Good Week

     Hellooooo everyone! Hope you all are doing good and have had a great week. Well here's my past week in a nutshell. Monday we had our Zone Activity. We all got some PVC 
Trio at Church with new haircuts
Elders Brady, Grow & Schenk
pipe and nerf darts and had like a nerf war! Well of was more of like a zombie apocalypse and if you got tagged you were a zombie but it was awesome. After that we had a district dodgeball tournament, so all the districts were their own team and it was a double elimination tournament. Finally we played a little basketball like always. We cut our hair tonight, Elder Schenk cut mine and I cut his and Elder Grow's hair now we are all look in' pretty fresh.Smiling face with Sunglasses
     Tuesday was Zone Training and it was a lot of stuff about faith. We were put into groups and given scriptures to read that told a story and all of them went back to faith. We need to have faith in the Lord but we also need to have faith in ourselves. We are capable of so much more than we think and when we can't do anymore the Lord is there to do what he can. He really will help us through our struggles and trials and he will help us to become more than we are now.
     On Wednesday we were helping out the other elders a lot by driving them to some of their appointments. I felt like a taxi except I didn't get any money out of the ordeal. I don't think I would like that job very much, I don't want to be a taxi driver. That's why you go to school!
     Thursday we got our very own iPads! We bought these ones and will take them home with us after the mission. We are also going to be receiving training to help us in using the iPads and our online proselyting efforts to become more efficient and effective so our mission will not be on Facebook for awhile. We don't know exactly when we will be back on Facebook but the target area is about a month or so of no Facebook. So until then if you want to contact me you can always email or write!
     On Friday we had lunch with our Zone Leaders, Elder Robbins and Elder Seely, at a park. We started throwing the baseball around a little too. Eventually that lead to rolling double plays and putting ourselves into scenarios. That then lead to us doing fly balls which took us to long bomb diving catches. We happened to be doing this on a turf field and we also happened to be in our shirts and ties... Yeah that happened. It was really fun though! Later that night Elder Schenk and I got a new investigator! Her name is Maggie and she was a referral from our Zone Leaders. She is from Ghana and has a 14 year old daughter we might be teaching as well so we are super excited for this next week to get to go see them.
     Saturday there was an ET. (Emergency Transfer) One of the other Elders in our ward, and quite a few other missionaries, got moved around. Now we are in a trio! It is still Elder Schenk and I and now we have Elder Grow. He is from Grantsville, Utah and actually came out with Elder Schenk. It is pretty interesting having three guys in our tiny apartment...we are pretty crammed but hey it's pretty fun so no complaining here.
     On Sunday we went to church and I was pretty tired. I almost fell asleep in sacrament meeting but I made it! Gospel Principles class was really good today though. We talked about the Creation. It was interesting to see how much eternal families are actually incorporated into the creation. It was just a really good class. I love how important families are in the gospel, I mean it is the most important unit here on earth. Families are Forever! Speaking of families, happy anniversary to my parents! You're the best! Well I hope everyone has a good week and thanks for all the support!
