Probably the rudest prank ever done to a missionary: So at our branch Christmas party on Friday we had a bunch of games to play and the last game was for the missionaries only. It's the one where there are cherries hidden in whip cream and you can only use your mouth to get them. There were three plates. One plate had 3 cherries, the next had 2, and the last had 1. We were told that it was a race of the Elders vs. the Sisters. Obviously this was an intense competition. So they say go and I completely scarf the first plate of cherries and take the lead. I eat the next two cherries as well, but I hadn't swallowed any at this point. I go to eat the last cherry and it is SIGNIFICANTLY harder than the other cherries...and it tasted rotten. I continue to chew, but it is seriously so bad. I keep eating it and then I gag a little bit. I hear Sister Cox say, "OH IT'S ROTTEN" and I realize what has happened. I take the plate into the kitchen and have to spit everything out and wash my mouth in the sink. THE YSA THAT WAS IN CHARGE OF ALL THE GAMES THOUGHT IT WOULD BE FUNNY TO PUT A PICKLED ONION INSTEAD OF A CHERRY AND WATCH US SUFFER. In case you're wondering. It wasn't funny and I literally almost threw up. I don't know if you've ever had a pickled onion, but I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy. Rude.

Yes, we are in the dark. [It gets dark by 3:30 in the afternoon and not light until after 8:30 in the morning.] It was really funny because this week the mission home sent everyone a little packet of Vitamin D that we are supposed to take every day. Also we teach a lot at night or have other meetings, so we are just wandering in the dark for hours on end. Most nights it's not too bad.

This week Sister Cox and I decided to go visit one of the members in the Branch. It took longer than anticipated and we ended up waiting a long time for a bus. After we waiting at a shopping center where we saw a little less active lady (and when I say little I seriously mean no more than 4 and a half feet tall). It was pouring rain and she told us that she had called for a taxi, but they couldn't be there for an hour. She said she was just waiting in the shopping center for someone she knew to come along to help her to get a taxi. So we took her groceries and helped her across the street to the taxi rink. So this week I literally helped an old lady cross the street. It was great to see God's hand in that. Clearly, we had to wait at that members home and wait on the bus, so that we could be in the right place at the right time to help this lady.
