Training/district leader week 1


Hey hey friends and family!! Hope you are all having just a stellar week!! This week has been pretty sweet!!!  This week was pretty dope!!! Elder Lee and I went to the temple last week it was so awesome!! I ran into somebody who knows grandpa Richard! Crazy huh!? On Wednesday we had a Lesson with a guy named Tony! We put him on date for August 30th so please pray for him!!! I'm so excited!! He is pretty prepared!! This week was crazy! Thursday was transfers! I was pretty excited about getting to meet my trainee for the first time! He is such a boss!! His name is Elder Snow and he is from a little town in California called Loomis right outside of Sacramento!!! He is such a stud! He came out already trained basically! I know that he is going to be a super super good missionary! We are having a great time! This week after transfers was pretty crazy it was my first time leading out the area which meant I was in charge of weekly planning it was so crazy.... I was pretty darn nervous!! Oh, Elder Snows first night in the field we put Kingsley on date to be baptized!!!!!!  Isn't that pretty sweet? He is so prepared he actually brought up the topic of baptism the last time that we were over! On Friday we weekly planned and it was good! We have been working super super hard! Knocking a lot of doors! It's pretty dope! Elder Snows first person he talked to was this crazy guy who develops weapons for the navy seals. We got into a little bit of a bash with him... I felt pretty bad but when it comes down to bashing with people just kill them with kindness! He respected us at the end but didn't want to hear our message! We have been tracting sooooo much because I want to get Elder Snow in the groove of tracting so he can keep it a trend throughout his mission! He is such a stud!! On Saturday we had a super super awesome day! The DC south and DC north missions got to go to the Nationals game! They were playing the Rockies! It was so much fun! I got to hangout with Elder King the whole day! It was basically like a second pday... And president and sister Huntsman were there! It was so much fun! Too bad that the Rockies got hammered 6-1 I was pretty upset I'm positive that I was the only missionary that was rooting for the Rockies! Everybody loves Bryce Harper here even though he is crazy inactive in the church hahah but they were yelling "go brother Harper" hahah it was hilarious! The ride home on the metro was crazy there were people everywhere we had been challenged by the zone leaders to talk to a lot of people about the church and we did a pretty good job with it! The metro here is always always crazy holy cow... People just stare at us on it too hahah I'm pretty sure somebody got Elder King and I on snapchat in the metro hahah! On Sunday we had a great day it was fun fun! We had good meetings! I'm in charge of taking Elder Snow through the twelve week program so it's pretty cool we get an extra hour to study every morning now!  On Sunday night we went to go teach an investigator named Norman! He is a stud! He has been reading from the Book of Mormon in Alma chapter 3 last night I felt the spirit so strongly testify to him that the Book of Mormon is true! It has been one of the most powerful lessons I've had on my mission.I'm pretty pumped about that! It's been a great week everyone!! Sorry this was a shorter letter!! I'll see you all next week love ya!! Also being a trainer and district leader has been such an an experience!!! It's hard work but I'm seeing so many miracles from iT!! Holy cow I love it!!!
