holy productive week batman!
Hey hey hey, how is everyone? I'm doing super rad. Today is a great day, and i'm glad to be writing in my blog today.
Highlands is of the heezy fo sheezy. The ward seems semi fired up about missionary work, and there are a lot of cool members in the ward. They seem like they "get" the whole being a member thing.
So... i bought a guitar! w00t! Last tuesday, i found it at a pawn shop for 99 bucks, and its a pretty good one. Its a johnson, and the strings feel right, so i figure it cant be that much of a peice of guitar. Now i need tabs and the sort, so if you've got any, send them my way.
What else indeed, i'm going to update more in just a sec when i think about the week. Oh yeah, this website design isn't mine, but its a template. I added some personalizations to it to make it work better, and i redid the right column and stuff, so yeah, i can't take too much credit for that.
So we had zone conference on friday. I love zone conference. We had 51 confirmations last month. thats a new record. BUT WHATS EVEN A BIGGER RECORD... 36 off of door finding. The missionaries in this mission are working so hard, and right now they're doing it alone. 5 member refferals last month. We need to shift focus off of door finding and to more productive methods of finding people to teach.
The Mystery illness is leaving. I don't know whats wrong with me, but i don't feel as tired anymore. My companion gave me a blessing, and since then i've felt better. The healing power of the priesthood in action. Don't ask me why, but i've always been scared to get blessings. Probably because of my oldest sister and what not, but you know, the priesthood is here to be used. I used to feel weak when i would ask for blessings, but now i feel privelaged.
So i suck at writing everyone. I haven't written anyone since i got to highlands, and now i need everyone's new addresses for the summer. I need a couple things specifically.
#2--dates you'll stay at this address
#3--when you're going back to school
Go ahead and e-mail me those things if you want a letter, and i'm more than likely to write you. I feel bad, and deservedly so. I get e-mails from family, and from some other folks, whom i appreciate for writing, so i'll work hard on sending you guys some letters this upcoming week, or whenever i get your informaion. If you want a guarenteed letter, write me, i promise i'll write back. I still owe amy a letter, so when you read this amy, i want to send you a letter and a tape, so make sure that you get me your address asap. On a side note, i'll send more tapes out too, since i've got a wonderful guitar.
Jessica got baptized on saturday! W00t! it was awesome to see her get baptized. She's been going to church for around a year, so it was cool for her to finally take the plunge. I confirmed her, and its cool because i completly forgot the confirmation prayer. I just sat there for like 30 seconds and then all of the sudden the spirit took over.
my family rules. I love them so. The mertlich mob, the becketts, rick and wendy, ryan and tonya, SUE-freaking-ANN, and of course my parents. They all rule so much.
this morning we went and played tennis with some 77-86 year olds. It was superbly slow, but relatevly fun. I enjoyed it at least.
Oh yeah, last but not least, i am almost out of money this month. I'm such a moron when it comes to money management sometimes. this month, i just spent it on random crap, so next month (well, 11 days) i'll do so much better with that bling bling.
Add comments that ask questions if you want any particulars answered. This mammoth update makes up for all the other crappy ones i've done for the past couple weeks. Like I owe you people something... pssh. =)
Love you all!
