May 11, 2015

Well, this is it.  This week was great.  I pretty much ignored the fact that I'm going home, and did what I'd do anyways.  It was great.  And then last night, I took some time and packed my belongings, and later today we're going to buy some last souvenirs, and then visit some of my favorite members, then I'm going to buy martabak and ice cream and have the best final dinner ever, and then tomorrow at 4 in the morning I'll get picked up at the house by a brother from church and my plane to Jakarta leaves at 6:15. It lands in Jakarta at 8:30.  Then I'll go the mission office, get interviewed, get all my stuff together and weighed, etc, the hope is to leave with Elder Barrus and do missionary work at 12 until 4ish, because we have a farewell dinner at 5 and then a fireside at 6, and after that we're leaving for the airport immediately.  It's going to be a crazy day.  Our group flies to Hong Kong then part ways heading to the states.  I’m with Elder Kyle until Seattle.  Well, I gotta get going.  But I love you all, and I can't wait to see you later!

Hello, everyone,
So....  We had a good week, and this next week is going to be the best week.  We're going to make it the best week.
The highlight was when we had a baptism for an 11 year old son of a new member.  His dad baptized him, and it was a really neat experience.
Because my life seems really boring from a non-Elder Heiner point of view, how about you just come by the house in 11 or 12 days and I'll answer all your questions.  Then you can just hear the cool stuff you're interested in and not just a bunch of boring writing.  I'm not lacking motivation to do missionary work, but writing this just seems kind of pointless because I'll be home so soon, and it would be so much faster/easier in person.  So have a great week!

We did some service out in the middle of nowhere.
It was great.
Pretty much the biggest spider I've ever seen.
It fell down from a tree and passed out (we think).
It is about as big as my hand all spread out.
I have a picture in comparison with my foot but for some
reason the computer won't let me send it.
Me on the volcano.
