This week has been fun and full of interesting things. Tuesday we had a lesson with Harlan. We had another appointment for later that night but it was with a single woman and we hadn't been able to find anyone who could come with us and so Harlan volunteered! It was awesome. We went and the lady dropped us, but she did ask Harlan to say the closing prayer and he did awesome at it.
Wednesday we had Zone Conference so I was able to talk to Elder Christensen and a few other people from the Olathe Zone, also Zone conference was awesome. They showed us some of the new Meet the Mormon videos that the church has come out with. They are basically extensions to the full length film. I don't think they are out yet but if you go to a visitors center you can watch them, they are super cool. I really liked the Horseman.
Thursday we got a Mini Missionary. So a 16 year old Priest from the Far West Stake came and lived with us for 4 days, his name is Colton. He is awesome he basically just hung out with us and just followed us around. We had him hand out a few Book of Mormons. He left .
Friday we helped a single sister in the ward but up an electric fence around one of her pastures so that her horses can't get out. That was cool, only Elder Staheli got some poisonous plants on his arms and I got Chigger bites all over my legs even though I wore bug spray and jeans. They are so much worse than mosquitos.
we were at the church finishing up weekly planning and some guys were there cleaning the church carpets. Then all of the sudden one of the guys comes in and says "hey there's some guy out here that would like to talk to you" so we were like "sweet" and this guy comes in and has no shoes on and says he has been on a journey and would like to talk about it. So we start talking and it becomes clear that he needs some medical help and is not completely there. It was a crazy experience, he was talking about tulips everywhere that drug people and he ditched his wallet because they track our money and some very specific things about the law of chastity. It was an experience that I will not forget soon. It was also awesome because we had Colton with us. Harlan also had his baptismal interview and he passed! I have also been very humbled because Harlan asked me if I would be the one to baptize him. So that will be awesome.
But this week has been way fun, this transfer has flown by so quickly and now it's already half way through August. I am very thankful for all the support that you guys give me. Keep it up! Make it a great week.
