OH THE JOY OF NEAR ELECTROCUTION


Can you see a resemblance between this and the self portrait above that Jed drew on his letter that he wrote to us from the Mission Home!
Elder Breinholt & Elder Cordeiro
Their apartment



We had a great e-mail from Jed today here are the highlights:


"ok this week was great...showers fixed...thats pretty great...the heating coil had come out...no connection...no heat. Anyway turns out that this week was really weird...correction...saturday was weird...


you see the morning i had gotten up to get a shower...this was after the shower was fixed and hot...got in...just got done shampooing my hair...when all of the sudden...there came a rather loud pop from the wall where the shower plugs in...not wanting to fry myself i quickly turned off the shower and got out...started getting ready...when another louder pop came from the same place... this time the power went off in the apartment...checked the breaker...nothing tripped...so elder cordeiro went down to the landlord to see...only the landlord wasn´t there...so we checked the main breaker for the whole apt. complex...only 2...and sure enough i had tripped the main breaker...this was caused by bad wiring...which was fixed today!


story 2...happened same day...saturday
we had an activity for mothers day at the church...so we start preparing for this activity...everything is fine and dandy...and when we are about to start the activity the power goes out...IN THE WHOLE CITY!...we sat for about 45 minutes with just the Emergency lights on...then it came back on...YAY...Not 5 minutes later it goes back off...we missionaries have to get home...this is like 8:00 at night...stays off for 30 minutes...on for 15...YAY...off again...and it was off for another hour while we walked home...weird
