Week Twenty!

Hello, it’s always great to get letters! It makes me glad to hear from friends! Things haven’t been going too band I got the calls for our moves yesterday and I am going to Goreston-on-sea, yup, right beside the sea so that will be fun! Also President Patch is leaving and we are getting a New Mission president named President Jordon so we will see how that goes. To tell you the truth I am glad to get away from Elder Hlalaphi I didn’t get along with him too well. My new companion will be Elder Fisher but I don’t know much about him yet. I am going to miss the members here, they are awesome and I’m defiantly going to have to come back and visit them after my mission. Has Dakota been updating Josh’s blog? I want to see how he is doing. I am sending him a letter today but won’t get an answer for a while. Chelsea you should send me pictures of Megan’s wedding :D those might come in handy. I’ll be like “she didn’t even send me a dear john letter” :( lol. That would be good fun. How is everyone in Merritt? I am going to write Travis and Dakotah pretty soon. I am trying to get better at stopping people; it’s my biggest problem at the moment. Well I’ll tell you more about my new area when I get there! -Elder Onychuk

Week Nineteen

Hello! I did my three hours of driving instruction today. It went pretty well. It’s a little weird but luckily I haven’t had much trouble besides reaching up to change from forwards to reverse by the steering wheel thinking that the vehicle is an automatic. Things have been improving, nothing too interesting… ya I can’t think of much. Hmmmm there was this Irish guy when I came into the library who noticed my Celtic-ness red hair, go figure. But he said he knew about the latter-day Saint church and I talked to him for a bit. Anyway hope to here form you all soon! -Elder Onychuk

Week Eighteen

Hey things are going alright I suppose. Is Canada celebrating the Queens jubilee over there? It has been a big thing here. It’s the Queens jubilee for these next two days. A lot of shops are closed for it and we had a ward jubilee/ helping hands party. We had about 40 mentally handicapped people come they did dancing and such. We had carnival games set up like guessing how much candy is in the jar and we had food, it was pretty fun. We were not allowed to proselyte there which is understandable, they told us to come in normal clothes so we just enjoyed it and helped set up tables and chairs. It was good fun I wish I took more pictures but I’ll ask the ward for some. Having that party kind of made me a little home sick. I was just thinking about getting my life together after my mission, it’s exciting to think about but not really something I should be focusing on right now. I’m going to do my three hours of driving instruction on Wednesday sot that will be fun. President patch asked me if I had it done yet and he pretty much commanded me to do it this transfer. Haha. I think that I might be moving to a driving area after this transfer, I heard that there are not many missionaries that do there three hours of driving instruction, my new companion is alright just a very different culture again its wird that culture is so different in many place. He is a nice guy and works hard but has many facial expressions that make me think that he is thinking something; I don’t know it’s just wired. -Elder Onychuk
