Hey guys! Happy Birthday the other day Mom. I love you and miss you!!!
There has been a lot that has happened this week but it's all just the same thing. Every day is just a bunch of classes. Last night was a crazy night though. One of the kids... not in our District but in our Zone went a little crazy. So Elder C. is this really cool kid from .... who really wanted to go to the temple this morning. My District and his District were going together. But his companion Elder .... was saying he was sick but he really just wanted to sleep in. So every one in the two Districts were trying to get him to quit being dumb, cause we are on a mission and this is what we are here to do. The Zone leaders were telling him he had to go because he can't just stay in the room by himself. But the kid is so stubborn he just kept complaining and then he totally freaked out and had like a rage. He is just a short kid like shorter then me but he is huge. His companion is way bigger he was a big football player. Anyways the Elder pulled out his brass knuckles and a knife and set them on the table in front of him. He never said anything about using them or never threatened anyone he just pulled them out. He did want to fight everyone. This went on until 1 am because no one wanted to call the security because they did not want to get him in trouble for having them. They were just trying to convince him to send them home but he wouldn't. Finally Elder ..... had enough because he just kept getting on these rages and so he called the security and they sent this little guy and HE SIDED WITH ELDER .... AND LET HIM KEEP THEM BECAUSE HE NEVER MADE A THREAT WITH THEM.
So ya.... that's how my night went. All because he did not want to wake up early to go to the temple.
Yes. I have seen Olivia. She seems to be doing good.
I leave next Tuesday at 6:20 am. So I don't know when I will be able to email you next. I don't know when my P-day will be out there yet. I am excited to go to Washington.
Use dearelder.co to write me anything you hear about (Bishop) (Brandon) Because I get those everyday. We can't check our email everyday anymore. They told us we could and then they said we could not because some people were just staying on them to long.
I am glad you told me about Bishop. I would want to know. But that is so sad!!!! Like it's unreal. It just makes me so sick. I love Brandon. I always wondered what I would do if something happened like this while I was gone serving my mission.
Ethan's Bishop, good friend and co-worker Bishop Brandon Jones was killed in a bicycle accident
2 weeks after Ethan entered the MTC. Bishop Jones sent Elder Ethan Stucki this email
the night before his accident.
What a blessing for Elder Stucki.

So it has taken me so long to reach out to you. Hope everything is going well and you are enjoying your time in the MTC. If you send out a group email to everyone, will you please add me to your list? I would love to hear about all your experiences and know how you are doing.
It is crazy that your family will be building in Cobblestone again but I am so happy they are. Too bad they had to go through all that they did with the moves. I love your family so I'm glad they will be sticking around! They finally started on the Stake Center across the street so that will be great to have a building so close to us!
I hope and pray that everything is going well for you, sure miss you but know you are where you need to be right now. Take care and please keep in touch, you're a great young man and will be such a blessing to those you will teach in Washington. Let me know if there is anything I can ever do for you. Take care Elder and know that we love and support you!
Love you all!
Elder Ethan Stucki
