Week 47: May 22, 2017

Sooooooooooooo. This week was pretty crazy. For the faint of heart (and weak of stomach) this may not be the email for you. Reader discretion is advised. 

The week started out pretty normally. People being rude, the gospel being true, and the weather being hot and getting hotter. We had the opportunity to go on exchanges with the other members in our district on Thursday and then the Zone Leaders on Saturday. I had the opportunity to go with one of my zone leaders to the Oakland Temple's Visitor's Center. It's a little drive out of the way. We were able to meet with a less active woman who had been inactive for a while and so she didn't know much about the temple. We were able to show her a lot of the videos and resources about the temple. It was really cool. The V.C. is a great tool and place to feel the spirit. On the way home, we were caught in quite a bit of traffic. It was stop and go for a while. We noticed that the license plate of the car in front of us had a "BYU COUGARS" decoration on it. We thought to ourselves, "Wow look! Members!" I turned to my companion and said, "It'd be really awkward if we rear ended them." 😶😐😓🤐. Not 30 seconds had passed before he looked out the side window and didn't realize that traffic had stopped. I swear I spoke in tongues in that moment. I saw the back of the car in front of us getting closer and closer really fast. I said something really brave and calm like, "ALKFJOEIHFKLESJFIOESLSKEJFSKFJELSJFOIESJKSEF" and suddenly  we found ourselves on the side of the road exchanging insurance info. For my first car crash ever, it was pretty.....underwhelming. I'm thankful that no one was seriously injured. Good times. Other than that, it was a pretty normal week. You can bet, I will be roasting my zone leader until the end of time for this.

Also, I've been kinda sick. I've thrown up nearly every night the past few days. Pray for Elder Kaitoku. 

Zone conference is coming up and we'll be doing a musical number "He Will Carry You" by the Mana'o Company. It'll be exciting and I'm looking forward to it! Until next week,

-Elder Kaitoku
