Well, another interesting week come and gone. Seems I can’t get a week just of peace. But I figure this week I will get it. This past week we, as in the other Americans I arrived with, went to the federal police to renew our visas... yes... we have been illegal since March... haha so yep.
I slipped up on my journal writing last week just because of all the weird stuff that happened. But I am back on track. So hopefully I am writing in my journal correctly. It has been rather hard to find stuff to write. But I have a number of ideas in my head that are brewing of things I can write every day.
Oh! Today was transfers but as we already knew, I stayed here for another transfer. So haha. I will be passing the large majority of my mission here which is weird. Very different from President Batt, but hey. And no, my Mission President doesn’t have a son on a mission as far as I know. All of his children are married as far as I can remember.
I got grandmas letter this past week! Thank you grandma!!! I also looked over all the stuff she sent with me again. Question….What happened with all of grandpa’s books???
So let’s see. It will be weird with everyone going off to college in the ward, but it happens. Everyone here that I really know is getting wrapped up and heading home. My trainer is headed home today. The sister that came here with us is headed home today. So it is all slowly coming to and end. And I have to be honest most of us Americans are a little worried about it. There seems to be nothing to come home to. There are no jobs, no economy. And I am supposed to return and work, go to school and somehow get married. A lot of missionaries are not looking forward to this. And I am not going to lie, neither am I.
So now some good questions for you. What are the future prospects for a lawyer or someone with a political science degree? Is it bleak? or still strong?
I would love to have gone on the high adventure. I am so ready to get back on the water. haha. But that will have to wait some time.
My card is working here now. Just happens though that the church here doesn’t accept it so haha. Makes it a little harder to get the stuff I need.
So, are you all doing FHE? Studying the scriptures? Praying together? I realized I haven’t asked in a little while. How are you all doing?
What grade is Logan going into? He will be a junior, right? He needs to start looking at scholarships or he will be high and dry.
Well, I hope all is well with you!!! Have a great week and a couple good last weeks of summer!!!!!!
