Elder Carillo

Week 54

So last Monday we had our district activity and we went out to eat at some breakfast place. It was pretty good. Then we played blaster tag which is pretty much a nerf war. It was super fun.

On Monday night we started exchanges with our district leader and his companion so I went with Elder James, one of my previous companions. It was pretty fun to go back into an old area and see what had changed since I had been there. We also played some sweet basketball while I was there.

Wednesday was the 4th and we got to watch a movie as a district that day. So we went to some super rich guys house who has a really nice movie theater and we watched 17 Miracles then that night me and my comp stayed up a little later and watched the fireworks from our deck. We live on the third floor so it was a pretty good view. And the entire valley was setting off fireworks so we had a 180 degree view of fireworks.

We have been meeting with a lady named CJ who is super pumped to get baptized. And we are teaching a member who is struggling with things and things were seeming okay so we were thinking of dropping her after our last lesson. But I felt impressed before we went to teach her that we should go in and ask inspired questions. This led us to find out what struggles she was actually going through and it helped her to open up to us. It ended up being a really good lesson and we left her with scripture to read and she messaged us on Sunday how she is ready to talk with us about what she had learned.

It is really cool how the spirit can help when we dont fully understand things. And I gave a talk on Sunday along those lines of how important the spirit is. A funny thing about that talk was that it was only me and my comp giving a talk in that ward so he went up first and only spoke a little over 5 min. Then they had an intermediate hymn and I got up and had 35 min to talk. It was the most amazing thing because I actually spoke for 30 min. And it was probably one of the best talks I have given. I mean thats what I say about all of my talks but this talk was sweet because I didnt even feel stressed getting up and knowing that I had 30 min.

On Saturday we had interviews with our new mission president and he seems super cool.
Have a great week. Live life to the fullest!!
