So I’m writing this in like no time at all. We got a new solid investigator. He is just out of juvie and attended the LDS services there. He called us over while we were walking by. Jesse is a pretty cool kid and is super interested by the Atonement. We took Mark to Sacrament and he joined us in a fast. Mark is diabetic so we had fruit snacks and stuff prepped in our bags but he had some awesome faith going in. He just said I’m doing this for God so nothing will happen. I really hope he commits. He's such an awesome guy and he's pretty enthusiastic about the Book of Mormon.
We had zone training this week, and it was pretty awesome. We talked about desire mostly and overcoming our natural tendencies to serve with 100% conviction. So at the end we all wrote down something we wanted to let go of and tied them to some balloons and released them. I think it was supposed to be like the Anti-Nephi-Lehis but in reverse. Instead of putting them under the earth we sent them over.
This week had one of the most special and near to my heart events of my mission.... A&W was giving away free root beer floats. Anyway, aside from that we also had a picnic with the Gwen ward. We spent the morning handing out flyers and kids from around the neighborhood started taking them and running around telling all their friends about it, so there was an awesome turn out. The big draw was a zip line and a hundred foot slip and slide. One of the best parts was that we had an investigator family show up (well the mom is less active). They came and the kids made a ton of friends and got along great with the ward.
All and all this week was pretty great and I hope you all have an awesome week!
