Another Fantastic week in the D.C. South Mission

Hello family!!!

Another fantastic week here in the D.C. South Mission. We didn't do a
whole lot last p-day. We ended up playing 2 vs. 2 football since our
zone didn't do anything. We talked to the zone leaders of my last zone
about coming over and playing with them since we only live 5 miles
down the road. We had been in contact most of the morning with them
but it ended up not happening so we just played a small game.

Yesterdays it was Elder Thomas's birthday. We went to Ghengis Grill
for lunch to celebrate. It was fun. I haven't eaten there since i was
serving in Centreville 8 months ago.

It has been a very slow week. I am getting along with my companions,
but we have really different personalities as well as working styles.
I guess I'm going to have to tuff it our for another 4 1/2 weeks. Its
not as bad as it sounds. I am doing great!

We have a really busy week coming up so that's good. Keeps us focused
and motivated for the next little while. So our missionary tree had
its first official day today. I am going to post some pictures on
Facebook about it so the word can continue to go out to all of the
ward members. We think that it is going to increase the members desire
and motivation to do missionary least that is what it is
intended to do.

I had the opportunity to help with the sacrament today. I got to act
as one of the priests and said the blessing on the water while my 2
companions passed with the deacons. I don't think i have done that in
over 2 years. It was really awesome to do that. I didn't realize how
much i liked doing that until i actually wasn't doing it anymore.

Last night we were able to go over to a members home who had a non
member family coming as well. So we had dinner and then we went to
their basement and played ping pong, as well as foosball. its was cool
to be able to just hang out for a little bit and show that we are just
normal people. We ended up spending our whole night there
surprisingly, but it was really good.

Today i think we are going to hit up the air and space museum. I went
when i was in Warrenton, but it felt really rushed so i hope today
will be more fun. We are going to go with the Sterling Park elders so
there will be 5 of us. Maybe i will get some sweet souvenirs.

I'm still a little peeved at the mail people. They couldn't figure out
that it was supposed to be square instead of court. I guess that we
will see how it goes. I think that this Christmas is going to be good.
We have a good member in the ward that is inviting us over.

I still wish that i could give you more Christmas ideas. I could go
for a nice hoodie. Have Chase or Dylan help you pick it out if you
choose to do that :) For Dylan i think anything camo. I know that he
does really like Dr. Pepper so there is an idea but i know that it
isn't very good. Just go to Ace and walk through the sporting goods
and say a prayer for guidance :)

Today is going to be a very monumental day. I am going to dry clean
one of my suits after 14 months of doing this. I know it sounds gross
but i wear it once a week for a couple hours. They are still in pretty
nice condition so I'm glad about that. Most of my clothing is holding
up. 2 of my short sleeve shirts have stains on them that didn't come
out so i have dubbed those as my sweater shirts. Hide the stains.

I'm happy to hear about everything that is going on with you guys.
Sounds like everything is going good and that if its not that it is
getting better. If it makes you feel any better i am not going to win
anything from my Christmas party either. Maybe a Christmas card or a
small gift from the mission.

Nothing else too exciting going on right now. I love you guys. Look
forward to seeing you in a couple weeks!
