5 November 2012
not a lot happened this week it seems. wednesday was really fun so i'll tell you about that. in the morning we had our monthly meeting with all the zone leaders to talk about whats going on in the mission. it was ok. nothing special, but not the usual ridiculousness that sometimes happens in planning meetings. but after that we had a zone leader tie trade. it was legit. im talking 18 missionaries with probably around1200 ties. it was chaos! President Black didnt understand what he was saying yes to when he gave us permission to do it lol. then after that the WHOLE mission got together for a dinner and talent show. it was super cool. that was the first time in at least the past 3 years that the whole mission has been together in the same place at the same time. there were a lot of good talents too. the usual singing/guitar or singing/piano but also juggling, yo-yo, funny skits, some trash can drumming. it was a lot of fun.
and then the next day president black came over to our place and did our weekly planning with us (we do weekly planning once a week, usually for a couple hours, just planning for the next week and setting goals/talking about things we need to work on) it was cool to have president over for a couple hours, just to bounce ideas off of him, get to know him a little bit outside of a meeting atmosphere.
we're still working on finding people to teach. hopefully it happens soon. im about to start teaching the pigeons on the sidewalk, maybe they'll listen. :)
our turkey bowl uniforms are tight! i'll send a pic when we have the finished product done.
