So we had a really really crazy week! Involving zone conference, a car accident, exchanges a wedding, and a baptism!
Sowe had zone conference, and something really really big happened...WE GOT SMARTPHONES!! It is really strange to have a smartphone again, it's basically the same as our tablets but just smaller. But most of zone conference was just talking about how to effectively use technology. Facebook, smartphones, etc. It was pretty nice, and now I feel more comfortable using technology!
Soalso pretty crazy, we were biking down the road and I look up and I see another bicyclist flying, legit flying, through the air. He had just been hit by a car!! So Elder Fielding and I were first on scene and called 911 and stuff. The guy wasn't hurt too bad just had some cuts and bruises. But the lady who hit him was very distraught. I felt really bad, she was weeping and wailing.
Ok, so the wedding. The sisters have been working with this family for a very very long time, and all the children have been baptized. But the parents were waiting to get married so they can have family and stuff in town for it. But as it turned out their family couldn't come, but they were committed to get married and baptized. So they are from Micronesia, so at their wedding was a feast! They had filled four entire long tables of food. Awesome.
So right at the end of the wedding we started our exchange. I went with Elder Ortmann, which was a hoot and a holler. Then we went out and mostly tracted. So lots of knocking and talking to everyone on the street. Had some good times and met some good people, not in our area but people in their area need the gospel too.
Last but definitely not least baptism!!! The sisters had 3 baptisms and we had 1! It was pretty nerve-racking, it was supposed to start at 11 but people were late, including Chris (our recent convert). So we started like 20-30 minutes late, but it was such an amazing service! Many tears were shed. Then the next day, yesterday, was the confirmation. Which Chris was also late to haha. But it happened! Then after he just goes and talks to basically every member. The ward is super accepting of him, then after the High Priest group leader talks to Chris about going on teamups with us and he is super down.
Oh yeah today we went to the dojo with some MMA fighter members. Pretty tiring but super fun.
Anyway, I love all y'all
Have a great week!!
