Another busy week! We had so much to do! We have something called a zone training every month and this past week we had one. To start it all off on Tuesday we had a meeting down in Rancho Cordova. All the sister training leaders and zone leaders go and get trained by the Mission President and Assistants. Then we all take what we learned and prepare a training that applies to the missionaries in our zone. So we spend a couple hours on Wednesday and Thursday to prepare this training. We focused on becoming more like our savior and how we can develop his attributes. Then we moved in to talking about finding, teaching, and baptizing. We had a couple missionaries share experiences from their lives and their missions. It was amazing the spirit that was there. The training went really well. Everyone loved it. So we were happy about that. Glad that it's over until next month ha-hah. Just kidding.
We had a couple of really cool experiences this week. On Thursday night we taught a couple of new investigators we found the week before. Missionaries were teaching the girl before when she lived in Salem Utah! Hah, small world huh? But then she moved to Sacramento and lost her way a little bit. When we met her she said she would like to learn from us again. So we taught her, her boyfriend, and their friend. We taught the restoration and she was really taking it all in. We gave them a Book of Mormon and she hurried and grabbed it and said to her friends, "This is mine. You guys can get your own if you want one!" It was funny. Anyways they were really cool people and we are hoping to go back this Wednesday again to teach them.
4th of July was so fun! We had a pancake breakfast with our ward and another one. Then later we had a zone BBQ! We had all the missionaries from our zone and all the office workers and President and Sister Jardine too. We had tons of good food! Then we played some games. It turned out great. The zone bonded a lot and that's just what we wanted to happen.
Hope you all have a great week!
Love you guys!
