I hope that all of you have had a good week! I know that I have. It's been a little busy and unusually tiring but pretty fun and productive.
On Tuesday I had exchanges with the other elders from our ward. Apparently their area is quite a bit bigger than ours so we had to walk a lot and mostly uphill. Our last lesson was the last house basically up on the mountain. Walking up there wasn't so bad and I got to see some cool birds but it was awfully far away so we didn't have any lessons right before or after. I also saw a bunch of jackrabbits up on the hill because it's a lot more deserty up there.
On Wednesday we had a normal day but for our last lesson we watched "Joseph Smith: The Prophet of the Restoration" with some investigators. We had popcorn and candy. It was the first time I had seen it in Spanish which was interesting, and I was happy to understand it all. It was a really spiritual lesson even though we basically just watched the movie. Afterward Elder Bauer and I testified of Joseph Smith and the Spirit was definitely present.
Today we played monopoly with the zone leaders. I did okay and got the orange monopoly (the best one) but I did a bad trade early on and it all came crashing down...
That's basically all the cool stuff that happened this week. I did also have a really cool Spirit guided contact to find a new investigator yesterday but it's a little hard to explain. Just know that it was cool.
Here are the birds!
Northern Mockingbird (Not a "Mockingjay" like all the Americans think. Those don't exist)
Red-tailed Hawk (Go Utes!)
Sorry, no spiritual thought this week. I've been slacking a bit... It'll be good next week.
Well, thanks for reading! I hope that everything is going well for you all!
¡Les extraño y les amo!
