Day 5 and Day 6

Alright, things are going awesome....I am pretty much just working my butt off, it is crazy, pretty much every morning I am waking up around 6-ish and then going to work and then coming home around 5:30 in the evening, realizing how tired I am, I then eat some food, do preparation for my job the next day and then go to bed....yup that is what is happening so far, but I love it (and truly if you want to know more about my job call me cause I would love to tell you all about it, I just can't say much on here).  But....yesterday (Sunday) after work we came home all sweaty and nasty and ran into our apartments, changed cloths into sunday cloths, and then ran back out to the bus to take us to a location by Disney University to be picked up for church.  So we went to church in all our nastiness, but dressed nicely, and it was wonderful to have church even though it was only about 40 minutes long.  Pretty much for the College Program people down here we can't always make it to morning church and so they hold a night church at 8 at night and it is pretty much just a short sacrament meeting with one or two talks.  It was great to go (even though we were all at the point of almost falling asleep cause we were so tired) because it just hadn't felt like Sunday the whole day, which was hard cause I really wanted to treat the day like a normal Sabbath Day but wasn't able to because of work, but it turned out good with the sacrament meeting.  After that then I met the missionaries there and found out that one of my dear friends here in the program with me was going to be visited by them that night, and so I told them that I knew her and they asked it I would come along and I said sure I would love to.  So it was great cause I got to drive with them back tot he apartments and visit with them, and it was awesome, and then we were able to give a blessing to my friend and it was awesome, I could just feel how much the Lord loves her and how much He truly cares for her, He gave her some amazing council and warnings that I haven't really ever heard so potently before, so it was amazing and I was glad to be able to be there for her as a friend and give her my love, she really is amazing and I love her dearly.  That same friend told me today that she is going to be going home back to utah tomorrow because she has just been having a hard time with life down here, but the blessing was able to give her good council to follow and it sounds like she followed it so it is good she is going home, but I am still sad she is leaving cause in these few short days we have created a very pure and strong bond with each other and I will truly miss that and miss her.  But that is all good friends do come and friends do go and we just can do our best to keep contact and keep that relationship alive if it really has that worth to us.  But anyway, life is going great, I am having a great time down here (especially with the new experiences such as Dole Whip/Pineapple Float from the Dole shop in animal kingdom which is so wonderful, it is soft serve pineapple ice cream (for the whip) and then the float is that same stuff but in a cup full of pineapple juice, oh ya it is good).  I love you all and I hope that things are going well.
