Hey Hey Hey. Surprise email! haha. Wednesday is Veterans day, which means the library is closed, so they moved this weeks p-day to tuesday. So hopefully you read this before wednesday. haha.
We have another hurricane coming up from the gulf that might hit here. But some of the members said that the ones that come from the gulf really don't do much by the time they get here. They said the ones that come in from the atlantic and go up the carolinas are the ones to watch out for. You ever hear of Hurrican Isabel? that hit here a few years back and it wiped out power for like 4-5 days for like, almost all of Virginia. One of our members said that they said on the news that they were going to lose power, and they lost power hours before the storm even hit. It was that bad. So hopefully we don't get anything like that. But the area I'm in has had tornadoes before. Not in the main town here, but out in Victoria. I should mail you a map of my area. I don't think you've seen that, have you?
Ohhhh I forgot to tell you something haha. So these two new members moved into our branch last transfer and they are awesome. They are named the browns (don't put this on the blog obviously haha) and brother brown reminds me so much of dad it's so funny. He works at the military base next to blackstone called fort pickett as an aircraft controller. He's a civilian though, not part of the military. But anyways he was telling us all this crazy stuff that he did in the miltiary. He told us how he was stationed in cuba at guantonamo bay back in the 70's. He said that they actually started a little war that no one really knows about. It was crazy.They said that at night the cubans would herd cows into the mine fields and set the mines off and then the american soldiers would just start opening fire into the darkness haha. The cubans did that just to mess with the americans.
Last week we had an excellent week! our goal is to get a minimum of 20 lessons every week, but we rarely get close. This last week we almost made it! 17 lessons. That's the best it's been since I've been here. Me and my companion had a good talk about the work here last night. Basically talked about if we were working as hard as we could or not. But things are going good. We have our once a transfer interviews with President Millburn this saturday so that'll be good.
But anyways. things are going good here. Anyone who might send me mail needs to send it to the mission office otherwise it might get here too late if I end up getting transferred. So we'll see.
