Things are Awesome!! 28 August 2010

Well things like usual were really crazy this week. Alright lets start with Sunday of last week, we had 14 investigators in church. It's super crazy how every thing is going because we work for like 3 to 4 hours in the field every day. We don't have much time, but we are killing it and should have a ton of baptisms this change. These days I am finding people just have the weirdest doubts and problems, like one lady past a ton of time and didn't want to get baptized but when we sat down to talk and figure out why, she said it was because she has always had the dream to learn how to be a belly dancer and if she got baptized she wouldn't be able to do that. Also this other girl stalled for like 3 weeks and didn't get baptized cause she wanted to get baptized in a river and not in a font. It's crazy if the investigators talk the whole lesson and us as missionaries just talk a little it is just far better,the spirit is so strong and we can figure out what peoples problems are much faster. That is what I have been learning about teaching these days. oh

On Sunday night we went to the Mission Presidents house to eat dinner. It was fun. I played the guitar for him it was kinda awkward, but cool.

Staying in the office is awesome. The mission finance secretary, the 2 Asst. to the Presidents, the secretary that is training me a sick kid and me all live together in this huge 2 story house that has one shower with warm water. Woo Hoo!!!!! And it has air conditioning in the room that we sleep. We don't have any people that make us food so we just eat out all the time. In other words I am going to get fat real fast here. But its fun.

Wednesday morning at 5:00am we got up to go play soccer. It was a lot of fun but I have really bad news. My soccer shoes soles fell off so I am going to take them to a guy to see if he can sew them back together or glue or magic or something. If he can't I will have to buy new soccer shoes. Sorry.

Oh other news here in the mission, we have 2 cars, a truck and a small suv. The small suv is a manual. I am one of 3 people in the whole mission who have permission from the Pres. to drive a car. It is crazy driving here. It's like driving in Malaysia or basically like I am driving in the formula one race, plus the streets are just straight crap. It is really sucky, oh well.

So on an average day, we get to the office at 8am and work here till 5:00pm then we go to work in the field. It is pretty different from what we did before.

Well I think that is all. Things here are awesome!!!!
Love, Elder Bloomfield

Elder Mendez is in the white next to Kyle, he is doing the baptizing. He is the AP from Costa Rica and Elder Sanders on the right is the AP from Calif.. Not sure who the two elders in front are, or who is getting baptized.
