"And now, my beloved brethren, I would that ye should come unto Christ, who is the Holy One of Israel, and partake of his salvation, and the power of his redemption. Yea, come unto him, and offer your whole souls as an offering unto him, and continue in fasting and praying, and endure to the end; and as the Lord liveth ye will be saved."

Birthdays and Sick Days

Hey everyone, our week was just all over the place. We had some great times and lessons but we sorta hit a small little nose dive as Elder Bowen got a little sick but I will tell that in just a sec.

This week we had President Foote over for interviews! It was great to have him come and just talk for a while. We chatted for a while and just discussed things for after the mission and advice that I could use to continue progressing while at home.

That next day we wake up and Elder Bowen is sick and having very bad diarrea. He was still planning on heading out (great guy) but anyone could see that he wasn't doing to good so we agreed that we would head out for a bit, teach Pierrot and some piano for a member that is learning and then get back to the house to rest. It is a good thing that we did as even during the lesson with Pierrot he wasn't doing to good but he was a baller and pushed through along witht the piano lesson.

The next morning he is still not doing good so we ended up staying home and Elder Bowen probably slept for a total of 12 hours that day and still slept through the night, the man was way exhausted. I kept myself busy with studies, a small nap, cleaning the kitchen/ washing all of the dishes,  some gospel movies, and making bread. By the end though I was tired of being in the house, it was just way lonely and not much to do.

But on Sunday Elder Bowen was all good so we were able to head to church and also attend some birthday celebrations that the South African family put on for Elder Bowen and Monsen! It was so nice of them to do that, they did a bar-b-que for us along with a giant cake! The food was delicious and so filling, it was way nice. Unfortunetely though I don't think all of the sugar and such sat well with me (I'm just not used to it anymore) I was not feeling to good at the end of the day but it was all worth it.

So not much this week as we were dealing with sickness but it was still great and we have an even better one coming up, see you all later!
