This week has yet again been awesome. The work Elder Smith and I are moving along was kinda hindered by a midweek leadership exchange, so I went to a different area and served with Elder Beals for a day. The area was Meridian South and it was cool getting to see that area and serve with Elder Beals. While there, we were at a members home, talking about my call to India and this happened:
Lady: It must be hard to teach in India because they're Buddhist.
Me: ....do you mean Hindu?
Lady: That too.
I thought that was really funny.
So Elder Smith and I played that gig on Thursday!!! The retirement home failed to communicate to us that they just wanted instrumental, jazzish music to be played in the background while the seniors ate lunch. Oops. We mostly played hymns, but we sang and played simultaneously (as we thought we were asked) and when we were done playing they said, "Uh, we'll call you back." We have yet to receive that call hahaha.
I've eaten some awesome food this week. Elk tacos, normal tacos that were DELICIOUS made by a member who served his mission in Mexico, and a stuffed, one pound hamburger. Am I getting fat? No comment.
The work is moving along slowly but surely, our zone alone found twenty-nine new investigators this week and the mission as a whole found 107!!! Crazy.
Hopefully I will have more time (and things) to report on next week. Sorry haha.
[additional note from parents: we added a photo sent by Roger Patterson, who lives in the Boise area and met Jonathan. Roger served his mission with Jeff in Costa Rica / Panama. Small Small World!]
