Hey guys,

It was another pretty good week here. So we picked up another companion, and transfer calls came in last night and we're staying the same. So we'll be "walking 3" for this transfer with Elder Kim (the good one that was with us before) rejoining us just coming off a successful surgery in Thailand. He's great and he's the best teacher I've seen out here, so we're glad to have him. 
Left to right:  Elder Myers, Elder Kim, Sam
How much longer does Myers have? Elder Myers has about 3 1/2 weeks left then he's done. Do you go to the mission home every week? If we can we go to the mission home weekly. How many missionary zones are in Phnom Penh? In PP probably like 50 missionaries or so. I don't know, rough guess. We are lacking missionaries big time right now and we have to wait til next transfer before we get like 17 new ones. How missionaries in your zone? In south zone there's 18 of us I think. Do you every see Elder Z [Sam's MTC companion] much? I get to see Elder Zierenberg sometimes. How are President and Sister Christensen doing? They are doing well. I think they're finally starting to get settled in and soon will start doing stuff more their way.  I wondered if they have been to Vietnam yet? I kind of wondered how much time the president has to spend on Vietnam vs Cambodia. They went to Vietnam last week. The APs went with them and it sounds like it's totally different from here. Modern. Do you need some more supplies? Is there anything specific you would like? I'm doing good and shouldn't need anything for a while.

[We sent Sam some pictures of his own baptism back in 2003.] Thanks for the baptism pictures. People will be excited to see those, I think.  Have you gotten wind yet of the First Presidency’s & Quorum of the Twelve’s recent emphasis on the importance of improving Sabbath Day observance both at Church and at home? I don't know that they've really done too much to keep sabbath day observance and sacrament better here, but they should because it's a problem.

Hey mom. Got any good tips on teaching a beginners piano class with a lot of people in the class? Like should I just start by drawing a staff and notes and getting them to memorize it? What order would you do?

I'm kind of short on time right now, so that's about all that I've got. We've got some decent investigators, but also some who will be close to dropping soon, so we're hoping to find some more soon.

Have a good week you guys!
