Week 010/102: 3 augustus e-mail van Elder Meads

Hello Everyone,
Another week in Washington down. This week has been really fast Mon-Wed, but super slow Thurs-Sun. We talked to a lot of unprepared people this week, that's for sure, but it's okay. The brutal rejection is actually not the worst thing in the world. It's the person that is super nice but not interested, so you end up talking to them for 15 minutes or so about God, but then they say no. Kind of an interesting perspective.

I have found that as the summer is cooling off, Washington has a mega ton of bunnies, squirrels, and chipmunks all running around, and they're very bold. I had one run up in front of me while biking and just sit on the trail. It was pretty interesting to see just how stupid they are. I also see a lot more people outside because the weather is cooling off, so I get to contact more which is cool. A lot of people offer me weed everyday, which I have never understood because weed has got to cost them quite a bit of money, and they just very openly offer it to me. People also yell out of their car windows at us. When someone yells out their window to me, it's one of two things: 1) it's an adoring member wishing us luck, or 2) it's some guy yelling the worst profanities you can imagine. It's not really offensive or hard to listen to these things. It just makes me wonder what makes them go out of their way to yell these things? Kind of weird. Maybe it's just a Washington thing.

I had some killer service this week! We split logs for some guy, and I found that I REALLY love splitting logs. It's like all the frustration I've ever had since the 1st grade just flows out of me into the logs. I split log after log in one swipe and it felt so incredible. However, I threw my back out pretty badly, and that didn't feel incredible. Still, I'm young, so all I needed to do was sleep once and it was all better.

Another bit of good service I did was I ripped a stump out of the ground. It's not as immediately gratifying as the log splitting was, but man was it a rush of satisfaction! Once the stump was ripped out with leverage from a 2x4 and a log, then we got to go into his house and rip up his carpet for dessert. He is remodeling. I do love me some demolition. I suppose that ripping a guy's carpet up falls into that category because I exposed his floor boards so fast he didn't have a chance to get the furniture off.

Okay, sorry this week isn't super eventful, I'll try to have more to share with you guys next week. Alright, thanks for listening and reading! Write me if you can, email me if you can't. There's no news on my VISA yet, but I feel pretty confident it will clear this week or next.
