The mission doctor and his wife took us out to eat at a fancy pizza restaurant.
An old english student of mine, whos wife had a baby and came to church (she was an ala) for a blessing. He saw me and agreed to take the missionary discussions! One of those hidden blessings of teaching english.

I dont know if Ive made mention of it but there are some really poor people that live in the space under the stairs in apartment buildings. They clean the stairs and the places around it and for that they get a free place to live. One of our investigators lives here. We nicknamed them the Harry Potter Couple. Its about the same space as under our stairs.

The perfect Day

First off, I would like to share a scripture: Philippeans 4:3 in the
Bible. Read it as a family it's pretty cool.

Next I wanna talk about something cool I learned this week. In the
scriptures it often talks about prophets receiving revelation AFTER
they ponder on something. I was reading in the Book of Mormon and had
the impression that in order to improve my studies and get all I could
from them I needed to spend time just pondering. Nephi before getting
his own vision of the tree of life was pondering on it, then later was
caught up in a vision. After spending this week really taking time to
ponder the things Id been learning and also some of the large
questions of my soul. I have received an almost non-stop flow of
personal revelation.

Ok let me tell you about the best p-day of my mission! Today we went
with all the missionaries in our district to a mountain near-by our
area. Hiked up there (which was beautiful) then spent a few hours just
picking and eating wild strawberries! Then ended it by playing
Phase10! It was a perfect day! The strawberries were wild and packed
with flavor! It was incredible! I got completely sun-burned EVERYWHERE
though! The back or my arms, legs and neck, really really bad! I have
a super bad farmers tan now, haha.

Just a few funny stories

So I was doing some service at the church pulling out this HUGE weed, and I was pulling and pulling and finally this thing came out but I fell back because I was pulling so hard. Well just so happens I land on a bush of stinging nettle, on my backside, and for a while I was very very sore.

Story number two. I saw the video of Trent for the first time two days ago. The one where the people give him money and he buys silly string... Sister Hill showed it to my district and we had a really good laugh. Trent's a cute boy, especially when he waddles like a penguin with an arm full of silly string. "and look at this poor kid..." haha

I used to teach English to a class full of young twenty year old girls, all looking to get hitched to an American. Let me just say it was interesting. They were constantly flirting and it was really funny. Well they just graduated and what do you know, they got me a going away package. A really awesome looking pen with my name inscribed on the side, a little notebook, and a bag full of my favorite Mongolian food! Whoo hoo, this is what you get for being a good(looking) English teacher! (Note from mom.... I'm guessing he hasn't learned humility on his mission yet. lol)

I also got interviewed on TV! This week was the big Mongolian holiday Naadam. We celebrated for three days straight. It was awesome, but I didn't get any work done unfortunately. Basically for three full days you just watch sports (wrestling, archery, and horse racing) and eat lots of Huushuur (a really good deep-fried mongolian food)! And I rode a camel!!! Whoo hoo, it was so AWESOME!!

That is all, love you guys

** PICTURES DID NOT UPLOAD SO WE WILL TRY TO GET THEM AGAIN NEXT WEEK*
