October 1, 2012

Hey everybody.

This week was more or less a normal week for us, again. We did see one of our investigators who hasn't been visited since before I got here. He's going to take some work, but before he was being taught he was addicted to several drugs. Now he's narrowed it down to just smoking cigarettes. He does smoke a bunch still, but he's working on it.

We also got a referral who was a self referral from online. In other words, he went online and requested for missionaries to come visit him. I, however, was on exchanges and so wasn't there to meet him. We will be going by this coming week, and I will be able to get to know him then.

All in all, we are still biking a bunch. We don't go very far a whole lot, mainly because going far also means going up. And on a bike, up is no fun. Yeah, the downhill part is awesome and fun, but the uphill part is so long and exhausting that the downhill part really isn't worth it. Not to mention the heat. It's the first of October and it's over 100 today. I much more liked it when I was in Canyon Country and it was not too hot during the day. We could bike up hill and not be sweating buckets. I have noticed so far that I am getting back into biking shape. We biked up one of our big hills a few weeks ago and I was dead tired after it. We just did it again yesterday, and it wasn't so bad. Still in heat though, possibly hotter than the first time we did it, as it is not getting colder yet. We've been told that it will still be hot for almost another month, and then cool off.

Not cool.
