At the Dulles Air and Space Museum
     Well, this is a little bit of a late email, but better late then never right? Anyway, this past week has been pretty good just swamped like always. We have had some opportunities to share the Easter videos that the church just put out with some members and that is always way good. Those videos are awesome and they have something for everyone, go check them out if you haven't seen them! Go to and search for "Hallelujah Easter Initiative."
     Alright, so a little bit about my week. On Monday, we went and picked up Elder Kerr and his companion and went to the Dulles Air and Space Museum. It was my second time and it is pretty dang good. We talked Elder Chan into going on these flight simulators they had, it took us a while but we got him to do it. They were super sick! It was basically you and a buddy in a tiny cockpit having a"dogfight" trying to shoot down enemy planes. So sweet! Elder Kerr and I went twice and it was so much fun!

     Tuesday we had our Zone Training and it was pretty good. It was a lot about what we have talked about at MLC so we talked about teaching the Plan of Salvation simply and how we can keep it nice and easy for people we are teaching to understand. I like that way of teaching a lot. Later in the day, we went looking for some potentials we have in the area book and none of them opened their doors, but we saw a guy next to a playground with his kids and went and talked to him. Turns out he was one of the potentials we were looking for! So that was cool. Funny story time.....Elder Hudson and Elder Bunn were getting the mail and Elder Hudson grabbed a letter, which was for Elder Bunn, and starting running up the stairs with Elder Bunn chasing him. (The letter was from his girlfriend). Elder Hudson didn't quite make it up enough flights of stairs and busted into our downstairs neighbor's  apartment, on a sprint! He made it halfway down the hall and saw an older lady standing up off the couch looking scared....then he did a quick turnaround and yelled back over his shoulder "sorry! Wrong apartment!" It was hilarious!!
     Wednesday we went up to Alexandria to switch some beds, but we had the wrong info and didn't take everything that was needed. Whoops. After dinner we headed down to Warrenton and picked up a bunch of things from apartments down there. We didn't finish though. Ohhhh another story. We were going down to Warrenton and I was driving and I was going as fast as tiwi will let me, which is 5 over the speed limit, and next thing I know I'm getting pulled over! The cop came up and asked me what I was doing.....I was a little confused as I was only going 5 over and everyone was still passing me. Anyway turns out I was going too slow and that was illegal just like speeding was, so yeah I got pulled over for going too slow....what the heck?
     Thursday morning we went back to Warrenton and finished up everything we had to do out there. Warrenton is super sweet, it is the most "country" place in our mission and this weekend was my first time going out 
Brother Maeger has a full suit of armor
and he does Battle of the Nations. It's like
old school fighting, way cool! Reminded
me of the movie, "A Knight's Tale".
there. It was super cool. In the afternoon we went up to Reston and picked up some desks from Sonia Kough's work that they were giving away...we fit 16 in the van. Granted the legs came off on some of them but still. After that, we went back up to Arlington to get some more stuff from apartments up there. A lot of driving today, giving me practice for all the road trips I'll do I guess.
     Friday morning we had a meeting with all the office staff and then we had some work to do in the office. After we finished we ran up to Ashburn to get some furniture and stuff from apartments up there, except most of it was just garbage. Garbage boys! When we got back to Burke we picked up some dressers and a bed from some members and then set up an iPad and took it to the Centreville Stake Center to give it to the Zone Leaders because a missionary lost his.
     Saturday we spent most of the day in the office. We were going o print off a bunch of things but got stopped cold when we realized the printer was out of ink. Sister Lowe ordered some more but that put some stuff on slow down till it gets here. We went to the storage sheds to drop stuff off and two senior couples showed up and then the members we got the furniture from yesterday brought a bed so we spent some time there. In the evening, we went to Centreville and picked up a desk and a bed from the Chinese elders there.
     Sunday was good, it always is. We had an awesome lesson in Gospel Principles about the family and a bomb lesson in Elders' Quorum about the Atonement. It was so good! It was definitely one of the best lessons I've ever had. I enjoy learning about the Atonement because it never seems to get dull, it's always a touching topic and is easy to get emotional with. Anyway, it was a really good lesson and a good day at church.
     Well, I hope y'all are doing good and have a great Easter this weekend! Remember Christ in all that you do and work to become closer to him, he wants you to. Follow Jesus Christ!
