Las Venturas de Elder Rojo: Capitulo 54
Buenos dias familia! Disculpme porque probablamente no van a recibir ningunas fotos hoy. Es que deje mi camara en un otra area cuando hicimos cambios con estos Elderes. Entonces trate de mandar algunas con la camara de Elder Gibson, no se que pasa solo que la computadora no la reconoce! Y por esto no tengo fotos para mandar hoy, pero la semana que viene voy a recordar! Les prometo!
Oh man it was a crazy week! As I mentioned in the last email, we were in Steamboat Springs last p-day. After going to a district meeting up there. Then after District meeting we did a baptismal interview, emailed ate lunch, then we had just enough time to play soccer for a little bit. Then we drove to Craig to do exchanges there, slept both nights there trying to help the Elders save their miles, then had one night in my area before I did exchanges with the Carbondale Elders on Thursday. So yeah it was a crazy busy week, with a lot of driving.
So let me tell you about something that I am super excited about! I may have mentioned it last week I recall talking about super secret stuff but I'll tell you a little but more. So the Colorado Denver South Mission is one of four missions in the world to be pilot testing the church's new pilot program called just serve! It's basically a website that allows nonprofit organizations to post service opportunities, we then allow the missionaries to look up projects near them. We're authorized to do 4-10 hours of service a week. We are all really excited about the program. Other areas where it's been piloted have seen huge success for their missionaries!
So on Thursday I went on exchanges to Elder Rollins' greenie area of Carbondale/Aspen. That night I called him to talk about the people I'd met whom he'd baptized and stuff like that. I was excited to talk to him about it. Our conversation went something like this
Elder Rollins: Hello this is Elder Rollins
Elder Redd: Hey Chocarroles it's Rojo (those are our nicknames for each other)
Rollins: Don't even say it!
Redd: Don't even say what?
Rollins: You know what day it is!
Redd: I honestly have no idea what you're talking about, I've been super busy.
Rollins: It's our year mark today!
Redd: ... ... ...
Rollins: Rojo are you there?
Redd: My mind just exploded.
We spent several minutes talking about it and realizing how short that year has seemed. I still feel like I've only been out for 2 months. It's been so weird to think back to last year and the MTC I'm pretty much going crazy because time has ceased to function in it's normal manner.
Well, I love you all and oh yeah the pictures yes that is a snake on my hand.
Con mucho amor,
