This week was a little slow for me, only because my cold got worse. (I’ve had a cold for over a week now and it has really been annoying.) It actually got so bad that I was told to stay inside for a couple days so I could get better. That made life boring and was very disappointing. It wasn't all bad, though. I got a lot of reading done in the scriptures and Jesus the Christ. I'm glad that I started reading Jesus the Christ again after about 20 months of my last reading of it. It's really interesting and so inspiring.

The APs worked with us on Friday, so it was fun hanging out with Elders Palmer and Dadizon. I am presently working in Elder Dadizon's old area, so we went to the Galang Family's house at the end of our work day for dinner and played Uno. I hadn't played Uno in years. It's actually pretty fun.
Well, I'm pretty sure that's it for this week. Sadly, it’s not much. Sometimes mission life has its challenging weeks. This was one of those, for me. Anyway, Dad, happy birthday. I hope you have fun partying this week. Oh, and Dad, I was blown away that my friend Elder Yu is serving in the Nevada Las Vegas Mission and that you got to meet him. That’s amazing. What a small world. (He’s from Australia and we used to hang out in the dorms at Helaman Halls. Great guy.) Please tell Elder Yu I said hello. I am glad to hear that Beckham had a fun birthday and that Kambria will have her baby soon. I left on my mission as a brand new uncle when Beckham was a month old and will return as an uncle of four. That is awesome. Okay, that should do it. I hope that everyone has a great week! Love you all and please stay safe.
