Mission Blog: Birthday time singing and sharing included Elders ...Tilley, Rainbolt, ...had their anniversaries (or their companions) sometime over the past few months or in the month to come.
I am not sure when we will be able to find a new house though. President and Sister Walton went to look at two this week but they were not going to work out, so I am not sure when we will be able to move. Last night Sister Walton said we are going to find you a house this week, right President Walton? And he kind of shrugged it off like they would definitely try, but it is not going to happen within a week. So we will see how it goes. It is pretty cool though because I can now say that I can live for a extended period of time with out energy. Definitely pretty good life skill. Also I am getting really good at going to the bathroom in the dark! Well at least I think I am... I guess I do not really know:) (Hey mom maybe you should not put that one on the blog:)) (We left it and decided he would never knowJ).
Ok so if we can Skype at 9:30 PM (My time) on Sunday that would work out perfectly. I am not allowed to get on my email to see if that is ok so that is what we are going to have to do. So that is when I will be on. Sunday 9:30 PM my time.
I love you all and hope you have a great week. The Lord has definitely been blessing me and helping me!! Thank you so much for your Love support and Prayers!!!! Elder Tilley
Love you all signing off!!!
Talk with you on Sunday!!!!!!
(Note from Mom)
President Walton ended up picking up Elder Tilley and his companion and bringing them to his home to shower and “face time” us. It was so fun to see him. I asked if he had mosquito bites on his face (red dots we could see), but he said it was from shaving (they hadn’t showered/shaved for a week) J. He said they found a milk carton and cut off the top and found water dripping out of a pipe off the top of a building and that’s how they had been collecting water. He said they buy milk and cereal every morning at a cantina outside their front door for breakfast, but the milk won’t keep without “energy” (that’s what everyone says when there is no power). For lunch the eat rice and beans and if they want dinner they have rice and beans again, but he said they are tired and it’s too much trouble to fix dinner. Once they went to a member’s home for dinner and he was served a whole boiled fish…still wholeJ. On Mother’s Day he had been in Africa for 3 weeks and lost 10lbs. Even through all this, he was happy and sounded just like his self. We can’t wait for our CHRISTMAS call! J
