Well, as I said before, neither of us got transferred, so it looks
like I will be "dying" in Pickerington with Elder Carter. The reality
of how short a time I have left is becoming more and more impressed
upon my mind. Each day is now both very long and very short. We have
been able to do some good things, though, which has been nice. For the
first time in a while some people are actually answering their doors.
We have been able to talk to a few people that we have been trying to
contact for a couple of months. We hope some teaching appointments
will result. We have spent more time knocking on doors, which hasn't
been too bad. We also had a good new-member lesson with K. There
was an IMPRESSIVE thunder storm last night. Sadly, the seal around our
window isn't completely sound and we had a few leaks! Thankfully
plenty of Elders have abandoned old, nasty towels in our apartment.
There were several inches of water in the parking lot. Crazy!
It is weird to hear about all these people leaving on missions
and coming home from missions and getting married and such. Good job
on your race, Mom! That's neat that you heard from Elder Blalock. It
sounded like the end of his mission went well the last time I talked
to him. I racked my brain and couldn't remember a Chris Davis, though.
Hmm. Anyhoo, I hope you all have a good week!
