#53: Meeting the New Mission President

This week has been really good.  We met our new mission president, President and Sister Montoya on Tuesday and they are really sweet.  I like them a lot actually! :) I'm sure I will learn a lot from them during this last year that I have here!!!  Wow, that's crazy to think about!
Sister Montoya said that we can eat pancakes now, but only twice a week!  But hey, that's better than nothing.  But only if they are the kind made with integral wheat or something!! hahaha (We had no idea this was ever something he couldn't have)

I did get my ONE YEAR package but I won't open it until Friday when it's my actual one year mark! Elder Merlo is doing pretty good!  He's still a bit shy like how I was, speaking in lessons and all that but it's all good.  It will come with practice.  My district is pretty dope.  It's me, my companion and another companionship.  They like to play b-ball on Mondays  so that's the district activity that we do in the mornings so it's fun!  I actually am able to use my b-ball shoes that I brought from home-finally!  There's a gym here in town to play!

The weather here has been super bipolar!!  It's sunny in the mornings and then mid afternoon it rains....HARD!! On Saturday, there were RIVERS in the streets....they don't have gutters here and it's a bit humid here...more than I've felt in Reno.

Hope you have a great 4th of July!!!
Love your son,
Elder Fowler

This week's scripture is:

1 Nephi 17:3
And thus we see that the commandments of God must be fulfilled. And if it so be that the children of men keep the commandments of God he doth nourish them, and strengthen them, and provide means whereby they can accomplish the thing which he has commanded them; wherefore, he did provide means for us while we did sojourn in the wilderness.
