So this week has really good. Life seems to be moving along.
Today marks the beginning of the 6th week of the transfer which
absolutely blows my mind. It's already the end of march and hump day
is on the horizon baby.
So first thing, Elder Baures and I had a near death experience and it
was crazy. So let me set the scene. We had just got dinner with a
member over at a place called Ding How, (which is a really good
Mongolian Buffet.) We were headed back to our area and we were on the
Glenn Highway and was going about 75 miles an hour. All of the sudden
a car came ripping past us at about 90 mph and lost control trying to
merge lanes and came within inches of clipping the front of the truck.
I hit the brakes and this car was completely sideways on the freeway
and ended up rolling into the shoulder and it was crazy. We pulled
over to check on the guy and I was thinking this guy was going to be
dead. So while Elder Baures called the police I got out and checked on
the guy and he was out of his car before I was even out of the truck.
He was good though. He was wearing seatbelt and that saved his life no
doubt about it. We waited til the cops got there and they took our
info and then we went back to work. So that was my crazy story of the
As far as the work goes Elder Baures and I have been doing lots of work
finding people. We are trying to find new people to teach because we gave
most everybody that we were working with up when the ward split We
have had some cool experiences and met some super sweet people.
For example the other night we rolled up to an apartment complex
thing and all the neighbors were outside having a sic BBQ. They asked
us if we were hungry so of course we joined them. We ate fried chicken
and soda and they even gave us this cake thing to take home. We also
got a return appointment with a lady named marcea so hopefully that
will go well. It was cool just to feel accepted and loved even though
they didn't even know me at all. I hope I make people feel like that
when I meet them.
Something we did for fun is on Monday we had dinner over at Samoan
family and they brought out the karaoke machine and they wanted me to
sing. So I picked up the mic and we had a blast. They took a video so
don't make fun of my horrible tone deaf voice haha also the pic I am sending
is our post game bowling last p day it was a ton of fun as well.
All day Tuesday and Wednesday we basically had mass of lessons with
the Russian Jack Elders and gave them all of our work so they should
be pretty busy for a while... Thursday I was on exchanges with my
district Leader and we had a lot of fun. We went to the kids kitchen
and made breakfast for dinner for the kids and I was in charge of
making the pancakes. By the end of the night they were calling me the
Pancake King 👑 haha kind of dumb but made me feel good.
I Wanted to wish my brother Jordan a Happy Birthday yesterday and
let him know that I hope that he had a really good day... well anyway, yea;
so the days here are getting super long with the sunlight and I love every bit of it. It
doesn't get completely dark until about 9:15 ish and I love every bit
of it... I absolutely love the sun and am so glad that it's back 👌
Anyway that was my week and it was good anyway I love you all have a great week
Keep the faith
