My companion is Sister Gattud, she is from the Philippines and is actually a temple square missionary! They get 3 months of being in another mission to get the full proselyting experience and this is where she got sent! She is awesome! I'm running out of time so I will tell you more about that next week!
Funny moment from my last week in Sparta: We were going down stairs along the side of a very steep driveway whilst delivering packets. It was dark and most of the ground was covered with a dense layer of leaves. I decided to have fun and bound down the stairs which would have been great were it not for the leaf covered rock at the bottom of the stairs. Landed right on it, my ankle gave right out (no real damage done), and I very gracefully ate it. I guess some of my soccer skills of hitting the ground hard without injuring myself have stuck with me haha because it could have gone far worse than it did! According to S. Godfrey I didn't flash the world which is pretty impressive for face planting in a skirt if I do say so myself! I layed on the ground for a bit just to make sure everything was working properly and also because I was laughing too hard to get up! Good times :) My companions could probably write a book of all my dumb/clumsy moments!
The apartment we moved into belonged to elders before and it was disgusting! I will send a video to show what I'm talking about, but don't worry, we got it livable.
Love you all!
