highlight this week was Conference! I loved every single bit of it! And I didn't
fall asleep once! What an accomplishment right?
Wednesday, I had a delicious dinner! Elder Sombke has introduced me to
Toppers. They are a cookie with cream in the middle just like oreos...They are
just as good, if not better than Oreos! I can't believe I just said something is
as good as oreos but its true! We ate 4 packs between each other for dinner. With
Milk of course:) The following morning I paid for my mistake...
Hanna Leavitt got her Call to Seoul, South Korea! Isn't that crazy?! And I hear
Jeremy Waite is going to Kentucky. Cool stuff!
One of our
investigators, Linda Mateta, has a daughter, Ahlumile. She is the cutest thing
ever! She turns 6 soon and every time she sees me she stops what she is doing
and runs and gives me a hug! Its the best thing ever! Its like she is my
This week will go by extra quick. We have Zone Traininng
and Interviews by President Wood this Thursday.
story. I played Cricket for the first time on Friday! I was unprepared for sport
except for some shoes so I was playing in my white shirt, slacks and some tennis
shoes! I was allowed to play reluctantly because 1. I'm white (JK) 2. I've never
played Cricket Before. I soon proved them that my athletic skills are pretty
good still! The game of Cricket is super confusing, but after seeing it on so
many TV's at members houses, I know how to play. Anyways, long story short, I
won the game for my team! Running was easy, it was like doing ladders on a
basketball court. Free throw line and back. So yesterday, the former Bishop of
2nd ward already recruited me for his team this Friday!
baptisms are still good for this Sunday! We will have regular church from 9 to
12, then watch the Sunday Afternoon Session from 1 to 3, and then have our
baptismal service for 7 people after that! We are doing well in
My favorite talk from Conference has been the talk by Gary E.
Stevenson. He is the presiding Bishop I think. He talked about the LDS athletes
in the Olympics! I related to that talk so well! It was for Elder Prisbrey! I
still have to watch the Sunday Afternoon Session so I might have a favorite talk
next week! Who knows:)
I love you all, thanks for everything.
Apply the teachings that you learned from conference! If you don't follow up on
it, it will be useless!
