|Elder Goodrich, Taylor, Kochevar & Stradling|
Much to our surprise this week, President Hill showed up to our Book of Mormon devotional. We had an awesome time with him and it was really cool to hear some of his insights and listen to him teach. We spent a lot longer than usual doing the devotional which was alright by me since it was such an awesome one. After we finished he requested to talk with Kochevar and Uzoho alone so they went to talk with him while Martineau and I grabbed a quick snack. When they finished with him they came in and spent some time telling us what it was that he had said to them and instructed them on. Once they finished telling us everything we all went on out to teach. For Kochevar and I we spent the entire morning just contacting. We contacted for 3 straight hours before we took a break for lunch. After lunch we went back out to teach some people and visit a few more members. We spent a good chunk of the evening with a member of the bishopric, Ben. He also happens to work for the mission and served in our mission just a few years ago. He's from Cape Coast. We had an awesome talk with him about the mission and about being a missionary. When his wife, Pearl, got home she fed us a quick snack before we took off to go see a few more people.
Today was totally chill! We slept in, cleaned the kitchen, showered, and then went to the mall to see all the other guys and buy some nice American food and donuts. After an awesome lunch of a double BBQ cheese beef burger with fries and a coke, we went to get ice cream as a treat, and then we went home. We dropped all of our stuff at the apartment and then came to the cafe to do some emailing. It's been an awesome, super chill day spent with Kochevar and Martineau. Not a bad start to the Christmas season!
