It was another great week in the 5-1-7!!
I had a really great week. We were super busy as always!
Monday, our p-day was shortened because of the Legacy group that we were doing part of the day.
Tuesday, we had a big MLC (Missionary Leadership Council) where we had the District Leaders there also. I was able to train on Christlike Missionary Leadership. I think that it went really well and I think that a lot of the missionaries got a lot out of it. MLC lasted most of the day and then that evening me and Elder Norton finished up some things in the office.
Wednesday, we drove to Jonesville and went to their district meeting. It was a really good District Meeting and then we went to Pizza Hut afterwards. One of the Elders (who is Polynesian) decided to attempt the Big Dinner Box Challenge (which is a made up mission challenge) where you eat 2 medium deep dish pizzas, wings, and bread-sticks, but he gave up with 2 pieces of pizza left. I am convinced that he could have done it! That afternoon we got to go on campus for a little bit before we drove to Kalamazoo to trade-off with WMU. We had a really interesting trade-off... So for the past week or so we have had a guy from California that has been texting us and telling us that he is coming to MSU to visit campus and has asked us to get him in contact with some people that might be able to help him out. It has been a really weird situation and we have really been creeped out by him because of the amount of text that he sends us and how easily he gets offended if we don't reply soon enough. When I got to WMU I found out that the same guy had been contacting them and was wanting to have a lesson with them. So long story short he starts freaking out about when we can get him a ride from the train station in Battle Creek to Kalamazoo (a 45 min drive). Thursday morning we were supposed to have a lesson with him but he wasn't able to get a ride to our our lesson. The Elder that I was on the trade-off with decided to pick him up and take him to the lesson. So we show up at the train station and are waiting for him but he won't tell us what he looks like or what he is wearing. He then tells us that he can't find us (I should add that we are in the ghetto and we are the only white guys in white shirts and ties) and he tells us to go to a street corner in the open... At this point my mind flashed to all of the movies that I have seen where a hit man lures them into the open so that he can have a clear shot at them and get away. Needless to say I thought that I was going to get attacked by this guy or something. He finally found us and we took him to our appointment. We spent the rest of the day after our lesson with him texting us all day and getting offended at any comments that we made. We found out that he is bi-polar and probably schizophrenic... Needless to say it was an interesting day.
Friday, we planned to drive to Traverse City for out blitz there but we had some stuff come up in Lansing that we had to stay in town for. We are going up to Traverse City tomorrow and I will send pictures next week of all of the leaves.
Saturday and Sunday we had an amazing stake conference!
Today we are going to a corn maze with a whole bunch of the missionaries. We got permission from President to take the transfer van down to the only corn maze that we could find that was open on Monday. It is about an hour away.
It should be another great week!! Thanks as always for all of the prayers and support!!
