Elder Brewer is sorry for the late update. He didn't have any time to write a full e-mail due to bad planning and a lot of random things that popped up. (That happens a lot believe it or not).
This last week we were preparing for transfers every day and the 15 new missionaries who came in and then trying to make all that go smoothly. So from last week on Sunday we organized a bit of service for the week to go help translate for the Operation Smile to help fix cleft lips at the Cambodian Russian Friendship Hospital.I met a girl there from Connecticut named Brin who asked why we were called "Elder." So I told her there was a long story and a short story. She said she would like to hear the long one. At this point my companion and I were only translating for the presentations to the kids about health and safety. We had some down time so we went though the entire restoration lesson and the Book of Mormon. She was very interested and expressed a desire to read the Book of Mormon, I told her i could get one to her the next day when i will be translating here again. That night I was really sick and unable to go to assist in translating and tried to send it through someone else but they couldn't find Brin. So that night I wrote my testimony in the book and highlighted some favorite scriptures. I was sick in bed all day from what I assume was food poisoning, I had a burger again. So ever since I had a bad burger here two months ago I haven't been able to eat ground beef without getting sick to my stomach and have other stomach problems.... So even if its okay ground beef that everyone else can eat I still get sick. I'm done with beef in Cambodia. (Maybe forever who knows).
Stay tuned I'll send this week in just a minute!
Love, Elder brewer
