This last week has been pretty great! We had a few fun things happen, including interviews, a few Ward parties, and getting a new area book! We opened the week on Tuesday with Mission President interviews, where we had a chance to sit and talk with our Mission President one on one for about 10 minutes. President Killpack is an amazing Mission President, he truly is a Christlike person! We got to hang out with Sister Killpack while we were waiting for our district to finish up, and she's pretty cool too!
On Wednesday night we had a Fall festival in one of our Wards. One focus was honoring Veterans because it was just a few days after 9/11. There were a few nonmembers and less actives there, and there was even one who would avoid making eye contact with us and would turn and walk the other way whenever we wandered near where he was. Some people are so funny! There were another two Ward parties on Saturday. One was a bunch of different dinner parties throughout the Ward, and then all of the people got together at the end for dessert at one of the members houses. The other was a Ward movie night where each group made a short home-video type thing. A few weeks ago we were riding our bikes by at the right time and so we got in the Primary's video, but we got there too late to see it. But we still made it on the silver screen, woohoo!
One last thing is that we've been super busy today! First thing, at 8:00 this morning we went to the golf course and practiced our swings on the driving range for about an hour. We went in preparation for a round we're going to play in a couple weeks. Apparently I have a good swing, but I'm not entirely convinced. Later I was able to get a new suit with a sweet gift certificate to missionary mall. I got some really nice ties too! Then we went to our Zone Activity, which was playing ultimate Frisbee in one of Orem's many parks and eating Costco pizza. Then finally went shopping, and that brings me to sitting here now typing out this email. It's been a full day!
Well, I hope everyone has a great week!
