November 15 -- Transfer week, but ...

Still in Yerington! The pic is the back of where we live. You can see that we gather the recycling to take it when we go to Fallon; there's no place here to recycle.

I wasn’t transferred this week, but Elder Bush has gone south for the winter. My new comp Elder Seebach will be up here later tomorrow [Tuesday]. I hear Elder Seebach is from Chicago and has been out about 20 months. He used to be comps with Elder Bush and he speaks Spanish very well. Hopefully I can learn more, but we still probably won’t be speaking that much in Yerington.

A lot of people just weren’t really around. This whole weekend was state volleyball which Yerington won for the 4th time in the last 5 years so a lot of people were in Reno to watch that. We were able to meet with Richard for the first time. He is a very cool guy, but he is super, super sick. His legs are super messed up and he has pneumonia. We know so many super sick people, it’s crazy. He wants to get baptized, we just have to find times that he isn’t as sick to teach him. It’s going to be hard, but he will be baptized soon and that should help hopefully. We are also working with more less active part member families. We had 3 full less active families at church yesterday and two of them are also part member families. That was super good. We are going to start teaching some of them soon. So that’s pretty exciting. Bingo with the old ladies is always fun at the hospital. That was a good time. There is this one guy who every time B 4 is called says "and after." Its super funny.

We also said all of Elder Bush’s goodbyes in the last couple of days, which was a little tough because he has been there for 6 months. The people will miss him.

Oh, ya – our bishop, Bishop Darington is super funny. He always does this thing when we come over where he yells "Yo soy chupacabra!" and then takes off his shirt and runs at his grown kids. It is super funny; they are a super funny family.
