This week was a great one; I got my new companion, Elder Bacon. He’s the best! He’s our district leader, he’s been out for 1 1/2 years, he plays the piano really, really, well, he plays the bass, he’s good at bball, he did not play football for Timpview, and he’s super funny. We’ve been having a lot of fun, we set up the kitchen table in the main room with a net on it, and we’ve been playing ping pong every night before bed. It’s a blast! We always tell each other we are Tubbs of Bacon.
This week has been normal, except I have been the one leading the area and showing Elder Bacon around; it’s hard work; I haven’t wrecked though, so that’s good! This past week we talked to some interesting people. We taught a guy who is in house arrest for going 150 on his bullet bike – it’s good though, we always know he’s home. We taught Mark and Debbi, and Larry and Breanna, who are all doing great! Mark is preparing to be baptized on March 3rd! I’m so excited for him; he even went to a fireside last night with a few of his friends from the ward! This is a good ward, they’re so friendly and welcoming to anyone we bring.
On Wednesday I was on exchanges with our zone leader Elder Anderson, we ran into a pagan. (I didn’t know there were still people who believed in that stuff) and a few other interesting people. We did a lot of contacting that day. Then we found a street vendor who is kinda like an ice cream man. But we got corn on the cob from him, with mayo and cheese and chili powder. It was so good! I felt like I was in Mexico. Woodland is at least 50% Hispanic.
Sorry, I’m terrible at emailing unless I’m answering specific questions.
So this week I was reading PMG and it talked about how when we think of why we do things the gospel makes sense, instead of being a random list of things we can and can’t do.
So I thought of some questions that each of you need to think about, then share with each other during FHE,
Moms question is: why do you go to church?
Dads question is: why do you hold the priesthood?
Spencer’s is: why are you preparing for a mission?
Megan gets: why do you read your scriptures?
Matthew gets: why do you pray?
