Sixty Nine Weeks

Hello Everyone!

This was a really good week, but to be honest it was because there wasn't all that much going on haha. It was a nice week where I was able to get everything done in the offices that needed to be done without worrying about it, and then in our area we had just normal days. There isn't that much to tell this week - Elder Venecia and I one day had to go deliver 5 new bikes to various different areas and following that we had to help some missionaries in yet another area move to a new apartment. Miraculously, we were able to make the move just loading the truck up twice, and both times we got the tailgate shut. Things included that we carried though were 2 mattresses, 2 beds, 2 desks, 2 book shelves, a couple nightstands, a table, a fridge, luggage, food, and miscellaneous other things. I didn't get a picture of it (I should have, it was pretty entertaining) but there ought to be more moves in the future. Elder Venecia did get a picture of the super pretty sky though as we were going down the road though, so there's that. 

As far as normal missionary stuff, we have been finding a lot of new people that we can end up teaching this week. A couple of the more interesting ones go as following:

One day as we were walking down the street, a man shouted to us and came walking over to talk to us. He said that he wanted a Book of Mormon to read, and asked how much one was. We gave him a copy (we don't ever sell them) and he was super surprised it was free. We then explained it to him a little and ask we were about to ask for his number to be able to call him and visit a different day, but before we even  he said "Well are you going to note down my number or something?" We have high hopes for him, we'll be passing by for sure.

Another one that was hilarious this week was an old lady burning leaves is the street - there have been an insane amount of mosquitos this last week and so she was doing it to drive them away with the smoke. As a friend of hers was walking down the street then, she shouted over asking if the smoke bothered her. Upon her friend's response that it did bother her, she then shouted back that if it was an Asado (a BBQ) then nobody would be complaining and kept burning them. It was pretty funny seeing two little old ladies shouting from one side of the street to the other at each other. It ought to be fun going back to visit her too.

Other than that though, there isn't all that much new for this week and so I hope that you all have a good week!

Love you all,
Elder McCollum
