Hey Everyone,
It's still going great here. Elder Russel M. Nelson gave a devotional here last tuesday and someone else will be speacking tonight. I don't know who yet and it might not be a gen. authority because conference is so soon.
Umm in the Haloween package I don't know what I want except the rest of my black socks. They run out pretty fast.
I'm going to have to wait til i'm in the field to send pics
So i've been avoiding the Chocolate milk and eating the salads, my pants are fitting better now! it's great. I love mission life.... The shirts, ties, name tags, and the crazy schedule, it's so great!
So what are the Tennessee scores? I heard about Florida :( but what about other games? Put them in a DearElder please.
Thanks for figuring out the dear elder stuff. I liked getting letters, keep em coming.
I'm having a lot of fun here. Whenever I do miss home as soon as i get a little sad it's time to go to class or eat or study so I hardly have time! Sure I'm looking forward to coming home but not untill I've done my work! I can't wait to get out into the field. One more week! Weeks fly by here too so it'll feel like about 2 days or so. I can't wait to go to devotional tonight. Last time i was in the choir.   We sang Consider The Lillies to an Apostle and he thanked us for the unforgettable music! it was so cool! Well thanks in advance for the Haloween package. How about a Christmas mix CD of all the MoTab Christmas songs?
I'm so excited to get out in the field. The MTC is either Spiritual Boot camp or the Lord's prison. There's these great mountains and I can't get close... Snow is probably coming there's really good weather and fall colors are showing up. I went to the Provo Temple and took some pictures of the grounds. I thought you'd like to see how it is and compare. I think it works differently out here with the grounds crew. I think they get a lot of help from BYU students.
Anyway keep those letters coming, words from home really help.

This is Elder Damewood's first email.  He talked about his ankle in the email.  The day before he left he rolled it in the back yard just walking around.

Oh mani just realized i don'thave my camera or card on me. Thepictures will be in next weeks email.
Anyway wheni got here i met my companion elder rowe. he's so cool. he's from arizona and he's really great
the Spirit is so strong here. I've never felt this great 24/7.
Thank you so much for all the support over the years. I don't think i could have made it this far wothout you. It means the world to me.
Brooke, the other Elders in my room tasted your lemon bars. They loved them! thank you so much for making them. I love you, Avatar State Yip Yip!
The weather here is amazing! It is cool in the mornings and warm in the day.
The mountains are bigger than i imagined. They thake up half the sky!
The classes here are so intense. Not only do my great teachers teach me the Spirit teaches me even more. I feel more ready to teach every day. All this focus is tiring though. I hit the pillow and just fall asleep only to wake up at 6:30 feeling like i only blinked. I'm so busy here that I'm too busy to even miss home.
I sang in the choir sunday and I'm going later today. We're singing Consider the Lilies. The director told us about the song. he said when Jesus left to get the one lost sheep he counted the 99 to make sure they were there first. He still takes care of the ones who are doing good. That was really comforting.
My ankle is doing better. It still hurts and gets swollen some times.
So P-Day is tuesday here at the MTC. I'll  be sending these letters to you every week. I'll try and remember to bring my picture equipment next time. I have some great ones.
Dad, This is what we would call camping weather! It's so nice out I wish i didn't have to have my classes inside. Have a good one man! I love you so much.
Mom, Thanks for all you've done to get me this far. When I was unpacking I was so thankful for all the preparations you made. I have everything I need. It means a lot. Thanks I love you.

Thank you so much for your prayers.
Elder Damewood
