Season 3: Episode 12 "The one with campus"

Hello hello!

This week was a great week! On Monday, we had a Zone Development Day, which meant that after we had gotten everything that we needed to get done in preparation for the upcoming week, we met together as a Zone and did some activities together that included charades and volleyball! It also included a some training on how we can better help the areas in which we all serve! It was a really fun day!

On Wednesday we had interviews with President, and I always enjoy those. We talked about my previous areas and how they were doing as well as companions. We discussed how I can better improve and such. After interviews, while we were waiting for the other missionaries (with whom we share the car with), Elder Ellsworth and I got a chance to go on the University of South Florida campus! There are people walking around EVERYWHERE haha I was in heaven! It was a little strange talking to people that were close to my age, and strange to think that this is where I'd be if I wasn't serving a mission.

On Thursday, our phone died. Actually it split in two.. We have one of the old school slide phones, and normally (how it should work), there are two pieces together that slide into a QWERTY keyboard, and the other side has a touch screen. Well, the pieces holding these two together had been getting looser throughout the week, and finally Thursday Afternoon it fell apart... I never realized how hard it was without a phone, we couldn't call to get a new one, we couldn't confirm any appointments that we had that day, we weren't able to try to set up appointments! Luckily, it was a night where there were people at the church, so we went there and used one of their phones to call the missionaries who are responsible for phones, and was able to get a new phone the next day. But it definitely was an eye opener!

This week has been really exciting because a lot of the people that we have been working with have been coming to church and are progressing towards baptism!

Thank you for all of your prayers, I hope y'all have a great week!
