First and foremost, the Lacey 3rd boat has been rocked in the past 48 hours.
The band is breaking up and the Elders were ETed this morning - Elder Sheehan is going to the blessed land of Silverdale and Elder Leber is going to be a Zone Leader in Bremerton. Another missionary needed to go home for medical and Lacey 3rd got the receiving end of it all. The ward is so bummed to have elders taken out, so it looks like Sister Harris and I are in for another ride taking over the investigators the elders were working with - the fun never stops. It's been a very good two weeks indeed.
Our Memorial Day we spent in Olympia with the sisters walking around downtown, taking pictures and eating at a tiny asian restaurant. It was difficult finding things that were still open for the holiday that would also not give us food poisoning.
We also stalked the local graffiti and found some great ones.
"Righteous women have changed the course of history and will continue to do so." - Julie B. Beck
(Just like superheroes.)
A quote that I thought I'd forward on to the world that I liked this week:
"Latter-day Saints whose eyes are single to God’s glory see life from a vastly different perspective than those whose attention is directed elsewhere. Such members, for instance, care little about receiving credit or recognition for their good deeds. They are more interested in feeding the Lord’s sheep than in counting them." --- Marlin K. Jensen
Remember that the Lord is far more interested in the one, the individual, and personally bringing them back to the fold than we tend to be. God just isn't a numbers man. Each and every soul is precious. (see D&C 18:10-15)
