Thanks for the quick update Dad - too bad Mom's typing skills weren't as good as her ninja skills. Mom better do it next week. I can't blame Keeg for wanting to visit people as soon as possible. Hopefully everything goes well on your trip. I love Bill Reitveld, he is such a great guy. Andrew is finishing, Preston is finishing in a transfer, everything is going so fast, this time is really crazy. According to Nayt Leithead's email this week he is going to be home on the 17th of November. So many of my friends are finishing and it is all really exciting and everything but I don't really want time to be going as fast as it is right now. I am loving the mission. This week was slow but it was really good and looking back even my slow week flew by. Today was hard because I got what the mission calls our trunky call. Sister Jackson from the office called me to ask me where I wanted to fly home to and when, to see if I had any plans of staying in New Zealand after my release date and stuff. I just told her to send me back to SLC but it made me feel so wierd, not good and not bad it is kind of like I just keep pretending I am never going home. Have fun in México.
As I already said this week was slow, time is going by so fast and looking back I hate seeing a week where not a lot happened that looks like progress to me. Our investigators are being a little frustrating but more just disappointing right now. We keep trying to see them and organize members to come with us, and do everything that I know needs to happen but they are just not cooperating. We are working hard but things just aren't working the way I want them too right now. Missionary work is still work, it doesn't mean I am not enjoying it because I am sill loving almost every minute.
One of the highlights from the week is that we were able to find some Beyblades. Some of the other Elders bought them at a $2 shop and we ended up having battles like all through our lunch hour. We were then hooked enough to go and get our own. Eventually we battled ours, wanted more pieces so we know own 7 between us and we have been mixing and matching the pieces our two best ones are Dark Unicorn and Fire Lion we have three different arenas. It was a nice blast from our childhood, now a bunch of the zone leaders are getting them. It should be fun.
So now a funny as story about church on Sunday! There is a guy named Robert that Elder Bass and I found that we found out is Less Active Member. Well we have been bringing him to church for a while. Well he came to church with another Less Active member that he has become friends with. So Robert is a pretty big guy. He is shaped like a Pear on legs.. Well during sacrament he moved to two new seats then back into his original seat... Every time he moved his pants would fall down his butt and then his shirt would come up and he would have a big Crack showing as he walked around the chapel. After that, we had combined class for 3rd hour. Well as our bishopric was announcing opening exercises, Robert stood up and pulled out his phone and took a picture of the bishopric... It was so funny! We then sang the opening song, He recorded the man sitting behind him sing the whole thing.... THEN the bishopric was doing announcements and Robert stood up again! Then he pulled out his phone and took ANOTHER picture! It was dead silent and the phone made the camera click noise. The best part of the whole thing is right before he took the picture the 2nd time our Bishop leaned over and put up a Hang loose sign without cracking a smile. The ENTIRE ward was laughing! It was literally so funny!
