Transfer Week

Dear Family,

This week was pretty dang fun. For P-day we had another zone activity and we went to the mission office and we played dodge ball and played chubby bunny which was super funny! We did a few rounds of it and it was funny, I wish I had my camera with me, but I didn't. We just kept going around and having everyone put a marshmallow in their mouth, it's pretty funny when you get like 6 marshmallows in there, you can't chew or anything, just smash them in your mouth! :)

We had our appointment with the Pastor and it went really well. We ended up teaching him the whole Plan of Salvation, he didn't believe in it, but we taught it. We drew pictures to go along with it. :)

Wednesday we did service for a family and then helped them with the trim around their 3 kids closets, it was pretty fun and took most of the day.

Thursday we had a district meeting, then I went to Cottonwood on exchanges and we were in South Omaha in the hood and some kids were playing basketball and talking smack to us saying that us white men can't shoot, so we played basketball with them for a bit and it was pretty fun! The oldest was 15 and the youngest was 12 and they all thought they were little Lebron's or something.

Friday we did some service and then had our ward Halloween Party, we went for a ride in a pretty legit teal Jeep. It was fun!!

Saturday was our normal service at a family's home. We helped them lay brick again and almost got it done. We went at 9am and had waffles and then we had dinner, we were there that long. One more Saturday and I think we'll have it done.The little kids they have are awesome, they love to shake our hands and they have this sweet looking Trike that we got to ride around.

After our visit with the Pastor on Tuesday, he invited us to his church on we went. It was Reformation Sunday so there was a guy dressed as Martin Luther and his wife. The Pastor must have told them we were coming because they were right on us when we walked in. I now know how people feel when they come to our church for the first time. The Pastor came out and hugged us and talked a bit to us, we're either really good friends now or he thinks he converted us. :)  It was neat to see how they do things though.

Transfers are on Halloween so we'll see if anything changes with me,

Love you guys!!

Love Elder Searle
