban haha. He told me “you have spent your whole mission away from the coast and have done a lot of really good work. I think its time that we call you to come work for us over there. Your set of skills seem to be particular to a few areas.” Again i was kind of like wow! President is showing a lot of confidence in me. I really need to continue doing my best for him and the lord.
Also something i thought you might like to know is i received the christmas parcel from you people and also one from the ward primary which was a real treat. I really enjoyed all the contents hidden inside.
I dont have much time this week but i hope you all have a very good week!!

This week I also included a short but interesting snippet from a letter Mom sent to Elder Payne.

… Lacey (Elder Payne’s sister) did get an official letter from President Monson about the change in your call (emphasis added). I am taking that home and putting it in your box of treasures.
