Things to Say


All,

Easter is next week. YAY! However, with the two-ish feet of snow that has been dropped on us in the last day, it doesn't really look like it. Oh well.

This week... has been ridiculous. We're now covering three areas, basically. Hmong, Chugach foothills ward, and remaining as Tech Elders. This week, Tech stuff took all of our time. Literally. I counted. In the past week, we spent the equivalent of over 2 full days doing tech work. Didn't get to spend a lot of time in our other areas. Slept over at the mission home twice this week just because we were up at all times doing tech stuff. I'm tired all the time now, but it's a good tired. It's a working hard tired, so I'm happy.

This week we finally got our Lao investigator to come to church! Everything just worked, and he and his wife came. It was great to see them there. He was so happy to finally be there after so long away, and the branch really drew him in.

Anyway, remember those cavities that I sent home pictures of last year? I think they're still there, but I haven't had any problem with them. My teeth have never hurt, and I brush everyday (yes, mom, I Can, and Do, in fact brush my teeth :), but in retrospect, My dislike for these permanent Brackets on my bottom teeth have only increased.

 Note to my Orthodontist: NO, THEY DON'T WORK BETTER, NO THEY AREN'T MORE CONVENIENT THAN REMOVABLE BRACKETS, AND WHEN I LOSE ALL MY TEETH THAT YOU MESSED UP BECAUSE I COULDN'T FLOSS THEM, I'M COMING FOR YOU.

With love, of course.

Anyway, that's all for now. The winter has returned with a vengance (I told you Phil was a false prophet), and I'm still nice and warm, so don't worry about me. Enjoy conference in two weeks, and definitely everyone enjoy Easter next week. God Bless.

Love from the North,

Elder Darcey
