Sister Cusick, Elder Terry & President Cusick
which is supposed to be the best ward in the mission! My companion is
Elder Marsden from Idaho Falls? I think? He is short like me so that
is fantastic! :) I'm in an apartment with two other Elders, Elder
Gross from Canada and Elder Booth from somewhere I don't remember! :)
When we first got to our apartments there is one of the guys we teach
that was standing outside and we talked to him for a minute.. We'll
like 30 minutes later, he rolls on in to our apartment and he's got a
couple bags of alcohol! Elder Marsdem redirected him out and said we
would follow him to his house and talk to him because we can't have
alcohol in the apartment of The Lord, right?! :) So we go to his
house, he drinking and smoking and just giving the new guy a lovely
welcome to Florida! Elder Marsden said that last week Ryan was really
improving. Not drinking nearly as much, and trying to change.. But he
had talked to his dad and got Anti-Mormoned! Soo we don't know where
that will end up going... Not good probably. :/
I'm not going to be that in depth about everything, I just had to
share that story because it was my first real Florida experience! But
after all that we started going around talking to some other
investigators and less-actives and such and they are all really great
people! I'm terrible at names and stuff so you can only imagine how
the first Sunday was, right? My mind was runnin 100 mph trying to put
all these names into my memory... Didn't go so well! But I did learn
that they are in fact an amazing ward!
A little piece of info for you all, Florida is hot and humid. 104
degrees plus humidity equals go back in the apartment and chill!!
Right? Haha I wish :) luckily we are on car share! Oh wait.. We are
now full bike.. Haha Missionary Life! The struggle is real!
So far I'm just loving it though! Life is going good! No problems have
been brought up yet! So hopefully everything continues to go well! :)
I only have one picture to share since I'm on my iPad but it's a
picture of a guy that Elder Gross was name to draw on my blanket :)
