No P-day adventures today. We still haven't gotten word on the ostrich-riding but hopefully that one will work out eventually :) Me and Elder Hicken have had 12 P-days here so we're kinda running out of EPIC ideas for P-day. Do you guys have any? We'd love to hear em!
Soooooooo...... I'm terrible at writing in my journal at this point..... I write spiritual thoughts in my spiritual journal maybe twice a week but my daily journal has kinda become a monthly journal hehe. Sorry! Don't be too mad at me! I just need to make it a habit like it used to be. I still have about 700 pages to fill up so I should be good :) How's you journal writing going?
Waking up at 6:30 used to be tough but over the last 2 transfers I've been doing great at dragging myself out of bed right at 6:30 and coming downstairs and sitting on the couch haha. I should probably start working out so I don't look like a twiggy tree when I get home but that's another habit I'll still hafta work on.
Haha, the whole reason we made Elder MacMac was to give him to a member. We had been saving our bottles for 2 transfers when a member said she needed 100 bottles for a class. We decided it'd be more fun to make a man than just take sacks of bottles to her. It was pretty great watching people's reactions as they saw Elder Hicken carrying it down the street :)
Scripture of the Week: Alma 8:15
I used this in our District Meeting last week. I LOVE all the missionary stories in the Book of Mormon :)
Alma Chapter 8 is pretty rough for Alma though. In verse one it says he's leaving a city(area) where the people were so prepared to listen to him that he was able to speak words to them that could not be written. In verse 5 he went to another city(area) where people came to him from all borders of the land to be baptized. In verse 13 he went to Ammonihah...... and got spat on, reviled, and cast out of the city. In verse 14 it says he was weighed down with sorrow and anguished in his soul because of their wickedness when an angel appeared to him and said this: Blessed art thou, Alma; therefore, lift up thy head and rejoice, for thou hast great cause to rejoice; for thou hast been faithful in keeping the commandments of God from the time which thou receivedst thy first message from him. Behold, I am he that delivered it unto you.
