1) Did the boots get to you yet? Please let me know when you get them.
2) Same question, different package--the Valentine's package from me. I think it was supposed to be there Wednesday.
3) I finally found a copy of the study guide for Jesus the Christ. Did you want your own copy? Or just access to the family's?
4) Have you ever noticed the descriptions of Pharisees and Sadducees (especially in Jesus the Christ) sound like they could be describing political parties--especially in Utah? Maybe it is just me....I couldn't get the thought out of my head as I read that chapter this week.
5) When will transfer week be this month? Any sense of going or staying? Just curious.
1. Nope. But we've got zone training tomorrow (so might get them tomorrow if they got to the office today) and exchanges this week, so I could ask the Hermana Training Leaders to watch for a package for me.
2. Nope. Same answer as above.
3. Yes! Is it via electronic device...? Or what? But yes, I would love that.
4. Also, yes! And the only thing they have in common is that they don't like Jesus....crazies. [I love Jesus the Christ though. It's amazing.]
5. Okay so here's what's happening: due to some meetings on internet proselyting for mission presidents that will be held in Salt Lake, President will be in Utah the first part of next week--which is when transfers would be. But, since he won't be here, transfers have been moved to the end of next week, I think to the 20th of February. So our next P-day will be a Thursday, about ten days (?) from now, so don't expect an email from me until then. Regarding what's happening to me next transfer, I'm pretty sure I'm going, but that's just the vibe I'm getting.
Awesome! Tell Maddie & Brytni congratulations for me! They're going to be fantastic full-time missionaries.
Speaking of Mr. Wilcock (our fantastic choir teacher at the high school), we had dinner last night with the Thayn's, in Bloomington 1st, and Sister Thayn said that she grew up in the same town as Mr. Wilcock. I don't know what her maiden name is, but she said she was good friends with his sister....so that was kind of random.
Also, the Thayn's are awesome. Their two girls, who are 8 and 11 I believe, LOVE Harry Potter. It was so fun, and I just felt like I was at home. It was great. They went to Harry Potter World over Christmas break; I will admit I am slightly jealous....but it sounds like they had a blast (and drank plenty of butter beer. which is a necessity.)
Hna Grant has a goal to sing all of the Spanish hymns, so we sing one every morning at the beginning of companionship study, and guess what today was: Love at Home. I expressed my dislike of the song to her yesterday, so you can imagine what the kniving woman put me through this morning....in case you can't imagine, this is what happened: as we read in the White Handbook, she inserted "love at home" at every possible segment. Needless to say, I was not "feeling the love" afterwards--JK, we were pretty much dying with laughter by the end.
So here's something that I realized this week that I love about my companion:
6996 - washed the car today. we look so awkward (all the time)
6993 - I am just so buff that I ripped this jacket....
003 - one of our Bishops sent this to us. He's the greatest.
009 - one day, sitting in the car after talking to this lady who told us she keeps telling us not to come but we (missionaries) keep coming, and I saw this event, and the following conversation occurred, amidst roars of laughter; I was crying.
Trying to take a picture for Facebook, as it still had to do with Christmas, and I made a face at just the right moment....this basically exemplifies me, but I decided it was better not to put it on FB
Hna Grant had Chick-Fil-A for the first time. man, Canada is missing out....
