September 8, 2015 - The One with the Blackout

First of all Happy Birthday to my dad! He got older this last week! 

This was a really great week. We were able to teach a lot of people and I was just really good.

Everyone under the sun decided they wanted to move so we spent a lot of time moving people. We helped the couple families pack up and move stuff onto U Hauls and it was actually a lot of fun. I got to sweat a lot and it makes up for my poor morning workouts! I've actually been repenting about that and have gone for a run a few times in the morning. Actually I run and Elder Burkhart rides his bike next to me.

We had a zone meeting this week. The musical number went amazing. I think it sounded really good. The funniest thing was after zone meeting though. The Concorde missionaries accidentally locked their keys in their running car. So how it happened was the one missionary turned on the car while the other one was standing outside.  He then got out of the car and closed the door, not realizing that the door was locked. Luckily we were in Charlotte so they were able to call the vehicle coordinator and get it sorted out. After zone meeting the couple that drove us took us out to a 50's style diner. I had a very delicious hamburger.

Friday this week that was a really crazy storm that knocked out the power in town. Going in between teaching appointments was really spooky. We had to cancel one of them because of a hailstorm. But the other two went really well. It was like driving through a ghost town because none of the street lights were on and the only thing that was illuminating the road was the headlights of other cars. Luckily our apartment had power. 

We had a bunch of people at church this Sunday. Jeff came to church but we will probably end up dropping him tonight. It's a really sad thing but he doesn't want to be baptized because we are the 'one true church. ' Doesn't make any sense I know but that's basically why. It bothers him that other churches are wrong and we are the one true way. We're gonna teach him tonight and make it sound a little less harsh but still get our point across. We'll see if he's accepting or not.

We also had a family at church that we tracked into last week. After we met the lady we found out that she's actually really good friends with a less active member and afterwards we were able to utilize the inactive member to help and we are teaching them all on Saturday.  We're going to reactivate the one girl,  baptize that girl's boyfriend and also baptize the new family. It'll be great!  At least that's what the plan is but when have plans ever worked out?! :(

Send me pictures.  Read your scriptures.
Love Elder Galvin
