Tuesday I went on an exchange with Elder Tueller (zone
leader) down in Sarasota. SO FUN! Finally got to meet all new people
and a new area I've never worked in. Oh it was nice. We taught a Hindu
indian woman and she told me how to get rid of a stomach ache by
pinching my hand in a certain spot. Then we taught a lady who was
baptized in December and is crazy in love with the church. Her husband was in Newsies! He's the guy
in the boxing scene that gets punched in the face! Cool stuff. And then
the next morning we went and did a quick lesson 1 with some new
investigators for them and set two baptism dates!
Then we started teaching some new people! One is a cousin of Alex
and Neftaly. We taught him lessons 1 and 2 so far. he likes them and
says they just make sense. Then there is Esmerelda and she has like 5 little siblings and just her mom.
So we're going to try to get the whole family into it and that would be
so nice to add another huge family with tons of little kids and youth to
the branch! So we're working with them, and they love us, who
wouldn't?, so they always want us to come back. (P.S. I learned with
them that throwing a kitchen knife into a tree is actually really
But then Saturday came. We went to a party at Myakka state park down in Sarasota. Sweet park! Totally forgot
my camera! LAME. But they had a ton of food, two giant blow up water
slide things for all the kids and a bounce house and blasting music, and we played soccer! First time on my
mission playing soccer with Hispanics! It was fetching intense. First
time I've like ever actually played a real game of soccer. I totally did
awesome. And sweated beyond compare and got a sick awesome burn/tan!
Way way fun to play with all older men that want to relive their glory
days and the little kids who are as good as the pros.
But yeah that's about all that's happened this week! Keep up the awesomeness and spirituality of awesomeness! Good
luck this week!
