Today I’m getting an Elder Taylor, don’t know much about him yet.
Last week on P-Day, we biked around, we found these drainage tunnels that looked awesome. We’re riding our bikes through these tunnels that are like nearly scraping the tops of my head as we ride through. Light beaming all around like a sci-fi movie.
As far as missionary work goes, ya know, I’m looking forward to it, and making the most of it, but sadly there’s not much new going on. We did get in with a less-active we haven’t seen in a while. Elder Restock is getting out. Elder Taylor’s coming in. It’s his last transfer, I’m not gonna let him get trunky though! We’re gonna work hard.
We have a meeting with the ward mission leader today over some finding ideas. Working my tail off here, but the work is just slow. Alway, always, always, working hard. So I’ll be staying here.
We’ve been biking so much, I have popped a tire every night for the past three nights. I bought this patch kit from Walmart with like 20 patches in it, so that’s great! Thank you to whoever came up with a pack with more than 3 patches. Every plant in this desert has thorns! It’s been raining quite a bit, that’s been nice! And Halloween’s coming up, which is like the beginning of the Holiday season, so that’s exciting!
On Tuesday, I’m kind of in a hurry, and I look down, and realize I don’t have my tag. We can’t really turn back, we were on our way to give a blessing. I’m so frustrated with myself and this situation. How did I forget my tag and my helmet. And within a minute I hear air coming out of my tires, I road over thorns. I had seven punctures in my tires. Nevada is a desert, full of thorns. I fill up the tire with air, it goes flat in a few minutes. We end up walking! While I was walking I thought about Cheyenne. She’s a the young woman we baptized last year, I just found out she’s working on going to the temple and preparing to serve a mission. Wow! I really needed to hear that. Such good news!!!
So By the time I get there, I’m not even upset anymore. I administered the oil and my companion administers the blessing. The husband isn’t a member, but stayed and watched, and it was such a spiritual experience. We didn’t stay long, but long enough to leave the spirit in their home. Across the road was a walmart. So we went there and bought anew tube and fixed the tire. I am constantly buying patches for my tires. That was Tuesday.
Any ideas for finding people or getting people in the ward involved? Share them. I’m trying to do my best.
I’m about tapped on my budget, I’ll be eating rice and noodles, leftovers and some oatmeal at home until the end of the month!
Feel free to send me a package!
