Sorry that I am so late on emailing today. We left pretty early to go fishing with Lavon today. He's a Less Active that we have been working with since I got here and he took us out to Ridgeway to fish over at Wateree Lake. There weren't too many fish biting today, but I caught 2 catfish and Elder Smith caught one too. The big one I caught was only about 1 1/4 pounds, but it was still pretty decent. Lavon is taking them home to gut them and we're going to eat them so that's pretty cool. We had a ton of fun out there.
This week was awesome too. It went by really fast and we had a lot of meetings. At ZTM they announced that we are getting trained on using IPADS on May 22nd! We're supposed to be getting them the first week of June! So that's pretty exciting. General Conference was awesome too. I got alot of insight for myself and for the work out here. Priesthood session was my favorite. That was probably the best Priesthood session that I have seen. I really like L. Tom Perry's talk and also Uchtdorf's talk on Sunday. What he talked about is really relevant out in the South.
Here's a link to Elder Perry's talk:
Here's a link to Pres. Uchtdorf's talk:
I went on a lot of exchanges this week with everyone in my district which was fun. I always enjoy working with all of the Elders in my district. There really isn't too much that went on besides all of that. Easter was really great and it was nice to reflect on The Savior and what he has done for us. We should do that every Sunday, but Easter seems a bit more special when you think about all of it. I felt the Spirit very strongly from Conference and from the Easter Holiday. It was a great weekend to remember how great the Gospel is.
Logan, Janet, Miriam, and Larry are all doing great. They are still attending church and doing their best right now. We are starting the new member lessons over with them and making sure the ward stays involved with that.
FUNNIEST THING OF THE WEEK: On April fools Elder Huntsman, Jeffs, Garrett, and I came up with a good prank to pull on Elder Smith. We got the AP's in on it and we got them to call him in the afternoon and tell him that he was being emergency transferred to Cowpens! HAHAHA. He totally thought it was real and he even packed all of his stuff. Then at the end of the day the AP's called him and told him it was a joke. I even got a few of the members to play along when he told them he was being ET'd out. Oh man it was so funny. We all laughed really hard for a good 5 minutes when he was told it was a joke. He was a great sport and he laughed too. He was a little upset that he had to pack all of his stuff so we all unpacked for him and got it done in like 10 minutes. Man it was so elaborate and it lasted through the entire day. It was great hahaha.
OH! Another cool thing about this week. There was an older lady I met at a injury rehab center because a member in the ward is there for her foot. I talked to her (Delila) and she told me all about her family history and how she wanted it done so she could find connections to her cousins and other family members and so I got some info from her about her parents and family and I started her family tree! It's not done yet, but I've gotten a lot of info on her parents and grandparents so far. It's been fun.
I had a great time this week. I hope that everyone enjoyed their Easter and watching general conference over the weekend!
I will find out if I will be transferred out on Saturday night. There's a possibility that I will stay but I really don't know whether I will leave or stay.
