Hey guys!! Man have I got some stories for you this week!
Well to start off… Monday was pretty normal, same with the rest of the week except for Wednesday. One of our members started a taco truck and we decided to check it out and he made this burger that was super good! We totally want to go back and try some tacos though! Okay, on Friday we had the zone leaders come to our district meeting and it went good! Afterwards we decided we were all pretty starving and decided to go to this bbq place that's in the town where we live and we got probably over 10 pounds of different meats and met back at the chapel to pig out! (That's what one of the pictures is hah.) Then that night we played volleyball which is always fun but for the third week in a row we lost! After that we had an exchange with the other elders in our district and the next day is where it got pretty funny hahah… We woke up and had a member we had to visit at 2pm and our man Deroy knows him so we called him up and we're just like hey, want to come to lunch and visit this member? He asked when and we said Noon would be awesome! So we got ready and were a little early and there's a Goodwill over by the place we were going to eat and I just thought what the heck we got time! As we passed this gas station to go to the parking lot of the Goodwill there were like a butt ton of Corvettes! We started freaking out and then we parked and took a few pictures but right after we got there they started to drive off! So of course we had to get a video of that and then we went to eat afterwards. Later on that day we talked about a few things we could do with the free time we had until our next appointment… the suggestion came up of reenacting a passage from the Book of Mormon. Getting some pvc pipe and some dollar tree pool noodles and making some larping swords, but as awesome as that sounded we just ended up going to the appointment early hahah. As we were heading that way I saw this car… now Houston, College Station and Sealy are filled with these cars. I needed a picture to show that this is what people drive! So I took the picture thinking no one was in the car but, there was this guy in the driver seat I didn't see and he saw me take the picture… I was a little freaked out afterwards not going to lie hahah.
Okay, so where I'm at in Texas, there's a lot of dollar stores but there's only 2 that everything's actually a dollar. We stopped by this one that I've never been to before called Dollar General and it was kind of different but we all got a Mexican Coke and a few other things and then said we have to take a picture with it! hahah We had Deroy sitting in the back seat and we told him to get in the picture but when he did it just looked super funny! "Yeah we were taking pictures when we realized some big brown man was in our back seat" hahah Then we went to this seafood steakhouse place where our appointment was located, in Eagle Lake. It seriously was the best burger I've had on my mission by far… it was crazy! And it was super cheap too!
Over all my weeks been really good :) I gave a talk yesterday about missionary work (in Spanish of course) and how everyone is a missionary. It's something that I've really gained a testimony about. Thanks for checking in guys, hope I didn't talk too much!! hahaLove- Elder Tidwell
