4/18 about a crazy week! First we had activity zone conference over in Chapel Hill..The lesson was really good and it was on "Revelation through Prayer" Then afterwards..we played ultimate Frisbee, volleyball, capture the flag, and soccer, followed by the final relay race..which my team actually won! =) My part in the relay race was to spin around 10 times really fast, and then sprint down the field..i ended up about 3 lanes over from where i should have been! haha.. But..the best part about the zone conference was the announcement that on April 30th, Elder Richard G. Scott is coming to our mission and we're going to have a mission conference! I'm so excited for that! case you haven't heard..about 62 tornadoes touched down in the state of North Carolina on Saturday, 6 of which were actually in our area. A few people died, and a lot of people were left powerless. We, fortunately, were safe the entire time and we never lost power. Unfortunately..we did not actually get to see any of the tornadoes..=( But on Sunday morning, we went out with a bunch of other brethren from the singles ward, and swiftcreek ward, and cleared out a bunch of trees. It was so weird because we would be driving through a neighborhood and everything would seem perfectly fine, but then we would turn down a street and there was utter chaos everywhere! I have never seen anything like it. It was a lot of fun being able to help others out, and a lot of people were very grateful for our service! We worked all morning until it was time to go to church..and then we ended up having to go to church in blue jeans and t-shirts! haha..weirdest experience ever has a missionary.. Someone asked us (jokingly..i hope..) if they switched our p-days to Sundays! haha.. But turned out to be a great experience and an effective finding activity! (which is exactly what our zone needs right now...) Well..i love y'all and i pray for y'all every night! Take care and good luck with everything!
