Two Words: Satan

Greetings family and friends..

This week was way good. Honestly one of the craziest weeks of my mission. We also spent like 8 hours in the car. But it still turned out to be a really awesome week. If I wasn't so tired right now I'd write a long email and explain all the funny/crazy things that have happened this week. But yeah I feel like a walking zombie so I'm just going to make a list of all the stuff that happened this week. We took some good pics and videos this week so they'll tell the story this week. 

- So this week we had MLC for all the zone leaders and sister training leaders. We had to wake up way early and drive an hour and a half to Iowa city and we were in a meeting for 9:30 till about 5:00 I thought I was going to die. But it was a really good meeting, President's trainings are always straight fire so I always leave super pumped. 

-So after MLC we have like two days to get ready for ZTM and prepare to give President's training and the AP's training to our zone. So we were trying to get on our emails to get the papers for it and for some reason I didn't get the email from the AP's. So we tried to log in on Elder Gundersen's account and he couldn't even log into his email! So we called HQ and they told us his account got deactivated (he just hit 18 months) so apparently HQ thought he was a sister and closed his missionary email hahahaha. It was pretty funny. But we got everything figured out eventually.

-So while all of this is going on I was on exchanges with my former companion Elder McCain who is now in my zone again. It was fun to do work with him again, he's a stud missionary!

- Next we drove 1 hour to Macomb Illinois to do exchanges with one of the DL's out there. We got there and they live in an attick of a super creepy house that's like 120 years old. They pretty much just told us about how there house is haunted so it was a fun night there lol..

-So then we woke up and drove another hour to Nauvoo from Macomb. So we get to the stake center and I'm conducting the meeting and everything and we go to give the first training and Gundy can't find it anywhere so we thought we lost it. So the week was just falling apart on us haha. But we ended up finding it while the STL's were training ( cause no one really pays attention to the sister's training any ways ;) ) but yeah it was a blessing.

-We also had our investigator Kara come to church on Sunday! It was the first time Burlington has had some at Church in a while so we were pumped!! She's looking good to be baptized next month.
We also particpiated in giving a baby blessing for a Less active's child. Her BF was there and we taught him and made him a new investigator as well and he is looking pretty solid as well. 

So that's about it. I'll send some pics and a video tour of bustling Nauvoo lol.

Love you guys
