Food Allergies Getting the Best of the Week

Hello Everyone, 
My week has been a crazy week so far I'm not even sure where to begin. Well last Monday we were to have a baptism for our investigator, but from the information we got from the previous Friday; his dad who is not active suddenly said he wants  to wait till he is ready and has learned more.  So we missed out on a baptism this week and we are having a hard time getting him back on track.
Another thing that make this week so crazy was that my companion was sick most the time he has been sick almost every day he has been here.  Other times he is really sick and it sucks cause then I run the risk of getting it. So I have been sick once or twice I don't remember this transfer has been a blur.
 Not much happened on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday due to his sickness I had to go to all the meetings myself it's hard running a stake by yourself. Friday we went on exchanges with other elders and then watched Saturday morning conference in our apartment. It was fun but to hectic and hard to pay attention in conference when they were talking but it was a great conference.
The priesthood session made me miss home cause we would go to on tap to get wings after. Sounds like you didn't do that this year with the Tompot's gone. I will miss them for sure, did Rick ever say what he was going to do out west here is he going to start up Tommy's again in the west or do something different? 
Well that leads to Sunday my companion got to go to the Sunday morning session of conference with sister Burrows I was pretty jealous of him haha but I enjoyed conference this year. My prediction was that elder Holland would be next prophet but the way president Monson was looking Sunday isn't going very well in my favor. But the way he was looking Saturday he looked better than the five apostles who are before Holland. I really think Holland will be prophet and I think he will do wonders for the church he is my favorite speaker along with President Monson and President Uchtdorf. 
 It's been a long week it feels like. I hope grandma and grandpappy are doing good. I'm surprised they didn't come sooner for the fair, but hey the fall weather is what I'm missing. Yeah it's getting cooler but not like home it's still getting pretty warm during the day.
Oh this week at one of our dinners these people were telling us that Utah has the worst weather as in flash floods and then something about winters being worse here and i started to laugh I couldn't help it. First off on average Utah only gets 18 inches of water fall a year. now can that become flash floods sure but not like home and they don't have very high humidity here 30% is like the most they get on average and it got to 105 this year and it was hot but I would take that over 90 back home any day. Winter should be getting pretty cold here but again it's a dry cold the people here don't understand the concept of humidity. oh well it was funny to show them Utah is a breeze. well thank you all for writing me this week have a wonderful week this week
