|Damage to Car - side view|
I guess the biggest news this week was I hit a deer on Thursday morning! We were all meeting together as missionaries to play dodge-ball or basketball. So this was about at 6:25am and it was still dark. It wasn't around a turn or anything but it was a dark stretch of road. I suddenly saw a brown furry thing. It was a deer and I hit him. Sister N and I think it was about a 4 point buck. He was running across the road coming from the driver's side. He didn't fly up which was lucky for us because there could have been a lot more damage. He sat up, and looked dazed after we hit him. Someone called the cops for us. I was directing traffic around our car and the deer. (Yes, Mom I put on my emergency blinkers.)
Luckily President Y and all the adults were very understanding. I even got teased about being a Bambi killer, by President L (he's in our mission presidency) but did it in a loving way. I knew he was teasing which weird enough helped me feel better about it. We also got a replacement car while this one is being fixed. It is actually a car I have driven before in another area.
We are continuing to do good work over here. This is one of the friendliest wards I have ever been in. We are working on helping members with their family mission plans. It is exciting to tell stories of member missionaries and their efforts. I have told some of Dad's stories about home-teaching. Thanks, Dad for your great example!
I love you! Thank you for all you do. Love, Sister Cluff
P.S. Mom, I am fine, really.
