So Wednesday. We went to the zoo. Lots of animals. Most were inside though so that wasn't fun. One of the elders. Elder Texas Brown was so excited to see flamingos... and they were shipped out of town for the season. He was very upset 'til he saw the hippo then he was ok. So if you are traveling through Toledo, I recommend the zoo
Thursday, we did our good old service as always. We're starting to really impress the workers there. We're their most reliable source of service. We're so close to getting some of them to be interested. They start asking questions. After that, we had another exchange the Toledo 2nd elders. Elder Burton and Elder Parrah. I went with elder Parrah. I actually came out with Elder Parrah. He's from the Dominican Republic, super funny kid. We talked all day about the culture. And what not. Then I cooked all 4 of us dinner. Thank you mama for teaching me the basics!!! We then finished the night knocking some doors. Now that it's light outside again and some hot chocolate.
Friday, we finished the exchange. And sent them on their way. We then finished the day knocking on doors and adding records to the phone. Kinda boring day. 'Til the nighttime came. We then had 6 elders in an apartment. We cooked some breakfast the night before to prepare us for the next morning. And " we went to bed" there was a car alarm going off all night, some of us slept others didn't.
Saturday. Next morning, if you can call it that, we got up at 4am to get ready to hit the road at 6am. To drive all the way to Cleveland for an all mission meeting. Where we had the chance to be instructed by Elder Christofferson of the Quorum of the 12 and Elder Nelson of the 70 from the missionary department. It as super awesome!!! You can't really see me In the photo. I had a big Polynesian in my way. We then drove home. By the way, Elder Klunker was the smallest at 5'10" then it was me... yeah nice and cramped in a truck. Drove back and we took a quick nap to get on our feet and off to work. Knocked doors. Then we had a lesson with the Brockways again. Daytona is in fire, Michael meh. We taught about obedience and prayer and scripture study, how it is very important to do it daily. Then you guessed it... records.
Sunday was even crazier... because not only did we see Elder Christofferson for some reason he went to our ward for sacrament meeting... yeah super awesome! We had so many people show up. All of the people we were hoping for showed up. And I got to bless the sacrament which went great. The entire sacrament meeting was great 'til after... So Elder Christofferson left and we had our regular classes but we were combined with another ward so they taught the gospel principles class... And it was on the law of chastity. More like everyone's opinion. Our investigators actually left the class... yeah not good luckily we taught them the same night and fixed everything.
Monday. Good old District meeting. After we did knocking and some Facebook finding. Not sure how to do that quite yet. But I'll figure it out. We're trying to figure out all the bugs before every One else does. We then did some finding and off to dinner. The Brockways actually fed us, super sweet. Except funny thing is we planned on teaching the word of wisdom. It was rough one but we are working on it. Slowly but surely.
Yesterday, Tuesday was probably the first normal day I've had in a long time...it was boring sadly. Yeah not much happened.
Today same old p day was usual. Shopping and washing and cleaning. And emailing. Except now it's a lot easier.
Well hope everyone else has a great week with it ups and downs. This one surely has been one of those weeks for me. Love you all!!
