Thanks mommy for making sure I got an email. I realize it is very late right now and I am sorry that I didn't come earlier, but we had other things that we did today. It has been a fairly good week except where work is concerned. Our branch missionaries kept bailing on us or were really late.
P-day fun at the zoo playground.

I am glad Julie Yates enjoyed the letter. I was very grateful for their Christmas card. It came late, but that didn't matter, I felt so special and I really needed the message inside. They must be a great family. I am excited to meet them. Do you two travel together to choir practice? How many kids are in their family? Where is their son serving his mission?
Mommy, I have a very serious question to ask you and I need you to be completely honest with me and answer it in your next email. Don't forget to answer because I need to know. How bad is the stuff going on with Grandpa Newman? Somehow I don't think he will be there when I get home and that kills me. That really kills me, but I also had that feeling the last time I saw him before I left. And while I was in the MTC. I just need to know what is most likely going to happen. And whatever it is please tell him I love him so much and I can feel that he is praying for me. And tell Grammie I love her very much as well and I love her shining example of courage.
Keep working hard mom. It sounds like things are really working out, just keep going. I love you so much and I know that everything is going to work out the way that God needs it to work out. He has a plan and sometimes we don't quite understand that plan, or sometimes it doesn't fit with the plans we have. But I know it is always the best plan and I am grateful for it. I really like the scripture that Sister Klein shared at the MRC and that is Doctrine and Covenants 3: 1-3....I think...It talks about how only the plans of men are frustrated, but God's plans never are. He knows, and He cares. I know He does because I have seen it. I have seen it in my own life and in the lives of those we teach. He loves us so much. So much. And He will give us the very best if we will just let Him.
I love you all and wish you a happy happy HAPPY! week.
Sister Newman

PS. I already told Kristina this, but I am so excited to be able to cook for you when I get home. I am going to make you some stinking awesome food. You are all going to just die! So Good!!!!
PSS. I hope a certain someone knows that Pikachu is a pretty electric little fella and anyone who thinks he is cool is pretty cool in my book, and that I would never give this person up as a friend because it would be no fun to laugh alone...
