Brush it off

I was brushing my hair this morning and accidentally hit my companion
with my brush. She made a sarcastic comment, and then I told her that
she just needs to brush it off.

Also, happy late Fourth of July!
Btw, our pday is today so that we could go to the temple. The temple
is always great. It was exactly what I needed this morning.

Anyways, it feels like it has been forever since I have emailed home
even though it was just 2 days longer than normal. This week (plus 2
days) has just been long.

Nothing overly exciting from this past week. We did lots of service.
We helped at a food bank last week and we also did 6 hours of painting
at the same place between two days (which was good but was just very
long and exhausting). I also had exchanges, and I went to Sister
Johnson's area. It was kinda weird because they actually had a lot of
lessons lined up the day/night we had exchanges. Completely different
from my area.

We also went to the VC three times with some different members to
watch the new Restoration videos with them. I can basically quote them
now, but there is always something new that stands out to me each time
I watch them. The members all loved the videos as well.

We took Roger and Heather to a baptism of someone else on Saturday. It
was a great baptism, but I don't think it made either of our
investigators desire to be baptized stronger... but it does give us a
reason to review baptism with each of them once more.

We also had zone conference this past week and also two district
meeting since I wrote last. These are always great because it helps me
not only know how to teach others to help them be converted to Jesus
Christ and His gospel, but it helps me know how I can be more
converted to Jesus Christ and His gospel. It always comes back to
CPR—church, pray, read.

To go along with conversion, this past week I broke down Alma 5 and
went through all the questions. It was a great reflection for me on
those things that I could work on, but also a great reflection on how
far I have come.

Love y'all!
