Thousands Down, Thousands Left

Dear family and friends, 


This week was a bit interesting... we had some unexpected duties that changed our schedules, but it was all fun. We were able to go to the temple for Elder Allen's last time, and that was a neatl experience. 
Guess what?! I SUCCESSFULLY DEFEATED A HUSHPUPPY SHOE! You'd think I'd be bummed out about that, but that represents a lot of work! I've also been wearing that pair of shoes every single day for the past 10 months, so that could be why too. Feels good! 

We've been getting some unusual rainfall the past several days. The weather might be changing. 


Our kitchen has a bad cockroach infestation, and we finally had enough of it. Allen actually spat one of of his chocolate drink haha. We bought moth balls and peppered that all over the cupboards, to no avail. We then bought two cans of cockroach killer spray, and that stuff worked like a charm. The only issue is that it kind of exterminated them out of their hiding spots, so cockroaches were literally everywhere. One night I woke up super early in the morning and flipped on the kitchen lights and sprayed probably a hundred. I think Allen and I have killed about 1000 now. My only motivation is the thought of killing them at a faster rate than they can reproduce. It's a game.




As you know, we've been working with a lot of people, a lot of good people. We even committed a family to baptism. Friday and Saturday were spent committing everyone to church Sunday, and it seemed as if many would. For one reason or another, NONE came Sunday. After sacrament meeting, Elder Allen and I had no class to teach or no class to really join, so we decided to leave and go visit less-actives and investigators that didn't come. I'll admit it's not the best thing to do during church, but you can imagine their surprise as two missionaries dropped a "hello" during church, expressing their concern for them and their families. I think that visit will stick in their minds. 











We're excited for what June will bring! 

Elder Allen and I work as if we're still young on mission.
 We get along great.






Have a wonderful week of school and work! Hope those of you who are sick (Mom and Jacob) feel better today. 

Love, 

Elder Nissinen
