Elder Tyler Fullmer – The card

This week was a real mess. We got a lot of new missionaries in and
that is always a pain to handle added with the fact that we had a
transfer of 80 or more missionaries. This time it was a “Let’s guess on
who will stay not who will go.”  President was really secretive about
the whole thing, it was really funny. Well now Elder Machado is off in
Chepéco and he still calls us every day with a problem. Seems like he’s
about ready to die out there. Hot and he’s not used to actually working
as a missionary. He got really used to the way things were here in
the office. I however have still got a crap ton of things to work out
seems like things never stop going wrong but that’s life I suppose.
President left to go to São Paulo and participate in the mission
president conference there. It was to supposed to be just me and
Elder Bateman here but what do you know! One of the Assistants who just
(doesn’t) seem (like) to want(s) to leave decided that he was too sick to go to an
area and has been here with us. Flip it’s so aggravating. Me and E.
Bateman are going crazy with him.

This p-day was way low key we had a lot of time sleeping which was a
nice way to go and then we played War-cards. (It’s like) the normal version is
Risk but they also turned it into a card game which was way cool. It
took us an hour and a half to finish I ended up winning much to his
surprise. We probably won’t ever play it again because we both were
getting so aggravated. I wanted to sleep in the hammock but I forgot
how little time we actually have and also how much time I was going to
sleep for.

We met this really cool family. One daughter is inactive (according to
one of the sisters in the ward) and the other is serving a mission.
Elder Bateman swore he heard something about sons but they didn’t
really say anything about sons so we didn’t push anything. They have
been taught by everyone and their dog but were dropped a long time ago
so were hoping to try and help them learn and gain a testimony. The
daughter says that the dad is a little scared and the mom just doesn’t
want to change. I’m thinking that the dad is just scared to change
without his wife so let’s hope we can help. They really are really
cool and seemed to like our visit but let’s see if they will be
willing to change their religion. We’re hoping to go back this Sunday.

So it’s already November that’s really crazy. It’s been over a year since
I got my call. Pretty soon ill have a year and then it’s just a countdown not up he he. I know i know stop looking so far in advance but I can’t help it I got really trunky this week. My ZL and DL both went
home and the better AP is going home the next transfer. I really don’t know what I’m going to do if we get another AP like the one we have right now I’m done dealing with this one. He’s lazy, prideful and just
does things that make you wonder if he’s really being the best example. I know we all have our things we are working on but I’ve lost all respect for this assistant.

It’s good to hear that things are going all good back at home. I got “THE CARD” from the Sayers. I received their card and was like oh nice they sent me a card…cause i was remembering the package they sent. I stared to feel it and was like this is a thick card….and I feel a bump in the card and yes one would think that all of those things would have led to one thing but it wasn’t until i saw the special paper that I understood what exactly I was looking at was a wedding invitation. Yes it’s happened I got the first one yesterday but what made it even funnier was that the guy’s name is “Spencer John Hansen”. Take out the middle name and that’s the name of my first comp so as the secretary I’ve got a phone that can  call anyone in the mission so I asked him if there was any relation, there’s not but he laughed and was
like “what are the odds. It was very funny. Tell them I wish them the best.

Oh we had this random person with a member come up to us and was like “you think you have time to teach me a little bit about the church?” So we were like heck yes we can. Good thing no one including our instructor for the Gospel Principles class showed up. Sad but nice at the same time. We taught a great lesson then we had the Primary program right after that class. I used to really dislike that Sunday
but can I just say that i is one of the greatest days to bring an investigator to. You could just feel the spirit there so strong and all the kids were funny as always. It was really nice. I won’t take it for granted any more it really was a great Sunday to have an investigator there.

Anyways love all you guys not sure i have anything else.

The pictures are us and part of the English class. They gave us all
ties in commemoration of the first class. My hair is way long in these
pictures rest easy it has since been cut.

Love ya,
E. Fullmer
