A cool teaching experience this past week was when we got to teach Kelley, a recent convert in the Auburndale Ward. She had some questions about the Plan of Salvation from the Gospel Principles lesson the week before. We were mostly just trying to help her understand this diagram she had because it was kind of confusing. So we had a really good discussion about that. As for another interesting learning experience from Kelley, she taught Gospel Principles this week on repentance, and it was a really good lesson. So she was talking about how Paul preached repentance to the Jews, and in the middle of the lesson she explains "Paul says to the Jews 'Y'ALL CRUCIFIED THE MESSIAH', so they needed to do a lot of repenting!" She also went to the temple to do baptisms for the first time last week and it was cool to hear her talk about that experience. She said it felt like walking into heaven when the automatic door opened up and there were 3 nice old men dressed in all white. She just has an interesting way of describing things that makes you laugh.
This week we did not have a planned P-Day activity for the Zone. After doing one every single week for the last 3 transfers, plus basketball afterwards for some of them, it was nice to have a P-Day that was not so busy. We played Monopoly at our apartment this morning and then we did some cleaning. So that was nice. Last week we had a Zone activity for Halloween, and with all the holidays coming up in the next couple of months we will have plenty of extra activities with the other missionaries.
