Well this past week wasn't so fun! We didn't work at all because I have been sick since Tuesday. I have had body cramps, a sore throat, runny nose, and a cough. So yeah not fun! On the bright side I read Jesus the Christ and 30 Ways to Love Your Mission! So that was pretty productive! But on Saturday we did get out for a little bit and we got two lessons in so that was ok! But yeah other than that this past week was pretty darn boring! Basta, this past Sunday we had a Philippines area broadcast from Salt Lake so that was cool! It would have been awesome but it was all in Tagalog so I only understood like every third word. Basta, this morning we went biking again as a district plus two sister from the other district and it was really fun! We went out on a pier and looked out across the ocean! It's so cool being so close to the ocean here but it's sad because I can't go swimming! But yeah I really have nothing to say this about this week :/ My spiritual thought (I had a lot of time to study this week) can be found in the war chapters in the Book of Mormon! Just by reading the war chapters you can learn and understand the way people are. The way they think and why they do the things they do. To read and watch the pride cycle at work is amazing and it can teach a person a lot about the ways of the world! But yeah that's it for me this week! I love you all and thank you for your love and support!
*We went back and forth a bit about member missionary work. Our family talked about that tonight for FHE and came up with our family plan. Now it's time to get to work! He reminded me that when people feel wanted and loved, they return. Thank you Elder!
*He said that it is raining a lot there, more than usual.
*Brett wondered if his Harry Potter loving companion was casting spells on him to make him sick ;-) He is feeling better and unfortunately just had to let it work it's way through his system. Hopefully its a better week!
1 - another picture of his "batch" - they all entered the mission field on the same day
2 - after their district activity
3-4 - out on the pier - Brett said no one fell in and they only trusted him to hold them up
5 - His July 4th box arrived early. They are only taking about 2 months lately. It's going to be really hard for him to not open his Christmas boxes if they arrive a month early!
6-8 - on the pier - he said he wasn't really in the water and that there was a 7-8 foot drop
9 - enjoying some flavored tuna and chocolate pop tarts that arrived in his box
