Everyone's freaking out, we didn't even know he was in Salt Lake! (Maybe the APs knew) We're not sure if he's already been set apart or not, but it's kind of crazy that we have a General Authority 70 for a mission President. We were like "what?!" When they read his name and they showed him taking his seat of  the stand. Honestly no one's really surprised, everyone pretty much knew, we just didn't realize it would be while he's still our mission president??? We wanted to text him and tell him to touch his nose 3 times to say hi, but we figured he didn't have his phone on him lol.

Here is the LINK to Read about the new General Authority members of the Quorum of the Seventy. (As a side note, the mission president that just finished serving last year here in Milwaukee was called as an Area Seventy!) Such selfless and thoughtful people that will serve anyone, anywhere!

That's cool I didn't realize  Pres. Cutler was called too! That's awesome! Also the Allan stake president (the city just north of plano), got called to be an area 70 as well! Elder Finlinson lived with him in his last area.

Conference was good, but Pres. Monson isn't looking well, I guess he's got dementia now, and is in a wheel chair when he's not talking at conference. I'm wondering who will be next because the next 3 guys are like 90+. I'm pretty certain Bednar will be one.

In other news, our area is being split up. We're getting hermanas that are moving over from Carrolton. It was the zone leaders idea, and Pres. Taylor said ok, so I'm sure it'll be good but I'm not bananas about it. I'm not sure there's enough work for it here. There used to be hermanas here, like a year or so ago, and they moved them out, so I'm not sure there's more work now than there was a year ago. I'm jealous though because they're going to live with the Adams, the family that fed me on my birthday and do pretty much everything for us (including our laundry lol), the patron saints of Plano. We'll see how it goes.

Other than that not much going on. We're teaching a couple people. We have 2 nine years Olds who will probably be getting baptized soon. Other than not not much going on.

Love you guys!
Elder Hogg

It's been rainy, the view right outside our apartment

Elder Finlinson is sometimes called Elder Goldblum! Lol.

Also! We finally made it over to culvers!! It tasted amazing!!!! Elder Finlinson is in love with it as well. He loves custard, so we've been on the hunt lately.

but you can't the Wisconsin out of the boy! :)
