27 August 2012

Mele Kalikimaka!

Thanks for all of your beautiful letters and words of encouragement! I appreciate all of them!

So this week we had zone conference up in Augusta, Maine and it was pretty good. It was another chance to see President so that's always a great experience.

This was also Elder Morgan's last week in the NHMM, he left for Argentina yesterday and is probably up in a plane somewhere right now. He was a great missionary and we got along really well. He's definitely going to tear it up over in Argentina, I can't wait to hear how it goes once he gets home. So in preparation for his departure we did some fun stuff like going to the chinese buffet, playing some bball, taking funny pictures, and other stuff.

We are now in a trio so Elder Rodriguez is my comp once again! We expect that we will get a new companion next week (this is the last week of the transfer) so we are making guesses as to who it will be. I think it will be a native speaker which would be sweet except that if he is with Elder Rodriguez then they are going to get all of the love and we won't get any cuz we're gringos. So we are having fun making predictions.

I think I told you that our district is named the swag house district so to live up to the name our apartment bought a bunch of du rags and took some pictures with them. This is one of the pics that we took with our guns and du rags. The other pictures are us at transfer meeting with Elder Adams, who goes home in a week, and me with a swollen eye. I think I got allergies or something cuz my eye swelled up for a couple of days. It was super weird but it's back to normal now so tell Mal not to freak out.

This week we had an awesome lesson with the De Jesus family. We invited the wife to be baptized and she accepted and began to cry. She told us that she had received an answer to her prayers. It was an awesome experience. Unfortunately her husband said no when we invited him so that was a bummer. But he's awesome so he'll get there sometime soon! So please pray for them, they're so close! They just struggle with coming to church so once they overcome that they will go far!

So this week we were walking down the street on the way to our ward mission leaders house when these two little girls ran up to us. They were about 3 or 4 and they started asking us questions about why we were dressed up and who we were. Then they started grabbing our ties and yanking them down, so we decided to leave and started walking away. Then I turned around and said goodbye to them. In return the little girls said goodbye back but in explicit language! We totally got cussed out by some 3 year old girls! It was so funny but we couldn't laugh about it until we got farther away cuz we didn't want them to think it was ok to cuss out missionaries. So that was the highlight of my week haha.

I gotta go!

Love you!
