7 Month Mark!!

Dear Family,

What's up everyone?! Hope everyone is doing well and hopefully you guys haven't had crazy weather like we are having. I have no clue where the storms are, since we can't watch the news, but you can tell they are around us..somewhere. It's been super dark today and now the sun came out it is SUPER humid...holy cow it sucks! Everything just sticks to you and you can literally feel the humidity, you can rub your fingers together and just feel's strange.

On Monday mornings we play volleyball with the bishops fun, crazy, out of control wife, and some of the mom's in our ward. We have the Council Bluffs zone leaders, young single adult elders, the Kanesville elders and sisters and then us and our sisters. Most of the elders have been given a nickname by the bishop's wife, the nickname is usually the first thing that comes to her mind when she first met us, then we are stuck with it. So just some of the names are...Elder Chappell is Church, Elder Linford is Lamb, Elder Tatafu is Hokie Pokie, Elder Stinikie is Steinmark, Elder Martinez is Elder Cortez and I'm Captain or Captin' Crunch. It's always funny because we just get our names yelled out the entire time we play volleyball. We usually play volleyball from 10am to 12:30 ish, and it's pretty fun!

So last week was kinda meh...the first couple of days nothing really happened at all. But on Wednesday we went on exchanges with the Bellevue Elders. I went there with Elder Jenkins and that kid is a goof! I'm one transfer older than him, which was really strange to think about when I was there, but he is just awesome! I Had a great time out there with him.

We found a new investigator in a strange way, we were walking from a gas station and this van just stopped in front of us with her flashers on. She said she was having car trouble and she had some brake problems. She got talking to us about her faith and everything and we are going back there on Tuesday, so hopefully that goes well.

Anyway, that's pretty much my week, all is going very well, there is a 50/50 chance I could transfer in 2 weeks, but we are pretty sure I will be here one more transfer....but just a heads up there.

Love you guys! Hope you all have a good week!:D

Love Elder Searle
