Since I last e-mailed you on Thursday, not much has happened because I got absolutely DESTROYED by a pretty nasty sore throat and fever… No fun… I definitely got it from one of the other Elders in our district, and it got passed around to just about everyone in our district, including the sisters… My goodness though. We had to stay in Thursday evening and miss out on our ward barbecue on Friday for Labor Day and the appointments we had that day. Then Saturday I felt good enough to work, but then Sunday after church and a pranzo [lunch] appointment, I felt awful again and we had to go back to rest. Luckily today I feel a bit better. What a drag though! I’m just glad I was sick now, because that means I’ll probably be doing pretty dang good for a while once I get home. 🙂
Today we went to the Basilica di San Paolo, which was awesome. We saw the tomb where Paul was supposedly laid to rest, and some chains that held him prisoner. How cool is that? I took lots of pictures while we were there.
Well, Skype should be good for Sunday. I may end up at an Internet point, but we’ll have to see how things work out… I hope not! I’d prefer not to go to an Internet point, but I’m really excited for it!
I’m glad you’re doing better Mom! That’s really awesome. We have lots of fun stuff coming up, so it’ll be important for you to be feeling well for it! Also, I’m glad you’ve gotten in touch with Salvatore. It will be fun to see him in Utah. That was seriously his dream to be able to come! By the way a large shirt would probably be best for the picture.
I’m pretty jealous you got to go to Ky Raymond’s reception! That’s super exciting. They look really good together.
I’m bummed out I didn’t get to see the T-bird in person, but it sounds like it has a good home now.
As for the get-together on the 31st, don’t worry about having too many over. Also just a relaxed little get-together would be nice. By the way, will I have an assigned topic? If so, it’d be good to know so I can maybe throw some thoughts together beforehand… Let me know!
Well, I think I’ve addressed almost everything you’ve asked me so…
Ciao for now!
This photo was taken last week at the Technology Mission Conference with Elder Bednar. All of the missionaries from the entire mission were in attendance. Craig and several of his good friends and former companions are on the first two rows. Click photo for a larger view.
The meeting was held at a hotel in Rome. That is Elder Bednar at the podium.
Craig’s friend, Ben Barrow is on the left.
President Waddoups at the podium.
The rest of the pictures on this post were all taken today when the missionaries went to Basilica di San Paolo for their P-day.
