i had a couple funny thigns this week, at district meeting elder Ruttan and I were in charge of the salad, so because we are both canadian we decided to make a traditional canadian salad/side dish! APPLE SALAD! never heard of it? yeah cause we made it up, we just went to the store and bought a couple different types of apples and used a cheese grater to grate the apples up. we thought it was freaking hilarious, and one of the elders in the district lived in canada for like 8 years, so we had him in on the joke and when we brought the bowl of shredded apples out he was like "sweet! apple salad!" and thats all it took! everybody was all over it! they loved it, someone even asked is how to make it and we were like, you buy apples and shred them... it was probably alot funnier from our perspective! silly americans... and silly canadians too i guess!
um we have this storage cell thing, basically a small garage in the basement of our apartment. its called a cave, and its full of all kinds of beautiful treasures! like this week we went down there and brought up 5 massive grocery bags of clothes to sort through! turns out its all ladies clothes... awks, theres still about 3 times as many bags down there! also, we found this super sick rug down there! its like 3 meters long and like 2 wide! its huuuge. so we brought it up and i vacuumed it for about 5 hours and now its under our desks. hot move for sure! our apartment is alot warmer now actually!
lets see, for a semi spiritual note, we fixed a baptismal date with maurice and odile! they are the cutest old couple and they jsut want to follow the gospel as best as they can! so sweet! that was last night and they are so so so freaking killer! also, if you look in the bible dictionary under "moabite stone" youll find a little article talking about something... we went to the louvre and found the real moabite stone! so no biggie! but its kinda a big deal! also i saw the mona lisa and venus de milo or whatever that thing is! cool stuff! :p
much love from your favourite missionary-stud,
