This was a pretty jam packed week, we had MLT, District Training, and exchanges.
Monday night we loaded up the DL's in the mini van and headed for Kingwood. We stopped at Buccees, which is the biggest gas station youve ever seen. its probably got 70 or 80 gas pumps and the bathrooms are ginormous. its definitely a Texas sized gas station. I love the south
MLT on Tuesday was pretty good, nothing too crazy happened. President Hewlett talked about the significance of the first vision and how the world just going to get worse and more nasty before the second coming. Its kind of scary how the work is hastening and the "great and terrible day of the Lord" is coming closer. We talked a lot about the new book the Saints. We talked about the previous history of the churches by Joseph Smith and B. H. Roberts and the significance that they are releasing another one in narrative form. The book is very good and captivating i would encourage all of you to start reading it if you haven't yet. I think its only 5 bucks on the LDS store so thats definitely worth it. Its also on the gospel library app. Ive learned a ton about church history. Im excited to have people try and confound me so i can expound the scriptures unto them and bring them to the knowledge of the truth. :)
District Training was fun we got to go from Beaumont to Woodville in one day and see the whole zone :) its a good time, kinda stressful but a good time.
I went on exchanges to Woodville and trio'd it up with Elder Mickelson and Elder Olsen! We went to this really pretty lake with a little community around it called Ivanhoe. i wish i would have taken a picture but i forgot. it reminded me of Rockport just not in a mountain. :(
I spoke in the YSA this week and i was the closing speaker. It only ended up needing to be about 10 minutes long so i just free balled it. My brain shuts off as soon as i get up to the pulpit, i couldnt even remember where the BoM talked about the Fall of Adam and Eve :( its 2Nephi 2 by the way. I want to be a much better speaker than i am.
Every week gets faster and faster and this next one is not going to be any exception.
The mission is flying by, but i love it :)
Love you all! Have a good week
