Happy New Year

Again apologies for slacking on weekly big updates lately. New Year’s Resolution: send one each week even if it’s kinda short. Anyways, so there hasn’t been anything too crazy/noteworthy that’s happened recently. Just the same old thing.

My feet are back to being bad and gross and oozy so that’s not too much fun. But oh well. It’s just part of the job. I’ll try and get them taken care of this coming week.

This is the last week in this transfer. I’m hoping to go to Savaii but I reckon I’ll be here in Aleisa for 6 more weeks. I’m not sure if my companion will get transferred either. As far as we know he hasn’t gotten his visa yet to go to Papua. We’ll see if we get a call this coming Sunday.

Other than that we’re just trying to teach lessons, find new people, and offer people eternal life with their Heavenly Father.

Love you all so much and thanks for your love and patience.

Dad: Do you know anyone that has hiked across Upolu? I’d be up for that.
Rachel: How big of an island is it?
Elder Erickson: Big enough for that to be quite a hike. You can go for it, but I’ve had enough of walking in Samoa! 🙂
Elder Erickson: Mom, everyone that has served a mission knows that there are better ways to find people than knocking doors…
Dad: There might be better ways to find people, but few better ways to find oneself! Some of the best stories come from knocking doors…naked people, deaf in two languages people, etc. 🙂
Elder Erickson: Hey we get plenty of the naked types around here.
Mom: Whatever to Doran, Mr. Smarty Pants … you don’t even have doors in Samoa!
Elder Erickson: RT mom
