Hi mom
Well this week has been interesting.
Tuesday, I had the worst migraine I have ever had. I was in bed all day, I couldn't be up for more than 5 minutes without throwing up!! It was bad and my comp has the flu. So it was a boring day.
Wednesday, my comp was sick again and I had recovered so I had a nice day thinking about the last year and things I want to do different here for the next year. I also studied a butt load but nothing exciting.
Thursday, my comp is still sick, so we ended up going to the dr and well he has broncitis, can't spell it. Yeah but we went and bought his meds and went to an appointment, cause we hadn't worked the entire week and well i had a nice argument with a member. Well basically I cut her head off for telling us to give he daughter an exorsism. I was justified to do it, but i did feel bad and asked for forgiveness the next day. She also said sorry. It was a heated moment. But I gave 2 of her daughters blessings and well the spirit was super strong and probably my two best blessings I have ever given, so god couldn't have been to upset with me. and well I completed a year. Couldn't even believe it!!!!!!!!!!!!
Friday, we had part of the zone in our area helping us find new people, and we had service, with the same family from the night before. My comp was still sick so I had service better said, I got to tear up a wood floor cause they have to change the sewage pipes cause they are just old. So that was fun. It has been awhile since I actually got to tear something up. And yeah, it was a good time. This family is the Tafur family by the way.
Saturday, we had service there again and my comp has to take it easy anyway. So well it wasn't a very productive week this week. We also helped a member move around the block, and well had dad showed up in the half way point and saw the dolly we were using, he would have died. Lets just say had I used it at home, I would have been in my car headed to home dept. for a new one with a sore butt. haha it was from the bishop and well the bearings on the steel wheels were shot so it just wobbled like a son of a gun. It was funny but here it is normal and well not many dollies to spare.
Sunday well, forgot to fast, but paid my offering, it has been like that for a while. But well things just slip by quickly. Didnt do a whole lot, cause my companion is milking his sickness for all it is worth and today in the house i just washed my clothes and what not. cleaned up. Caulked the shower, I would have made dad proud, I did a good job. And well I forgot to mention that I wash by hand now during the week, so it is pretty nice. But jeans by hand is HARD, but I managed and I have clean clothes always. I started doing it like 5 months ago I don't know if i told you or not, but well it is just easier that way. and yeah. I cant believe I am on the down hill but well it feels nice. It is kinda like senior year, like wow this really might end I better take more advantage of these things now. But i love it.
I did have one struggle this week. The fam. Tafur, well they have not a whole lot, but the oldest daughter Erica is the best church member I know. It is pretty cool I have found a family in every ward that well I just love, and this ward it is their family. But it is super super hard for me cause well for heaven sakes it rains and water comes in their house cause the roof well, is a piece of mierda, (don't look that up, it is crap but spelled with an S at the front) sorry, but it is true, and I want to just go buy them new roof plates, thats what they use here and fix the whole thing, but well at the same time that isn't my calling to do. So my companion and I are going to do a bunch of service there this week and fix some things up, cause they just don't have the time or the money. so yeah. It has been super hard for me to see somethings like that, cause i was always so fortunate to have just about whatever I wanted, and if you didn't give it to me I had the opportunity to do the work and buy it. I am trying to decide what god wants me to learn from this, and i think it is be generous when I get older, and well I have wonderful parents that have given me a perfect example. I love you all so much, I testify we have the great blessing to have the gospel in our lives. and that it is true. have a great week and I thank you all for the emails and love and support. and mom tell Renae kidd, that well I don't know how to write dan back cause I don't know how to send letters out of here. so can you ask for his email cause he can't email me but I can him to at least reply to him. Thanks love you all
love nathan
