This ward is making it very difficult to leave! Yesterday there were multiple families stealing our food calendar to make sure they got on there before I left. One of them came up to me and told me how grateful he was I came to his ward. It kinda made me laugh because he said, "There hasn't been a missionary here before that would actually take time to get to know my kids, play with them, and then share a spiritual thought that would make them want to go on a mission. Well, one that could do that and actually have a civilized conversation with me and my wife." I couldn't help but laugh a little bit.
Today we had a member who had to cancel on us for dinner take us out to lunch. We asked him if it would be ok if we stopped by the dry cleaners so I could get my stuff done before I left for Australia. When we got there I had my wallet out, but he just pushed my hand down and paid for it himself.
Basically, the best ward ever...Ever...EVER! They remind me a lot of people in our ward.
I LOVE IT OUT HERE
