This week was fun. P-day was relaxing as usual. We just did the usual. Played a couple games of Catan and such. I finally lost a game. I am no longer undefeated in the district. It is a different transfer though. That has to count for something.
Tuesday was district meeting! It was my first one as District Captain. So I did the training. It wasn’t too bad. We talked about using the scriptures when we talk with people. After district meeting we did a bunch of tracting. Not much happened though. We did go to the Dojo to visit Shihan that night though. We are going to start studying Preach My Gospel with him.
We spent a lot of the week sharing messages with the members. We are trying to get them to study Preach My Gospel. It seems to be helping out. We start out by reading part of Elder Ballards conference talk called Follow Up. We want to get all the members more involved in missionary works. This is a good first step.
On Thursday we went on exchanges with the zone leaders. I stayed in Sherwood and was with Elder Beckstead. It was fun. We spent the whole day walking around talking to people. We did a lot of tracting. We met some cool people. Friday we went with Bro. Skow to teach both Tom and Branden. We are slowly making progress with them. Then we went with Bro. Skow to help with the Rhodes move. We got dinner while we were there too. Dinner and service!
Then on Saturday we did more service! We helped Tom do some yard work. It was cool. The rest of the day was a little slower. All of our appointments fell through. So we shared messages with the members. We did the same for part of Sunday. Church was really good. Then we went with Porter on team-ups. He is leaving for his mission in Peru next week. So we brought him along to help him get ready. We’ll be doing the same thing with some of the other youth this week. They have nothing better to do.
And that’s about it. Things are going pretty well. District leadering is intersting and fun. I’m finding creative ways to make it more fun for everyine in the district.
