Last week, in an area on the other end of the mission, an investigator
that Elder Strain (my companion) once taught asked for Elder Strain to
perform her baptism. So yesterday, we went to the other end of the
mission! Fortunately our mission is geographically very small. It
took about two hours by train. It was a very joyful baptismal
service, and while we were there we talked to one of her friends and
helped her understand what was going on. Her friend is really
interested. It was a great experience overall ^__^
This week, we have a conference with Elder Russell M. Nelson about
digital missionary work on Wednesday, and then we all get new iPads on
Friday. (We're handing in the "test" iPads and getting the "official"
ones, which are a later model.)
Here are some pictures of my area~ It goes all the way out past Landmark Tower, which is about a 45-60 minute walk from the apartment.
There's a lot of history in our area. We came across this memorial one day as we were exploring.
Also, you know how some people, when giving a presentation, toss candy to people who answer their questions? Our mental health advisor gave us onions instead. o.0
