It's been a good, busy week! We had a few Zone Conferences throughout the mission and it was fun going down to Woodbridge and up to Ashburn, two parts of the mission I haven't been to yet.
Life as a missionary is going great! We are trying our best to find joy and happiness in every day, pointing out things at the end of the day that made us happy.
Here's Hannah! It was so cool to see her
Our church building is the only LDS chapel
We street contacted this Ghanaian guy, who once he saw us asked "were you two in Ghana 2 weeks ago? You look familiar!" He told us he was meeting with missionaries in Ghana right before coming here. That's actually happened quite a few times. Most people that we meet from Ghana have met missionaries in their country before coming here. It's cool to see how missionary work is going really strong there right now.
Another cool person we met on the streets was this young mother, whose name is actually Dada, from the Congo. We started asking her some questions, and found out she doesn't read English that well, even though she speaks it perfectly fine. We just happened to have a French Book of Mormon and French pamphlet in our car, so we went and grabbed it for her. When we were introducing it to her, she was fascinated and said "where can I buy one of these?" We then told her that was hers to keep, for free, and she was just so happy! It feels good to bring joy to people like that, in such simple ways.
If everything works out, I'll be going back to the Lincolnia Ward is Saturday for the baptism of Desmond, another person Elder Judkins and I taught for a while. So I'm excited for that!
This transfer, each Pday, Elder Ure and I will be at the mission home for Zone activities that are happening this transfer. It's fun to be here with all the missionaries! I love you all! Hope you all have a great week!
