I'm in Flagstaff Arizona. I live at a member's home. There is only my companion and me. We drive a car. The area is great. It's been snowing most of the time I've been here, so it hasn't been that hot. It's a lot different then home. There is like no rain, only snow and sun. There are a lot of members; we cover two wards. Both wards have about half the amount of people that our ward has, so over all the same amount of people I think. My companion is Elder Munns; he's from Utah. He will be my trainer for next 12 weeks.
There are a lot of people: one of them Brother Yazzie who makes jewelry Navajo style and he's really good. He's making my companion a bracelet watch. There is this store call "Anasazi Traders" and they give us 75% off retail and we get to go in the back and look at stuff (it's really cheap). There's a CTR ring in Navajo that I might get sometime; it looks really cool.
The CTR ring was Y E O and it was a mystery what it actually meant, but we figured it out by talking to some people. It's "yago a oha".
Bad spelling probably, but that's the closest that I can get. Some people then get the ring inlaid. If I were to do that I think I would want the inlaying to be all black.
I ate some pizza with green chili on it. It was really good. There's a library where we send emails, I have to check out a laptop to do it. Most people here are less active, but there are a couple of investigators.
My companion's grandma made some peanut brittle and you know I don't really like peanut brittle, but this was really good. I was surprised. Great, after talking about pizza and the peanut brittle now I'm really hungry -- it's 15 minutes til 12 right now.
