Elder Butterfield & Elder Rasmussen
tuesday we had a district meeting and i made elder griffiths wear a suit that was way too big for him to the meeting and then during lunch he ripped open his shirt revealing his superman onesie. (he brought spare clothes) then later we went to tract a road and it turned out that the road had no houses on it at all.
Wednesday we had an all elders training at the man. south chapel during which President Ulrich spoke about the atonement for the first 2 hours and then we had lunch and the next 2 hours for sports.. it was so much fun.

"The Tree of Life"

Tuesday, we threw the football around with one of our investigators, then later when we were tracting elder smith really couldnt concentrate so everything he was saying was jumping around and i couldnt help but laugh and the person at the door thought it was quite funny as well.
