Hey hey hey family! Shea is lifting weights huh? We should arm wrestle! Hey since you are already getting shea some protein you should send me a bunch. I eat a lot of puda which is the island steroid! So i am getting Huge! 
This week was sweet, every night we got kids to bring us mai or puda every night so we would cook it together, squeeze the coconut milk in to it and cook some come or rice to have something else to go with it, ahh it was so awesome, it is so good, i love it! 
The food here is so good I like it more and more every day. My favorite food here is sukosuk puda and mai, mai is bread fruit if you forgot! 
This week there was a funeral and so that kind of messed with teaching and it was super weird! We had to drop a dollar in the coffin to get a plate of food haha it was weird!

Dear Jameson,
It was so awesome to hear from you, I'm so happy for you, sharing the
gospel with your Chuukese family!! The 18th was a beautiful day for
all of us! This week was a good week, I have been working in the
garden a lot getting everything planted and everything some water
which is a problem you do not have! It's just so beautiful where you
are, I bet nobody ever wants to leave.
The kittens are all doing good we gave away all of Mickeys and Calicos
kittens but I think Mickeys kittens were too young because Mickey was
miserable just so engorged with milk so we got 4 of the kittens back
to keep with there mother a while longer. That was a happy reunion.
Rainee even took 2 kittens! Big step into owning pets.
We are getting excited about our Mexico humanitarian trip, should be a
good experience. Shea has collected 5 missionary suits for his eagle
project to bring to Mexico for the new Elders. And 400 reading glasses
to give away so that is cool. Kaden would like to do an eagle project
for the people in Chuuk so you will have to let us know what you think
they might need.
I love my primary class, last week we gave them their own Book of
Mormon, they were so excited, this week we talked about how important
it is to have scriptures to help us keep the commandments. In
sacrament the topic was also on scriptures and how important it was
for Lehi to go back and get the scriptures, so they could teach there
children and the generations to come. I love the scriptures and I love
church so I can recommit myself to read more consistently and with
greater purpose. As a family we read the Joseph Smith history, and now
we are going to read the Pearl of Great Price, we set a goal to read
and pray every night and we have made it 3 weeks!! I'm so glad that
you love the scriptures, what an opportunity to dedicate 2 years to
the Lord, and then after your mission you just keep doing it, and your
life will be so blessed.
It's memorial weekend so the kids don't have school on Monday then
they only have 1 week left yaaa.
We are on our way to the cemetery to see grandma Hunters parents,
tomorrow we will go to my dads grave, then have a picnic with my mom
so that should be fun.
I ran 10 miles on Saturday my last mile the "eye of the tiger" song
came on and I ran faster and thought of YOU!
I love you so much, I'm so happy for you, and so proud, I talk about
you to everyone!
Can't wait to hear from you, we just love your letters, and look
forward to it all week.
Take care my boy, I love you!
Have a great day and sleep sweet at night,
Love Mom

Tiffany's Home Coming & Big Mans Baptism

Hey family how is it going, you have no idea, how freaking good I am
doing! This week was probably the best week so far on my mission. Was Landon baptized on may 18? If he was that is the coolest thing in the whole word. Because this Saturday I baptized two people
Big Man, and Atong!!!!!! Oh it was the best thing ever, and because
Landon got baptized on the same day that makes it soooo much better.
It was amazing, we had the baptism at the end of this coral dock type
thing it was way amazing. Ohh haha and I gave a talk!! So Landon can
just pretend that I gave a talk at his baptism and talked about theHoly Ghost! 
But no one would under stand me at Landon's baptism because I
talked in chuukese. It was a scary experience but an amazing experience. The
baptisms were soooo good, everyone loves me so they both wanted me to
baptize them, Tanner was right!!! The good looking missionaries get way
more baptisms hahah. The baptisms were super good, all three of us were just smiling the whole time. 
I want to send you the pictures super bad because they are so sweet but
the internet isn't working great. We are killing it Elder Huppe and I, we are
hoping to have another baptism this week.
You don't need to worry about me at all, I love  it here, I am being taken care of for sure.
Thank you for all of the prayers I can truly feel them, especially
on those hard days.
I love you all so much. Tell Britni that she is going to be the best missionary ever, and she will love Alaska. Tell her I love her and she should wear a really big coat so I know she is warm.
Chuuk is awesome I love it more and more everyday. I love you so much! 
Tell Landon I have his present. I am just waiting until I have a bunch of crazy cool stuff to send home. 
I can't believe Landon got baptized the same day that I baptized my two chuukese brothers, pretty cool. Love you all so much! 
Love, Elder Hunter

