Happy 4th of July!

Waiting for the truck at the shop
     Heyo everybody! It's the 4th of July and I've got a lot of things to do on America'a birthday so this might be a shorter email. I hope you all had a great week this week though.
     On Monday morning we helped the Burke elders with some service, we moved a members things from inside the house to outside. They are moving to Rigby and the truck was supposed to be there early, but it ended up not being there when we were, so we just moved everything outside. Then we had our zone activity at Burke Lake. We had a BBQ and played sand volleyball. It was pretty fun.
     Tuesday we had district meeting and it was about our calling as missionaries. It was pretty good and there were some good reminders. After lunch we went to the office to help a sister who is having problems with her tablet and then we started getting things ready for when the Woodbridge Zone comes back into our mission this week. It was part of our mission about three years ago and got sent to the Richmond Mission, but we are getting it back now. We took the truck into the shop and when we went to pick it up they were closed.
     Wednesday we picked up the truck and went to the office to do some work there and then we took some beds to some sisters. We took a bed to the Braddock sisters for exchanges and one to the Kingstowne sisters because hey are in a trio now. After dinner we went down to Ft. Belvoir and I got to see the Kough's! Woo hoo! They're the best. 
Got to see the Kough's!

     Thursday we did more work in the office to get ready for Woodbridge and help the senior couples with anything. Then we took a table to the Mt. Vernon Zone Leader's apartment but it was locked so I climbed the balcony and got in that way. We took the table up and then traded a desk they had out. When we were done with that we took a box spring up to Tysons.
     Friday we spent the afternoon in the office redoing the key indicator reporting document and that took forever. It was a bunch of redoing formulas and making sure everything will work so they can report numbers this Sunday. We only got it done for the month of July too so we have to do it for the rest of the year eventually. After dinner we went to Centreville to see if the new projector we got will work with the distance we use it at, it worked so that's good.
     Saturday we spent the afternoon helping the Andersen's (senior couple) move furniture from one apartment to another. We were getting an apartment ready for a new senior couple that's coming into the mission at the end of this month. The Burke elders helped with that so that made things a little easier. After that Elder Rammell had to fix some iPad screens so we went to the office so he could do that.
     Sunday was Fast and Testimony meeting and that was really good. I really enjoy hearing other people's testimonies, it helps me a lot. Our lesson in Sunday school was good too it was about our Heavenly Family. After church we had dinner at the Payton's, who are sweet.
     Well that was my week for the most part. Happy 4th of July!! Confetti ballParty popper I hope y'all have a great day and remember what we are celebrating for. America is awesome! Have a great day and have fun with some fireworks.     ~ Elder Brady
Found my happy place!
