No Power+Cold Showers=3 Dead Lizards

This has been kind of a funny week. For the first three days we had no power at all. It stunk because we had cold showers and we were living in the dark. It wasn't all bad though because we have a solar panel on our house, but it only has enough juice to power like three lights and one fan (deffinatly not a watter heater though). Anyway Elder Cobabe and I (my companion) were trying to figure out the problem so we were fiddleing aroung with our meter box outside our house. When we opened up the meter box we found three dead lizzards tangled up in all the wires, they were burned to a crisp. Bet you can't guess what we had for dinner that night. (haha jk). But all in all we fixed up the wires and got power going again. Ironicly as soon as we got power back on, watter got shut off.

    We met a pretty legit guy this week, his name is Ronnie, and he runs his own radio talk show in Lira. He's way cool, even came to church this week and loved it. The coolest thing too is that he's actually an old college friend with our branch president (Automatic fellowshipper). He's one of the most humble people I've met, can't wait to see what happens with him this transfer. Plus if he does join the church, it could be a really positive boost for the church, seeing as how he has a well known talk show on the radio.

    Got my camera this week, It's a pretty nice one. I'll be trying to send you guys pictures from now on.
