First off, wanted to tell ya I'm getting transferred. The area is getting closed down. Btw, new address is this:
P.O. Box 964
Wakefield, VA 23888
So yes. This past week has been rough. We were told we were probably gonna be taken outta the area because they were gonna close it down. And I felt really bummed about that. It's just been really hard lately with all this stuff. It finally culminated a couple nights ago when I just...broke down. I haven't cried like that in a long time. But I got a blessing from some of the other elders and my companion. So it helped. I've just felt like a failure. All these good things are happening when I get into an area and then they fall off. But I'm excited because this new area we are getting shotgunned in (both elders coming in are new to the area). So we get a fresh start and new things happening. I am excited to start over.
I'm also a district leader again, so that's fun. It's always a challenge but something fun to be able to help other elders.
The companion thing is working out. I mean we don't always get along but we work it out. I don't know what's gonna happen with the new comp. we'll have to see. His name is elder parker.
I do need to relax. A couple days ago an elder got mad at me for calling him before 10 (cause we aren't supposed to do that except in an urgent situation since that is our study time) and it like, gave me a anxiety attack...it's weird...I don't understand why I get all wound up, it just happens. So I am trying to work on it.
That's awesome that jordan won...I really hope he does well. He has so much potential to do great things, but he's like me and doubts himself. He needs to build his confidence now!
haha that will be awesome to get the Pond done. definitely need to send me the pictures of the finished product. haha today was the first day of school here. we saw all these kids leaving the apartment complex today. haha kids love going back to school, they just pretend they hate it...because lets face it, they ARE bored haha.
haha you're getting rid of the gaming chair? haha GOOD. that thing was annoying anyways. Tell aunt lorna that I am gonna write them all back things have just been hectic the past two p-days.
haha oh my gosh ryan is 14...that's crazy! Actually that's good that ryan wants wii games over a cell phone...Don't persuade him otherise! He doesn't need it AT ALL. haha. I'll tell you what, I walked into a gas station the other day and I saw an ad for a video game that's coming out and I was like, geeking out about it. haha.
Ryan will get into it. He'll have fun at the dances EVENTUALLY. haha.
I have to cut it short today, but I love you so much, and I sent you another email with something to you and dad about the ipod.
I hope your week is good, and if you have any questions you can call the mission office and they'll answer it for ya!
