Baptism preparation, temple visits and service

June 22, 2015

Hey everyone, it's been a busy week!
Elder Jorgensen, Brandon, Elder Griffin at the temple.

Monday night we had an interesting lesson with a slightly drunk, large, black women, she was straight from the south and she flirted with Elder Jorgensen the whole conversation. It was very interesting and definitely memorable. She even hugged us both several times -- only super uncomfortable!

Tuesday we had dinner with some members and they took us to Hu Hot, it was super tasty! Ii was a good visit and afterwards we had a great lesson with Brandon in preparation for going to the temple for baptisms with him on Thursday.

Wednesday we had a super busy day planned and all of our appointments fell through. It was super funny and we made it fun, even though it was a bit of a bummer.

Thursday we had planning, it went super good and we got a lot done. That evening we went to the temple with Brandon and it was such a great experience. He kept talking about how amazing it was and it was better than he'd imagined and it was just great. He even gave us a referral afterward. 

Friday we did exchanges and I had fun with Elder Mayberry. He was nice. We had some really great lessons and even talked to a few angry people. One guy was really mad, it was kinda funny because he was telling us anti and he was the one who was upset.

Saturday we did service all day, it was funny because we only planned for about an hour of service and then we got a call and did another two hours and then another call and another two hours. The good news was we got dinner out of it and it was great. Pizza!

Sunday was nice, we taught gospel principles and had a great discussion on the sacrament, the spirit was strong and then we went to priests quorum and had a nice discussion on desire and serving a mission. It was nice and it helped me reconnect a bit with my desire to serve.

It was a good week, lots of fun!
Love you guys!
Elder Griffin
