so it all starts sunday night. elder hilton because of his toe we kinda had to sit around all day and its like 830 before we are about to start getting ready for bed and his recent converts call him up and are all like "are you not gonna visit us??? we made food and are waiting for you?" so we hustled over to our house. until this time we had still not recieved the transfer from president so we could buy the bus tickets for the very next day. really crunch time. president then called us at like 10:30 to tell us he had sent the transfer but we couldnt go look at it until tomorow.

monday we left elder hilton home and went to the office before the rooster crowed so the we could get started on the passage buy. we then spent from 8 am - 2 pm in the bus station. returned to the office to clean up a little bit and start calling the whole mission to let them know what time their bus was. after about an hour 4 mysterious box of pizza showed up, turns out president was feeling the love and had sent pizza to the office for us. So we chowed down until he got there to have a meeting with us. Which turned into some good training that went until 630 and elder hiltons bus was at 715 all of his bags still at home. As karianne's child i promptly thought of "divide and conquer" so we had some quick divisions and elder hilton still missed the bus. (about this time his head cold really kicked in and he lost his voice/his eyes started swelling up) so we got to the bus station to find elder hilton was not there. he had gone back to the office alone, to hang out with president because he missed the bus. so we waited at the bus station for more people that were starting to leave the capital. At this time i started to realized that i had picked up elder hiltons head cold. i thought i was gonna die. Everyone got their buses and we sent elder hilton to itabuna then porto seguro. we returned to the office to finish a few things with elder christofferson (stayed the night at our house) then went home to sleep. Started the next at 500 am and i woke up dead.
tuesday. woke up feeling like i had been run over by a train. seriously i never felt so awful in my life. not even wheni got knocked out in football. but we had training for the new missionaries so we hurried to called taxis and ubers for all the missionaries getting into the city because of transfer and recieving training in the mission home. finally got to presidents house about 9 and went straight to the airport to get the new missionaries. everything was great we got them and started our way home when my fever really kicked in and i got carsick. we made it to presidents house and here is the true best moment of the week. i pushed passed all the new missionaries in the van to open the door. as i opened the door i jumped out and mid air puked all my breakfast and the food i ate last night. and everyone was watching from presidents apartment window. so about 1/3 of the misson and all the new missionaries saw me throw up. nice sam. i just kinda walked off in shame and sat down on the side walk ahahhahahaah. everyone went inside and they started the festivities and i just kinda sat outside for an hour. then when i ventured inside (without my tie cuz i threw up on it) sister bangerter took me in the back room and i laid down for a little bit. they woke me up in time to give the secretaries part of the training and i felt better for the rest of the day. we were able to get everyone on their buses to their cities.
wednesday we woke up to phone calls from president bangerter asking about a missionary going home on thursday that was supposed to show up in salvador on tuesday morning and had still not arrived. Turns out elder boemia had missed the bus from Mucuri (18 by bus to salvador the last city in bahia before the state Espirito Santo) TWO TIMES MONDAY AND TUESDAY. so we started calling every missionary in his zone trying to figure out where he was. he was still in mucuri and was able to get on the bus. we had a normal day besides that in the office and we got to our area for the first time but as we started climbing some stairs i got sick so we went home hahah.
thursday morning. so my toe has had an ingrown toenail for awhile. i woke up to a nice big ball of pus. ( i popped it ill send pics) so i called sister bangerter and she sent me to get it checked out at some fancy beauty salon that does work with this kinda stuff instead of the hospital. were waiting for my appointment when president calls us to let us know that a sister left TWO PIECES OF LUGGAGE in the pousada and her plane to go home left in a hour. so we remarked the appointment and hustled to the pousada and got the bags there in time. i went back to the place and got a bunch of my toenail torn out then spent the day doing missionary work. but also had one elder whose flight was at 1150 pm so we had the privilege to take him to the airport and got home very late. secretary life woo hoo.
friday was pretty normal still werent able to escape the office and we got to do some good work in our area. we had an awesome family night with a members family and their neighbors. we watched the lamb of god video and it was nice.
saturday is today. my toe is doing well and im not very sick anymore hahah. its been a week for the record books. dont worry mom im totally fine.
