The roads out here are so bad. There are huge pot holes, and you can't avoid them, there are just so many. I feel like I am in the Indiana Jones ride in Disney Land, you know the one? Where the car is jumping around and all that? Yeah, that is my car on a daily basis. It can be a little scary, but the worst part is the people on the other side of the road try to avoid them by coming into my lane, and they almost kill us. Man it is interesting. Looking forward to a day I can hand over the keys and go back to walking, but everyone says that wont happen till I die. We will see.Okay, so we all know I can be a little weird in what I find funny. Well my companion is afraid of frogs and snakes. We were at a dinner with a member family and I was helping with the cooking, or I was going to at least, when a large frog jumped into the room, and so after some time I managed to catch it and then decided to go show my companion. He screamed like a girl and we all laughed. Then the other Elders got a fake snake that looks pretty real, and they recorded a time when they walked up and handed it to my comp, and he screamed and ran out of the room. That thing has gotten to give us a lot of laughs, since we have done that to other people too. I love it. You have to have fun on mission or it just isn't good.
I have come to have a deeper love for the people as I serve, I have seen struggling families, hard ship, fear and concern, and I have seen how a friendly smile, a hand of help and a kind word can change someones day. I have seen people have their family lives strengthened by serving them, and I always feel a sweet peace when I serve, even when it leaves me bone tired at the end of the day.
My companion is doing much better. After almost six days of being sick he is now better. I am glad about that, cause sitting in the apartment all that time was really rough. Let us hope that no more sicknesses will be coming our way any time soon.
