July 1, 2013 Q and A's

1. What are the names of members you are living with and info about them?
The members we live with are Adam and Gina Smart. And they are FANTASTIC!! Gina is a convert, and her testimony is Awesome! And Adam is an early morning seminary teacher and super great! They actually remind me so much of you and dad! It's crazy sometimes the things that Brother Smart says, I feel right at home! And from day one he's had this total Fatherly Love overload thing. They weren't prepared to have missionaries come and stay, and were only planning on keeping us until someone else offered to take us off their hands, but as of yesterday, they told us that they love us and they're wanting to keep us around. which is good, we love them!
2. Can you just buy a reusable grocery bag at the store?  I was going to mail you some, however, the mail is so slow, I didn't want you to have to wait! Sister Smart actually gave us one, and we've just been taking a couple trips from the car to the house, it's no big deal really.
3.How does the monthly money work?  Well, since we're visa waiters, we didn't get monthly money cards like everyone else, so we're waiting for the AP, who has his hands full, to bring us our Money.
4.Could you please translate your following sentences for us.  We are just wondering each letter what it all means?(and Google translate doesn't transfer over exactly?)
Para Siempre Dios Este Con Vos = God be with you till we meet again!
Hasta Luego= (until later) see you later
Con mucho amor= with much love/all my love
Hola Mis Queridos = Hello My Darlings/Dears
Translations are kind of funny and different sometimes, not direct.
5. What day is P-day and what do you do on that day? P-days are Monday. But as of right now in my mission I've only had about 2 "regular" p-days. Crazy things are happening out here in Seattle, and with all the changes, the schedule varies widely.
6. How are your clothes holding up?  Are you good now on shoes?  Do you need any more oils before you leave the country?  OR any thing else that we can TRY and get in a package to you before you leave Seattle?
I'm good on clothes I think... Shoes are good. I'm just going to have to play it by ear. There's no way of knowing here what I'm really going to need....
7.What are you doing for the 4th of July? We're not sure. Probably just another regular day. sometimes in the past they've had lock-downs, but we don't think they will. Our new mission president gets here today, so we'll see if anything changes... it doesn't get dark enough before our curfew, so no fireworks for us. Light some for me, ok?
