Last week my companion went home, so I got two new ones! The one in
the picture with me is Elder Neuenschwander. He's a redneck from
Washington. His life before the mission was pretty similar to mine. He
worked for a commercial custom hay outfit. He started his mission in
Mexico, but he got meningitis and a few other nasty things so he got
to take a vacation. He put in his papers again and got sent to the
best place on earth. My other companion is Elder Morrison! He is one
of the missionaries that I came out with. He's from a place in Oregon
right next to Medford. He has been diabetic since he was sixteen when
he had a crazy series of medical problems and also eats more candy
than any other person I have ever met.
I have forgotten to mention this for a long time, but we got a new
mission president a while back. He's great! His name is Gary Reynolds.
He's from Utah(surprise), he owns some huge demolition company and a
few motorcycle dealerships because he likes to ride quite a bit.
Anyways. He's about 5'8", but he did say that there was a taller side
of the Reynolds family so he is probably related to the good ones from
Manhattan when we went to a Morrison doctor appointment

We live two minutes from the mission office so we help deliver cars
out to the island occasionally. We decided to make a pit stop at this
