Email from 4-21-14 The subject line read: Toodles lost his marbles again

Howdy Grandma From way up north,
Nice to hear from ya'll. My new companion's name is elder Cerdhé. He is half Mexican, but extremely white, and is from Arizona, and spoke no spanish before his mission. He is twenty, and went to college for two years before his mission. He has a degree in graphic design. He wants to learn martial arts from me so it makes a great way to do our exercize in the mornings.

The members are not really helping right now with referrals. And we don't eat dinner, we don't really have time for that. But I make my companion and I breakfast in the mornings. It is usually something like eggs, with Chorizo and garlic, and onion with bell peppers and jalapeños and salt and pepper and mushrooms and other random stuff. 

Well, you will be jealous, but here all people really have to do is plant a seed and leave it alone, and it will grow all by itself. No need for care or fertilizer.

Yesterday we tought some people how to do a family home evening. We had it on their roof. (not really allowed) But we had a fun activity, and I did some card magic tricks that they really liked. Afterwords, we had a testimony meeting under the stars. The investigators were bearing their small but grand testimonies, and we sang Divina Luz (lead Kindly Light) to end. We all knelt down on our knees for the closing prayer. I loved the whole week. Thanks so much for the prayers, and for the letters and e-mails. 

Love you all,
Elder Norris
 He has lost some weight. Don't know if you can see it because the picture is small, but, his pants are cinched in at the waist by his belt. Those were snug when he left in November! I love getting these pictures.  It is so good to see him.
Companion Elder Cerdhé and Alex. Silly boys! You can tell they are doing well.
