Exterminator = most of them dead!

Beck Family!

Pretty average week.

Since when would you believe that? Not, it was crazy and awesome. So im gonna get started here. We celebrated elder C b-day this last week. I threw him a suprise b-day party. I had called up various ward members and given them assignments of stuff to bring and told them all where to meet up at. Then after ward correlation, we went to the partk, everything was already there waiting for us, elder C was actually suprised, and it was legit. I did all of the planning when we were on exchanges, or else it would be pretty hard to throw a suprise party for someone that you are constantly with. And we smashed his face into the cake, pictures to come of that great moment.

This last week we also did a big service project at a methodist church. The church really wants us to be doing more service, to be getting out into the community and doing more stuff like that. Adn this was a cool opportunity we had to do that. We broke down furniture, sweeped and mopped and cleaned their 'sunday school,' And we destroyed lots of stuff to fit it into the dumpsters. It was a methodist church, but definitly it is mostly and islander church, all of the church members there that were helping us were tongan and samoan. And those people are so big and so strong, its just intimidating. Then they fed us lunch, cause islanders, like mexicans, dont get together for any reason and not have food. I literally saw a tongan eat an entire pizza in minutes, and it didnt even slow him down. this guy probably weighed over 330 pounds of just man. big human. Really fun, fun to do service and to get together with the whole zone.

Also, incase i havent mentioned it, our apartment is infested with roached, like pretty dang bad. Everytime you turn on the lights when we come in at night you just see them start to scurry and try to hide. They are everywhere in the kitchen and bathroom, and then they made their way into our dresser. So when they started nesting in my running clothes, that is when i had to put my foot down and say something had to change. We had an exterminator come in on friday and poison and fumigate our apartment. It worked. I know it worked cause when we came back to our apartment that night we saw dozens, literally dozens of dead big o'l roaches all over the floors and counters, the poison is supposodley gonnna kill them for the next 3 months. Hey, thats long enough for me. But now hopefully we are the only living things in our apartment. WE had to  empty our cubbords and put all our food in bags, but now, there are no more. Except i did kill one in the shower this morning. For real, nothing freaks me out more than seeing a roach mid shower, cause i feel like its really hard to run away, so you just have to hold your ground, stop screaming like a girl, and kill that little varmint with whatever you can get your hands on. In the case of this morning, i ended up using my comps shampoo bottle. He has no idea that i killed a roach with it this morning, and im not gonna tell him. Its sometimes better when we dont know.

Anways, thanks for everything family, love you all so much, take care.

Beck out,
Elder Beck
