Week 2 - Cool, Hardworking, Athletic and Spiritual

Hi Mom!!! 
I hope dad feels better and tell him that I will be praying for him. I've met so many people down here who went to BYU, and they are all like "Wait, are you related to Lakei?" and I roll my eyes...because it seems no matter how far away I go, I can't get away from Dad's influence! I know Hema, Helam and Hevynn all had the same thing happen to them on their missions and they were all over the world. But that's a good thing. 
I also hope things go well with Alyssa and Norma too. Tell them I love them and tell Norma and Hema to name the baby Houston....It will definitely be handsome and athletic if they do ;) 
That's awesome about Hevynn! I'm so proud of her. Tell Jesse that I'm so happy with his decision to serve and I'll be lookin' forward to see where he's going! 
Oh and I haven't bought a bike yet because I don't need it yet.... I'll get one probably in the next 2 transfers. 
Oh and mom tell Helam to tear it up on the field. One of the things I think about when I'm about to sleep is Helam and the games I'll be missing. I'm sad about that. But tell him to keep being an animal.
Okay so things are crazy here. When we landed it was funny because there was 30 of us coming off the plane in Indiana, so just imagine a herd of buffalo coming off the plane. Then give all the buffalo name tags and that was our group! We were greeted by President and Sister Cleveland and Elder Gubler (I went to Bountiful with him and he's still one of the coolest guys ever).

We also got to see the new temple that's being built and it is awesome! Then we went to the transfer meeting and I got paired up with Elder Freeman. I'm blessed to have such a cool, hardworking, athletic and spiritual companion for my trainer. The only downside is he played for Logan [Grizzlies] so I kinda hate him and he kinda hates me, too. Haha, jk!! He's awesome and I love him. 

I found out there are a lot more Polys here than I thought! I saw Cameron [Hansen] too and he's lookin' and doin' good. In our district, our DL is Elder Moli from Oakland. He knows Tolu and Jojo and he is related to 'Ou. Elder Naire is his companion and he's from Ukraine. So the fun never ends haha. 

I am finally into the real work and it is tough. People in Indiana are very religious. There's a different church on every corner. People in general are just so proud and kinda stubborn. Here it's hard to find people to teach. They make the choice not to listen. And yet I've met so many GREAT people here that I know everything will be alright. God will always be there and I know we are on His errand, so we'll just keep working hard. 

Tell the family I love them and I am praying for them. Love you mom, and thank you for everything you do for me.

Your favorite Elder Heimuli

P.S. Yeah, so I left my cord in my apartment haha. I'll send the pics of the mish next week...sorry. I am forwarding you one of my district in the MTC. I miss my awesome district!

P.P.S. Thank you for sending me that obituary for Coach Evans. Please give his family my love and appreciation. I can't even tell you in words how grateful I am to Coach Evans, he was such a great man and I really do love him. Bountiful [Braves] football will never be the same.

Sounds like he's doing well. I love his pose - must be a male Heimuli thing.
