We had a decent week. Lots of cool 'stuff' and memories that went on, but really not much missionary work. Two days this week we were unable to do missionary work because of day long session of meetings with Elder Corbridge and then driving far away to do a companion exchange. Plus, the other day was Halloween and we couldn't go outside because of a massive storm in the morning/afternoon. Kind of made me mad last night as we did key indicators(stats) and zone managing cause our stats weren't good.But, its all good. We should have planned better and been more diligent. The meetings went super well though. Elder Corbrdge is a wizard, haha. He gave some great counsel and taught some good stuff. The mission and especially our zone needed it. I got to talk to him a bit and he a few times called me by name!
But the miracles which we saw were nice. We had the Tylers come to the ward Halloween party/trick or treat/chili cook off. They are so Mormon. They know a lot of the ward. They brought food, passed out candy and dressed up. We just love them. They are still good for their date on Nov 14. We taught them about the law of chastity this week. We are gonna go over tomorrow and teach the Word of Wisdom. Now we just gotta teach the nitty-gritty stuff. Thats pretty much our investigator update. All the rest aren't doing too awesome.
On Halloween, we stayed in all day. Well, except to take a trip over to the police station to see if there were any neighborhoods that would need help cleaning up after the storm. It made a mess in Alvin. We had flooding in certain areas, trees down, power out and etc. Also had tornadoes pretty close by, so that was interesting. We woke up to tornado sirens and phone alerts going nuts. It was actually kinda freaky. Plus we had or still might have fleas in our room from all the animals we see. I slept on the floor so I would stop getting bit and I just kept waking up to all this chaos.
I dont think i will be here for Christmas. I think I'll dunk the Tylers and leave. Harsh truth, but we'll see. I would definitely love to stay, but there has just gotta be more growth and new opportunities.
