Sooooooo sorry that I wasn't able send more stuff off last week.
This week has been a little bit crazy. So I received call last week/ week and a half and it was one of our A.P's. So side story, last transfer I kept having this feeling that someone in my family would get really hurt/pass away. Don't know why, it was just a feeling. So the A.P. called and said in a very official voice "is this Elder Ormsby?" So I know this A.P. and he usually isn't like that, so I say "You know it is, man you sound official, what did someone die?" He responds with "where are you right now?" We were in our stairwell going up to our apartment so I told him as much. He responds with "You might want to sit down"...what...what? Oh my goodness! So I am freaking out a little when he says "there are a lot of changes with the missionaries who are leaving next week and you are one of them, welcome to the office". Elder Speth, I am going to kill you! Haha.
Well, its not the worst thing that could happen. Actually the office is a little boring, but not too much. We are in a threesome right now, the one I will replace is still with us. There aren't enough computers for us to use all the time so sometimes I just sit and stare, then realize I should at least try and do something. So I read scriptures for a bit, daze then find random things to do. Dad was right though, the office can be exciting. Only the office elders, A.P.'s and the president have cars, and the senior couples.
Yesterday, on the way to lunch at a members house, we were T-boned. Lots of paperwork for the elder that was driving (my new comp Elder P). but every one is ok with no injuries and the person we hit has been fairly nice, so we will see (actually he hit us, but it was our fault).
Once the old office elder leaves I will be in charge of all visa papers, and a few other stuff. mostly an office elder is someone who takes care of all the treaba that happens in the mission. My phone is broken, call the office elders, I don't know where something is, call the office elders. Stuff like that.
E.T. means extra terrestrial mom, haven't you watched the movie? But really it means Emergency Transfer. It can be a bad thing, or an ok thing. Mine was an ok thing, no problems on my end, just needed to fill some holes. And yes, I am with my entire MTC district AWESOME!!! P-days in buc will be super cool, mainly because being in a two man city is hard cause you run out of things to do. I do miss the F family though. It was super hard to say goodbye to them this last week. It is going to happen every time I move cities unfortunately, but that means that I am making great friends for later on in life.
That is a really funny story about the ice storm, and the fact that you called your A.P.s "apes" priceless! I might have to try it out. I am going to wait til later on in the day to send out some pics of the office so everyone will be here and you can meet the B's they are awesome. Love you all and I keep you in my prayers.
Love Elder Ormsby
