Hey everyone! Not much has happened this week so we'll touch some
highlights shall we?
It was in an
intercambio, I was with elder pitman from Pocatello Idaho.
That night we had 10 elders come down to sleep in our piso because of
It was insane. I made breakfast
burritos for everyone and they were delish. I never want ten elders in
a piso ever again....
Zone conference was awesome. We talked all about the BoM and how to
better use it in the work. It was definitely inspired and we received
a lot of revelation. Well I did at least, I hope the others did as
Exchanges with the APs after was legit, I was with Elder Boyd from
Murray! He loves basketball and music so we had a blast together haha.
We had 6 lessons planned between the four of us and 5 fell through...
the one that actually happened was with some Indian guy who came back
20 minutes later to return the BoM and drop us. So that was sad.
I had this feeling to knock every door in this building after a lesson
failed and Elder Boyd has the same feeling. So we did! 12 floors of
doors to knock. We met some cool people and found this Venezuelan guy
who we'll visit later this week so that was definite inspiration to
knock😊 that's all that happened though Hahah. We took out some
people's garbage though! #servics
Elder Trantham and I talked for like an hour that night about his
life. He's a legit MMA fighter! He's from Green Mountain, up by Ogden.
Inspired me to want to become a fighter too... but that won't happen.
So naturally him and Elder Priest had a wrestling match😶 it was
hilarious, elder Boyd and I just died laughing the whole time😂
So we finished the week with 3 lessons taught so I don't have any
super spiritual experiences to write about. So I apologize for that.
But we have seen small miracles in our street contacting! We've been
working hard to find new creative ways to find people and they've been
paying off. Hopefully we actually get to meet with some of these
I read a talk from April 2014 called "Your 4 minutes". Talks about
this Olympian who trained her whole life for a four minute event and
had the rest of her life to dwell on what happened in that event.
Elder Stevenson related to our own lives. We prepared in the pre earth
life for our own 4 minutes on this earth and we will have all eternity
to think about our four minutes here. We need to do all we can to
follow Christ so we have no regrets as we look back on our lives here!
Hope you all have a great week!
I tried getting in all of elder priests goodbye photos haha
