Tuesday we had district meeting so we went to Cabot for exchanges as well. Elder Stratton is going home next week, so he wanted to do the mean pig challenge. What that is: a food challenge on a pulled pork sandwhich that is so spicy, it was made to make you throw up. He got 4 bites in and called it quits. His eyes were watering and his nose was runny and it was hilarious hahaha. So many of us went to watch. We also found a lady who was a former RLDS member but thought it was bad and wants the truth and asked us to come teach her! We walked a bit and didn't find anyone until we had Book of Mormon class where we taught the plan of salvation to a gator. It was cool cause we used the videos on LDS.org and they work so great! She totally had her answers to her questions. We played volleyball afterward.
Thursday we went on an exchange with the Quitman elders. It's one of our more worried areas, so we went to boost them. Not much happened, saw a less active and a couple others who didn't answer. Life of a missionary. It's a tough area, but not as bad as it's made out to be. We went to Walmart that night (yes mom, I got my shaker cup...it has the star spangled on it) and ran into a couple guys from Utah! They didn't wanna hear our message, but they were cool.

Saturday was actually really taxing. We walked all day and it was 99 degrees but the heat index said it felt like 110. So we got super dehydrated and tired. We just got rejection after rejection after rejection haha. It wasn't the best day. Lots of things just didn't go our way, but it's okay! It didn't break us! We had some tender mercies where some people came and gave us rides and lots of people gave us water. So that was really cool. We saw the Gonzer family again and they want to get back to church! They want us to get their son on a mission. He plays guitar so I'm gonna try to connect with him on that. Shout out to Miranda for breaking my 14 week dry spell of letters!
