My Companion Is Driving Me Insane -- With Love!

I thought the cousins were crazy, All, everyone of you, but we're just small fry compared to my companion, Elder Terry. But really, really, everything's fine


Elder Darcey here. We've had a great (crazy) week up in the North. I can't kick whatever sickness I have (my branch President (who's one of the islands doctors) diagnosed me with Bronchitis for now) I lost my voice (a lot), Our investigator who's on date for the 16 of June might go to jail for a crime she didn't commit (Play the A-Team theme song here{the movie version, not the TV show}) and I might get transferred before then anyway because transfers are next week and I've been here 4 months already.

I love being on a mission so much. No jokes.

The weather's been indecisive yet again this week, which is really annoying for us.

I'll send pictures next week.

I got a package from my Family!!!!! It had a USB drive (it's already full; I have a lot of pictures. Tell me if I should send it back and you can copy the pictures to my computer and send it back to me) and lots of candy. However, it had also been beaten up a lot in transit, and the chocolate was basically destroyed. Yes, even the eggs in the bags. I ate them anyway, though, because candy's expensive up here too. So, in conclusion, Thanks much for the package.

I've got a simple spiritual thought this week, which is what I've been sharing around. My trainer (you all remember Michael (formerly Elder) Ivan?) carried a lightsaber around in his backpack so that he could remember to keep the Force (spirit) with him all the time. We as members of the Church have the gift of the constant companionship of the Holy Ghost, just as the Jedi have the Force.
We must always be worthy of that gift so we can share it with others (We're better than jedi because they can't give the Force to others). D&C 11:12-13. Substitute the word Spirit with the Force. The Force is a gift from God, and we need to be worthy of it so we can receive the blessings it gives.

Just because you're all wondering, yes, I also carry a lightsaber around in my backpack.

Love from the I-really-don't-want-to-go-to-Ketchikan-next-week-please-President-don't-make-me North,

Elder Darcey
