It's Conference Time!!!!!!

Hey everyone!!

This week has been pretty interesting and crazy!!...

On Tuesday, we went to do service for a lady that we are teaching. :) She asked us to chop her yard (mowing it with machetes).. and it was quite the experience. haha.. It took me about thirty minutes to get the angle and how to swing the machete to get the grass (and weeds) to cut right, but once I got it down, I rolled through that yard haha.. It was so exhausting though! My jeans changed color from sweat and I couldn't see through my stinging sweaty eyes by the end. Oh, and the next day i was sooooo sore. My right arm, back, and leg muscles were just done for. It was crazy hard. But i am now a yard chopping master, and i have the blisters to prove it :) Thats definately why Jamaican guys are in such good shape... they don't have lawn mowers!! Maybe thats the secret to the obeisity problem in the States haha.. blow up all the lawn mowers and give people machetes.

Wednesday was district meeting in the morning, and then we did a trade off with Ochi. I went to Ochi to serve with Elder More for a day. He's a really cool missionary, and i'd love to serve with him sometime in the future, but we'll see what happens. But while we were there, we taught this lady who was posessed by an evil spirit. It was really creepy/weird. Anytime we'd start teaching truth, she would just moan and scream and stuff. It was crazy!! but the rest of the trade off went normally, and we had some really good lessons.

I cooked my first rice and peas (rice and kidney beans jamaican style) this week too. :) it was amazing!! so good. but it takes forever.. so prolly not gonna do it too often.

ON the way up to Norwich (a 20 min bike ride) Elder Ashton's pedal broke off his bike about halfway up the S crank, so we started the long walk back to town and have been walking the rest of the week. Walking takes forever!! some of the places are like an hour walk away, so i'm super excited for when his bike gets fixed :). But til then, we're taking the two ankle express. haha.. So, since the bike broke, its been a pretty exhausting week. but, no complaints. :) thats life

I'm super excited for General Conference this Saturday and Sunday.. Definately watch all 4 sessions... thats my challenge for everyone for the week :).. Me and Elder Ashton spent about 3 hours hooking up this PC-to TV thingy at the church so that the people here could watch it and when we finally got it all hooked up, it wasn't working haha... we messed with it forever and finally called a guy, and he told us there was a remote, so we found it, pushed one button, and it was fixed... super awesome... haha.. the whole time i just wanted to call my dad cuz i knew he'd know what to do.. but we got it figured out :)

But my time is gone... So til next week
