Not much happened this week. Namuun got called to Twin Falls, which means she’ll go to Idaho before I ever will. This week is Tsagaan Sar and I’m hanging out at my old apartment with Bayrtsetseg and her companion Otgonbileg. Eventually I’ll get a new companion I hope! It’s kind of weird managing the area totally alone but c’est la missionarie vie :)
Today I’ve been appreciating the talk “Yielding Your Heart to the Lord” Look it up!
Today I have a whole pday where I don’t have to teach English for the first and probably only time all school year.
Btsetseg: What should we do?
Me: I don’t know but it has to be something REALLY COOL. Maybe like find a cool museum or something?
Bt: Ew. Museums aren’t cool. They’re so boring! We should go shopping!
Me: (mocking her in the same tone of voice she used) The mall is definitely not cool. It’s so boring.
Otgonbilig: I know! We should go play sports!
Me: *sighhhhhhhhhhhhh* I’m way too nerdy for this apartment. *no one understands what I said*
So we’re going to go play basketball, but at least it’s not the mall.
The following concerns the date Shanti will return home from her mission:
“I think there should be a transfer date right in the middle of December—the 8th or 15th. I will work on it. But, I do not think you will go home early November. That is too early. I hope that helps.”—President Bensen
So I’ll be home for Christmas!
