Last week I had to mail on Tuesday, because the libraries were closed due to Veterans Day.
Good to hear that you are doing alright. Something that I found out is that a couple
weeks before I came here, one of the apostles came and spoke to the
Portland mission and blessed us with good health. Way cool right?
Sundays are always really loooong. We are at church for about 8-9
hours. Two sacrament meetings with choir in between the two,
coordination meeting in the morning, and every other week we have ward
council before coordination. It's always a really long day, but this
week we had three investigators come to sacrament. super cool. Sometimes
the meetings are kinda boring, actually usually they are just like at
home. They can be interesting when you pay attention though. After the
first sacrament meeting I kinda get tired of just sitting there, but oh
guess I should tell you about the baptism, because it was crazy! We
showed up at the church to set up and we found out that the church got
double booked with another baptism. Such a Fail! We had to sorta splice
the two programs together and the room we did it in wasn't big enough to
hold all the people that showed up. I felt really bad for Linda,
because it was supposed to be her special day. She still cried for most
of the meeting with joy, but still. I had to stand outside the room to
free up some seats for others. I still heard though and the spirit was
super strong. It was awesome because she wanted to be baptized sooo bad
even though she has cancer and is recovering from chemo. Here is a picture.
Also this week we did companionship study with E. Call and E. Wilson
at our apartment. My comp. and I had to leave suddenly and the other
two elders decided to stay at our apartment to finish their studies.
When we came home that night, they had taped a bunch of ties to the
ceiling of our apartment. Also, they took a bunch of random pictures of
them playing around inside while we were gone. It was funny to come back
to. A few days later they came back and cleaned it up luckily. I'll attach pictures.
That's about all that happened. I'm excited for the package. Mail is the best here!
Love you all
