11:23 AM (4 hours ago)
we had a mini Zone Conference consisting of around 50 missionaries. The subject was on family history and how the work we do for our ancestors and missionary work are really one work. This training was perfect as later that day we were on campus at Lone Star teaching a family history course to about 30 people. A little intimidating, however I realized towards the end that I know more than I thought I did, so that was cool.
This week was sweet. We had the opportunity to serve with an local organization here called Special Angels who host a day care for adults with special needs. Aaron played Monopoly with us for most of the time and we had the chance to talk with several of the other participants. Can't really explain the joy that comes through service. Guess you all with just have to give it a try. :)
We continue to work to get to know the members in this ward. Working with more than one ward has been different and a challenge, but a good one.
Love you all, until next week
P.S. Not sure if I've sent this picture home yet. This is Elder Roper, Bishop Ryan(he's the man!, from my first
area Spring Creek), and me on the right.
