Thank you all so much for the birthday letters and thank you Amanda for the box of candy and the candycane Christmas tree! I love it!
Things are starting to pick up a bit, even the weather. Elder Mitchell and I rode our bikes in the rain today and got SOAKED!! We would have had the car but the other elders are being very rude and wont give it to us even though it's our day to have it. (I will send more details in paper Mom.)
I'll get this out of the way real fast, Elder Mitchell broke his toe while we were playing capture the flag in the church building on Thanksgiving. (we stayed out of the chapel) lol if you want details you will have to ask Elder Mitchell.
Now to this past week. Transfers are now in process and Elder Mitchell and I are staying in Twin Falls as companions!!!!!!!!!! We are both very happy about this even though we dont get along all the time. It's kinda funny because sometimes Elder Mitchell thinks that he is the only normal person on the planet. One example: we were in a meeting and the wall behind us made a noise because of plumming. Normal right? So we all ignored it but Elder Mitchell started laughing at it. Every time it made a noise he would laugh and we would all stare at him. After the meeting he said, "I don't know why you all dont find that funny." lol So basically most the things I do, down to how I eat bread, is weird to him. lol. I look at him a lot and say "I AM NOT AN ANIMAL!!! haha XD
The Trumbull girls baptism was very good. Considering we were almost 20 minutes late and I had to give the first talk! Let me explain, after we had gotten everything ready we didn't want to sit and waste a beautiful hour doing nothing, so we rode our bikes to deliver some papers to the ward mission leaders. In one house they offered to make us pancakes cause it was still in the morning, and since we hadn't had breakfast we accepted. Right as the pancakes were ready we got a call asking us if we were coming to the baptism. The baptism was supposed to be starting right then! Luckily the ward mission leader was able to give us a ride there. As soon as we got there the meeting started and my talk went very well and the two girls were happier then I have ever seen them. (and I've seen them pretty happy before.)
Well thats all I've got this week, here is a video that a member showed us of a little girl telling the story of Jonah and the whale! It is AWESOME!!! Hope you enjoy it.
I love you all, miss you, and pray for you. Stay cool and have fun!!
