Well, this week has been a great week overall!
Elder Pattersons arm is just fine, he just has to do physical therapy at home to help strengthen it. The doctor said his fracture was 1 on a scale of 1-10... he even played Knockout (which is a basketball game, other names are lightning, gotcha, so on). Even before he went and saw the doctor, he never wore his splint and did anything he thought he could do, which is like everything lol.
A tragedy happened this week. I lost our phone...
I have no clue how it happened, but it did. Actually, that whole day was kinda rough. Gather around children, let me begin.
So it all began because When our Car was having trouble. Our car was overheating all day the day before. Our car had no coolant! We later learned that Cruzes are notorious for leaking coolant, and if it was having this problem, we would probably be without a car for a bit. UGH. So we had to bring the car in the next morning, and Elder cook took it to get looked at.. it also happened that Elder Patt's Orthopedic appointment for his arm was the same day, Predicament numero uno. We were in luck though, because the Office Elder's had free time to get us and take us to his appointment. After his appointment, we decided to have them drop us off at Jersey mikes for lunch.
this is where everything goes downhill reallllllll fast.
So as we were eating, enjoying our sandwiches and totally not watching the TVs playing the Dortmund vs Berlin game, or so i heard, because as i said, totally not watching it, ANYWAY, Elder Patt. asked for the phone to make a call or 2, and when i reached into my pocket, it wasnt there. There were many things going through my head, but the most prominent was : OH CRAP, ELDER PATTERSON IS GOING TO KILL ME.
We were in Riverside, without a phone or a car.... Predicaments numeros dos y tres. So we decided to walk to a members house to get a phone to call another set of elders to come get us. we probably walked 3 or 4 miles that day RIP. We did finally get to a phone, we tried about 3 members houses before we found one that was home. We had Elders Balls and Page get us. WE LOOKED EVERYWHERE. it wasnt there.... We looked in the OE's truck, because i thought initially that where i left it at. NOPE. Then we went back to Jersey mikes, because maybe i just didnt see it or i left it on the register counter or something. NOPE WASNT THERE. We had to go back and get our car, and i had to cough up 20 bucks for a new one. The worst part about losing it was the videos of old missionaries and the contacts on it. Elder Patterson didnt speak to me for a bit, And rightfully so, i dont blame him one bit. But dont worry, everything is ok between us!
On a happier note, we had one of our investigator get Baptized Yesterday! her name is Ernestina, and shes 68 years old! she is such a nice and sweet lady! it was such a great experience to see her progress, and come unto Christ!
Well thats all for this week, love you all!
