Presidential Visit

February 17th, 2014

Weekly Highlights: 

Our running route next to a small drainage canal is a fave. We call it Bridge to Terabithia because of its' cool bridges. However, it's been renamed Dead Man's Ditch because they found two dead bodies in it last week. So now when we run, we always scan the water very carefully. 

President Obama visited Fresno. Totally saw Air Force One parked right across the street from the apartment complex at the airport. Pretty cool. 

Next Monday, we are going to Sequoia to see the giant trees! 

I went on an exchange with Elder Rector. He joined the church while I was a missionary and is now serving here in the CFM. He is an awesome missionary! Super genuine and sincere. I love 'em. He plays hockey and such so that's a plus. 

Two of our investigators came to church. Always a good Sunday with investigators. 

We met a member's non-member mother and she is a saint. We went to go visit her grandkids and she totally whipped up a meal out of nowhere for us. She's awesome! 

Spiritual Thought: 

This is a thought from the essentialism training from Greg McKeown... 

He talked about how very little attention and focus we give the here and now. So often we are consumed in the past or in the future, but there is such satisfaction in the "here and now" of life. As we focus on the MOST important things now, we will have joy in fulfilling our essential mission. 

Well I love you all! Don't stay sick, get better soon!
