9 April 2012
hey everybody :)
had a hectic week here! spent a lot of it trying to get all moved in to our new place and organized. mostly we are done with that. the rest of it was spent trying to introduce elder christensen to the area and the people. unfortunately it was spring break here and most of our week was spent trying to contact people that weren't home. just one of those weeks. but this one's looking good! we are going to start teaching a few new people so thats pretty exciting!
also exciting, and kinda confusing: i received a call this week from another missionary who told me that Sylbi had moved back into my ward. since then ive called her probably 15 times, texted her, and knocked on her door a few times. nothing. but she talked to someone else in the ward. weird. i'll keep trying to get ahold of her and figure out whats up.
easter was way good here! sister ringer had us over for dinner and then afterwards we watched all of the new easter videos from www.lds.org/bible-videos they are really really really good. check them out
it's getting hot here. pray for cool weather for me :)
i ate a "1000 year old egg" this week. it was really pretty gross. what it is is a raw egg that basically gets covered in clay and ferments for a few days. when its done and you crack it open, the insides are solid and black. yum
we have started running in the morning. at the end of the month we are going to run a 5k. stay tuned for that :)
im going to start pushing to finish the book of mormon. i feel like i have been reading it for a long time. and i'm pretty sure if i push to finish it as fast as i can (while still marking it up well) it'll really help me. so stay tuned for that as well i guess.
other than that, nothing much is happening here. the mission split is getting closer so the excitement is growing for that. elder marks, my mission dad is the new AP, so he keeps joking that he wants a grandson and so he's going to make sure im training soon. i dont think that show it works though. we'll see what happens.
i think my bike is about to die....
but life is good here :) im glad i get to be a missionary. its an awesome experience to be able to only worry about the things that Heavenly Father wants me to worry about :)
i hope you all had a wonderful easter and have a wonderful week this week :)
