Words from Elder Chandon Herring in Washington DC

So this will be brief because i have a lot to do and no time to do it!  Funny because we got up early and lifted then filled water balloons until 10:00am for the zone activity. We had a lot of fun but it was a long day and i am super tired! We got home and i got cooking and cleaning and shopping. We are feeding the Biolos tonight who are an awesome senior couple who spoil us so i decided to spoil them. We are doing cafe rio type burritos. It will be good. Tonight we have a few appts so i hope they hold. This week overall was amazing and again it was so nice seeing my family yesterday! I sure love you guys and i loved talking to you. I am excited to do it again! We had a few good lessons this week. One of them was with Dorenda again. She started by talking about how she was not going to be
baptized because she would be the only latter day saint in her family and she does not like to belong to anything. She feels it limits her. But by the end we had set appts for the rest of month. She says we are her two sons, and she is going to pray outloud if she should be baptized. It was super cool. As we taught elder tilby and i both had cool experiences kind of like giving a blessing. We opened our mouths to speak and opened the scriptures to her and she knew it was true. We spoke what she needed to hear but it was not us. It was one of those super great experiences. I love being a missionary!  We also got a new potential investigator named kim, she has a desire to find truth. We taught the resotration and she loved it! She is inviting her son to join us this next time to get him involved. She is so kind and humble.
I love the faith of the people here!

Thank you all so much for your love and support! I am so blessed to ghave you! Be safe and have a great week! I love you!
