The one where I have a lot of late nights

This week was very average. Not a lot happened, which for most people
is great but for us it's basically the worst thing. We did go on two
exchanges this week. They were a lot of fun. But I'm getting ahead of

Monday night was good. We went over to a family in the wards house for dinner
and they served us a pork loin. Unfortunately, two very bad
circumstances came into play. One, Elder Burkhart is allergic to pork,
two, Elder Burkhart is unable to recognize if the meat he is eating is
pork. Long story short, he had to excuse himself from our reading of
the Book of Mormon and we left with a
bottle of Pepto Bismol.  So I had to punch it
home, 80+ mph on backroads, passing semi trucks like its my day job,
just so we could make it to the church in time. There was no way he
was having round two in the passenger seat. #jesustakethewheel

Tuesday was the first of the exchanges this week. Elder Kristensen,
came with me to our area. It was great. It poured rain which put a
damper on our plans but it all worked out in the end. He felt really
bad because he called one of our investigators intending to teach a
phone lesson and set up an appointment but ended up getting dropped
instead. Oh well. Our next exchange was Thursday. This time I went
with Elder Kristensen to his area. That was a lot of fun too. We
talked late into the night.

This Friday we had a zone meeting. The wonderful Sister Champagne
brought us donuts. They were delicious. We learned so much at our zone
meeting about being consecrated. Granted it is a bit of a confusing
topic. We got told last time we had zone meeting that we are supposed
to be using our personalities. This time they told us that we have to
give up anything that makes us unique if we want to be an effective
missionary. It's weird. There are a lot of contradictory things about
missionary work. So I just do what feels right.

Love you all!
Send me pictures, read your scriptures
