Really, nothing happened this week. All of our lessons that I would tell you about fell through, and so we did a lot of “finding” and trying to work with members.
Though, of course the main thing that’s been on my mind recently is Deadliest Catch starting tomorrow! I’m so sad that I’m missing the new season NOT! I cannot believe that show is still on. Wow. Dad, I laughed so hard when I saw your post in my wall, but I’m not allowed to respond to it!
We had Stake Conference this weekend! It was a good conference, but it was kinda lame to not have the sacrament for 2 weeks in a row... not the best timing. We did have Elder Douglas come! He was one of the new 70s that was called last weekend. So, that was pretty cool to get to hear him speak at his first Stake Conference assignment. He did super good. Honestly, I thought he did better than the other 70 that came, that was supposed to be “training” him... lol. The other one just had an awful speaking style that made it almost impossible to focus on his message because he was almost yelling as he presented it... I bet if I could get a transcript, I’d like his talks... lol.
Friday was my last MLC (mission leadership council), which is a Council of all the zone leaders and sister training leaders, along with the assistants and president of course. It was a super fun day. I got some cool pictures with a few different people, so I’ll send those separate.
The bed bug thing is under control, but still not done. They sprayed once, and will a second time next Monday. Just in time for me to unpack all the black trash bags and pack all my luggage! Lol. The Davis’ said we could just stay with them until everything is officially done, so I’m grateful for that. We’re still chillin’ with them for another week! I love them. I forgot what it was like to live with a “dad”. Elder Davis sometimes does things that remind me so much of stuff you do Dad! Like the other day, Sis Walker was taking a bath, so he pounds on the wall. Then, when she gets out, tries to blame Sis Davis! lolol. Sound like anyone?
And Mom (talking about bed bugs…), you’re right. I was calm in the outside, but DEFINITELY NOT on the inside! I have made a conscience effort this whole time to remain calm and level headed about everything...
It sounds like you have some good changes happening in Westmond. I bet Rosi will be a great RS President! How did the change go with the EQ? I bet that is a good change. I’m excited to see the difference the combined force of the priesthood will make in the world. How exciting!
... I will definitely be happy to join you in your healthy eating, because I am soooo sick of eating out! Which is pretty much all we do with the Tongans... it’s a struggle.
Dad, yeah, I still remember how to make a mean brisket. The trick is, I need a smoker to do it... so, I’m not quite sure how to do it without, but I’m willing to try!
3 more Monday’s! Isn’t that crazy? I love y’all so much, see ya in a bit!
All my love,
Sister Erika Marks