ps. send lots of peanut butter and cliff bars
pps. I am getting my companion to go vegetarian with me! hahaha I'm

We just had the greatest Sunday ever right after church we drove up to Centerville to the Tiffany's home coming it was awesome! There were about 8 elders that came and sang the Chuukese Mission song, so cool. We got to talk to elder Jones, he said what a great missionary you are and that you are learning the language quickly, he was very impressed with you, the vegetarian that eats meat haha! He also  said that lots of people really like you are now more interested in the church!! We also talked to Elder Fisher who was Elder Huppe's trainer, he opened up the Wichap area and he was so excited that you are teaching Big Man!! It was super cool to talk to the Elders and the Tiffany's they also said how well you are learning the language, they said you will be a trainer in no time. They said where you are is definitely the most primitive but the most beautiful. Elder Fisher said he got robbed 12 times but it didn't matter that much, you would see some one in your clothes and they would just give it back to you, they don't think of it as robbing just sharing. Tiffany's  said the scary looking gangsters are really nice people they just look scary. They all talked about the kids how they are everywhere and how cute they are and how even 18 month old kids use Machetes! They said thankfully there are no guns, said the people are mostly peaceful except when they are drunk. Told us about this old guy named Frosty how he would wear crazy  outfits every day, speedo vest and boots, his favorite!! He would always say "Elders can I have a dollar" Elder Tiffany would say you give me $5 and I will give you a dollar! Haha so many crazy stories, I hope you are keeping a journal!!
Anyways it was great to get a feel for what it's like where you are, and talk to people who were with you! All the elders just thought it was the adventure of a life time!
Landon's baptism was awesome!! You are his greatest example and your not even here. He got scripture and a case just like you, and he wanted a new tie just like Jameson! And he picked out a way cool tie!!
Thank you for being you!! Shea gave a talk on Baptism and Kaden gave a talk on the Holy Ghost. They did an awesome job! It was an amazing day!
We hope we hear from you today, I love you so much, have an awesome day.
Love you , Mom

Peanut butter and Nutella

Thank you so much for that last package, peanut butter and nutella was that best thing in the world. I never knew that I missed it that much, and peanut butter is crazy expensive here. For one the same size that you sent me it is 8 or 9 dollars. Every morning, we buy these little banananas from this kid, and they are way smaller then any other bananas. They are a little bigger than your thumb, I will send pictures. It is awesome I put like 15 bananas on a plate and put peanut butter and nutella on them and eat while I study. It was the best thing ever. Transfers are this week, so people are going all over this place but we dont know yet.
I have been doing super great. The work is awesome Elder Huppe and I have been teaching so many people we are going to get a ton of baptisms.
We like never have power though, haha it is awesome.
So did get my letter with my memory and all the pictures? I was worried that it wouldn't make it, you have to hide expensive stuff like in peanut butter or a box of cookies.
I have been doing a lot of push ups and pull ups every morning, I want to go running but Elder Huppe is still hurt. This week Elder Jones went home, I couldn't believe it. I swear that I just meet him. He has been a really good missionary, he helped me a ton with everything, expecialy the language, he could speak chuukese like he was a native it was amazing. I loved him. I can't believe that I have been out a transfer, time is flying. Sorry I can't send longer letters. 

Oh guess what, I am starting to get some crazy facial hair. I have to shave everyday or I look like a mountain man. I cant wait to grow a huge beard! i

Love you all so much!

Love Elder Hunter

A Picture is worth 1000

We didn't get an email this week but we got a memory card in the mail with all these cool pictures.
