Had a pretty good week and had some awesome experiences! I hope you all did too.
Monday morning we went to breakfast at IHOP with a bunch of missionaries that were going home Thursday. Then we emailed and went shopping. When we got back to our apartment I helped Elder Harper wash their car because we didn't have anything else to do. After that we went to the other elder's leasing office and played pool and foosball and just hung out. Elder Harper, Elder Gledhill and I left and took some cool/funny videos on his GoPro, it was pretty fun. After that we went with a bunch of the elders and watched Elder Richards burn a suit because he's going home, it was awesome!
Paintinggggg!Tuesday we had district meeting combined with the other Wednesday. While he was packing I was cleaning a little trying to make the apartment look nice, it's pretty hard sometimes ha. Then we went to the Meng's and taught some English and it was fun like always, they're just awesome. Before dinner we helped Jon Canigiani finish up the book shelves he was working and then they fed us. district again and we played jeopardy. After lunch we did some service all afternoon, we helped paint a house! It was super fun. We were with Elder Harper and Elder Rice in the evening and we went to the church and had a big Nerf war with the youth in their ward. (Elder Merrill was in heaven) It was way fun plus there was a knarly storm, it was crazy.We found out Elder Merrill was leaving so he packed pretty much all day Wednesday. While he was packing I was cleaning a little trying to make the apartment look nice, it's pretty hard sometimes ha. Then we went to the Meng's and taught some English and it was fun like always, they're just awesome. Before dinner we helped Jon Canigiani finish up the book shelves he was working and then they fed us.Thursday was transfers, Elder Merrill left and my new companion is Elder Cook. He is from Vernal Utah and this is his last transfer so it's kind of crazy. He's way cool and we get along great so it's way nice. We went to the Canigiani's so they could be the first to meet him and they fed us again. They are way sweet.Friday we did some service, we helped this non-member lady with yard work and worked on her car. She fed us and then taught us a little bit on how to be good at pool haha. She's pretty cool. In the evening we went to the basketball courts and did some basketball tracting which was sweet. We be like the dream team, except I'm short and he's tall. Ain't no thing.
Saturday we went back to Wakefield, my last area, for a baptism. Two young kids I taught, Jesse and Christopher got baptized and there was Lucy Cabatingan that got baptized as well so it was a triple baptism! It was super awesome and I'm so glad I got to go back and see it. When we got back we went straight to Stake Conference and that took up the rest of the night.Sunday we had Stake Conference in the morning. We met with the sisters in our Ward, yeah now there are sisters instead of just us elders, because they are both new to the area and didn't know what to do or who to see. We had dinner at the Gomez's and it was great, they are a sweet family. Sister Gomez is hilarious!All together it was a purty good week and it will be a great transfer!I hope everyone has a great 4th of July and does something fun! Miss Y'all.~ Elder Brady
