Another awesome week in Stansbury Park!
We did a ton of service this week. We helped out our landlady with her backyard and I learned that you never plant peppermint. Ever. It smells good but it grows like crazy and will take over.
We also had Zone Conference! That was amazing. We are now going to have one Zone Conference per transfer. The Brethren want the mission president to be more involved in the training of his missionaries and the missionaries to see their mission president more often.
I placed the order to cater Panda Express for Zone Conference and it felt great to order three pans of orange chicken. But besides the physical food we were given a spiritual feast on our baptismal covenants and how to teach the doctrine of repentance.
We are meeting with an excommunicated member of who now wants to come back. We talked about the priesthood because he had a bad experience with a priesthood blessing. The member that came was able to bear a powerful witness of the power of the priesthood and it was awesome.
All in all. Every day of the mission is awesome. Nothing I’d rather be doing with my life right now.
