Transfer Planning and NFL Football Players

Good morning,
It was another great week and a lot of cool things happened this past week. It will be a shorter update than usual since we are emailing today instead of Monday since we will be driving all over the state for transfers.
Monday, we spent the morning beginning transfer planning and we actually got most of it done before about 3pm when we went to the stake center and played basketball for the rest of the afternoon. Then Monday night we went to FHE with Trey and he really enjoyed it. I thought that he would think that it was kind of silly but he really enjoyed it and got into it! 

Tuesday, we spent the morning transfer planning a little more and we got a lot done in the office.  There has been a missionary who has been struggling with things that have been going on back home and has really been discouraged. President really wanted to find a way to help him stay motivated and so that afternoon, we went with President and this missionary to Detroit to meet Haloti Ngata from the Detroit Lions, who is highest paid defensive tackle in the NFL! We got to go to his house and meet him and his family. It was a really cool experience to meet him and spend time with his family. They live a very humble life and Haloti was really down to earth and had a good conversation with this missionary while me, President Jacobsen, and Elder Haddock kept his kids entertained! It was an awesome experience. Then we drove back to Lansing and President Jacobsen took us out to eat at 5 Guys! 

Wednesday, we drove to district meeting in Sturgis (which is right at the bottom of Michigan and part of their area goes into Indiana! Elder Mafile'o is the district leader and he did a great job at the meeting, we were really impressed with all of the missionaries in his district. After District Meeting we went to lunch with them and then drove a half mile to the Indiana border and took pictures by the sign before heading back to Lansing. We spent the rest of the day doing things in the office to prepare for transfers next week and then taught Trey that night. 

Thursday, we got to teach Haley, one of our super awesome investigators and then we met with President for a little bit before driving to Greenville for a doctors appt. Thursday night, we went over to President Jacobsen's and called all of the new Zone Leaders and Sister Training Leaders.

Yesterday, we had transfer calls all morning and then we  got to teach Michael, a new girl named Tatiyana, and Trey. All three of the lessons went really well and all of them them are doing really great in the gospel! We spent the rest of the day doing some last minute things in the office. Today we are driving to Mt. Pleasant to attend the baptism of a girl named Calie that both me and Elder Haddock got to teach while we were there. She decided to be baptized a little under a year ago but decided that she wanted to be baptized on her birthday (since it has emotional significance because of the events that surrounded her birth where she almost died and the doctors told he that she was a miracle).  So that is happening today!

It should be another great week! I am excited for another great transfer here at MSU!! Thanks as always for the prayers and support!!!
