And the First Assignment Is...

We got the very anticipated letter from Eric below telling us about his first assignment and his new Companion:

HEY... Its me, Elder Hadder
Ok so now my P-days are on Mondays. I can't send a letter home today, because we had a zone p-day and that took allllll day. It is already 4:30 :(    So that stinks a lot, but whatever, I was able to learn everyone's name. So... I got assigned to the Talofofo and Yona area here on Guam. I am very very lucky, because my companion and trainer is Elder Kata, and he is from Chuuk. That's right I got so lucky that my companion is a native of Micronesia. He and I think one other Elder is from Micronesia.

Elder Kata called to train Eric in Talofofo

I have been assigned to learn Chuukese. (
note: this was the language Eric was hoping to learn). So having a native from Chuuk as my companion is super amazing. I get to be with Elder Kata for two (2) transfers (which is twelve [12] weeks). So my goal is to learn Chuuk super well after my two transfers. Oh and get this.... Elder Adams* trained Elder Kata, so that makes Elder Adams my grandpa!! haha. I have been taking so many pictures of everything. So I'll send it all next week for sure. So to send me packages or letters just send it to the mission office in Guam, and we pick it up every P-day. Next week I'll send a letter as well as the video card :)

So I have been sick for like a week now... I dont have like half of my voice. But that's ok, I'll get it back eventually. Elder Kata and I get our new apartment later today, so I'm excited for that. Oh and get this, I think Elder Kata and I are the only Elders on Guam who get bikes, everyone else gets cars, haha. So I'll be getting skinny 


Thank you so much Max for looking after mom. You are the best brother ever, I love and miss you so much. I think about you every single day. You make me so happy, and I will be sending pictures home for you. I love you, and you are the best. Love you Max.

Alrighty, well I have to go, I love everyone. I will be sending pictures next week.
