First of all, Happy Mother's day to all the mother's out there for yesterday (I forgot to mention that in my last email... sorry)
So this week started well. We had to take Elder Oleson to the Kingston Hospital on monday night because his tooth was killing him, and that was the only place with a dental unit open. He got an infection, but he is fine now, they gave him some anti-biotics and they have helped.
Kingston and Betty are doing well, we were able to see both of them this week. They still weren't able to come to church, but we had a really good lesson. We are hoping to get a member out to see them with us this week, so hopefully that will go well.
Thursday night we were able to go to youth. The Ward Council has asked that each week at least one group of Elders go to Young mens to support the youth and be an example to them. It was fun, this week it was joint and we played football. It got a little bit crazy, and all of the young women just ended up standing around because they were scared. Good reason though, one of the young women got hit about five times in the same place (I won't say what place, poor girl) so that scared them all away. So it was just pretty much us four Elders (there were all four of us there as the others had investigators there), the young mens leaders, the two young men we have, and bishop playing. It was fun, my team were totally kicking butt, until they said "next goal wins" and the other team scored. But we still won!
We also went out to an part of our area that we never go to. With good reason too! First, it is almost impossible to get there. We had to take a train from Sutton to Wimbledon (it was weird but cool being back there again) and then from there get another train to Oxshott (where we were going) and of course both ways, as we were pulling into Wimbledon our other train was just leaving so we had to wait another half an hour. Second, it is so posh out there!! One of the houses looked like a castle, no joke! So needless to say we won't be going back there!
We have done more then that this week, I swear, but I don't really remember. Well this will have to do.
Just gonna end with a little joke Elder Oleson told me this week... What does a tricycle and a duck have in common? They both have wheels, except the duck.
I love you all!
Elder Zach Mitchell
