Feb. 25, 2013

My week wasn´t exciting last week, and I didn´t have a lot of time to write. This week hasn´t been all that exciting either. We had zone conference this week, and my companion and I brought investigators to the temple twice this week. There were supposed to be buses from the stake center, but both times that we went, there weren´t buses so we had to pay for taxis, it was pretty expensive, but I´ll get it reimbursed by the mission later. Saturday it was super crowded at the temple, the line was huge, there were like 50 buses that arrived that morning for field trips from high school aged students. So we stood in line to go through the temple for over an hour, and my face got sunburnt just from standing in line outside of the temple waiting. Not much else has happened. We only have one week left for people to come to the open house, so we´re going to be inviting and going with more people to the temple before it closes.
That´s all that´s happened.

Elder Ward,

How do you like your companion?

Do high school kids go to school on Saturday?

Have you eaten any interesting foods lately?

How was church?  How is it different from our church?

Are you happy?  Do you like being a missionary?

Are bad things happening, so that is why you don't say much?

I love you!  I want to hear more!


My new companion is good. It is hard to be senior companion, but I am learning a lot from having to take charge, and make sure that we are following all of the rules and being effective in our work.
I don´t know why the school buses came on saturday, it was weird to me too. Maybe only their field trips are on Saturdays.
I haven´t eaten weird foods lately, we almost always eat in the house, 3 meals a day, 7 days a week. This week we ate lunch with a member-rice with vegetables and chicken stirred in, and we also had 2 members give us dinner on saturday, so we had double dinner that day. We also got fed lunch for the zone conference. Other than that, we always ate at home every day, but that´s okay, I like cup of soups.
Church is... Idk, its church. It´s different, but basically the same. I don´t know how to describe it very well.
Yeah, I´m happy, I´m tired right now. I spent all morning scrubbing laundry, so I´m not jumping up and down bubbly, and there really isn´t all that much new happening to write about.
No, bad things aren´t happening. Things are good, my companion and I are working hard, and the days/weeks are flying by. But things are good.
