Had a pretty dang good week this last week.
On Monday we went and played some football and it was awesome! Boy do I miss that sport. Something funny that happened Monday night as we were coming out of a lesson at 8:30 we got a text from the other elders in our apartment saying we were having an apartment ship meeting and to meet at Taco Grande. This meant that we were going to meet there and just get milkshakes! (Makes no sense at all unless you are a missionary.) Funny thing about Taco Grande is that it is a Mexican restaurant, run by Filipinos, and the best thing to get there is a sandwich and milkshake...... also doesn't make sense unless you are a missionary. Well no even then it still doesn't make sense. On Tuesday we went to Su Pollo for lunch and ran into a guy there named Don Pascal. After he and his friend asked us where we were all from he said he was going to buy us lunch! How sweet is that!! He was a way nice guy and totally awesome!
Wednesday was Elder Jones's 20th birthday, so now I am the only one under 20 in the apartment . . . WooHoo! Anyway we had cake and a party and it was crazy haha. After we finally got out of the apartment Elder Seely and I went and raked leaves at one of our investigator's house. His name is Jason. Well I guess it wasn't really raking until the end because we got to use a leaf-blower! That made things super nice. When we got all the leaves into a pile we jumped in. We couldn't help it the pile was huge and just too tempting!
This week was colder than it has been and I whipped out the gloves for biking. It's not too cold, nothing like back home, but once you get going its a little bit chilly.
Last night there was an awesome fireside. It was a New and Returning Member Fireside. So basically it was a couple people telling their stories of conversion and their testimonies. It was so great. Brian Emmons, a new member in our Ward, was asked to talk and he did a great job!
This gospel leads to happiness and joy, just open your hearts and let it in. We can all learn something new from it every single day, something that can help us become. Become is a work that is pretty vague. Just think about that a little bit.
What do you want to become?
Love, Elder Brady
