Nerf Wars

Hello hello!

How is everyone this week! Kari Kari I hope that you are adjusting to
living in the good old U.S. Of A baby!!! This week was pretty good we were actually pretty busy! It went by fast! We met with a lot of people this week! After pdaylast week we had a lesson with this guy named Ernesto...he knows the bible quite was terrible and
the spirit was not in that lesson because he just wanted to bash with us. Oh well it's all good! Tuesday we had exchanges and I was with Elder Yeager from the Centerville area ! He is a new missionary so I
had the privilege to train him it was awesome! He kept doing this weird robot dance hahah it was weird...hahaha. We also zone training
with Elder Blanchard and I had to train the zone on one of the fundamentals from preach my gospel. I was so nervous!!! Ahhhhh! But it
went great! We talked about Enos and how when we understand the atonement it makes us want to share it with others. Wednesday we had the chance to teach Christopher Fuentes the Plan of Salvation it was
such a great time and he is so smart! He is only 9 years old but he laid out the entire plan of salvation and told us step by step what happens!! It was so crazy! We had the chance to go on exchanges with the assistants which meant I got to go with Elder Adair
my trainer! It was so sweet! We had to do some young single adult tracting and contacting! It was pretty crazy! We went on to the campus of George Mason and also nova! Darn it was so crazy! People were not
very nice to us!!  The next day was a good day we weekly planned and we taught this really cool Brazilian lady who makes that weird cheese
bread that you and Keith like momma j! It was pretty cool hearing Portuguese again! We also had a less active come over to our house and patch a hole in our wall from past missionaries. His name is brother
Rodrigues and he is a stud he doesn't really like missionaries but he seems to be opening up to us so that is pretty cool! I'm glad that he
is making progress! We had the chance to teach Josh Moore and he is so great we were teaching him how the Book of Mormon and the
bible go together! It was an awesome lesson! Sunday was great we had
an excellent fast and testimony meeting and a member in our ward gave the greatest testimony I had ever heard. Then we got to spend the
third hour with the deacons quorum teaching them about service. That night we had a powerful lesson with Ronnie who is a less active and thinks that God is being unfair to him. I felt so great coming out of
that lesson I learned so much. Ronnie had just been released from prison on false charges and was not treated fairly in prison. But we taught him about when Joseph smith was in Liberty jail and the
hardships that he went through. Wow it was great. This week was pretty good! We also had our zone activity today and we had nerf wars at the
church:) it was a lot of fun!! I hope that you all have a great week
and I miss you all very much!! Love ya!!
