Tons Upon Tons of Work Getting Done Here.

April 29, 2015

Hey y'all!
     This week has been amazing! Tons upon tons of work getting done here. Me and Elder Sunderland are basically redoing the entire area since our teaching pool is full of people who just aren't progressing, which means lots of finding which means getting to meet a ton of interesting people. Friday in particular was probably the strangest/coolest/ I don't even know day this week.  We had probably the strangest golden hour I've had on my mission. It took us one hour to knock three doors. The lady that answered was a Calvinist (look them up if you don't know) and she basically shouted her beliefs at us for a solid while, and cried quite a bit. The second door didn't answer and the third door was probably the best. It was this really old preacher guy that was very very animated about everything. The highlight was when he got really quiet and spoke to Elder Sunderland, "There's a mosquito on yer face." SMACK. A straight punch to the jaw basically. Haha it took all I had to keep it together. He held out his hand with the dead mosquito on it just to show us it was dead. Pretty funny. 

We helped rebuild some rooms this week too. It was awesome. We helped out with rerouting the power lines to this one room so they could have a washer and dryer inside. We dug up a few ditches and glued a ton of pvc and cpvc pipes together and worked a bit under the house. But we got it done in like 5 or 6 hours. Wish I got some pictures.... But I got a cool shirt from it! 

Me and Elder Davis had a trade-off this week in my area. It was super fun. We were basically teaching like all day which never happens.  Also we had an impromptu dinner at the bishop's and are going there again tonight! I pranked Elder Davis when he wouldn't wake up too. Evidence below. That was my week in a nutshell! Love y'all!
