It's hard to believe I only have a bit over a month left. I feel like time is accelerating every week. This week was pretty good. We have 3 people with baptismal dates for the last weeks of November, so hopefully they keep going to church and their dates don't fall through. This last week was Día de los Muertos so it was kind of difficult to find people to teach. Everyone was too busy going to parties and such haha. I'm glad you had a good week. I'm sure Lion King was cool. As far as school, it looks like everything is good, I only need to hear from the music school. I'm a bit worried though because I haven't received any kind of confirmation email or anything to know if they received my application and everything. My registration date is this Friday, so as soon as I hear from them, I will be able to sign up for classes. I'm really excited that they're almost done with the Gilbert temple. Hopefully we can go to the dedication. Anyway, I hope you have a fantastic week. I love you. Love, Elder Janda

10/28/13 Everything here is going well. I'm trying to fill out the FERPA form. But the system is being difficult. But don't worry, I'll get it in. It's crazy to think that Courtney is old enough to go on dates. Weird haha. Yesterday, my companion and I got to speak in Sacrament meeting. It was his first time giving a talk in Spanish. He did really well though. I normally stay focused, but sometimes I get distracted figuring out what classes to take or thinking about finding a job when I get home or such things. I normally only get distracted when I talk with other missionaries that are going home soon as well haha. I'll see if I can find some masks. They aren't too expensive, but there sometimes hard to find in my area. But seeing as it's almost halloween, there are a lot of places selling costumes, so I'll see what I can do haha. This week I was talking to my bishop here and he told me that his daughter and her family recently moved to Chandler. They're in the Cooper 2nd ward haha. What a small world. haha Well, I'm going to try and get everything figured out for ASU so hopefully next week I can get registered for classes. I love you so much. Thank you a ton for everything, especially for all the help with ASU. You are the best. I love you :) Love, Elder Janda
