Then Thursday was EXCHANGES!!! I went out of my area to be with Elder Legrand (the missionary from France) and essentially went to my old area back when I was with Elder Peery (Cooley Station and Chapparal). Although I guess they now have a third ward that they cover (the Maplewood ward) so it’s a little different. But it was super fun. I’ve realized that I have honestly missed being in a bike area. I dunno what it is about being on a bike versus being on a car, but when I’m in a car, I don’t feel like a missionary as much as I do when I am on a bike. I dunno what it is, the bike is just part of the whole “missionary look.” But anyway, Elder Legrand had a birthday the day before and all the members in the ward were getting him birthday stuff and taking him out to eat and the day we were on exchanges, brother Sue (Cooley Station ward) took us out to Joe’s Farm Grill for a belated birthday lunch. That was pretty good! And then just stopped by a few people here and there and were able to get some pretty solid appointments set up for their area. And we spent some time OYM’ing some horses. I dunno, it was just a good day and a much needed break from the current situation I’m in.
And this week, we got our new Zone T-Shirts. Our zone is the “Temple View” zone, so it is just a blue shirt with the words “TVZ” on it and a design on the shoulder of the Gilbert Temple, which is pretty cool. And the Stake High Councilmen over Missionary Work offered to buy the entire zone the T-Shirts, so we didn’t even have to pay for them.
Anyway, those are the big highlights of this week! Hope you all have a wonderful day!
