Typical Day... I'll take a picture of our planner and send it to you but it's basically this:
6:30-8:00 a.m. Get up, exercise, shower, pray, and eat.
8:00 a.m. Personal study.
9:00-11:00 a.m. Companion study.
11:00 a.m. (if we ever get a chance...) Language study.
12:00 p.m. (if everything goes right) Lunch.
1:00 p.m. (once again, if everything goes right) Work.
Which means proselyting--going to appts we've made, and also all of the back up plans that we've made.
9:00 p.m. Be home and start planning for the next day.
9:30 p.m. (once again, IF everything works out) Call district leader, eat some food, journal, prayers, go to bed.
Lately because everywhere we go is so far from the house, we haven't made it home until 9:30 p.m., and don't get done planning until it's time to go to bed... It's all pretty dependent on how many appts we have for the next day and where they are, and sometimes it takes longer to plan because we have to plan our prospective route out for the day.
And then we have some days where we get to travel into Bahía Blanca for the day for a district meeting. We missed our bus last week for district meeting and had planned to go tomorrow morning. BUT Elder Wells, our District Leader found out that he had a leadership training that he has to go to tomorrow and Wednesday. Entonces, we don't get to go to Bahía for another week... I love Bahía, but oh well. We usually go to Bahía every two weeks for district meeting and that is my chance to see if I have any of those packages that you sent me!! So yeah.. kind of a bummer we missed last week, but that's ok.
Oh guess what! I don't know if I told you this but Amy Christensen is engaged! I got a letter from her two weeks ago. My first friend to be engaged while I am gone. The whirlwind of change and engagements has begun...
Hey, does Connor still live in MN or did he come out to Utah..?
I heard a talk a couple weeks ago from Elder Bednar. Will you read it and tell me what you think? It's called "The Way Things Are", I think. It's in one of the 2010 Liahonas, one of the summer ones I think, I can't remember.
I'm sending you some pics that I took two weeks ago at the end of the transfer. Some pics with Elder Wallace in Bahia. And some random ones from the past four weeks or so.
I love you Mom!
