Hello my fellow awesome people! Don't judge my letter today because I am in a weird mood. Well all us elders are right now so no judging me. Anywayyyyy Elder Seely can't get the alarm to go off right now and is yelling at the microwave, like I said we are all in a weird mood. Well this week has been a weird mood week.. Elder Jones, Elder Seely, and I played some madlib football this week. It started off as a sort of studying tool, we would toss the ball back and forth and when you caught it you said a word from the First Vision and we tried to get it all said. It didn't work. We started saying random things and eventually we were trying to say weird things...but they still kind of had to make sense...kind of.... Sometimes they didn't make any sense but a lot of the time we don't make any sense so no worries!
We had a Zone Conference this week and it was my first. It was way good too and was all about the Atonement. I love the Atonement. Later that same night, I think it was Thursday, we had a mission call. President Riggs talked to the whole mission over the phone. Learned a lot but one thing that's stuck in my head is "Don't let others control your attitude." We always have agency!
Friday night things got crazy in the apartment. It was Safari Down Under! Elder Seely put Elder Jones' safari hat on anddddd then went all Croc-hunter Seely on us. He was hilarious. At one point that night he had all of us dying of laughter and rolling on the floor or falling off the couches. Always a party in the Fort. (That's what we call our area because it's Fort Belvoir)
Yesterday we had a Half Mission Conference and a General Authority, Elder Kopischke, came and talked to us. That's why our preparation day got moved to Tuesday instead of Monday. He talked a lot about giving all that we have to God but nothing more. We need to strive to give OUR best and that's what God wants from us. We all are different and so we all give different things and amounts. It was a great conference even though it was 8 hours long.
Love, Elder Brady
Elder McInerny, Elder Seely, & Elder Brady
