There were ups and downs this week, but overall it was pretty awesome.
On Thursday, we had a zone conference and a general authority was
there. The general authority was Elder Johnson of the Seventy, as in
David Johnson’s uncle, so that was really cool to meet him. I was able
to talk with him a little bit after the zone conference. The zone
conference was also a lot of fun because four of the five California
Elders from my MTC district were there. Elder Richards, Elder Walker,
Elder Austin and myself were all there. Only Elder Ewald was missing.
Four of the nine zones in the mission were there, so there were a lot
of missionaries. They were spread from Santa Clarita to Bishop.
On Friday, I got to go to the Los Angeles Temple. Mia Salamanca, who
recently was baptized, did confirmations for the dead for the first
time (she didn’t do baptisms), so we got to go with her. It was great
Well, I love you all. Thanks for your letters, emails, and prayers. I
wish you the best!
