Adventures in FLMTH: Chase vs Histamines

Let me start by saying that Philomath is a great place to be. It's right on the outskirts of Corvallis so we're close enough to a big city but Philomath itself has a great small town feel to it. There's only about four thousand people, so the community is really tight knit. Speaking of the community, the people here are SO nice. The members and non members alike are all extremely friendly and willing to talk which is a nice change from some other people in Oregon.

Since we've been here, we've been doing a ton of service around the community. It was during service that I learned that I'm allergic to the greater Corvallis area, but that's a different story. We worked at the Habitat for Humanity, the local food bank, and helping some members move out of their place. It was a great way to get ourselves out there and help others out.

I've been able to meet a lot of really cool people that missionaries have been working with in the past. We have quite a few investigators that could be baptized here pretty soon, but for the most part, it looks like we'll be doing a lot of finding new people to teach. We do spend a lot of time with some less active members of the ward who are just fantastic.

Some of the highlights of this week include destroying an entertainment center with sledgehammers, teaching sharing time in primary (note, primary children don't know anything about architecture, so don't try and explain it to them), eating at Chipotle for lunch one day, and having interviews with the mission president where we got to hang out as a whole zone for a while which was a blast.

I'm really looking forward to the experiences that I'll have up here in Philomath over the next few weeks. Until then, stay tuned.
