A Week of Festivities -July 5th, 2016

Hey y'all! 

It feels like it's been a while since we last talked! Well, I'll touch on a couple of the main things that have happened this past week!

Last week was, as I said in my last email, when President and Sister Sainsbury would arrive in sweet home Alabama. And on later in the week we were all able to meet them! Both President and Sister Sainsbury are spectacular, and are a perfect fit for this mission already. I'm so excited to be able to serve with them for the last year of my mission and learn all the many things they have to teach me. 

We also had a great 4th of July! A member in our ward fed us and took us to a pretty cool replica/reenactment place centered around America's history and independence and what not. It was pretty interesting! We were also able to catch some awesome fireworks that night in Prattville with our Zone Leaders. So it was a good fourth:) 

Other than that Elder Stuart and I have been working our hardest to get the ball rolling here in Clanton, and it's slowly coming along! We've had some pretty great experiences and met some amazing people.  Elder Stuart is awesome too! Such a great missionary and has so much potential.I don't know if I told y'all this but his family runs a mechanics shop back home and he's crazy about cars as well. So it's still in the making but we're actually planning on starting our own race team😏 it's gonna be pretty cool.

So yeah it's been a pretty regular but great week! I was also able to go on a couple exchanges with the Elders in our District and that was great. 

Well, I hope y'all have a great week and I'll talk to you next Monday! 

Pics: While in Downtown Montgomery we found this pretty cool graffiti so we decided to go into GQ mode and get some pics. While there we also had some fantastic burgers at this hole in the wall restaurant that has been around for a good minute! Anyways, I hope y'all enjoy!
