We had a pretty good week this week. Elder Guzman left and although he is missed, I now have Elder Jarnagin. He's pretty great too, and I have been having fun guiding him around the area.
|My new companion, Elder Jarnagan.|
Had some fun with the results of the rains we've had this past month. We were out pretty far a few days ago and as we were trying to save some miles, we cut through a mud road. Elder Jarnagin got a little excited and slammed pretty hard into a huge rut of mud, but luckily our half-jeep made it out. I reeaally didn't want to have to get out and push in my slacks.
|The rains have finally subsided ... and left us a lot of mud.|
Yesterday was probably one of the weirdest Sundays at church I've ever had. There was a man who gave a talk who didn't really understand much about the gospel. He kinda just read off an Ensign talk and mentioned every part that he didn't understand. It was actually really funny though. Afterwards we went and talked with a man that we had never seen at church before and as he struggled to introduce himself, my companion and I both got an incredibly strong whiff of alcohol from this guy's breath. We realized this guy had been brought in by a member but was drunk as a skunk. We took him to a Gospel Principles class, and between the senile man in the corner butting in to everything, the talk guy who didn't understand anything, and this drunk guy trying to relate everything back to Catholisicm, it was quite a juggle to stay on topic to say the least lol. But that's ok, we all learned something, and once he sobered up a little he said he would love to meet with us again later.
|Making our rounds.|
One interesting calling this week occurred when we performed a Spanish lesson with an elderly Catholic lady and we had an English speaking member with us. It was humorous because the lady was making fun of him for not understanding what was going on a lot.
|Still dealing with the snow.|
On one of our trips to the California portion of our Mission we went to a Less Active family's house and when we got there they went ahead and stashed their weed and bong and other marijuana paraphernalia because they forgot we were coming haha. California is great though.
|Making new friends.|
We also got to meet some horses and found a man's old postal jeep collection. Anyway, that's about it for me. Hope you all have a good one.
