Week 20

Hey guys,

This email is going to be a little bit short because I have been inside my entire week. So here's the highlights of the week lol.

Monday: Mission nurse called us and said "Hey, you're in quarantine now lol."

Tuesday: Friday in quarantine. Friday morning another call from the Nurse "Hey ya'll are still in quarantine because those Elders who drove you to Walmart tested positive. Have fun till Nov 9th."

Friday - Today: still inside haha. We don't have any symptoms, so we're just waiting to leave.

Our goal for our district is to get one person on date by Nov. 7th, so your prayers would definitely be appreciated haha. 

Being inside all the time is difficult, but there are some positives. I know a ton about my companion now, and have more time to read the scriptures. Being in isolation is hard even for me, and I like having reasons to not be social lol. There comes a lot of soul searching when you sit and realize your a teenager trying to proclaim salvation to people with actual life problems. 

I'd like to share a scripture from Doctrine and Covenants 88. D&C 88:6767 And if your eye be single to my glory, your whole bodies shall be filled with light, and there shall be no darkness in you; and that body which is filled with light comprehendeth all things.

Now, I don't know about you, but being filled with light and having an eye single glory of God, it doesn't get much better than that. So that's the goal my friends. Keep reading your scriptures and praying and this blessing can be yours!

I love all of you and Can't wait to go outside again haha.

Love,
Elder Martineau

Crazy stuff (lol)
1. In quarantine we talk about a lot of crazy stuff. From the past of the CARS universe, to the best way to sit on a bus.
2. My companion wants me to get good at Spanish so I can go "Latina hunting" after my mission. He's an interesting fellow.
3. We can't decide whether our couches are better beds than are beds are.

Pictures:
(Picture 1): Levi is spreading happiness while we're are in quarantine. The sign says "Hello! I am" Levi the Shark"! I hope you have a good day!" He's pretty cute.
(Picture 2): My comp sitting at his desk. Not much picture material because of quarantine.
(Picture 3): A cool picture I found called "First Vision from afar." I don't think it's doctrine, but a cool concept.
