So this week was pretty good!
I went on exchanges with one of the Zone Leaders. I had a pretty good time down in the Hope Mills area. We had a lot of teaching appointments. One of them was for a Recent Convert. A little background, her father lives with her and is very old and sick. A few weeks ago he went to the hospital and then came out of the hospital worse. When we went over he could not move. He could not sit up in bed. He couldn't do anything. His daughter, that we were visiting, has to carry him everywhere. She asked if we could give him a blessing right when we got there, so we did, and went on with our lesson.
We then had another lesson right after this one with a Less-Active a few doors down. We went to that appointment and as we were leaving, we got a text from the Recent Convert saying her Dad just got out of bed and in his wheel chair by himself! That was a huge testimony builder on the Power of the Priesthood and blessings!
Another fun and exciting thing that I did, that you will not believe, I ate Sushi. I had it for dinner and it was actually really good. One of the Recent Converts in the ward is from the Philippines. She made us all kinds of sushi, I even ate eel sushi! It was actually pretty good! When we got to their house for dinner and I heard we were having sushi for dinner, I was like uh oh... Looks like I'm going hungry tonight . . . But I tried it and fell in love with it! It was so good!
Elder Rawlings and I are tired of not baptizing so we made a contract with each other. We had the other elders over as witnesses when we signed it. I'll send a picture of it after this.
Umm I can't really think of anything else to say.. but that's all! Hope y'all had a great week! Love ya!
Elder Rawlings and Elder Beach
Momma Beach cried when she saw this... they are wearing their matching ties!
(I send each new companionship a matching tie.
I thought it would be a nice way to remember their time together.)
This is the contract. Yes. That is Blood.
Getting a pretty good tan line!
