I got what I needed from Sister Perez, Thanks! We're actually
taking the tour next Monday, not today.
The little deposits I'm making
are missionary funds. Since this is my reassignment, I don't have a debit
card like the rest of the missionaries that are supposed to be here.
So my money gets put on my comps debit card. So we go to the bank and
withdraw it and then I put it on my card because I don,t want to use cash
haha. So it all works out the same. I didn't find the Jersey yet, but I'll keep looking, so don't buy any
yet. I'll let you know.
Sweet! Good job Nathan! :) Tell him he can have
like $20. Is that what I said? I cant remember. haha
I'm sure your talk
was good, they always are. It's good that you talked about missionary
work. We try to get the members in our ward pumped up about missionary
work. We challenge them to read Preach My Gospel. There is this one
awesome member, who is super into the work because of PMG. She comes to
appointments with us and is an awesome fellow-shipper. I'm sure Dallin
did a good job too haha. Langley told me that he sounded nervous
haha.But I was way nervous too haha.
So the "chef" that feeds us does it
on purpose I think. We have him for dinner this Wednesday again, so I'm
a little bit scared haha. But I'll prepare myself this time!
starting to lean away from the Visa's being alphabetical too.
I sent my
SD Card via regular mail today. So it should be there soon! :)
So this week has been pretty wild. I went on 3 different exchanges
this week. 2 of them were bike areas haha.. That was, fun I guess. Both
areas were really hilly so that sucked. I was super tired, especially
because it was my first day on a bike. It was good exercise though!
had a lot of Miracles happen this week, like random people calling us
and telling us that they have been looking for an LDS church. One specific family that called us are inactive but want to come back. They
do have 2 children who are unbaptized (14 & 12 years old). They want
to get them baptized but there are problems. The lady is divorced and
her husband is like super anti-Mormon. He doesn't want them baptized.
Since they have joint custody, they both have to give permission... :(
so aka..they cant get baptized probably until they are 18. We are still
going to be teaching them though and re-activating them!
One of our new
investigators this week is like 60 years old and is a professional body
builder and he is also a director for zombie movies haha! It's sweeeet.
While on exchanges the 2nd time, a member took us out to this Brazilian
buffet. Super goood. I was feeling adventurous and tried some things
that I would never have thought I would have eaten! I ate quail eggs,
those were bad. Just a little bit hard. I also ate the core of a palm
tree, nasty. And then... I ate a chicken heart. haha it was NASTY. I
tried my best to swallow it haha. But it was hard. It didn't taste that
bad, but just the thought of me eating a chicken heart was gross. A
couple days later, a member wanted me to try sushi. So i did.. it had
crab in it. yuck. I didn't want to eat it, but I didn't want to offend him
haha. So I did it. It wasn't terrible, but it wasn't good. I'm not a fan.
I'll Pass next time. haha
I know there is more that happened, but I cant
remember right now. Lame. I hate it when that happens. The whole week
is just full of so many awesome epic things! Well I love you guys! I
hope you have a great weeek! :) . When you get my card in the mail, just put the
pictures on my hard drive. Thanks mom! :)
Oh another thing I just remembered that happened this week! On Saturday
we volunteered at a home owners association carnival. It was from
8am-4pm. Man it was sooo hot too. I put on sunscreen, but from the
pictures I sent, you can see that it didn't work haha. I am super fried!
It hurts so much just to move haha. I got burn lines from my glasses
too, so that's awesome. For the carnival, I ran a giant hamster ball
course. It was awesome. I got to try it with another elder at the very
end, it was so sick!! I got a little video of us racing. The lady taking
the video didn't really know how to work the camera.. So its only like 6
seconds long. But still. Those are attached haha! It was soo fun. I'm
still feeling the pain. I'm putting a ton of aloe vera gel on everyday.
Well I think that's it! Bye bye!
