He has Helicobacter pylori which causes ulcers. Did they put him on antibiotics? The medicine comes tomorrow. That doesn't sound good, how long has he been feeling sick? He has been sick since Wednesday.
I had one of these this week in my big toe. Are they ticks and do they bite at night? No I sat down and took off my sock and there it was, no wonder my toe hurt all day long. There isn’t any infection but it still kind of hurts a little. Is that the first tick you have seen on your mission? No it is my third one in the mission
What is your spiritual experience for the week? it would have to bee the change in attitude of the branch president he has been super de-animated because he expects instant change. But I truly feel like the change is just about to get here, he even has started to plan activities. What kind of activities? We are going to have a grill party and cook meat and share a message. It was just amazing to see his attitude change. And now I feel that the branch is going to start to grow. We are working on looking for inactive members there are over 300 of them and less that 30 active. So we have a lot of work to do because this change is coming to an end and the last is soon to begin. Have you found any young men to get come to church? Well we had 4 young men this week. Hopefully 5 or 6 will come next week.
Tell something funny that happened this week. An investigator gave us backpacks that are completely clear plastic and it is hilarious. Well we have been using them so the man feels good but I truly hope it breaks soon so I don’t have to use it. The backpacks are great everyone knows what you are packing. Yes there hilarious and sometimes we just have to laugh about them. No one will rob us

What are you studying right now?
