Dear Family, Due to the swine flu, they say they will not let me write my e-mails because I am not wearing a mask. Silly Mongolians. Anyways, work is good. I might not be able to finish this e-mail...I'm very sorry! But we'll be writing very soon ok? I love you all! ~The non-infected Elder James Cappuccio -----Original Message----- From: email@example.com To: firstname.lastname@example.org Date: Sun, 18 Oct 2009 23:40:47 -0400 Subject: Missionary held captive until June 6th Dear James, Well at least it's a good captive....captivated by the spirit of missionary work! I don't mind if you stay a few extra weeks, it's normal to want to keep working as long as you can, you're only a young missionary once! Next time you go you will be old, well at least older. And you could still take a summer class if you wanted to, I think. Or just find a summer job and have some fun before starting school in the fall. I hope my parents keep their house, but I don't know if you could work enough to earn it from them. It's worth a lot of money. You could buy it form them when you are a doctor, but don't you have to travel where ever they send you for 12 years after school? Do you want to live in Provo after you get out of the Army? I have even thought about moving up there to take care of them, but haven't really discussed it with them or anyone yet. So, are you still going to marry the first girl you see when you get off the plane? If so, I am going to sell tickets to your arrival and do thorough interviews of those wanting to hopefully catch your eye! JK So what town or city are you on now. You said you were transferred again and I didn't even know the place you were at for a short time. I don't think there was ever a sequel to the Series of Unfortunate Events movie, but you did make me curious about what unfortunate events might have occurred in Mongolia. In our neighborhood we had a unfortunate event on Thursday, where a 4 year fell out of a 2 story window 2 house away from your dad's house. I think he was okay because he was screaming, but they took him out by helicopter, so we had a helicopter land at Provinces Park. Another good thing about being in Mongolia for an extra few weeks, is that you will be safe from the dangerous roads in Chandler for a little longer- Joseph got his Drivers license yesterday. He is pretty proud of the accomplishment, but he does not have any wheels he can drive to school on a regular basis yet. I am not letting him take the truck. Maybe he can get a job and save up some money to buy his own car and insurance. Today's meetings were good. It was ward conference and we had the stake president, his councilor and the bishop speak in sacrament. The choir sang and i was told we sounded really good. Joseph, Cali and I all sang in it. I think I have a musical number for you and your friends to sing when you get home. Maybe not for your homecoming, but it is a male voices group of Called to Serve. Have you done much singing in Mongolia? I know you said your last companion( 2 companions ago?) was a good singer. Cali is taking voice lessons now and is counting on being famous. She's already written a few songs. Hope you have a great week! Love and prayers are on their way daily. Keep the fire burning! Love always, Mom Athena
I remember people saying if you were bad they would send you to Outer Mongolia. In this case it's different, because James is good he's going on a mission to Mongolia.
