30 July 2012
othing too exciting this week, lets see:
wednesday we had interviews with prez black. we do them about every three months, just to check in. and with transfers coming up next week, prez was dropping all sorts of hints to people about transfers. so we spent the rest of the week speculating about who is going where, and who is training, stuff like that. there were 24 new missionaries last transfer, 28 new ones this transfer, and will be 20 something the transfer after that. which is CRAZY because less than 20 will be going home in the next 3 transfers combined. we think that literally everyone that is not a zone leader will be training. we also speculate that a zone will split in half turning into 2 zones. there is some crazy stuff going down and nobody is quite sure what is going to happen. i am 90% sure that i will stay here and finish training elder parker and then get sent somewhere else in about a month and a half. we'll see.
this week was kinda slow work wise. at least there wasnt the leaps and bounds of progress we have made in the past few weeks. i think as a whole, the mission is getting more excited about the work. and that, i think, will continue to happen as we get all this new blood in the mission. im excited to see the changes!
im also excited for winter. but thats still a little bit away.
i havnt seen any of the olympics, which is a huge bummer, i love the olympics! USA USA USA USA USA
for our pday activity we have challenged another zone to an olympic competition, it should be pretty fun!
elder parker and i are still getting along great! im a little worried that im going to become district leader next transfer and my district is going to be really lame. i'll probably be the oldest on (mission wise) by about 6 months. should be interesting!
still really hot here. and ugly and brown. thats ok though, its growing on me :)
9 days till my birthday!
18 days till my year mark!
we've got our first friday social this week, hopefully it goes well! im a little worried its going to be a flop. i dont like throwing parties. i like just attending a lot better!
anyways, thats all i have this week. election buzz is picking back up again. should be interesting how it affects the work.
love you all,
elder donovan :)
