I can't believe how time has flown! I'm now staring at just three weeks left on the calendar. Super crazy. I still feel like I just got here. It's going to be bittersweet for sure getting on that plane, though i'm very excited to see friends and family again.
Before I continue, thank you so much to Grandma Jeri for the two letters and updates about Aunt Sherrie. It's very appreciated.
Things here have been very good here in Corpus despite difficulty in the work. Not having very many people open up to us, but we are still working hard and giving it our best effort. We know there will be someone that shows up here fairly soon.
We did have two very fun p-days where the first we went to the aquarium downtown and fed some stingrays and stuff. The second one was probably the most fun p-day of the mission so far. We started off by getting a tour of the Naval Air Base from one of the ward members that works there. He does instruction for the pilots and let us try this spinning chair that helps pilots who suffer from air sickness bodies adapt to the motion. We all started out doing pretty well until he had us do different head tilts and eye focuses. Needless to say, we all got pretty good motion sickness for a little bit, but luckily no one threw up. It was super cool.
After that we went over to the aquarium for their one dollar only day and met up with the missionaries in Sinton zone. So I got to spend some time with Elder Rosaschi again and watch a couple of the aquarium shows with their dolphins.
Then we spent the rest of the day on the beach (don't worry no one went swimming) playing soccer and hand-ball (basically ultimate frisbee, but with a soccer ball and nets instead) on the sand. It was so much fun and everyone really enjoyed it. I think everyone who participated was wiped out after running so hard in the sand for hours. It was also a very cool location with the U.S.S Lexington just down the way from us.
Well that's about all for this week. I will keep doing the best I can until I have to step on that plane. It's been a huge honor to be able to serve the Lord during these past two years. I've grown in incredible ways. I'm grateful that there is still a little bit of time.
Have a wonderful week everyone!
