Wow. 5 months out on the mission, crazy stuff! The mission honestly has no sense of time, I might be in Kolob...it's a blast though!!
This past week has been great! We had the Doctor who is over all the missionaries in Europe come in with his wife to try and set up the church insurance with the hospital. Funny story, they're from American Fork, and are related to the Greenwoods in Lehi. Small world... anyway we went in and translated for them and then showed them around town. They were great! Also my companion, Elder Neumiller had to go to the doctor for a rash so I got to standby trying not to laugh as a young nurse stuck two needles into his rear to reduce the inflamation...We also got the doctor's phone number[as a contact] who was a really great guy! Anyway we had some good lessons this week and I got to have a Samuel the Lamanite experience.
Elder Neumiller and I were walking up the street past this little cafe and something hit the wall and bounced off and rolled down the hill behind us...we didn't think much of it, until we started walking farther up the street and something hit the wall right next to us again and bounced in front of us this time. I reached down and picked up a steel marble that had been shot at us by a slingshot as we were walking past. We were very blessed not to be hit and I realized that the Lord is protecting his missionaries now just like he did in Book of Mormon times! It's amazing what we experience as missionaries!
I love seeing the little miracles every week and invite all of you to appreciate the small things in life a little bit more. We will be happier, if we simply count our blessings! Hope you all have a great week!
