It is crazy how the world is changing. We knocked on a door this week and there was an answer without the door even opening. There was a speaker and camera next to the door that the person talked to us from. It was a little awkward because the person could see us but we couldn’t see them.
Speaking of change, we had transfer this week, and nothing has changed, I am still in Elizabeth Downs with Elder Pack! I enjoy it here though so it is great. I am excited to further the work in this area.
We were able to have a zone pday on Monday. We all met up at the zone leader’s flat and had a barbecue, then we played some touch rugby. At the barbecue they made some chicken hearts so I tried a few. They tasted like chewy chicken. It is kind of funny to play rugby because there are only a few Americans in the zone and we have no idea how to strategize while playing rugby so we get teased a little bit because we just run around like chickens with our heads cut off, but it is still fun.
My comp has been a little sick the past couple of days with a chest infection I think, whatever that is? So we had to stay in the flat for some of the days, and at first I thought that it would be kind of nice because I would be able to rest from the physical labors of the work and relax a bit, but after a little bit I was tired of it because I realized that the real fun of this work is to share the gospel with others, not keep it to myself in the flat. Luckily my comp is starting to get a little better, and I am excited to get back out and have some true fun.
We have a family that has been feeding us a lot, so on Saturday we told them that we would make a meal for them. They were a little scared when we made the offer because they were scared of our cooking but they finally accepted. I wanted to cook some kind of
meal but I didn’t have any recipes or enough time so I just cooked some spaghetti. That was one of the days my comp was a little sick so I had to do most the cooking. I think they liked it or they at least put on a good act if they didn’t. Utah
Well I want yous to know that I love you and keep enjoying life.
love Elder Hyde
AUSSIE TERM OF THE WEEK:The weather has been wet so we haven’t been able to ride our pushies very much.
