Oops, messing around....no more!!!

Do I have a story to tell you. First off... I made a huge mistake and injured myself in the process.

Six Stiches

I jumped on the back of a car haha (it was a members car) and went through the window, not funny, I was so mad at myself. I had to go to the hospital and well get six stitches in my hand. I did how ever get to see the inside of my hand. I took a picture of my injury so You can look at it.

You can see the pain in his face :)
So lesson learned no more horsing around and I did get to talk to mission headquarters and well yeah. Yes, they had a talk with me, and no they were more worried if I was okay. The member actually was more worried about me because they to was messing around with me.I do get them out maybe (if I am lucky) this week, but for sure next week. I learned my lesson, everything is taken care of and no more horsing around. So that has been my week in pain and boy does it hurt. I never had to take so many pills at one time before. I have to take 8 Aleve for the pain.

I am not being transferred but sadly my comp is being transferred. So I will be staying in my area for now. It takes forever to type.

I absolutely love the presents, I am on the Donuts right now. So yeah. Can"t wait tell day eight because its a ball of some sort... that is all I can pick out of it. I will Skype you and I will call you/email you when I have a specific time. Sorry I am trying to be prepared but I need to talk to the people that are in charge of us. So Sorry I am really trying but this week has not been the best.

Christmas Conference "Awesome"

Well I did get Grandma's package and I forgot that it was a Christmas Present and well I opened it haha. I loved everything inside of it.

My week has of Course been busy. We had a Christmas Conference and that was totally awesome. Well it was awesome because we gathered (the whole mission) in the Kirtland Temple. Which there never has been that big of a group since it was first built. We sang the Spirit of God and it sounded awesome. We also sang a lot of Christmas songs. 

Well, we dropped six investigators because mainly they don't want to change. They were okay with us not coming over so we had to drop them (with our hearts saddened), but you get them just as fast.

Transfers are next week, they are right before the Holidays so that packages can get to the missionaries before Christmas and before they transfer to their new area.

Christmas Conference (Visitor Center - Kirtland)

I am looking forward to talking with you. Just gets me more excited every time I think about it.
