March 7, 2016

This week was pretty good all things considered. Our car was in the shop all week so we were on foot/bike. So I got to ride my bike which was bomb. My companion has his bike, but he didn't have a helmet so we only rode once to the church since you need a helmet to be allowed to ride. This week we also got to go the the temple which was awesome. We didn't go to the visitors center so I didn't see any of the hot sisters unfortunately. We had some rough days too. We were walking in the rain for 3.5 hours Tracting/visiting people who used to meet with the missionaries, but stopped for various reasons. Only 3 or 4 people even answered the door and they weren't interested haha. So it turned out to be a colossal waste of time. But we planned our route so that we would end up at McDonald's so we got some ice cream which was awesome. We went on exchanges with the zone leaders. I was with Elder Shaw. We walked over 11 miles the first day and again no one answered or was interested. So we went to a members house and taught the restoration so that we could at least teach somebody. We were walking and someone pulled over and offered us a ride. We hopped in and were talking. It turned out to be Elder Blunk of the quorum of the 70. So that was pretty cool. We also saw some llamas. And we were walking through this neighborhood. We saw a lady outside working on something.

We said hello. She ignored us. We asked if she needed help with anything. She ignored us. Then her later bumped into this bird bath that was hanging up and water poured out all over her face and sweater. Then Elder Shaw says "oh no!" And she was trying to play it off like nothing happened. We kept walking and turned the corner and were dying laughing. Later in the week we went to dinner and the members were feeding us. Their kids were so crazy. There was this 10 year old boy who sat on Elder Hill's lap and called him mommy. Elder Hill promptly threw him off and said I am not your mommy ha hahahahha. Meanwhile another child was barking like a dog and another was running in circles yelling. It was crazy, but hilarious. And on Sunday we got to play with a bunch of puppies and take a pic with a donkey named Guss. It was legit.

Spiritual thought:
18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.

19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.

John 15
