On Saturday we, along with about 70 other missionaries, attended a
service project called Peoria Pride. The city organized the project
where they pick one street in the city and all the volunteers work on
all the houses to make them look good. I painted all the trim on a
house. It was taking me quite a while to go up, paint, go down, move
the ladder and repeat. That is until Elder Amyda shimmied up there and
just painted with two limbs hanging off the roof. So many things that
we can learn from the Zone leader.
This week we had the baptismal interview for Joseph Y. He is a
youth of a returning less active family. We have been working with
them for a long time so we are really excited. Elder Clough will get
to come back for to the area for the baptism so that will be cool. It
will be on Sunday.
Today a sister from one of the English wards (shout out Sister Bosen- I
know you are reading this) took a few missionaries a spring training
game for the mariners. The ballpark is probably less than 5 minutes
away from our house. It was a lot of fun, despite being cold and wet.
I feel like one of the benefits to serving in Arizona should be a lack
of rain, but I don’t make the rules.
This transfer the zone already has more than one baptism per
companionship which means that sometime soon president will be taking
us to the temple. We are all super excited for that.
I’m telling you worrying about peoples’ salvation is exhausting. Why can’t they just come to church and love all the commandments already? Is it that hard!?
Thanks for all your emails! I will let you know how the baptism goes next week!
