October 10, 2016 - Week 26

Hey Everyone!

So had a pretty good week for the most part but there were some pretty sad parts also.

Started off the week with exchanges with Elder Yates back in the Riverview ward. It was way fun and I got to see a lot of people again, I also got to show Elder Yates his area since he hasn't been proselyting in 5 weeks. Elder White and Elder Gwilliam stayed in our area and were in the apartment all day except when they went to the Doctor to get the news on Elder Whites MRI's. Later that night they had a retired Member come read the scans with us and showed us what was wrong with Elder White (and an MRI of his butt, pretty cool) he has something called a  sarynx (something like that) which means there is a sac of unnecessary fluid in his spinal cord that they can't remove without leaving permanent nerve damage so he basically needs to learn how to live with it. And because he needed physical therapy and a few more MRI's they sent him home. It was all pretty sad.

Tuesday we did this super crazy service project where we ended up "digging out" someones basement. Which meant we were in a pre-established home filling 5 gallon buckets with rock and dirt and hauling them back upstairs and duping it into a pile. IT WRECKED US. We couldn't do anything else the rest of the day, it was way too intense. And we have to go back this Saturday to help do some more. Don't get me wrong, it was still pretty fun but holy poop was it hard.

Had another lesson with Zack and Karissa, turns out they'll be moving to Pasco by the end of the month but we're going to keep working them over so that when they get there we can send in the new set of missionaries to get them baptized. They are so awesome!

Saturday we got a call in the morning telling us that a Zone Leader was sick and they needed one of us to go with his companion and attend a temple Endowment with him because he was escorting someone. So I got to go! It was so much fun! It was a really cool experience. 

Well that is basically it for this week but still lots more to come this week!
Love you all!

The Young Men and Young Women in the Ward made us the was pretty good though!
