It's been a great week! We did service on Thursday with the whole zone. The stake relief society president organized a service project with the local Quaker organization and we built a play ground for some Vietnamese refugees. They fled here because they were persecuted for being Christian by their government. Now there's a ton of them living in the Greensboro area and a few members in the Colfax Ward sponsored some of them to come over here and get jobs. It was pretty fun and I got to hang out with Elder Andersen, my second companion, as well as a all the other elders in my zone.
On Tuesday we had MLC in Charlotte. It was a huge technology training. they tested it out in the Arizona Tempe mission and now our mission is the second mission to try it out. We're doing things like group chats with both investigators and members at the same time and there were Skype call lessons. It was a pretty neat training. I got to see Elder Glavin and Elder Peterson and Elder Clarke and Elder Blanco. We car pooled down there with Greensboro and Winston and on the way back we stopped at this bbq place and got these ice cream sundaes that were huge. Like for real I almost finished it and then felt like dying.
On Friday we had zone meeting. We pretty much just trained everyone on the stuff we learned in MLC. Our mission had 37 baptisms last month, which is an all time high, so we threw everyone a surprise breakfast. It was great, everyone was like whhaaaa?!? And then we had pancakes.
Yesterday Shirley came to church, she's on fire right now. She even got up in testimony meeting and bore her testimony. She was telling us how she's having her family have family scripture study and everything! Her kids are doing a lot better so hopefully we'll have the whole family baptized on the 20th, which I'm obviously super
This up coming week is going to be super busy. I'm going on a double exchange two days in a row, and we've got zone conference, so pray I make it through.
Today we played volleyball and basketball and ultimate ball at the church. I'm super tired now.
Alright, I've actually got pictures for you this week. Peace out!
