Week Fifty Eight - Testimony of Girls Camp and Last Meeting With President Durrant!
I went on an exchange this week with Elder Bowden to Plano. Plano is a rough area. It is a very rich town, very few Hispanics, and they have nothing going on there. So it was a long day of knocking doors. But it was a nice little change of scenery for a day.
On Wednesday we had a specialized training, where all the Spanish missionaries in the mission get together for a meeting with President Durrant. It was our last meeting with President Durrant; he goes home in two weeks! So we pretty much said goodbye to him. He has tried very hard to talk as little about basketball as he possibly could for his three years as a mission president, but it has been hard because his missionaries are constantly asking him about his basketball glory days. So at this meeting, he finally gave in and showed us a three second video clip of him dunking a basketball when he was at BYU. But the neat thing about it, and the only reason why he showed it, was that the teammate that passed him the ball was Brian K. Taylor, our new mission president! So that was pretty stinking cool. President Durrant is a boss and I am going to miss him. If anybody would like an idea of how great this guy is, y'all should read a book called A Dad, a Boy, and a Ball, written by George D. Durrant. But I am super excited to meet the new mission president and see how things change. We meet him next week!
We had a great week, worked hard, and I feel good.
-We are still really well fed by members.
-Pizza for Lunch around 12 would be nice on Thursday : )
-I don't need anything, thank you!
-no lunch... yet
Thanks for understanding. Happy to hear all is well at home. Tom, I know how ya feel! Love and miss you all, and I pray that everybody has a great week!
