July 21st, 2014

Hello! Everything is going well. Not really. I'll tell you a couple stories.
We made friends with some of the local "gangsters" in town. (Elder Frost's family are Crips and he knows wannabe gangsters when he see's them) They think we're cool and they wave at us all the time so that's good. One drunk native kid said he was going to shoot us and we told him we were helping his friend so he decided to be friends with us haha. Then he asked my companion ," Who's this guy?" ('cause I'm white) and he told him I was in the army. After that he said,"That's what's up!" And then we were cool. Told you the tags worked. I actually got a lot of respect from most of the natives because I served in the Army before ha.

Elder Frost and I were kinda disappointed we haven't had any violent encounters with the drunks ha. We thought they were going to jump us and then it would give us the opportunity to break some knee caps and elbows hehehe. Elder Frost said that if anyone jumps us, Everyone gets a broken knee cap! The way you do that is with a Heel Hook (hook the foot in the pit of your elbow and twist. It doesn't take much.) But everyone seems to like me so there hasn't been any problems. And don't worry, I know a thing or two from training. Elder Frost says I can hold my own in a street fight. If you see a newspaper article about a bunch of dudes trying to jump the missionaries with broken kneecaps and broken elbows, it's probably us haha.

But, I am no longer going to be in WolfPoint, which I am sad about. I've only been her 11 days and they are sending me to Billings in West Parks ward. I am very sad because I love the people here, and I love Elder Frost. He's a great guy. We were gonna get some boxing gloves and box every morning! Kind of a bummer. I don't think I'll have another companion that will want to box with me again. Or wrestle for that matter.

I am going to Billings because I haven't had my wisdom teeth taken out yet. So I am being sent where I can get the surgery and recover properly. I'll be having the operation on Friday morning at 0700. It's not all bad, because I know who my new companion is and he's a nice guy. Everyone is jealous of me because I get to be Elder Organ's companion. So I'm kind of stoked to be getting him. I just wish I could get another sparring partner. I really hope I can come back to WolfPoint.

The other day I made some ginger beer. It's the best brew I've ever made! It has the right amount of sweetness with the right kick to it. I'm pretty sure it's just perfect and it gives me a warm fuzzy feeling in my tummy mmmmmmmm. I have once again claimed another victim to ginger beer when I shared a bottle of Bundaberg with Elder Frost. haha

Also made some biscuits that Emily gave me the recipe for. Thanks! They were wonderful! I'm going to double it next time and make some bigger ones that will last me longer.

Hope everything is going well! Have a great and blessed day!
