Don't Waste Time ... 180 days to serve here in California Irvine Mission

Lets see, this week has been a pretty good one, but again still pretty crazy.
the craziest thing was I got a call Thursday night saying I was going to be having an interview with President Ellis on Friday at three. Well that is all fine and dandy, I had a doctors appointment with the Foot lady Nahid at 10:45 so the plan turned into spend the whole day in San Clemente to do our weekly planning until we came back from the interview. Well, on our way from Mission Viejo to the Stake Center in San Clemente we stopped at the Rubalcava's Elder Byrd and I both served in Dana Point. So we stopped by and ended up having lunch there with Sister Rubalcava and her daughter, it was really fun. So after that we got to the stake center at around 2:30 and we heard President Ellis was a little bit behind in his interview schedule. Well, it got to be about 3:30, and 5 other people who were supposed to go after me had set lessons and so they needed to go ahead of me, by the time all of them were done it was 6:00 in the night time and President Ellis had to do a baptismal interview that was supposed to start at 5:30. So he did that one until 7:00, did the interview of the other person in front of me, until 8:00, then he met with me from 8:00 until 9:15. We then had to take the other elders that were there a ride back home, then we had to stop somewhere to pick something up from some other missionaries in Mission Viejo. We ended up getting home around 10:30, so insane!!!  So that was our Friday, ended up being so insane, out of the newport stake for about 12 hours haha!!! (not appropriate!) its all about being a missionary, The Life and Times of a Missionary - hurry up and WAIT!

Last P-Day we made our district T-Shirts. That is what mine looks like as you look at the pictures. They are pretty sweet, they turned out really great.
Other than that not to much to mention from the week. Had a good exchange with Elder McReynolds who is my zone leader. I will send some pictures from the Marshallese dinner party we had while on exchanges it was insane but it was so much fun.
Today the mission is doing a mission basketball tournament, each stake put together two teams of 6 an A and B team so 14 teams in total and today it is tournament day with double elimination to win the tournament, it should be super fun, I of course am not playing because I suck at playing basketball, but I am going to attempt the coaching side of it. We shall see how that goes. 

Anyways, that is all. Keep up the good work you all do. I really do appreciate all you do for me. I love you so much and thank you again for everything. Hope the house stuff is going great. 

SUU got my scholarship acceptance and deferment request so I am all set to go, just need to pay the commitment fee coming up in the next couple months, after I hear back from BYU we shall decide what will need to happen. But I'm 85% sure SUU is where I should go.  

Have a great week, love you so much and hope your week goes great!!!!:)
