Eden and the Volcano ! Week #36
And before I continue on any further.... I GOT MY CHRISTMAS PACKAGE!!!
So, thank you thank you thank you oh so very much indeed! It was greatly appreciated, and I pretty much exploded when I saw what was inside, so I drew plenty, built some Legos, and fused the T-shirt to myself! It was great... to bad I was changed from Elder Housley, he was the only one in the mission I knew that appreciated Legos. *sigh!*
Ok, next off.... Congrats to Madison for her play! Good luck indeed! The BYU game and Hunger Games movie (I gotta see it...) all looked great! And I sure will miss Alberto and Margarita, good luck to them in thier trip also!
And ok, now for our week: we had a normal week, but with many, MANY things inserted! We had divisions on Tuesday-Wednesday, a special training meeting Friday with the president and his wife, (which, By the way, sister Ghent gave me a copy of Mom and Her in Women´s conference, I shall be sure to try to send a copy!") and on Saturday we did service in the sector of the Sister´s, clearing out weeds and shrubbery in a Jungle! Well, it´s more like a half-junglish area, but enough that their backyard has frogs, bamboo, and big colorful spiders! We were sure to avoid those...
So, a very busy week, and unfortunately with that many activities (a few more), our numbers this week were rather poor, like an old wayfaring man of grief. (almost a pun :) )
And as for our investigators, only one attended church with us: Fabian! And he´s to be baptized this weekend, between sessions of conference! Yes! All of the missionaries in our zone are going to have this Saturday´s baptisms in the same chapel for conference, so it shall be a ´Noche Blanca´ (which means, white night, because of all the baptismal clothing.´
So, with my companion and I, things are just going right now. Yes, our first week was quite rough, and then it started to improve mightily! But now... I fear it is deteriorating again. Sigh... So, I shall continue on, and hope that things start to get going smoothly. *pity me!*
But, I shall be sure to stay in contact, and I pray for you all every day and night! Stay strong, do your scripture study, and go to church!
OH! And to end with a quote- ´Too often we pray to have patience, but we want it right now!´ - (I forgot who, but it´s from one of the Apostles, sorry!)
One is of us after doing service, me and 2 other missionaries in the Sister´s sector, a great pic of the volcano from my room, and me celebrating Christmas on March 21st.
Happy General Conference!
