Two Weeks in Sterling July 25, 2016

Friends and family!

How's everyone doing this fine week?! Life is good here just super hot
and super humid. I swear Satan is giving me a hug every time I leave
the house cause it's that fetchin hot! But the work goes on! We are on
bike and it's such an adventure haha. Three missionaries on bikes
calls for some shenanigans. Elder King almost killed himself while
trying to hop a double curve yesterday hahahah his week was pretty
good though. Last Monday we went to the mall and played some hardcore
basketball. I loved every minute of it! Our mission is so good at
basketball it's crazy. Sometimes it gets a little heated. That night
we had a lesson with our most progressing investigator Syd! He is a
stud. We talked about lesson 3 the gospel of Jesus Christ. Syd is from
Iran and converted to Christianity when he came here. We love working
with Syd he is such a humble guy. He drive school busses for special
needs kids and works at a piano store in the mall. Such a smart and
humble man. The lessons are always so spiritual. Tuesday was a super
good day though. I taught my first district meeting since September of
last year. I enjoy being a district leader more than a zone leader. We
talked about setting goals and having faith to push us to achieve
goals. When we set goals in faith we access the potential that
Heavenly Father has for us! So cool! We ate lunch at one of my
favorite places called Caroline bros. it's mighty good missionaries
eat free. Then we went to a inactives house and taught them while
filling up water balloons for a birthday party haha we were in church
clothes and just soaking wet. But it was a good time. Wednesday we
taught this African guy named John. We he works at this African store
in the mall and was totally high on something. He kept asking elder
King "boy what's in your stomach?" Haha later that day we helped a
part member family move out to Haymarket. The non member is named
Dave. He is so sick! We love spending time with him. Thursday we had
zone conference and talked about the role of the spirit in our
conversion. I love being with president and sister huntsman. They are
the greatest! We had exchanges with the Zone leaders after conference
and had a blast out tracting. We met this cool Hispanic family. They
showed me Pokemon go. It was sick. We had another spiritual lesson
with Syd. We talked about baptism he said he isn't ready but I know he
is. He offered one of the most humble prayers I've ever heard. Such a
spiritual moment for me... I can't even describe it. Friday we weekly
planned it was boring and Taught s less active named Eric. He was
cool. Saturday we taught a recent convert Danny. He is sick. Sunday we
had a great time at church. Syd came and everyone loves him! It was
awesome. It was so hot outside though..we were dying. All in all this
was a great week! Love you all!!
