Getting dirty on the ride to San Jose

Tuesday, March 1, 2005

Tuesdays are really crazy days. We left the house this morning at 6:30 to go to San Jose. We were hoping to get some things done there early and so we left earlier than usual. The jeepney we rode today had a trike on the top so we weren’t able to ride on the top but we had to just hold onto the back the whole hour trip into San Jose. It was hard and really, really dirty. My pants and nice shiny shoes were all covered in dust by the time we got to San Jose. In District Meeting I taught both the attributes and skills lesson. For the attributes we read and discussed Pres Benson’s talk on pride. That is one topic that I’ve been reflecting on lately and thinking about how I can become a more humble person. For the skills lesson, I talked about how to benefit more from the personal study of The Book of Mormon. I think that both lessons went well and that it was helpful.

This is how we got our clothes washed. An endowed sister from the ward came every week and washed them for us.

When we did email today, I downloaded a firmware update for my camera so that it will save on the larger memory cards that I have. My family is doing well even though the refrigerator broke and they are still dealing with Joseph’s sickness.
