This week was amazing! By far the highlight was yesterday when we got to call our families. For Elder Petrucka, it was his second phone call (if you count when he got to call home in the airport), and for me it was my second to last phone call. It was great to see my family, even though we were only allowed to call for forty minutes as opposed to the hour we used to get, but there are worse things than that. We'll get all of eternity to be with each other after all...
This week also had by far the most interesting meeting of my entire mission. Every year our Mission President gets us together and we watch a Christmas movie or two and then speak about Christ and why we're celebrating this holiday. This year, we watched a Hallmark movie called Christmas for a Dollar, but that wasn't the interesting part. Right after eating lunch, the fire alarm went off, and we all started evacuating the building slightly confused as to what was happening. Turns out, it was so cold that some pipes burst and the building was flooding at a rapid pace. The fire department showed up, and not too long after that portions of the ceiling collapsed due to the weight of the water. I don't think I'm ever going to forget the image of what appeared to be rain falling out of light bulbs and air vents in the ceiling. It was quite the Christmas miracle that we were all fine!
Hope y'all have a great week (and a happy New Year)!!
