Today was not P-day because of transfers so we had towork away and we had a ton of Lessons set up ! Elder D. and I were exhausted by the end of the day. We taught a seventh day Adventist pastor who has been doing it for 30 years ! that was fun ! ALSO GOT transfer calls..... Off to serve in Lao/meinh languages covering half the mission ! also covering Elk Grove park English ward.. thatll be fun !
P-day filled with packing and goodbyes :( always hard!
Bro T. came to pick me up and take me to south sac ! so awesome I miss that guy ! so yup got into the area and got settled and off we went to start working. I had my first Lao meal. they eat with their hands. you take sticky rice and make like a little spoon with it and eat some super spicy stuff with it! we also called president and he told me to start learning Lao !
District Meetings ! we had a crazy district meeting. Elder P. started it off by giving a letter to us from the first presidency that said that they no longer were going to call young missionaries for missions and was going to be on volunteer base only . and we would be interviewed for continued service. The letter was FAKE but it was to get a point across as we all were given a lesson by the spirit that a mission does not lastthat long. you have got to make the best of it because it will not last forever and time flies.
Weekly planning... took forever !!
Still trying to learn the Language! Just all around busy day and I, running out of time !
We had church for literally almost all day starting at 7:30 and ended at 4 . then we ate dinner and started to get to know the area better. Then we had a zon e activity ! we met on the roof top of a members home and had a zone meeting. it was like a zone testimony meeting and then they brought ballons and told us to write all of our fears down on a sticky not then tie it to a balloon. then we let them go . Cool symbolism and a great way to start the transfer ill try to send a picture of it !
love you sorry for a quick one !
