My Two Favorite Letters

I don't know why, but for some reason I have always been on the hot side. Don't judge, I don't mean to say I am extremely good looking with a perfect body. What I mean to say is when others are cold I am either too hot, or perfectly comfortable. I know that men have a higher temperature than women from testosterone, higher red blood cell count, and higher metabolic needs. Maybe my thyroid is slightly over active? Who knows, but what I do know is I have always just seemed to have ice in my veins. People would ask me where I wanted to go to medical school. I would always reply, "somewhere with 4 seasons". As luck would have it I have ended up at a school where there is one season. SUMMER! A summer that constantly feels as if it is in the height of the July heat in Utah. Not only that but a stifling humidity has made things for this snowman especially difficult to bear. I have good news though! Our church finally installed some AC! Yes, that is right AC! My two favorite letters in the alphabet. Just yesterday we took the new AC for spin and church was a lot more enjoyable when I was no longer sedated by the day's heat. The Grenada branch has been growing, there seem to be baptisms each week with people who really seem to be solid and committed. We have had to put an addition on the church as well and I am happy to see it filled to near capacity. I mainly wanted to blog about this so my old Grenada friends could hear the news and see the progress we have made in such a short amount of time since they left. It has been neat to see things change so quickly.

WOW! That's amazing! Thank you so much for filling us in, Nick! I seriously thought the addition and AC would never happen. I'm thrilled for the Branch that it did and it's growing so well. That would make church WAAAAY more bearable!

That is so great! I'd love to see a picture of the new addition... I'm so glad to hear that the branch is growing and with such great members. Good luck with this last 1/2 of the semester :)

oh, man! AC!! We are totally jealous! That would make me want to go to church every week for sure, it was always so unbearable! Congrats on the baby by the way! Good luck with the end of Grenada!!

Yeah I thought of you all when I was sitting in there thinking...man everyone would love this! It wasn't like an ice box in there but it was way more comfortable.

Yeah!! That's wonderful! We were promised the A/C the first term we were there. Guess it all just runs on Grenada time down there. And that's great the expansion is completed. But now I'm super curious. Are there any pictures by chance Nick the Knife? It's wonderful to hear good things about the branch. I still think of it on Sundays.

Haha I can imagine a huge painting of Nick the Knife on the wall behind the speaker! I am sure I will always think of Grenada branch on Sundays for the rest of my life :)
