January 12, 2015

This week has been pretty interesting...
Monday:  Went to Jakarta and played basketball for 2 hours and taught a lesson with Elder Barrus with a man who is really ready for the gospel.
Tuesday:  Had our Mission Leadership Council, got in a taxi and waited at the airport...  Flew 3 hours and 20 minutes on Lion Air (the smallest, most uncomfortable airline in Indonesia) back to Manado, and got to our house at 12:30.  What a fun trip.
Wednesday:  Did some service helping a member clean up some storm debris, then walked around with little plan because I got back earlier that morning...
Thursday:  Elder Eyre was sick, so I went with the Welch's and Elder Budi to Tomohon to teach a woman there.  She is way cool, but lives very far away.  With some of the extra time we had, we visited a pagoda.
Friday:  We had district meeting and English class and taught a couple really cool people, and that was a good day.
Saturday:  Also a good day.  Just teaching like normal.  And there was a baptism of the child of a member, so that was good.  We had a couple of investigators come, so I'm really happy about that.  It rained all night.
Sunday:  It rained all morning, so there were floods and church started a little late.  But it's all good, and things ended up OK.  Just a lot of late people.  Then there was a small party for the kid who got baptized, and we ate there, so that was nice. 
That's the highlight reel for this week.  Earlier today we went to a volcano for p-day.  That was pretty cool.  There were some really cool views, but I don't know if it really shows up on the pictures...  You'll just have to come here and see for yourself.  And if you wanted, you could invite me and I'll translate for you.  But after I finish this mission thing.  I'm kind of busy right now. 
Things are good.  Never been better.
