September 6, 2016 - Week 21

Hello everyone!

This week was pretty good but it has only been 5 days since my last email so not a whole ton of stuff to write about. 

Because I am the District Leader I interview investigators being taught by the missionaries in the District when they get close to baptism. Last night I interviewed a kid named Terrance who will be baptized tomorrow. He has had a rough past and now that he got kicked out of his parents home he wanted to change his life. He is 18 so he is getting baptized into the YSA ward, it has been really good for him to get to know a lot of people and get fellowshiped pretty well. 

Saturday we will be having a baptism for a 9 year old we have been teaching. His parents are members (the dad is super less active though) but because he is 9 he will be a convert to the church so it'll be pretty cool. He is Samoan so the culture of the family is great, the baptism and Confirmation will be in Samoan.

So right now being a District Leader is starting to get crazier and crazier, i have been going to these "secret meetings". Also there are a crap ton of people about to get baptized so i have a crap ton of interviews and baptisms to do. It is exciting/scary/confusing/amazing.

Well, like I said, not a ton of stuff going on. It is Elder Taylor's birthday today so we had pancakes for breakfast...I'll be eating chili dogs all week for lunch...Elder Snelgrove cooked 2 pounds of Black Beans at once for some reason...I have gotten into the habbit of making steak rice burritos for lunch just cause it is cheap, good luck cholesterol... That is pretty much it.

Love  you all!!!

Elder Strong
