We did not receive an e-mail from Elder Payne this weekend but we did get to talk to him on the phone!
Jeffery is enjoying his area in Guam. He said that there are a surprising number of people on Guam that speak Chuukese and other languages from the other islands. His companion is Elder Rice from Burley Idaho. Elder Rice will complete his mission in December so Jeff thinks he will be the one to send Elder Rice home. Jeff will be able to e-mail much more often because the Internet in Guam is way more reliable in Guam!
Jeffery has to get used to Guam, his last island Uman was only a mile across and he could walk around it in no time at all. Plus there weren't very many modern conveniences (like Taco Bell and McDonalds). Jeffery's first two purchases on Guam were at McDonalds and Taco Bell. As Jeff would put it, ha ha ha. But he is determined not to re-gain all the weight he lost in his first areas.
One of Dodie's former co-workers, Justin, and his family now live in Guam and they were able to contact Jeffery and his companions. They treated the missionaries to some New Mexico enchiladas!! So much for keeping the weight off :)
And Justin provided us with some great pictures!
