Greetings From The Ohio


Sometimes on a mission time seems to go by super slow, but then when you look back at what has happened, it seems like it went so fast it almost didn't happen.  As I sit here at this library computer typing, it feels like I was just here sending last week's email.  Time is super weird.

This week us Ohioans have been under attack.  The poison ivy season is here.  I don't have it, but my companion does.  It doesn't look very fun.  I've been keeping an eye out for it this past week, and I'm pretty sure that I've seen it a few times.  It looks so innocent, but I know better...

This area is only a few miles away from my last area, but there is so much more diversity here.  While I've been here I've been working primarily with Costa Ricans, Colombians, and Ecuadorians, whereas in my last area almost all of the people were from Michoacan, Mexico.  Needless to say, when we found a family from Michoacan, Mexico this past week, I was super excited!  Good old Michoacan...

We found a lady from Mexico who was having a yard sale.  We talked to her for a bit, and she was super excited to meet with us again.  As we started leaving, she asked us if we wanted some watermelon.  We said yes, and she gave us each like a quarter of a watermelon.  It was crazy!

We found a ton of people this week, and all of them are super close to our house.  We're super excited to start teaching them all!

That's about all.  Sorry I don't have anything too interesting this week.  Hope all goes well in China Meadows!  Catch a moose for me!

Oh, I almost forgot.  I met my first person from Bolivia this week!  I'm only a few countries away from having met someone from every Spanish speaking country!
