Mega Post

Alrighty let's clear some things up here: I apologize for not writing since the last post, I know some people are a little angry with me (*cough cough* Kitty Carter), so I will try and make up for lost time!
I will just put a bunch of pictures up and explain the things that I have been doing lately.

I went to the Dome of the Rock!

I went to the YMCA with my friends Tye, Hannah, and Spencer in West Jerusalem and played the Carillon Bells! 

 I went to Tel-Beersheba and walked through an underground tunnel, which is why my friends Hunter, Lindee, and I are wearing those AWESOME yellow hard hats!

We went to Orson Hyde Gardens, which is right by the center, and saw this cool view of the city with the sun shining on it.

 At an amphitheater in Jerash with a live 3 man band playing the bagpipes and drums for us!

I RODE A CAMEL AND IT WAS THE BEST THING EVER! He wasn't even that stinky.

 My friend Nicky and I atop a mountain in Petra, you can see the Monastery behind us!

On top of the world!

 I can do fun tricks.

At the Amman Citadel with some of my friends

 Chloe and I at dinner one night in West Jerusalem. Contrary to the expressions upon our faces, but we really did enjoy those mini kosher burgers! Also we got some gelatto afterwards, and it was the best dang gelatto we have ever partaken of!

 My friends Jessica, Taylor, Hannah, Lindee, Sarah, Sarah, Susana, Chaille and Emily. I like them all.

 Once a bird pooped on my arm...I was not happy.

 Some caves where we sang...also there were scary bats, but don't worry I didn't provoke them in any way.

 These are some of my friends Spencer, Chaille, Mikkel, Sarah, and Jenessa, also my teacher Brother Judd. He's probly one of my most favorite people ever.

This is a picture of me in my floppy hat and wolf tshirt. Mom loves my sense of fashion out here.

My friends Tye, Lindee and I reenacted the David and Goliath story. I should never be trusted with a sling shot, however no animals or people were harmed in the taking of this photo

I have been called to serve in the Fiji Suva Mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I report to the Provo MTC on May 29th, and I will be speaking the Fijian Language! I AM SO INCREDIBLY HAPPY AND BLESSED! Seriously, reading my call was the happiest moment of my life so far. I can't wait to feel this way every single day for the next year and a half! 

Happy tears...I'm so lucky to have Chloe here with me. Hopefully it makes up for the next little while that I'll be leaving her...


  1. Here is my Mega Comment.
    1) I miss you and your guys so much!!!
    2) picture number three looks glorious. Did you hear angels singing? I did!
    3) Should I break it to Jenessa that her parents were the teeniest but dyslexic with her name? Clearly that should be an L. I mean, I'm older so I'm always right. Right?
    4) How did I not know Petra was a monastery?
    5) I hope you busted a move for that three man band. I am sure you did
    6) I am so excited about your mission call it's not even right.
    7) Henry has been walking around saying "Kawa? Kawa?" Maybe he's been dreaming a out you?
    8) I could go on but won't. I love you. The end.

  2. I LOVE YOU SO MUCH. AND CHLOE. please Kurra, give her a BIG HUG for me!!!
    I'm so proud and excited for you... I got a little teary eyed reading the words to your mission call again and seeing the pictures. I WISH I COULD HAVE BEEN THERE.
