We had a pretty crazy day and don't have a ton of time to email today so I will be very brief.
This week we had Zone Training and to hear about it please listen to the voice recording below. We challenged our Zone to get a certain amount of baptisms this week and if they met their goals we would let them throw whip cream pies in our faces. Well, we are men of our word and our Zone got those baptisms, so we had a pie throwing intermission during our Zone meeting. It turned into more of a full contact event than we had planned, ending with Elder Ariotti getting a 3rd degree concussion. :( He said it was still worth it though. After that excitement I went on exchange with one of the Assistants, Elder Adams. The rest of the week was fairly unproductive as far as missionary work goes, we spent mostly doing Zone Leader stuff.
Last night we had transfer calls and I will be transferred to the Linton Branch, a Haitian Branch in the Palm Beach Stake and my companion will be Elder Christensen. We will be whitewashing in (both new to the area) and we will be the Zone Leaders!
As for my last thought, the Book of Mormon is truly the word of God and if you study it with real intent, with a question or a problem in mind, it will help you to overcome your difficulties. So read it!

his Ramen noodle-like wavy hair, with a package of Ramen noodles on his head!

This is a good look!
I can't believe he didn't take off his tie :(
This may have been the pie that caused the "concussion".
This Elder is airborne coming in to deliver this pie to Elder Ariotti's face. Yikes!
