Hey y'all! So it has rained ALL week. ALL WEEK. We have never seen this much rain
It made for a dreary Independence day, as well as rained on
our missionary work party lol... Tuesday I went on exchange with the ZL's, which was fun; I was with Elder Hoyt, who is from Canada (eh?). It was SO nice to be in a car all day; we meet a lot of interesting people while contacting; one guy said, "Holy *beep*, it's the Mormons! How the *beep* are ya?" He was the nicest person we met all day; he is an atheist, but he was super nice and animated. Also met a Russian lady and some crazy people; doesn't get better than that! Wednesday it started DOWN POURING; we got absolutely drenched! Good thing I was wearing a polyester tie... Friday and Sunday we saw Becky and Larry, and had good visits with them. They are getting closer, just slowly... We talked a lot about obedience and church attendance, but they haven't come yet; we brought the bishop with us, hope that helps... Not much happened this week; just a lot of rain and a lot of knocking doors with not a lot happening yet. Had one nice family let us in and give us water; they prayed with us, but don't seem interested in converting; the world is full of nice people of all faiths... Elder Christensen, our visa waiter, is heading for Australia in a week; we'll miss him, but we are also excited he is finally going where he is supposed to be; my only son has grown up so fast *sniffle*... All my friends in the Conyers Zone got the ax; now they are in the Georgia Atlanta Mission... oh well, at least I can e-mail them now... I will be coming back home without any money or civilian clothes or car or driver's licence lol so I'll go wherever you will take me... I am sending some boxes home (to the Hall's address; idk where y'all are now...) full of ties and books and stuff I can't really take with me lol... This ID thing has been the biggest headache for the past 6 months lol! I have been trying so hard, and when I finally thought I had all that I needed, they didn't accept my letter signed by President that says I don't have bills or school records or work records to prove my residency, so I'm gonna try a different DMV and see if they would be more accepting; I'm gonna try still to get an ID, but Sister Conners and I have a few ideas if that doesn't work... I had a UVU ID at one point back home, I have no idea where that is at home... I'll keep trying on my end; if you find anything with my picture on it, that would be cool lol... I haven't really noticed a difference being DL; I just take numbers and conduct district meeting... I am responsible when things happen, but nothing has happened yet (knock on wood)... Being organized is one of my achilles heels, but it's been working out. On the fourth we just tracted all day; we had hot dogs at a member's house, but no fireworks; it has been raining all week, so everyone in town missed out, not just us lol! Sorry this is super short, not much has happened aside from trying not to think about home... Love y'all so much!
