This last week was CRAZY! It feels like we had stuff going on every day!
We had zone training meeting on Wednesday! All the days leading up to that we were preparing for that and doing visits. It went really well! Sister Thomas came to it and she enjoyed it. Right after we had interviews with President.
Wednesday night we got a call from some elders asking for a blessing. Elder Gull and I felt like it would be good to take them out for some ice cream and talk for a bit. We felt like Chick-Fil-A was the place to be. It just so happened that Calvary Bible College was doing a fund raiser for a mission they are going on soon. We were a little nervous because sometimes members of Calvary like to bash... And half of Chick-Fil-A was just straight Calvary Students! Everyone was looking at us when we walked in. We sat down in the corner and after a few minutes 2 girls came up and asked us what we believed... WE thought we were about to get bashed. However, we ended up talking to them for a good 30 minutes. I told them to check out the Easter Video and gave them a pass along card with our number on it. The next morning I got a text from one of them asking for a Book of Mormon!!! So we dropped that off to her and she asked if we could meet sometime to answer more of her questions!
Wednesday night we also exchanged with the AP's. I was with Elder Higginson. It was great! We taught Lawrence, a less active recent convert and he opened up with us about some things he's struggling with. We are hoping to meet with him weekly and help him get back on track. We also taught Renn, another LA/RC. She is a senior in high school, but 19 and doesn't go to Young Women's, so she is going to start coming to the YSA.
Friday we had quite the day! We heard tons of sirens and saw there was a car crash, so we decided to check it out. We parked by this complex and walked down this gutter down to the crash. Along the way there was a coyote!! Elder Gull got a sweet picture with it! We got to the crash and we ended up regretting it... A motorcycle hit a car and the motorcyclist didn't make it... Not a pretty sight...
Saturday we had adult session of conference and lots of service. We helped the Bowens move a bed. They live in the Chaparral Ward and their 13 year old son is not a member, but they want Elders to teach him. So we've been working with him.
Sunday we had Stake Conference. We sat by our investigator Lydia. It was her birthday. We gave her a mini statue of Christ and a personal Hymn book. Her fellowshipper got Lydia her own set of scriptures with her name engraven on them! She was so excited about it!!! We have a lesson with her this week. We later found out our mission President talked to her after and he told us that she was excited to get baptized!!!
Sunday night we had dinner at our Bishops. He invited his neighbors across the street! Bri and Garret. He's a marine and she is a volleyball coach. We shared the Easter video and they loved it! We are going to try to stop by again and see how they're doing!
Today for P-Day I went to Pauba District activity. We went to the driving range at the golf course! Later we are making shirts with the Meadowview District.
Things are really starting to pick up for us! We are super excited!
I love you all! Have a great week and a Happy Easter!!!
