April 18 mud, beetle, and a dog race

Well another good week, I found out that I'll be staying again with
Elder Geigenmiller! Good news since we get a lot of stuff done
together. He's a really nice guy and a good companion. Unfortunately
I'll be losing the car since they called another zone leader this
transfer but that's alright. It was a good run while it lasted and I
learned a lot. I'm glad I don't have to worry about so many other
responsibilities and can just focus on missionary work again. We had a
lot of successes this week, the biggest was probably bringing our
investigator Winston to church! We biked to his house and we all biked
to the church together which was a good time. Elder Jennings, the
other zone leader, also got our van stuck the other day during a
service project and it was literally inches from tipping over... hahah
I don't know why I ever let him drive but it's okay now i guess, a
huge 4000 kilo truck just happened to come by and help us out. the
first attempt broke our steel cable, but luckily they had a thick
chain that was able to get us out and save the church a whole lot of
tithing money. We also witnessed something pretty crazy coming home
from our last appointment on saturday night, where we saw a huge truck
upside down in a ditch! There was a huge crowd gathered in the middle
of the street and we saw that there was also a wrecked bike and a man
lying on the road, luckily his injuries weren't life threatening but
it was pretty scary to see the whole scene. On a unrelated note I had
a huge beetle fly literally into my eye and it freaked me out in the
middle of one of our lessons. the beetle fell to the ground and got
eaten by a toad though so I feel good knowing it got what it deserved.
I also raced a dog on my bike and won. he had me beat with
acceleration but my top speed was too much for him to handle. I hope
you all have a great week and I'll talk to you again soon!
Elder Carpenter
