July 27, 2014

Hey, happy 24th of July.

But most importantly today (or tomorrow for you...)  HAPPY BIRTHDAY SABRINA!!!
Man, you're getting old!  But wiser, too, as I learned from your talk!  That talk was awesome!

Well, sounds like you all had a good week!  I'm glad to hear that!  I love hearing from you all every week!  Glad EFY was fun for Eliza, that you guys got some running in and stuff, and had some fun for the holidays!  Any plans for Sabrina's birthday tomorrow?  

Well, things here have been going pretty well this week, too!  We had a good time on splits with President!  That was an awesome opportunity!  However it was also one of the most stressful days I have had in a long time!  Because a lot of the plans we had for the day fell through last moment, so I was scrambling to get things put together to have some appointments, because President did not want to spend his day with us proselyting.  But luckily we got things worked out.  I was on the phone making phone calls the whole day when we were in the car and I killed the battery on the phone haha, but we got it worked out.  So that was good.  I was just a little bummed because I couldn't talk to President as much as I wanted to.  But it was still an awesome day and I learned a ton.  Then we had Zone Meeting with the President on Thursday and Friday.  That was fun!  Interviews were awesome, and I learned a lot.  And I also found out that I will be training one of the new missionaries coming in in the next two weeks!  So that should be fun! and a great opprotunity!  I am super excited for that!

Also, we had a small miracle this week!  We had a lesson with Brother W on Friday night.  It was the first time we have been able to meet him in almost a month.  We watched the Testaments movie with him and the Spirit was super strong!  And then on Sunday he came to church for the first time ever! And he came the whole time!  So that was super exciting and awesome!  He finally overcame that major barrier and we are so much closer to helping him get baptized now!  

Well, that is most of what is going on here.  I am super sore because during zone conference we played about 6 hours of basketball, futsal, and football straight!  it was so much fun!  But tiring!  

I'm glad that things at home are going well!  Hope you guys ghave a great week! I'm glad the pictures and letters got to you!  

Love You!

Love Elder Wood
