Jokingly, Chad gave me this scripture to put on his:
Ecclesiastes 5:12 - the sleep of a labouring man is sweet, whether he eats little or much.....
This week, his mini-mission companion is a young man who works at a 5-star restaurant there in Chile. He has been cooking some great stuff for Chad, so I hear, and Chad loves good food just like the rest of us. So it sounds like he has been eating - and sleeping - better lately.
Chad's mini-mission companionTuesday Chad and his companion found a litter of kittens in their yard. They waited to see if the mother was going to come back, but after hearing the cats constantly crying, they decided keep them from starving to death. So they had 4 cats for 3 days. Fortunately, they found a sister in their ward to take them off their hands, since it's not exactly OK for missionaries to have pets . . .
Elder Carey 'serving' the kitties... Chad is now going to be a trainer, starting tomorrow! He says that after all the excitement that he has had, with being robbed at gunpoint, a stolen TV by a companion who had a meltdown, cats in their house, another who broke his finger and had to have surgery and sent home, and 5 companions in one change, too much attention was drawn to him. But I know it's just because he is a fantastic missionary and person! And so he will now be known in the mission as a 'Dad'.
