Dear Family and Friends,
This week was pretty packed. On Monday we did P-day things. We went to the Jelly Belly Factory. And I found a Rugby ball at the mall. Score! It was a good day. We then taught an investigator named Danny Reed. This guy is sweet. Elder Blowers and Eaton invited him to be baptized last week while on exchanges. This week we gave him a Book of Mormon and taught him about the restoration. He was so grateful for the book he asked us to sign it and called it a gift! He is such a cool guy. I’m very excited about him.
We taught a ton of people. We found this new investigator who was a referral from the Spanish Elders. His name is Lamonte. He is funny; we only got to see him for a second though. We’ll see him again soon though. We then read 1 Nephi 8 with a member of the Branch named David. He’s a very humble guy. He hasn’t been to church so we’ve been encouraging him to read and pray and come to church. He loves his dog, he talked about him for at least 15 minutes, and it was so much fun. It’s nice to just talk to people and get to know them. We then watched a movie with a girl named Ashley. It was about Joseph Smith, and she just got baptized and wants to learn more about him. Ha-ha, we aren’t just watching random movies with random girls. That would be bad. I then had the craziest experience of my life which I will not expound upon or talk about till I get home.
Anywho, on Wednesday we had district meeting. Then lunch. Then I had my last interview ever with President Bunker. It was a sad time. I’m going to miss him. He asked me if the singles branch was making me soft or if the girls were distracting me ha-ha. After the interview I had my toenail sawed off by a Pentecostal doctor. He was nice; he went to school with a lot of LDS students. It’s weird even when I’m at the doctor I just like talking to people and getting to know them. It only took 20 minutes and my toe was all good.
On Thursday our day was a bit longer because we had a lot of appointments fall through. So we got to walk around and talk to people on the street. That’s where you have the most fun. We also did a bit of service to prepare for a big service project tomorrow. We pulled all the old bark out of the playground at a homeless shelter for families.
On Friday, we did weekly planning. Then we did more service! We got to put all new bark in the playground and lay black tarp down to block weeds. The paper is doing a piece on Missionaries so there was a reporter and a photographer there. The photographer followed the Zone Leaders around all day it was pretty sweet. The Article should be out next Sunday.
On Saturday, we went to a lesson with a girl named Adrianna, who has an evil Parrot that tried to attack me. But I defended myself proficiently ha-ha.
Sunday, we had our regular 4.5 hours of church. It’s way sweet. We then had a Hmong break the fast at 4 and a singles BBQ break the fast at 5. Ha-ha. Sundays are the best.
And today I am at a members emailing, because the libraries are closed. They just fed us breakfast. I ate Cow Blood, and Shark! Well, see ya next week. Peace out.
