February 1, 2010

Howdy Hey Hey,

Okay, so just to start this off, let's just say, what a crazy week. I can say it has been one of the weirdest weeks of the mission. Let's see what happened.

Well on top of the normal crazy like trio things, well first on a good note we got a super sweet new investigator this week, her name is Norma, she is a member ref and I would be willing to bet she is going to be baptized in the next few weeks. She is so amazing and so ready. We got things going better with Otto and Steffy's Mom, we are having the Sister missionaries helping with her. She seems to like them, we will see how it goes. So we had a pretty good week as far as missionary work goes.

Okay, first off, we moved. It took a long time, becaseu well we had to leave the old pad completely empty you know, so there wasn't much missionary work going on, we just moved.

Okay side note on the moving thing. Part of the moving we had to put some stuff into storage, and well, our storage is in Manhattan. So I got to go to Manhattan last week. It was pretty cool. The storage is i na church, and the church was really pretty. But yeah, so I drove over the Queens Boro Bridge, drove past the Metro Museum of Art, and stuff like that. Not too much though, because it was mostly go and come back. But it was fun.

Ok, our new pad, it is horrible. There is room for maybe 2 people to live in there, and, well, there are 5 of us. So it is very cramped. And this is what tops it off, we found out that we are moving again this week probably, that this is just putting us here temperarily, so on top of no room, we are leaving out of our suitcases, so that is fun. We also have what has become known as our "superbed" because there is not enough floor space for much, so all of our mattresses are like right next to each other, because we don't have out bedframes, because we aren't goign to move them in, just to move them out. So the whole moving thing is still in works, and it is not very fun.

Ok, so for the last of the crazy stories, on Sunday we were studying in our pad, and we don't have desks because of the moving situation, but Elder Call was sitting in a like computer chair with wheels, and he was leaning on it, and then he shifted his weight, and the wheels popped out from underneath him, and he fell backwards and hit his head on the corner of a wall. Well, long story short, he starts bleading everywhere, like a lot, and we clean in up, wrap his head, call the office elders, they come and get us, we go to the emergency room, and they do there stuff, and now Elder Call has 4 staples int he back of his head. And then on top of that, we went to church a couple hours later. Crazy, huh? He is goign to be fine, we just have to go back in like 10 days and have them taken out. Same situation as when I had mine. HIs cut was like really deep though. It was carzy, I didn't 'think it was too deap, but hten they cleaned it out before stapling it, and it surprised me.

Ok, so last thing. We have this excommunicated member that we have been asked to work with, and we have been for a long time, and I have grown really close to him, he is from Guatemala, anyways, he found out yesterday that he is all ready to go, get baptized whenever he watns. I am so excited. he is just going to find out when his wife can fly out and he will get batpized. I am stoked.

So that is my crazy life.

Well I think that is it, and I better get going. I love you all so much.
