26 August 2013

Jake's home! I can't believe it's already been two years since I hugged him on his doorstep...

This week was great for us over here. Things are starting to really pick up, we finally had an investigator come to church! She has 5 kids but only brought 4 of them so our headache in finding her a ride was lessened a little bit. She seemed to really enjoy it and we plan on extending a baptismal date to her this week. Oh and her name is Dienna (sounds like Tina but with a "D").

I also went down to Lawrence on exchange which was great, I just love that place. Our zone is still doing awesome, every missionary and every area is contributing to the success which makes us very happy! :D 

This week we moved into our new apartment, yes another new one. Now we live by a couple of members and across the street from a gym, basketball court and our ward mission leader. Our set up is pretty sweet. There are two more weeks left in the transfer so I'm starting to get nervous that I'll be transferred out. Elder Frutos and I play a game where we tell people that each other will be transferred out next transfer. I'm 99.9% certain Elder Frutos will die here (missionary slang that means he will finish his mission and go home) which means I will either stay for 2 more transfers or leave in 2 weeks. But it's a fun game to play because it makes the members start saying how much they are going to miss us. Honestly, we just do it to get free and instant compliments. 

So Mal you did the FAFSA stuff? Sweet! I hope it all works out, I really wish I could take care of this stuff myself but there really is no convenient way for me to do it. Also, I'm going to need a car so if anyone sees a psychadelic 1969 VW Bus kicking around anywhere, feel free to pick it up for me and I'll pay you back. 

And for those of you who want to know, yes it does feel like I'm going home soon. It's tough because you can't completely act like you aren't going home soon but if you act like you are going home then everyone thinks you're trunky. So I just keep comments about home to myself and work as hard as I can. I believe Justin Bieber sings a song about making memories, that's pretty much my mentality when it comes to the remaining 4 months. 

I hope you all have a great week, say hi to Thomas and Leif for me! I miss all of you but I'll see you all soon!

Love, Elder Resendez
