Family and Friends,
Another good here in Morehead City! As of today we have a new mission president. That might take a little while to get used to. But it will be fun as well!
We spent a lot of time this week helping a family move out of the ward. They will be moving to the Cedar Hills area, by American Fork. It was fun because that's where Elder Gibb is from so they were talking lots about the area. But we helped them paint some walls, varnish their deck, and fill in some holes in the walls. The day of the move came, and we weren't going to be able to make it to help because we had lots of set appointments during that time. Well. All of the appointments cancelled so after all we were able to go and help them move. It wasn't too fun though because we were still in our proselyting clothes, it was the most humid night I've ever had here in North Carolina, and then halfway through the sky decided to dump hot rain on us. We were soaked head to toe but we packed them all up and shipped them off the next day!
We also had a really good, uplifting district meeting. It was also bittersweet because a good friend of mine, Elder Sommer, gave his farewell testimony. He will be going home tomorrow. I'll include a photo below.
We also had Ward Conference this past Sunday. It was good to hear from the Stake Leaders, and has just added to my testimony of the leadership of the church. They're not always perfect, but they are called of God and hold keys to execute their responsibilities. After church we had what's called a "Linger Longer." I guess here in North Carolina, and possibly other places as well, after Ward or Stake Conference everyone gets together in the cafeteria and we all eat. People bring lots of different food. The fried chicken was my favorite.
I hope y'all are having fun where you are, and have a fun (and safe!) 4th of July!
