Holy crap this week went by quick! This week was awesome! So last P-Day we went on this hike up flat top mountain in the snow and man was it awesome! With it being snowy we slid down the side of it to get back down and that was probably the sketchiest and craziest thing I've ever done! haha I'll try to get a video of it the next time we go!
On Tuesday we did exchanges with our zone leaders after district meeting and I went with elder Garver to his area! He's the funniest guy ever and from Provo! So we did lots of door knocking and well you never know what you are going to get when you knock on the door of a random house! One of the houses we knocked and this lady said to come in so we just cracked the door open and this lady was just distraught and sobbing. We asked her what was going on and if she needed any help and she was telling us that she has to murder her best friend and we were like Ohhhh no no no! Come to find out she was talking about her cat that was appearently dieing of liver failure! She kept asking us if God was going to forgive her and she kept saying she was going to go to heck and stuff like that so we kinda just gave her a card with our number on and got the heck out! We think she was on drugs because her house smelt kinda funky too!
On Wednesday we finished our exchange and it was awesome to be with elder Garver. Goes home in like a month in a half so he taught me lots of tricks of the trade! Haha we then went to help some other missionaries in our zone move a guy! We pretty much helped him all day so that was fun to do some service!
On Thursday we did lots of tracting in our area and got lots of doors to the face! It was just awesome! I'm not sure why but I love it! Haha and then towards the end of the day elder Bailey began to spend much time in the bathroom with good ole diarrhea! Haha he had a fever and no energy and the nurse came and look at him and said he had this flu type bug going around and told us we had to stay in the rest of the night and the day after so we basically just sat around the apartment all Friday! Good thing for ipads! I just watched a bunch of gospel videos while elder Bailey slept! It wasn't too much fun!
Saturday was pretty dang awesome! We did a distract tract in a little town called Girdwood and it is so cool there! The drive from anchorage to Girdwood is actually one of the top 5 most beautiful drives in the US! It was awesome! We got dropped of in a van to a road and basically knocked doors and talked to people! There were some guys we talked to that were doing stuff out front and they talked to us and then there were people that told us to get off their property so it was kinda crazy! Haha all you can do is just laugh! We did that for a little bit them went back to our areas and we did some tracting after! We actually some pretty awesome people! There was this one guy that hunts in Utah all the time and showed us all of his animals that he shot and invited us to come back! So that's way cool and then we met another guy that seemed really interested and was going somewhere and told us to come back! So we have some things rolling!
Sunday we got the just stupendous opportunity to speak in sacrament... And it was actually really good. I didn't feel nervous at all! I had explained our I'm related to Dottie and all the old lady's came up to me after and telling me how much they loved her and taking pictures of me to send to her so it was kinda funny! I met a sister bluemail and she grew up in Roosevelt Utah and she told me she knows my grandma and they grew up together! Small world!! It's crazy! I felt like today I got comfortable in the ward! We have transfer calls coming up this week on Thursday so we will see what happens!
This week was pretty dang awesome! Just know it's all true! I love you all sooo much and I think it so awesome that josh and kass got their mission calls! We are all right by eachother! Crazy!!
Love, Elder Fawson
