October 17, 2016 Transfers and Michael's Baptism

I am staying in St. John's!!!!

To all of you people's Kenny is doing great, his truck is breaking down so he couldn't make it to church on Sunday he lives over 15 miles out of town. we had another baptism this week his name is Michael. He is an awesome hippy dude. He said "man he's a cool cat." Or he says "hey little brother, bring it in" when he talks to me he calls me little brother and always gives me a hug after the lessons!!! He got baptized this week. And confirmed Sunday!!

All of y'all who think Doberman's are these lovely nice cute doggies can think again and eat dirt!! I was hauling down this one street on my bike and this dog came up and was running along side me well I am nice and good natured so I was like hey he likes me. "Good doggy good doggy" I said and as I was talking to him he started barking and growling loudly and he went for my leg with his teeth and I peddled a little faster so his teeth sank through my pants and I felt his teeth touch my skin and felt and heard the ripping of my.......pants!!!! Hahahha he only got my pants and not my leg but his teeth grazed my leg. You can imagine what happened after that!!!! I screamed SHOOT!!!!! And kicked my bike into gear 3 and 7 the highest gears on the bike and hauled butt down the road thinking "there ain't no way this stupid dog gonna bite me." I flew past my companion who was in front of me and he looked back saw the dog and was like uh oh!! So we both went flying down the street. And lost the dog that was a fiend!!! I'll write some poetry on the dog and send it next week.

So transfer news was yesterday I found out that I am staying in my area. so by the end of this transfer I will have been in Saint John's for 6 months.

Guess what?! We got a truck for 2 days out of the week. We don't have to bike in our 480+ sq. miles area if this miracle didn't occur we would never touch as much as we could with a car. The truck sucks though. It is a Nissan Frontier. But still we gots a truck.

Well I don't have much to say other than I got hurt on me leg. A 1000 pound tire one of the ones the earth movers use. the tire was 7 feet tall an 29  inches wide and it fell on my legs and had me trapped. I sat with my legs smashed under the tire for like 1 minute before I called for help there were only 2 people there doing service. A member and my comp. my comp is a big boy and he has what me and him call fat guy strength. They came running over tripping over tires and falling and got to me as fast as they could. They lifted it up a quarter of an inch and I slid my right leg out. Then they put it back down on my left leg that was still stuck.  then tried over and over to pick it back up so he ran to the truck and grabbed a shovel they dug where my leg was and I pulled really hard when they picked up the tire with all they had an only could lift the tire half an inch off the ground enough for me to slide my leg out. I was free. My leg is fine I had a limp for a few days and it is doing fine now.

Well love y'all talk toya later
