Letters coming!

Letter's are to come. Kathi has been pretty tied up. Nate is doing SO good. He is still in Alpine, TX. It is SO hot there. Last week he was in one of the hottest places in the States. He was in a bike accident and was in need of a CAT scan but everything checked out good, just a concusion.
He is doing well. Loves Alpine, the people are amazing there. He had a wonderful baptism Sunday. He gave 2 talks in one afternoon and he felt he did pretty well. Nate is not a man of manny words so this is good for him. He writes wonderful letters home and we enjoy hearing of his growth and maturity. He loves his mission and is working hard.

Elder Eppich and his minature donkey!

Letter to Dad & Mom

Hey! Dad; You know Dad you say that you are glad you are not farming when the weather goes bad like it has. To tell you the truth I miss farming alot. I know that I wasn't the hardest worker at times, I still miss it. I actually miss moving pipe, lol. That may be a shocker for you but if someone came up to me right now and asked me to move pipe for them I would jump on it in a heartbeat, lol. That's how I feel about the farm now that I am away from it. I did get your letter and it was an amazing letter Dad, I am not going to lie it brought tears to my eyes. I love you Dad and look forward to spending time with you when I get home from my mission. I know that I wasn't the most patient kid in the world when I was home but that is something that I have been working on out here and sometimes I am forced to work on being patient. I need that Christlike attribute out here so it is a good thing to work on. Sounds like you are working hard on the bids, sorry to hear that you didn't get that one job. Sounds like economy plays a big part in weather you get jobs or not. How is the farm doing anyway's? About Grandpa and Grandma, I have written them but they haven't wrote me back so just to let you know I have thought about them and I have written to them. . How is Grandpa's back anyway? Dad we have this 60 yr old man in our ward here that runs 5 miles a day, he is in way good shape, maby you should think about that so you will be strong and healthy when I get home. We are still on schedual with Daniel for June 19, I am way excited about that. The other investigators are doing alright. We are still working with them. Well I will make sure and be careful riding those minature donkey's, they can get pretty physical, lol. Love ya lots and take care. Love Elder Eppich

Hey! Mom: HaHa you almost forgot that it was letter day! I can't believe this, lol. I never forget about letter day, lol. I love my letters. So Dad beat you to the computer huh. Well I guess since he wakes up at like 4 in the morning it is understandable, lol. How I would like to work the pictures is if you can send me another SD card and then I will have a few to work with and I can send one at a time home and you can unload it and send it back to me. That is what the guys here are doing and it seems to work for them. Elder Rymer got his short sleeve shirts from Mr. Mac. Don't worry Mom I won't be jumping off any buildings here with my big shirts, even if I tried to do that I wouldn't even get hurt because there are no tall buildings big enough to jump off of and get hurt, small town, lol. Sounds like things have been really busy with your calling. Time flies when you are busy. I can't believe I have been here in Alpine for a month now. It dosen't seem like it. Right now I wish I wasn't here because I have to give a 20 minute talk this next Sunday. I am not real excited about that because I have never talked for 20 min. Just maby 10 min and that was hard enough. I will get through it just fine I am sure. Mom I am glad that you are enjoying your calling. I am glad that you are loving it. This calling is going to bless you very much. I have really realized that I will be blessed greatly from being here on my mission. I have also realized how important family is and also how important time is. You know back home, 2 years seemed like a long time but here on the mission it is so short. My Zone Leader was talking to me one day and he said that you can work really hard and work through sicknesses and trials or you can just be lazy and not do anything, you will be wasting the Lord's time, and either way you are here for 2 years so you might as well work as hard as you can. I felt like that was great advice from a great guy. Out here in Alpine we ride bikes about 3 hours a day then drive the car and sometimes walk. Elder Rymer and I are starting a workout plan to keep in shape. Daniel is on track for baptism for the 19 and we are way excited for Saturday to come. This guy is such a cool guy. He is the coolest kid ever. He actually reminds me of Laurin's Taylor alot. This kid is so funny. I do see some of the guys that I came on the mission with. I see one of them every week and I get to see Clark every 6 weeks at Zone conf. I haven't got to see Elder Reay yet, I really want to see that kid, I miss him. So Mom I am glad that you are reading your scriptures every morning. They really do help us have the right attitude for the day. It makes your day go 100% better. Just curious, have you been using my phone? Well I had better get going. I do hope everything is going good for you Mom. I love you lot's and your take care.
Love Elder Eppich

Elder Eppich thinks he is a Texan.

