that ward emergency preparedness thing sounds interesting haha. But I'm glad y'all are getting prepared! It's a good thing to do for sure. oh and by the way, "milkaholic" doesn't make sense. I've heard of alchoholics being addicted to alchohol, but never heard of someone being addicted to milkahol? Love how everyone doesn't know how to use word endings!!! haha.
That's awesome that josephs finally in the mission field. I'll have to write him today. I'm pretty sure El paso is in his mission. It probably covers parts of other states. That's intense though I'm sure he's going to be having the time fo his life. Me and wylie have started emailing so hopefully joe starts too. haha.
We have had some awesome weather too! We FINALLY hit 70 degrees yesterday. Which MEANNSS??!?!? Can you GuESSS???? END OF SUIT SEASON AND BEGINNING OF SLACKS SEASON YEAHHHHHH.
That's cool y'all are getting some snow though haha. Doesn't happen much there. and we are done with it ourselves...ha.
Oh man tell Jordan I am the worst brother ever and I am SORRY for not saying happy birthday to him and if I could afford a gift I would SO get him one. But I will email him right after this. But at least it sounds like he had a good birthday.
That's awesome that jordan is doing well in track. What events is he doing? Any throwing events? LOL. Not. I know you told me but I forgot. Yeah definitely let me see some pictures!
Your lucky I can use my companions card for today! haha well just send the card back whenever you can. it's not any huge rush or anything. taking pictures is just the kind of fun to do things. So whatevs!
I'll be keepin an eye out for the valentines day card! Hopefully it should be here soon. Tell Grandma thank you for that!
Things are going good! I'm not too stressed out or anything, I'm having fun. We had our first district meeting on friday then another on tuesday. So that was fun. But the second one I had to Zone Leaders help in organizing a little bit so it wasn't as stressfull. But the Sisters are all awesome in our district and way chill and laid back. So it's not a huge burden or anything. The only now I've yet to experience as a district leader is baptismal interviews! I get to interview all the sisters investigators for baptism :X That's going to be a little stressful but we'll see when the time comes to it. We'll have one this month at the end! Ugh!
The companero is going alright. He's kind of bugging me a bit just because He exaggerates a ton. I could tell when he was lying and when he wasn't, But I don't call him out on it or anything like that. I think you'd be proud of me! I've gotten alot better at just keeping my negative comments to myself. hahaha. But yeah it's been a bit of a struggle with teaching, just because he has a hard time remembering what we are going to teach and so I end up doing alot of the teaching most of the time. But I am being patient I haven't gotten angry because I know I am in no way better than he is. We are all learning together and I have my own individual flaws that are probably driving him crazy! But I don't really know how to fix these problems without callin him out on it you know? But oh well.
haha you're emergency "simulation" sounds awesome! I wish we could have the power go out! haha I wouldn't be dissapointed because we don't watch tv or get on the computer so yeah...haha. But we do light candles occasionally...haha.
Oh horrible thing that happened last p-day. GOSH. It was so gross. We had still been kinda getting settled in in the area and one of the sisters (before I got there) had given the elders before us a giant cheese ball thing in a tupperwear container and I had finished off the last bit that was left. I then proceeded to seal the container and tossed it in the sink. and there it sat for about a week and a half. a couple days before p-day we start smelling this weird smell but we cannot pin point what it is. we thought it was our garbage, so we took it out. We thought it was our fridge so we cleaned it. No luck. Then as I was doing the dishes, that horrid little tupperwear container burst open. and the most horrible smell I have ever smelled exploded around me. I literally gagged and almost threw up. Oh it was so terrible. I immediately threw that thing outside and lit a candle to make it smell better haha.
So that was my adventures of last p-day.
That's awesome that you are still reading scriptures mom! Keep it up! It helps so much more when you can actually get your imagination involved. Things just start to click instead of just reading information. I love it. I'm going through the book of mormon and (because of this thing we are doing for the mish) marking all the words and references of the savior, along with scriptures that have to do with certain topics. Holy cow you would be surprised how many times the book of Mormon refers to Christ. It's crazy!
but the scriptures make the day so much better! My favorite part of the day is personal study. Not even kidding. Because I can just forget about EVERYTHING else and focus on the scriptures. It's so relaxing and enlightening.
We had a fun experience the other day. We recieved a Head quarter referral a couple weeks back for this interesting guy. He is a bail bondsman. If you don't know what that is, it's basically someone who gets people outta jail for a price. But he is absolutely obsessed with Joseph Smith. Like he's also a mason so he's even more obsessed with him for that. He's not a member of the church but he tells us all the time how joseph smith had all the answers.
Anyways! I love you all a ton and am doing real good! I'm turning into a southerner though so watch out! I'm gonna come back saying y'all and used-ta-could! (not even kidding I've had investigators say that one too me.) Some other fun ones I've heard are "I haven't seen that in a coon's age!" or the word cotton picker haha. But holy cow don't say that because I never realized it but it's a really rascist thing to say! haha.
Oh and I saw a cotton field for the first time last week! It was awesome! haha
Anyway I'll talk to y'all later. Hopefully will hear from you soon! At least by wednesday!
