Love You!! Elder Meier
Did you know that this mission is the only mission in the U.S. that has a Lao branch??? Crazy right? #churchistrue
This week was pretty cool! I am just gunna talk about a few things that happened this week. First about an exchange and a miracle that happened during the exchange, then also the first ordinance got to do!!! WOOHOOO!!!!
Well the first thing, So on Saturday we went on exchanges with theBntwood 3 elders! Elder B went to the other area with Elder V, and I stayed in the area with Elder T!!! Elder T is seriously sooooo awesome!!! He is from the Marshall Islands!!! But he speaks English really well, but that's cuz he has the gift of tongues! Anyway, I just think that it's so cool how diverse this mission is, their are sooo many cool people out here that are serving in this mission! People from Korea, China, Marshall Islands, Romania, England, Germany, Tonga, Samoa Philippines, Japan! Like you name it and their is someone in this mission that is from their! It's so friggin cool! So the miracle that happened during the exchange!!! BOOM! So Friday during weekly plannin' Elder B and I were going through the Potentials form, and we decided "Hey! Lets call this guy D--" So we did and he was super open to us coming over! So Elder T and I go to D--'s house and he is super tall!!! Like 6'6 or around that height and we just go in and throw down with the spirit! Elder T shared a powerful testimony and then we invited him to be baptized and he said YES!!! It was the first time someone actually said yes to our invitation in the first lesson! Seriously so cool! He is a really solid guy!!! AHHH so happy!! We weren't really able to see any other 'gators cuz of school and memorial day vacations!
Yesterday I got to confirm A---!!! It was really scary but super cool, I really felt God's love for A--- when I was giving her that blessing. I think it really helped me see and understadn the deep love that God has for all of us, and that when we make good choices he is soooo very happy!!!
To respond to your emails:

Quinn: Sorry about the game....But that's cool that you have all these cools opportunities to go to Philly and stuff. I am jealous that you got to play rugby your junior year. Mom and Dad had me do track instead! I hope you are being safe and not messing up your body!!! Wait you are gunna go to Austria??? FREAK LUCKY YOU!!!! Everything good with the girl you told me about??? She sounds really great.. treaat her good yo
HEY! I am starting to try and budget it more and make some better choices with my spending so I am glad the account was going up with money. :)
J-- dropped us, N--- is busy with finals and J---- is officially an unknown! haha So we are trying to help him somehow get out of some the situations before it's too late! It's sad because he knows he is making wrong decisions but his excuse is that it's all he knows and that's how he grew up. But we are praying for him, if you could pray for J--- to I would love that!
Anyway, all is good. Its hard not to be outside and active in some type of balling! Seriously. I miss playing sports soooo much! We are going to go bowling as a zone so I'll take some pics and then send them!!! hopefully after everything I need to do today, is done!
Love You!! Elder Meier
