Fam Bam and Friends!
How are we? What’s new? Well let me tell you! This week was a reminder that the mission is here for me to learn as well! Let’s start with the shenanigans of the week! First and foremost, I ate dinner with Sam Fegan He graduated El Camino high school with Brock and said that they were in the same music class! Brock does that name sound familiar? It was a good dinner too! We played basketball with about 15 priest aged High Schoolers and killed them. It was sick playing with Elder Anderson. We make a good team on the court. This whole week we helped kids with Down syndrome or other mental disabilities learn how to ride a bike! It was a lot harder than I thought. My companionship was with a kid named Carter, everyone said he could have been my kid because we are the same skin color??? Other than that, we had no similarities, it was kind of funny when people said that! By the end of the week(Friday) we got Carter riding his own bike and on two wheels! It was cool to see his face light up when we stopped chasing him and he was crusin by himself!
I ate some of the most bomb ribs this week! Some member spent 6 hours on preparing and making ribs and it was fantastic. We did a District Blitz in Northridge Ward to help find some investigators. District Meeting this week was all about Love/Charity and Baptism. We specifically talked about how our love for God effects our actions and how willing and motivated we are to serve with all our heart, might, mind, and strength. I asked everyone to show more love to their companions, investigators, and members! We talked about the importance of understanding when and investigator is ready and progressing toward baptism. According to the Assistants there is confusion about this topic throughout the mission, which is not good. People need to understand when baptism is the next step for investigators.
Other than this crazy week I have been doing great. I got a Brand-New Mini Preach My Gospel and I am rereading the whole book and will make new markings in it. A goal I have for the week is to invite 20 people to be baptized. I have no District Meeting this week because of Zone Conferences. President Jardine leaves this Friday. Friday, we will have a new Mission President, President Hymas! It will be a weird week. Love you and miss you all in Idaho.
