|with Edwin and Zam and Elder Galindo|
hey first things first.... HAPPY ANNIVERSARY MOM AND DAD and HBD JOEY!! miss all 3 of you so much. have not yet found a derek and julie here and the dogs here are all gross and disobedient.
5 months ago i hit 1 year. doesn't make any sense.
excited to write the big nasty :):):)
its been a really neat week! so something happened that i thought never would...... i got an american companion! Elder Brockbank from lone peak, utah (no he does not know any rosenvalls)! yeah, it's gotta be the weirdest thing ever but this elder is a really good guy. he's a really bold, sporty, and bright american. huge athlete and just knows who he is. He loves learning anything and everything so we just talk and talk and talk about all sorts of stuff which is very different than when i had filipino companions. its been an adjustment tho that's for sure. but its been nothing but sunny and up hill! he taught me a cool parable:
so the sun and the wind were having a contest to see who could get this one guys jacket off. just a regular joe who was walking down the road so the wind goes first just blowing and blowing and blowing on the guy trying to rip this jacket off. the guy obviously fought because he was cold and frankly just frustrated. the guy ends up putting another coat on. not very effective. then the sun just does what he can to heat up that area slowly. it gets hotter and hotter until the guy gets so hot and with his own free will just takes it off.
because last week our district leaders got released and Elder Galindo went home :( i had the oppurtunity to teach the whole zone in a district meeting and it was good. really some great elders in this zone! some transferred which is too bad ):
Edwin gets baptized on saturday!!! im stoked! and he is even more stoked!
hey thats such a cool trip of you went on to california to see emily and eric! me and my new comp got pretty homesick just day dreaming of the day when we will sit down at a good restaurant with our family. i really think thats all i want when i go home. earls or something. sounds 11/10 superb. did dad drive the boat? were you in the ocean? thats pretty cool!
thats about it, but i will sign off with a quote:
"there are few things so dangerous as a fallen lighthouse"
