12.28.2011 Two Letters in One Post

(Sent on 12/272011)


The library was closed on Monday, and we had to email at an odd time on Tuesday. I have no time, and I'll have to let everyone know what happened next week. It was great getting to talk to my family on Christmas though. I hope everyone still had a great Christmas! Talk to you all next Monday,

Hello Everyone!

I'm really short on time as usual today, but it doesn't matter all that much because I get to call next Sunday! I think I'm going to call sometime in the two hour block after Church for us (we just have Sacrament meeting and it ends at 11:00 for us, so sometime between 9:00 and 11:00 your time). We're visiting some people later in the day, so that should work out the best I think. I'll probably only be able to talk for about half an hour or so, maybe 40 minutes. It'll be good to talk though! I'm excited.

You'll have to say hi to Jake Burns and Daniel Phillips for me. I hope they're doing well; they both were examples to me. I remember one time that Daniel gave me a ride home from school as I was walking, and I thought that was pretty nice of him to just stop as he was driving by. Jake was I think the person who first got me interested in Cedar Badge, which I loved and feel like it's made a  big difference in my life. They're good guys.

Sorry, I'm out of time this week. I'll do better next week. However, I do get to call home this next Sunday! . I hope everyone has a great Christmas! It should be a nice Christmas here. Hopefully it snows though! Have a great week!

12.05.2011 "Letter to Mother" (Trevor's Grandmother--posted by rebecca)

Hi Mother,

Thanks for the quick email. I love you too and I hope things are going well back at home. Tell Big that I said hi too and I love him. 

If you're ever wondering what I'm doing during the day, here is a quick rundown of the general schedule we follow (eastern time):
Sundays we have church at 11:00am
6:30  We wake up, exercise, eat breakfast, and shower
8:00  We have Personal Study for an hour
9:00  We have companion study for an hour
10:00 - 10:15ish  We head out and start visiting people, teaching, or knocking on doors
Sometime during the day we take an hour for lunch
Sometime between 5:00 and 7:00pm we often have a dinner appointment at a member's house
9:00 to 9:30  We end proselyting work for the day and start planning for the next day.
10:30ish  We pray and go to sleep (We need to be a little better about being on time for that)

Wednesdays we have District Meeting from 9:00 - 10:30am and then an hour for lunch directly afterward as a district.

Mondays are Preparation days, and for email we usually get online between 10:30 and 11:30 to start.

I did get that card, and I'm going to finish it tonight and send it back tomorrow. Thanks for the snowflakes! I'll keep an eye out for your card too, thanks Mother!

Love, Elder Trevor Casper
