Ch 84 Bowlin Some Spice

This week was pretty fun.  I don't really have much to say. it's been the same but I guess I just wanna say that everything worth anything in life has a price. A home, a car, a job, a spouse, everything worth anything has a price. And a lot of times it's hard but it's absolutely worth it. As a missionary one thing that's particularly hard is finding. Finding is a lot of work. It's genuinely caring about people you don't know who don't care about you or your beliefs and smiling at them with the same optimism and hopes as a 6-year-old opening their Christmas presents. It's a lot of work. and a lot of trust and faith that it will bring any good. now, of course, there are better ways to find to make things easier and to find more people but it all requires that small and simple faith. You can work as long and as hard as you can but at the end of the day, you still need faith that it'll all work out. Personally, I get tired from finding and I get discouraged but this week we feel blessed that it's working out and we have people who are willing to be baptized and to get there. This also is true in other aspects of life. If you want a job or a good date for the evening you have to work for it. Or else you'll be spending your time with someone or preoccupied with something not worth your time. This week we tried some new things and it was good. I may not know y'all to much any more but I know that if you pay the price, you will deserve your reward.

Fun stories

This week we went bowling. Not for any reason. we just did it cuz it was fun. 

Another fun story. Elder Bjornn is a typical white guy from Idaho. This means he cannot handle his spicy. And whenever I cook I love to cook spicy. It's been a while since I actually cooked. but last night I cooked and oh it was spicy. Now the trick to convincing him to eat it was to threaten him with his manhood and to make sure he eats it in the dark so he can't avoid the peppers. and that's exactly what we did. we ate it outside in the rooftop and we ate sisig. Sisig, or at least the way I make it, has a 1:1 ratio of meat to pepper (roughly 3-5 different kinds of peppers). And in the dark when all of it looks exactly the same. Oh, I was ready to see him burn. He took about 2/3 of a pound of it and it was glorious.  Don't worry he recovered too (;
