Ran Annim from Chuuk . . .

We got an email from Sean this week and we were sooo excited! We wanted to share some of his letter here:

RAN ANNIM!! Things are going super well, just trying to pick up the language as fast as I can so that I can start teaching people. I'm super pumped that Elder Obray is my trainer, and I'm trying to learn everything I can from him. Anyways, yeah we were supposed to have a baptism on Saturday but it didn't end up happening. The investigators name is Boi Boi, and he is super cool. He is way smart, and he strongly believes the Gospel, so we are hoping to shoot for this upcoming Saturday if nothing else gets in his way.

So you've probably figured out, but my P-Day is on Mondays, and I love it. It's almost like having an extended weekend. Almost though, as we are still working hard to make sure that we have everything prepared for the coming week. It finally rained here too!! We had gone a full week without having any water in our house, and on Friday it finally dumped on us!! The only problem with that was that it was on the day that we decided to do a Blitz of Mechitiw. It still worked out though, and we were able to meet with a lot of people.

I love you, I miss you, and I hope this finds you well :)
I tong ngonuk!!
Elder McEwan

Already has the Chuukese signs down - Elder McEwan doing great and learning tons in Mechitiw. —  at Mechitiw LDS Church, Weno, Chuuk, FSM (with Elder Tiffany)
He does not always have easy access to email, so we never know if a "letter" will come every week. However, since his P-day is on Monday (and they're a day ahead of us in Utah), we STALK the computer pretty much all afternoon on Sunday! He's learning how to give a little more details of what he is doing and we're learning to be patient. It takes a while to get packages and letters (in and out), so he was very hopeful that he had letters to read when they all went to Weno this week to pick up the mail. His brothers are faithful writers (especially Dylan!). He says things in Chuukese in his letters. We've "googled" and found the meanings of some, but I think we're going to need to get a Chuukese dictionary!
What a blessing it is to have this amazing young man on a mission! We miss him so much but are so extremely proud of him for his choice and desire to share the great knowledge of the gospel that he has been blessed with with the people of Micronesia! It is incredible to see the extreme growth in a 19-year old young man in just a short period of time. We are very grateful to a loving Heavenly Father who is watching over Elder McEwan and helping him to be His hands to these wonderful people!

  1. Rolex has fleshed out the Rolex Day-Date II replica watches collection much more than the Rolex Datejust II at this time. The Rolex Day-Date II is only available in precious metals and there is no steel version. You can get the Rolex President in 18k white gold, yellow gold, pink gold, or platinum. Reviewed here is the Rolex Day-Date II replica watches ref. 218235, which is actually the second least expensive Rolex President replica watches uk. The least expensive is about $2,700 cheaper in 18k yellow gold. That feels like a rather large price difference from 18k yellow to 18k pink gold, even if it is Rolex's in-house produced Everose gold whose color is said not to fade. Based on that information, you can see why the Rolex Day-Date II replica watches is the "fancier" model. Rolex replica watches sale has intentionally offered distinct metal choices so as to give each of the watches a different type of buyer. There are also other differences such as the available bracelet as well as the dial choices.
