Last Monday was Elder Gurr's birthday! He got a package from his family and we had dinner with the Ganoes, our bishop's family. It was awesome. I ordered a "Mormon Messages" DVD from Deseret Book for him. Those short videos are so inspiring when teaching principles like the Atonement or families or our purpose on earth. It was also Elder Hubbard's birthday this week, so we celebrated that. Our apartment is kinda "caked-out" with all the sugar foods that we have eaten.
Well, next week is transfers (already!). I hope that either I'll stay with Elder Gurr or get a new missionary. I think it would be fun to train, but Elder Gurr has been my favorite companion. The ward loves him too. We'll find out next Monday. A little more about E Gurr: he is going to Dixie State in St. George for graphic design. He is an amazing artist. He loves the outdoors and wants to work as a wildfire fighter. He worked at Brianhead as a trails manager. He loves motocross and is really good at freestyle. He is the oldest boy of seven. Yeah, he's a pretty fly guy. His family seems pretty cool too.
As a side-note we all cut our hair really short and buzzed in our parts. It makes it easy riding and sweating with a helmet on. I don't even have to use gel... it's nice.
