Last P-day our zone went to the zoo for an activity. I forgot how fun the zoo was. The best part was I lost a bet and had to go on a little camel ride. . . so worth it!! haha. Anyway I will post pictures below.
Update on the week. We have been teaching a few people but mainly it has been J. So his story is way cool and he is doing really great and loving the church. A couple of weeks ago we received a referral for him. He actually requested for us to come by himself. Elder Goldstrohm and I went by and taught him that week and it went great. He had ordered us pizza so that was a bonus. Then we brought a member of our ward Brother Torella to come with us and that lesson went better than the first. It was a very spiritual lesson and at the end both the ward member and J were hugging because they just connected so well. It was like an immediate friendship. Well J has come to church and loved it and told us he wants to be baptized on the 3rd of September. He is a great guy and really gets along with a lot of the ward members. This reminds me of a quote that I read the other day from President Hinckley. He said that every new convert needs: "A friend in the Church to whom he can constantly turn, who will walk beside him, who will answer his questions, who will understand his problems." It is so true being a new member of the church can be hard because there are a lot of different things in the church and it is like learning a whole new language but a friend in the church can really be a positive thing for these new and returning members.
Love you all and hope you have a great week!
