Well. Things are finally starting to turn around. My companion
left for good Saturday night. President Weed came by to pick him up
and threw out a quick "Thanks for your patience Elder Gray". It helped
Anyway. Just a quick summary of the changes that've gone down:
Elder Garza got transferred to Finagnon and was replaced by Elder
Mejean. (French) For the moment we're in a threesome until poor
President Weed can figure out what to do with us. There's been a lot
of missionaries getting sick and going home lately. I still don't know
if I'll be staying here or being shipped out somewhere else.
One thing that is totally worth mentioning is that last Friday I
totally made me and Elder Garza some good ol' American om noms before
they took him away. It. Was. GLORIOUS. I was pretty proud of myself.
My Mommy would've been pretty proud of me too! We went out and bought
five pounds of potatoes, three pounds of solid BEEF, a bunch of sweet
corn, and everything else needed to whip up some EPIC mashed taters
and gravy.... and then... we feasted like lions. I'll send pictures
I hope y'all have the best of weeks! Love you lots!
