To all the Mothers in the world I want to say happy belated Mothers Day.
Because I’m only allowed to email on P-Days (Monday) I can’t say it soon enough, but we as missionaries greatly appreciate our mothers in all that they do.
Monday (Last Week): Surprise exchange start.
Tuesday: Went on exchange with another elder in the district, with an Elder Jensen and we worked in the Concord area for the day
Wednesday: District Meeting, Great experience there.
Thursday: We did a little service to some ward members, and we worked in Pembroke until later in the day when we had our first set of Home Teaching appointments.
Friday: Weekly Planning, and a dinner with another family (The Ward is awesome)
Saturday: Traveled to Franklin and worked up there and then met with another Home Teaching appointment and had dinner as well.
Which takes us to Sunday: we visited with another member and we taught a lesson, had dinner, Skyped, and talked about the weather patterns that I should expect during my stay in the Concord area.
Speaking of Skype, as it was Mothers Day, we (the missionaries) were given the opportunity to skype to our families. It was a wonderful experience to see them again after 2 months of not seeing them, I only wish that we could do it more often.
Doing well in New Hampshire, with exception to the weather. It is way too humid for me; I’m used to the heat, but not the humidity…
Let me tell you some interesting things about New Hampshire:
- Concord is not pronounced Con-CORD, it is CON-curd.
- Penacook (where our apartment is) is technically Concord in administrative functions, but all the people live in Penacook.
- New Hampshire’s roads are not organized like ours are. There are random one way roads scattered throughout Concord and the surrounding areas. Its just a little annoying…
Hope you have a good Mothers Day and I hope you have a good week.
