Monday- After emails, I got changed and played disk golf on the course here in Carlsbad with the Pecos River Elders. It was pretty fun! After that, we went back to Spanish's apt and picked up Elder Kay. I busted my shins trying to jump a big rail at their apt! My shins were dented and hurt super bad! Went back to the apt to shower and clean up so we could go have dinner at the Freston's! Had Navajo tacos!! That was super good! Then we went to L's and talked with him. Talked a lot about how Satan has tons of influence in the world and famous people! Then we learned that Michael Jackson isn't dead (along with a ton of other famous people)!!! lol :D Super fun. Then we biked back to our apt.
Tuesday- Had studies and then went to District Meeting. I was in charge of the role play section of DM!!! We did a bomb role play and everyone learned a lot! Its amazing how the Spirit will testify of the truths we say! At one part, Elder Gutierrez taught Elder Kay the First Vision in Spanish!! And Elder Kay didn't understand a single word... But, the Spirit still testified that what he was saying was true! It's important that we teach with conviction!! The way we testify and teach matters!!! Then we had lunch at our apt :D. Afterwards we went and taught W and D! What a fun time! We got to read more of the BOM with them! :D They are doing really well!! Then we went out to the W's and started the new member lessons!!! They have such strong testimonies! A helped us teach the restoration to her mom again! Lol. That was super awesome!!!! Love them! AND best of all.....

Then we had a lesson at the Family History Center with A.M.! We read from the BOM and helped her understand it and follow the story line. Then we had a lesson at S's. She READ THE BOM!!!!! She read all of Mosiah 3. That was a great time! We reread it with her and explained and answered her questions. Then we went to Sonic and got a drink at the very end of happy hour! It was when I drifted in on my bike (in a car parking spot!! lol) and pressed the red button as fast as I could!!! I was making sure i got my slushie 1/2 priced! Lol. Got a slushie and then talked with I. and walked with him home! Nice time and REALLY NICE DRINK!!! hahaha. Then we biked to our apt and got picked up by Brother Brown. We had dinner over there and then we got our bikes and went to see some potential investigators, R. and D. We had a good chat with them and got to know them better. That was super good for our relationship! Then we biked back to our apt.

Found out I lost one of my bike lock keys... luckily, i have a spare! :D Then we had lunch and comp study in our apt. Next we biked against 45-60 mph winds and stopped by the Strieby's but, no male was home... so we cruised back across town and went and helped L. in her house with the house work! :D Then we did some weekly planning! We had dinner at the Felt's (chicken noodle soup and home made bread!) and then went to basketball! My shins were hurting from Monday, so I didn't do the best. Just shot from the outside mainly! Super fun night though!

Afterward, we had a lesson at the Family History Center with A! Super nice. Then we did half our family history. A bought us and the Pecos River elders a pizza to share. They gave me the pizza... so I took off on my bike and then ran around the apts twice! They couldn't catch me! Hah hah. The pizza was MINE!!! lol. But, I was nice and let them in after I locked them all out! Hahaha. We ate pizza and had a great time! Fun night.

Super excited and love these people! We got called out of gospel principles to have a stake correlation meeting. Then we went to Priesthood class. :D. After church we went back to the apt and had lunch. Elder Kay packed some more. I wrote a letter and wrote in my journal too! Slow day because he has to pack and get ready to leave. It's sad to watch your companion pack up to leave. Then we went and had dinner at the Barney's! Super great time. Had breakfast and then took some boss pictures there! Did a few magic tricks as well! Then we went to the family history center and Elder Kay gave Rudy a baptismal interview. :D Super great day. Really tiring too!
