For FHA we stoned an Elder

This is the pic in the flyer we posted around the Stake.
Like Eldr Bayles tie?

Wednesday: Yay! Transfers!! It was nice for once to not to get transferred or have my Companion get transferred, so no packing or anything.  However, as Zone Leaders, we have to make sure everything
runs smoothly for the people in the Zone. All was well except for a companionship coming in, they got lost, and we had no way to contact them. They got there eventually though!

Thursday: With the new zone, we had the opportunity to give a short training, then do a get-to-know you, where we passed a ball with questions on it, and people answered them. It was a good fun way :)
Was able to meet with Isabel, she is doing  a lot better at learning! It is great to see! She is getting baptized May 30th

Friday: Indiana has been giving us a hard time. He refuses to admit that he knows that these things are true. He just really wants to be rebellious! He contradicts himself a ton, he just really needs
strong spiritual experiences, so that he would have the testimony of Joseph Smith, "I knew it, and I knew that God knew it, and I could not deny it, neither dared I do it; at least I knew that by so doing I
would offend God, and come under condemnation." (Speaking of the first vision)

Saturday: Service Saturday!! We helped move one of our YSA's family, from 9am-Noon. It was rainy, and super un-organized move. They also have a whole bunch of dogs that would constantly want us to throw the ball for them.... Haha. We also had a lesson with Elaine, who is a member
whom the Stake President promised if we visited, we would see the work increase. She has been pretending to be an investigator. Let me tell you... She has been the most difficult investigator I have
ever worked with. She has a whole bunch of concerns I've never heard of. Haha but it is good, keeps us on our toes.

Sunday: I gave a talk in one of the wards, before I went up to speak, I was told that the Stake President's Son-in-law was in the audience who isn't a member, so I quickly changed the talk to the
Restoration so I can teach him the first lesson. It worked! Met with him the next day and put him on date to work for the 13th of June. Besides that, a lot of people that we were expecting at church weren't even there :( Always sad when that happens.

Monday: We have been really wanting to have more love and unity in the Zone, so we thought we would do a Family Home Afternoon together with the Zone. We put Elder Elder (Yes, that is his name, not a typo) in charge of it, he did an awesome job. He read a scripture about how Satan tries to get us with fiery darts, so he played the role of an investigator, and he gave all of us tennis balls (Representing the darts) then told us to pelt him with them.... Haha yep. For FHA we stoned an Elder. But we did it again, this time had missionaries to help protect him, they has chairs as shield. Then
we pelt him again, but he has been praying, so he has tables set up in front of him. Then again, but he has been reading scriptures, so he had a table to protect him. Then again with fellowshippers with shields as well. Then so on and so forth. It was cool.
I've gotten 1 package from you. Then Kayla's card. 
We have a super busy day tomorrow with appts. Which is a great Birthday, but we are going to celebrate with a family on Saturday for an hour.
I do feel kinda old. No longer a teenager!!   
Yeah, most people here are coming home from mission rather than leaving.
Thanks for the fancy email, haha. Have an awesome week!
Love you!
Elder Wrathall

  1. Scott had a friend in high school with the last name Elder, so he was an Elder Elder!
