This week was good and it went by really fast. sounds like yalls week was great. im glad alyvias birthday party turned out well, i forgot it was her birthday, cause on that calender you sen tme last year it had all the birthdays and everything so if you could send me out another calsender, that would be fantastic. Give alyvia a hug for me. and thats a good thing dad took a day off to hang out with grandma and grandpa. tell them hi for me too. i miss them.
so this week we met a ton of the less actives, got stuck in the rain. again, esplin called me at 1 in the morning, deep cleaned a peanut butter factory, got yelled at by and old man that called the sheriff on us, met a new family we're teaching now, taught Anthony and his whole family, met a lady that traced her family history back to Adam, 5 different ways. it was a pretty good week.
A family in the ward told us about their friends and about the son doing scouts so we went and stopped by to meet them and they are really nice. i guess the mom had come to church a couple time a year ago and the son Sterling wants to get his eagle scout so me and elder ward are going over to Sterling's twice a week after school and helping him with scouts. He came with us to scouts on wednesday and he said he liked it a lot so im excited for that. while we were looking for their house (the adams house) we walked up to a guy to ask him if he knew where a street was and this was a guy that threatned to call the sheriff on us. he freaked out on us. i jsut started laughing while he was freaking out but it was funny i thought. then later that afternoon we got stuck out in the rain on our bikes again so we found the bridge we sit under while it rains haha.
So the story about Esplin, He called me at 1 in the morning (12 his time) to tell me he got his first kiss. He had never kissed a girl adn i told him that when he got his first kiss that he needs to call me so he did haha. He was as excited as a fat kid in a candy store. He is doing well back home and working lots it sounds like. On wednesday we got to go to the church's peanut butter factory, i guess its the only peanut butter factory the church owns and its right next to our mission office but we got to go and deep clean everything in it. i was on the steam pressure washer washing everything. so with Anthony, we taught him this week with a recent convert in the ward (Kardaryl) and so both of them are black so we both thought it would be a good idea to take kardaryl with us. the lesson went alright. Kardaryl was so excited to teach with us and so he was jsut talking away about everything haha. i wasnt even upset cause anthony was getting it all, Kardayl was speaking his language or something. But we went over again on saturday night just to say hi and met the rest of his family. He has 3 boys and his fiance is living with him and when we stopped by saturday night Anthony wasnt home but his fiance Lola was. Lola said that Anthony really enjoyed us coming over and we had planned to go over tuesday afternoon but Lola wanted to be there so we're planning Tuesday night teaching the whole family. the ward is doing good and im enjoying them. they sure keep us fed haha
well everything is going great, we have a few meetings this week but all is well. Our fast and testimony meeting was interesting yesterday haha glad to hear yours was good. all is well here. hope yall have a good week this week. love you all.
