Seems like last week I got an email saying Cody was getting ready for Lacrosse season conditioning and now this week Lacrosse season is finished and Varsity continues in the playoffs.
Well we had a great week, we had a fun multizone activity where we all played football (soccer) then ultimate frisbee at some sports complex on Monday. After, we went with one of our districts and we drove to Costco since my companion got a membership there and we had some good cheap greasy pizza and bought some things we needed.. It's cool to be driving missionaries- maybe I'll come home fat from all the fresh baked cookies we get and the dinner appointments every evening, like Monday's Family home evening with some recent converts we had.
On Tuesday morning we were invited to our ward mission leaders house and he made some waffles with fresh strawberries and banana on top with whipped cream and syrup with chocolate milk and we had a good meeting with him then in the evening after some powerful member present lessons we went over to the Bishops house and had BBQ ribs that were soo good with pulled pork sandwiches on the side. Then we had cheesecake for dessert and the family only wanted a little and they gave us the half that was left over (after we ate a lot and were full) to take home so we ate it for lunch on Wednesday. So Weds-- in the morning before our daily studies we drove to the gym, then came home and made protein shakes and were feeling good and healthy then before driving to our area we ate the rest of the cheesecake. We had some appointments then drove to District Meeting after that.
Haha well maybe I fooled you, maybe not. Just mixing up the normal weekly email. None of those things have happened on my mission and it seems because where I am none of those things will ever happen. But all is well!
As for this week, Tuesday we flew to Nairobi, Kenya for Mission Leadership Council (MLC) and it was amazing we didn't miss the flight, but one thing I need to mention is how much the Lord helps with missionaries traveling.
But those stories are for another time. But we made the flight and it was good to meet up with all the leaders of the mission. The Christensen's fed us dinner, then Wednesday bright and early was MLC.
I feel like MLC went great, it was good to be with the mission leaders counseling on the things we can work on to best help everyone.
My companion and I are in the midst of planning Zone Training Meeting (ZTM) for this week and all should go well with that and forwarding the information on.
My companion and I are doing fantastic. We were able to have some great lessons this week and are looking forward to some baptisms scheduled for the 7th of June!
The 2 sisters who were coming to Church when we thought they were members- Francisca and Almelda- are progressing well, along with Joseph who is about 25 years old, a referral who stays really close to members and knew members before he even came to the Church.
And yesterday we had a young man about 18 years old at church and I talked with him- turns out he used to come to the Church when he was in Primary with a relative and hasn't been back since but he wants to be a Member and come back to the Church, so we have an appointment set with him tomorrow afternoon and we will see how things go. There are many small miracles and blessings the Lord is giving to my companion and I.
I will send pictures next week.. the 2 attached are from MLC
