Heat exhaustion July 18, 2016
Don't worry mom the only reason I put this as the title is because it is hot and I am exhausted. WHAT ELSE IS NEW. Actually not a lot to be honest, just walking around talking to people who are playing Pokemon. But it's exciting, I feel like things are starting to pick up in this area. It's annoying that it takes me a whole transfer to get the ball rolling, but at least it's rolling now so who cares. We had three dinner appointments last week which was a miracle and it was awesome and we were able to eat and talk with them and they told us about some of their friends who weren't members that they want us to start teaching so that's really exciting!! The only problem is that they are out of not only our area, but our MISSION. We are serving right now in the very corner of our entire mission, and since we are YSA missionaries we don't just cover one Ward, we cover two stakes. Which is huge. But one of the stakes isn't even in our mission! So we haven't been able to get up there to talk to anyone, including some people who have presidency callings who have been MIA the entire summer. We have been trying to get approval from an area 70 since way before I've been here but nothing has really happened yet. BUT MAYBE SOON. We never know. Just pray. Anyways I'm sorry this letter is pretty short. Honestly not a lot has happened this week. But I am grateful to be able to be a missionary and I'll give a lil s/o to my brother TREVOR who leaves on his mission this week! Have fun in Cali bruh. Crazy times, I'll see you in like..2 1/2 years? Ok wow weird lets not think about it 😬 you'll be great bro haha just don't fall asleep during class at the mtc and you will be fine. Probably. Alright what else has happened.. Sister Ensign and I have been searching everywhere for cheap roller skates for when we work out in the morning but we can't find any. We went to like three Goodwill's today and no success. The search continues. Also I love Goodwill. Uhh Adolfo called us this week and asked us for advice with his girlfriend so we started teaching him about prayer lol then he asked if he could come visit us after our missions and take us and we said no. So he persisted. And so we asked him which one of us he was talking about AND HE CAN'T EVEN REMEMBER OUR NAMES. Oh well. Alright I am sorry, my brain is fried I can't type anymore. Maybe I do have heat exhaustion.. Next week will be a better email I promise.
