September 20, 2010

The BYU & FSU football game was a lot of fun. One of the BYU alumni is in our stake so he got us volunteer jobs at the BYU tailgate party. We sold merchandise, set up, handled the registration, and I got to paint faces. I painted like 30 faces. I painted face for like 3 hours. I loved it, but was so over painting faces. After the party, we ( Grampp, Tuaone, and me) were the last to leave, because our line from painting was so long. It was really a lot of fun. We walk a mile to the game, because the tailgate was at the Civics Center and it was like 7 dollars to ride the shuttle. It was 95 degrees which is way hotter then 110 in Arizona. I had a good time with Sister Tuaone. We get along really well. Tuaone is training and her comp, Sister H, got lost the other day when they were on campus. They were on there way to a teaching appointment and Sister H took off way head, but didn't know where she was going. When Tuaone got to the appointment Sister H was nowhere to be found. Tuaone called the district leader and had like 6 elders looking for her. They eventually found her, but one of the basic rules is always be in sight and sound. I love hanging out with Tauona. When we got to the game, Sister Grampp was about to die. We missed kick off, but only missed the first couple of minutes of the game. Sister Grampp by the time we got to our seats, was about to pass out. We got her a bunch of bottled waters, other then that, I got to hang out with all the Sisters and several of the Elders that have become my friends. It was so weird to be normal for a day. It was weird to blend into the crowd, it was really a lot of fun. We sat in the BYU section and watched them get their trashed kick, but I had a good time. The FSU stadium is pretty cool and they have a really cool cheer. I have quickly come to learn that in the south there are only three important things: God, Guns, and football! The tailgate parties and the enthusiasm for the game was a pretty cool sight to see.
I do have to say the best day of the week for me was Saturday, we went on splits ALL day long. It was Sister Hernandez, Tuaone, and me. We went and did service at the place we chopped down the tree. we worked our butts off doing service from 7:30 am to 4 pm, and the rest of the day was spent in appointment. it was such a good day.
I want you to keep Sister Richan in your prayers. She got sent home yesterday, she has a tumor on the back of her leg. It has grown rapidly the last 2 months and has gotten hard. she had to go home and have surgery, all the test so far have shown that it is not cancerous, but they won't be a 100% until it is removed. It is wrapped around some delicate nerves and veins ( I think). All I know is that if the surgery doesn't go well, she could lose a lot of function in her leg. If it does go well, then she will be back out here in 10 to 14 days. its a bummer, because it was like having my sister go home.
We'll I have to go. I love you!!!!
