2nd letter

Dear Mom and Dad,

I sent you a letter last Wednesday, (5-6-09) but I guess you never got it. Of Course. Anyways, I'm alive. I'm doing pretty good. I've got a great companion. I've got and awesome district too. There's six Elders and four Hermana's and we're all going to the same mission so it's pretty sweet. Oh and the other district (of 6 elders) that's like three weeks farther along than us is worried we're going to know more Spanish than them soon. Spanish is not easy and I can't spell in English anymore because Spanish spelling makes so much sense. Anyways, I've learned so much already, like the way I taught the first lesson to you guys was pretty much stupid. It's so much easier this way, but you have to have the spirit or it's just the discussions that were before "Preach My Gospel" But that's about it. I can't really think of anything else, at least I won't until after this is in the mail box. Yo se que JesuCristo vive.

Mom's turn : just to let all you people that are thinking I"m a terrible Mom for not writing him, I did sent him a letter as soon as we got his first one, he just didn't get it before he wrote this letter.

I'm Alive

First letter: May 6 2009 (We think, he didn't actually date the letter, but it's postmarked the 7th, so the 6th seemed like a safe guess.)

Dear Parents,

Hi, I'm alive. Umm... my alarm clock broke during transit. I'm trying to fix it but it doesn't look good. other than that I'm alive. That's really about it. They told us to tell you that I'm alive, so I did... I can't
really think of anything else. So, write you in about a week.

Okay, now it's time for Brigette's portion of the blog post.


2.) This letter was written on grph paper. I find this very cool, my mom and sister think it's bizarre.

3.) You can probably expect most of his letters to be about this long. I warned you: Cameron is a man of few words.

4.) He didn't write "love," "sincerely," or even, "your kid" before he signed it. He just signed it... with his full name.

5.) I hate having lists of only four things, so here's my pretend fifth thing.

Greetings Earthlings

Hi there,
This is Brigette. Cameron got set apart as a missionary today and I decided to take it upon myself to set up a blog for him. The goal is to have Mom (or me, I guess) post the stuff he sends home so that you all can be kept up-to-date on his life. Now, this is not an excuse to not write him, but it is partially intended to appease you when he doesn't write you back because, face it, he probably won't. He's not a big writer. Tonight he admitted that the only reason he'll be sending letters home to Mom and Dad as often as he will be is because the mission president is going to make him.

Anyway, that's your little intro to Cameron's blog. If it goes un-updated for too long, talk to my mom. :-D
