I don’t know what to write anymore, it seems like my brain just can’t think of things to tell you lately. Maybe that’s because I got food poisoning on Tuesday and I haven’t been right since then so my brain has only been half working all week. Haha, it was a Thai lady that fed us and it was really good, but there must have been something that didn’t agree with me. I accidentally threw up Wednesday night when I was talking to the district leader on the phone. Well, I didn’t actually do it while I was on the phone. I was laying on the couch with my eyes closed and the phone on my chest when all the sudden I felt even more sick, so I said, “Elder, is it all right if I hang up? I think I’m gonna throw up…” Lucky I did because I hung up and a minute later I was puking, haha. The rest of the week I just survived each day by a thread, and the only thing I can currently handle is rice. Good thing I’m with an Asian…
We also got to do the funnest service ever on Friday–we baked cakes all morning with a member for a fundraiser. Thank you, ma’am.
Church was pretty exciting. A sister missionary from the Ward got home from her mission in Spain so there were a whole bunch of visitors and that was fun. And our district also had a couple investigators there, and then a member showed up with two former investigators that he just met on the street. Gospel principles was really exciting, haha. There was one guy that just livened up the whole thing because he was SO incredibly funny. We were talking about the word of Wisdom and he was going so deep and he wasn’t even a member. He was like Tevya on Fiddler on the Roof, that’s the only way I can describe him; Tevya when he’s slightly intoxicated–only slightly. I was feeling so sick and there was this Tevya going on about how one time he spent £800 at a pub some place, “And that was on 50% discount!” 😂 I was like delirious and trying so hard not to puke and laugh, especially when I would glance at the Ward mission leader and he’d start giggling. Oh it was a struggle. Wadsworth issues…they’re real.
But this coming week is going to be crazy fun! We get zone conference on Friday, followed by a Ward ice cream Social (I’m praying my stomach will be able to handle things by then), followed by a baptism by the zone leaders on Saturday morning, followed by a session of conference Saturday evening, followed by conference all day Sunday, followed by p-day! Wahoo! And the rest of the week we get to invite uni students to listen to the prophet and eat ice cream.
I can’t believe this transfer is half over already! Where does the time go? Half of me is sad and half of me is really excited. Don’t get me wrong, I love the mission, but it’s a dang hard mission! Today marks 16 months of being a full-time representative and servant of the Lord and it hardly seems real. October is just about here and it seems like September just started.
I know our Saviour and our Heavenly Father live and love us, and I know they are always there for us. They will comfort us and strengthen us not matter what trial or opposition we face. They can heal our wounds and turn our sorrows into joys.
I hope you all are doing well! I love you all so very very much and I pray for you every single day. Thanks for all your support, thoughts, and prayers. Have fun listening to General Conference! Can I just say, I am SO GRATEFUL for living prophets and apostles. What would we do without them?! It’s such a blessing to have watchmen to guide us!
