Surfyside Up

Hola y'all!

Greetings from icky sticky Myrtle/Surfside Beach. Humidity is unreal and everyone's so sick of even talking about it that I'm rolling my eyes as I write this. When it's not humid, it's raining. And a lot of the times you can't tell which is which. It's cool though because it's still hot even when it rains so after a while, you just see this steamy mist coming up from the ground. Spooky, it's like we're watching Twilight

I've actually managed to catch a cold in this weather as well. We come home after biking and we're just completely wet. That's not an exaggeration, our clothes are dripping. And apparently if you go inside to a nice air conditioned apartment while covered in water from all sorts of places, you catch a cold. I'm fine but that's just weird that that would happen.

Today for P-day we went to Ripley's Aquarium! It's not often we go and do the typical Myrtle Beach attractions. There's simply no room on our MSF cards for that. BUT the Myrtle Beach ward baptized someone last week and she works there and she got us in for free! It was packed but it was so cool. We went in one of those shark tunnels like you see on commercials. Ooh wee how fun 🌊🌊🐠🐟 I don't have any pictures but I might be able to get some next week to send.

The work this week has been really good, we teach a lot of cool members and we're working on finding investigators, an effort which I am sure we will be rewarded soon πŸ™πŸΏπŸ™πŸΏπŸ˜‡ Remember that each of us has divine potential! We don't have to be a prophet to be foreordained to do something great. Figure out what it is you and only you can offer the world in this life and find a way to unite that with the will of our Father in Heaven. It will probably take your whole life, so get to it!

Transfers are coming up and the gossip here is so juicy. A lot of missionaries have gone home, which is too bad but sometimes it's the right decision. There's a video on Mormon Channel of Holland giving his thoughts on the topic, plus a guy who was called to this mission (SCCM!) and went home early and his story. Well anyway it just means a lot of changes will be going about across the mission. So we here in Surfside set up a way to stay ahead of the game, the Speculation begins NOW! I have a picture of the speculation for our district the next two transfers and we're working on the whole Florence zone (possibly, we may give up before we turn into psychos). But here's a picture!

Anyway stay fresh yall and I don't know if it's raining wherever you are, but if it is, drive safe.
