The week has been good. It’s always a long one when you have 10 days between p-days, but we were really blessed because we had a Zone Conference on Tuesday and then from there we went on exchanges, which always go by really fast. It didn’t even seem like it was 10 days between p-days. The past week has been pretty good! I am trying really hard to remember exactly what happened... We did have a really cool experience on Monday. So about 2 months ago, Elder Oswald and I met a young boy and his mom at the park. I don’t know if I mention him in emails back then, but he found us at the park and starting talking with us and telling us how he had been visited by missionaries in the past. We tried to work at setting stuff up with them for a while but nothing happened. Then last Saturday I believe, we met a different boy who was standing in front of his aunts house. He said to come back on Monday and we could talk more. So we came back on Monday, but instead of finding him, we found Josiah and his mom who we met two months ago! It was crazy. We had no idea that they lived there. It was really cool to see the way that the Lord led us there to that home. He worked through another young man so that we could meet them again! And now we are going back Sunday!
Zone Conference on Tuesday we talked a lot about how to actually use the online proselyting in their areas and how to apply it. It went really well! We have three Zone Conference next week! But after this Zone Conference, we went on exchanges with the McMinnville Zone Leader and his trainee. I was able to go with the trainee, Elder DeHart. We had a really good exchange! It was really cool because Heavenly Father knew that we talked about online proselyting in Zone Conference, and He gave us an amazing experience to apply it right after during that exchange. On Tuesday evening we met a boy about 13. We talked for a minute and set up a lesson over Facebook chat the next day at noon. We gave him a pamphlet to read. The next day at noon, he had already read the pamphlet and we were able to have an awesome lesson with him over Facebook chat! It was really cool! And amazing to see the Lord give us that opportunity to do that.
Next week will be crazy. We have Zone Conference in Redmond on Tuesday (I will get to see Elder Oswald!) and then we are going on exchanges with the Bend and Redmond Zone Leaders while we are over there! Then we head back Wednesday and then Thursday and Friday we have Zone Conferences again, the week is going to fly by! I’m going to maybe see if I can email Brother graham and see if he would want to meet us for dinner as we are driving through, but we will see.
