“It ain’t the heat, its the humility”

First off let me tell you about Wednesday. Incident #1 My closet was leaking water so my carpet was all wet. #2 It was 500 degrees #3 Someone rear ended us (luckily it just left a little scratch) #4 I was attacked by a pitbull! Luckily it was just a cute little pit puppy 🙂

 

200% Humid

As I’m sure many of you know, it was Cow Appreciation Day on Tuesday. The Sisters had us take care of a mouse in their apartment in exchange for cow spots for free chick fil a. Totally worth it!

Week 46

I’ll get straight to the point. This week we had zone conference and exchanges. So we spent a lot of time outside of our area. Zone conference is always a great time to think about how you can improve as a missionary. We talked a lot about our studies and becoming better planners.

The Calvins had us over for dinner on the 4th of July and we got to spend some time with them. They’re such a nice family! We were gonna try to see some fireworks but ended up just going home so I saw 0 fireworks this year. 

RIP Elder Honn

Elder Honn had been saving a suit to burn in celebration of finishing his mission so we thought of which member would let us burn something in their backyard and the Brannons came to mind and they happily had us over.
We drove to Birmingham with 3 seats filled but came back with only 2 filled. Elder Honn is now gone. 

Also my first companion Elder Matthews finished his mission. It’s crazy it’s almost been a year since I got here!

Honorary Missionary Mama

Well another transfer is coming to an end!

Transfer News: Elder Honn will be going home to Boise, Idaho (RIP) and Elder Jessen and I will be staying in Northport for another 6 weeks. I’m glad to be staying I love the members here and will be sad when the time comes to say goodbye.

Elder Honn will be missed.

It rained so much and Elder Honn and I made the decision to get out of the car and play basketball for a couple minutes in the pouring rain. It was quiet the experience and the seats in the car were wet for the next 3 days!

The rain came down and the floods came up

Things are heating up here in Alabama. It gets so hot and humid its terrible. I can’t complain though cause we have a car. 

Last week we helped the Wrights put together a swing set and they had us over for dinner this week. The wife is a member but the husband is not. They have 3 little kids and they’re a really nice family. Brother Wright has a modified Volvo and took us out for a ride. His front seat is stuck pushed all the way up so Elder Honn was squashed up against the dash in the front seat. It was a fun little cruise.
