Week 84

Another week down... Elder Ellingson's last full week of work! He heads to the mission home this Friday... weird. We had another good week. It was a happy week. We had fun in the work and some success too.

Unfortunately, we didn't have a huge turnout at church, from investigators nor from less-actives. Just one of those weeks. We still are feeling good about our 3 main families. We had some pretty spiritual lessons with them and they are doing some of the small things that are really going to help them come closer to the Lord and progress towards baptism.

I have come to love this area a lot. Ironic how you become fond of something that has been so difficult and a pain in the neck at times. I think we really don't get full satisfaction out of things if we aren't made to work for them. A lot of sweat, some blood, and maybe a few tears (figuratively speaking, cause I don't cry) makes for some cherished memories and people in this area.

Last Pday we played Gator Ball... oh man Im in so much trouble when it comes time to wrestle Ben. Even given a month to get myself into some sort of shape its gonna be humbling. Its ok though, when he gets home from his mission I'll wreck him just the same!

Not a lot to say about this week, but it was good and Im happy. I was talking with some other missionaries this week, and some talked about things that have happened to them or their families since they have been gone... I just wanted to end saying we are blessed. I hope we never cease to see that. Ive said it before and I'll say it again, I don't know what we did to deserve this osum family/life but Im very grateful for it. We have a lot to give back.

Much Love,
Elder Hruby

PS - Elder Hruby was just made an assistant to the Mission President! This means he will be going all over the mission to do trainings with other Zone Leaders. We are not surprised because he is such a stud, but we are so proud - We love our Elder Hruby!!!
