Plenty of Rain


So we started off with a good Monday, a normal P-day not to much happened.

Tuesday We had our Zone Meeting, nothing to crazy happened here. The mission life is not as crazy as it seems.Well when you get to those things you do every week. But none the less it was fun and I enjoy seeing people and talking with them.

Wednesday we had interview with the President! And those were a lot of fun! I haven't seen him for a bit so we did a bit of chatting, I got to explain my tech process during theater to him and we also talked a bit about what I want to do after the mission. It was very nice just talking to some one in English after all this time. We were also given glass bottled Gatorade...which has now been my go to cup around the house..I have never felt healthier drinking coke out of a Gatorade bottle...


Rain...A whole lot of rain..A ton of rain..Street Flooding amounts of rain...and with rain comes the fact that no one wants to talk to us or wants to do anything with us so yeah...It was a pretty depressing.

Valentines day....So this valentines day was TO-DATE my worst day of the year so far. And in all honesty had nothing to do with the fact that it was Valentines day..Haha, and it wasn't like I broke my foot or something. It was more just a bunch of little things. Haha lunch canceled, and so did our dinner. I got a very nice ketchup stain on my tie followed by a very nice glob of cheese.  I guess it wasn't that bad cause I am now forgetting what else happened.

Journal Wise i think i am up to about 5...seperate..journals haha... I have one for my day to day/personal spiritual experiences..One in where i just write stories.. and a few other ones.. I have already finished writing in two of them so ill probabaly be sending a package home at some point in my mission with journals..haha

Cat Fish Stew-


So Monday was nice, got to write a bit and what not and then that night had a Family home evening we were invited to with the Familia Median, We talked about something, and then we went around and talked about characteristics that we could see in other people. We each drew a name and got a chance to talk about them. I drew the mothers name and was able to talk about the amount of charity she has and shows very frequently. I then talked about the characteristic of making and keeping friends that i saw in the two boys that were there. I talked about how it seems to be common practice to have a friend for a year and then never talk to again and tend to avoid when in my mind the title friend is a permanent thing and you talk to them off and on. But never just a straight cold turkey type thing.

Then after we finished we had a wonderful Catfish soup..in which i was served the head. It was okay, it was a bit difficult to find some meat on the head.. Especially after the jaw fell off and it just seemed to fall apart..While eating the soup though i did manage to find a eyeball..It was located when it was in my mouth..Didn't complain about the food until the next day when the Diarrhea hit..Life is good.

So some quick just little bits that aren't well big enough to be their own paragraph haha. I found skittle!! My Pajamas are board shorts and a t shirt now..like beach ready every night haha. Talked a ton at the last District reunion, and to add to that i actually conducted the meeting haha. Also at the Wednesday night activities there were some boys just watching the church boys play soccer, so I strongly insisted that they invite them to come play. And it worked haha. I just hope that they come back next week.

With love
