What up "squad"? How's it been rollin in the hood? It has been goin good here, livin it big. Y'all know how it is. Lol It was a crazy week for sure!! We were getting a ton of stuff prepared because we got a new mission Presidente!!!! Yup Presidente y Hermana Haws hauled out of here yesterday and we received Presidente y Hermana Whitworth!!! They're from Centerville which is pretty dang close to home and it's even a smaller world because they know Uncle Jeffy! It was a super crazy experience this week honestly. hahaha.
This week we went around buying materials, cleaning, preparing EVERYTHING for the new Presidente. It was super fun to spend a little last time with Presidente y Hermana Haws but dang it was a lot hahaha. We got into our area to work a grand total of 2 hours this week hahaha. Super busy but you got to do what you got to do! We took a little time to enjoy it though. One day before leaving Presidente Haws brought in all of his ties and gifted us all a few of them! They're a little wide for my taste but still how dope is that! It really was rough saying goodbye to them. Especially Hermana Haws because when she came to say goodbye she started crying super hard and it made me want to die. We have a nice new road ahead of us though!! Presidente Whitworth is super excited to step into the the spot and honestly is a really cool guy. hahah He was telling us about how he ran into Presidente Monson one time at a Jazz game when they were going through their special entrance hahahah. Being in the offices for the Presidente transition really is something else. Just seeing the change of keys is amazing and we're going to have the opportunity to get to know the new Presidente really well before everyone else!
This week a few of my best friends in the mish went home. Elder Stewart, one of my buddies from the ccm has been super sick for his whole mission. He got typhoid and salmonella when he was in this super tiny pueblito called Benemerito. So he's been having health problems ever since and this week had to go home a bit early! But I remember something that my boy Hunt said when he came back from his mission when he said "God gives his hardest battles to his strongest soldiers." He's a super cool guy and I'm gonna miss him a freak ton but he did what he was called to do! Also some of my other friends went home like Werner and Schwab. hahaha Cool guys and I'm gonna miss them. Schwabs parents came down to pick him up and they took us out to dinner one night! They took us to eat barbecue and I ate some nice tender brisket. hahahah Best thing I've eaten in a whole year!!!
Super cool week and can't wait for what the next one has to bring!
Love you all.
