So here we are, my 7th change (of 9) in the same zone. Hooray! I`m not complaining. I wanted to stay. I`m really hoping that at least *somebody* gets baptized this change, but unfortunately there are too many variables. It`s tiring work being worried for so many people at the same time. I really don`t care for myself...I came out to serve and love, but I would like my comp to have his first baptism soon, hopefully with me as his trainer. We`re praying and working to try and have at least one but I really don`t know what else we can do. Anyways, in happier news, we had 7 in church yesterday, including one for her first time. Good news. She is the (soon to be legal) daughter-in-law of a less active family which we are reactivating at the same time.
Ok, so I got letter 55 last week. Also I got a letter from Kyle (finally).
Funny story of the week...there is a bug here called the rhino beetle that is pretty common and not dangerous. It is a beetle with a horn on the front. So recently we have taken a liking to them and we pick them up and carry them with us. Well one day, my comp let one walk all over his shirt. And Mr. Rhino beetle thanked him by taking a fatty dump on his collar. My comp had 4 huge brown spots on his collar. Never have I wanted a camera so badly in my entire life. :D
PS...that was a joke last week about the G2 Pens. I was messing around. I knew they were from the brothers. Sorry you took me seriously. :P
Yeah, so life is good,.
Congrats to BYU basketball, which is rocking the casbah. Makes up for the fail of a football season they had.
Oh and postcards don`t really exist here...at least not anywhere close to where I live. So sadly, I`ll not be able to help Owen. Apologies.
So I`ve recently become a huge fan of conference issues of the Ensign. I had 4 in my possession and then I found 3 more in the house and I`ve been reading them like a madman. My most basic conclusion is that the apostles are awesome. My comp laughs at me because I`ll read an article (by Elder Ballard for example) and then I`ll turn to him and say, "Well, Elder Ballard is awesome". Well it`s true. They are truly awesome through and through. We have the October 2004 conference issue in the house and I got to read President Hinckley`s talk about pornography. Good stuff. That man was a boss too. So yeah, basically modern revelation is the shiz. What would we do without it.
Um, so yeah, my comp and I are doing great. Hope you guys have a good week. Thanks for the love and prayers. We`ll keep working like bosses out here, rocking the shiz. Word. Stay safe and don`t do drugs.
