April 29, 2013

So most of the emails posted probably don't make a whole lot of sense because a lot of what Elder Robinson says is answering questions we ask him! But here ya go anyway! :) This kid is seriously one of the funniest people I know! We are so proud of him! He is doing so well and seems to be enjoying the work!!! 

So your old now cuz it was your birthday last week! I hope it was sweet :) haha I feel like weeks go by really fast here but not the months ha o well itl be fun :) Seans call was sweet! Elder Davis is really jealous haha he wanted to go foreign so bad. Finals suck tho! thats one thing i dont miss about college. Did bubba qualify for BYU? i guess he did if they are all going up tho? ha o yeah i forgot to tell you but seans mission pres. was at the MTC when i was there it was kinda funny pres. Roache or something like that. As much as it hurts so say this I hope Eric gets into the U that would be pretty cool! where else are you guys looking? Oregons full of  weirdos so idk if i would suggest it ;) jk the members here are actually way cool! No i havent gained any more weight yet we bike a lot and work out every morning and im on this stuff called Chia seed that makes you lose weight so im not chubby anymore:) I think im good on the underwear tho it rains so much here that they get cleaned every time we go out side pretty much thanks for the offer tho! (in my email to him I asked if he needed anything... food, new underwear, anything!? haha) We are teaching like 3 or 4 people there really funny and some of them are kinda crazy but they seem to be taking it pretty well! If they would just read the Book of Mormon they would pull there heads out and be baptized life would be a lot easier! ;) Good luck with Finals and what not hope everything is going well! miss and love you guys!

April 22, 2013 (5..almost 6 weeks since he's left)

I'm still a little in shock that Bubba and the twins are actors! who knew right? haha it made me laugh really hard that they won too! thats awesome tell them to keep up the good work! You'll have to tell Meg happy birthday for me! We have a member who gives us Mtn. Dew everytime we go over there and it reminds me of when we would go to grandpa D's when i was younger and always bring them! We are teaching a few investigators but its mostly visiting less actives that takes up most of our days its still fun tho! Its really weird to think that grandma and grandpa guymon are like 15 minutes away! Bro. Gage offered to take me to Portland to see them saturday night it made me laugh! Im glad that school is almost over for you guys tho im sure you will be happy for summer! im just glad it hasnt rained here today:) thanks for all you do! its hard being away from home but its ok it will all work out in the end :) Love you all! 2 Nephi 33:10

Priesthood session one was ridiculous... in a good way though!

Hey! im really great! my week was really good got to find out my watch isnt water proof so that was really exciting:) Conference was freakin sweet huh! Elder Holland is still my favorite but Pres Uchtdorf gave some really good talks too, his priesthood session one was ridiculous  in a good way tho :) I was so pumped to hear about Cedar getting a temple! thats sweet I cant wait to go through it! where are they building it tho? I'm glad the Jazz won! I'm surrounded by freakin Trail Blazer fans its so depressing! its fun to hear when the Jazz beat them tho :) haha I'm glad school is almost over! i sorta miss it sometimes but then i get over it :) Thank you for emailing me! hopefully i have cool stories to share in the next few months!

Hello Robinson family, 
This is Sister Pape from Tigard Oregon, Home of your Missionary son! My son enters the MTC a week from today and is out getting in some practice with the Elders. They just stopped by and had some lunch. I snapped a quick photo so I could let you see that he is alive and well in Oregon. (please ignore the mess, they cought me in the middle of a project) This is the first time I have had a chance to visit with him and I can already tell we are going to really like him. His Trainer is pretty brave to take a greenie and a pre-greenie out tracting. ha ha I like to fix the boys food from home when they come for dinner so feel free to send me recipes of his favorites.  I wiould also love to know when his birthday is in case he is here for his birthday. We will take good care of him! Have a great day.

I forgot to attach the picture from my mom's email when I forwarded it to me! Oops! I'll post it next time!

Week One in Oregon!

Oregon is freaking sweet! the weather here now is really beautiful and its been in the 70's all week! i agree with email its alot better and now i guess we can email anyone we want to not just family members! to answer your questions im not sure about my address its on my facebook account i think. Yes i got a bike the last elder in this district left his so im using that one its working really well but im going to have fullback legs when i get home me and Elder Davis figured out we biked 13 miles yesterday! President Morby is a really cool guy and his wife is really nice too! We have only met them twice so far but everyone says he favors athletes so hopefully im ok then! haha. My P-days are on monday but last week it was tuesday cuz all our schedules were different with the new missionaries showing up but from now on they are going to be on mondays. I got your easter package btw thank you!! it is really good and it was good to get something! The pictures mom got were from sister Gage, her husband AJ and her are really cool people! we are at there house a lot studying because AJ is really smart and we learn alot. They got Elder Davis and I easter baskets and with matching ties too! We spend alot of our time here visiting less actives but we also have a few investagators that we are working on so hopefully we get to dunk a few soon! I hope mom gets feeling better! and mary halterman too! Im glad you all survived Cindy and her kids tho sounds like an entertaining week! Sounds like Bubba played well tell him to keep up the good work! hes still running track tho right? I will send pics next week when i can take some of Oregon too! this week was kind of crazy! thanks for all you guys do and for letting me serve a mission!! love you all and miss you too!!
Love, Elder Robinson

We Love Your Son!!

We just love your son and are so thankful that he has come to our ward!!  We can already tell he is such a hard worker and just carries the spirit with him.  We are a younger couple in the ward without any kiddos yet, so we really like to 'adopt' the missionaries as our "children" and make them feel at home as best as we can.  We also like to prank the new greenie - which we tried, but your son was too smart and figured us out!  We'll have to let him tell you all about it! He was such a good sport about it, and he tells us he wants to get the next transfer Elder in a prank - so he'll probably help us with that! In our opinion, Robinson was sent to the best ward ever!  We are so excited to have him here!  We got them some Easter baskets - we couldn't let the Easter bunny skip out on them!! They spent the afternoon playing with this dollar store toy, it was very entertaining. :)  

One pic is of Robinson, and his comp Davis, and the other one is with our other 'adopted son' who is a YSA in our ward.  Your boy says hello and he loves you!  Happy Easter!

Polly & AJ Gage
