Week one of transfer five! On Tuesday (pday for the last week of every transfer) we went up to the San Andreas building and had a Nerf war. E Harral has a whole artillery of Nerf weapons, and we set up barriers in the gym. It was awesome.
On Wednesday E Harral left for the mission office so he could go to the temple and have his departing interview. He flew home Thursday morning. (in the picture he's not that short, we're just on a slope :-) E jones left for his new area, so Boeke and I waited at the apartment until his new companion arrived, E Maxfield. E Maxfield is from Wyoming! A while after that my new companion arrived, E Barrow! He's from Houston, TX. He's the oldest of four. He's pretty cool. This is his second to last transfer, so he could die here in the hills just like Harral did. He's never been in a hills area before, so I broke him in by doing service every day ;) Working on Jess's ranch, helping Mark Tresnor, tearing down a carport, and helping a family move. We've been busy!
On Friday our Elder's Quorum President in the Ione ward asked us to be on the judges panel for the ward's chili cook-off. Oh boy. The chilis were dang good, but the next day we suffered the consequences.
Sunday was wonderful. I love Sundays. In Jackson ward we had many people that we've been working with attend sacrament meeting. We had lunch with the Busis, one of the awesome families here, and had dinner and a lesson with the Hertzogs. I love the people here :D
Well, this afternoon we'll probably be going to Indian Grinding Rock, a state park in our area, with Boeke and Maxfield. Love ya!
