Marriot Ranch!!

Elder Brady & Elder Overstreet
     Hey everybody I hope you guys all had a good week! My week was pretty good, and crazy, and fun but it was a good week. I was only in my area about half of the week, so it was a little bit of different week, but it's good to shake things up a bit, keeps things interesting. Here are some highlights from the week.
     Well we had some good lessons and then we had some not so good lessons. One lesson we had with Harry and Delaine turned into being a question and answer session on things that sometimes didn't even seem connected with the gospel. Harry can definitely come up with some crazy things, but also things that can make you think. They are a nice couple though and I enjoy going over there.
Elder Kerr & Elder Brady headed to the
Marriot Ranch
     The first half of the week wasn't all that crazy or different, but the second half is when it started. Thursday I went on an exchange with our district leader, Elder Black. We did a lot of tracting and saw a part-member family, then we met with an investigator and his drunk dad, that was interesting. The dad wouldn't stop talking and didn't make sense most of the time, but nothing much we could do, we tried just talking to his son, but he would always interrupt us and go off forever on things, so we just ended up leaving as soon as we could.
     Saturday I went on another exchange, but this time it was with Elder Kerr on a special assignment. We got to travel outside of the mission, to the Marriott Ranch Picnic for ambassadors and diplomats and teach them how to rope! It was sweet! Elder Kerr and I were in heaven, we got to rope a couple of roping dummies all day and teach people and their kids how to rope. Two guys that were helping with the "Roping Station" said Elder Kerr and I were the best they've had at that picnic in years, so that was cool. It was way fun and even though it was a non proselyting event almost always the mission, or gospel came up in the conversations somehow. There was people from all over the world and it was just super cool, they were all way nice and having a good time. It was a great day, Elder Kerr and I didn't want to leave the ranch.
     I hope y'all have a great week this week and do something awesome! We each have a light of our own that we possess and that we should let shine for ones to see. Go out and share the light that you have with someone, so that their lives can be changed for the better! Oh and shout-out to my little sister, Natasha, it's her birthday on Wednesday! Happy Birthday!!
