So I'm not going to lie, this past week was rough. Don't get me wrong, it was a good week, but some weeks are just stressful, hahah. I started doing exchanges this past week and since I'm supposed to HELP the missionaries in my district, bringing them to my area is mostly ineffective. So I go to their areas and try to show them how to do the one thing I've never done, English work! Hahah, no it actually went well and I was surprised how Spanish missionary work and English missionary work are the same essentially. One cool thing was going to a lesson with Elder Dahl with a member present. The member was actually Jason F. Wright, a New York Times bestselling author, kinda cool. Anyways, all in all the week was a good one and I learned a lot.
So just so you know, I got Insulin and strips this week (I ordered them) thankfully United Healthcare's operation seems a little smoother these days on shipping supplies. I also got pods. I'm not sure I need them quite yet, I have 50 I haven't used (so now I have a 100.) Also sorry Dad, I actually haven't noticed the pattern, missionary work is like a time void. Weeks are months and months are weeks. Oh and we will be getting 4 more Spanish missionaries, not a ton, but thats ok. No we don't have decorations Mom and the only other thing you could send me is more music I guess. Christmas music can be whoever as long as the lyrics aren't romantic and still focus on Christ or Christmas. Also I wouldn't mind a burned CD of George Winston music or similar stuff.
So I don't have a lot of time today sorry, but I have a good story. This week I was driving at about 7:30 at night and I parked so we could knock some potential investigator's doors. I parked and I heard a pop. I knew I didn't hit the curb so we got out and looked at the tire. I had run over a beer bottle hidden in some leaves and big shards of glass were sticking out of the tire! I started laughing cause laughing works a lot better than complaining. We left for a bit and knocked our potential's doors, nothing. So we decided we better change the tire, Elder Ocasio has a pretty bad knee so I was more than happy to change it. The problem is that these Corollas don't come with the cool jack we have at home, you get a flimsy one. I had to raise it up 3 times so that it wouldn't lean and bend! Finally I changed the tire and I put the car back down. It was 8:55 so I looked at Elder Ocasio all excited and said "We can still knock one more door!" Then he looked at me like I was crazy. I realized I had black on my shirt, dirt on my pants and shoes, my tie was in the car and my hands had dirt and some blood from grazed knuckles. I then said you're right and we had to go home. But that's ok, because we found 5 investigators that next day! So I know the Lord knows when we are working hard and He makes up the difference.
I wish I had more time, but no. Anyways, I love you all and I pray for you all. I will pray for you too now Mom, sorry about the veins.
Thanksgiving did its damage, its ok, it's gone now!
Tired but victorious!
My comp made a pie for a family in our ward, ha ha
