So I am not sure how exactly to tell you this, but here I go... So this past week on Friday, Elder Zimmerman and I were walking down the road and a guy bolted out in front of us and grabbed Elder Zimmerman. We are pretty sure that his motive was to rob us, but without even thinking, I swung and punched the guy in the face. He let go of Elder Zimmerman and took off and we were both okay. But here is the big news. Because of legal complexities and past experiences the mission has had, there is a zero hitting policy for us missionaries. Even in times of self defence. Because I hit the guy, even in self defence, I am being sent home. Please read the attached file before you all freak out. I will talk to you soon and see you soon.
I love you all!
The attached file was this:
Hopefully you all didn’t freak out or start crying.
I love you all and hope you can forgive me!
Mike responded stating that it was April 3rd not April 1st. Bryce said that he couldn't email on the 1st so he did it in his email today. He sent his sister, Shaelyn and brother in law, Colten ass well as his sister Nicole in a state of panic. Mike and I kind of wondered if it was a joke. So grateful it was.
