Needless to say, it was a pretty good pday. I don't think I'll have another one quite like it the rest of my mission.
It was really fun, too, because we got to contact a lot of people before the game (when they weren't completley drunk). We got a lot of questions and it was a really great contacting activity! ....after we left at halftime the only people who would talk to us were the ones playing beer pong, so... oh well.
This week went pretty well. Thursday we went on exchanges with the Plaquemine sisters, because sister Hill has been really sick. It was so much fun being back in the ghetto. Those people are completely different from anyone else in the world. They don't always love to listen, but they always love to talk. You sort of have to adopt their speech patterns, too, or they'll shut you down and won't listen to a word you say. Sister Baba is so cute :) She's a temple square sister, so coming to plaquemine was definitely a change for her.
Friday was ZTM (zone training meeting) and sister Hoskins did a fabulous job instructing. It was funny, because I could throw out random quotes from the first 10 months of my mission and either Elder adkins or Sister hoskins would get most of them. If Elder Ryan was down here I'd be complete :) We had aREaLLY good lesson with our investigator S, and we invited him to be baptized on the 27th! He even came to chruch on Sunday (it's a big deal because he works 7 days a week and he didn't even ask for sunday off, they just gave it to him this week.) So he's praying about the 27th and we're moving full steam ahead! The Lord realyl does work miracles when you do His will. We had been worried about inviting him to be baptized on a specific date, because we know coming to church is hard for him. but we felt prompted to anyways! And here we are :)
Saturday...well, you've seen my saturday.
Sunday was really good too! We did splits (meaning I went with the Relief Society president and Sis Ririe went with one of the 17-year old girls) and covered a lot more ground. We had pancakes to break our fast and got to jam out to primary songs on the piano. So it was a good day and a good week!
This week we have meetings galore and nothing quite that eventful. I don't think much can beat this week for eventful.
