Week 22: I'm All Alone!

Elder Farley and Elder Schow
Hi Mom!

It's definitely weird being EF1 now (or do I stay EF2? I don't know how the ranking system works;). Sounds like Sean's return home was a bit like the elder from the movie "The RM" haha. That's good that he got home safe and sound! I heard a lot of good things about his talk on Sunday, so that's good!

Your week sounds like it was very busy, but good at the same time. I think busy weeks are good because at the end of them you can look back and see what a difference you made in such a short amount of time! Maybe it feels like that more in missionary work, but I think the same reasoning applies! haha.

Seeing that picture of Sean and Tyler together is so crazy! It's just like other pictures of them, but they look older and more like men! It's weird that it's already been two years... But how is Sean adjusting? I would expect that the first week would be pretty crazy for him and a bit odd to get used to. Missionary life is so much different from normal life, you know? Although, Sean's mission seems to be a bit more lenient on the rules compared to mine. Nonetheless, it's a big change.

Esco is alright. We aren't seeing too much success, but we're keeping our heads up. We have found some pretty good potential this past week, but we just need to follow up and make something happen! No new investigators... It's weird, because I feel like we had at least 1 new investigator every week in Del Mar. Then again, Del Mar is huge compared to my area now. But I am healthy, and Spanish is going great! I am making good use of that book you got me!

The experiences this week aren't too significant, but they are funny. So apparently a flock of owls (I don't know what a group of owls are called... Probably not a herd either!) And they are super creepy! There is one in a tree right outside our apartment and it hoots at us all night! One flew right over my head a couple nights ago too! I feel like I'm in some sketchy woods when I hear them! haha. Also, the members struggle saying Farley for some reason, so I've been looking for an apodo (nickname) for a little while. I think one that's sticking pretty well is "Ferrari" haha. Another sister in church referred to me as the elder "mas guapo" as well haha. I really like the members out here! Also, I was able to get my suit today! That's about it for the stories though.

Elder Schow (from the MTC) is the Elder with me in the picture sis. Jacox sent you.

Thanks for all the support you give me! I love you and hope all goes well at home for you!

Love,
Elder Brian Farley
