¡Hola Elder Taylor! ¿Qué pasó? Oh well thanks for asking! This week has been a pretty good one. I got a new companion, his name is Elder Mecham & he's from SLC and somehow he's yet another SWEET companion. I honestly would never tell you guys if I got a comp who I hated, but the truth is for some reason I've been super blessed with them so far.
Besides when it's raining, Cypress is super hot. It's been in the 90s pretty much all week. Along with the humidity (+biking everywhere) that tends to lead to... sweat. Ah, it's a fun time. The nicest thing about a bike area though is that you can eat anything and it literally doesn't matter.
The week actually went pretty well as far as the work goes. Taking over the area is a little scary, especially after just one transfer in it, but there are definitely worse things that could happen. Mainly I just don't know what I'm doing and yet things work out somehow. The Lord is merciful. I've been thinking that a lot this week haha.
Oh yeah and I also got to reach the fat age of 19 this very day! It feels the exact same as being 18 but I guess / hope I've matured a bit in the past year. If I'm honest. It's nice to be able to say though.
I don't really know what else to say but I'm honestly pretty stoked for this transfer. Things are really looking up in Cypress.
Hey y'all! It's been a bit of a long time since I last wrote so I figured I ought to get on it. This was a pretty sweet week though! It rained pretty heavily all week which made it kinda hard to bike to places, so, not gonna lie, in that way this week felt kinda unproductive. Luckily the Cypress Ward has sweet members who helped us out a ton this week with rides etc. so somehow we taught a lot of lessons?
One of the members we took to a couple lessons this week was named Brother Calder. Along the way we got talking about music a bit and I found out, not only does he have EXCELLENT taste in music but he was one of the original Aquabats!!! I was so stoked when I found out about that! He's pretty much a normal guy but after learning that he's pretty much a celebrity to me. He told us about the Mormon shoegaze scene that actually existed in the nineties, boy I wish I could've been part of that.
Oh and we went to the temple this week! It was pretty swell, that's about all I have to say about it haha.
Well, we got transfer calls this week and turns out Elder Whitaker is leaving already! Well.. He's been in the Cypress zone his entire mission so far so he's pretty excited about it haha. I'm a little nervous to take over the area but it should be fine. I'll miss that guy though, we ended up being pretty good friends.
Life is good in the mission. Yep I'm still alive as usual. Love yall! Have a great week!
