Torrey Pines Week 3 - Racin dem J-Dubs

This last week was for sure a fun one! We still aren't teaching any lessons, but we are working hard to get the members pumped about missionary work. On Monday we had our talent show for FHE. We did a little skit. I don't have pictures of it yet, but I will see if I can get some. It was a lot of fun! There is a lot of talent in our ward! 

Tuesday we had interviews with President Kendrick. Those are always great. It was good to talk to him and ask questions on how to better work in a YSA. 

Wednesday we did a lot of service. We helped this guy Matt build his house. It was good, but I don't think he is really interested in our message. 

Thursday we had our district meeting and institute. A lot of people are here from college for the summer. It was cool to see lots of new people.

Friday we went to dinner at the Leavitts. They live in The Bridges, which is a super fancy neighborhood where Phil Mickelson lives. To get to our lesson on time after dinner, we went on a dirt path over this hill below where Arnold Schwarzenegger used to live. Off roading is scary in a Corolla. We had our lesson with the Cross's. They have two YSA kids. They are just helping us so they can hear the lessons and we can keep teaching skills up. They were very hard and complicated to teach. It was really frustrating, but good. 

On Saturday we went to stop by this referral we got from Carlsbad YSA. We were walking to the front door and realized we were following Jehovah's Witnesses to the same door. We played it cool. They then went to the same door on the opposite side. They were totally trying to find the same guy as us! We hurried and texted the YSA sisters for the referrals phone number and called him while the JW's were knocking on the door. Nobody came to the door, but we set up a time to teach him next week! It was really funny walking back to our car past them and thinking, "WE WON!" 

Later Saturday we had dinner with Dallin Large. He is the coolest guy. We went to this build-your-own-pizza place. He's awesome and a great missionary. After Dallin's we went to Cameron Monahan's. Also a great guy. We started talking about ward mission stuff and then he asked if we wanted some frozen yogurt. So we talked about missionary work over some fro-yo. That's the way we like to do things here in Torrey Pines :)

Sunday was really different. We had a branch from the San Diego mission come and combine with our ward. There were lots of people there. After church we went to Michael Conners (the guy with the huge mansion I sent pictures of earlier) to watch this young singles devotional. The house was huge. While waiting for people to show up, we were walking around and looking at it. We spent 15 minutes just in the master bedroom! That picture with the mirrors I sent earlier was the bathroom... It's huge. It has a sauna and an upstairs... 

Today I had to go to a chiropractor. My back is a little messed up. Tonight we are having a Cinco De Mayo party for FHE. Should be a good time!

I have been reading a lot in the scriptures about the 17 points of Christ's true church. How great is it that we live in a time where Christ's church is on the earth today!! It's such a great feeling. I know this is the true gospel. If you don't know if it's true, do some research and then pray about it. Then you will know! :)

I love you all! Have a good week!
