Hey everyone! I'm doing great! How are you? How was your week? Anything cool or exciting happen for you? Another week has just come and gone for me, and I do have a couple of adventures for you this week.
Note: No one (being
me) was seriously harmed in the making of these events.
This week there
have been a couple of things that have happened with some dogs. The first
one, we were helping these dog sled racers, get to the start line of their
races. So after hooking up anywhere from 6-10 dogs on lines that stretch out
from the front of the sled, they were all very energetic. So much so that
even though the sled was usually tied to something incredibly heavy, i.e. A
car or a telephone pole, they were pulling with all their might to just get
going. They were jumping and hopping as much as they could. So I was helping
one of these, and there was snow on the ground and I wasn't
wearing boots, and my shoes have little to no traction left on them, so
when the dogs pulled I started sliding along trying to get some
footing. They drove for the start line and several of us were holding back
these dogs as to slow them down, and then one of the particularly hyper
ones who was jumping all around next to me decided to jump at my feet. I
didn't want to hurt him, so I pulled my leg back. Then my other foot was in
the air and I slammed down onto the snow/ice and got drug a few yards the
rest of the way to the start line. My side was a
little sore for a bit, but
the only thing that really got hurt was my pride, so I guess that's
The other one, is less exciting. We were tracting and we knocked on
a door, a man came to answer it and he had a small dog barking at his feet
that he bent down to hold on to. Just then, a bigger dog comes flying out of
the door way and bites my hand! Not cool! He didn't
really get me, just
enough to gum me I guess. Pretty ridiculous.
Other than that I've had a good
week! I had an interview with my mission president, he did talk a little bit
about me going home. Ah, it's feeling more and more real and it's very weird.
My companion and I have been trucking away at our missionary work here
had several lessons which have been great and we've met loads
of people. Even in the strangely warm winter months there are always
new people to talk to.
Have a great week everyone! God loves us and wants
us back! He's given us Jesus Christ to point our way back. I know that is
true! See ya!
