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!!

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!
