Sooo I am back in Temple View Zone. That’s pretty weird. Get transferred out of that zone after being in it for 6 weeks just to come back literally 6 weeks later. I am now with Elder Furse (from Hurricane, Utah) who was my District Leader while I was in Temple View. So not only am I in the same zone, I’m in the same district and the same apartment complex (I’m just in the apartment literally downstairs). The other Elders that live with us are Elder Peterson and Elder Glouse (the assistants)
My address is:
2910 S. Greenfield Rd. #2015
Gilbert, AZ 85295
For the very first time, I am in a car area. Right in time for when it gets really hot. We cover the Gateway and Pecos Park ward. Gateway ward is pretty much just the houses over at the ASU campus and Pecos Park Ward is right next to Cooley Station ward (the ward I covered the last time I was in Temple View zone)
Thus far, this transfer has been chaotic. Thursday, we were told that the Elders that live in the third floor of the apartment had to move out because there was some mold in their apartment and the housing coordinators wanted them to get out as soon as possible. The original plan (what we were told) was that Elder Carrol and McStraw (zone leaders) would move to a house and that Elder Ramon and LeGrand (Elders that cover the area I covered the last time I was here, who are on bikes) to the apartment we live in and Elder Furse and I would move into the apartments with Elder McBride and Whitecar (since we have a car). So me and Elder Furse start packing all of our stuff (which sucks because I literally JUST finished unpacking everything) and then we’re told by the Housing Coordinators that me and Elder Furse are staying and that Elder Ramon and LeGrand will be moving with Elder McBride and Whitecar… soooo we just unpacked for nothing. But then wait? That doesn’t make sense. Elder Ramon and LeGrand are on bikes (and Elder Ramon is from Micronesia and Elder LeGrand is from France, so neither of them can legally drive, so they can’t get a car) and it is a 15 minute car drive from their new apartment to their area. How does that work? Well, the AP’s gave Elder Furse and I essentially unlimited miles so we could act as Taxi and give Elder Ramon and Elder LeGrand rides over to their area. As a result, it’s been killing a lot of time and we haven’t had that much time to work in our actual area.
Soooo things have been pretty hectic.
We’ve been getting lots of dust storms and one day of rain. The rain’s been nice, but of course the car looks absolutely horrible. Apparently Elder Furse was going to get the car washed on Wednesday night, but because we were too busy it didn’t happen. Good thing it didn’t happened because that would have really sucked.
Anyway, beyond that, there’s not really too much to report on. I appreciate the Birthday wishes and goodies! Love you all and hope you all have a great week!
