Bakersfield, CA (West)


Elder Garett Summers

Week 19

Hello family,

This last week went well. We went on 2 exchanges this week. One with the district leader and another with the zone leaders. Usually we don't go on exchanges with the zone leaders but they decided to go with us for some reason. The exchanges were good. For our exchange with the district leader Elder Summers went with the district leader and I went with the district leader's companion, Elder Bendorf. He was a pretty nice guy who has been out for 1 transfer. He was from Omaha, Nebraska.

While with him we were out street contacting after dark and we saw someone out by their garage. Now, we try to talk with everyone even if it is a bit awkward, but I think this person was an exception, because we realized that he was peeing out in his front yard. We just pretended not to notice and walked on, haha. We ended up looping back around and got to talk with him later when he was not so occupied.

While on exchanges with the zone leaders one of them said that there were some scary people in one part of their area. The other responded, "They're just children of God". Then the first person said, "Well then, they are just some scary children of God."

We got a new volunteer opportunity, yay! We will be helping out at a library, mostly shelving books. We went to an orientation meeting for it this Thursday. The library was pretty big and I look forward to helping there.
