I sleep great with the new pillow. Yeah the water is pretty nasty and it isn't fun, we just get soaked and covered in nasty who knows water. However luckly we don't get to many crazy storms like that too often. So we had transfers, next transfer is my birthday. I'm staying here to finishing the training of my kid, and then I'm pretty sure I will be going to my last area. It's been nice and sunny as well as super hot!!!!
My week was good was a normal week ( first time in a while ) We are in the process of finding new people. We've doing a lot of service lately which had been nice, cut and cleaned up a lawn/property and yestarday we cleaned the church.
Studied 2 nefi 25 and 26, Mosiah 28, and lots of DyC
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM!!!
Love you soooo much, I hope you had a great day.
sorry that I didn't write yestarday, we had to travel to rio 4 for the zone meeting and zone pday.
Yeah it's been pretty dang hot here but I'm loving the sun. My week has been good, but I'm really tired. We are working hard and we have been super busy and have had lots of traveling and stuff going on. The elder my district is traing a guy from arizona now. We have a really young mission now.
The christmas markets sound really cool and intresting. Thats awesome, I would love to talk to them. How everything at home and in the ward?
Wow 12 days!! time is flying
Love you and miss you.
Can't wait to talk to you and the family
t's very true the mission is always changing, but it is something very unique and special. Rio IV is about 3 hours from where we are.
We don't have much planned for Christmas, pretty sure we will eat with a member and do our skype call. I'm thinking around 1ish here or 5ish there.
My week was really good, We had zone pday and zone meeting. And then we found a lot of new people to teach using the area book- finding and teaching with old investagadores from many years ago.
The best part of the week was making banana bread yestarday, spending time with some of the elders in Rio 4, and finding alot more people to teach.
Love and miss you guys! Wish i could be with the family for christmas, gained such a appreciation for family holidays now.
