I'm staying. Elder Black is going. And my new companion is Elder Siler. Elder Siler will be the district leader as well.
This past week has been the most unusual week. Elder Black went in for surgery on Thursday morning on his hand. They removed a cyst and repaired a torn ligament and took out some bone fragments. His injury happened like 3 months ago, but they finally took care of it. He got knocked out completely and had major surgery. He was loopy for a bit, and he (we) had to stay inside for the next 2 days.... but that night we went to see the Lamb of God. It was amazing. Too bad you guys couldn't see it. Though there is still one performance happening in Boulder. Hopefully I will be able to see it again. I will have to find another non-member to come again.
Those two days were pretty relaxing and boring.
Sean. He liked the performance. Before that he said that he wouldn't be becoming a mormon because we are "too good". He said he is going to become a JW instead. We met with him a couple days later and he said he had met with the JWs and he doesn't want to join them either. He still wants to come to church and meet with us though. I don't know what will happen.
We were able to finally talk to this guy Jay that we found a month ago and we had an awesome lesson with him. He's got a lot of potential. We invited him to read the Book of Mormon and he said he wanted a week or two to do so. So we will see him in a couple weeks and see how he is doing.
Excited for General Conference. Have a great week.
Also last Monday after emailing we went on a hike. And it was very bad and pretty cool. We drove an hour into the Rockies, then started hiking. The hike started out with marginal amounts of snow (which got our California Elder stuck driving up there for about 30 min) and ended up 2-3 feet. It had a hard crust so we could walk on top of it 60% of the time, otherwise we fell in to our knees. We didn't make it to where we wanted to go. Great sights though. And we went sledding on our butts. ;)
We also worked on a farm.
