This week was interesting, not the least because it was transfer week, and that always throws us for a loop as we try to plan for what we need to do the next week without knowing whether one or both of us are staying. On that note, I am staying in Nampa, and Elder Gibson is headed to Kuna. My new companion is named Elder Richardson, coming from Caldwell. I don't know too much about him, except that he didn't get along with Elder Myers in the MTC, and that everybody else seems to like him a lot. So, we will just have to wait and see what happens between the two of us, and hope for the best.
Some of the lessons that we had this week were a little strange; yesterday, for example, we went and taught Michael. Or at least tried to. He was in a very stubborn mood, and was insistent on "finishing his homework," which included reading a lot of musical scores. He really didn't want to listen, so we taught what we could, and left a section to read. It can be hard to work with kids... regardless of the number of their chromosomes.
Another interesting one was actually really good, just interesting. We taught a lady named Rosa the first little bit of the Restoration, along with her family. She seems very interested in learning more, and her youngest son seems curious as well. We are having a harder time getting the older son interested, so we are going to use one of the suggestions from the Bishop, and see if we can't get some of the teacher and deacon aged guys to play some basketball. The Bishop is hoping that we can get Louis interested in the High Adventure camp, because, well, high adventure stuff is cool! He feels that if Louis goes to the High Adventure, he will want to go on some of the other camps, which will be great timing with Zion's Camp coming up. We will do what we can, see what happens.
Well, that just about covers it for this week. I hope that you are having an amazing life, whether boring or painful.
Love and Insanity, Elder Stuver
