Not a whole lot of news from New Mexico. Elder Eppich is kind of decided that he doesn't have to much time for letter writing. He seems to be very busy in the mission work. He is still in Portales New Mexico and loving it. He is training a brand new missionary from a small town in Idaho. His name is Elder Ward. He says he is very shy and quiet but that he is a great kid and is going to be a great missionary once he opens his mouth. He is giving him lots of opportunities to talk. The work is going great there. They have just welcomed a new mission President. Haven't heard anything about the new President yet. Nate hated to see President Robinson leave. He is very busy and very hot , the temp stays in the 100's this time of year with lots of fires around the state.
He said he realizes that his mission is winding down to the last 6 months and there is so much work to do. He apologizes often that he doesn't write much but welcomes anyone that would like to drop a line. He said he is having the time of his life and really enjoying mission life.
