Not a lot happened this week. We did some service Friday for an older couple that lives next to some members. They are redoing their entire house. They have had missionaries coming to help them for like a year. It's cool to do service.
I bought a super sick Lakers sweatshirt and a dope Bulls shirt for, both for like $16! Gotta love sales. I saw a super sick Scion FRS just a little bit ago. So we were walking into Aldi, a grocery store, there was an old guy that was walking out and said we looked like big shots all dressed up. He told us that when he was a boy whenever they saw people dressed up they would call them bigshots. We told him we were missionaries. After we told him we were LDS he was just like "Oh you're not big shots, you're Mormons!" and walked away. That was super funny.
On Wednesday there was a super big lightning storm at like 3 am. I swear it was like right over top of us. I couldn't sleep. I honestly felt my bed shake a couple times from the thunder! Then on Saturday we got a text from president Fenn about a tornado warning. It was super windy all day. We never saw any tornadoes :( but we did hear from the zone leaders that there were 2 or 3 throughout the mission. Love you all! Elder Garrett F.
