Jan. 30

Weeeeeeell, so a lot of the week wasn’t great... I’m totally fine now, but I just got a bad cold, the flu, and an ear infection this week. Went to the doctor and got meds, but had some of the longest most boring several days of my life while recovering.

I sent my comp with Elder Ah Mu to Tahoe Sunday. We were supposed to go up for the weekend, but I couldn’t do it. Then Sunday we were supposed to talk, but my throat wouldn’t really allow that and I wouldn’t have been able to stand the elevation climb with this stupid ear infection, so Elder Ah Mu bore his testimony and Elder Baker talked, so it worked out.

Right before I got sick we also got to go to Gardnerville and teach Lorena the first half of the plan of salvation, which was great. She really gets it. She’s such a great person! I don’t think I did a very great job teaching though cuz I was already feeling sick and thinking kinda slow. Unfortunately nobody has gone to church at all the last 2 weeks mostly because a kinda harsh flu has been spreading like craaaazy all over town and everybody’s kids are getting it one by one followed by them getting it. Everyone is sick right now in Carson, haha.

Now, best part of the week? Before I got sick...We finally got to teach Jorge and his family the first lesson! It went great! Jorge and his wife, Mari, really like the church and want to learn more and more, but, unfortunately, they don’t do appointments and they didn’t come to church...again. We have to help them understand the importance of commitments, but we'll also just have to stop by for appointments and when they can they'll let us in and have us start teaching like they did this week. That was a really exciting lesson though. Its nice to have a whole family interested in the message.

Anyway, we taught like 8 discussions. I wasn’t there for all of them, which was good for Elder Baker because he got to take lead for a few!

Meanwhile, I hope my friends at home are looking forward to the chance to visit a temple.
