The first dog bite is always the apologetic mic drop. peace out.

Is this improper or respectful?
What is good my dudes?!  This week was full of physical pain haha.  I went on 2 exchanges this week with Elders Garn and Goaslind!  Tuesday we did some service for a guy named brother Nolan!  He's back and forth between 2 houses so he's not always around but we were able to help him and another member fix up a house on the lake that he's going to try to rent out!  Nothing like manual labor and shovels to put in rocks and gravel!

We saw a lady named Kay Everett and she's sick!  We've taught her a lot and she loves it when we come by!  Although her dog did get me haha.  It was growling and ready to pounce but I saw Kay inside so I ran to the door and the dog got my foot haha.  But all is well in Zion, just a little tooth mark on my toe!  Them little terriers will getcha!


I got to do solo service as well!  I moved five 86 pound cabinets by myself from a trailer, onto a dolly, down a dirt hill with bumps and rock, up and into a shipping container that the member turned into a shooting range haha.  I made 3 trips and did it all by myself cause no one thought it would be good to help but oh well!  My forearms and back should be yoked in no time haha.  We then got a challenge on Thursday to helped someone carry their groceries from a store and we did it!  The lady was freaked out but thanked us anyways!

I'm feeling Samuelish right about now...
I've started to take tallies of amount of times females yell at us, honk at us, flirt with us, reach outside of the car and try to touch us and also how many people just yell out, "YEAH MORMONS," from their car haha.  I'm racking up on tallies!  Each one of those happened like 5 times or so each last week.  Why I never got this amount of female attraction at home?  I've come to a Arizona, New Mexico and Utah, most people look decent, BUT in Memphis, there was no such thing as a well dressed man or boy or anything, so we were automatically #1 stunners, and in Hot Springs, everyone is very country and rough(ish) so again, well dressed and talking about Christ is #1 stunner haha.  Of course I'm sure they were all trying to talk to my companion cause he's adorable...;).

Rain and white!
We then talked to a Guy named Jeff who was super sick!  He knows everything about a missionaries life!  He even knows about P day and when it ends hahaha.  He's super chill and even had us teach his friend the first discussion!  We're seeing him tomorrow!  I can't wait!  And yesterday we had a record day of investigators to church!  6 investigators came!!  It was awesome!!  While on exchanges, Elder Goaslind and I got caught in a huge rain storm!!  We were soaked from head to toe!  While we were at a stop light waiting to be able to walk, a car pulled up with 2 girls who tried offering us an umbrella, but by that time we were already soaked and had no need for it, so we declined haha.  Let me te

ll you though, they would be good missionaries because they were very persistent!  The light turned green and they drove away but it was funny that they really wanted us to take that umbrella.
A district that goofs together...

This week I really cracked down on myself and finding because I'm being WAY too timid and afraid to talk to people, but I talked to Elder Edwards a few days ago and a little pump up later and a quote really hit me and got me in the right mood!  It was "Doctrine understood changes attitude."  And holy crap is that right.  When we truly understand the doctrine of what we teach and how we should really act, it changes us.  I still need work, but I'm getting there!  This week we're going to start doing fun things to find!  We're going to try to carry around a fake microphone and ask people what Jesus has done for them haha.

So I leaked some info earlier, I'M STAYING IN HOT SPRINGS WITH A NEW COMPANION!!!  Elder Goaslind was mad because I'm with his favorite companion he has had haha.  He loves trump and America so we're going to get work done!  He was also a quarterback!  His name is Elder Hill!
Nevermind...I guess they don't stick together! :(
I also was released from District Leader!  Thank goodness!  I mean I feel bad because I really did NOT live up to expectations, but I'm glad because now I can go back to just being a missionary and not having to worry about other companionships or district problems!  So I'm so happy!  It taught me some good lessons though!  Like patience for one and defining your humility.  I mean, I'm still Kai and I'm still king of the freaking world, but I'm a little more humbled ;).

And just a reminder, I'm halfway to the Mission 40!  The average weight gain out here is 40 pounds so I might come back fat hahaha.  I can't wait to not be recognized, but I can also wait because the mission is dope!

Well I sure do love ya guys!  Get at me for more adventures of Elder Adair!  Will Elder Adair and Elder Hill get along?  Can they raise the bar and totally kill it?  Will Elder Adair ever get better looking?  The world may never know the last one, BUT TUNE IN NEXT WEEK FOR MORE!!  PEACE OUT, IM OUT! *drops mic* *walks away* *comes back and dusts off mic because it doesn't belong to me and I felt bad for disrespecting church property* *repents*
