For every letter Harrison’s comp gets from his sister, his comp buys him pizza and juice…

(Sept 2nd)

Yeh, I didn’t get anything last week, sorry, and also I wrote grandma by replying sorry, I’m not in to big of a need right now, it is super expensive to send anything by mail and am not sure if I need anything so important that it is worth the money. and yes you do send it to the mission office and I have no idea how long it takes to get here, you did get the other package also right, that one was more important with my suit and mission cloths.

now for my letter

 

This has been another eventful week, we had the president meet with our district and he met with each of us personally, he also doesn’t speak English but I understand enough now that I don’t really need English, he gave me a blessing and it was very personal and powerful and he also answered all my questions that confused me on how we do things here, we taught memorized lessons and I asked if we could teach something else if we felt the spirit tell us to and he said that all of that was before, now we are a preach my gospel mission and will teach by the spirit only and follow the guidelines of preach my gospel, he is such an amazing person and I really feel the spirit and joy around him. since the we have had a real weekly planning where we did all the steps in the preach my gospel and actually planned for the whole week, since then I have also had the opportunity to teach unscripted lessons, and even though I am not fluent I can teach with the spirit and have really enjoyed these lessons more, we also study the book of Mormon with our investigators and explain it and how it applies and this is awesome. I have had a few interesting experience also three in one day, first after church we were outside talking with some people when a group of people including the bishop rushed a girl outside, she wasn’t moving and I wasn’t quite sure what was wrong but the spent some time trying to wake he up and eventually put her in her mom’s car and rushed her to the hospital, we left soon after this to go to lunch and I found out she had only fainted and also that we were going to her house for lunch, so we were eating with her dad and sisters until she and her mom returned home, it was an interesting circumstance but the were and awesome family and I really enjoyed eating with them. next event was as we were walking past a bar a lady called for us to come over she was drunk but we assumed we could at least get a reference from her, she then preceded to insist that I do something, and my companion was just saying not now tomorrow, then she grabbed my arm and pulled me over to a group of people in front of the bar and a few people commenced to try to explain to me what I was to do, I knew what they were saying but I said I don’t speak Portuguese and need to get back over to my companion to help me, I eventually got away but it was funny because they were trying to get me to `’hook up” with on of the pretty girls at the bar. it was very interesting.

Don’t need to include this in the blog

 

and then right after this we were teaching a lesson when the mom walks out of the room and starts to call us weak and her son pulled her into the bathroom and shut the door and she started shaking the door to get out, we asked if she drank or did drugs and he said no but every Sunday she did this and when their dad puts a bible on her face she revives and doesn’t remember it, possession.

 

I love my mission and we get to teach so many amazing people.

Love and miss you all

    Wow! You’re certainly not getting bored on your mission, are you? It’s great that you’re learning the language so well. Also great that you can pretend you don’t speak or understand it when people are trying to hook you up! 😉 It sounds like you’re making amazing leaps and bounds there. You are always in my prayers. When Tom served on the island of Yap it was very hot there too. They had him mail his suit home which he gladly did. Did you know that Tom and his wife, Katrina are working towards being sealed in the temple? I’m hoping I can somehow afford to get there when the date is set. Life is good here. It’s been a little cooler which has made it much nicer weather for working the horses. At the beginning of Spring I was in so much pain in my back that I wasn’t even enjoying riding. I got a better quality bed and now the pain is bearable and it’s fun to ride again. I’ve been very blessed! I’m sure you’ve heard about the horrible rain that Colorado’s been having, with terrible flooding. Manitou Springs has had severe flooding. Colorado must be on Heavenly Father’s naughty list because they’ve gone from a drought to terrible fires and now torrential rain causing flooding. The news even called it rain of Biblical proportions. Boulder, CO has had flooding so bad that they’ve had to send helicopters to get citizens out and to rescue students at the college. Tom said they have flash flood warnings where he is in WY too. Crazy weather! The signs are certainly there for everyone to see, huh? I’m just thankful we’ve been spared that kind of weather here in KY. I’m sending lots of love, hugs and prayers!! Love You Bunches!!! G-ma
