This week was a roller coaster let me tell ya! First YSA work and tracking down young adults is a very hard thing to do. They have school and work and sleep all the time! It looks like I already know what my life is going to be like when I get home!
Elder Berry and I have spent most of the week getting to know each other and setting goals for our Zone and Companionship! Literally this was the first week of the transfer so not a whole lot of meetings or crazy activities yet. The highlight of the week had to be Stake Conference!
Ok I will try and list off all the families that swarmed me...I mean came up and talked to me this week! The Foxes, Potts, Mullens, Haas, Jenson, Stephenson’s, Busch’s, Bishop and President Hogge and I'm blanking on a few more! It was good to see everyone! Everyone said I was tall and all grown up! I actually hope I grow a couple more inches...so I can’t be all the way grown up yet!
We met at Bishop Hogge’s house twice this week! Both times he asked about home and how my family was doing! I thought it was awesome! I can tell he wants to just ask a bunch of questions but keeps it on purpose for us missionaries! He is a great man and great Bishop! We live in apartments off Bruceville! So very familiar spot and I know my way around town as if I lived here or something!
I think highlight of the week was teaching a new investigator. He has met with missionaries before but this time he is a lot more committal. We feel like this could be his time to enter the gateway! He was unable to come to conference for actual legit family problems so we know he wasn't actually flaking on us! I’m pumped to be teaching him and hopefully something amazing will happen with him! Elder Nelson is doing great out here! Everywhere we drive I am just yelling saying “Hey I remember that place, or Hey I have been there!” My poor companion I bet he is sick of me pointing at everything and yelling at it! Anyways I got some pictures to share! We had a Zone Activity today! We each came with little minute to win it games! We all played at Elk Grove Park! This week was good. Hopefully this upcoming week is just as awesome!