Enjoying the Mission

Hey! Mom:)
I think you and Dad need a new computer. That is crazy that it keeps shutting off. I know that Dad does write really awesome letters. So you couldn't find fitted short sleeve shirts. My companion has fitted short sleeve shirts. I just hate these shirts because they are just to big and they stick out big time in the back and I hate it. It is really annoying, it makes me look like I have a parashoot on, lol. I could probably jump off a building and fly away, lol. If you can't find any short sleeve ones then maby you could cut some off. How long will that take? I haven't gotten Kacie's CD's yet. They went to my last address, I told my last companion to forward them to me but I don't think he will do that. Thank you for getting the razor. That will be way nice and it will make it so my hair on my face won't grow as fast. lol. My new companion is so awesome, I love that kid. I have learned so much from him. It is way nice having a companion that actually wants to work. It sure makes time fly. It is pretty sweet. The area is amazing. The people here are so nice and they feed us alot. Because we get fed so much Elder Rymer and I have to go running every other day so we don't gain any weight, lol. I am going to send some pictures on the e-mail, do you want me to send some in the mail also? So the Sr. class went to Silverwood. Awesome! I understand about Lexi playing on Sunday. It is kind of hard sometimes, when you don't play on Sunday. You have to make sure that you are very good so that they will need you on the other days. I am glad that you guys didn't let us play on Sundays. It has blessed me and it has blessed our family. I have realized that from being out here on my mission. Thanks!
Shoot you can't wait to see Rex! I really can't wait to see that little kid. I have heard he is so fun to play with, I hear that he is in a really fun stage. I finally got a letter from Keldon. It was actually a pretty long one. It was way nice to hear from him, I got pretty excited when the letter came. I am so happy for him since he has lost all that weight, he needs to keep it up. The family that I was telling you about. We see them about 2 to 3 times a week. I was telling them about the cabin in Priest Lake. The kid Ryan wants to come up to the cabin when I get home from the mission. I thought that would be way cool if that was able to happen. Well, I love this area of Alpine. It will be up there as one of my favorites. On Monday we had a lesson with a guy named Daniel. It was the most amazing lesson ever. He said that he has felt like he has had something missing his whole life. We gave him the Book of Mormon, he could feel that it was the missing piece of his life. He said when he opened the Book of Mormon he said it felt like someone turned on a light. We asked him if he would like to be baptized and he said "yes". His date is set for June 19th. It was such an amazing experience, I loved it. I thought I would share that with you. Well I had better get going. I love you very much and I hope you guys have a fun trip. Keep it real, lol. In other words, be safe and have fun. Love ya lots. Love Elder Eppich

Hey! Paps;
How ya been? Well, that is pretty much lame that the computer keeps doing that to your letters. You should just get another one, just kidding. I do appreciate your letters Dad. I agree with you, attitude does change the mood that is around you. I have noticed that , the happier you are the more people want to talk to you, it is also alot funner. It has been much easier to have a good attitude towards everything since I was transfered and I got a new companion. OK! Dad, so Monday was an awesome experience because we taught this one kid named Daniel , he is way
legit,( which means cool, awesome, it is real) We started to teach him and in the middle of the lesson he said that he has felt like a part of him has been missing so we gave him the Book of Mormon and he opened it and when he opened it he said it was like a light turned on, he could tell that it was the missing piece and everything that we told him is what he needs and that it made so much sense. We committed him to get baptized on June 19 and he said yes. Baptism's are the best thing on the mission. Well, I just wanted to let you know about that. I love ya so much Dad. You are a great example to me. I hope all is going good for you. I better get going, I can't wait for your letter.
I love ya lots! Love Elder Eppich
