|At the Dulles Air and Space Museum|
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!

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

and he does Battle of the Nations. It's like
old school fighting, way cool! Reminded
me of the movie, "A Knight's Tale".
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!
