This week some good stuff happened. First off, well nothing exciting happened until Wednesday. on Wednesday we got us a pet! He was a tree frog and we named him Pierre. ( Obviously he's French ) When we went out for the evening we came back and he was gone! We found him just
chillin' in our laundry room like a boss. It also has been raining a lot but sometimes it's not really a rain but more of a mist. So it's great, we get a shower on the go. Whoop whoop!
On Thursday when we went to Maxwell's Esther was being hilarious. She let me do her hair in a Mohawk, but Gad didn't like it. Esther also started calling me "uncle" haha so ya.
Friday night Elder Seely and I had a little more free time than usual coming home so we decided to make dumb little videos. Mostly of us messing around on our bikes. He ended up doing "The Titanic" down Pole Road which is this long road in front of our place. At the apartment we have been playing some pretty serious games. Muffin, Blow Dart, and Batman! They are all stupid. Haha but fun, the best ones are Blow Dart and Batman. In Blow Dart you look someone in the eye and act like you shoot them, if they're looking you in the eye when you shoot them they are hit and have to fall over like they have been hit with a tranquilizer dart. (We played it in church on Sunday) haha it's dumb but fun. In Batman you have to be looking in the eyes again but this time you put your hands up to your face like you're batman and if they look you in the eye they have to touch a knee to the ground. We play that one everywhere.
Saturday was a big day. Sando Tagalm got baptized! He's from Ghana and is 23. Sando has only been in the U.S. For a little over a month but was so ready. He's the first investigator I've taught that has gotten baptized and it was awesome!! Elder Seely baptized him and I gave a talk on the Holy Ghost. It was so cool seeing someone I taught make the decision to get baptized and change their life.
Sunday Sando got confirmed and I got to stand in on that. Coming home late at night we came across a homeless guy. A HIGH, homeless guy, named Chucky. It was interesting, pretty sketch too. After we finished talking to him he wanted a hug from both of us..... Weird. Oh well hope it made his night a little better.
We also played the World Cup in our apartment. We have this little rubber soccer ball and we decided to play soccer. Some intense soccer. It was crazy! The ball was all over the place and rocketing into us all the time. It was so fun though! We are lucky nothing broke I guess but you don't think about that, it makes it less fun.
Love you all,
