The Adventures of Crandall and Preston

I'm a bit behind sending all of you an email. We ran out of time last preparation day... Sorry about that.

Last week we had a super fun Preparation Day. We went to all of the Brutus's that are on Ohio States' campus. We went with our investigator. We took some priceless pictures.

Every Monday evening at 6:30 we have been visiting with S and D. S is from Peru and D is from Mansfield. They're a cute couple. S is coming closer and closer towards baptism every time we meet with her. D isn't as invested as S is. We know that if she were to join that he would be really supportive. Also, D and S came to church yesterday!! It was nice having them there.

On Tuesday we were on exchanges with the Madison Lake Sisters. I was with Sister Folsom for the day. Sister Folsom has been out for 3 months and is really diligent. I love how much she loves the work. We found a few potential investigators while we were working together. I love working with Missionaries who are still green. They have a lot of fire in them. Wednesday was District Meeting. Elder Cameron our District Leader is super cool. He plans really fun activities for us to do. What I love the most about them is that not one of them are the same. We talked a lot about our testimonies of God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ. He has us write our thoughts and feelings in our journal. Which lead to us talking about the Prophet Joseph. It was a perfect preparation for Zone Conference. President has all of the Zones read "Path to Palmyra" and "The Coming Forth of the Book of Mormon" so that we could have a discussion about it. I noticed the Spirit being particularly strong  as we talked about the Smith families journey to Palmyra. They went through a lot. Although they went through a lot their lives went bad. They had each other. And Joseph became a strong man because of it. Zone Conference is perhaps one of my favorite events. Good food, even better Spirit, and people that I love. What could be more joyous than that?! Well a few things come to mind.... But I won't say it. :) Ohio had their annual State Fair... And guess what! We contacted there! It was so much fun! We saw a lot of great people who were interested in learning more. Among that we saw a lot of fried food booths. I kid you not, there was not one healthy thing out there. I did partake of a few of those things... And I regret nothing. #fairfood We saw a huge cow and a Brutus made out of BUTTER!!! It was crazy!!
I feel like the whole week went by super fast.
Any who, have a great week everyone!
