Small World

This week my feet really started hurting, it’s because I have been walking around in size 13 shoes and I really need size 14. But other than that I’m fine.

We had our interviews with our mission president this week. We didn’t really do a lot of teaching this week, but this next week we have a lot of appointments, so we will be really busy. President hinted to me that I’m probably gonna be in this ward for a couple more changes.

If you want to know some good scriptures to study, get a copy of Preach My Gospel, it gives a crapload of good scriptures, and they are about all kinds if different gospel subjects.

The last few days it has cooled off here a little, it still is pretty miserable during the day. I can’t wait for the winter.

My Spanish has been improving a lot. Oh, so funny story, we were at this family in my ward’s house, and the mom’s parents were over, and they were talking about when they were baptized 30 something years ago.  They said they were baptized by an elder from California named Gregory Smith, which just happens to be Bishop Smith’s name. They showed me a picture from their baptism, and it was Bishop Smith! Kinda cool huh. 

I love you all so much

Always short and to the point...

It was so awsome talking to you all too. And yea I’m really looking forward to my 6 month mark. At this point, when i think back about my life at home, it seems so far off. 

This week wasn’t too out of the ordinary. For new years, we got pizza and hung out in our house with the other elders that we live with.

I really hate the heat here. It’s not quite as hot as California, but the sun is a little stronger here.

We haven’t found any new investigators, but we are gonna try and work on that this week.

Once again, pretty much nothing else interesting happened.

I love you all,
Elder Allison
