Well this week was a really good one. We had ZLC (zone leader council) on tuesday and I really enjoyed the topics that we talked about. One, was the skill of listening and how it is so important as a missionary but unfortunately I feel like its one of those skills that needs to be worked on. And then to top it off, we had a great training on the Book of Mormon. Wednesday morning we went up to the Visitors' Center with the Mireles. It was so awesome. We watched that family video that talks about our view on the family, and how they are eternal, they really enjoyed that. Then afterwards we went on a temple tour with them, where we walked around the temple, and stop at different places and talking about relevant subjects. The spirit was super powerful and we took a picture of them by the front doors and commited them to be sealed in a year. The rest of the week was kinda a blur. We didn't get a chance to see the Mireles because there kids had the flu or something. We did the regular stuff for the week. We went to a baptism this Saturday of one of the companionships in our zone. It was really kewl because I was able to have dinner with this family and teach them on exchanges once. Sunday morning was and interesting one, because Elder Hardman and I had to be up at 4 so that we could get ready and drive to a stake report meeting that we had. It was super early but turned out really good. Then after that we raced back to our area so that we could make it on time to our ward council meeting. That also turned out well because, when we starting talking about the Mireles, everyone started saying that they had seen them that week, and the bishop had already been in contact with them. So that is good to see the ward just reaching out to them and trying to get them intergrated in the ward. After church we were able to stop by and see the Mireles, who unfortunately couldn't make it to church because of prior commitments. We had a good lesson with them about the Plan of Salvation, and we should be seeing them some more this week. We also went to the Departing Missionary Fireside, where the missionaries who are going home on Wednesday, give their last testimonies for all the members and investigators who come to see them. It was good, we had 12 missionaries going home, and so it was a big group. Today for the last P-day of the transfer we went up to President Chen's house. He is a member down here in Palos Verdes, and lives in this huge house, so once a transfer we get to go and just have fun. He has tennis courts, ping pong, billiards table, and a bowling alley. So we did some of that and then had lunch. Super fun.
So what has been going on back home? It is super weird to hear that the stake presidency changed, and that now our Bishopric will be changing as well. Well I wish the best for all those with new callings, and I know that who the Lord calls the Lord qualifies. Its one of those things that I have seen on my mission, that when there is something new to accomplish, or a new assignment the Lord always helps us to fulfill our duties. What else is new? Keyton? Bryson? Brayden? Hope that all is going well and that everyone is enjoying life, even though sometimes we have struggles. Mom & Dad, what is happening? How is my car holding up? Is it still amazing? Oh and is someone washing it every Saturday? Hhaha. Everytime I was the mission car, I think of saturdays with my car. Those were the days. Well I don't have to much more to say. And my time is close to an end. Hope all is well. By the way, what is happening with Josh?
